I also used wifi straight for 2 hours and I dont feel any heat from the phone ( no heating issue for me ).
About its gps, when im outside the house its 20 to 30 meters accurate but sometimes only 10 to 15 steps from our house. About the Light ambient sensor( I did not notice 2 transparent holes in the top but in the upper right theirs a notification light( red-charging, green-full charge, and blue for message alert/receive). By the way I got version 4.0.4 ( not buggy like 4.0.3) Im looking for bugs yet, so far so good. Feel free to ask I will answer your questions about hands-on experience.
Tipo had android version 4.0.3 which was buggy. But tipo has latest version 4.0.4. I think sony delayed the release of tipo to solve the issue. Hopefully this version is not buggy. Sony is best. Those concerned about the price should wait for a month. I think it will come in the range of htc explorer
Gud newz friends. Tipo and the entire 2012 xperia range are going to receive walkman player,picture album app,and movies app as a part of software upgrade later this year. Xperia acro has these apps by default. This has been stated by sony at the ifa meet of 2012. However 2011 xperia range will not get these. If u doubt me, check the news tab in gsmarena or just google sony media apps for 2012 xperia
thank you for te reply. just wanted to know is it 30 meters accurate whn yu r indoors? wats d max accuracy dat yu get when yu r outdoors under clear sky?
Its Gps is 30 meters accurate. (24 hours already pass after charging) My phone battery is still 55% with 1:30 hours of surfing,50 minutes gaming,20 minutes music, send messages, call someone, and I charge it yesterday. The phone battery is still good (24 hours already pass-including standby mode). NO problem with the touch( I did not remove the plastic protector yet). Just say what you want to know and I will try my best to reply back.
frankly speaking it is not a wise decision to go for this phone reason is its high price . not a bad product but pricing .
its better to get htc explorer ? why u ask
they both have same chipset explorer and tipo
just a 200 mhz bump in cpu .
and htc has 100 mb only .
now if you can root it you can overclock your cpu from 600 mhz to 1.3 ghz . so cpu speed out of the way .
internal memory you can use adb tutorial for that which works without rooting the phone . you cant move gmail and system apps but other than that you can move all apps like facebook ,whatapp , flashetc. so no matter what you will always have 100 mb free no matter how many apps you use . and it works without root .
third is the OS ,
now actually i feel that ics is a crappy os for low budget cell phones . why ? because it needs at least 1ghz dual core processor to run as smooth as gingerbread. it is not meant to be for low end phones.
the answer is jelly bean . jelly bean with project butter is what you should be waiting for as it can run smoothly on galaxy ace and other budget droids .
no matter what you can see in htc desire one v also there are hiccups at times . and whats the point of smartphone if it aint fast .
htc explorer on 600 mhz with gb > 800 mhz on tipo.
and since you dont want to root it you wil be stuck with that .
now the price , i am going to book my htc explorer for rs 7190 on ebay tommorow , as they are providing 10 % off.
and the build quality , touch screen of htc explorer is far far better than tipo .
its ok most of you wont agree with me , i am not hating tipo just saying if not priced under 8.5 k , dont even think about it. wait for samsung galaxy y 2 . it will have the same specs as this one .
how do i know ? you ask ? apply common sense every company in price range of rs 7000 - rs 17000 is releasing phones with same cpu , so galaxy y 2 will have exact same specs as galaxy mini 2 which is not yet launched . and mini 2 has msmm7722a arm v7 .
and i can bet it wont be priced less than 8000 rs. samsung has got attitude now look at the prices of their rest launches unless they again give that crappy screen resolution or outdated processor like 1 ghz arm 6
better buy Live with walkman and install custom rom if you geek minded, why?
1.lww use msm 8255 which is the fastest single core chip to date and can be overclocked up to 2ghz with 1.5-.8ghz stable
2. five mega pixel camera with auto focus
3. second hand is cheaper than BNIB tipo
4. adreno 205 gpu with updated driver is a beast better than ehanced adreno 200
AnonD-69979, 06 Sep 2012Yes it runs temple run. Also its better that lg L3. Also about its battery life, I have used i... moreHi frnd, plz post a review. Does it support flash player or is HTML5 enabled.how long battery will last if i surf net continuously.
[deleted post]I've seen a lot of complaints about adexmart. don't take any chances. buy only from trusted sources.
AnonD-4179, 05 Sep 2012Hi Amit,Ya its expensive but wait two months ,price will come down to 8k. Its not worth more t... moreNishu i have waited for this cell for last 2 months bt it's overpriced i thought it must be around 8-8.5k bt it hasn't so i think to move on HTC EXPLORER bcoz their r very few people commenting wrong about that one & many complaints about TIPO's touch & lagginess... May be Tipo is laggy bcoz of heavy ICS on 800 Mhz
Angel pls post abt tipo's gps. The accuracy in meters that you get when you try to find your location in google maps. ?
I think this is a good budget phone to buy. I thought of buying Xperia Miro first then I saw this one. It has the same CPU and GPU(Adreno 200(Enhanced)). Its just that Miro has a better camera and it is slimmer than Tipo. But I think I will buy this phone for sure...
