Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 :: Where Can Get Rid Of Tons Of Unuseful Preinstalled Apps?
Dec 2, 2010
I have bought a new Xperia X8 but when i tested it at the shop I couldn't find 2 features that should be bloody basic standard for nearly EVERY OS out there. These features are:
1. A standard File-Explorer (for fast cross access of Photos, Sound, Music etc.nearly every mobile phone since 2000 had this feature)
2. A App-Manager to uninstall these tons of preinstalled apps I personaly will never use (like Doodle-Jump, Crazy Penguins etc.)
I am a PC User for aprox. 20 Years now and these features are exteme important for me. However I never really was in a situation where an Operating System came without a file-explorer even Windows 3.11 in the good old days had this feature directly implemented.The Man who sold me the phone said, I should test it at home and when I'm not compfortable with it, I could bring it back but I hope someone here can show me these features.
Is there any way to remove preinstalled apps? I have several that came with the phone.e.g.the sims demo, uno trial, and so on. The thing is i can't remove them from the phone.Apps that i've installed myself are no problem at all to remove but these that came with the phone just won't be deleted.If i can't delete them can i just hide the icons somehow? thay just take up space in the phone.
Can anyone recommend a computer software suite for XPERIA x10 which is better than what comes with phone? I'm not impressed with the application SE PC Companion. I'm using now the PC suite for Android, but too much that is not being translated into English.
I want to know if it is possible to install applications in the X10 downloaded from the internet with a PC. I do not have internet connection from my mobile and I would like to install some applications on it, but the only way explained in the manual is using the market and I can not use it.
I know apps vary in size but I just wondered how many apps I can download onto the phones memory?What limits you, the memory size or the phones ability to run many at once?Sorry if this has been asked before, I did search first but couldn't find an answer for the X10. Apologies if I missed it.
I'm only getting 8 on the left, 6 in the center and 8 on the right. I've seen pics of more (up to 16 per screen), but when I drag apps on, they don't stay. Am i missing something/ Search and google found me nothing.
I'm also barely making it through the day with battery life. It's only my second charge, but i had wifi/bluetooth turned off, juice defender activated in most modes, app killer working with very few apps running and the battery can barely make 16 hours. I'd would think I should be able to get 2 days out of it if everything is turned off and the phone isn't in use.
I saw that the Nexus has 512 megs of ram which on plenty to run apps. I like the X10 overall better for the 8mpx camera, but it has only 256 for ram. Is this gonna be an issues for the x10? My friend who has a Magic said that there is a way to increase the ram by doing virtua memory on the SD card...You think it will work well on the X10 1gb internal storage? How well does the apps run on SD card?
I have a small doubt about the ads popping in the free apps. The question is does it try to access the 3G/2G when their are disabled while those free apps are running in the background? I hope by unchecking the background data would be prevent them just in case they do access 3g/2g when running in the background?
Hi all, I try to download some apps and i am not getting anywhere, when to market find the app i want and press install. it says starting download.. but the bar is not moving (blue bar at the top) and nothing happens, I waited 1 hour and still nothing, how long dones it take to download? i try cancel and press install a few time but it's the same every time. is the blue bar supposed to move?
All of a sudden apps stopped being able to be downloaded or updated from the market place. They just stay on the 'starting download...' status which is rather irritating. I've tried clearing cache and resetting the market and know i've a master reset as a last chance option but has anyone any ideas before I do this?
I'm kinda new to android, and not sure if this is a handset or os thing but, when you swipe up from the bottom of the x10 screen to display all your apps, is there a way to sort the apps into folders. i.e. move all games into a games folder, put all work apps into a work folder, etc. like i said not sure if this is an os thing or if i could download an app to do it, i have done a little searching online but didn't come up with any answers.
Is Their another place I can get apps and games from other than the market if so are they better or worse? I see games my m8 got on his iPhone and they are a lot better than any game I've seen on the market, what is the risk if I download from a different source?
I have had my phone for a few months now and it works great but every now and again one of my apps stop working for example: the facebook app tells me an error has occured whilst fetching data. or the com.sonyericsson app that I don't know what it does tells me the process android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly and tells me to force close. I~s there anything I can do to solve these minor errors.
Have been suffering with many paid apps missing since updating to 026 firmware. This morning turned the phone off and then back on and low and behold all my paid for apps are back and free stuff that wasn't showing up is now there.
Alot of x10 users seem to be using apps that are eating at their battery, but most people do not know which apps are causing this. So I created this thread for all X10 users to list any apps that they know eat battery very quickly, thus helping others, so they can remove the app(s) and gain more battery life
