O2 XPhone Mobile Review

If you're looking for a smart phone, be prepared to sift through some fairly hefty handsets. The O2 Xphone is a supports tri-band GSM/GPRS and it is quite large for a mobile phone, measuring 120.4mm x 50.1mm x 24.4mm. It's a little on the heavy side too, as can expected with a phone this size, weighing 130g.
The camera on the Xphone takes still pictures in three resolutions from 160 x 120 pixels up to 640 x 480 pixels.
The transflective, thin-film transistor (TFT) screen is exceptionally responsive and looks remarkable displaying 16-bit (65,536) colours.Pictures appear crisp and there is little to no degradation in readability of the screen under strong light.
This is certainly an interesting release from O2 — we've only seen the Xda (a pda/phone hybrid) from them so far.

I bought this phone in early 2005, been using it mainly for receiving sms as it can store thousands of sms. no high-tec things tried, the music is good, though.
A suggestion on the battery problem i found that the phone battery reacts to different types of memory card installed. i've compared 128mb kingston rs-mmc, no-card installed, and 128 apacer sd-card. the sd-card drains quickest, while of course the no-card config lasts longest. had a 256mb sd-card once (now it's missing) but don't remember the effect.
