I have been using this phone for a month and the Sony experience is superb. all those complaining are misplaced. the phone is very good for a budget phone. if you want a superior experience buy a better gadget.

My Tipo is superb for its price. Using it for over a year, it works just like when I first bought it. Those who say it's slow, probably they dont know how to use android.

There are hundreds of voice recorders available.

Well I have flashed acid audio mod, all kinds of walkmans. The bass response is good for an average user and for the price of the phone but I am a very demanding audiophile.


This phone has good sound qualiy with the JB Walkman port on xda.
All other walkman's have the sound reduce bug in tipo.(sound reduces itself after 5-6 seconds)

The stock music player is also good. But way too old.

I am using this phone till 7 month. Works smoothly all-time. I don't know who says that this phone get hangs! Sound is good. 800 MHz processor but work like 1 GHz. My gaming experience is awesome also. It can play asphalt 7 and 8, Real racing 2 and 4, GTA III and other casual games. Only camera isn't good. At last I can say worth buying.

Of course the device is not very fast, but in most cases fast enough. Slow with osmand navigation > 1.51.
Rooting was difficult to optain (locked phone), but worked finally.
SuperSU works;
link2SD works;
64 GBytes microSD works, it is today formatted with 16 GBytes FAT32 and 48 GBytes (relly about 44GBytes) ext4;

Got this locked phone new for less than 70 US$ in Mai 2013, for this price it is perfect.

very hopeless , it lags a lot !

the memory gets corrupted for no reason, phone works slow, as well as gets a network coverage for some service providers , in India , such as Idea, Airtel , Tata Docomo.

i will be Uploading the video of breaking my phone .

simply it's sucks. it's very slow and you cannot install more than 2 or 3 apps as it leads to hanging... it's waste of money and an insult to the customers
