In fact these are the best benchmarksover all I have seen in any entry level phone. In bechmarks it comes very close to dual-core phones and quite close to quad-core A9 phones too. The battery is also one of the best in entry level. Remember also that this model has ICS, but the single sim version Xperia E has JB. So go play with your Quad-core Krait phone and don´t bash on a entry level phone that beats about all other entry level phones.

Dual Standby? You're a bit too late Japan, the market has already advanced to Dual Active with Galaxy Grand and Micromax Canvas HD.

This is actually great looking phone, and the size is right. But the specs... oh man...

if you're looking for dual-SIM android phones, you might want to consider Lenovo phones.
Lenovo offers many dual-SIM Android phones that have good price/performance...

what's wrong with the design? This is suppose to be entry level by the way, in fact this is much better than most entry level phones in terms of "design", it would be actually easier to name a lot of phones that loses to it in terms of design than to name a lot of phones that wins against it...

I have to agree on the design though. This is not great but at least Sony is consistent in not recycling old designs. Much better than the fruit dealer design from 2007.

I'm happy to see Sony fixed the performance on their Cortex A5 models. On ics even. Hope they will issue an ics performance fix for Tipo and the others, would be good for their reputation.

The adreno 200 Enhanced is Ok on 320x480, keep in mind that this is 2.7x less pixels than 800x480, no stress for the gpu then. I tried Tipo and found it to have a very good graphics performance, better than Galaxy Tab 2 that has a much more powerful gpu but 1280x800 resolution, that's 6.6667x more pixels to handle! Of course the xperia E wins this battle.

There are people who wanted to try android environment and it would be practical to buy an entry level device first, before going to flagship devices. If they'll like the Android OS or not, then its up to them if they'll buy a flagship one or go back to there preferred OS. Its wiser to buy an entry level device (especially with JB OS) if you're not familiar to what you're using.

Passing it off as fact makes it no less an opinion, so it is best to avoid trying to speak for everyone.

Whilst I have always like Sony products, no one should buy any Android mobile phone regardless of brand that has only 512 RAM and or 4 mgs internal memory in total. These mobiles all have issues and should not be allowed in the market. It is insulting to consumers to be presented a device supposedly on value when in fact they are rubbish with upgrade issues, memory issues and lag issues, all affecting functionality.
