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 unleashing the successor of its last year super-mini, the Xperia X10 mini. The new model is identically named, except for the dropped “X10” part.

But how has the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini changed, in order to cater to this year's user requirements? Well, we guess the manufacturer has made the right moves by upping the screen size a bit, to 3”, as well as installing a faster, 1GHz processor. Is this enough to make the Xperia mini a worthy challenger in the mid-range Android space? Let us explore that!
In the box you'll find:
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia mini
  • Wall charger with detachable microUSB cable
  • MH410 GreenHeart handsfree
  • 2GB microSD card
  • Additional back cover in different color
  • Lots of papers


This is where the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini should shine. The handset is designed to be stylish and compact, and it's safe to say that the goal has been achieved. We have the all-black variant, but there are also all-white, as well as black with a blue or pink back cover for a fresher styling. While we found the Xperia mini pro (the QWERTY-enabled variant of the mini) a bit chubby, the Xperia mini's measures render it slightly more tolerable to wear in a pocket. In addition, it is the perfectly-sized handset to be carried in a handbag, given its very compact dimensions.
