AnonD-10605, 06 Oct 2011Hi guys!
i wont suggest anyone this phone. Its a piece of crap. Thats what came in mind... more4) songs are nice to listen???Is this a criticism? Doesn't sound like it though.
5) the build quality is much better than the galaxy ace, fit, etc. The finish is superb, and screen is awesome.
The phone is very good for its price, but the problems you are facing are probably faced by a lot of other mini users.
i wont suggest anyone this phone. Its a piece of crap. Thats what came in mind after using it for a month.
1. The touch sensitive back key and the menu keys are functioning on their own.
2. The phone got heated up on tethering. At that time the touch problem (as above) is more. I need to remove the battery.
3.while trying to attend call from pocket, the call cuts by itself. Sometimes the touch becomes non responsive.
4.songs are nice to listen
5.the phone is cheap. So the quality is poor.
6.I never expected it from sony.
if these phone have such a problem, i think i should go to wait for se live with walkman. even though it does't have bravia engine compared to this one, thats ok with me.. considering that im a music lover...
Sony Ericsson xperia mini is an amazing phone i have ever used it is so fast and the display is awesome and now my phone is 1month old and has no problem at all.it is my dream mobile. Thank you Sony

T... moreyeah well i too hav a sennheisser cx 300....but then....its good to hav a collection of nice headphones....nd by what i've seen in reviews.....the livesound headphones r really good.....nd well...the ray nd mini and for that matter...even arc or neo.....they all might hav the same hardware....but no where has been the declaration of the audio chip used...they might be different...in different phones that is......moreover....nowdays....within the same phone companies put different audio chips.....for eg....a large number of galaxy s2's hav come with yamaha DAC....nd few also have come with the Wolfson DACs.....nd nowhere u'll find the DAC name specified anywhere....well whatever u said might also be true...that they might hav got a defective piece.....but still.....the ray also doesn't hav a flsh...its got video light which has to be turned on maually.....so i guess its a bit of a turn off too.....:(...nyways....i guess u r right tht it all boils down to one single thing....nd tht is ur own preference........
AnonD-13718, 05 Oct 2011yeah well ray wud hav been a gud deal if theyy had included the live hi fi sound headset inbox... moreIf you want good headphones for listening to music, get a good set of sennheiser headphones. The headset included in the retail package of any mobile phone is a very low quality one. So I couldn't care less for the livesound or whatever, and I would advise anyone else to not care too. Like I said, the choice between the neo and the ray is upto you- If you don't particularly want a small phone (personally, I prefer a small one) and can make do with a weaker camera, go for the neo-its not bad by any means. If you want a better camera, and smaller dimensions, get the ray. And the audio quality as given in GSMarena is probably a mistake. From all the specs, you can see that the mini and the ray use the exact same audio chip. So, the distortion while using headphones should be the same in both. Maybe they just got a defective piece, or it was an error with their instruments. These things are just mere tidbits anyway: if you want music quality, get a good pair of headphones: I know because I too have used SE walkman headphones a long time ago, and when I moved to my Sennheiser MX-760, the difference was unbelievable. I also use a HD-210 headphones, but the mini can't drive them as well as the iPod Touch can.
[deleted post]yeah well ray wud hav been a gud deal if theyy had included the live hi fi sound headset inbox....as in UK...but we aren't fortunate enough here in india to get it inbox.....:(....so....i'd rather go with the neo v for the screen size.......besides.....on the xperia ray review on gsmarena.....its audio output hasn't been all that well appreciated...particularly with headphones...with volume dropping down to a large extent nd stuff....so i guess it wud be wise to hav a look at the neo v review nd then decide......
Today I just bought my SE Mini. Haven't tested it throughly but I'm praying to cellphone gods that my chubby little handset be spared from the problems discussed here.
AnonD-7027, 05 Oct 2011i doubt its a software problem..but hopefully it is, so that se can fix it asap.. If that portion of your touchscreen never works (for eg, you cannot unlock your phone ever, or any icon in that region does not work), then it is a hardware problem. But if that problem only persists when you get a call, then it is a firmware problem.
AnonD-24605, 05 Oct 2011Hey Guys!! I have one more doubt!!! Some of them mentioned abt Flickering problem.. becoz of s... moreI have repeated this multiple times: The flickering thing is barely noticeable. Don't listen to people who say to hold it at an angle of 135 degrees or whatever. Whenever your finger will hover over the light sensor, the display will become a little darker, and as soon as your finger is no longer over the sensor, the screen will become a little brighter. This is because there is no setting in the phone to stop automatic backlight adjustment. There is no severe flickering problem whatsoever. Whoever says otherwise does not really have the phone, and is probably another sammy fanboy. You will barely realise its there, and even if you do, its so faint that you won't bother.
