Sony Ericsson Xperia X8

 

Small and affordable, this Android-packing smartphone has plenty going for it.

Relatively Small, Full Android Smartphone, Low Cost, Decent Headset Included

Cramped Screen, Poor Typing Experience, Mediocre Battery Life

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 review

 

A mid-range Android effort, that doesn't quite catch rivals

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 review

 

The Sony Ericsson X8 Xperia is aimed at the Android smartphone neophyte. But it is up to scratch compared to its mid-range rivals?

Even with the OS update it’s difficult to recommend this workaday smartphone ahead of more accomplished mid-rangers.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8

 

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 takes the UI we saw on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and flips it over to a device with a 3-inch screen. It shares the same design as the Xperia X10 , so falls neatly between the X10 and X10 mini - we're surprised Sony...

Capacitive display, response from screen is pretty good

Build quality not great, poor camera performance, out dated version of Android, Sony Ericsson's tinkerings add little to get excited about, software seemed occasionally buggy

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 never really steps away from the problems that have hampered other Sony Ericsson Android devices this year. The out-dated version of the Android operating system means you miss out on the performance gains and the features...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 review

 

Sony Ericsson moves on the Android mid-ground with its 3' compromise phone

Very clever custom user interface ; Speedy web browser ; Superb battery life ; Fast and dependable in use

No multi-touch support ; Limited on-board memory ; Poor touchscreen sensitivity ; Ageing Android 1.6 at its core

We've got exactly what we wished for. After being rather impressed by Sony Ericsson's ultra-small Xperia X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro, we couldn't help but wonder what Sony Ericsson's heavily customised Android OS would look like on a phone with a...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 review

 

Sony Ericsson scored a big hit with last year's X10 Mini handset, proving that you can pack power and navigability into a compact form factor without sacrificing usability.

Given the £20-per-month price tag, it’s hard to criticise the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8. We simply found better Android handsets for the price.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 review

 

The X8 has some clever features, but it can't match Motorola's Defy on contract. It's a good choice on prepay, though.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 Review

 

The spiritual successor to Sony Ericsson's pint-sized X10 Mini is the Xperia X8, an Android-powered touchscreen phone of similar dimensions. But do good things really come in small packages? Read on…

The processor seemed to struggle at times, making us wait while it performed actions and sometimes performing its screen animations jerkily rather detracting from all the design effort Sony Ericsson has put in to its Android skin.
