Sony has been a tier one and a huge smartphone brand in the market until dethroned by the latest buzz in the market, OnePlus. But, still, Sony is trying hard to get back into the market and produce some good quality smartphone with a price tag that will attract new customers towards them. The Xperia X10 back in its time was a big gun and was looked forward to many smartphone enthusiasts and was bought similarly. This smartphone was one of the first to have a great build and an impressive camera to it.

This smartphone sports a 4.0Inches 480P scratch-resistant display. The screen resolution of Xperia X10 is 854×480 pixels and also a pixel density of 245 pixels per inch. Comparatively, it is a fairly compact and good display with impressive viewing angles to it. The display is bright enough for outdoor usage and color reproduction is done really well. It runs on Android 1.6 Donut with the Timescape UI skin on top of it. Timescape UI is home-baked Android-based user-interface Sony designed for Xperia smartphones only.

As of this news, the Android version of this mobile can be upgraded to Android 2.3 which is the GingerBread operating system. The latest update also brings a brand new kernel, an unlocked bootloader and 16M colored display with it. This is pretty impressive for the brand and an excitement for the X10 users out there. The latest Android 2.3 GingerBread update will also run with the Timescape UI skin on top.

It also comes with features like fast touch to focus, image stabilization, geotagging, face detection, and smile detection to click pictures. This camera can record high-quality videos up to 480P at 30 frames per second. Lastly, the most important component which is the battery.
