Yes it runs temple run. Also its better that lg L3. Also about its battery life, I have used it for 1 hour wifi mode( surfing ), 30 minutes gaming ,15 minutes music and 14 hours standby mode and the battery is still 80% . Surely its sound is better that galaxy Y(my previous phone). Just ask questions and I post another hands on experience.
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has got attitude now look at the prices of their rest launches unless they again give that crappy screen resolution or outdated processor like 1 ghz arm 6
Ten, 05 Sep 2012Is it better than LG L3 ? Thanks...Yes, it is..i have mine and i'm loving it!!!
Ten, 05 Sep 2012Is it better than LG L3 ? Thanks...yes this is better than the l3
rahul, 05 Sep 2012when available to buy tipo retail shop in indiait should be available within 15 days. flipkart has listed it for the 2nd week of september.
the price of tipo in the retaile shops in india will be higher than in the sites. Same happened in the case of htc explorer. So i think its price in retail shops will be above 10000 rupees. Expensive or worthy???
swapan, 05 Sep 2012What about games like Temple run and battery bakup.temple run is compatible with the optimus l3. so it must be compatible with this one. battery backup depends on your use.
Angel007, 05 Sep 2012I got the phone, I should say no touch issue and It only lags sometimes if so many apps are op... moreya cnet is tootally trying to criticize sony and posting abad review will not destroy the brand image if sony
I bought it in the philippines cause its already available 2 days ago
I got the phone, I should say no touch issue and It only lags sometimes if so many apps are open.Also I only click the apps once not many times to open it. Maybe what cnet review is version 4.0.3 . I got version 4.0.4 i Dont see any issue that others are saying. All I can say go for it worth your money. I will post another hands on if you want.
abhayrockz, 05 Sep 2012Ok this tipo has been priced 1k above htc explorer on flipkart. So for 1k u get an 800mhz vs 6... moreThe problem with the price is that it's too close to the Xperia mini; and don't compare the price with the explorer. HTC always overprices it's handsets in India. Look at the Desire C having a meager 600MHZ processor and priced almost the same as the Live with Walkman. The initial price was close to the dual core Xperia U. The explorer should be priced around 7.5k and this one around 8.5.
After Sony's breakup from Ericsson , Sony have to prove their brand image by introducing new and affordable handsets. Sony does this job well by providing better cellphones than Samsung , Motorola , LG or HTC . Almost all of Sony's 2012 phones are having ICS . And ofcourse tipo an ics smartphone is much much better than galaxy Y(max.3hr battery packup). And also better than optimus l3 or HTC explorer.
