Siddhanth, 12 Oct 2011But there is no Bravia engine in the live with walkman. Also, I seriously doubt that sony will... moreThere are many models to choose, of course. Live Walkman as my recommendation as it is the closer alternative to mini/ mini pro mainly if budget is concerned. Also since Lucky said that it should provide dual camera, suppose not to be looked bulky like mini pro and... the issues on mini which are many users hv been facing with.., apart from the lack of BE this is the phone that close to his requirement.
About Walkman: I don't think SE has ever put a more advanced audio chip to a walkman phone, just look at w800/700/810i and k750 series..., they had almost identical audio output using their supplied headset - hpm-70, the difference only in marketing, w series focused in music and k for camera. So SE wouldn't bother to give better audio chip to their android walkman, but with the same price level they would supplied it with better accessories for audio experience (i.e headsets). Personally, I prefer to listen my music with powerAmp than using my w810i/w995, to me MegaBass is an advantage but also is a problem: it's great indeed, only if we use a pair good Sony/SE headset with megabass enhancement, but not working if I used it with headsets frm other brand like sennheiser with live bass system, while Sony headsets usually a bit lower in sound pwr level (SPL)

Also, I seriously doubt that sony will bother with putting a new audio chip. Also 2mm is hardly slimmer. If you need to type messages all day, then go for the mini pro. If not, then go for the mini. If secondary camera is a priority, then go for the pro obviously. The thickness is really not bothersome, but if you are wear really tight jeans, then its gonna be a little hard to accomodate it in your pocket. Alternatively, you could go for the neo V-not that much more expensive, and a lot slimmer than the mini.
shivatink, 11 Oct 2011how can u say its software problem so when the fix....?take a look at this thread men.. the moderator from SE answers all the questions..
[deleted post]You'd better go with Live-with-Walkman™ - android 2.3.4 on board, video chat camera, 3d sweep panorama, stereo speakers and even slimmer than xperia mini

Husam, 11 Oct 2011Hi, I know that most of android programs installed in Internal storage, so is the low internal... moreNo. The full 320 mb is available to the user, and most apps can be installed on the SD card. Low internal memory is not a problem.
Hi, I know that most of android programs installed in Internal storage, so is the low internal memory is a real problem with Xperia mini?
Is the 320 mg as -internal storage- all available for the user or it's have a system on it too , so the available memory is less than that?
Hey, anyone here tried to flash the new cyanogen mod's rom onto their mini? Looks promising. If anyone did, could you please give me step by step instructions? I'm kind of a newbie here to rooting and stuff.
THEultimateGEEK, 11 Oct 2011Neo V has price of around 17.5k and galaxy SL has gone down to 15.5k ! SL has got many better ... moreFlipkart still has the i9003 for 17.9K. Also, no updates to Ice Cream Sandwich for the SL. so you will be stuck with a phone that Sammy cares little about.

[deleted post]Neo V has price of around 17.5k and galaxy SL has gone down to 15.5k ! SL has got many better features than the v and it is cheaper only the camera of v is better ( more features of cam + led flash )! if one doesnt have the best cam as priority then should go for SL and even sl has an excellent cam but v's is better :)
I've been using this phone for more than a month already and still doesnt experience any problems. All i can say is that im totally satisfied with the all around performance of this little monster phone. For those of you whore experiencing problems with this phone, hope sony really fixed this issue with the latest build.
This phone's with me for almost a week now. I have played games, surf the net, use it while charging and make a call to extent that the unit gets feels warm. So far none of the issue mentioned here hinders my experience with the phone. Even updated it to the latest FW and still as reliable as before. Only drawback is this is power hungry little device so I have to juice it almost everyday. Overall, this is one fine phone.

im facing this weird problem too ( constant vibration, capacitive buttons going crazy). really frustated.. been to SE service centre, they just updated the build no use though, now they say they wud change the board.. nobody wud expect to buy such phone which needs a regular visit to SE..
