Summary: The screen is terrible on this phone. It was unlocked and I was able to connect it to service but trying to actually use it was a nightmare. You literally have to turn your fingers white pressing so hard to get it to work. When you try hit "2", it would dial a 7 instead. Trying to type a text message was impossible. I would never recommend this phone to anyone.
Foreign names and numbers in the contact list. BEWARE.

Summary: Where do we start with this Xperia Tipo? Definitely not new. Was advertised as new. Deep scan located several foreign names and numbers in the contact list that had not been thoroughly erased. It appeared as new, yet where did those names come from? Camera. Very few features. Poor, very poor, long shots, forget zoom as all attempts result in a terrible image. Naturally, no flash. Surprisingly, video was not overly bad, not good, just not terrible.
Summary: This phone is a generic phone not original as described on Amazon site by vendor I bet Sony will be sad to see this product market under its name. While it is hard for Amazon to vet the quality of items the sellers should have more credibility and responsible on the items sold from their stores or outlet. Very very discouraging to spend 100 plus USD for no service, please be aware of this fake Sony phone.
Summary: I bought this phone as an android alternative to my iPhone. Unfortunately it has restored my faith in Apple products. The Sony's screen is fragile and the phone is slow and frustrating. Very disappointed.
Summary: This phone is of horrible quality. Sometimes it won't let me make a call. Other times it won't let me hang up a call. There are too many times when I have to power it down and then back up because it says I'm not connected to my network provider. Which causes the contacts to be unavailable for about 10 minutes. Then there are those precious times when during a phone call it will hang up on its own and then disconnect with my network. Just love that. NOT!
Summary: The screen does not respond most of the times i touch it, takes me forever to try and send an sms or even answer a call, i miss halve of them. Customer service was rude and not helpful, sent it in and they did not fix the problem. Dont waste your money.
Summary: As a smartphone this product is useless due very unreponsive touchscreen. In typing there is almost 1 second delay. I would return it immediatelly, but unfortunatelly there is return policy in the store I bough this from.
Summary: At first glance this seems like a nice little phone. It is on the small side (which some people might like) but that does make typing harder. The screen doesn't have the best viewing angles but for the price you get a snappy little phone running Android 4 ICS. The bad news: Sony has already said they don't plan on updating this phone to Android 4.1 JB so don't expect any updates.
