I am from India and I found nothing wrong about this handset. in fact its great for its price. may be the phones which were released in the beginning had fault.

How dense can one get? This is faster than an ARM11 running at 1.4GHz. GHz is not a measurement of performance.
Live With Walkman is too much better than this flop model. 800 mhz with Android 4.0 is very slow. Atleast 1GHz processor is compulsory. 512MB RAM is fine.
- great design;
- good performance;
- mediocre camera;
- low screen quality;
- small screen for typing (gets better on landscape mode though).
Try this to improve the touch problem, it helps.
Go to Settings -> Sound,
turn off these two:
- Touch sounds
- Vibrate on touch
Maybe you can leave the vibrate on, havent tested if it makes a ddifference, i just turned off both to make sure. You can leave vibrate on for the keyboard.
Its better when selecting alternate words from the dictionary while texting now.
The worst now is that i still experience missed taps in Bad Piggies, that has destroyed many promising attempts for me and i had to restart the level, HMPF!
Another thing, remember to remove the blue plastic protector from the camera lens, it makes indoor photography a bit better. It took many days before i noticed there was a protector eheh. I left it on anyway, in case i sell this phone soon to get a dualcore full resolution or HD Xperia.
rafiq, 02 Oct 2012can anyone tell me what is the major problems in sony xperia tipoAs you have read, the touchscreen.
the touch is not too good...but it can be made better by using go-launcher ex theme....it is better now,,,

How is it good for you if people from Philippines will buy Tipo after reading your opinion? What about my Tipo, bought in philippines and having the same problem as you say its only problem in India?
I think you have no experience with touch and android, you dont know what to expect, i am sure your Tipo has the same problem.
Sriram, 01 Oct 2012This is better than xperia mini bcoz it has a better internal memory ....... So you can have ... moreBoss how is the musical effect (headset & loud speaker) AND Wht abt the RING VOLUME
This is better than xperia mini bcoz it has a better internal memory .......
So you can have more inbuilt apps ....
those hu r complaining about the screen are mostly from india. I'm from phil. And i never ncountered as bad as metioned below, the touch did well, the only thing i don't like is when your taking picture in low light the nightmode is useless. my tipo was so poor as i compared to my nokia c2-03 2mp in low light.
Bought mine in Philippines also, Xperia Store in SM. The speed of the launcher is not a problem, it responds eventually, but not always.
HOwever guys, my general experience on the touch problem shows that it is a software glitch. When for example selecting an alternate word from dictionary while texting, the word gets highlighted, but not selected. It would not be highlighted (background color changes momentarily) if the touch was not registered.
I now believe its some kind of glitch in the UI software that in someway ignores the last part of the touch cyclus, the part where it registers the lifting of your finger. Those of you who have experience with computer programming know about this cycle, a mouse click on the PC is not complete before the last part is done, that is the point where you release the mouse button again, lets call it the OnMouseUp event, and OnFingerUp event for touchscreen. Tipo seems to get lost between OnFingerDown and OnFingerUp, possibly because it registers an OnFingerMove event between the two other events. (that means it registers a slide of the finger even when you dont slide it?
If i am correct in my guess then maybe Sony can fix this simply by increasing the threshold for whats a tap and wats a slide, but its more likely that its a bug they need to find, which can be much harder to do. With bugs developers often do not know where to start, running code step by step is sometimes the only last solution, lots of manual work. In worst case its a hardware problem where for example the touch sensor is passing false data to the software.
subin, 30 Sep 2012which one will be better to buy .., SONY xperia TIPO or HTC explorer..?? cant v upgrade HTC ... morehello subin,i recommend you to go with the xperia tipo rather than the htc explorer. both are very similiar in config and performance but tipo has the upper hand as it has ics,better internal memory than the explorer which has just 90 mb of internal memory and the explorer's os can't be upgraded to ics as htc has ruled out ics updates for their phone which have processor less than 800mhz.
