I bought Sony Xperia Tipo White 2 weeks back, this is a superb phone with light weight and best build quality. I have used phones like explorer, lg optimus net, galaxy ace etc etc and i feel this is the best phone with no lags, The hardware quality is as lovely as Apple, best for gaming, best battery backup, superb touch and everything else that should make you buy this phone. Dont think much about it n get confused. just go for it, nothing can be better anywhere. This phone is times better than every phone less than 12 thousand in market, Comeon!!!

whenever you buy a phone in this price range then you should know that you will not get a very good android experience. for a good gaming and video experience you should raise your budget and buy a mid ranger. anyone using android will tell u that at least a 1ghz proc is necessary for a good performance.

I totally agree with rish. If you want to play HD games then the chat is not for you. but keep in mind that playing hd games puts a lot of load on the processor and if your budget is in this range then I think you are not the type to change phones every year. playing hd games or any other games on a phone reduces the life by some extent, so think before you buy.

> In reply to rjvsinha @ 2012-09-19 11:44 from uv9G - click to readwell for the games I said that you should wait till the videos are uploaded. Do one thing. search for "samsung galaxy chat" on youtube and set the search "filter" to sort videos "by upload date". This way you will see all the latest videos. Do the same for "sony xperia tipo". Do this thing daily and you will see all the latest videos and reviews then you will be able to decide easily. As far as I can say gaming videos will not be available until many people have it and upload their videos. so you will have to wait for a month to see all games etc on both the phones. and if you text a lot then the chat will be better for you.

I do alot of text messaging thats why i wanted better scrren but having qwerty with decent screen size is the main reason why i liked galaxy chat.

> In reply to rish- @ 2012-09-19 11:27 from SdsE - click to readI already said that the tipo should be better for games because of higher res and good GPU. I don't play games on a 3 inch screen so that does not matter to me. What I want is good app performance and that will be there with the cortex A9+512 MB of RAM.

> In reply to th3D @ 2012-09-19 11:09 from vaNH - click to readyeah the miro is definitely better but it costs way too much in India at this time. The price at launch is almost similar to the dual core powered xperia u. As far as I am concerned I like the feel of real keys under my fingers when I type something. Just wish that the keypad is not for typing only. I mean shortcuts etc. I just really hate to use the touch screen for everything. As far as the res is concerned I'm okay with it. I don't play games and I do not watch videos on a 3 inch screen. I prefer that on my PC.

i want to add something about the tipo, the display. The colors are ok but not good for viewing photo or video, plus the viewing angle is bad in landscape, you need to tilt the left side away from you to get good picture. This is obviously a very cheap TN panel display, as is to be expected at this price but it really leaves you wishing for more.

The Miro should be much much better, so i am sure most ppl would benefit from paying more to get the Miro instead, with full 16M color on a led backlit 3.2" display. Performance is the same as Tipo.

> In reply to dp @ 2012-09-19 10:20 from v{S% - click to readThats good specs then. But shifting away from the Tipo, with a 320x240 display? Qwerty phones have become a niche market, for the specially interested. But galaxy chat will certainly steal lotsa customers from qwerty Nokia Asha series, real touch ui android instead of featurephone S40 crap.

I am qwerty fan but still i would not consider the galaxy chat over the Tipo, but over galaxy pocket and galaxy Y or any other 320x240 phones, sure i get the galaxy chat instead, no doubt

> In reply to rjvsinha @ 2012-09-19 10:40 from uvpX - click to readif the optimus l3 can run these games then the gchat should be able to do that too but I can't say anything for sure. Keep watching videos on youtube. people generally post videos of games on their phones. you should wait for sometime until those videos are posted. the videos will also show which game runs fast and which one doesn't. I think the tipo will be better for games because of the higher res and a known GPU but just wait for the videos and then you will be able to decide.
