Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Review

Posted on 28 March 2010

Just as the name depicts, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini is a smaller version of the Xperia X10. But it is not like what Nokia did with the N97 mini. Sony Ericsson has made some huge changes, making the X10 mini one of the tiniest handsets that have come out till now.

However, smaller size does have its disadvantages as well. The screen of X10 mini is quite small, just 2.55 inches with QVGA resolution. But the image quality has not been compromised, making the display seem great together with the capacitive touch technology. The software has also been transformed making it easy to use on a screen that small.
The 5MP camera also has autofocus and an LED flash, and gives good results.

Thus as a whole, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini is a very attractive little smartphone. It’s incredibly small size may be hard to hold with bigger male hands, but we cannot consider it as a lady phone.

The phone uses the personalized Android interface created by Sony Ericsson, called UX, which has been changed in order to be easy to use on the 2.55-inch screen.

The UX interface provides better user experience by modifying Android’s appearance and adding other social and online services through the Timescape and Mediascape applications. This enables you to see a combined view of the latest Facebook and Twitter updates, along with your messages and missed calls, automatically refreshing after every 15 minutes.

Due to the small display, each page of the home screen can only have one widget, but this isn’t a big problem as there are only 5 widgets in total.

Overall, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini is a cute and fast phone offering multiple functionality. Moreover, the X10 mini supports OpenGL ES 1.1 content, so most probably it will get some decent app support.
It is expected that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and mini pro will arrive in the market in the second quarter of the year. However, the price has not been disclosed as yet.
