Sony Ericsson has had a bit of a topsy turvy time with its Android phones over the years. Its first few attempts, including the Xperia X1 and Xperia X10 , didn't quite get the balance right but the X10 mini and X10 mini pro both impressed us and were intr...

When it was first launched, the Xperia X8 received criticism for its out-of-date version of Android. Since then it has received a major software update to version 2.1 of the operating system, up from 1.6. It still retains Sony Ericsson's own custom use...

Tweet The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 takes the UI we saw on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and flips it over to a device with a 3-inch screen. It shares the same design as the Xperia X10, so falls neatly between the X10 and X10 mini – we’re surprised...

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 is a mid-range Google Android smartphone targeted at users who can't afford the premium Xperia X10 and find the Xperia X10 mini or mini Pro too small for their tastes. After a long wait and much anticipation, the Sony Eric...
Bottom line The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 has a good design and a decent set of features; it's also one of the best looking mid-range Android phones. However, the rather sluggish performance, slightly small screen size (3in) and outdated OS (Android 1.6) put the ph...
Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X8 sits between the high-end XPERIA X10 and the entry-level XPERIA X10 Mini and XPERIA X10 Mini Pro smartphones. It's a mid-range Android smartphone with a relatively compact design. The XPERIA X8 has a better screen resolution...

Bad Slightly cramped for messaging, Timescape is limited, runs Android 1.6, no multitouch...

If you want an Android phone and you're on a budget, it's worth taking a look at the Sony Experia X8. But if you can afford a few extra pounds each month, shop around and you'll get a smartphone with more features. Once the X8 has its Android 2.1 up...

The spiritual successor to Sony Ericsson’s pint-sized X10 Mini is the Xperia X8, an Android-powered touchscreen phone of similar dimensions. But do good things really come in small packages? Read on to find out.What we likeThe Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 i...

When Sony Ericsson launched its Xperia X8 the handset ran on Android 1.6. At the time Android 2.2 was around, so it immediately felt a little out of date. The handset has recently received a refresh and our review sample was sent back for a reflash. But t...

We've got exactly what we wished for. After being rather impressed by Sony Ericsson's ultra-small Xperia X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro, we couldn't help but wonder what Sony Ericsson's heavily customised Android OS would look like on a phone with a middle-...

Bottom line We've got exactly what we wished for. After being rather impressed by Sony Ericsson's ultra-small Xperia X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro, we couldn't help but wonder what Sony Ericsson's heavily customised Android OS would look like on a phone with a middle-...
This is one area where the Xperia X8 really excels. With 3G+, WiFi and Bluetooth, it doers a good job of staying connected. Voice calls don't suffer from any distortion or interference and the sound is clear and loud enough even when you're making call...
Good Small form factor, Interchangeable covers, Good contrast and accurate colours onscreen, Interface is easy to get the hang of, Good battery life...
Bad Tricky touchscreen, Not much room for customisation, Lots of lag, Disappointing online experience...
Bottom line The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 is a small mobile that does better at the 'phone' part of being a smartphone than the 'smart' part. We much prefer the X10 and X10 mini pro, which has a slide-out keyboard. Such an unresponsive screen is a pain to use...
Android phones are becoming the next best accessory and many of the handset manufacturers are scrabbling to get their own device launched onto the market.Sony Ericsson has already had relative successes with its Xperia X10 and the smaller package of t...
Good Capacitive screen, Impressive battery life...
Bad Looks cheap, Laggy Android 1.6 OS, Misty screen resolution...
Bottom line This bulky, boxy handset is neither pleasing to the eye or to the touch. Little flourishes of greatness, with the capacitive screen and battery life, just cannot make up for the overall slow operating system...
The Xperia X8 was unboxed a good few months ago, but now here is the review with one small but important difference. It's now running the 2.1 Éclair update which may not be the latest but it's still better than 1.6 was. That has now brought it up to sc...
Bottom line On the face of it, the Sony Ericsson X8 doesn't seem like a great phone. It has outdated specs and a few issues like the screen sensitivity that, if you're a speed freak, will leave you tearing your hair out. However, price is a factor that must be tak...
Sony Ericsson's Xperia X8 has had something of a troubled childhood. When it first appeared, the handset ran Android 1.6 - and, frankly, it wasn't up to much. But when it got an update to Android 2.1, we decided to take a look. With Android 2.2 curren...
Bottom line All things considered, we can't really recommend the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8. There are a lot of Android handsets hovering around this pricepoint, so explore further before taking the plunge...
Bottom line The Xperia X8, given to us by Carphone Warehouse, sits between the X10 and X10 mini in terms of size. It offers a 3-inch, 16-million colours TFT display, which is quite vibrant. It’s pretty light, though a little thicker than most smartphones. I tested...
Sony Ericsson (SE) smartphones became cool again after adopting Android as its smartphone OS of choice, resulting in the Xperia X10, as well as the Xperia mini and mini pro. The latest device emanating from SE’s stable is the Xperia X8, which is a budg...
Although this compact smartphone first came out in the days of Android 1.6, Sony Ericsson provides an update to 2.1 via its website. The aging technology means that it doesn’t make the absolute most of the operating system – it’s the only touchscree...
Bottom line There’s a real compromise to be had with this smartphone, but if you’re looking for a great-value way to get your hands on an Android phone, it’s an extremely attractive proposition. Although it’s older than the operating system, the phone handles And...
