Daniel takes a look at the beautiful and solid-built Sony Ericsson Xperia X1, Sony Ericcson’s first non-UIQ smartphone, and given the developement lately, certainly not the last. But is the phone all about design? Well, yes and no.
In summary, there are 3 aspects of the phone that Sony Ericsson appears to have focused on: The design, which is very beautiful, but does have its flaws, The Xpanel, which after the review, appears to not be what they claimed to be, and the built-in panels are just helping to make that more obvious, but surely better than a standard windows mobile UI. Lastly is the power of the phone, which is no doubt quite powerful.
