I just bought this phone couple of days ago...I must say it feels awesome. I just couldn't find anything that's wrong with the phone except the little noise while recording the video. But that noise is very low, u can hardly hear it if u r not paying attention. The mobile Bravia engine is superb. As per the battery life I'm quite satisfied with it. I surfed the net for 3 hrs straight and also made calls for 30 mins and listened to music for half an hour as well. Amazingly, the battery still had 39% charge..I don't think one could ask for more..There's no Exmor R but the camera is good enough. I just love this monster device disguised in such a small package..Kudos to Sony Ericsson..
Kiran, 12 Aug 2011Can we expect OS update (Like.. Android 2.4) for this phone? And, most of the mini pro users ... moreI think yes we can get update 2.4.This mobile has 8x zoom best ever.No idea about the noise as i dont own it yet.

Anonymous, 12 Aug 2011I would guess the noise come from the screen. Does it still making noise when the screen is black ?I thought that too at first, but the noise is there even when I call someone and phone's sensor puts screen on power saving, so I still think it has something to do with the battery or this phone has some other power related issue.
Looks like people don't read text so well, so here's simple info about the hole thing:
1: Phone has strange noise ALWAYS when screen is on (put it near your ear to hear)
2: That noise is audible even when screen is off IF you make a phone call. (makes calling quality terrible)
When taking some videos with the phone, that noise's volume multiplys on that video = bad volume on your home videos...

BooM, 12 Aug 2011Regarding the static noise pb, there is a golden rule i always follow: never buy the first bat... moreExcellent rule. There are a lot who can buy a phone 10x over and not feel a pinch. Better to learn from their mistakes before spending my lifetime savings on one. Lol.

this phone is one of the best phone in sony i am feel good to using this phone
i'm using aircel sim card and it says xperia mini pro does not support ota settings, what should i do pls help....
I still think that the background noise is coming from the battery. Like I said before, I sent my phone back to the store where I bought it. I gave them my youtube video with that noise audible and they quickly answered to me and told me to send my phone back to them and they will send me a new one. I propably get this new one next week, so I will post how things come out. :)
But it looks like almost all test videos in youtube has that noise but I think not as loud as on my phone. If this thing is coused by the battery I think it is little dangerous be using a battery that makes that loud of a noise, especially mobile phone battery.
I emaild Sony Ericsson about this problem and hopefully they will answer to me soon.
One thing is sure, they have to fix this problem, because it makes this phone's calling quality one of the worst and this kind of low quality is not acceptable in 2011 and especially from a premium manifacturers Android phone.
Regarding the static noise pb, there is a golden rule i always follow: never buy the first batch of a new phone, wait and let the early buyers discover the bugs...Too bad for them.
I brought this phone 4 days back in India for 15,300/.
Love this phone. Its little heavy and screen size is small, but qwerty keyboard and amazingly fast speed in such low prize will overpower that. lot of 3d games are available for this little beast also so I am enjoy it.
