Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro – User Review
5 August 2012
Summary: The Xperia Mini Pro is a great phone to have especially for its compact size and QWERTY keypad. It has got the looks and a long list of features. In short it has *almost* everything an Xperia Arc has packed into a tiny phone. It’s a great deal especially since it has QWERTY, HD video recording, a snappy 1Ghz processor and UI. And as I mentioned earlier this is a really smart purchase option.
Summary: Sony Ericsson’s focused approach on the Android platform has seen a slew of smartphones powered by the Google mobile operating system. Over the course of 2011, its Xperia lineup has been steadily introduced, some with much fanfare like the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Xperia Arc , while others took on a low key approach. The latter approach is taken with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro, an Android 2.3 device equipped with a slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard.
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini pro is definitely a niche phone. While the rest of the market is targeting bigger screens for multimedia and browsing addicts, manufacturers doing their level best to offer larger displays on their cheaper devices, the mini pro sticks resolutely to its pocketable premise. That demands a few compromises - battery life, camera and browsing experience being the most obvious - but has its advantages as well.
Excerpt: We also got a chance to play with the Xperia Mini ‘s slightly chubbier sibling (not that the original wasn’t on the portly side itself). The specs are the same as the Mini, 1 Ghz Snapdragon, 5 MP shooter with 720p recording. Although we’ve been assured the screen was the exact same one on both units, the one on the Pro seemed far superior to the washed out one on the Mini. It could be down to a prototype issue, but the difference bore mentioning.
Summary: Sony Ericsson has recently announced two new Xperia series devices. The company has unveiled the Xperia Mini Pro and Xperia Mini smartphones for the global market. The new smartphone fall under the category of smallest smartphones that runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro shares somewhat similar specifications as that of the Xperia Mini version.
Summary: Sony Ericsson has always been known for its fantastic mobile phones with excellent features. This time the company has come up with an excellent addition to its Xperia series of smartphones with the launch of Xperia Mini Pro. The new Sony Ericsson phone Xperia Mini Pro is beautifully designed with a decent large screen, a roomy physical keyboard with side sliding mechanism and a number of smartphone features.
Summary: Sony’s latest incarnation the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro has finally entered UK shores with the latest Android version Gingerbread onboard along with a sleek QWERTY keyboard to eradicate all typing hassles. Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro - Design & Display: Weighing just 142 grams, the handset integrates a vibrant LED-backlit LCD capacitive touchscreen that’s entirely Scratch-resistant, but most crucially has the Sony’s latest Mobile BRAVIA Engine built in.
Summary: A phone that manages to squeeze a full, slide-out QWERTY keyboard into a compact package The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Mini Pro manages to squeeze a full, slide-out QWERTY keyboard into a ridiculously compact package. A successor to the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini Pro, the XPERIA Mini Pro offers a number of benefits over its predecessor.
Conclusion: If space is at a premium, you'll love the dinky proportions of this powerful handset, with its clever qwerty keyboard that's just as easy to use (almost) as much larger versions. It's packed with good features too, though the cramped screen won't be for everyone.
Pros: Tiny, but very functional qwerty keyboard, Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, 5-megapixel camera, 3in capacitive touch screen with Bravia engine, 1GHz processor
Cons: Small screen not much good for video watching or browsing
