    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...

    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...

This device precisely sufficed my requirements.

    After two weeks of usage here is my review about Sony Xperia Tipo dual. Sony has finally managed to enter the entry level android mobile se...

    Simply Superb!!! True VFM :)

    I have been using this phone since 7 days. As mentioned by one of the reviewer, this phone is 'dual standby', that means, it can receive calls on both the SIM cards, but while making a call or sending SMS, one needs to switch. Even this switch is pretty easy, a dedicated button is provided or you can do this switch through an settings option as well.
    As far as features, biggest factor for me to go with this phone is android 4.0 and internal memory of around 3gb. I don't think you can get thes...
