I got the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini for my birthday and I was quite happy because I prefer smaller phones. I was happy with it for a while, although when you are writing a text it is quite hard to read through because the screen is so small! Anyway, I liked it until it made the music stop playing halfway through a song! What happens is it is playing a song, quite normally, but then it stops playing it. I look on my phone and see that it says it is still playing it in the little bar at the... (read more)

To be clear from the start, I've rated this phone as having terrible reception, but the rating is based on 3 network coverage - on that basis there almost certainly isn't a phone on the market that I'd have rated as good, so I guess you need to reference other reviews to get balance on that opinion. So, to the features that aren't affected by a lousy network. Design and styling are nice, but enforce some limits on the overall functionality of the phone - it's small, so it has a small low...

The screen touch is slow, calls hang up as im trying to slide the recieve. Just annoying. The camera on its normal setting is POOR and camera shake is always visible. Not happy with this at all. Great for looks, handy in your pocket but just some really annoying faults on everyday usage. (read more)

I've had the xperia x10 mini for 3 months now and so far it is very good.
I have found the menus very intuitive and, once I figured out how to use the keypad during a phone call (for those wonderful call centre options) a very simple system all around.
The camera is of good enough quality but it can't stand up next to a stand alone camera with a proper lens.
It's connectivity is superb - signal is much better than any phone I have had (on 3), the 2 widgets I have put on my top pages... (read more)

This phone seemed like a great idea. Its small and should do everything I need it to. Actually, it probably does, but just very badly. Battery life is very poor - 1 day max! The processor is slow, and often takes a while to react to the touchscreen... It often doesn't connect properly when I dial out, its difficult to use, I'm not sure it always rings when called... Next time I'll pay the extra and buy an I-phone. (read more)

My sister bought the Xperia X10 mini for £20 a month on Orange. It is a very cute but tiny phone. It is not at all easy to use. Being so small it is really hard to get what to what you want. The music player is good and the ringtones are loud. The worst thing is that you cannot bluetooth between handsets. My sister had some message and ringtones that she wanted to keep from her old phone. She was told that you cannot bluetooth because it is an Android phone. Unfortunately my sister's... (read more)

Could do better!
A great looking and lightweight phone (88g on the mini). And considering it's actually a smartphone all the better - gps, camera, video, wifi, 3g etc etc. and the android operating system. The screen is clear and bright and the functions are slick.
But now for the downsides, and there are many!
This phone is not setup to do anything well? I find it frustrating and some of the icons very confusing, all I want to do is make a call!! but you have to go through so many... (read more)
