i was in MK on Nov 5th and the salesperson tried to get me to trade in my htc tytn 2 at 1,800 for the sony x1. i was so tempted. the phone is available at fortress but she kept telling me that stock was limited. she wanted me to put a deposit down.
i decided to do some research on the phone before committing. it feels solid. the pictures looked ok. the screen was great. it’s not as wide as my tytn 2 and it is a fraction thinner. it looks good.
the thing i’m attracted to is the battery life. my tytn 2 (after a year) drains the battery when i use email and surf the net. i surf a lot on my phone. the battery level goes down pretty fast.
my understanding that the sony x1 has a more long-lasting battery. a phone can have the best applications but if the battery doesn’t last long enough, then what’s the point?
