  1. Well this new Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 has the advanced features like an interactive panel interface which is customizable.Its full QWERTY keyboard looks awesome.Its performance is also good and the most impressive feature is its sound system.

I like the usability and the features on it, but I've been having trouble getting the battery to hold a charge, and it is slowly but progressively getting slower and slower.
