The Sony-Ericsson Xperia X1 has been creating hype in the industry for quite some time now. Being Sony-Ericsson’s first Windows Mobile phone, the X1 needs a little more than luck to compete in this ultra competitive market.
This review unit is solid black in color and Sony-Ericsson offers a silver version as well. Unlike mobile devices these days, the X1 is heavy, weighing at 158 grams. This is mainly because of its steel construction, which is evident as even the battery cover is made out of metal. The hefty weight didn’t put me down. In fact, I prefer that it weighs this much because it gives me a better grip as well as feeling that it is sturdily built.
