> In reply to rish- @ 2012-09-13 22:55 from U@5B - click to readsimply if the sar value is true , to be honest it is too dangerous and may be banned in some countries! earphones quality of course won't match walkman in live with walkman, however it was good ( not awesome but simply good) i recommend you then to check miro or xperia mini as mini is cheaper than live with walkman but suffers from 3 inches screen and mini did not has ics fix made for xperia ray, live with walkman and neo v till now! or simply go for htc explorer but also to be honest as a bro i do not recommend because it is too slow and even symbian use 680mhz, 600 mhz will cause some lags and explorer has no ics!

Bro have you really listened to the sound in tipo with sony headphones . I guess not . Because on sony support forum owners of lww have posted that sony tipo sucks in terms of earphone quality. Also SAR value is mentioned on uk tipo pdf as 1.62w/kg. Your honest review will be appreciated .

( to others like make.beleive, i am not trolling just advicing!)

Maybe you are right . But 3.5mm is universal and the audio quality i think was best it could offer i think. But still if angel007 can comment on earphone music quality it would be great. And remember xloud does not work on earphones

Phone comes with android v4.0.4 on ST21i, that RAM is bigger than specified is maybe due to Android4 using either some disk page file or that device actually has more RAM...

he sound quality in speaker phones is exceptionally great , loud and clear while in the earphones it is exceptionally low and disgusting.
and wait there's more you need to know about tipo before you buy it .
1) Do you know that xperia tipo has SAR value of 1.62 /kg . the most harmfull radiating mobile in india as goverment restricts mobiles to 1.6/kg

guys as you know i booked my xperia tipo on hs18 for 7999 . today i went to sony xperia store to have alive demo .
1) the touch is very responsive and smooth unlike some reviews said earlier.
2) the phone looked good and the voice in the speakerphone was exceptionally loud , clear and great.
I took my headphones with me which are of very high quality with loud voice in earphones to check how the voice quality it actually is ,.
and when i plugged in my earphones i felt like trashing this mobile . my old nokia n73 and my 4000 rs samsung champ have twice the volume than that came out of tipo. and that too when the showroom was empty. sorry guys it might not affect you but this was the deal breaker for me as i listen music mostly on my phone.you wont hear a thing if you are in crowded place . really pathetic music quality in earphones.
To be continued...
