Summary: This time Sony Ericsson came up with a phone that really has much potential to become a bestseller in its segment. Both design and feature wise MT15i has all bells and whistles expected from an Android device.

Summary: The ringtone volume is medium and you can miss a call if the phone is in your pocket, especially in winter. The same can be said about the vibro, which is not powerful enough to be noticed at all times. These drawbacks are predetermined by the model's size. There was no space for a more powerful loudspeaker and better vibro. Unlike Sony Ericsson X10 this model has no problems with the voice reproduction and transfer.
