Sony Xperia tipo review: Mini just got bigger - read the full textThe NXT line gave Sony the strong start they needed after returning to the smartphone game on their own. The Japanese then focused on filling the lower ranks and, yet again, we see them look for inspiration in the old Sony Ericsson scrapbook...

This is just a HTC Wildfire S, but with Android ICS and made by SONY. No other differences exist.

I bought tipo last day in Kolkata and spend my whole day to analyse. It's good in design but internally it sucks. It's having touch control problem . Choosin one and opening other and very lagging . Taking much time in toggling task window. I am planning to replace it.

with an armv7 processor, adobe Flash and online games are supported and with an enhanced Adreno 200 GPU playing games like total recall,resident evil 4 is very very smooth.. also, the SoC itself is also capable of handling armv8, and armv9-designed apps -- courtesy of the website of Arm (the one who made the cortex a5)

i have got this phone 2 weeks ago, nice phone at this price range, good to handle, smooth performance..
Battery getting drained soon is one issue.. tried many options to get better battery performance but no luck..
I wil wait n see for few more weeks before i decide to give it back to Sony..

its an armv7 SoC with an enhanced adreno 200, thus, a cortex a5 proc. is capable of handling apps which is made for a8,a9 and a15 processors

> In reply to Sony what are you do @ 2012-10-01 09:43 from HBLE - click to readXperia Mini was NOT the lowest end at its time, and for a long time it did cost a lot more than what Tipo sells for. Tipo rather takes over for the old lower end Sony Ericssons, like X8 and W8, which both had Adreno 200, superslow 600MHz ARMv6 (ARM11) processors and a pathetic 168 MB RAM.

Xperia Mini did originally cost more than the newly launched Miro cost now. Sure Mini fell to a very low price but that was because of the touch control problems and battery problems that affected some units, Mini is more or less a defective phone (but most of them seem to work fine so no problem)

Compared to W8 we have to admit Tipo is a big leap forward, and it even cost less than W8 did at its time.
