Sony Ericsson Xperia mini review: Small is the new big

26 August 2011
It comes in a small package but has power to spare. Lovely little phone, assuming you can keep up with it. The Sony Ericsson Xperia mini is a full-fledged smartphone and youíll need to be at ease with its multiple identities. But itís not moping around...

I have this phone for 3 weeks.
Comparing to the 3.5 X10, its seems way much smoother and faster.
It can handle the same games and apps better.
The loudspeaker is louder, the display is much crispier and with excellent visibility.
The touchscreen is far more responsive. The GPS, is at least as accurate.
Unlike the previous mini, this mini made no compromises to performance.
As i use 2phones, i cant have 2 bricks and i appreciate the smaller dimensions.
The big brick is ideal for my multimedia, browsing and GPS needs, but the small one has turned out to be my primary!!
Hopefully more companies will follow this example and start offering the edge of tech, in such a compact size.
If one doesnt need the Galaxy s2 size screen, either because he carries another brick, pad or laptop.
He should have the option of currying such a mini wonder, without compromises in performance (because these compromises do matter in everyday music, from text messaging, to gaming)

1.Really bright screen which consumes a lot of battery even at low brightness.
2.Picture and Video capture quality is just average, HD resolution does not make a big difference.
3.Features added by Sony comes in Handy.
4.You will like the phone at first sight but few essentials like Task manager, Secondary camera & File manager you will definitely miss.
PS:Never had the heating issue.

awikaw, 23 Sep 2011can this play hq games?maybe the game you have installed is not compatible xperia mini

I think the malfunctioning of the touch pad cause by the overheating of the phone and battery cannot be fixed but it can be prevented. The touch pad of the xperia mini react on heat so when the phone and battery heats up it became abnormal. I haven't experience that kind of problem. Just like the cpu and the power supply of the desktops and laptops they overheat when you use it too long the, so does the xperia mini. I use to turn off my phone at least 30min to 1hr a day after i charge the battery to cool down the system. i think thats the only way to prevent the overheating of the xperia mini.... Im so invove with my phone. hope the coment helps everyone having the problem in their phone...

PLEASE, ATTENTION FOR FUTURE BUYERS. Many of the units of this phone present a malfunction related to overheating. This makes the phone unusable. Please, read carefully the post at SE forum before buying:
