Okay. Seriously. How about a decent review already of Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro MK16i/MK16a (SE Iyokan)? Thank you very much.

apple, samsung and htc all are already looking beyond dual core phones and sony ericsson just release these single core phones! no wonder sony ericsson is losing money and market share. their way too slow. hope sony now without ericsson will be faster to introduce new phones.

I had the normal experia arc before my sg 2 and It had plenty of power, tbh my gf uses that phone now and its a lot better than my galaxy 2 in a lot of ways. form factor is one. and belive it or not i like the ui better too. movies play better on the galaxy2 tho, hence why i bought that one.
Stylish as hell too, slim and sleak vs the galaxy lego block style

in my opinion SE makes the best looking smartphone around.

The Neo V is an xperia neo with a downgraded camera???
The original Neo was on my wish list because I didn\'t think I would have enough dough to get a dual-core phone when they came.
In terms of single-core phones though, these can\'t be beat. I love the UI on the new SE phones!
If only the Xperia Arc S had a 1.5GHz S3 or TI OMAP4470 chip then It\'d be like the ultimate smartphone.

A single core? Really? Ugh... I was hoping for a higher end phone from Sony than that.
Still waiting on a dual-core Xperia Play.

Sony Ericsson should start making phones with pentaband 3G if the wana sell it on their online store here in the u.s...the both phones only works on at&t 3G band which is pathetic and hence the be poor sales cos it is focused on only one network....

Nothing wrong with these xperias. and with people banging on about dual core dual core, remember they are battery eaters but really I have had my neo v for 3 months and its a flying machine, really fast and i can multi task easily on it. The HDMI is amazing, you can pick up a cheap cable for next to nothing and have it on your HD tv!!! I do like the SGS2 too but it gets expensive for the features i need from the neo v (ie for HDMI you need to buy a Samsung adapter then a cable to get it to work on your TV!)
I have done a quick review on here and see for yourself. As for the camera, of course not as good as the neo but its heaps better than than iphone 4 and still shoots HD video. For the price I think it is best reasonable priced phone out there and you get heaps more for your money!
p.s. its gorgeous in white!!!
