    The 3.2" LCD screen has pixel dimensions of 320x480. The display is reasonably bright, and the sharpness is good too. On the flip side, the panel's viewing angles and sunlight legibility don't quite make the mark. The phone is powered by a modest 800 MHz CPU, and it has 512 MB of RAM. Here are the... Read more

    There are other handsets like Karbonn A7 and Spice Mi-355 with the same specs (800 MHz + Adreno 200 GPU) for a much cheaper price. But for those who believe in the Sony Brand, the Tipo is here, with single or Double SIM options. Do note that the Xperia Tipo (Single / Dual) does not come with a... Read more

    The Sony Xperia Tipo is truly a compact smart phone in Sony’s Xperia series. It has its own fixed target audience but this phone is much better than others in this price range. Its 800 MHz processor, 3.2 megapixels camera and Android 4.0 version are its main key features that gives it edge over its... Read more

    The entry-level Android space has only recently become rife with excitement as the newer models are actually something worth considering. When Android first started out, the cheaper variants were nothing but horrid and you wouldn’t want to go anywhere near a handset that was priced under 10K. That’s... Read more

    It is great indeed to find an Android 4.0 phone at such low-cost from a popular mobile maker.This is Sony’s first attempt at making a dual sim phone and the company has done a pretty good job with the tipo dual. The battery life is decent, but since it is a Dual SIM phone talk time is less than the... Read more
