I want to know one thing. The internal memory available for apps is 608 MB at the start. Can we move the apps to the other part of the internal storage? I mean the 2+ GB part. This will make the effective mem for apps the whole of the internal storage. Someone who has the phone please check it out.

just saw a games review of the galaxy chat. it ran an hd game "cut the rope" smoothly although the opening hd video did not play due to the low res (it won't play on the tipo either). it ran temple run and some other games smoothly. some games had a little bit of lag which was not a big problem. total recall worked smoothly but the reviewer said that due to the coating on the screen he was not able to move the gun fast. I would say that overall it was very good for a casual gamer like me. I am the same guy "dp". Just changed my nickname.

> In reply to rish- @ 2012-09-20 23:13 from SdsE - click to readWell thats a pretty lot of study sunshine... But here are few things u missed and misled others..
1. The limitations in eu and states zones both are same values xpressed in different numbers due to difference in measurement parameters and procedure. So the SAR values are the same no matter what the system's used to indicate.
2. The given SAR values have been misread . As I've watched the datasheet of tipo its "clearly" mentioned that its the regional limitations. The real sar values are here eusar-1.03 ussar-0.8.
3. To make tiny phone like tipo to emit that levels of sar may be you should pound your phone for about 2 years untill your phone burst and reach your expectation for about few seconds.(so dont worry your spermcount is not gonna come down by using this;-)

> In reply to rjvsinha @ 2012-09-22 13:41 from uvca - click to readyes the processor in galaxy chat is better than tipo. erformance wise it is better but it has a rsolution of 320x240 which ruins all the good things abut chat. many hd games wont work because of low resolution , and it has severe pixelation. so wait till 15 oct , samsung will release a phone with similar specs with full touch , if it also has same resolution 240 x 320 then dont buy it , go for tipo / explorer , but if it is going to have a resolution of 320 x 480 with 3.2 inch screen . its going to be a kickass phone . so wait i am also in the same boat. for me it is either samsung if it release 3.2 with 320 x480 or htc explorer. i am not going for tipo at any cost for two reasons. High SAR value and bad earphone music quality

Hi friends,
I am a first time smart phone user. I bought tipo through adexmart. These are my conclusions about tipo:
Pros:
1. Good looks
2. Avg. battery back up. First time i wooried alot about battery since i downloaded about 500+ mb it lasted only for 2 to 2.5 hours. Now i finetuned and its running for more tha a day with noram usage.
3. Low weight
4. Movie video quality is good more than my expectations..
Cons:
1. Some games are getting strucked especially 3D games. So i avoided those games like need for speed etc..
2. Camera is not good. After removing a filmy layer pre-attached to cam screen now i can manage avg.
photos.
3. Ear phone sounds are not awesome its ok..
4. Many applications are running in background like music, google+, facebook, help etc...even if i dont open them. I have to use app. killer for removing these regularly.


On overall its a avg, phone for starters...

Is d entire 2.5 GB user accessible memory available for installing apps? I saw a frnds LG Optimus E400 wherein out of the 1GB internal memory only 160MB is available for installing apps n this is quite low. Wanted to know about the memory available for installing apps in tipo before i buy this fone...
