The back is rounded and feels comfy in your hand, plus it sports a matt finish that is relatively good at what itÂ´s supposed to do, i.e. prevent the phone from accidentally slip out of your hand.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is a well made cell phone with great build quality. The plastics it's made from appears proper and robust. The chrome framing is an enjoyable counterpoint and lends color to the overall design. Those of you with keen interest in the exact impression they make will be happy to find out that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will indeed attract the attention of people around you...
Offers plenty of cool Android features
The X10 Mini Pro is heavy on the cute factor, and its slide-out QWERTY keyboard makes this phone much more usable than its tinier sibling, the X10 Mini. But it's still not the most practical phone for all users. It offers plenty of cool Android features, but the phone is just too small to really take advantage of all of them.
Despite its beefy processor, the X10 stuttered through a few menus.
The Xperia X10 impresses with a slick design and hefty specs, but its lack of multitouch and its adoption of an outdated version of the Android OS prevent it from challenging other high-end Android phones for best in show.

As youâ€™d expect from a phone with a 1GHz processor, the Xperia is a fast phone, even with pre-release firmware.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10a is undeniably a solid high end Android phone. It's great looking, well made and the specs are positively top notch. The camera handily beats the Nexus One and the Samsung Captivate. Our review unit had stronger cell reception than the Nexus One and similar reception as the Captivate. But the Samsung Captivate is the brighter shining star: it has a newer version of the Android OS, it's faster, it has that fantastic Super AMOLED display and it's thinner.
Camera, big screen is great for watching videos
Packed with the tech specs to make it look good on paper, unfortunately the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 doesn't measure against its lesser-specced rivals. Unless the X10 can plug some of these holes, we can't promise that the X10 will deliver an experience on par with the rest of the pack
Display A 4-inch capacitive display with a resolution of 480 x 854 and 64K color support brings good image quality and features.
The Xperia X10 is Sony Ericsson's best mobile phone to date, though not the best Android-based phone on the market.
If Internet communication (especially social networking) and multimedia capabilities are features you primarily look for in a mobile phone, you will be more than satisfied. However, if you want other functions like multi-touch, look elsewhere.
Overall, its speed, and notably its screen, will likely satisfy many users.
Many people will find the XPERIA X10 Mini Pro too small. However, we found it to be a quirky but compelling handset. Sony Ericsson deserves a lot of credit for an excellent UI and a great physical keyboard, not to mention the fact that this is a fully fledged Android smartphone that doesn't skimp on the features found on larger, more expensive devices.
Poor camera performance
To wrap things up, we liked the Sony Ericsson Xperia W8 Walkman for being a simple to use entry-level smartphone and for coming with a pair of nice earphones out of the box. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be much backing up its Walkman brand, let alone bring it back to life. The Xperia W8 is an easy way of joining the Android team, but the aging Android 2.1 Eclair version that it comes with will simply not give you the full potential of the platform.
