This is a very good phone!

Hi everybody!
I'm going to tell you what are my impressions for the phone !
Firstly the processor is very fast thanks to it 1GHz and 512 RAM.Also the multitouch is working great , the screen is very responsive and the proximity sensor and Light sensor are really good .
The Reality display of the device is very realistic and with beautiful colors .
The HD recording and picture quality is great and also with realistic colors thanks to Mobile Bravia Engine .
The Speaker of the device is very loud and clear thanks to xLOUD.
The Browsing experience is very good and also the browser supports Adobe Flash 11.0 .
Call quality is good and there are 2 microphones , one for noise cancellation and second for talking.
Gaming experience is very good thanks to Adreno 205 booster . I bought the Asphalt 6 for Desire Z(In youtube one man told me that Asphalt 6 for Desire Z will run on Xperia mini and It really runs on it)and the graphics are really smooth.

I can just say this phone is excellent in everything and especially in having good UI. I can't rate its build quality a good amount just because of it's so sensitive, many of this kind of phone just have Overheat problem that is solved now. Video recording is just excellent but Photo capturing is poor I think. User Interface is amazing, although all of sony and sony ericsson phones have amazing UI.
Lets talk about Display; I can say the best Display I've ever seen, the display is as excellent as phones like Xperia S!
One of other pros is its SD card location, you won't need to take the battery out to remove or mount SD card.
And.. Internet.. Internet is a very important thing for me even on the phone. Let me be honest, I can't enjoy internet and surf in it easily; the display size isn't big enough and I have trouble with surfing in net.
Let me give a summary about other things:
Battery is good, multimedia is good, call quality is very good, .. .

Build quality 8/10 It is so sensitive and also many ones of this phone have overheat issue!
Reception 9/10 That's good.
Call quality 9/10 I didn't have any special problems.
Internet 7/10 It's not good in Internet because of its small display size.
Multimedia 8/10 It was just okay.
Camera 9/10 I just gave it 9 because of its photo capturing, else I would give it 10 because of its amazing Video recording.
UI speed 10/10 I just enjoyed its UI, it's excellent.
Everyday usage 9/10 Nothing special.
Text input 6/10 It had a bad keyboard, so bad.
Display 10/10 It was just outstanding.
Battery 9/10 I didn't have any special problems with battery, but it doesn't have a very good battery.
