xperia has gps and for offline usage you can use locus free, find it at android market, for first use you still need internet conection to download map for your area. Or for your destination area. And you can save it for offline usage later. I have this phone, over all good phone but do not install any application that use working in the background because it will drain you battery quickly. Damn android because too much use power to stand by. Sony and ericsson always make good phone. But for os i hate this os.
Sameer, 15 Sep 2011Bt wat abt the android feature dat people lukin for?? Nokia has totally the market in this case :))I already said that "If you want a phone to play with, and have fun, and you want an ANDROID" you should get the mini. If you don't care about Android, the N8 should be a beautiful phone. Everything except for the OS are very good (Symbian Anna runs perfectly smooth on the N8's rather outdated internals). The only reason people go for phones like the mini, ace, etc is because of Android. Otherwise, for the same price, Nokia offers better build and features. If you do not need apps or games, and don't think Android is worth the fuss, then get the N8. If you want to experience Android, download apps, games, live wallpapers, professional software, etc, go for the mini.

AnonD-22160, 14 Sep 2011Samsung galaxy ACE or Xperia Mini??? m totaly cnfusd,,plz tell me which one to buy???Except for the smaller screen, the mini destroys the Ace in everything: better build, much much faster chipset, etc. Unless you want to just watch movies on your screen (for which the bigger screen is essential), get the mini. Best phone in its class, in its price, and its design makes it very stylish.

2 hrs music play , 15 min hd gaming , 15 min e book reading, 15 min internet (2g,edge),15 pics,..gps,wifi off during this period.
I need loud & quality music through earphone & net surfing..i hv 5800 nw & it sounds gud bt with other earphone..does mini sounds bttr than 5800 or shd i wait fr live with walkman, hence it also has secondary camera(bt nt bravia engine)..whch 1 will b better fr me..xperia mini or live walkman..?
I thnk both cel hv same deep fb integration & xloud..does bravia engine matters a lot?..pls suggest..
I have few queries.
1) Will I get HSDPA speed (on 3G Network) when I connect my laptop via USB, because their website states "Modem - GSM dialup internet". Does GSM mean I will only get GSM speed and not HSDPA?
2) Will I get HSDPA speed when using as Wifi hotspot?
3) Someone said abt some limitation abt using Google account when internet on phone is connected via wifi router. What is it exactly about?
4) Further to pt 3) above is there any kind of "locking" of any feature?
5) Can I use it as Digicam for reasonable print quality photos?
Thanks in advance.
Hey Sid...I am getting the xperia mini tomm....So u support it completely right? I was confused between the mini and Ace and comparatively mini wins it all for me.....I saw lots of gameplay videos on youtube for mini and it seems the experience will be better for me than the Ace. Thanks for all your replies and posts for my questions. You are a champ brother...God Bless!!!
AnonD-22094, 14 Sep 2011Between this phone and a Nokia N8, what would you choose?If you want a feature phone, with the best features you can get, get the N8. Its basically a replacement for your camera, and has beautiful build quality. If you want a phone to play with, and have fun, and you want an android, the Mini is cheaper and faster, with a smaller screen which is just as good as the N8's amoled, but with a comparatively horrible camera. If you want to take photos 95% of the time, N8 is the one. If you are a casual user, Mini.
