Operating system, apps and widgets

The Xperia Pro Mini gets off to a good start by coming with the latest version of Android for mobile phones — version 2.3.3, or Gingerbread as it’s commonly known. There isn’t a huge difference between 2.2 and 2.3, but it’s always better to start with the newest version of the OS, as manufacturers have on the whole been quite slow to bring out OS updates for their phones. 2.3′s improvements include a slightly slicker user interface and much better text entry, thanks to the updated cut and paste features. .

Specs and performance

One of the first things you notice using the Mini Pro is its sheer speed. There’s no hanging around waiting for menus to appear and no jerky, sluggish animations. Everything moves along at a cracking pace. This is mainly due to the processor’s speed being upped from the 600MHz chip used in the X10 Mini Pro to a second-generation 1GHz Snapdragon processor. This is backed up by a fairly generous 512MB of RAM.

The phone has all the usual connectivity options, including HSDPA, wireless-n Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth 2.1. A DLNA media server means you can connect other devices in you

Battery life

Power comes from a 1,200mAh battery, which is pretty much the same capacity you’ll find on larger handsets. Unfortunately, the fast processor seems to be relatively power hungry, because battery life is certainly not one of the Mini Pro’s strong points.

Wi-Fi and other bugs

Wi-Fi is more problematic though, as reception was weaker than on most other smart phones we’ve used. It had problems retaining a signal in an upstairs bedroom when connecting to a router downstairs in a fairly standard London terraced house.


If the keyboard is hampered by the phone’s small size, the screen is even more of a compromise. Sony Ericsson has thankfully increased the screen size slightly from the X10, as this model has a 3-inch display, which is up from the 2.55-inch screen used on the X10 Mini Pro. The resolution has stayed the same, but at least at 320×480 pixels it’s relatively high for the screen size.

Video quality

Perhaps the biggest change on the camera front from the older X10 model is this handset now allows you to shoot video in high definition. Unfortunately this doesn’t stretch all the way to Full HD, topping out at 1,280×720 pixels, which is essentially 720p or normal HD.
