Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 and HTC Touch Diamond Photo Comparison: What would you choose?

I know this is not much of a comparison but maybe some of you would choose one mobile phone over the other. The two mobile phones we are on about are the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 and HTC Touch Diamond.

Personally I would have to choose the HTC Touch Diamond just on the looks alone, the photos below show you what the two handsets look like up against each other. Oh yes this is clash of the phone wars, these two phones are very much talked about and are expected Windows Mobile smartphones that will whoa your heart. There will definitely be arguments about these two phones where some will say the HTC Touch Diamond just looks hot and it has all the bits a mobile phone needs, but then many people will say the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is the puppy to have because of the WVGA screen and the ultra-useful QWERTY keyboard.

Just so everyone knows just in case you have forgotten, the HTC Touch Diamond is smaller plus has the all new Touchflo interface which basically means (DAMN HOT). The downside to the HTC phone is that it does not have a physical keyboard. Please do take a look at the photos of these two phones side by side below this question.

The question is “Would you choose the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 or the HTC Touch Diamond?

    I’d say the Xperia X1 cause of the following reasons:

    1. It has a DVD Quality video recording (30Fps).
    2. built in GPS (HTC says that it might have GPS with some carriers but with other carries it will only be google maps which is abit stupid).
    3. QWERTY Keyboard.
    4. Expansion Card slot (meaning i can get an 8GB micro sd and have double the memory as the HTC)
    5. Screan is bigger and with widescreen resolution.
    6. Internet browsing is more or less the same as i saw a preview of the Xperia showing that when you flick your finger in internet explorer it goes down.
    7. 3.5 Headphone plug.

    Only difference is that the HTC has abit better UI, but no memro card slot so you’re stuch with 4GB, no QWERTY Keyboard, Video recording is not DVD Quality and may not have GPS with some carriers and no 3.5 headphone plug… oh i forgot is about $800 whish is expensive but we don’t know about the Xperia yet….

    ohhh i forgot 2 more things:

    8. The camera is probably better cause it’s based on sony’s cybershot with a touch focus technology (touch the screen at the point you want to focus to).
    9. In all videos of the HTC there was a lag when flicking through the menus and the response is not that fast (but maybe that’s because it’s a prototype)
    10. 3 inch widescreen not 2.8.

    I’d pick the Xperia X1 in a heartbeat. The physical keyboard and gorgeous screen are killer features for me. I’m counting the days until it is released.

    Just think about it…full width web browsing along with the capability to basically stream DVD quality movies displayed at max quality via 3G. All with a keyboard.

    I would have to go with the X1. Anybody who has ever used any of Sony Ericssons smartphones would also pick it. Besides I love the handwriting recognition.
