Sony X10 Mini Pro Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Excerpt: Just when we thought Sony Ericsson had lost its mojo it releases the X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro. Not only are these phones small but they also run Android. If small is beautiful then Sony Ericsson might be on to something special. You can pick up the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro in various colours for free on a monthly contract.
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
Conclusion: If you want a compact smartphone with a comfortable landscape QWERTY keyboard that can be used for text editing and document creation on the go, the Xperia Mini Pro is your best bet, especially at the low price its selling worldwide, with or without a contract.
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
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini and Mini Pro will be available in the third quarter of 2011 – a bit late to the party, and who knows what competition it will have. However, with its wild look and great Facebook integration, I’m sure it’ll find its buyers.
Conclusion: Overall, the Sony Ericsson Mini Pro is a fantastic smartphone for those on a tighter budget. The compact form factor is appealing, and the keyboard means you'll be able to write longer messages and emails in comfort. The small screen means it's not quite so good when watching movies, however.
Pros: Take the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro out of its box, and the first thing you'll notice is the compact design. After handsets like the Xperia Arc, it feels absolutely tiny, although it is a relatively thick little smartphone (about twice thick thickness of an Xperia Arc). The compact design feels great in the hand though, and it fits easily into pockets. The 3-inch touchscreen is fine for most uses. You can fit plenty of icons on the home screen, and reading text mes...
Cons: The Xperia Mini Pro's small form factor means that the top row of the keyboard sits alongside the edge of the screen surround. This means users with large thumbs may have accessibility issues with the top row of keys – although it's fine for most people. The screen can also feel cramped compared to most modern smartphones, although the intelligent use of icons – with different apps grouped into folders and then placed in the corners of the home screen – means you soon...
Excerpt: Just about a month ago, we took a look at the Sony Xperia X10 Mini. Although the phone boasted of some really nifty features, that too for a smartphone of its size, it did fall short of a few expectations. The Xperia X10 mini pro, which was only released very recently, shows a few improvements over its predecessor. Here’s a closer look. Form Factor Let 'QWERTY' Join The Party.
