The Mini is a 100x better than the W8, and the sound quality in the Mini is better than the W8 (the mini uses the same audio chip as the Xperia Arc, check out the audio quality specs in the GSMArena review, you'll see that the specs of the Mini and the Xperia Arc are almost the same). Also, the Mini sounds almost as good as the N5800 through good sennheiser earphones.

I installed PowerAMP in it and set a customised preset for SuperBass and Treble and it sounds killer. The sound is not louder than nokia xpress music phones in loudspeaker and earphones but the quality can beat most of the nokia or samsung phones of the same range. Hope this helps!!
mighty, 16 Sep 2011hi sir, can i ask u somethin'? what kind of update did you have you done to your mini? is it i... moreIts not an android update. Its like a phone update. When I connected my phone to the PC, it said 'An update for your phone is available.' and I updated the phone. Now the battery seems to be lasting for a longer time. Just a bit. I charged my phone in the morning to 100%(at 12pm) and now the battery is at 77% with 2 hrs of music playback and continous messaging and Live wallpaper(the time now is 11pm here. Not used the internet at all. A few phone calls as well for around 15 mins. Its working great. Very fluid and smooth. Installed a few HD games as well. Works awesome without any lags at all. Go ahead and buy it if its under your budget.
will d battry last for 14 hrs under following condition
2 hrs music play , 15 min hd gaming , 15 min e book reading, 15 min internet (2g,edge),10 min call,15 pics ,..gps,wifi off during this period....if it can i am sure to buy this mini monster
I need very good quality sound in earphones & gud net surfing..i hv 5800 & it sounds gud wd other earphne..so shd i go wid mini or wait for live walkman?

Saad, 16 Sep 2011Sid is absolutely right about the mini and the Ace. I got mini day before yesterday and update... moreThanks for that, but all I did was tell the truth. Seriously, everyone looking for an android phone in 10-15K should go for the mini: most of you will probably be using the Corby, Star, N5800 or N5233, or maybe the 5310 XM or whatever: My point is that the screen size will not bother you. The 3.5 screen on my iPod is actually harder to hold and use than my Mini. This phone is fast and fluid, and at the same time looks very nice: All this at a price lower than the Ace, which I'm amazed sold so many units, given its terribly outdated innards (Its the same processor as the Galaxy Pop, or the Optimus one, only overclocked). Anyone looking to buy an android, this is the phone to start with.

I got mini day before yesterday and updated it last night. It works like a charm. You will only have an issue with the battery when you are using too much internet on it. If you dont use the internet and even play games for 2 hours, the battery will not even drop below 40% at the end of the day. Trust me, I am using it. And after the update, I think the battery performance has even increased a bit. I will be testing the battery with a Live wallpaper ON for the entire day and see how it works. Performance and Gaming is SuperFluid. No doubt about it. Thanks to Sid's advice. Otherwise even I was planning to buy the Ace. When I heard it from Sid and saw Ace, it was rubbish with regards to performance. Go for mini if you want to go for Ace....Cheers!!
can he play youtube vedios without 3g and wifi connection only 2g connection
AnonD-22160, 16 Sep 2011but xperia mini luks so bulky as it 16mm thick and besides that ACE is only 11.5mm. and if v t... moreThe 1200mah capacity battery of SE Mini is no less capable than 1350mah of Galaxy Ace.
This is due to the fact that CPU used in Ace is based on Older 65nm technology, whereas in SE Mini it is based on latest 45nm technology which is a lot more power efficient due to smaller size.
And when your CPU consumes less energy, it makes a lot of difference.
The screen of SE Mini should also consume less energy than ace's screen as it is smaller.
Ace is nowhere close to SE mini in Specs & Performance ,comparing the Price.
SE Mini is much much better.
Superb fast performance and flawless transitions for the UI. Perfectly small but terrible^^
AnonD-22160, 16 Sep 2011but xperia mini luks so bulky as it 16mm thick and besides that ACE is only 11.5mm. and if v t... moreOK. Let me clear the battery issue. I occasionally use internet, about 1 hr a day, about 30 mins of calls, couple of texts and I charge my phone every other night (when battery drops to about 15%). So, the battery is really not an issue. If you use the internet daily, for hours and hours, then having adobe flash on your phone is essential to get a computer-ish feel. So the Xperia wins there. The phone looks bulky in pictures and in specs, but in the hand, it is actually very tiny (smaller than the Corby). So the thickness won't bother you at all. Trust me, this was my main concern, but when I saw the dummy piece of the xperia mini pro, it really didn't feel bulky, or thick, or badly designed. It felt good, easy to hold, and it slipped into my pocket easily. When I saw the actual phone, I fell in love with it-It looks and feels that good: not bulky at all. Rather it appears very tiny, very petite, and it is much, much faster than the Ace. Apps run smooth as butter, menus scroll fast, and the screen is very good: probably 5 times better than the Ace screen, even though it is smaller. The Bravia display is actually better than their Bravia TVs! The battery is really not a problem: If you can afford an Xperia Mini, I'm pretty sure you live in an area with water and electricity, and if you have a plug point at home, just plug it in at night. The Ace is thinner, and looks very close to an iPhone: very close dimensions, but the Xperia feels better to hold, and to handle. If you wear very tight jeans, it might be a problem to put it in your pocket, but otherwise, it is not a problem. Also, just so you know, the Xperia has a 1 Ghz Snapdragon processor (this is a ARM v7 processor), with a Adreno 205 GPU, but the ace has a 800 MHz ARM v6 processor, which is less than 50% as powerful as the Mini. If you want to spend 13K on the Ace, which will not get an ICS update, and has a very weak processor, its your choice, but I would advise against it. Had it been priced at around 8.5-9K, it would have been a very good choice, but for 13K, the Ace is overpriced for what it offers.
