Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Call Volume Low Fixed Asap2 / Battery Life Very Poor

Aug 10, 2010

so what if each of uses this thread to clearly state the problems that they are having with the X10, please don't go on about firmware updates etc as this isn't an actual problem, we all knew the firmware the phone was running when we bought it, so therefore I feel we have to accept that is down to us as we made the choice to buy the phone. Please be polite and concise and hopefully Jeff or someone from SE will take the time to read the thread and answer in due course, remember though it may take a little time for people to post the problems they are having and also for Jeff and co to find the answers for us.

please pop in and acknoledge the posts every now and then, just so we know our complaints aren't falling on deaf ears. I am hving problems with 1/ In call volume is very low and needs to be fixed asap 2/ Battery Life is very poor, I mainly only send texts at the moment as I cant hear calls and also use the ebook reader for maybe an hour or two a day, yet I have to charge the phone halfway through the day, even though I fully chatge it at night.....

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Keyboard / Battery And Call Volume

Sep 30, 2010

I noticed a lot of people making posts asking the same questions time and time again, so I thought I would make a post for people to list all common problems and how to resolve them. I will edit the list below with every common problem, as they are posted. Problem List:

Keyboard
Problem: The default Keyboard is too difficult to use!
Resolved: Download the HTC keyboard from the link below, it is much easier to use than the X10 and default android keyboard! Alternatively, you can choose from a selection of keyboards in the Android Market
[MOD] HTC_IME (8th June) v27: Small fix - xda-developers
You can also customize your own HTC keyboard to your liking here:
http://www.gimpsta.com/themer/

Battery
Problem: The battery does not last very long!
Resolved: Doing this has worked for with every phone I have owned, just follow these instructions. Wait until your battery has completely drained (so the phone will not turn on). Then charge your phone to 100%. Repeat this process as many times as you want, until you feel like your battery is lasting long enough. Also, the more often you charge your battery the longer it will last, over time

Call Volume
Problem: The call volume is too low, even at highest setting!
Resolved: At the moment there is no setting or app that can further increase the volume, but there is something known as the "Sweet Spot". The sweet spot is a spot on the area of the phone, circled in the image below, that enabled you to hear better. Keep trying different spots of the call speaker to find the sweet spot.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Phone Eating Away Battery / On-call Volume Not Very Loud

Nov 1, 2010

My phone seems to be eating my battery away more than normal. No new apps have been installed and I am only using the phone how I normally have. what could be causing this? And also the in call volume is way to low, I am a gas engineer and working on site with this phone is a nightmare I can not hear a thing. Will the 2.1 update change this? I can not wear a Bluetooth headset for too long as it starts to hurt.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Poor Battery Charge / Can't Add Contacts To Address Book?

Jul 2, 2010

I was aware of the poor customer reviews of the x10's battery life, but it's turned out to be much worse than expected.

I will take the phone off of charge at 8am and ensure that no tasks or apps are running, not use the phone throughout the day, then by 3pm the charge level is around 30%. Often, if I don't start charging the phone at that point at work, the phone will run out of charge completely by around 4pm. I check throughout the day and tasks are not running, so how is the charge being lost so quick?!

This problem is not getting better: I read customer reviews saying that the battery problem improves after around the first month, but my case is the opposite - it started to get even worse after the first month!

I am also having a problem with adding contacts to the address book - all of a sudden it seems that I cannot add new contacts. I will add one contact, go back to the address book and see the new contact being displayed in the list, but when adding a second new contact both the first and second new contacts disappear. I do not have a problem with phone memory, I have tried saving to both SIM and memory, have tried backing up my address book in case that makes a difference, have switched the phone off/on again, but all to no avail. I have tried adding a new number to an existing contact and the new contact seems to disappear. It goes without saying that I have read the x10 instructions on this subject (and it goes without saying that I make sure to press save/done when adding the new entry).

It's got to the point where I am starting to regret choosing the X10. On the face of it, this is an excellent phone, but two relatively simple problems are ensuring that I feel like I own the poor man's smartphone (dare I say it, I wish I chose an iPhone now).

I checked with both my network operator and the shop I bought it from - unfortunately I am outside the 28 day initial period (I am in the UK), so the only recourse offered to me by the shop is to give me 20 to buy either a new battery or to buy a new cheap pay as you go phone so that I can return the handset/battery to SE. The problem with both options is that I am not confident that it will resolve the problem.

Anyone else had any issues like this?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Way To Increase Low In-call Volume?

