I have had this phone about 6 weeks, I purchased a Bluechip Neon (Android Gingerbread) phone about a year ago, because my Nokia had problems and I wanted to play with Android. I couldn't get on with it, I kept using my old Nokia, despite the blotchy screen. Just used the Android as a home for my previous SIM card as a lot of people still had the number, and to play about with Android apps. I have used Nokias for years, and would have stuck with them; even more years experience with Windows made me opt for an Android device.
The Tipo was not only cheaper than the Bluechip, it is VASTLY superior. I did a comparison of specifications of phones for under £100, the Tipo having a graphics processor was the real clincher. Phone prices generally seem to be dropping quickly, except for the bling fashion items. Six weeks on there may be better vaslue for money?
The Tipo is a good little computer, sometimes has problems as phone, callers voice interupted. Could be due to data usage, as I am struggling to find a way to stop apps from doing auto-updates, despite turning off the options wherever I can find them. This seems to be a feature on Android?
Comes with to many pre-installed apps that I am never likely to use and just steal battery life and data usage, managed to uninstall them eventually. Another Android feature?
Issues with WIFI, Google search indicates I am not the only one to experience this. Problems finding hubs, hotspots etc. Bump app does not seem to work. None of this bothers me particularly, although it might be an issue for some users.
For £50 odd plus £20 to undo network lock (Tesco) and no contract? Excellent value for money!
With the range of rolling monthly contract (or even PAYG) deals available, Why would anyone not pay up-front for a phone like this and have total freedom to change phone and service provider when something better becomes available? Next upgrade will probs be for reasonable priced 4G, when it becomes available, and a Nexus. Although 3G from 3 is fast enough for me for now.

aju, 26 May 2013anybody plzz help me friendz...am using tipo dual for 10 days...one of the main prob am facing... morethe Tipo am using has a very good battery - could last more than 24 hours even with WIFI and heavy usage. have you tried hard reset? possibility of background programs draining the batt.
Am using the tipo. overall performance - excellent, what you'd expect from entry level smartphone. the major problem is most caller to tipo is experiencing echoes of their voice. heard that latest firmware update ( 11.a.0.4.27) solved this but the upgrade isn't available in my country yet.
