I´ve had my Xperia mini pro for two days and I´m very satisfied! I can confirm the background noise on films but I don´t find it as disturbing as some others seem to do…
I´ve been using the X10 mini pro and this definitely feels like an upgrade. This phone is noticeably faster than its predecessor which I find important. But the slow starting of the camera is still there and still as annoying!
A lot of small changes in the right places have been made to the programing. This combined with Android 2.3 makes for a happy experience!
The new screen looks very crisp and good, seizing it up almost makes up for the new versions increased volume. Almost, when it comes to cellular phones a small size is one of my top priorities… I find the screen precision good and the feel similar to the X10 mini.
Battery performance has been slightly improved according to the specifications but I can´t judge so far.
The layout and material in the keyboard (pro version) has changed. The new material is more rubbery and feels a bit better than the previous. I have quite large thumbs and I lose a bit of feeling when pressing keys at the topmost row of keys. This is a bit annoying but I´m hoping that I will get used to it with time.
In conclusion I would recommend this phone to every one using the X10 mini models. This is an upgrade! And to everyone who, like me, value the small size but still wants a full-fledged smartphone.
Super Happy with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro. Simply fantastic. Cannot find a feature missing and the price is awesome
That background noise isn't just on videos, it is audible always when the screen is on. If screen goes on power saving the noise dissappears. That noise goes away also if the phone is connected to it's charger. I think it is the battery that is making this noise. Making calls with that noise on background is very disturbing... I sent my phone back to store and they are sending me new one. But I'm afraid that new one will have this same problem.
Seems like the only problem with this phone is the background noise in video recording.. I'll wait to see if it can be fixed or not, but I'll buy it anyways ! Today I got my hands on it at the store, it's tiny and sweet.. :)
Billy, 11 Aug 2011You are right, i just checked many Youtube videos taken with the new mini Pro, and all of them... moreAnd if the static noise is there all the time even when having phone conversation it is inacceptable. I will wait a bit to be sure before buying the phone....
Likvit, 11 Aug 2011Looks like some other people have the same background noise issue...
http://www.youtube.com... moreYou are right, i just checked many Youtube videos taken with the new mini Pro, and all of them have definitely a background fizzling noise, like static noise...Strange. Hope it is just a software issue.
I want to buy the Mini, not the Pro, but i guess the pb will be the same. Time for SE to go back to work.
