The phone is quite impressive in gaming and app performance. TempleRun is playable without any lag.
There are few bugs in the software, media files in memory card are unrecognized by gallery and music player if we try to open them with astro file manager, s if you want to keep your library updated with all meidia files, do not use astro file manager. The light for home back and options button will be on only for 10 seconds, then you cant find them in dark. There is no ambient light sensor.
If you are a budget buyer i strongly recommend you to buy this phone... Performance wise this phone never lags for me, I played templerun and ski surfing parallely without any lag...

I think it's more simple if I suggest you to install QuickPic app from Google Store - open Play Store select Sony and look for this app. With this app you can easily move some photos from DCIM to different folders outside DCIM then make the files inside not visible or hidden. Once it's hidden the thumbnails will be removed from thumbnails folder.

Though at it's price range, I still prefer the DEFY Mini. Basically exactly the same as the Tipo, only it came out in February. Same screen, cpu, gpu and RAM. Only the DEFY has Gorilla glass, is resistant to sand, dust and water, has a bigger battery and has camera flash. Even with the bigger battery, Moto clocked the cpu to 600MHz, to make the battery last longer. It's recommended manufacturer clock speed is between 600MHz and 1GHz, so both phones can be safely overclocked, but it will of course affect battery life.

Im I right?

anjali, 15 Oct 2012which phone to buy xepria u or tipo getting confused suggest me plzzzzzzz?
Xperia u is way better in specs as compared to tipo
if you are having good budget go for it
Angel007, 16 Oct 2012Can I ask? this is my 3rd android phone and the 1st to have high internal memory (almost 2G). ... moreDCIM/thumbnails directory stores all the thumbnail preview on your muti media applications (preloaded and downloaded) including from social media apps. You can reduce the amount of thumb pics in this folder by using multi media app that provide hidden files or folders option, for gallery viewer you can use QuickPic from Play Store and MX video players to hide video file previews. Or you can manually move some media files to different folders than add .nomedia file in those folders to prevent the phone keeps their thumbnails permanently in thumbnails folder.
