I'm not actually totally finished with this review yet but here are my initial impressions. Also, the never ending iPhone comparison: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 vs. iPhone side by side pictures, more images after the jump.
Update: Finally finished reviewing the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10.Updated everything.
At first I thought 4.0 inches would be massive but I'm surprised that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is only a tad taller and wider than the iPhone. It's also thicker by just a few millimeters. Unlike the HTC Legend, there's no hint of metal on the Xperia X10 but the battery cover is made up of soft touch materials. I was excited about the overall design until I came upon my first problem with it: pop-up battery cover. What is it about pop-up battery covers? Do mobile phone companies know that girls actually use their phones and that pop up covers takes a toll on our fingernails?!
Anyways, it's so hard to open the back cover. And that's not the only thing that I don't like about the design. The microSD card and the Simcard slot is hard to reach as you need to remove the battery in order to swap the two.
The screen is really awesome. It actually seems better than the AMOLED on the Samsung B7610.
As for the build quality: it's an awesome looking phone. Sleek and sexy, can't help admiring it every time I look at it. Feels a bit iPhone-y. The sharp edges add something, I don't know, sophisticated to the overall look of the phone.
