Just preordered this from Argos. It is the same price at O2 stores and at Tesco too though Argos give a £20 voucher with purchases over £100.

O2 stores and Tesco had all sold out round here so they must be popular.

It also comes with a spare blue and white back cover.

is this better than an htc wildfire? does it have one of those nice multi-touch screens like the wildfire and htc desire do?
#23
It's like this: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/orange-san-francisco-android-2-1-wv/763425
never happened!

Sony X8 £130 (+ top up)
3.0” capacitive touchscreen with resolution 320 x 480

Orange San Francisco £99 (+ top up)
3.5” capacitive touchscreen with resolution 480 x 800
#24
Its a low end android, spend the extra £50 and get x10 mini pro on 02, but saying that, that was my preference for my daughter for christmas, it is a decent price so heat added

#26
San fran is a much better phone for £50 less.
#27
Agreed, I've just picked up a San Francisco and it's a fantastic phone, and much better specced than this.
#28
Decent price for this phone, but not a great deal IMHO - O2 are selling it for £130 now so Argos had to drop their price (same price in Tesco, Very etc.)
#29
i had this phone but had to sell it off within 4 days of purchase...then went in for HTC Wildfire and I'm happy to have changed to HTC...no offenses against someone who is already usign X8 and happy abt it...it just did not work for me..
#30
Would this work with tesco mobile? I have a payg sim.

2 x £10 argos vouchers included with this deal makes it better than O2 and Tesco.

The retailer may give you a clue as to the cold voting.

my mates got this fone,great,lots of features,well worth it!!

no 3g?

I had bought 2 phones (yes 2!!) 3 weeks back from Tesco at the same price (£130) when this deal was posted here. One I sold it to money4mymobile.com for £165 and the other one kept for myself.

Here is my review

Pros:
1) Very good responsive touch sensitive screen as compared to my old phone Nokia 5530 XpressMusic.
2) Its a 3G phone so browsing is bit faster than 2G phones.
3) Can't think of any more ....

Cons:
1) Battery lasts for just 1 day.
2) It lacks some of the basic features of any mobile phones. For e.g.
* You can't delete ALL the contacts in one go. You have to delete one by one.
* You can't delete any number selectively from your Call Log list. Either you keep all the log or clear ALL the list.
* There is no such thing as PROFILES such as General, Office, Meeting, Outdoor etc. You have to go to the SETTINGS everytime to change the Ringtone volume, Silence mode, Vibration etc.
* Yahoo Mail is not supported in this version of Android 1.6. It is supported in the higher version 2.1

Overall I am not happy with this phone as the Cons outweighs the Pros. I will use this phone for another couple of months and then sell it off.

I've had a SF...the operative word being 'had'

But I dunno if this would be better...
