brought this phone yesterday .. its superb :)very fast downloads and very clear.
1) Is it possible to overclock mini pro?
2) And if so how?
3) Does it affect the battery performance?
4) How is the display quality?
5) Does a small 3 inch screen feel too small and does it support all high end android applications?
I am new to the smartphone and android world...So help is appreciated...Thank you in advance
the speaker produces really good sound, its sounds natural and clear. Enabling the xLOUD just makes the sound like I've heard from low end or basic nokia phones or china phones. Their sound like robot! I prefer to deactivate the xLOUD. And I hate the home button.
Users please comment on the BATTERY LIFE of this phone...does it last atleast a day...this is the only point before i buy this phone.
Aria kh, 25 Aug 2011Please let us know when you get the new mobile if the problem with Xloud or HD recording has b... moreSure i will let you know, i will be getting my mobile today afternoon, actually i did not have a problem with Video( that is HD Recording). It was just with that Xloud.
I think this(Xperia Mini pro) is also one of the best release of Sony Ericson. There is not a problem With Xloud in all sets. In some sets the problem may be there at the beginig itself or may be 2 days like that but if you find a problem go ahead and report it to the sony ericson service centre and they will replace the phone itself if the fault is there on it, cause for me i had the same problem and they did replace it for me. Really the sony service centre very great. And i would like to say something to the people who dont like this xperia mini pro. The thing is if you dont like Sony ericson phones or xperia mini pro then dont buy it. No one forced you people to buy it. And for some people who dont even have that cell and never experienced the mobile in hands they just tell wrong stuff about the cell even if it is a good one. Because of this some people get confused. so what i have to say is that nothing is perfect and problems do occur in our normal life. Well to say about Xperia Mini Pro - "Its Awesome" and i really do like all of its feature and thanks to sony ericson for a reasonable price for Xperia mini pro.

So the XLoud function HAS a problem on Xperia Mini Pro.
GSMArena has also mentioned that in the review..
hari c, 25 Aug 2011did u buy the phone..?No not yet.. It's not available here yet.
I just got my Xperia Mini Pro 2 an hour ago after reading review GsmArena review.
Super responsive touchscreen.
No lag at all.
I am shocked seeing its resolution. Is it really 320x480? Otherwise I would surely consider to buy.
Aria kh, 24 Aug 2011Hey please record a video in a silent environment and let us know if the noise exist or not wh... moreI actually posted earlier about that :) The video came out perfectly silent. So it could be that the SK17a doesn't have this problem, but it's still just anecdotal.
I may actually put mine up on eBay, since I'm a little disappointed with the camera. I was impressed by the video quality, but the still shots seem like they didn't resolve as much detail as I would have liked. Like I said before, I'm used to using a very good Nokia camera so it might just be me.
So people who and all love xperia mini pro please do verify the Xloud technology in your mobile after your purchase and do check it after 2 days or later cause the sound may get low if there is a fault in your mobile. i think most of you guys are aware of this xloud technologly anyway i will tell it.the xloud option is used to provide better quality in volume/loud as the name itself specifies it.when you enable it the sound will be loud and good(its suitable in a noisy environment) and when you disable it the normal sound. some of you may feel that "guess this is the normal sound even if xloud is enabled" but thats where you all are wrong(cause after you get used to listening to the music in your mobile, yo may think that the sound is normal only, but it is not). if you feel that the sound is little low than the useful you can find it easily and check it out in the service centre and your mobile will be replaced and also notice if there is any backgroung noise disturbance( like with the zzzzzzz sound) while recording your videos. in this case also your mobile will be replaced by the sony ericson service centre. The xperia mini pro is a good mobile with a reasonable price and iam lovin it and please do check it properly if there is any fault in it at the time of purchase or within a week of use
hey guys i just bought this xperia mini pro last saturday. I got to accept the features are mind blowind and iam very much satisfied with the 5MP camera and that HD vedio Recording. when i played the video in my PC that i took from my mobile it was clear(but not HD) yet it satisfied me cause it was little bit closer to that HD in output.IN mobile the video is HD and that is for sure. the audio was clear and loud too without any disturbance. The Xloud technology is great. But after 2 days i encountered a problem, most of may not notice this point but i would like to tell you all so that you can be careful and identify the problem. The thing is the Xloud feature is used to increase the volume. what i mean is that the sound would be more loud when you enable this option and when you disable its little bit low. My Xperia mini pro was good for 2 days and then i found out that the volume got very low. the thing i noticed was that the volume was little loud when i disable the xloud feature(which is fault in the mobile)and when i enable it the volume got more lower. when i took it to the vendor(univer cell) he told me that everything is alright, he cant even identify the problem inspite of showing and telling him the problem. Then i took my mobile along with the full box and bill to the Sony Ericson service centre and i explained the problem i faced with it and it has been just 4 days since the date i purchased and know what i was correct and he issued me the certficate for replacement of mobile.
Hi friends,what is the difference between Qualcomm (MSM8255 and QSD8255) Snapdragon processors?am confused to buy...help me..
thanx gsmarena for reviewing this phone, only thing you didn't mentioned is the "facebook inside xperia". but anyway nice review and m going to buy this little beast for sure...
It is 512mb ram or 384mb ram?
I check in my memory it is only 110/355mb.
so i think it is only total 384mb ram.
and the processor is 1Ghz? or 800Mhz?
according this link :
it is mention 800mhz only
First of all let me tell all XMP lovers that all Xperia Mini Pro(s) dont have the chirping sound on video recording (Let shortform be CSVR) problem, ya but most of them do have. So there is a good news for all those who are wanting to buy the phone but are worried abt the CSVR problem and the wud be bad news who have already bought it and there piece is more than 7 days old now. To clearify dis problem, i rang up SE India, so they told me that after u have bought XMP and are having any problems be it the CSVR problem, ur set wud be replaced with a new one with in 7 days of purchase as many times there is any problem. Thus, im buying dis cute beast and hope to get a one with no CSVR problem.
