Diamond keyboards(for your finger and completely ditch stylus) :
Judging from the long list above, it looks like there are still lots of thing Sony Ericsson can do to perfect the overall experience and make a customer happier. (software wise)
For Hardware wise there is only one complaint and it’s a serious one for the QWERTY keyboard :
I SERIOUSLY THINK THAT THE MATERIAL USE TO SUPPORT THE PHYSHYCAL KEYPAD WASN’T UP TO THE STANDARD AND IT’S OBVIOUSLY A DESIGN FLAW.
I sent back my X1 twice within one year to repair the QWERTY key pad. Generally, some of the keypad will start to show symptom within 3 months and others will follow.
Common symptoms are :
1. Once you pressed the button, but the character did not appear on screen .
2. You pressed the button once, but it appear 2 or 3 character on screen .
3. The soft-keypad will start to wear out from commonly used characters , for example space bar, dot(. ), and question mark(?), and other characters will also slowly develop the symptom described in point two and three.
4. The soft-keypad will start to wear out after few months of under normal usage. (i swear I’m not an avid SMSer..)
Guess what , if your device is out of warranty , it will cost you SGD80 to replace the support material without adding in the labour charge yet.
