Good: Small, Quirky, Camera
Bad: Unnecessary features
Comment: I brought this phone a couple of days ago and I'm still trying to get use to its quirky features. it has an odd way about it. You have to go around the houses before you can get to the point.
For example: Personally, i find the two sets of photo galleries a bit annoying and also that I have to crop every single photo if I set it as background. There is no other option!
Personally, I find that the phone features unnecessary on the five-page home screen. I deleted most of them as it made the phone seem quite cluttered. If I want to go on facebook or see my gallery etc I will go and find it on the menu.
Sometimes simplicity is the key and unlike this phone, it is not.
Good: I have no simple idea
Bad: Let's see...
Comment: I bought it about 2 days ago...and afte a 12 long hour charge I can say that I had to deal with the first problems...Firstly,there was a text like"son ericsson app dosn't work".I though..."yeah,right...what?".My second problem was about Micro SD card...it was never recoginised.I don't know..such a nice design for such a dissapointing phone.I love it when I saw it,but after that probs I'm a little cautious,I have sent it back and waiting for another"no damaged"to come...I don't know,maybe it was just this,but judjing from other reviews I just wasted my money...
I found the camera preetty satisfying though,and have no problem with texting,despite the fact that I have to push a liitle hard the screen...fingerprints evetywhere!!
Bad: everthing specially the screen touch

Good: Nothing at all !!
Bad: All !!!
Comment: It's impossible to use the phone longer than 5 mins, after that sore eyes and headache cause fonts are too small even if you change fonts size in settings to large !!!
Comment: Very bad Touchscreen, runs easily low on memory and crashes, generally the phone keeps crashing, regret that i bought it, its the second time iam doing the mistake to buy a Sony!!! First was a Xperia mini and now the Tipo, very dissapointed !!
Good: ITS A CHEAP BUGET PHONE
Bad: SCREEN A BIT TO SMALL
Comment: PHONE IS OK BUT IF YOU TEX A LOT AND GO ON TO FACEBOOK OR OTHER CHAT SITES THE KEY BOARD LETTER S ARE A BIT TOO CLOSE TOGETHER AND YOU CATCH THE WRONG KEYS WHICH IS A PAIN
Comment: Wish I had got a better model, cant transfer data from phone to memory card, on bluetooth cant set it so it autoatically answers like on my old sony erricson W395,the touch screen is so sensitive it will drive you nuts, DONT GET ONE they are rubbih
Good: android 4.0(icecream sandwhich,budget android phone
Comment: i really love this phone,i want it desperately its just sooooooooo aseome ,stylish,it has got evrything which i want and its in my budget too.
Good: Excellent product for the price
Bad: No front camera
Comment: The reviewer is lying. My Tipo can latch on to a network even the signal is extremely low. The reviewer makes sound, timescape layered by Sony over android is a bad thing. In fact it is an excellent selling for this device. Really good people who don't like carrying bulk devices. For powerful computing needs my laptop beats every damned tablet on the market and I mean it.
