Can somebody please help me. Newbie here. After seeing this I just had to buy 1 of these. Its on android firmware 2.1.
There are guides to get it to 2.2 so playstore will work but the webpages are old and the links are dead
Also 4.1 with bugs and cyg
Also do I have to unlock bootlocker first? Thanks
I have a X10 Xperia but I have been told that Sony does not provide a chip for it anymore.
Is this true or is it possible to get a new ship for this marvelous phone?
If positive where can I get it?
Thanks for your attention
Ah really a trip to nostalgic moment for me.
Bough Xperia Mini with my savings back then. Really happy with how small it is, people always asking everytime I pulled it. I was using it until 2013 or something but shit happened and I sold the Mini to buy some food. Still sad about it.
It was an amazing phone, especially X10 Mini Pro with that little tiny practical keyboard.
I remember those days that I had X10 and my brother had X10 Mini Pro. Really missed Sony designs their timescape interface. Wish Sony makes its phones global available again. Albeit with much smaller bezels...

4G (LTE) is fine, you see it on smart watches and KaiOS phones - which seem to have about the same CPU and RAM and GPU specs as smart watches!
Software is the hard part hence why KaiOS is not very good. User interface is a problem too, phones 5 inches and bigger got popular because the virtual keyboard gets more usable or easy to use.
This one is funny though, I never knew virtual keypad is a thing.

Anonymous, 22 Jun 2020I would definitly buy it if release with up to date config. Shame there is tons of models and ... moreMe too. I'm making do with an Xperia XZ1. The screen is much bigger than I need and the memory is much smaller than I need but there is nothing on the market to replace it with (I'd happily pay $1,000 which covers most phones on the market except they're all the size of tablets). I miss my first smart phone - a Blackberry Pearl 9100. As big as any phone needs to be - although a full face touch screen instead of the screen plus keyboard would have been an improvement.
Now if this phone was updated with a improved camera more ram bigger battery and mem would still be kickass phone like it use to be back in the day
New PALM smartphone was this cute tiny smartphone. Too bad it was so expensive. Otherwise a lot of people would buy it just because it's so tiny and cute.
The only way a compact phone will be launched now is if theres a new invention in battery. With the whole 4g and even 5g and processors needing a lot of battery juice, it's not possible for anyone to make a compact phone using Li ion batteries.
It can be made if people are ready to go for 3g and a somewhat slower processor which may not play all the gaming apps of nowadays and a lower resolution camera with decent sensors( which is all that's required in cam actually)
I would definitly buy it if release with up to date config. Shame there is tons of models and no small screens.
My first ever android device. Then went on learning about flashing, tweaking custom rom for this phone. One day I use it to took a pic of a monkey then the monkey grabbed it then slammed it on the cement floor. LMAO My phone started to turning off randomly after that. RIP
i love this phone. I love it's design and compact. I have moved to other mobile due to technology, memory and upgrades. But I still have this phone working good and using as secondary. It's awesome phone. I don't know how to upgrade it's hardware like RAM and processor. Let me know any ways for it. I love to use it.
2010 was the era of iPhone, and Blackberry was still relevant but on the decline. Nokia was still screwing around with Symbian, releasing the Nokia N8 in the same year.
Back then the Android world was still messy and quite frankly garbage. It wasn't until the following year in 2011 when Samsung released the critically acclaimed Galaxy S2... the phone which propelled Samsung to be the Android phone giant you see today.
Samsung also has its own problems, since then it has hits and misses: the software is much better now than the atrocious Touchwiz, although bloat still exists and I don't like how Samsung had collaborated with Microsoft (Office and Onedrive). Samsung has also made some baffling decisions: Exynos and Bixby, which are inferior products compared to Snapdragon and Google Assistant.
There was also the infamous exploding Galaxy Note 7.
I still own my X10 mini and X10 mini Pro.
My X10 mini is still going strong and I still use it as an mp3 player to save the battery on my main mobile (S10e) .
It is small enough to hardly notice it in my pocket and the battery still lasts long enough for a couple of continuous days playing music.
I will be gutted when the battery eventually dies tbh.
I have hated the way mobiles have grown through the years and a so called mini phone nowadays has a screen size of around 5".
Bigger isn't always better imo.
