Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - The Android Landscape

Launch SRP: S$1088

Design

The Human Touch

We covered much of the design aspect of the X10 in our earlier preview. But for convenience, here's a quick recap of the X10's human curvature design. A straight-on flat surface with curves running along its sides and rear portrays a fine balance of sophistication and build quality on the X10. Its human curvature design does fit into the palm nicely, if you have a sizeable hand to grasp the X10 and its 4-inch capacitive screen. Also, its physical buttons were adequately raised for easy access.

  Menu, Home and Back button, the staple hardware buttons you'll need on an Android device.

Looking thin, the right profile includes the Volume and Camera buttons.

A 3.5mm audio jack, nestled in between the power button and the microUSB port.

The usual fingerprint problem is prominent on the front face of the X10. Thank goodness that the back of the device isn't made to be glossy, and is easy to grip.

Removing the battery casing will require a bit more effort than usual.

And behind, a 1500mAh battery, with slots for your microSD and SIM card.
