Tip of an iceberg Sony Xperia Tipo
Sony has been trying to make a mark in smart-phone market for quite some time now, and it is safe to say that it has succeed to a certain extent in the form of
its NXT series smartphones. The Xperia S,Ion,,Sola and U managed to impress and find their way into a lot of consumer’s pockets.
Now Sony has a small but pretty impressvie offering in the sub-10k smartphone market, in the form of Xperia Tipo.The design of Tipo is quite simple, with a
3.2-inch screen set in a metal bezel and three capacitive navigation soft keys, and a curved, plastic back panel.The panel may be plastic but the design and feel of
the back panel adds a little “premiumness” to the Tipo. The music apps inside and the sound quality is just as great as in Walkman series phones.
Xperia Tipo is powered by an 800 MHz CPU, which in our opinion wasn’t quite capable of supporting all of its apps and features. Because on the inside, it is filled
with a few “processor-sapping” features that other phones in its class don’t have. It is the only phone in our comparison chart that runs on Android version 4.0 ICS
(Ice Cream Sandwich). This makes the user interface very smooth and friendly. So while the UI is great some apps just freeze!!
Sony has also added its own Timescape UI, which has really deep Facebook integration. This feature will definitely pull a lot of younger customers towards the Tipo.
Moreover, the Tipo is dual-SIM variant, known as Tipo Dual. The only addition to this is a second SIM card slot inside the rear hatach. The battery can last for about
9 hours on a single charge, with regular surfing, texting/WhatApping and few voice calls.
Finally Tipo is a great phone for anyone who likes music on the go, and wants to make a style statement with a smartphone that fits the pocket, both in teams of
money and size.
LOVE : FB integration,smooth UI
HATE: slow texting, average processor
