A bit of a ''How long is a piece of string ?'' question. Depends what you want from a phone.

They are Android 2.1, Sony Ericsson did an update weeks ago. They are not slow.

If you are looking for occasional smartphone features but are not prepared to carry round one of these massive slabs like Dom Joly on Trigger Happy TV "I'm on the Train" then this is worth a look.

It's very pocketable and neat and doesn't look like a stupid big nurdy geeky toy. Definitely has its place.

I hope the update has improved the battery life, as I could never get mine to last past late afternoon.

An excellent small pocketable android handset with a keyboard. I'd highly recommend it for anyone who needs a simple smartphone and is not fussed about having the latest superpowerful one. One tip: install ADP Launcher Pro or similar to skin it and make it a bit more user friendly.

Very good price!

Was looking at this model a couple of weeks ago but in the end went with an unlocked San Francisco. Found it to be an excellent purchase.

good deal for people on O2.
not for me, 30£ to unlock.

good deal for people on O2.

there are a couple of ways to get this phone unlocked.

1. direct unlock is the best sure way to get it done.
not many people can genuinly offer this as direct unlock has not yet been added to main stream unlocking tools like SE tool or Cruiser, so you wont find this in your average mobile repair/unlock shop. The unlock is done via a private server that only a select few distributers of unlocking equipment have access to. This unlock takes around 30 seconds but you would need to take it to a dealer. we have access to this private server and can do it while you wait if you are in sheffield, or mail it into us to be done and we will mail it back the same day (google us)
the server supports direct unlock on the following models:
Unlock Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
Unlock Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini
Unlock Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro
Unlock Sony Ericsson Xperia X8
Unlock Sony Ericsson E15
Unlock Sony Ericsson M1 Aspen
Unlock Sony Ericsson W100 Spiro

2. unlock by code, you can get a Worldwide sony ericsson Unlock Code from imeicodes.co.uk this however takes about a week to get your code, so you need to be patient. The code will work fine aslong as you havent used up your tries to enter it (just like a nokia phone). It's a good idea to check your unlock code attempts before ordering a code by doing the following:
Press menu < < menu < menu menu <
Then you can check the counter [0 or 5].
If it says 0 then you cannot enter codes.

Hope this helps.

better than SF?

Slightly different, in that you have a smaller screen, but you have a keyboard. If you're looking to consume information, videos, web pages, go for SF. If you want to write emails, on web pages, listen to music, then go for this. Also if you're looking for something more pocketable.

Good apps to save on battery life are Advanced Task Killer and Juice Defender. Now my X10 Mini lasts nearly twice as long between charges.

Which phone do you think is best to get this 1 or the Samsung Galaxy Apollo?

Battery life is not great overall, but by Android standards it's actually quite good in my experience.

You won't need to pay that.
#17
Anyone can confirm if phone is locked? Most of the time phones are unlocked from internet shops...
#18
Even if it's locked on O2 you can still use a GiffGaff sim card ;)
#19
cool thsi will do for the mrs, a sony lover but no too keen on the old touch screens
#20
might get rid of my san fran for this...

looks nice and the spec sounds just as good, plus 2.1 out the box is a win

Is there a free way of unlocking it?

Bought this phone at christmas because it looked the business and had some really good reviews.
How wrong I was - Personally I HATE it. I recently updated it think android system is 2.2 or something now.
The phone is really slow, I have never had a phone where calling someone was so difficult especially trying to hang up, it has a very slow response time which then after a number of presses crashes the whole phone.
After the 10 years to switch on you basically have another 10 years to wait before you can actually do anything.
Somehow it syncs my Facebook contacts with my phone contacts which then deleted my original phone contacts. WHY? and when i search for a contact it brings up all of Facebook contacts even though it urned it off.
As much as it looks good do not buy this phone if you are inpatient becuase like me you will probably end up throwing it at a wall. Im having a HTC next, well when I have that stupid amount of money i am

I have this phone. I have different experience with it.
It has Android 2.1 not 2.2. It's not slow, calling is very easy and the phone has never crashed. Start up time is typical for Android phones and no problems with contacts. Battery life is about 1.5 days.

+1 - Tempted to purchase due it coming with a physical keyboard, as I've struggled using the onscreen keyboards in the past.
#26
if anyones on vodafone i just phoned c/s and got one for £100 inc free delivery .
im currently on sim only deal and told them my mobile not working and was looking for x10 pro on payg + no top up was required
#27
I also hate software keyboards, but decent android phones with hardware keyboards are few and far between, especially at this price point

tempted
#28
This is also for sale for £99 at Orange (online) and for the next 13 or so hours you can get £15.60 off PAYG phones that cost between £60 and £150.
#29
placebo graeme, cant find phone on website do you have link
#30
It's not on the orange website.
I checked earlier too, the phone orange have on their website is the X10 Mini and NOT the PRO.
