Excerpt: Nice phone ,when use app then it more hanging and speed slow... Now i dont use facebook and dont use backup and restore ,only simple work on internet explore, camera is ok and bettery nice when not connected internet....
Summary: "Good: With a £10 32GB microSD card this has replaced my iPod. With Poweramp music player, Spotify, RadioPlayer and PodTrapper I am sorted for the tube journey to work. Runs every app I have thrown at it very smoothly. ICS utilities for data, text and battery monitoring very good. Small size makes it nicely pocketable. Battery life is amazing on standby. Barely uses any charge overnight. Incredible value for money! Not so good: Small screen makes keyboard use fiddly.
Excerpt: First, the touchscreen is really bad and slow rensponsive. But, the phone is cheap and it is in your budget. The main problem is the Touchscreen!Touchscreen!Touchcreen!. Anyways, its good for playing games and for browsing. Also, the loudspeaker is very good!
Excerpt: Typing is hard because of the small screen and the letter is quite near to each other too The internal memory is only 2.9 GB but ofcourse you can use a micro SD card up to 32 GB.Touchscreen sometimes doesn't response .
Touchscreen problem and poor warranty service by sony
Bikash, Phone Arena
5 November 2012
Excerpt: I have a xperia tipo whose touchscreen became faulty. I bought it on 21st september and gave it to the service center on 8th october nd never got the phone back till now(6th Nov). Whenever I ask them they say that the faulty part has to be replaced and it has not arrived yet. How long is it going to take they have no idea. What am I supposed to do now??? this is really frustrating... jst wasted my rs9500, poor poor sony service...
Excerpt: Hello, it is really a nice phone than I expected, its competitors are not entry level smartphones but mid range phones, see its OS (Android 4.01), excellent sound qualily, good looking, good screen resolution (180 PPI). Many programes runs in it at a time well, the only problem I felt; it heats up when it works in slower networks like GPRS/EDGE though it works cool in wifi/3g networks.
Summary: i had this phone for over a year and a half withen the first 3 weeks of me having phone half of screen and main buttons had stopped working brought it back and they had replaced it screen on phone horrible now it has happen again just watch out
Summary: I got my Tipo a year ago and its been through hell and back with no real damage or change in performance. Indeed it has worked in some situations that the market leaders have failed. My case in point is that my sister got an i-phone 5 not long ago and dropped it 2ft to the ground and it smashed. I dropped the tipo Im writing this review on out of a 1st floor window and it barely made a mark even without a cover.
