Sony Ericsson Xperia mini review: Small is the new big

 

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 you'll need to be at ease with its multiple identities. But it's not moping around...

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 3" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480), Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine ; Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread ; 1 GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU,...

No smart dialing ; No front-facing camera ; Loudspeaker performance is a mixed-bag ; No DivX/XviD support ; Typing a bit tricky on the smallish screen ; Doubtful video recording quality

Sony Ericsson Xperia mini Review

 

Ultra-compact smartphones may not be as popular as their large-screened counterparts, but that doesn't mean there isn't a nice, cosy place in the market for them, be it a bit smaller. At least, that's what Sony Ericsson tries to convince us in, by...

Sony Xperia Tipo mini-review

 

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 overlo...

As for video, you’re limited to 640x480 resolution with plenty of compression, and output quality that’s not much use for anything. See our sample shots below for a few examples.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Review

 

The updated Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini is possibly one of the best Android smartphones to have arrived in the market in 2011. Just goes on to show how important updates are, if done well. The slightly bigger display, a powerful processor and the latest...

Good performance, thanks to the new processor, Tweaked design looks nice, Latest Android Gingerbread version now on board, Text on this display is quite sharp, Timescape UI has improved dramatically over time

Disappointing camera, Some colours are too vivid on the display, Battery life isn't anything to be proud of

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo mini-review

 

Sony Ericsson's 2011 line has so far been dominated by devices with one or more standout features. The Xperia Arc was unbelievably slim and light, with an exceptional camera, while the Xperia P...

Screen size aside, the main thing you'll be sacrificing if you choose the Xperia Neo over the Arc is aesthetics -- the Neo is somewhat frumpy compared to its slimmer, prettier sibling. But this is balanced by the fact that it offers a similar feature...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Hands On

 

We recently sat down with Sony Ericsson reps to have a look at the company's smallest and yes, one could easily make the case, cutest offering, the Xperia Mini. Sony Ericsson are calling it the smallest Android smartphone in the world with HD video...

What this does is couple any phone-specific activities with Facebook-specific ones throughout the UI. A contact’s Facebook status and pictures are available just by accessing it from the phone’s menu, no need to pull up the actual Facebook app. You can...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini review

 

Slightly larger but still tiny, is 2011's Android update a big winner?

Superb user interface additions ; Clever Facebook integration ; Good web browser with Flash support ; Good quality display

Still photos lack some detail ; Colour is exaggerated ; 720p videos lack detail ; Limited video codec support ; Slightly higher price

Before the arrival of Sony's Ericsson's new Xperia Mini, the X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro were an odd little couple, launching in mid-2010 with Android 1.6 and a bespoke and heavily-customised user interface on top.
