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: 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: As far as fun phones go, with the Xperia X10 Mini there’s never a dull moment. It’s petite and ready to party. Take a closer look. Form Factor Here’s what I liked – it’s small and easy to operate with just one, hand and comfortable to hold thanks to the 'Human Curvature' form. The 2.5-inch (240 x 320 pixels) capacitive touchscreen is scratch resistant. It’s lightweight and can fit just about anywhere.
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini is something of a surprise package. It is a tiny phone, but offering the Android operating system brings with it the convenience of a handset that can be easily customised. You don't get short-changed on the hardware front either: you still have your essential hardware covered.
Pros: Compact, affordable, hardware spec, custom UI makes it usable
Cons: Doesn't really excel in any area, apart from size, appeal might be limited by the lack of space for browsing, media and keyboard use, Timescape a little limited in scope
