Great styling, this really is a good looking phone in black or white.
Screen quality is fantastic and only beaten by the newer super amoled screens and also that of the iphone 4.
Loads of Features too many to list but of course it's an android phone, So it does everything a smartphone should.
Sony announced the X10 is getting android 2.3 so it's going to by upgraded to the latest software [Android 2.2 is available for those that root there phone].
Good reception and call quality, also wifi, bluetooth, 3g and so on work as should too.
Battery life is not that great but no worse or better than similar speced phones such as the htc desire.
If im being picky access to the memory card is blocked by the battery, but then again i don't change memory cards often.
Overall the Sony Ericsson X10 is a great Android smart phone. I would say that if your getting a contract or can afford to pay a premium for a pay as you go phone or sim free etc, i would look into the newly realised [date of review 11/05/11] line up of duel core smart phones [such as the samsung galaxy s 2] or sony ericsson's new flagship model the xperia arc and of course there is the newer iphone 4. But these will all be at a premium for some time so i currently recommend the xperia x10.
