bought the phone about 3 weeks ago and the phone has really started to piss me off now. The capacitive touch buttons work automatically and after a usage of 3-4 mins b'coz of over heating and also stated this problem on the sony ericsson forum where i found hundreds of users facing the same problem in less than a week after buying. Also the service centre guys are not ready to accept any defect in the phone. So I strongly recommend anyone buying this or any Sony ericsson phone for that matter to drop their ideas and switch to some other sensible and having a good QA dept company.
Raj, 16 Nov 2011i purchased the xperia mini a month back n it was working fine till 2 week back, thn i got t o... morehey dude
i'm also thinking abt buying this phone
tell me in detail abt the problem n r u satisfied with the phone after an update ??
Extremely outstanding piece of technology.
I love its look; small but fast and powerful! perfectly shaped and curved unlike most phone i've had!
Music, Camera and video quality is simply amazing for such a small device!!! But a bit tight on typing and chatting.
At first, we didn't get along well.. But now that i have grabbed its full potential performance, i love it!
However, just a few (But not too serious) things that i dont like:
1. Battery life is too short! Even if you are using it for day-to-day tasks.
2. Its a bit too quiet and reserved. Good when i'm sleeping at night... But bad when i'm in the other room and someone's calling, or to even when i'm having a stroll on the street.
3. Not that comfortable for web-browsing, texting and chatting especially on Facebook.
Overall... I would recommend the phone to average users who just wanna chill back and enjoy a nice, cosy but still high quality phone. Certainly not to businessmen/office users, adventurers or social-networking :-)
When I got the phone it was having some diseases like fever and shivering and after the calibration every problems got solved,but still small heating problems presist(its due to over usage only)never mind the battery capacity becz itz android,at minimal usage it will be alive for hardly 2days,
Over all its the best phone at this price range
I have a question for xm users ,my phones rear speaker sounds very poor.do you have any solution for that?

i purchased the xperia mini a month back n it was working fine till 2 week back, thn i got t over heating & flickering problem n i went to service center they told they will fix all tis issue by upading the OS version to 2.3.4. its the best sony mobile under the affordable budget. if you want to buy this mobile get it updated to 2.3.4 it will not have any probs.. its really rocking mobile bcz of the bravia engine clarity :)

Rahul8893, 15 Nov 2011but here not showing usb mass storage Oh sorry.. I'm not with my computer right now so I can't check what were the options. ...did it ask you whether you want to install PC companion? If so then approve it, coz after pc companion has been installed whenever the phone is connected it will be appear automatically on your computer as a new drive (phone memory card drive). But it's more practical if you install file manager app to the phone.
Siddhanth, 15 Nov 2011I didn't mean to offend you. I happen to have a perfectly working mini, which is why I suggest... morewell i am not offended dude .. i am happy your phone is working fine ..
