Sony Xperia miro review: You too

GSM Arena
18 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The Sony Xperia miro is made exactly by the book - just not sure whose book it is. It seems all major manufacturers have near identical offers in the Android low-end. And while Sony is only catching up, some makers have had the time to perfect the entry-level smartphone concept. To be fair to the Xperia miro though, it's on the spot considering the most recent competitors in this price range, and it looks no worse than most - however subjective that is.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band UMTS support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 3.5" 16M-color LED-backlit LCD capacitive touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480 pixels) at around 165 ppi, Android OS v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 800 MHz Cortex-A5 CPU, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7225A chipset, 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of inbuilt storage (2.2GB user available), microSD slot (32GB supported), 5 MP autofocus camera, single LED flashlight, geotagging, smile detection, tou...
  • Cons: Middling screen quality, Non-hot-swappable microSD slot, No hardware shutter key, No DivX/XviD support, Occasional lags in the user interface, Mediocre audio output

Sony Xperia Miro Review: In Depth

16 October 2012
  • Conclusion: At the budget price point, it can be difficult to work out what makes a good phone - something is always compromised to keep the costs down. The Miro excels in terms of multimedia and design. It also offers Android 4.0, a newer version of Android than the direct competition. It does however sacrifice on screen resolution and processor speed. This won't be too detrimental for most given the fact the Miro looks good and packs so much personality.
  • Pros: Quirky design, Good camera, Android 4.0, 2GB onboard storage
  • Cons: Low-resolution screen, Overloaded with widgets, Occasional UI stuttering, Mediocre call quality

Sony Xperia miro Review

Phone Arena
28 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Now that we've gone over its pros and cons, we can safely conclude that the Sony Xperia miro is worthy of bearing our seal of approval. It earned our sympathies with its responsiveness and decent main camera, which are features not often seen on low-end Androids. Yeah, it may have a screen of below average quality and its looks might be uninspiring, but it is better to hold on to an ugly, yet functional device, than a flashy smartphone that has the snappiness of a sloth.
  • Pros: Responsive interface, Takes good photos for its class, Compact
  • Cons: The screen is of below average quality, Web browser is laggy

Sony Miro ST23i. First Look

Mobile Review
18 June 2012
  • Summary: The Miro has no reception issues and the earphone is loud enough for most possible situations. The loudspeaker is also quite loud with some distortion in the maximum volume level. When I first saw the device I was just amazed by Sony’s continuous attempt to capitalize on the same design and the use of the same components for yet another phone.

Review: Sony Xperia Miro

12 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The Sony Xperia Miro is best smart phone in Sony’s Xperia series till date. Powered with BRAVIA Engine this phone is much better than others in this price range. The 800 MHz processor, 5 megapixels camera with LED flash and Android 4.0 ICS OS are its main key features that gives it edge over its competitors. But like other Sony phones this too has weak 512 MB RAM. The 3.5 inch screen size and its unique look will surely impress. So, we give this phone four star rating.
  • Pros: The Xperia Miro has got a attractive look and offers great 3.5 inch screen size. It runs on Android 4.0 ICS OS that fits best with the device.
  • Cons: The 512 MB weak RAM and 800 MHz processor fluctuate the browsing experience while swapping applications and multitasking.

Sony Xperia miro

4 February 2013
  • Conclusion: The miro available for around Rs 13,000 via online stores. No doubt, it comes with a nice design and sturdy build. However, its lacklustre performance is a deal-breaker. Therefore, if you're looking to purchase a Sony handset at this price point, it's wise to spend a grand more and pick up the Xperia go. Not only does it offers a faster processor and better camera, but also comes with a water-resistant body.
  • Pros: Sleek design; Sturdy build.
  • Cons: Touch response isn't up to the mark; Sluggish user interface; Mediocre sound quality.

Sony Xperia Miro

11 October 2012
  • Summary: The Sony Xperia Miro proves a neat mid-range handset that is hindered by its low-powered chip. The Android Ice Cream sandwich OS does not run smoothly, while surfing the net is stuttery. Look for a handset at the same price that includes a dual-core processor (the Xperia U for example).
  • Pros: Amazing battery life; neat design; Bright display
  • Cons: Juddery performance
