Elango YK, 29 Aug 2011Hi Krish, Thx for ur immediate resonse. I prefered White cos i doubted that whether black loo... moreoh fine. Well its simple to test. After opening the box just set the volume in mid range and enable the xloud feature. you can notice the rise in volume and when you disable xloud the volume will be low but when you set the volume to maximum and on enabling and disabling the xloud feature you wont notice much of difference but the volume will be good only. And sometimes there might a voice break problem while talking on the phone, that is you will be able to hear what the person is speaking to you but he wont be able to hear you properly and the listener might here a break in your voice. so check that out also and last but not the least the video recording. try recording in a silent place and if you are able to hear any insect like sound(keep the phone close to your ear so you can notice if the sound is there or not) while recording or playing it in your cell or Pc then there is a problem. After purchase of the mobile if you feel that there is any problem just go and check it out in Sony Ericson service centre.
Likvit, 29 Aug 2011Update to my status: As I said before, my second phone was totally silent, but after few days ... moreHi LikVit,
Thnx! for sharing your experience in lucid way, and alerting all of us.
I feel sad for the fact that 2nd piece of SE XPERIA MINI PRO is also generating noise :(
Infact, after your comment that the 2nd phone is OK, I was planning to buy MiniPro
In GSMArena Review also, U can see "•Doubtful video recording quality" in the "Main disadvantages"!
AnonD-1267, 30 Aug 2011You can play games via the keyboard, but that would depend on weather that game has the option... moredo you have motion gaming on Xperia mini pro ??
What about strange noise everyone is talking ??
AnonD-1267, 30 Aug 2011You can play games via the keyboard, but that would depend on weather that game has the option... moreOh, a real expert!;)
And this fact didn't keep you from choosing the standard Mini? Can you use your Mini in similar way?
I expect that later even Xperia Play games might be ported to the Pro, but I'm not sure about the Mini due to the hardware...
Is the battery life is perceivably shorter (according to the specs) compared to the Mini Pro?
Don't you miss the QWERTY?
I'm thinking along the lines you suggested (not risking the solution coming or not) and replacing the Pro with the Mini... So I'd really appreciate your opinion based on your experiences, because you always provided very admirable comments :)
(BTW, any contact with phones4u (you know why)?;))
AnonD-19593, 29 Aug 2011I'm also interested in this! Any hardcore gamers? ;)You can play games via the keyboard, but that would depend on weather that game has the options to allow that.
For example. I use psx4droid. For those of you who don't know, is a playstation program that allows you to run playstation emulated games. It has the option to asign different keys on the keyboard to the controls you want to use.
So in answer to you r question it's a yes.
Is it possible to play games on this phone with physical keyboard, or playing on the screen is only way? Thanks for help
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2011You can install java emulator for android to run java applications or convert .jar files to .a... moreinstall it where??
in phone or install in pc then convert it to .apk???
....because i have download a java emulator from rapidshare but it does not instslling in my phone....error
can u send a link to download java emulator....plz
Yes, u may remove directories which contain user guide in languages that u dont understand. If u dont understand french, italy, or poland etc u can just delete sub folders fr, it and pl from .emanual directory.
Update to my status: As I said before, my second phone was totally silent, but after few days of usage the noise has come back! :D So now I can hear it again when phone is near ear, not as loud as first, but still audible. Another strange thing is that it keeps buzzing even if the screen is off.
So I can not offically confirm that Sony-Ericsson has totally screw up this model. :D
Now I have to think what to do next... Maybe I ask tomorrow if I can return this second phone and get my money back.
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2011The inbuilt storage is 400MB only, though additional storage can be added with a microSD card.... morethey put into memory card:
- user guide (all languages available) around 580 Mb
- PC companion 187 Mb
- Xperia mini pro demo and tutorial videos (7 versions/ languages) 160 Mb
- etc etc
The inbuilt storage is 400MB only, though additional storage can be added with a microSD card. The phone ships with a 2GB memory card, which has only 750MB of free space.
- what does this mean ?
Elango YK, 29 Aug 2011Hi Krish,
Thx for ur immediate resonse. I prefered White cos i doubted that whether black loo... moreOh, I still have my K750i, which works flawlessly, while we try to find out the solution to this noise problem... so I understand what you want :)
Two tests: First everyone adviced to shoot a 10-15s video (only memcard is needed, which is in the phone), and play back (even on device) on a higher volume - an insect-like noise can be heard!
Later it turned out that the problem is more general, read this (easier 2nd test included ;)):
Next, there are some with the xLoud problem, play some ringtone, and test if xLoud makes the phone louder, or not...
I'd advice black, as it's back is similar to rubber, while white is slippery, you decide it's fashion or functionality;) - but profoundly tested.

Thx for ur immediate resonse. I prefered White cos i doubted that whether black looks good or not and i wanna expose the difference bw X10 mini pro & XMP so choosing white could be better one i thought. Anyway as u hav suggessted XMP is in demand in our city. Yesterday only i enquired in univercell & poorvika and got out of stock as result.
Could you clarify me one thing whether our XMP can work fast & efficient with 32GB memory card with full content.
Last but not least give me some guidelines to check the mobile for faults while buying. I hope this could be better rather than finding after getting home. Cos im changin my mobile after 4.5 years from SE k750i to SE XMP so i wanna buy a clean mobile without any faults.
AnonD-19264, 29 Aug 2011I bought it from univercell. the Xperia mini pro is available in black only in our city. white... moreDear Krish,
PLEASE share with us the MANUFACTURING DATE: 11WXX (you can find it under the battery; XX= a 2-digit number)
Elango YK, 29 Aug 2011Hi Krish, Im also in Chennai. I just want to know the following details, 1. Where do u bough... moreI bought it from univercell. the Xperia mini pro is available in black only in our city. white colour is not available at present. when i had the problem with my first one, i went to univercell and told the problem. They told everything is alright but they dont know anything and so i decided to go to sony ericson service centre and told them the problem and they checked it and it was a fault and i was right:) they issued a certficate for replacement of mobile and i took that sheet to univercell and got my new one:) it was funny to see the look on their faces:). Man can i ask you a thing? why would you go for a white colour xperia mini pro. Black itself good only. the xperia mini pro is fast moving in our city:) getting the black one itself is very difficult cause of high demand for it and what they say is stock has to come:( Anyway its your wish you can buy black or white(if white is available). If you think anything is wrong with the mobile after purchase go directly to sony ericson service centre and check it out.
