Well, not very impressed. Picked up the X10 from The Carphone Warehouse yesterday, but only had a chance to play with it today. Negatives - - - - - - 1) Text entry is very slow. It clearly registers the key stroke, but it takes a while for the letter to appear on the screen. 2) Keyboard doesn't allow a "long press" to enter numbers and other characters. That is a pain. 3) Definitely missing the pinch to zoom. 4) When writing this thread, I repositioned the cursor to the middle of the test and it took me an age to get the cursor back down to the bottom; just wouldn't let me do it. Something that was so simple on the Hero....... 5) Ringer is not very loud even on maximum. 6) Camera light is completely manual and can only be toggled through the menu; not ideal if trying to take a picture quickly in low light. Why they didn't have an auto 'flash' option is beyond me! Positives - - - - - 1) Large screen is a noticeable improvement over the Hero's smaller one. 2) Camera seems good, other than not having a flash (it's a 'light'). 3) Stylish looking unit; in my opinion, the best looking phone out there right now, which was my main reason for buying it! Overall, it's just not as easy to navigate as the HTC Hero. I know I was used to the Hero, but there are things that I feel I just won't get comfortable with on the X10. I really want to like this phone, but fear that the stylish looks, good camera and Timescape / Mediascape are just not enough to compete with HTC's latest, based on my experience with the Hero and specification of the Desire. I would definitely hold out for the Desire if anybody is torn between these two! Luckily I have another phone on contract with O2 which is due an upgrade, so once they release the Desire, it's gonna replace this X10!
