Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini details

A pocket rocket smartphone

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini code named ST15i is the worlds smallest Android HD video smartphone. Though the device is compact-sized, it flexes muscles to the deepest level of mobile technology possible. The new Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini looks like its closest sibbling Xperia X10 Mini and infact it is designed with the base of that model. Sony believe that the new Xperia Mini is a fine representation of the next generation of compact smartphones. The device with its 1Ghz processor, Adreno GPU, Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine and Android OS delivers an optimal level of performance that no one can imagine. Though the device looks smaller, it is an optimal performer than that of a hefty bar. Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini sports an 5-Megapixel camera with 720p HD video capability. The device connects with GSM radios and is capable of receiving 3G HSDPA at download speeds 14.4Mbps. Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini runs on Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread and is eligible for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update.

There's nothing mini about Xperia Mini
26 Apr 2012 By Rajneesh Yadvendu On

"I bought this phone 3 weeks ago from a local retailer in Chandigarh.nThis is my first android, after I lost my earlier phone, so I did carry out an extensive research. The Software Engineer inside me wanted a phone with good specifications and the MBA inside me kept on asking me about the marginal value of every rupee spent. So after detailed research for over 2 weeks I decided to buy it. Here are some reasons why. (Please do read this post till last because I have posted some important information there)n1. Great specifications (viz. the processor and GPU)n2. Value for money - Trust me guys, this cell has specifications equivalent to that of phones worth 18K - 19K.n3. Excellent reviewnnNow some pros and cons:nPros:-n1. Great phone - looks good, handy as it would fit in your pockets easily, sturdy looks,n2. GUI - Timescape is great, it very fast on this phone (compared to any Samsung), although does show some lag when started, but that's the only moment when it is slown3. Call quality - Good, voice is a bit heavy but excellent network with NO call dropsn4. Music - Ohh, I better not say anything. Music is decent without headphones (not loud though - but who listens to music on speaker). And with headphones on - You are in a disc mann5. Camera - Good (not the best - but you won't complain, panorama shot included which is a plusn6. Display - Well I don't know what Sony guys do, the display is very vivid, I watched Aamir's Satyameva Jayate video - and it looks even better than my LCDn7. Powerful flashn8. Processor - Very fast when compared to Samsung Galaxy Y or Galaxy Ace (my friends have it so I know). Qualcomm processor on snapdragon chip set is definitely good speed.n9. GPU - Adreno 205 is good enough for any single core processor, so no complaints in playing any games. After research I found a comparison on GPUs. I have ranked them as per my knowledge best first – Adreno 225 -> Adreno 220 -> PowerVR SGX 540 -> Adreno 205 -> PowerVr SGX 530 -> Adreno 200n10. Heating problem is gone - I had read many reviews about heating problem, so i bought a Jan 2012 model. No heating problems. So make sure you see the manufacture date and buy a recent one.nnCons:-nBATTERY - Without GPRS being on, it would last for a little over a day. With data on well it manages 20 hours.nCamera button – Yoo would keep pressing it, but it refuses to take a shot at times.nnSo guys i think this phone is really value for money. You can always get a better phone by doling out more cash, but if you want a phone around 15K, I think you should go for it. This phone has all features same as that of any good 19K phone. For example it has same features as on Xperia Neo V (barring HDMI output) and even Galaxy S. Galaxy S plus is a tad above with 1.4 Ghz processor @ 20K.nnAfter through research as per me below are the best phones in specific price range:n1. Below 10K - HTC Explorern2. 10K - 15K - Xperia Mini or Motorola Defy Plusn3. 20K - Spend 2K more and take Motorola Atrix 2n4. 25K - 28K - HTC Sensationn5. 30K and beyond - HTC One X, Sony Xperia S (not sure about others)nnPhones you should not buyna) Galaxy Y - Bad features and GUI. Do not buy until you have serious budget constraintsnb) Galaxy Ace/Ace Duos - Low on configuration, Galaxy Ace has 800 Mhz processor while Duos has GPRS only on CDMA, even Ace plus has Adreno 200 onlync) Xperia mini Pro - Why pay 4K more for just a keyboard. Anyways you will switch to swipe feature soonnd) HTC One V - Grossly overpriced - 1 Ghz normal processor with probably no GPUne) HTC Wildfire and HTC Incredible - Old phones with old specifications. Even the company would not recommend as you can go for a better model at same pricenf) Galaxy S - Again outdated with no flashnnLastly - Do think before you upgrade for Gingerbread to ICS. These upgrades tend to make phones slow if the cell is not feature rich. For example my friends having Xperia mini X10 (Old edition) had speed problems after upgrading to Ginger bread. As a simple thumb rule, ICS only on a dual core processor." Also the moment you purchase any phone, please order a compatible screen guard from Flipkart. There is no use buying a screen guard in market as it might not be the right one.nI also bought a 16GB Micro SD card (Class 10) from Flipkart and it’s running awesome.
