  • Sony Xperia tipo review: Mini just got bigger
    GSMArena team
    21 Sep 2012 | gsmarena

    The NXT line gave Sony the strong start they needed after returning to the smartphone game on their own. The Japanese then focused on filling the lower ranks and, yet again, we see them look for inspiration in the old Sony Ericsson scrapbook. Sony Xperia tipo official pictures The Sony Xperia tipo is right on time for the anniversary of the Xperia mini`s launch. The little droid by Sony Ericsson is still a reasonably popular choice for bargain-hu...

    Verdict: The Xperia line can be tracked down to the days when Ericsson was in the mix and some may go as far as calling the Sony Xperia tipo a snapshot of that time. The tipo is based on a certain model in the Sony Ericsson lineup and there`s no denying that ...

  • The baby of the Xperia range offers up ICS at a low price
    James Rogerson
    07 Sep 2012 | techradar

    The Sony Xperia Tipo is the latest addition to the Xperia smartphone range, and it`s undoubtedly the baby of the family. It comes in at around £100 (around $160), with an 800MHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 2.5GB of internal storage, a 3.2MP camera and a 3.2-inch 320 x 480 display. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which in terms of its specifications is definitely the standout feature. The Sony Xperia Tipo (also known as the ...

    Pros: Android 4.0, Smooth and responsive, Solid battery life, Fast browser, Good for music,

    Cons: Low res screen, Cramped keyboard, Bad for watching video, Mediocre camera, Contacts and messaging,

  • Sony Xperia tipo Review

    31 Aug 2012 | phonearena

    Sony isn`t as shy to go downmarket with Android as HTC used to be, and the Xperia tipo is a proud proof of that strategy. Codenamed as the Tapioca (we wish they kept the edible name), this is the first truly entry level Android from the Japanese. Has......

    Pros: Good call quality ; Capable loudspeaker

    Cons: Subpar camera quality

    Verdict: The Sony Xperia tipo is a very decent foray in the world of entry level Androids. It has the performance and stability of Android Ice Cream Sandwich going for it, as well as a pleasant to hold, and comfortable to operate with one hand chubby chassis....

  • Sony Xperia Tipo mini-review
    Alex Dobie
    24 Sep 2012 | androidcentral

    Sony has released more smartphones than ever before 2012, hoping that strength in numbers will help it overcome Android competition from the likes of Samsung and HTC. One important, but often overlooked area of any manufacturer’s line-up is the entry level -- it’s these devices which attract first-time smartphone users, giving them their first taste of the Android platform. We’re taking a look at one such device today. The Sony ...

    Pros: A decent, if basic Android experience for around £100 SIM-free. Delivers Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and many of the benefits of more expensive Sony phones. Build quality is decentm considering the low price.

    Cons: Slow CPU will limit gaming and multimedia performance. Poor camera performance in still shots and video.

    Verdict: You don't expect the world when you're paying just £100 for a smartphone, and the Sony Xperia Tipo offers a basic, Android 4.0 experience that's compromised, but not fatally so. There's a vast gulf between this phone and a &poun...

  • Sony Xperia Tipo hands-on
    Luke Westaway
    30 Jun 2012 | cnet

    The Sony Xperia Tipo is a tiny Android Ice Cream Sandwich-powered mobile. It`s unlikely to impress in the performance stakes, but at under u00a3100, I`m hopeful it could be a decent Android handset if you`re buying your first smart phone....

    Pros: Will cost under u00a3100 ; Android Ice Cream Sandwich ; Colourful design

    Cons: Low-res screen ; Not a powerful processor

  • Sony Xperia Tipo Mobile Phone - Black
    Raevant Gupta
    27 Nov 2012

    Best Features: xLoud Experience

    Pros: 3D and motion gaming

    Cons: Small display screen (3.2")

    Overall: Aptly called the hassle-free smartphone, Sony Xperia Tipo is designed to make your communication easier. Its 3.2 inch scratch-resistant touchscreen responds intuitively to your touch. You can use this phone longer without charging as it has a strong 1500 mAh battery. It runs on Android 4.0 (ICS) to give you the best of the apps world. An 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor ensures smooth multitasking. Its 3.2MP camera with 4x digital zoom and video recorder make capturing special moments fun. Xperia Tipo loves to entertain you - it features the x LOUD experience from Sony that ensures you hear music with amazing clarity. It also has TrackID music recognition that tells you all about any song when you keep your phone close to the source of music. Tune in to the FM radio on-the-go. With 3D and motion gaming, it makes every moment exciting. Email from anywhere and keep in touch with your friends and colleagues on its pre-loaded WhatsApp.
