Video review of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2

For those of you drooling over the recent announcement of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2, here are five more minutes of pre-release review goodness, thanks to Phone Area.

While the screen is slightly bigger, a lot of the innards remain the same, including the processor. Is that going to be enough to get people to shell out several hundred dollars this time around?

  • Its laggy...
  • The new panels/UI stuff looks pretty nice.
  • I'd get it if I didn't already have an X1
  • Just my opinion here, but I think that over all, the HTC Touch Pro 2 devices are going to outshine this one. Also factor in that this device has no carrier support at this time. In the US that is almost a kiss of death all by itself. It is probably a good phone but I would choose the TP2 over the X2, as will most others. What do the rest of the WMExperts feel about this phone?
  • I will buy a x2 if: X1 gets upgraded to 6.5 It comes with a application for converting videos or a set of proper guidelines Can actually play videos at its native resolution It will not be laggy It wont CRACK All carriers will drop it after a while because SE messes up again. They can prove to us that it can play back videos in "DVD Quality" Their after sale support services are not going to suck
  • "the screen is slightly bigger"
    Well, since I went from the X1 to Omnia2, a screen that's slightly bigger simply won't do it for me. All in all, the X1 is a beautiful and well made device, but inevitably too thick. And the same will go for the X2. And once you've become used to a 3.7" screen there's no going back.
  • I'll wait for the HTC Pro 3/Leo even though it might be awhile. I'm not too happy as I think SE half-assed it with the X2 and are devoting more resources into the X3. I don't hate Android but I honestly think that if MS plays it right they'll work their way to the top from WM6.5.1 to WM7 and beyond which is why I'm interested in a Windows phone as my next device. As one of the few SE fans out there, I am mighty interested in the X3 but I still prefer the Leo over the X3 for the above reason. So hurry on up HTC >.
  • WM 6.52 or what ever it is called, the new one is really really good i'd say - just the custom roms always have problems but it really is awesome