Nov 26, 2010

Just bought the x10i and loving it, got a few problems but which phone on the market is 100% perfect. I do however have an issue with the low in-call volume and ringer volume. Its very low and struggling to hear the other party, I see from other threads this isn't an isolated issue. Will SE be sending out an update to solve this problem? It seems like a batch issue as not everyone is experiencing this fault.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Ringer And In Call Volume Too Low

Nov 26, 2010

The in call and ringer volume on X10 is way too low, I can hardly hear the other party on a call at a shopping centre or food court. This is very frustrating as making a phone call is the most basic function of a phone but X10 fail in this aspect badly. I am sure a firmware upgrade can increase the volume on X10, its just a matter of whether SE will implement it. Can everyone who had low in-call and ringer volume problem of your X10 report here and hopefully SE will listen to us and give us a fix ASAP. Other than this volume problem, I reckon its a fantastic phone. But SE gotta act NOW!

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Way To Increase Battery Life?

Oct 7, 2010

I just ordered the Xperia X10a. Customer Retentions gave me a great deal on it (Great deal = entirely 100% free, I figure I really couldn't beat "free" :P) and so I said "Yes, that sounds lovely" (not an exact transcript of my reaction). I now await its arrival in the mail. So I've been pretty damn excited about it. But then I did the ONE thing I told myself not to do: go trolling on the internet for all the negatives. I knew there were going to be negatives, that's the nature of smartphones, there's always going to be something if not multiple somethings. But I have to admit I was unprepared for the sheer amount of complaints over the battery life. Now I'm depressed (not really, but you know what I mean). Did I just order myself a lemon? I mean don't get me wrong, you still can't beat a free phone I suppose, but is it a free mobile phone, or a free "I need to get to a wall outlet so I can charge this thing because it discharged after only an hour and a half" phone, which isn't exactly all that mobile (ok, well it's mobile, just not mobile + useful at the same time -- I admit I was sort of hoping for the latter. Pipe dreams, what can I say).

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Battery Life - Not Getting More Than 12 Hours

Apr 8, 2010

Is anyone else having serious problems with the battery life? After fully charging the phone, I can't get more than 12 hours usage out of it, even if it's on standby for 95% of the time. I'm guessing something is seriously using up the battery somewhere but I'm not sure what. I've been to Settings --> About --> Phone Usage and it says where the battery has been used, but 40%+ is on Phone idle, and 40%+ is on cell idle (I'm guessing signal), but surely this shouldn't be happening, the figures on the Sony website give standby hours in the hundreds not less than 10.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Solution To Battery Life

May 14, 2010

Ok people, I have found a way to extend your battery life enormously, to the extent that it is what it was advertised by Sony. Some of you guys may know that I have helped on a lot of other minor issues when the x10 first came out so am not lying on this.In the battery life thread, I have mentioned that last week, my battery was amazingly great where overnight, it only reduced 3-5% of the battery and a good days use only drained about 30-40% of the battery. I did not know how this happened but I have finally found out now after testing it 3 times.

My solution:
I turned off my phone, then turn it back on, used tasks killer right away because the phone when turned on, activates a lot of apps and then i killed all apps except my beautiful widgets and settings. And that is it, battery was amazing and you can use your apps as normal and battery life was as good as mentioned above.

Now, the problem that kills the battery where you will have to restart your phone again for the good battery life: When downloading a new app or updating from the market, the battery became horrendous again. When I did this, the battery overnight drained 25-30% and a days use drained over 60%.But all I did was restart my phone after installing a new app or updating and did what I mentioned above and the battery was back to it's amazing self.I have tested this 3 times and it works for me. It is as simple as turning off your phone and back on again so go and try it to see if it works for you.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Service Test - In Call Volume Potential?

Jun 29, 2010

Was flipping through the xda forum the other day and found a hidden menu you can enter through the lock screen;

When the screen is on but locked you press menu(left hardware key), back(right hardware key), back, menu, back, menu, menu, back

This enters you into service menu. decided to check out the service test menu and there's a test option for 'earphone'. when you press it... my my how clear the earpiece can sound - with this kind of loudness and clarity i might have a chance of hearing my phone calls outside of an isolated soundproof room!

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Battery Life Improved By Itself With Routine Use

May 27, 2010

A couple of days ago, the battery went from 8:00am right through to 5:00am (i.e. 21 hours) with around 2 hours of phone calls, about half with bluetooth, probably 50 texts and maybe 15 minutes of WiFi. After all of that, it still had 50% left according to the battery widget I have. Unbelievable! I had changed nothing from the previous day, in terms of settings, applications etc. The next day, it was back to it's usual 15 hours before getting down to about 10%. I have absolutely no idea why it decided to give me a decent day!
