Summary: The Xperia Mini Pro SK17i I bought through Amazon.com was defective so I returned it and bought the SK17a here in Tokyo from Amazon.co.jp. SK17a is my first Smartphone and Android so I'm only now enjoying the benefits of smart devices and now understanding the reason why they are called "Smart", and I am giddy. But I won't go into comparing it to my previous cell phone and why I hate it so much because it's too much to list.
Summary: I bought this phone to use whilst studying abroad in London for three months. Since I have a Droid Bionic in the states which has a 4inch screen, going to this much smaller screen was much different at first, but I quickly adapted to it. The phone is not particularly powerful - good luck playing any games other than solitaire without the graphics freezing up- but it is a nice size if you are looking for something small, and the slide-out keyboard is fantastic.
Summary: This phone is truly amazing for the price, it does what it should. The user interface is smooth and very good looking, the keyboard is a charm to use, really quick for texting. As for battery life, is not that good, that's why I'm giving it 4 stars. Stock android 4.0.4 update is very slow, I'd recommend going into xda-developers and search for a custom rom of your liking, I'm using Xperia Ice Cream Pureness and it is smooth like butter plus I get to play games on the...
Summary: This phone is pretty darn good for its size.... A 1GHz processor and a decent little slide-out keyboard. I did find I got pretty tired of looking at the screen for any period of time though as it was so small... Sound quality of the phone was good and it was pretty nice for playing music on (I used Winamp). Camera left everything to be desired, even considering it was supposed to be 5MP....
Summary: It is a smart phone where I can have access to all email and social networks in one place and keep me informed. Call quality is good, especially the speaker phone. The keyboard is very convenient since the touchpad is sometimes difficult to handle at the touch screen sencible The camera takes excellent photos and applications load faster. All I can object to is the battery, which runs relatively fast. Eatoy but overall very happy with my phone.
Summary: It's one of the smallest android phones. Comparing all the features this phone with other in the same class, you can not find a better one. The fast CPU is very fast for games (especially for shooters) and for web. The keyboard is very responsive and spaced perfectly even with bigger hands. 5mp camera with flash produces nice pictures and with 720p video is top notch. I ditch my regular digital camera, and just bring the phone on trips.
Summary: I bought this phone and was happy with it.. everything worked and it looked amazing.. but when i got service for the phone everything worked good BUT the INTERNET... my internet speeds where Very Slow and didnt know why so i took it into a at&t store where we found only the phone DOES NOT work on USA 3g Networks.. If u want the phone to work in the U.S. than get the sk17a version.. the (a) means American version..
Nice Phone but only supports EDGE on T-Mobile in USA
127.0.0.1 "Zeldar", Amazon

Summary: This is a beautiful phone. I ordered it with plans to move to T-Mobile's $30 per month prepaid voice (100 minutes)/unlimited text/unlimited (5 Gigs) data plan. Both the phone and the TMo plan are great deals, but this phone doesn't support high-speed data on T-Mobile's (USA) network. Because it doesn't support UMTS band IV, it can only run at slow EDGE data rates on T-Mobile. I decided I couldn't live with that and sadly returned the phone.
Summary: In this price range, whatever the phone has to offer, it definitely exceeds expectations. It looks a little bad only when comparing to smart phones way above this price range. So you get all you penny's worth and much more.
Pros: Best in price range, awesome keyboard
Cons: Power button too small, need to update to 4.0
