Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 Specification

The XPERIA X8 (Released 2010, September) Previously rumored as Sony Ericsson Shakira, looks similar to the XPERIA X10 but has a smaller 3-inch, HVGA capacitive touch screen and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

The handset still runs Sony Ericsson user experience platform(UXP) along with the times cape features.This quad-band GSM phone supports Wi-Fi,Bluetooth,and GPS.

I am using x8 and it has a decent video clarity and sound is below average. The word "BASS" doesn't exist in this phone. Its battery back for a texting machine is max 1 day. And the very fact that it runs on Android increases the phone's merit.

It is slightly priced high for its specifications, but the phone is hot to look at and is easy to handle. If u want to compromise with the sound clarity and you need a decent android phone with good looks and excellent touch interface, i would suggest to to go for this set.

Most missed feature - Video-calling. It’s video calling in the lead with 22.9%. People who have the feature enabled apparently have no interest in using it, while those who don’t have video-calls are pretty eager to try them. That’s why we feel that despite the high demand this feature might not substantially gain in popularity in the future– it has been tried and rejected once already.

Taking about its Battery, the battery backup is good , but not as long life as Nokia. My battery comes to 65 percent at the end of the day with general usage when i charge it completely in the morning. But its worth buying though the android usage is a bit difficult to understand, we can enjoy Its worth a lot for beginners,  it has few excellent features that you never thought would be for example, 3D Gallery, Pinch Zoom, Move Apps to SD etc., 
If you have any problem in receiving new messages. Please make sure that you have more than 20 MB Free remaining on your phone memory, or else you won't be receiving any message. I prefer that you delete some unused apps in your x8.
Good that they put a HVGA screen coz anything less than that would be a big let down. HVGA is good enough for this small screen, and the mobile would be perfect to those who don't want to carry a huge 4¨ X10 or desire! Its disappointing it doesn't have any kind of flash. Not even at least LED.

About the internal storage I am NOT surprised, because this is a mid-end smart phone, and I think that such a phone doesn't need big internal memory. For example, A phone with 8GB internal memory, will be more expensive, than a phone with 128 MB.
