When u first time look there it will seem to be hard. but after reading thoroughly u will know how easy to install custom rom. All u need to read those tutorial about 1.rooting, 2unlocking, 3. CWM recovery loading. 4.Flashing kernel and custom os
etc .Read many times. Don't do anything first, just read. definitly it will take some time to understand. It is not possible to teach everything about hacking xperia mini by mailing or simply giving simple instruction in here. You have to try it personaly.

I also love my phone but i've reached the limit of its internal memory so everything is slowing down. You can reach me by email: ir.b.chan@gmail thanks!
i've been using it in months and i had experienced a repeating problem on my phone... continuous rebooting..
i have sony ericson sk17i but i have a problem on it.. sometimes... my pictures in my sd card cant display in gallery... whats the problem? and what should i do? thank you :)
I hv been using this phone for last 3yrs. a fantastic set by sony. I have loaded xtream bean jb 4.1.2 custom rom from xda website. I have installed 150+ apps in this mobile generally having 250+mb free ram. all hd games work well. All these r happening because i have rooted and unlocked the system and installed link2sd from playstore, with it i have installed all downloaded apps in 2gb external partition in my 32gb memory card except system apps. I have 200mb phone memory free and it is running all apps lagfree and smooth with nova launcher. camera and video quality are outstanding by mobile standard. these days you will have more features at less price in new phones, but xperia mini will always be a great handset for me. after 3 yrs of extensive use still i am having full 1day battery back up with my custom jb os. I think i can still use this mobile for another 2yrs. thanks for reading this short review with my xperiences about this mobile.
I have been using xperia mini for more then 3 years... i like them so much that i can buy to myself a new phone. and it has never been on servis
Using this phone for the last two years.
Pros: Handy, mini, Upgradable to andorid ICS, 5 mp cam which is good with flash.
Cons: 512 ram and only 320 mb storage space for apps installation. so cannot update apps.
hd video recording is good and excellant. compared to NOKIA Asha 311 camera is not as good as Asha 311 in the natural light.
this is a good one to use and is handy.
Yeah still works,this small droid phone along with CyanogenMod 4.4.2 and with that Sony Ericsson insignia... Awesome !
im using this phone since 2 years. no issues. working fine
great phne in sony ericsn
but littlebit problem of battery
My phone is Xperia mini ST15i, I updated my phone and after that I don't have Tami language(Indian language) option in it. So kindly please tell me how can I get that language. It means to me so much.

gingerbread compresses your picture files to less than 1MB. With ICS, you get more info per pixel.
and no battery issues.
You'll also be able to install and play a wide range of games because some games require ICS.
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2013Yes its obviously a limitation. Its a good phone but for gaming? No, not really. You will soon... moreIs it worth if i buy xperia mini ini 2014?
I have xperia P, i want to buy it just for my back up phone :(
robert, 18 May 2014thanks, im hoping for sony to release a 4" w/ 8-13MP at midrange specs.Rather rare, many Xperia series give higher screen, like Xperia M2.
