This phone is really well made! If you care about built quality and outstanding looks this is the phone for you.
I have both the mini pro and the xperia pro and I favored this phone for the following reasons :
1- built quality is far better than the xperia pro! The xperia pro feels like samsung phones which are cheap and gives you the worse plastic material.
2- This phone feels better in your hand, you just feel it's well built and the material is far better than the one used in the xperia pro.
3- This phone is faster! and the speakers produce a better and more crisp and clear sound than the xperia pro.
4- The camera button is way better than the xperia pro button, it's easy to click, unlike the xperia pro your hands shake a little bit when taking a picture.
5- I found the 4 corner UI( user interface) very useful and practical to use, in fact I believe it's one of the best you could get on an android phone today. It really makes things so much easier! Imagine you have access to 16 of your favorite apps in one screen, it's even better than using widgets and scrolling between the screens to get what you want. Here everything is in one easy place to access, brilliant UI from SE really.
Xperia pro advantages over the mini pro :
1- The screen is bigger and brighter.
2- Better battery life.
3- the keyboard has more space, although the clicky feeling makes it feel cheap.
4- The volume buttons are more comfortable to press, I found the volume buttons of the mini pro very annoying, now I use my nails to press them.
5- The camera of the xperia pro is one of the best cameras I used till date! Very great camera indeed.
Hope this helps you guys who are confused whether to get this phone or the Xperia pro.
PS: I'm selling my xperia pro, because the mini pro is enough for me for now.
Have a good day :)
I'm a fan of smartphones, esp SE and Nokia. After changing many types of them, found out that 1 thing matter to me.. it dont have to be perfect in any kind of performance to make me love it, as long as it suits my needs.. Right now Im using 4 phones: 1. Xperia Arc - suits my needs in watching videos or photos, coz it has big screen and still fit in my pocket, 2. Nokia N8 - has speed dial (androids dont have it.. or do they?), and its symbian O.S suits my needs at working, 3. Nokia N97 - Old phones, but for some reason, I still love it, 4. Xperia MiniPro - I've just bought it. Small, simple, love it to use when chating or callin w/ my grlfriends.. :) .... There's no such a thing that called the flawless technology and performnce. U want it all in a full package?? Then buy them all..! (Or maybe just some of them, like I did.. Cost u some extra budget, but less headache..!)
Please do not comment un necessary things that u don know,Sony Bravia Engine is a specialty of the Display which can be turned On or OFF Using software,i already gone through the same and i found a good clarity using the same pic ...The bravia engine clarity will feel only when corresponding type of pics or videos is there.Kindly note all the SE fans that the battery capacity is depend upon the Phone design and not in general requirement and please do not try to put higher grade battery like 1500mAH instead of 1200 mat cause damage to ur mob while charging because the charging current is very low that may cause the battery too week or the handset may try to charge it in high charging current may cause ur handset damage.
Hmmm.., so funny wen someone use diff names but same IP, n den claim dey try their frnds fon n its bad, stupid fon, dun buy dis fon n bla bla bla..n all of sudden claims himself got da fon...funny isnt it?
I think people are lying about the battery lasting 6 hours or so.Ofcourse if you are constantly using a device it will run out of juice.If they have ever used a laptop they should know that there is a big difference in battery life when using any device constantly under heavy load and light usage/standby!!! If someone can test the video playback time of the device,that would be a better comparison against other phones e.g.iphone4 etc and a real indicator of how 'Bad' this phones battery life is.PS I dont know of any phone with eternal battey life,so please get over this lame complaining.
Bought this 2 days ago, was impressed with its bright screen. No problem even in direct sunlight. Keyboard and touch screen is much better than previous X10 mini pro
