read this pdf

http://www-support-downloads.s...r_ST21_1.pdf

yes it is from OFFICIAL SONY WEBSITE and you will get this pdf in printed form in your manual inside the phone read it . it says clearly it has 1.62 w/kg in 10 different languages. this is for st2i , whereas st21a is for american version . difeerence is of i and a . international and america. Their radios are different and hence they use different materials in phone. hence there are 2 models of this phone

> In reply to make.believe @ 2012-09-17 10:19 from vbPJ - click to readdude I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings. I just said that the stock in the US is according to their rules, so maybe the next stock in India will be according to the new Indian rules. Why are u fighting dude? You are referring to page 109 which has info for US and canada. just find '1.62' in that file. then you will see that in the other countries where the limit is 2, the SAR value of the handset has been found to be 1.62(maximum) at the ears. read page 117 where the info is specified for south america. and flipkart in India says that it is 1.62. Go and fight with flipkart. I'll not reply to any of your comments now.

> In reply to bharat @ 2012-09-17 10:11 from v{S% - click to readbro original galaxy y also has a gpu its name its name is power 1v gpu, but since it is rarely used gpu , no game company released any graphic data for this gpu, hence all the games had to be played via chainfire by emulating due to lack of support. the chip in galaxy chat is Broadcom BCM21654 , it is newly launched and it has a enhanced version of power iv gpu which offers better 3d graphics. but the only prblem will be lack of support for games and drivers .

galaxy chat and galaxy y 2 will have same cpu 850 mhz broadcom cortex a9 , but it will have the worst support for games, you still have to root and install chainfire 3d and use pluguins and etc.

by the way that 1.27 w/kg sar value is for american version not international version as usa have different radios and network

> In reply to make.believe @ 2012-09-17 08:13 from vbPJ - click to readI agree with you. Recommending L5 is a bad choice. LG is bad when it comes to software development. I also read a lot of reviews and comments saying about it being very laggy. They didn't even did a good job with L3. Many users now are complaining about L3 hanging up, restarting and many more problems with the software.

As of now, Tipo has the best hardware and software for this price range. There's a rumor now about Galaxy Y2 having the same or a little higher hardware with ICS to compete with Tipo. But there is still no official statement about it.

For those afraid about Tipo having high SAR, better wait for other manufacturer like samsung to release a new phone to compete.

As of now, Tipo is the best of this price range.
Good job Sony.
