I have been using this phone from the past 11 months, and I should tell this, this phone has met my expectations..!!!
TIPO ROCKS.!!!

Even though the specs are limited, it works just fine and I love it.

And all those who say that this phone lags a lot or it is too slow, here is the solution,
Download an app called "Clean Master" through Google Play Store, and for every two hours or when ever you are free, just free the memory, it will boost your phone and performance will improve..

Trust me, it will work.
Cheers.. :)

I used this phone for 1 year and 5 months.
I have appreciated the stability and speed of this phone in all my past reviews. But my tipo's behavior changed my mind.

My tipo never fell from my hands, and I always handled it with utmost care. But I am totally shocked how its motherboard stopped working yesterday after 1 year and 5 months of usage

I went to Sony Center and they told me that the mother board has been destroyed..and that repair cost is 5000 o____O That's more than half the price of this phone


My dad's Xperia Ion's 12 MP camera also started clicking blurred low resolution pictures, just after 6 months of usage.

My sister's Xperia J's camera had to be replaced too for the same reason.

Never buying Sony phones again

I have used this phone for over a year, and it works just fine. My hesitation about an ICS shouldn't be used in 800 MHz processor is not proven in this phone. The most important thing is the battery - it is just great, I can use this phone for almost 2 days without charging. Good phone with an affordable price.

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.
