    my firmware is R1FA014. what are the real benefits to upgrade to the latest firmware? SE site does not mention the firmware version nor they talk about the new features...

    will someone tell me some of the pros and cons upgrading to the current firmware.

    thank you very much

    hmmm there were a few posts that had mentioned quite alot of things but il say what i remember off the top of my head

    smoother and faster interface
    better battery
    mediascape & timescape interface more responsive aswel as smooth
    timescape themes.. i think theres around 5 to choose from
    more accurate on touch response
    volumes little louder and clearer

    geez theres much more but i gues im useless at this lolz.. thinkin right now that ive probably forgotten even some of the basic stuff :p

    also from your firmware its easier to root ya phone.. that has its own bonus such as backing up more data than without root, uninstalling quite alot of SE garbage, takin screenshots of ya phone without the need of pc and wires, and more!!

    dont think there are any cons!! lol

    hope it helpz!!

    Just upgrade it. It's an improvement in many ways.

    thank you both for your inputs. i gather the upgrade has to be done on a pc since you have to do it using pc connection, correct? can this be done on a mac at all?

    No, the upgrade can be done over the phone, you will need over 50% battery life though, simply go: Settings -> About Phone -> Software Update :)

    Straight from SE's mouth

    "
    Dear John,
    Thank you for contacting the Sony Ericsson support centre.
    Unfortunately we can advise that the Update Service would not have increased the in-call volume on your Xperia X10 handset."

    that is too bad because the low volume is such a drawback for most people. i wish the x10 has stereo speakers like the nokia n95 which is nice and loud. sony can easily place speakers on either side of the phone.
