Before the Live with Walkman I previously purchased an Xperia Mini ST15i and it's much vaunted "Bravia Mobile engine". The best thing in sliced bread you may think, and yes it's screen does look pretty. Problem is, the phone itself had a serious factory defect. It either overheated quickly leading to all sorts of touch screen errors, or it simply shut down by itself for no apparent reason. I had two Xperia Mini replacements and both were plagued with these problems. I simply gave up on the ST15i and had it replaced with the LwW WT19i.

The LwW doesn't overheat, the touch screen doesn't malfunction, and it never involuntarily shuts down. Oh and by the way, the LCD isn't really that bad either. Saying it's "the worst" is just plain inaccurate and misleading. IMO, the difference is negligible.

You want a better screen? Then by all means get an Xperia Mini ST15i. The screen does look nice... if you can get it to work. Don't believe me? Google "ST15i problems".

im thinking about having my xperia mini swapped for SE Live because my boyfriend wants to Skype video call often and the mini doesn't have a front camera. Is it worth it?

Since you said that it has worst screen contrast, well it helps me to decide to chose xperia mini or neo V. I also read a review on this phone commenting on the screen resolution of the phone that it looks a little bit pixelated.

Here's the rooting tool:

FYI, Bravia engine is not a HARDWARE. Its a feature where SE Devs created to optimize pictures and videos upon it is saved on a the memory card/internal mem. This is a software technology.
