> 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.

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.

hey guys I'm not against Sony. I love the company and it's products. I'm interested in this phone that's why I'm commenting here. What I personally feel is that the initial stock was imported to India before the implementation of the law, so those models have higher SAR value since the previous limit was 2. The new stock which will be imported will have less SAR value as they have done with the US stock. The Indian authorities may be lazy, but Sony is not, so it will follow all the rules so that it does not get into trouble later when the authorities finally wake up. Sony is a big multinational company, so I don't expect it to break the rules after their implementation. I don't want to lead anyone away from this phone guys.

in us limit is 1.6w/kg n in euro zone its 2.0w/kg..!!
now what does dat mean?? american autority cares more for ther people n European cares less? certainly not..!!

there is a diffrent standards of conducting tests in various zones/countries or regions(different ways) whichever they think is right..!! thats y u will c different figures for EU SAR values n US SAR values..isnt it? even on GSMarena dey give u two figures..!! actually both d figures r same..!! by same i mean d end effect or radiation is same..!! n both d values r proportional with respect to testing method..!!

so dont get confused..!! high SAR value certainly has bad efefct on human body..but the HIGH value is region specific according to regions..!!

dont recommend xperia u to anyone. It too has a sar value of 1.62 w/kg . And i dont think govt will take any action you know how lazy they are . And xperia u , p , s all have 1.62 w./kg SAR value , they have been here for quite some time now and no action of any sort has been taken. though it says 1st sept 2012 but practically they wont act before 1st sept 2013

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

it states dat-
The highest SAR value as reported to the authorities for this
phone model when tested for use by the ear is 1.28 W/kg*,
and when worn on the body is 0.74 W/kg* for speech and
1.37 W/kg* for data calls
(jump to page no2 of sub-document or if u r using cntl+F jump to 81st element)

But internal memory is low compared to tipo. Overall motorola fire xt530 is a good phone. Go for motorola instead of this...
