Review on 'Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro', Nokia 101 & Samsung C160 Mobile Phones, its Vantages and Minuses

1st time I purchased a mobile phone 'Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro' which has a mobile operating system and it happens to be 'Android 2.1 Eclair', So I thought I should write my review regarding the phone

  1. Sony Ericsson camera is by far the best this was the most cheap mobile phone at least among well known mobile companies which had 5 Mega pixel camera, and it has facilities of Auto, Macro, Twilight and Sports, good video quality as well
  2. Very powerful flashlight
  3. Extremely good response of touch screen
  4. Small size so it does not take much space in pocket
  5. Fast processing
  6. Excellent Sound
  7. QWERTY Keyboard    
  8. Scratch-resistant glass
  9. Good life of Battery
  10. Android operating system
  11. Very solid & durable, people often regard Nokia as the champion in that perspective but I have my personal experience, short story that made me to say that; when I was on top of a running bus and it fell down from my pocket, its back cover and phone was scattered on the road the few cars and motorcycles must have passed from it as the back cover was flat and there were scratches on the phone, then I came from one stop ahead as bus dragged me there, the phone was turned off, when I switched on the phone it took some time but surprisingly it turned on, only the external memory card (SD Card) which I purchased separately was not working, otherwise phone was working fine and there was not a single scratch on the screen. :)
  1. Android 2.1 cannot be upgradable to any further advancement, so all applications install on mobile and not on SD Card
  2. Only 128 MB of internal (mobile memory), so if you want to install a bit heavy application then uninstall other applications
  3. Mobile is kind of heavy 120 g or .12 Kg
  4. Does not have multi-touch
  5. Extremely bad Bluetooth (Even Bluetooth applications does not work well with it)
  6. No default zoom in Camera
  7. Some people really like it but I personally don't like threaded view SMS

Price: In (May 2011) the price of the mobile was 18,500 Pakistani rupees.

Note: This review is given on the basis of default functionalities of the phones, android applications may enhance these functions.

Review on 'Sony Xperia Sola' mobile phone


  1. X10 review was generally positive as it keeps falling Sony Ericsson brand that received much criticism for a lackluster performance in 2009. The first thing you will notice that the phone is done is like 90% of the phone is dedicated to the display itself.

  2. No doubt Sony Ericsson offers great phone and this model sure is a proof of that. Awesome phone to consider.
