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

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 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 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 video: Hands-on

 

We take a look at the smallest Android that has HD video smarts

Expert review by:

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

In terms of value for money, it's a decent option. The 3" screen is a little limiting if you're into mobile media and gaming, but the phone itself is a glitch-free, user-friendly little marvel you won't end up hating.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Mini Android phone

 

Not content with its XPERIA Arc, XPERIA Play and XPERIA Neo Android phones, Sony Ericsson has moved to strengthen its low-end Android line-up with the...

Compact size with improved display ; Full functions and features of Android OS ; 720p HD video recording

Limited internal memory ; No Australian availability announced

Building on the original XPERIA X10 Mini, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Mini is a fully featured smartphone in an incredibly tiny package. Sony Ericssom claims the XPERIA Mini is the world's smallest Android smartphone that records HD video.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini hands-on

 

The Android-based Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini packs a decently sized touchscreen into a remarkably tiny case that's stuffed with smart-phone features. It could well be a corker.

Tiny but packs a fairly large screen ; Powerful Android software

Slightly chubby ; May be too small for some

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Review

 

Credit to Sony Ericsson for cramming so many features into such a tiny handset. For once small, doesn't mean less.

With the Xperia Mini, Sony Ericsson has created a handset that is small without compromising on features. Sure its compact form factor won't appeal to everyone, but connectivity is excellent and Sony Ericsson has included enough extra features to...
