Android does not give you any user control over running apps, you dont decide what to keep open, android does it for you. Compared to a Nokia N900 that is not much of a multitasking at all, Android i pretty pathetic this way.
Tipo has A5 CPU, its already v7, theres no old ARM11 (v6) stuff here, check the benchmarks in the review, it does very well in everything except BenchmarkPi.

Anonymous, 23 Sep 2012no man! galaxy gio is on par with armv6 bad camera low ram !!!Agree, but Tipo has bad cam also, quite bad, really.
Gio not only has an exceptionally slow CPU, and about half ram of Tipo, thats bad enough already but in addition the Gio's storage is only around 160MB. And lets not forget that its upgradeable only to 2.3. In other words, Galaxy Gio is useless in more than one way.
Ayman, 23 Sep 2012its like galaxy gio, almost same specs with the same back designno man! galaxy gio is on par with armv6 bad camera low ram !!!

Warning warning. supplement to my last post. If you like Xperia Mini, be very aware of the existence of Xperia X10 Mini, its a very different phone and its not good at all. Xperia Mini is the one to get, learn the difference.
adad, 23 Sep 2012yes it may have the better specs but it lose tipo in design,ics perform,battery,storage,loudsp... moreMy mother in law has Xperia Mini and it totally owns the Tipo in everything. Its so powerful, plays and records 720p HD video, the display is beautiful 16M color high quality, cam is beautiful with a well timed flash, it has ICS, its processor is so fast, the graphics even faster, never need to press twice on the screen (unlike Tipo), and so on and on. The only things may be the 320MB internal storage (but theres 2 2GB card included) and battery life, 1200mAh is not enough for Mini but its not bad also, my mother in law charge only every 3 days (light user but she use it)
Xperia Mini is the best value for money no doubt. Too bad i could not find one, then i would not be stuck woth Tipo now. BUt the Tipo is acceptable after all.
Why do they still use fixed focus cameras on new devices. I truly think that the price difference is under 30$.... and for that 30$ less you get crap photos :)
rish-, 23 Sep 2012dont even think about tipo if you want to listen to music in headset , its even below average ... moreBut u r from India, right? Its a well known fact that there are very different requirements in India than most other countries, especially western countries. There are no open noisy buses and noone is bringing a noisy goat in teh bus (or anywhere else), in fact buses are so quiet that even with Tipo you dont need full volume. Not a problem ppl, dont worry too much about the volume.
I doubt a cellfone made to Indian volume requirements would be legal to sell in the European Union, it would be much louder than the maximum allowed. Even toys making loud noises are illegal, my relatives were questioning toys i brought from philippines, they could not believe so noisy toys were allowed anywhere in the world, and they did not want their kids to use those toys. And it is a fact that people from noisy countries more often are hearing impaired coz of the noise exposure that starts already at birth.
