Sony X10 Mini Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson X10 Mini offers a brand new take on Android and we applaud Sony Ericsson for that; it’s a cute system that’s really easy to use. If you’re a hardcore Android fan, this isn’t the handset for you (you’d be better off checking out the X10) – but if you’re after a pocket-friendly handset and a little taster of Android goodness, you could do a lot worse.
Conclusion: Sony Ericsson has been brave to try to fit the extensive functionality of an Android smartphone into such a compact device. It hasn’t been a wholly successful exercise, but we like the way the Mini presents clean screens to flick through, directly launching the features you need.
Unboxing: Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini / Mini Pro
19 January 2011
Excerpt: didn’t quite fill your appetite, here’s a two-in-one unboxing for you: Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro. to its XPERIA line. Three short months later, SE decided to put the X10 under a shrink-ray to create the X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro. To say these Mini handsets are small is an understatement. The X10 Mini measures a scant 83mm tall and 50mm wide with its QWERTY packing brother being only slightly larger.
Summary: I like the X10 mini solely because it bucks the trend of giant, 4+-inch devices and is proof that if we can have big devices on the market, then we can have equally tiny devices. Having used the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 and X10 mini, I prefer the X10 mini. It's thin, light, and since it falls into the "small category," it's excluded from the "has to have Android 2.1, a big screen, and lots of power" mantra that's been defining wireless innovation this summer.
Pros: The X10 mini is speedy and lag-free, and is a cool device in a sea of huge superphones.
Cons: The screen resolution isn't great (given the size of the device), and battery life is short.
Quick review: Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Android mobile phone
16 August 2010
Conclusion: The new Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini is indeed a low end budget Android mobile which tries to portrait the success of its more advanced and mature relative, the Xperia X10. But as we have mentioned in this quick review, the X10 Mini does have several merits of its own, to its design, quality, feature and hardware .
Pros: Comfortable to hold, Scratch resistant surface, Quick and responsive, easy to use user interface, No compromise over connectivity options, Excellent camera function with dedicated camera key, 3.5 mm audio jack, Decent hardware specs for price range
Cons: Slow to start up / boot up, Plastic body, No multi-touch screen, Difficult to perform on-screen typing tasks, Non-removable battery
Conclusion: We can't give a final star rating to these two charming baby Android phones since Sony Ericsson wasn't able to provide us with ballpark pricing. Our guess is that they'll sell for $300 to $350 without a contract, and if that's the case, we give them a thumbs-up if you're looking for an incredibly pocketable Android smartphone.
Excerpt: We have already reviewed the Sony Ericsson X10 here at Geeky Gadgets, now it is time to take a look at another member of the Xperia X10 family, the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini. The Sony Ericsson X10 Mini is a scaled down version of the X10, it is considerably smaller than the original Xperia X10 measuring just 83mm by 50mm by 16, and weighing in at just 86g.
Conclusion: All in all, when looking at the X10 mini it’s all too easy to compare it with other ultra-expensive Android beasts like the HTC Desire, and looking at it in this way would make the little phone feel, well, second rate. However, this phone was never designed to compete with the big boys – that battle is being fought by the big X10. The X10 mini is much more budget minded and so its competition are actually phones such as HTC’s Tattoo or Nokia’s 5530.
