@Angle007- does this phone has facility to capture screenshots? Have you tried it yet?
adad, 09 Sep 2012no,you're really wrong about the performances bro,i heard from users experience in indonesia t... morethe performance of the tipo in ICS may be smoother but you can't ignore the 5 MP camera in the mini and it's better display. Well about ICS on the tipo, I don't think that it will provide all features of ICS. The newer kernel is better and the benchmarks are surely better, but you should know that benchmarks are based on small differences. I mean you wouldn't even notice that a script takes 10ms or 20ms to execute on any phone, the benchmark will say that the phone having an execute time of 10ms is twice as better than the phone that has an execute time f 20ms. So, don't look at benchmarks. IMO the xperia mini with GB is far better than the tipo with ICS. ICS has been over hyped as far as I can see. It is an improved version no doubt about it, but you also have to see that the handsets having ICS are providing it's full features or not. The only good thing which you will get is folders on your home screens and an improved task switcher. The main thing is the internal changes, the changes in the libraries which you will not notice in general life. And as far as the data monitor app is concerned, there are plenty of such apps in the market. If you are concerned about the availability of more number of apps for ICS then think twice, there are only a handful of apps which run only on ICS. The GB user percentage is still around 57%, so apps for GB will keep coming for more than 2 years from now and the huge number of apps which are presently in the market are not going anywhere. So, I don't think having ICS or GB makes much difference in real life. The tipo is one of those handsets which lets you say that I have ICS but doesn't give you it's full power. If you want to see what really ICS is then you should watch some videos on youtube for the Galaxy Nexus which has vanilla ICS, then you will understand what I am talking about. As far as I can say, the handset is overpriced at present and should come down to 8k in 2-3 months.

xperia fan, 08 Sep 2012i heard that after updating to 4.0.4 xperia fones facing LED notification problems when coming... moreUpdate: About the notification light, I never encountered any problems with it. Even if its on standby or lock mode and theirs a message the notification light( blue for message turn on) and including message alert tone( both working at the same time) sometimes when I'm busy doing something outside the house, I can't hear its message alert tone, the blue blinking light lets me know that I have a message.

bharat, 08 Sep 2012the xperia mini gives a much better feature package than the tipo. the price of the tipo is hi... moreno,you're really wrong about the performances bro,i heard from users experience in indonesia that have both phones,tipo perform smoother than mini in ics because tipo has newer kernel than mini even mini has better hardware specs,the newer kernel on tipo optimized for ics like htc desire c does,mini not surely get jb update,but i think tipo will get it because htc desire c get it too,unfortunately for mini that have older kernel than tipo or desire c or even htc one v that have same hardware with mini and lww has new kernel too like tipo and htc c,for everyone I suggest it dont doubt to buy this phone :-D

SACH91, 08 Sep 2012guys plz help sony xperia tipo or sony ericson xperia mini supa confusd plz helpthe xperia mini gives a much better feature package than the tipo. the price of the tipo is high at this time because it has ICS. other than that there are no features which say that it is a better phone. the xperia mini has also received an ICS upgrade so you'll have to just upgrade it after buying. as far as the comparison goes the mini has hd video recording and playback, a 1 GHZ processor, 16M colors on the screen, mobile bravia engine, 5 MP camera and a better GPU. the mini has a smaller battery, smaller internal memory and a not so new processor. I've heard people say that after upgrading it to ICS the performance is not that smooth, but I think that it is still smoother than the tipo. the mini packs a punch and I suggest you go for it. If you are going up to the mini then you might as well save some money and spend some more cash afterwards and get the live with walkman. Its much better than both of these phones. And moving away from Android the Lumia 610 has a much better display than any of these handsets and definitely has a much smoother and nicer user experience. the price of the lumia 610 is going to decrease now and you might find it in the 10k range within the next two months. Don't look at the processor or RAM. Windows phone is much lighter and smoother than Android or iOS. A 3.7 inch display and a resolution of 800x480 is definitely something which you would love. Just get a demo at a Reliance digital store and you'll fall in love at first sight.
