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...

Unboxing the Sony Xperia Miro


We got the very budget-friendly, recently launched Sony Xperia Miro in the house this week. It’s a pretty basic phone but I’m still excited to...

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 Android phone (preview)


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

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

Low resolution display ; No Australian ETA

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.

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

The phone doesn't exactly blow your mind with the rest of its specification, either, with the Sony Xperia Miro processor lining up as an 800MHz single-core offering which has a fairly modest 512MB of RAM available to it. Storage space is limited to...

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

Sony Xperia Miro Review: In Depth


"sony xperia miro is an ice cream sandwich mobile,this phone is never get me angree from errors and touch screen problems................"

Quirky design ; Good camera ; Android 4.0 ; 2GB onboard storage

Low-resolution screen ; Overloaded with widgets ; Occasional UI stuttering ; Mediocre call quality

It does however sacrifice on screen resolution and processor speed. This won't be too detrimental for most given the fact the Miro looks good and packs so much personality. Gamers may want to check out the Huawei Ascend G300, anyone in need of a simple...
