many of you might have read cnet uk's review of the tipo. They have said that the phone lags sometimes. which phone in this range doesnt. the galaxy y is a good example of how laggy phones of this price range can be.just ignore these small glitches and focus on the raw power. even high end phones have small problems whem they are launched but they are soon resolved with an update. i dont think these small things determine what to choose and what not to choose. just wait for 15-20 days and you will know whether this problem is with many people or only cnet had a phone with problems.

Actually the price of phones depends on the market. gsy has got a price cut in India now after almost an year and off late sony has been pricing its phones very conviniently here, so I'll just keep my fingers crossed.

From the CNET UK review:
The Sony Xperia Tipo delivers Android Ice Cream Sandwich to people on a tight budget. Sadly, so many bugs and glitches make this phone dismally unreliable. What's more, the screen, camera and build quality are poor. Even at this budget price, there are far better 'droids out there, so do yourself a favour and steer well clear.
eh,,red some reviews about this phone,,they said it has issues with the touchscreen..they felt it was unresponsive sometimes,,gonna save some money for xperia neo l instead..

But it have many problems. XPERIA MINI battery is very bad. It has problem over heating. And it's camera has some visible spots.
