Re: XPERIA X8 Issues

Hi All of you disappointed users of SE X8,

same issues happened to me recently, I just own the phone since less than a week :-((

1. It gets black screen for no reason about a couple times per day, it is necessary to remove the battery to bring it back to life.

2. Camera is terrible at dark light and for closly / macro pictures.

3. I'm ussing it as a phone mostly, but it is everything else than a phone :-((

4. When I switch Wifi on and starting browsing into the internet, it can't last more that 4-5 hours.

5. For no reason sometimes it tells me that the memory card is broken, and nothing can be done except formating againg, I'm losing pictures  twice up to. now. The memory card is Class 6 / 8Gb it works just fine in other device.

I hope SE released 2.1 soon, and all this is repared, because I'have tried to repaire it with 1.6 reflashing it, but it did not help at all!?!?

Re: XPERIA X8 Issues

Some of these issues you are facing I haven't experienced myself but maybe you should see if that still happens after the update. The Android 2.1 update details have been posted here http://blogs.sonyericsson.com/products/2010/11/27/update-roll-out-started-also-for-xperia-x8/ and you can check to see if your SI-Number is there for the upgrade.

Re: XPERIA X8 Issues

1. Yes, I am experiencing this black screen issue every now and then. Wondering if I should bring it to the service centre, but will they be able to do anything?

2. Not really a bug this one, the camera specs are that way. Slightly frowning Face

3. Works as a phone for me, so ok I guess.

4. Battery drains fast if you use wifi or 3G. Slightly frowning Face

5. Haven't heard of this problem. Perhaps a conflict for this particular SDcard as it happens sometimes?

Re: XPERIA X8 Issues

First of all you should check with your carrier to ensure that you have caller identity allowed on your contract.  The other thing that may be a problem is the set up of the numbers on the phone, which is locally unique.  I have read where people have +12345678900 and then other numbers stored as 012345678900 and the phone doesn't recognise the number as being the same or even 01234-567-8900 and the carrier sends the number as a different string.  I don't have a solution for it tho I'm afraid.
