Been using this awesome thing for 4 months now and no major problems to date..However, there are two little things that bother me;the battery span and picture quality. The camera is not the best 5mp camera I've ever used. As an example, I used Vivaz Pro before and I dare to say that its camera snaps better quality pics than this little wonder.
But all and all, I am loving this phone as the pros outweigh the cons. The resolution, speed, look and feel. Plus, it can do the same things the more expensive HP can do.
The best phone ever in its category, certainly. I have no regret at all for choosing this over Galaxy Y or Ace. 4.5/5 stars!!
Sidenote: I am thinking of upgrading the software to ICS but after looking at all these negative comments about ICS on Xperia Mini Pro, I am holding that thought for now..Is it safe yet to upgrade?

I just use this phone about 4 month, and now i get notification from sony to update system to 4.1.B or android jelly bean. I just want to know, whether this jelly bean stable for xperia mini pro
chetan, 21 Oct 2012How to make 3g carrier based video call from this phone?i am not referring to voip based calls.You can't! And you can blame Google - not Sony for not providing native support to 3G video calling on android frameworks
Good day! My phone is already notifying me about the new ICS update (the bugfix one) and it says I need PC companion but Sony said you only need PC companion when your still in Gingerbread. I'm already in ICS and the bugfix update is only 0.1MB. Anyone here who already updated their mini pro to .587 or the bug fix update?
Lwi, 21 Oct 2012it's said that has RAM 512mb. But i checked my phone only 340mb. How to make it to 512mb? Any ... more340MB is the user-accessible RAM. The remaining of the 512MB is used by the Android operating system itself. That means only 340MB of RAM is all that you can use for your applications to run, be it multi tasking or not. Usually in my experience background apps start to be suspended by the system when you have at least 3-4 active apps, including foreground app. Background app suspension is done to reserve RAM space for the foreground app.

The overall handling may have become a little slow,
otherwise the actual build is giving me no headache.
