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.

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...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...

Good dual SIM Phone

I bought this phone after originally contemplating Karbonn A5. Let me summarize the pros and cons

Good touch response
Sony PC companion makes transferring data from PC very easy
Good Speaker
Very good call and voice clarity
Sensor with blue blinking light for missed calls
Sony Smart Connect app is very good to create smart connections (you can create a profile to silence calls from 11 PM to 7 AM for example - check it out)
Good battery life and fast charging (less than 2 hours to fully ...

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...

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.


(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...

Its decent ... not outstanding

I have just graduated from a normal no frills phone onto an android phone. Its a good phone, however, I'm not that impressed by two things specially.
1. The keypad is small and I find it difficult to type.
2. The screen is non responsive sometimes. There is truth in some of the posts here about there being something wrong with the screen bit. I will take it to the service center and get it checked.
3. I went crazy trying to get my phone contacts from my old phone onto this one. I finally tra...

An Excellent Product from SONY!

It has been one and half year I have been using this phone and I truly appreciate the Engineers of SONY team for fantastic and simple design interface.
The phone works charms with 80+ install application including games.
Also it is very handy to use and cheap at cost.
The only con I feel is about the Storage memory else it is a masterpiece under 6k.
