Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini video: Hands-on

 

We take a look at the smallest Android that has HD video smarts

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini review

 

Slightly larger but still tiny, is 2011's Android update a big winner?

Superb user interface additions ; Clever Facebook integration ; Good web browser with Flash support ; Good quality display

Still photos lack some detail ; Colour is exaggerated ; 720p videos lack detail ; Limited video codec support ; Slightly higher price

Before the arrival of Sony's Ericsson's new Xperia Mini, the X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro were an odd little couple, launching in mid-2010 with Android 1.6 and a bespoke and heavily-customised user interface on top.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Review

 

Credit to Sony Ericsson for cramming so many features into such a tiny handset. For once small, doesn't mean less.

With the Xperia Mini, Sony Ericsson has created a handset that is small without compromising on features. Sure its compact form factor won't appeal to everyone, but connectivity is excellent and Sony Ericsson has included enough extra features to...

Sony Ericsson Xperia mini

 

Just like its Xperia X10 Mini predecessor, Sony Ericsson's new-and-improved Xperia Mini is tiny. This time round, however, it's promised to be packed full of high-end features, including an HD camera and a Reality Display. Can Sony Ericsson prove that...

Unlike its predecessor, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini is tiny handset that doesn't compromise on features. Although it's unlikely to appeal to everyone, those after a compact smartphone with high-end features need look no further.

Sony Ericsson Xperia mini review: Small is the new big

 

It comes in a small package but has power to spare. Lovely little phone, assuming you can keep up with it. The Sony Ericsson Xperia mini is a full-fledged smartphone and you'll need to be at ease with its multiple identities. But it's not moping around...

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 3" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480), Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine ; Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread ; 1 GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU,...

No smart dialing ; No front-facing camera ; Loudspeaker performance is a mixed-bag ; No DivX/XviD support ; Typing a bit tricky on the smallish screen ; Doubtful video recording quality

Sony Ericsson Xperia mini Review

 

Ultra-compact smartphones may not be as popular as their large-screened counterparts, but that doesn't mean there isn't a nice, cosy place in the market for them, be it a bit smaller. At least, that's what Sony Ericsson tries to convince us in, by...
