I have this handset for a few weeks now. It is great overall, and my only problem was the very short battery life (less than 12 hours with moderate usage). I found that what drains the battery on my handset is its continuous "searching" for cellular signal and wifi. I live in a place with marginal signal (1 bar out of 4, regularly) and find that my battery drains at 3-4% per hour just on standby. Battery cycling/conditioning did not help at all, as did turning off wifi, 3G data, etc.
After some trial and error, my battery now lasts more than 50 hours between charges. What I did was to set my Mobile Network mode to MANUAL and GSM ONLY instead of the default AUTO and WCDMA/GSM. I really don't use 3G, so being in GSM only mode is not an issue for me.
Now, I have my screen brightness set to 25%, 15s timeout, and this gives me a very acceptable standby time of at least 50 hours, even with moderate usage.
Am on stock GB 2.3.4, not rooted. :)
Hello , I've got my mini pro for 6 mounths and it was working very good , until now. Now my phone freezes a lot , especially when I'm browsering the internet . I use Dolphin browser , but because i tought that it was the problem , I deleted the dolphing browser and started using the sony ericsson browser , but again the same problem . Sometimes if i wait it might start working again , and if I shake the phone , also it can start working , but not always.
Because , my phone still has guarantee document , I sent it there , but got my phone back and in the review it said that there was not found problem like that , and got it back still not repaired and still has the same problem.
Please help meee ... i need my old phone backk ! :/

no, there are a lot of users, please check the XDA forums. This phone rocks! even beats my friends SGS regarding speed and functionality. Hopefully Sony will release a new Xperia mini pro with dual core and 1gb ram
