It has mentioned 10hrs for Xperia X10, which is definitely not true by any means. So wait till full review.
My guess is miro will have better battery backup than what is mentioned here. reasons being the same(bigger battery, low res screen, efficient and underclocked processor)

Another thing was that u n some other guy mentioned that miro doesn't have timescape UI.Why won't it have?"Timescape" is sony's propietry custom skin(UI) which it puts over all it's android device just like "sense" for htc n "touchwiz" for samsung.

Of apps available for their os,thats y we all found nokia disgusting. But still old age people like nokia only as its proprietry os is userfriendly.
And about pricing of miro, it wil b 130-150 british pounds i.e. 11000-13100 INR.
My all the privious comments were based on the price tag 11-13K dats y miro lacks some features,bt according to u if it will cost 10K then it wil be a gr8 phone.

Nokia sucks money a lot n doesn't make android phones.
Samsung always lacks atleast one important feature in their every mobile and make u confuse what to buy. Their battery backup is also poor.
Sony is the only brand which releases mobiles with latest OS, even the entry-level phones too and they give updates to most of their mobiles. Sony's hardware is well known, they are famous for Camera and other electronic products. And Sony releases mobiles with almost all necessery features(unlike samsung) and on affordable price.
Miro should not cross 12k INR, probably upto 10k INR.
hey guys its confirmed. this is gonna launch in india @12,899 INR on online stores.
am gonna grab one for sure

well, earlier i was in love with nokia and htc only but when i noticed sony is making phones with the same specifications and also the price range was very affordable, then gradually i started taking interest in sony. and today em loving it :) lolzz
and its true that only sony (a global reputated brand) is providing smartphones with latest hardware, software and technologies with an affordable price, while samsung and htc have very high price for the same smartphone.
miro dont have large display, HD video recording, timescape UI, bravia engine, etc but its worth for 13K (or less)

Its display is led backlit lcd, so there'll be bravia engine. 720p video recording would be great. It has timescape with twitter integration.
ST26i suggests that the price will be greater than Xperia u (ST25i), incase i suggest you to go for U and not J. Store mostly used files in phone memory and for other files you can use USB OTG in Xperia U.
Rifqi, 29 Jul 2012I'll buy this phone if: 1 Ghz processor & 3,7" with WVGAThan go 4 xperia neo v.
Rifqi, 29 Jul 2012I'll buy this phone if: 1 Ghz processor & 3,7" with WVGANo, its 3.5" and 800mHz. U can go for Xperia J if u have a better budget and time to wait.
AnonD-64192, 28 Jul 2012thanks krish,but may be xperia J records video at 720p, whereas xperia miro records video at V... moreAs u say, miro lacks in Bravia engine, Timescape UI, HD video recording. But it gives some additional features like DLNA, Wi-fi Direct, 3D and Motion Gaming, Handwriting Recognition and probably a 12-key virtual on-screen keyboard( in white paper, Sony writes "On-screen QWERTY keyboard, 12-key keyboard" in keyboard details), scratch-resistant anti-reflective coating, suitable 1500mAh battery. With these and with a notification light miro is pretty enough in its price if under 11k. Now we have to see whether these additional features also come in Xperia J or not. Xperia J will be better in basic specs and more pricey. So lets check after announcement.
AnonD-64192, 27 Jul 2012yeah i mailed GSMArena for their mistake and next day they rectified it but still its wrong, a... moreGsmarena also puts "MSM7225AA" instead of "MSM7225A" in tipo also, but its correct in miro. Ok, leave it, it will not confuse people much.
Xperia J is better than miro in following specs-
1. bigger screen (probably 4" Vs 3.5")
2. better resolution
(400x854 Vs 320x480)
3. probably more ppi as resolution is better
4. faster processor
(800MHz Vs 1GHz)
most probably it has dual camera.
Other specs are not leaked right now.
And it will be more pricey.
Miro is good enough in 10,000 INR, u won't get any other mobile in this price as it. If u have a better budget and time to wait, then go for Xperia J. But you should check other specs after announcement to have a more perfect comparative view.
Official site shows it has xLOUD enhancement but here gsmarena forgot to put up xLOUD feature.
AnonD-18715, 28 Jul 2012If you need large screen then go for Xperia J.. Full spec of J is not yet revealed..
I think ... morethanks krish,but may be xperia J records video at 720p, whereas xperia miro records video at VGA@30fps only...
i like xperia miro as it has all the features and latest android OS,but only thing in miro which doesnt allow me to buy is
1.talktime (only 5hours),
2.video recording at VGA@30fps(atleast 720p for me),
3.no BRAVIA engine
4.no timescape UI
5.small screen,only 3.5", it should be atleast 4" making the message typing easy, comfortable and spacious for on-screen qwerty keyboard.
what do you think about the points mentioned above?
