After four months the thing went completely haywire, had to send it for repair. It's been gone for 32 days and they have no parts to fix it and no new models to replace it. Terrible customer support. They are sending me an Arc S instead which I will sell and buy another brand. No more Sony Ericsson for me.
@ katz after how many days you get your phone from s.e.service center?
im from philippines, i bought sony xperia mini about a week ago..ang its pretty damn good..i dont have the infamous overheating or capacitive buttons issue, but its battery is not that good,..
katz from the Philippines here. I have a friend who bought xperia 2 months ahead of me and was just released couple of months aftr the announcement. She had that overheating and key issues and had to go back to sony ericsson service center to get it calibrated. the key issue has already been taken care of, however, the overheating still reocurred. i just dont know how what she did and the overheating were minimized. her colleague bought xperia and they both have the same problem. i got mine from suncellular (wireless provider) and what i had is that key issue. that same calibration fix did it. i guess it's just a case to case basis. for me, so far so good an im lovin it. whenever somebody looks at my phone, they get envious because of a small and not too expensive phone has a lot of features. i recommend this phone to everyone!
not all xperia mini have heating issue! Stop making stupid comments! Theres a sony erics. Service center to fix it! Mine is 11w52 it works fine check yours! If your going to buy it make sure the production date is 11w52 so that the ratio you may get defect xperia is low! Im from ph. So far so good! Get rooted but dnt unlock bootloader TEAM SYMBIANIZE!

Grim, 28 May 20121.) Does this phone really have overheating problems? (as I read through some of the comments,... moreYes- I've got 2, both do it, one went back to SE for repair in Nov, just started reusing as other now back for repair with SE, it still does it. When the fone is ok, I think its the best availible at present, so I hope SE fix properly soon
