I'm already satify with this phone right now.. I love my Xperia Mini (: I RECOMMEND you this phone (:
Rikki, 15 Feb 2013Wanna buy this phone,but I have heard a lot of problem such(over heat,battery life,automatic r... moreI would NOT strongly recommend this phone to anybody because the specs are somewhat outdated. For example, it suffers from low internal memory (less than 400MB user available) especially if you use many applications. Android apps are constantly updated which make the internal memory lower and lower. Why don't have a look at the xperia 'go' or 'sola' or some other new phones? In both these, you get 4-5 GB internal memory and both have dual core processor, ics runs better on dual cores.
I suggest you make your decision based on the design of this phone; that is if you love to have a 'mini' smart phone. Looking from that aspect I say this is (or was) a masterpiece by SE. It is an excellent performer, has the bravia engine and much more. But everything becomes old and outdated.
The overheating issue is present in some batches of phones, the touch buttons starts misbehaving as the phone gets heated; but definitely there is a fix for this at sony service. And about the battery life, it is bad. For a heavy user, the battery will not last till the end of the day. 4-5 hrs of music is ok, but if you do 3hrs internet, the battery will be an issue. But you can use a spare battery and an external charger to solve this.
Wanna buy this phone,but I have heard a lot of problem such(over heat,battery life,automatic response without touching) Just tell me that it will good for me cause I just wanna listen 4-5 hour music and 2-3 hour on internet DAILY.I will owe you-
AnonD-93167, 13 Feb 2013Wow! It's a good phone :D trust me, good battery life and no lags! very responsive touch scree... moreYes,it is. My Xperia mini is running on Gingerbread (2.3.4)and rooted. It's fast, but when we have many application that need running on the background, it will lag several. And in my opinion, Gingerbread running in Xperia mini is faser that Ice Cream Sandwich.

bapi, 07 Feb 2013Is it true that after upgrading to ICS battery overheating problem is solvedI don't think it will solve the problem. I got overheat issue too, I update it to ICS and flash it to Gingerbread, it still got problem. So, I rooted my Xperia mini and install Gscript Lite.
sandeep, 24 Jan 2013upgrade to ICS ANDROID 4.0.1 , then all over heating and vibration problems will gets resolved Is it true that after upgrading to ICS battery overheating problem is solved
INExperia, 06 Feb 2013Guys need a help, does this Xperia mini bring so much technical problems??? Is it more appropr... moreNot all user face the problem I think. My Xperia mini got Back and Menu button error (execute itself like, I tap Settings, it back again, I scroll here, it back again). I found this problem on Google, it was said as overheating problem. This problem can be solved by rooting the smartphone and install Gscript Lite (find touchpanel.sh file on Google).
Xperia mini pro has video call camera and its internal memory is 400 MB better that Xperia mini. The common lack of slide phone /smarphone I think is the flexible cable.
