Sony Xperia Tipo Review

Mobile phone companies base their mobile phones on the target audience that will potentially buy them. This is why every company that comes up with a highly technological and advanced smart phone also produces a slightly cheaper, yet filled with latest features mobile phone for the masses out there. In Sony, that phone is the Sony Xperia Tipo.

Tiny would be the right word to describe what this phone looks like. Much like the other Xperia phones launched by Sony, this one is also slim and smart but also small, with the typical fine glass finishing on the front and a smooth back finish. Xperia Tipo has dimensions of 13 x 57 x 13 mm and a light weight of 99.4 grams; this makes it easy to fit in anywhere. Its display screen is 3.2inches small yet comes with a TFT capacitive touch screen with multi touch of up to 2 fingers and scratch resistant protective glass. The resolution of the display is comparatively less at 320 x 480 pixels, but to be fair so is the price tag.

As luck would have it, the affordable Sony Xperia Tipo comes with an Android OS v4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. This brings up the credibility of the phone by miles, even though its Chipset and CPU are a little less advanced at Qualcomm MSM7225AA and 800 MHz Cortex-A5 respectively. Data storage on the other hand is not at all an issue in this phone with an internal memory of 2.9 GB, 512 MB RAM accompanied with an external memory card slot.

High connectivity wouldn't generally be expected from lower priced phones but this inexpensive almost smart phone comes with support for 2G and 3G networks; along with GPRS, EDGE, WLAN, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a micro USB port. Even though the connectivity of the phone isn’t as fast or great as of a higher price range Sony Xperia models, yet the availability of these features gives Xperia Tipo an edge over it competitors.

Since the phone isn't built as a multimedia phone, it lacks behind in its display, video and audio abilities. However, it still comes with a primary camera of 3.15 mega pixel with geo tagging and VGA video support. Radio, GPS, and Java support are amongst other features which increase the entertainment level of the Xperia Tipo. There is support of different types of audio formats which makes the phone able to play most audio file types.

The phone comes in a variety of great colors including Classic Black, Classic White, Deep Red, and Navy Blue. However, the phone is not just a good looker; it also performs well for its user interface and does not lag behind. The Sony Xperia Tipo is an overall great phone that offers a great deal of features in such a small price.
