Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 review

 

A follow-up to the highly anticipated XPERIA X1, Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X2 smartphone has been met with much less fanfare. That is a good thing, since the XPERIA X2 suffers from just as many frustrating software issues as its bug-riddled predecessor.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 promises an intuitive user experience but delivers very little. The XPERIA panels have merit but suffer from lag, while in general the phone is frustrating to use thanks to slow performance, a resistive touch screen and the...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 review: First look

 

We got a brief hands-on with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2, which runs Microsoft Windows 6.5. Take a look at this first look review to see what we think of the handset.

Our time with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 was short but sweet. The move from Windows Mobile 6.1 to 6.5 and other polishes means we’re looking forward to more in-depth testing to see if the handset lives up to our expectations for business users in the...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 smartphone

 

The XPERIA X2 suffers from just as many frustrating software issues as its bug-riddled predecessor

Arc slider, excellent keyboard, XPERIA panels have some merit, great camera

Slow performance, plastic and cheap-looking front, fingerprint magnet, resistive touch screen, largely uses the standard Windows UI, requires excessive use of stylus

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 review: Another one in

 

It was back in February 2008 that the XPERIA lineup was born and it took Sony Ericsson almost two years to bring about the XPERIA X1 successor. The long waiting is over now and the XPERIA X2 is keen to prove to us all it was...

Both devices obviously have lots of features in common (it's the same amount of memory - both RAM and ROM, and the same CPU) but there are - possibly - enough improvements to make the XPERIA X2 a strong successor and a valuable upgrade. And by telling...
