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.

I have to add abt the cam, even it does have zoom it is still pretty useless except in daylight or extremely bright indoors environment. Even a normal bright room will result in blurred and dark photos.
i would like to buy this phone so i need to know does it have zooming option in camera and support multitasking.please tell me
yup i was right the audio quality in headphones sucks badlyyy
The Sony Xperia tipo didn't quite manage to impress in our traditional audio quality test. When connected to an active external amplifier the smartphone got mostly mediocre scores, and had volume levels way below average.
It has headset included in the box. Mine had, and its a bit good too.
So much talk about the Xperia Mine on the first page of this review, why is that? Tipo is a much cheaper phone than Mini, Miro is more like the follow up for the Mini. Mini was fast and powerful and well specced, like a luxury compact phone, great cam and everything. Tipo is just cheap, it has no impressive specs like the Mini had.
