Sony Xperia miro review: You too

 

In a world full of phones you wish you could afford, the Sony Xperia miro is one you don't have to wish too hard for. In honesty, Sony didn't work themselves too hard, but when you're putting together a portfolio from scratch, you want it built on...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band UMTS support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 3.5" 16M-color LED-backlit LCD capacitive touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480 pixels) at around 165 ppi ; Android OS v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ; 800 MHz...

Middling screen quality ; Non-hot-swappable microSD slot ; No hardware shutter key ; No DivX/XviD support ; Occasional lags in the user interface ; Mediocre audio output

The Sony Xperia miro is made exactly by the book - just not sure whose book it is. It seems all major manufacturers have near identical offers in the Android low-end. And while Sony is only catching up, some makers have had the time to perfect the...

Sony Xperia miro Review

 

Let's say you are a young, socially active individual who is looking for a decent smartphone, but isn't quite ready to drop a boatload of cash on one. Well, the Sony Xperia miro, which we are reviewing today, is made just for you then. It is a low-end...

Responsive interface ; Takes good photos for its class ; Compact

The screen is of below average quality ; Web browser is laggy

Now that we've gone over its pros and cons, we can safely conclude that the Sony Xperia miro is worthy of bearing our seal of approval. It earned our sympathies with its responsiveness and decent main camera, which are features not often seen on...

Sony Xperia Miro Android Smartphone Review

 

Sony, like other manufacturers, look to cater for entry level consumers with devices such as the Xperia Miro, packing as much of the quality, features and performance into the device as is possible for minimal cost.

It is easy for a manufacturer to fall into a number of traps when desiging a low cost handset, leading to a device which looks or feels very cheap... or performs terribly whether that is because the CPU is lacking or because storage is so low that we...

Sony Xperia Miro preview: Sony offering a tasty Ice Cream Sandwich for budget buyers

 

The Sony Xperia Miro is a basic, budget handset targeted at pre-paid buyers. Its specifications won't blow anyone away, but the Xperia Miro will come with Google's latest 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Likely to be cheap, Front-facing camera

Low resolution display, No Australian ETA

Hands on: Sony Xperia Miro review

 

Ensuring a complete range of phones from low to high-end, the Sony Xperia Miro arrives towards the bottom of Sony's handset offering.

Long battery life ; Great music player ; Great for calls and messaging ; Strong connectivity options

Poor screen ; Terrible video recording ; Sluggish performance ; Cheap build ; Little storage

Sony Xperia Miro pictures and hands-on

 

Sony has yet another smartphone for us to take a peek at. In what seems like a line up more complex than discovering the Higgs Boson, the Xperia Miro is basically another phone entering into the cheap Android handset battle. All the standard things are...

Sony Xperia Miro

 

Sony's Xperia Miro may be affordable, but its performance can disappoint.

Good build quality, Long battery life, Good call quality, Runs Ice Cream Sandwich

Price is high for the specification, Small, low resolution screen, Limited memory for storage

Sony Xperia Miro hands-on

 

The Android Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Xperia Miro is unlikely to offer mind-blowing performance but it makes a good first impression with an interesting design. Here's hoping the low-resolution screen doesn't let this smart phone down.

Interesting design ; Shouldn't be too expensive

Low-res screen ; Weedy processor
