    Hi guys,

    I just purchased the x10i 2 days ago and I stumbled upon these forums and decided to post to get some advice. First off, before I got the x10i I was and still am an iPhone 4 user. If possible I would like know the benefits of rooting my x10i and other cool stuff I could do with this phone.

    I would also like to point out some things I noticed between the iphone4 and the x10 based on the 2 days I have been fiddling with it.

    If anyone could point me at the right direction on how to maximize my experience that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again.

    Good things I noticed
    -very nice media player
    -I realized how much I missed the SD card (no more syncing yay!)
    -Bigger screen (it suprises me how much of a difference half an inch can make lol)
    -pull down task bar is a really goooooood idea lol
    -internet on x10i while on my wifi seems faster than iphone 4 especially on youtube and sites where i can watch videos with skyfire

    Bad things I noticed
    -I cannot type anywhere as fast as I can on iphone4 because I always hit the wrong button
    -Noticed some lag especially with a video wallper installed
    -the touch seems non responsive at times although I did put the screen protector that came with the phone on (eg. pulling down the status bar needs to press hard)
    -NO multi touch (pinch zoom) = browsing is a pain compared to ip4


    Thats all I can think of now hehe but yeah any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    If you have a look on page 3 on the main X10 board you will find the original post.

    I can't speak highly enough of this keyboard, it is so smooth, customisable to what you want, good prediction and easy to edit dictionary etc. If I was only allowed one app on my phone it would be this one.

    Give it a go, the instructions look complicated but they aren't really, just follow a step at a time and bobs your uncle. It will only take about 10 mins tops. But might have to wait til you get home so work not blocking stuff!
