You need to be bolder in your criticism. This is a big-brand smartphone hiding obsolete technology. It is not a good medium-term investment and seems designed to trap people into being so dissatisfied that they upgrade after a year or two.
A weak, out-of-date idea of what 'budget' means and another symptom of the problem some handset vendors have grasping that Android is moving away from this model.
Sony Xperia Tipo are the best all time smartphones, GPS & others
You didn't mention the possibility of this being a teenager's phone.It's an affordable way to get your small typing fingered youngster a smart phone without breaking the bank. And not everyone judges everything against the best kit on the market.So far my daughter is thrilled with her Tipo and I'm not unimpressed myself.
htc wildfire s and sony tipo which one better???
whut's wrong with tipo? the camera is still nice and i don't find anything bad about it, it's just small. it's good as 2nd phone
After having my Sony Xperia tipo for only three weeks, I can say that I was thoroughly satisfied with all of the phone's abilities and features until the screen stopped working as it was meant to. I can't use the keyboard in either landscape or portrait mode without having to shift one to the other in order to use all the keys, while some keys (to switch OFF the keyboard, for instance) won't work in either mode. It's even getting to the point where the slide to activate the phone in either phone or camera mode takes seven or eight swipes to have it register. Don't ask me about it starting and quitting apps without me pressing anything, either.I'd love this phone... if it worked the way it did out of the box... for more than, say, a year, instead of two and a half weeks.
You do have warranty, don't you? If so, why won't you RMA it? It comes with a 24-months warranty (at least in Poland).
its good for the price :)
i think according to cost in india tipo is best......
It's worthless. I bought this phone in december and it worked completely fine for a month. Then it's touch started getting very bad and now texting and what's apping has become such a big headache and it takes forever because of the really slow touch.
Some days ago my wife was given a new, Sony Xperia Tipo, by a working colleague. she has an iphone 5 and I have Galaxy S III. Before I got the Tipo up and running, I checked out Google and came across the Trusted Reviews, well, review. The TR review didn't have a lot of praise for the Tipo.
I've been using the S III for quite some time. Although it's one of the best smart phones out there and performs very well, I've always found it awkward to hold and didn't care for its flimsy design. I was always in fear of dropping it. To me its size and design made it impractical. Quite frankly I wish I had never bought it.
After getting the Tipo set up, I wasn't expecting much, but since using it for the last few days, I've been surprisingly pleased. The "low" screen resolution is quite adequate and pleasing. The Koi live wallpaper fish are happily swimming around and are quite vivid. I have all of the same aps that I had on the Galaxy and they all respond well. I have made and received phone calls and the sound hasn't been "iffy", but quite good. The sound emanating from the Tipo while watching Live Station or hearing the ring tone, is in my opinion, better than the Galaxy III.
I found the camera to be quite adequate and of far better picture quality than those shown in the TR review. Neither have I noticed any of the "blur" mentioned in the review. Messaging in the first place sucks on any phone and more so on the Tipo, because of the tiny keyboard. So, I use one of those rubber tipped pens used on tablets.
All in all a nifty little phone phone that is responsive and practical, at least for me. Some may call it a teenager's phone, but I'm 66 years old and like it. I don't need to impress others with my phone. As for the Galaxy III, my wife has taken it over, as she's always had her eye on it and is quite a bit younger than I am.
For me, the touch screen is too sensitive. It doesn't respond when I touch and does respond when I don't think I touched any bottom. I will probably return this phone.
i am going to buy sony tipo r else nokia lumia 520 which is good
I am a couple of years older than you. I also have a Galaxy S4 and an Xperia Tipo. I agree on all you say, and I can add that the sound on Tipo is even better that on the S4. Furthermore, the S4 is a battery hog, no matter what the specifications say and very bad in week signal areas; not so with Tipo, the battery lasts and it even works better than most other phones on that week signal areas (same carrier).
After installing patch to fix the problem, the touch screen got normal! Now I found that it works with google voice input, I am completely satisfied with the small light-weighted phone. it works with bluetooth headphone, too.
