    Best Under 10k..

    First of all, i don't want to compare this sony phone with some plastic toys available with big screen and 1ghz processors..
    It's like comparing mercedes with maruti suzuki...LOL!!
    Sony,Samsung,Htc,LG,Motorola...thats enough,trust me guys you will regret sooner or later buying the others.


    1) It is the only smartphone under 12k having ICS.(As i told you earlier toys not considered..only smartphones).It is always good to have the latest platform.

    2)A good display with a pixel density...

    Hmmmmmmmmm,THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Guys this phone packs with the premium ANDROID ICS software,and comes with all that funky sony stuffs.

    The touchscreen is just mindblowing,the music is fabulous,camera is good but not the best.
    As always Sony does it, this boy comes in a premium sony design.
    Very comfortable in hands and I think 1gb internal storage for these kinds phones is more than enough.

    U get a micro sd card slot expansion for upto 32 gigs and Sony gets u an online storage of 50gb for lifetime.

    U also get an free scr...

    Specific absorption rate (SAR) is a measure of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic field. Now, Let me explain it more clearly for you :)

    It is something that denotes the exposure to RF. FCC analysed and fixed a specific MAXIMUM value of SAR which is permitted and the value is 1.6W/kg. And if you notice, SAR value for TIPO is 1.62W/kg which is exceeded the permissible limit.

    Just google the effect of radiation and importance...

    Just go for it!!

    About the phone: Well this phone is a steal for the price we get it. Android ICS, great speaker output, good feel while holding in the hand and great battery life.
    About Sony: I hear people still saying that Sony is not good at mobiles because of the joystick and keypad problems they had with the old generation Sony Ericsson phones. But believe me guys, the XPERIA range is in a separate league of its own. No flaws here. In-fact these phones have one of the best touch screens among all. So go ...

    Absolute Nightmare..

    I bought my sony xperia tipo off flipkart as soon as it came out, as I was extremely excited about it. It is my first smartphone. I bought a 32gb San Disk MicroSD card too since i like my music and sitcoms.
    Anyway, it worked absolutely beautifully for about 4 weeks or so when it suddenly started giving me huge problems.. The phone would hang once everyday, which could be solved temporarily by taking out the battery, placing it back and turning it on, but after a week my it completely gave up ...

    Great phone - just don't get the white one

    As others have mentioned this is a great phone - very loud speaker, 800Mhz processor, ICS out of the box, nice display (180ppi has decent clarity) and looks good.

    The battery is 1500mAh so it lasted me more than one day (I don't use too much internet) and overall it feels good in the hand.

    Of course the processor is not dual-core or anything fancy, so sometimes you will notice a slight lag - but for this price (
