Sony Xperia tipo Review

Sony isn’t as shy to go downmarket with Android as HTC used to be, and the Xperia tipo is a proud proof of that strategy. Codenamed as the Tapioca (we wish they kept the edible name), this is the first truly entry level Android from the Japanese. Has Sony managed to cram enough specs and wrap them up well not to count just on the brand to sell? Read on our review to find out…

MSM7225A is a ArmV7 SoC, with a Cortex A5 core, so it should be able to run flash.

this phone is way too expensive for its range. galaxy y and L3 are way cheaper as far as here in the philippines. even if it is already running ICS the price still is not justified.

galaxy y will get ics through xda, lg have a bad history with updates but they're getting there. but both phones have qvga screens so really the tipo is a better option because you'll have slightly better viewing angles.

Nicer Design than The Y and L3 i think many users will prefer this

Hi friends, I need your help. Actually, internet connection(wi-fi) has become very slow on my "sony xperia tipo dual" mobile. Last week, it was giving speed about 2 mbps. But currently, it's giving in bps(Byte per sec). I am not able to figure out, why it is happening? But when i checked internet speed on my friend's mobile (same sony mobile), there is no such issue. What is wrong with my handset? Please help.
