Sony Ericsson Mini Xperia X8 With X10 Phone Android

The spiritual successor to the Sony Ericsson Mini quart X10 size is the with white Xperia  X8, a touchscreen phone running Android of similar dimensions. But do good things really come in small packages? Read on to find out.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 is about the same size as the Mini X10, if a bit larger at the edges. It is light, pocket friendly, and despite its size, it is not so small that the size of the screen (3 inches) suffers.

Again, like the Sony Ericsson Mini X10, you can customize the presentation of the Sony Xperia X8 adding shortcuts to the four corners of the screen, giving you quick access to the phone book, messages, camera, Facebook, or what you want. On top of that, you can assign a single widget (like Google Search) for each screen, of which there are three. You can add more if desired (we had 12 runs on our own), but obviously things you have to run things get slower.

Due to web browsing, but with 3G and Wi-Fi chilly, can feel a little awkward. Having to use the zoom controls on the screen that does not always respond as you would have them and repeatedly clicking on the links can be annoying. The same applies when you scroll Facebook News Feeds, too.

The simple 3.2 megapixel camera is not terrible, but the trigger on the steep side combined with the control does not respond to the screen means you get to take some blurry pictures. There's no flash either, which means no pictures at night or taking photos in dimly lit places.

You do not have much in the way of camera settings, only some very basic lighting options. Of course you can always download applications such as Android and fxcamera RetroCamera but it's nice to have some fun effects built in too. Again, like the Mini X10 X8 Xperia runs on Android 1.6. This is all well and good for a phone midrange budget that Android 2.3 is supposed to be with us in a few weeks makes X8 feel a little old hat.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 Android phone is blocked, like the X10 Mini is a cute little pocket friendly phone. Ideal if you have not used an Android phone before and it comes with some useful applications pre-installed and it has a fairly simple layout. The resistive touch screen can make things difficult, however, and if you are after a more powerful Android phone that offers a greater degree of customization, we suggest you check the normal size Xperia X10.
