All-in-One Xperia S Experience for the Xperia X10 Mini
If you own a Sony Xperia device, there’s a good chance you can run the software from many other Xperia devices. In fact, we’ve written about it a number of times. There is now a way for Xperia X10 owners to run pretty much the entire interface from the Sony Xperia S.
Released by XDA Senior Member Emperor.dk, the package includes a number of elements to help your X10 feel like a Xperia S. To use, simply download the zip and flash it in a custom recovery. If you want to uninstall, you’ll have to restore a Nandroid backup—which means you should probably make a Nandroid backup.
To make the experience more complete, Emperor.dk has also included links to other applications to supplement what comes in the mod. These include the Xperia S launcher, the Xperia S lock screen, and the Xperia S CM7 theme for theme chooser. Additionally, there are links to the Xperia S fonts, more apps, and Timescape. If you enjoy the Xperia S look and feel but don’t (or can’t) dish out the money for an upgrade, then this is a perfect way to get the experience without buying the phone.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
