Sony Xperia tipo Review
phone is ringing in the next room, or in your purse, for instance.
The 1500mAh battery is about the standard capacity for an entry level phone, and is quoted for 4.5 hours of talk in 3G mode, and 30 hours of music playback. The standby times are very good, as the phone can rest in a low-powered state for more than a month this way.
The Sony Xperia tipo is a very decent foray in the world of entry level Androids. It has the performance and stability of Android Ice Cream Sandwich going for it, as well as a pleasant to hold, and comfortable to operate with one hand chubby chassis with soft touch plastic on the back.
The handset’s basic hardware won’t make it suitable for power users, but it will handle your everyday Android tasks sufficiently, and on top of that it functions very well as a phone, with a loud and clear earpiece, and a potent loudspeaker. A notable downside is the camera quality, which is pretty weak both in terms of pictures, and as the VGA video goes.
Still, the Sony Xperia tipo is in the same price range as the Samsung Galaxy Y, or the LG Optimus L3, and has about the same capabilities, yet sports a better screen resolution and more internal memory. It also has a more distinct design with the “waterfall” effect of the front.
Software version of the reviewed unit: Android 4.0.4, Build 11.0.A.0.16
