Key Feature of Sony Xperia x10 Mini

  • Miniature Android
  • Escape the Timescape
  • Portable powerhouse
  • Camera
  • Smart Energy Saving Plus



If you are looking to switch to an Android platform, X10 mini is the phone. Though the phone is powered with an older version 1.6 but it can still handle most the modern day application after doing OTA software upgrade to android 2.1.

Miniature Android

The Mini is the follow-up to Sony Ericsson’s first Android phone, the Xperia X10. The Mini feels like the X10 snapped in half, but it has many of the same features, as it also runs version 1.6 of the Android operating system, expandable upto 2.1.

Sony Ericsson has tweaked the user interface to suit the 64mm (2.5-inch) screen. For example, the on-screen Qwerty keyboard has been ditched in favour of an alphanumeric keypad. That means you’ll never be able to text as quickly on the Mini as you will on most other smart phones. But, considering the size of the phone, the keypad is well designed.

Escape the Timescape

We’re not as impressed with the Timescape feature, which is one of Sony Ericsson’s flagship apps. Timescape brings together your Twitter and Facebook updates, as well as missed calls and texts, into a zippy timeline that you flick through with a finger

The Mini doesn’t offer the X10′s Mediascape feature, which shows the videos, photos and music on your phone. But it does have an ‘infinity button’ in its music player app that loads related content from YouTube and Play Now, Sony Ericsson’s music store.

Behind the times
Because Sony Ericsson has tweaked the Android OS for the Mini, it’s fallen behind the breakneck Android update schedule. Consequently, the Mini is running Android 1.6, rather than the latest version, 2.2. That won’t make much difference to most people, especially if you’ve never used the newer version of Android, because you can still download apps and use Google features like Gmail and Maps.

Portable powerhouse

The Mini has Wi-Fi and A-GPS on-board, and it also has HSPA for fast Web surfing over 3G. There’s only a paltry 128MB of built-in memory, which could be an issue if you’re installing loads of apps. But, for storing music, video and other files, you can slap in a microSD memory card of up to 16GB. The phone we tested came with a 2GB card, as well as some snazzy, interchangeable back covers.

End user review

Good mini powerhouse phone with almost all new age features and excellent touch screen experience. However, lack of autofocus and flash doesn’t make it a good camera device. Also, processor speed isn’t exciting either. Overall a good buy for first time Android user but you would surely upgrade to better phone within 6 month of buying this phone.
