    So how does the X10 measure up? I know the Iphone 4 has killer resolution. and its 4g. but where would the x10 stand in the rankings against all smart phones? i seen afew top 10s and i dont see it on there. is it a top 15 phone??

    also what makes the Iphone 'better'?? mostly marketing?

    Since when was the iPhone 4g ??

    or is that just in the states ??

    I think the X10 should be in top 15/20 simply because of its screen, ease of use and design - forget the OS fragmentation and its an ace handset - rather have it than iPhone

    they call iphone 4g ,, cause its 4 generation phone,, just corporate marketing. the x10 could have easily been a top5 phone,, but it wont be,,Sony just seems to have that ability to do that to good hardware,,
    i would put it in the top 20,, but not the top 10..imho

    Apple clearly stated they would not call it the 4G to avoid confusion between itself the iPhone 4 and the 4G networks cropping up all round the world - as such their corporate marketing has NEVER referred to it as the iPhone 4G

    Hence the name advertised everywhere - iPhone 4

    When the Iphone 4 was released, alot of people were buying it thinking it was 4G. But the main reason for this was because alot of people were spreading rumours that it was 4G. Things like this happens with many phones, which then causes massive debates :rolleyes:

    Only Apple thing I have is my old Ipod Video

    Yeah I love how people go on about 3G or 4G

    Apple Fan - "It has 3G/4G!!!"
    Guy - "Do you even know what 3G/4G is?"
    Apple Fan - "No, but its awsome"

    LOL Ye that's what alot of people are like

    I must admit, I used to buy 3G phones when I was a young teen because they could do video calls, but I never made any video calls, I just bought them because they had the ability to make video calls :D

    LOL

    I'm a PC and Windows 36 is my Idea (so remember to tell your kids to tell their kids to tell there kids [and so on], that when it gets released, think of me) Next it'll be "I'm a PC and Windows 36 was CuBz's Idea" :D

    Anyway, enough of my crap "humour"...

    Those adverts really grind my gears, about 10 different tv ads all ending in "I'm a PC and Windows 7 was my idea" sends me nuts :eek: I wouldn't mind, but it wasn't their idea.

    Having owned a multitude of Android devices(Droid 1st gen, Droid Eris, Droid Incredible, Droid X, Sprint Hero, Evo, Xperia X10, Aria, Backflip, and now a Captivate) in the course of a years time

    My personal ranking would be in 5 areas:

    A)Sex Appeal
    1)Samsung Captivate
    2)Sony Xperia X10
    3)HTC ARIA
    4)HTC INCREDIBLE

    B)Social Networking integration
    1)Motorola Backflip
    2)Sony Xperia X 10
    3)Samsung Captivate
    4)Any HTC Device with Friendstream

    C)Performance
    1)Most Droids excluding the Eris
    2)HTC Aria(Surprisingly)
    3)Sony Xperia
    4)Samsung Captivate

    D)Signal Strength/Call quality
    1)All the Droids
    2)HTC Aria
    3)Sony Xperia x10
    4)Htc Evo

    E)Camera
    1)Sony Xperia

    none of the rest compare...Im sorry

    Hoenstly, if the Xperia
    had at least 2.0(i'd be content)
    and had an optimized mediascape/timescape
    and At & t had not restricted the sideloading of apps
    i'd still have one

    I'd easily put the Xperia in first place in terms of looks.

    If u take out super amoled, then yes the xperia wins in the looks department

    its just that bland screen that doesnt allow its full sexiness to shine thru!

    I like the x10 but its boring now and the lack of customizing it unless you use other apps is simply annoying, plus I want 2.1 update as angry birds only seems to work with 2.1 or higher grrrrrr

    Hi.

    How do you think owners of other brands customize their phones?, and if you know how to pull and edit apks you can do it yourself.

    So I would have to be a user in the know how to customize my phone, I want a simply phone where I can change the theme, not have to download a app and then themes for that and then customize the app just to give my gui a nice look.

    Speaking of the "i" marketing theme

    For my son's birthday i got him an iPod

    My daughter - she wanted an iPhone

    Myself - well i treated myself to the iPad

    For my wifes birthday i kept to the same brand awareness - i bought her an iRon

    she obviously didn't see the funny side as she burnt all my shirts

    If the user WANTED a dummyphone, he would have bought one!!! :eek::eek::eek: What a concept! :rolleyes:


    On a side note... that really is no way to treat a new user (or anyone user for that matter), please make sure that it doesn't happen again.

    Well they did state...

    ...and I thought the term "dummyphone" is what's used to described none smart phones. :rolleyes:

    Sorry for making suggestions! They took unbrage with first one, evident by the quoted response above, so suggested in a more direct way that perhaps a smartphone wasn't for them.

    And btw, I'm actually newer than they are. ;)
