Sony PC companion makes transferring data from PC very easy
Good Speaker
Very good call and voice clarity

Xperia Tipo...another masterpiece

Xperia Tipo Dual, cousin of Xperia Tipo is an outstanding creation released by Sony for the people who want to buy Android phones at an affordable rate. Of course people who want to use Dual-Core ones won't like the specification of this elegant and eductive masterpiece. My suggestion to them is: Before they superciliously reject this phone, they must know, not many people could shell out 25 thousand Quids to buy a smartphone and there are less fortunate ones who want to own an Android device...

Best dual sim phone yet !...

1. Its a dual standby.. means,, when u r using one sim to make phone call/ using GPRS the other sim gets off.
SIM switch button is just awesome feature.Very easy to switch between sim's.
2. 3G is supported on both sim's but not at a single time.. i.e if u r using 3G on SIM1 den you can use only GSM mode on other.You can always switch d preferred sim for using 3G anytime.
3. Phone memory is 754MB+2.15GB i.e phone only(like whatsapp, GO sms) apps can be installed only in this 754MB space(Thi...

Xperia Tipo Dual... Fantastic

Who the hell here telling that it is not a dual standby mobile set? It is a dual sim standby mobile handset (Not dual active) means that the mobile phone can receive calls in sim 1 or in sim 2 in standby mode. The sim switch is there for you to decide which sim you r going to use for the outgoing calls and for the internet. Thats it.. I think I have cleared your doubts. I have purchased this set and using it for 3 days.

do not bet your money here!

Everything looked fine on paper and hand for the first 2-3 weeks, and then the torture started. The touch went haywire and it will make you mad. When i took it the service center .. there were 6 other desperate tipo owners, hitting their heads for touch and echo problems. Re-calibrated (software) its touch but the troubles returned after another week .. then they got its hardware changed. Service center ppl said it was a flaw in the first batch and things have been all corrected .. and the n...

After using 45 Days

First of all I would like to say that I am using this tipo dual since 45 days. So all my review is based on that.
Pros:
1. The first thing that came in mind when I purchased this is that I am getting a Xperia series phone in 10k! I have thought about other Indian models from micromax, karbonn etc. but this phone gives me a kind of feeling of branded phone and not like some chinese re-branded phone. Also if I have purchased some micromax,karbonn etc. models then I may find myself ashamed in ta...

Xperia Tipo Dual - Good phone

Hi EveryBody,

I bought this phone a couple of days back and I would like to share few merits and de-merits regarding this phone.

Merits:

(1) The battery back up is very good compared to other Android mobiles. After charging the mobile to full 100%, I used continuously for internet browsing and watched youtube & daily motion videos for 4 hours. Then also the battery level is discharged to 65%. i.e., still there is 35% of battery back up.

Also note that the charging time is too fast. I...
