    I will buy an Xperia X8, in these days, instead of my HTC Magic.
    I will sell my Magic because it has to low internal memory (RAM). Effectually, I can't use it for multitasking... (Only one or two apps can run at a time...) The bigger apps, like Angry Birds can't run at all...

    I compared the HTC Magic to the X8, and I surprised, when I saw that the X8 has less RAM, than the Magic!

    Hey, X8 users, do you think, the X8's RAM isn't enough? Can you use multitasking? How many apps can run at a time?

    Thanks for the answers!

    Can you listen to music, chatting with somebody, watching a youtube video, and browsing on the net, and playing some 3D games at a time? :p

    How can you listen music while watching a video?
    How can you chat while playing games? Lol

    I haven't got any RAM problems as of yet but still if you can get any other phone it would be better

    Am not saying x8 is bad but now many good phones are available at the same rate

    Yes, yes I can. I can listen to one MP3, one WAV, chat with 3 persons (including Suhel), watch a 6 minutes youtube video from the youtube app, browse 3 tabs (but can only read from 2 at a time) and play crysis. But I have to admint I use both hands and get killed really really often in the damn game. But maybe because of low framerate (15-20 fps) and that I have no freakin' mouse (damn SE!). I noticed that if I stop chatting with Suhel and close one browser tab, I get better fps.

    Thanks suhel! Maybe I will buy a Motorola Defy...

    Hey, coman_nick, do you play Crysis 1 or to 2 on X8? :p :D :p
    I know that it was funny, but you can understand what I'm saying...

    can anyone share your copy of Crysis? thanks

    x8 have enough Ram to multitask of your daily need

    I don't think crysis is ported to Android. It was a joke.
    And yes, it's impossible to run out of RAM. To understand why, have a look at one of the 1h vids posted on Android.com explaining how Android works.
    Also never seen or heard about an app that can't run due to lack of RAM. Maybe I'm not well informed? :)

    why dont you buy a Samsung Galaxy 5 or Galaxy Y, i have a Samsung Galaxy 5 and it has 184 mb of ram, i cant play games good, chat, listen music, etc, i have overclocked it to 710 mhz and it works so good, i have made an internal swap partition, so i have more ram (32MB), and you can upgrade it to cyanogen mod 7 and 9 with ICS, the Android 4.0 is still is development for this one, but it is getting good, but if you have the money to buy a xperia x8, buy a Galaxy y, it has a processor of 830 mhz and ram 290, it is a good phone if i can do all yhat with my Galaxy 5 so with a Galaxy Y you cuold do more.
