Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 Review – Power packed and expensive 3


Well we have got the ’s most anticipated and awaited phone the X2, the original failed to deliver as with most initial versions. So we expect the X2 to perform much better in this regard. Lets have a closer look at this powerful phone.

brings most of its products with advanced features and almost always leading by example, and hence there is nothing short of that here with the , it has a powerful camera in a full QWERTY keyboard phone all packed into rather compact phone. It is also worth to note that cameras in Ericsson phones usually perform better than its competitors like Nokia and Samsung. Ohh and dont bother to compare it with .

Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 –   110 x 54 x 16 mm
Pro B7610 -112.6 x 57.8 x 16.2 mm
– 111 x 51 x 13.8 mm
– 113 x 52.5 x 14.2 mm
Nokia N97 – 117.2 x 55.3 x 15.9 (18.2 max) mm

Well the Xperia X2 already has a competition in Nokia X6 in the dimensions area, though Nokia X6 only has a 5MP camera, in terms of other features and 40% lesser price, Nokia might get one ahead on the Xperia X2.

The phone looks good but the expected pricing of around $1000 is little too much for any phone, especially considering that this Xperia X2 doesnt bring anything totally new to the table other than a 8MP Camera on .The phone has a Qualcomm MSM 7200 528 MHz processor and runs a Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional Edition. It has a RAM of 256 MB and ROM of 512 MB. The performance should be slightly better than the competition, but it ultimately depends on the OS + hardware combination, so its justified to compare Nokias running symbian OS and Xperia X2 running WinMo 6.5.

But a big letdown is the internal memory of only 110 MB and supports upto 16GB in memory cards. Unlike say N97 which comes with a 32GB inbuilt memory, this might leave many wondering why was the mass memory ignored.

Apart from the above differences it has typical features of high end phones like A-GPS,3.5mm audio jack, v2.1 Bluetooth with A2DP support,mini USB and a 1500 mAH battery with a 10 hour talk time on GSM.

The Xperia X2 still has a Resistive touch screen unlike the and Nokia X6 model’s Capacitive touch screen which allows multi touch. So even in this respect the powerful X2 lags behind.

We dont expect the phone to be the best seller by any means, but will definitely come as a much improved phone overall compared to the first Xperia.
