Conclusion: Overall I would recommend this phone to anyone who loves phones, wants to switch from something larger to something smaller or to the younger community who are maybe fed up with their blackberries etc.
Summary: The original X10 Mini Pro suffered at the hands of Sony Ericsson’s early attempts at skinning Android as well as being massively underpowered. The slideout QWERTY keyboard has now made a return in the form of the Xperia Mini Pro (minus the X10) and comes complete with improved processor, better screen, camera and all the other Android tricks Sony Ericsson has in its current handset lineup.
Pros: Very nice user interface skin, Facebook integration that’s not too intrusive, Usable web browser with Flash player support, Solid hardware with usable keyboard
Cons: Camera images exaggerate strong colours, 720p video output lacks detail, Filled with Sony promotional apps, Video codec support not extensive
Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro – a small and attractive smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard
5 October 2011
Excerpt: There are quite a lot of smartphones with a hardware QWERTY keyboard around, which is a very useful thing to have when you want to type a lot or edit some text, if not for the keys themselves, then at least for the d-pad or arrow keys that are always present (thank God) – for some reason, manufacturers decided that a big screen is a good replacement even for a D-pad and removed it, leaving only 3 or 4 Android navigation buttons and the user’s frustration when he tries to...
Conclusion: The real magic begins when you slide out the keyboard, which looks, for lack of a better word, cute. The first thing you’ll notice is that the keyboard is nicely spaced, with Function and Symbol keys to use the alternate keys. The full QWERTY keyboard also has complete Arabic keyboard layout as well.
Conclusion: With the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro , you'll surely succeed in being different. The tiny handset is indeed a looker, and it is such offerings that feel like a breath of fresh air in this crowded market. What we're happy about is that Sony Ericsson managed to upgrade the mini to a pretty decent 2011 smartphone, all the while preserving its characteristic looks.
Pros: Different, ultra-compact design, Very usable QWERTY keyboard, Custom UI full of little treats
Cons: Weak photo and video taking capabilities, Some physical buttons could be better
Sony Ericsson combines style and affordability with the new Xperia Mini and Mini Pro
18 May 2011
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson has always been known for creating high quality, stylish devices, and every one of their products, be it a TV, laptop or smartphone are kept at a high value by customers and the market itself. Their last couple of smartphones were pretty darn good, both functionality and style wise, but the drawback with creating high end products nowadays is that the niche is quickly getting oversaturated, especially with all the new high performance and relatively cheap...
Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro Review – Mini and Mighty
17 April 2011
Conclusion: Conclusions Do I like the X10 Mini Pro or what. You know Michael Bolton’s song with the lyrics, “Said I loved you but I lied… this is more than love I feel inside…”. The X10 gives me that feeling. Saying I like this smartphone is an understatement, but I will leave it at that.
Conclusion: Conclusions There are many other aspects of the Mini Pro that I haven’t touched in this mini-review. That is because this is not my full review yet. You can be sure that all bases will be covered in the full review.
