    This should give you an idea
    Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 vs. LG Optimus One P500 - GSMArena.com

    Look-wise, felt LG was a bit more appealing than X8, coz X8 still has that 'old' sony look. So LG +1
    Internet - Its your choice. But LG has a bigger screen. Bigger the better ;). LG +2
    Flash- Optimus din have flash initially! Now the Xda'ians have developed apps for the same. LG +3
    Music player- tons of em in the android market. So wont matter.
    Music- Obviously Sony! So Sony +1
    Battery - Not sure about Xperia. But with a rooted Optimus P500, the battery life is just spectacular. So LG +4

    My Score - LG=4/ X8=1 (Lot more features to be compared, but GSM arena should take care of the rest :D)
    My Verdict... Go for an Optimus P500. Worth a purchase :)

    I would recommend this phone. Not a costly one. But if you do have a bigger budget, you sure could look out for options.

    Like the person above said. It's a great phone if you root and a custom ROM because with overclock everything is butter smooth. Stock-wise its a decent phone a little lag here and there nothing major. Between these two devices I recommend the Optimus, but if your budget can go higher definitely check out the higher end phones.

    LG optimus One outclasses the X8 in every way in my opinion. The only thing the X8 has that the O1 doesn't is the Sony brand name.

    Xperia x8 is better then lg optimus one,belive me.i was going to buy lg opt one but then i saw that x8 has better performance.If you want flash player(android 2.2+),root the x8
    (extremely easy),install busybox(busybox installer on the market-free,requires root),install cwm recovery(it will seem hard,but it is very easy),and install custom 2.3.7 rom,i preffer ginger elite for stock kernel.use stock kernel roms!!!!!!dont use roms for alfs,nA,...kernels,because phone will be stuck in a bootloop,but that can be fixed over se pc companion.on ginger elite for stock kernel you have flash player pre-installed.if you want my help doing this,add me on facebook-Jakov Gudec-profile picture-Cyanogenmod(android with circle arround him).but skyfire for android can play flash player videos without flash player.good luck for confused people. :D:D:D
