O2 Xda II Mini

 

Achieving the right balance between size and functionality has long been the challenge with smartphones. O2 has just about got that balance right with...

The small size, fast processor and large screen

Lack of native Wi-Fi support

O2 Xda II mini

 

This hybrid device is O2's attempt at finding the right balance between the functionalities of a Pocket PC and the comfortable size of a cellphone. TAN KIT HOONG reviews the O2 XDA II mini triband smartphone.

Most importantly, however, is the comfortable size of the mini and the fact that it doesn't sacrifice much in terms of features despite the miniaturisation.

Not too great for a Sony Ericsson

 

The battery life on this phone is terrible, as is the bluetooth ability. Difficult/almost impossible to send items such as videos, photos and songs via bluetooth which is a disappointment.

O2 Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro Mobile Phone

 

Bought as xmas present for my 13 yr old daughter. She likes it and the pink back is a very nice touch. A bit too complicated for me to work, but it's not mine. Needs charging every other day though!
