not bad... mini much preferred.. the proper one is massive!
#2
bought the mini pro for the mrs... she loves it.. tempted to get one myself!
Althought think it can be got cheaper from very for NEW customers... don't they give 25 quid off fo rnew customers by default?
#4
Brilliant price for a high specced Android phone. And before anyone starts about how it only has a 600mhz processor, for a screen this size that is more than sufficient.

I recently bought the T-Mobile Pulse after reading about it on HUKD. £109.99 including £10 airtime & 6month free internet. It now also includes a £10 Amazon voucher & free texts. The Pulse is upgradeable to Android 2.1 (SMS is a problem now but should be cured in October), There's every likelyhood that the phone will get Android 2.2 in the near future.

Does the Sony X10 mini justify its £80 premium over the Pulse. Personally I'd say no it doesn't.

Here's the Pulse link for anyone who missed it...

had this phone for about a month. It's great. all the features of a smartphone, but in a compact size.
The screen is a tad small, but most sites these days are adapted for mobile anyway so not much of a problem. plus having the convenience of a touch screen AND a qwert keyboard is great. I hate typing with just touch screen

Care to elaborate?
Yes it has Android 1.6, yes it's a tiny screen, yes its not got amazing features on it, but then it's not meant to.
For what it is, and how its spec'ed, it's a good phone for people that want a small smartphone, but who may not necessarily want to be using all the features all the time (eg. my mrs!!!!)


As for the deal - its an OK deal.
You can get the phone direct from O2 online (comes unbranded) for £180 delivered, and no need for a top up (Quidco & TCB give somewhere in the region of £3.50)...
If you ring through customer services and try to buy it out right (like the £285 Desire deal, then they will bizzarely ask for £190 and won't budge on the price!!!) In shop it's hit and miss, you can get it for £180 and if you can prove you're an O2 monthly customer, they don't charge you the £10 top up (well the 2 shops I went to said they woulnd't anyway)

well i dont know about the min but the full size one is below the likes of the HTC desire etc
i have the desire and my mrs has the xperia (her choice) and its nowhere near as good or intuitive as the HTC
however horses for courses and i suppose if i had never used the HTC i would be happier with an X10
however consider the battery life.its very poor on the X10 but maybe the mini screen will help

I would say that's very wise if you're really counting on 2.1, ask any Motorola DEXT owner(Moto promised they'd be getting 2.1 last year, and only recently broke the news that unlike the US CLIQ owners(same phone in all but name) they will not be receiving 2.1

Of course different company but personally I wouldn't count on any updates now until I see them.

As for this phone, my wife was interested so we went to view one, nice little handset, but pretty chunky due to the qwerty(not all slider phones are thick like this, Milestone being a good example), I guess a trade off for the overall compactness.

Sure o2 phones are locked. This is due for an update to android 2.1, from 1.6 sometime September. Check the app store if you get it, loads of helpful free stuff. Bit small though. Maybe it is for small people with a1 eyesight

I really, really wish Blackberry would release a phone with a slide-out keyboard! It would cut down on the height and maybe allow for a bigger screen.

The screen is way too small on this phone. I'd rather go for the LG Optimus GT540 for £99+ from CPW. Comparison at this link >

http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=3081&idPhone2=3147

Depends if you want the Qwerty slide out k/b and better camera/recording facility of the X10 Mini Pro. The LG GT540 phone uses Qualcomm MSM 7227 processor, clocked at 600MHz same as the X10 Mini Pro and it does have a bigger screen that the X10 Mini Pro. Probably won't be locked either from CPW. Battery life looks to be a lot better on the LG too.

Its short and narrow but quite a fat little phone IMO. 17mm compared to the iPhone 3GS which I think is pretty chubby at 12mm! Its a good price for a powerful Android phone tho, voted hot

this is my current phone. its wonderful, good camera for daytime pictures, great music player, many off the aps will work fine with the current 1.6. Update due this month. Having been a user of the iphone for the past year, this is a nice change.

its a fat little phone because its hiding the keyboard, for length and width its the size of my bank card, fits in my pocket no problems the iphone is long and slim i played with an iphone4 for a day and found it too big and bulky.

ive had the x10 mini pro for a month now ,if this comes with o2s firmware you may not be able to update the firmware to 2.1 straight away as they are still taking their updating from .08 revision of 1.6 i had to flash a generic uk firmware to the phone which wasnt too hard but i wouldnt recommend it unless you were confident flashing phones(the first time i tried i ended up with a qwertz keyboard and had to use Z for y and vice versa)

the only cons i have found with this phone is in sunlight its very hard to see and the battery life isnt great although the last firmware update has improved it quite a bit im getting about 3 days between charges now, as for still running 1.6 i use adw launcher on the home screen looks nicer than the rest of the apps and is customizable.

the gps seems to connect quicker than my n95 8gb where it seemed to take 60 seconds plus this seems to take less than 30 used on on sunday night on my way to dublin with no probs apart from copilot not having the dublin street we needed in it, google maps would have done but didnt want the roaming charges . the camera is quite good out doors and in medium light in low light like most phone cameras not so great

having had the phone for a month now id say ill prob hang on to it for a good while as im quite happy with the phone , texting is pretty quick with the keyboard i dont thing the mini version is quite as good as using the screen to send long messages with an on screen keyboard and such a small screen isnt great even with an app for on screen keyboard that is 100 times better than the inbuilt sony one(the one i have is called swift key) theres no need to comment on the android apps and platform because it works great i havent had any random rebooots on my phone or strange goings on like old phones :D

the speaker on the phone is a bit weedy and isnt great volume wise for listening to music , the headphones that come with it are earbuds of decent quality but as fow a wired handsfree the mic is too low on the cable and means you have to hold the mic close to your mouth(makes it useless as a handsfree) paired it with my sony bluetooth headphones and works great .

other thing is the charger is micro usb (comes with a usb to mains plug) which is handy if your always at your computer not so handy if your out and your phone dies although you can get a car to usb in poundland if you drive.
#25
fantastic phone, actually put it next to an iphone and its tiny, the keyboard is fantastic even for chubby fingers. Google maps can still be updated to the latest version, if you are gentle you can get 3 days out of the battery, 1 if a heavy user.

Nice to finally have a small phone to take out with you rather than a huge bulge in the wrong place haha!
#26
Good price.

But beware, even though this is android many apps wont work on it as its screen is too small and hence many apps in the android market don't support its small resolution.

Blackberry torch 9800


Thank you for that! Dunno how this escaped me.

It's not exactly what I was hoping for. Still looks pretty big and the somewhat unnecessary touchscreen will push the price up. A horizontal/widescreen layout would have been better IMO. Was really hoping for basically a Blackberry version of this X10...

Still though, could end up being the closest thing to ideal for me.

Many apps won't work on this, as with the htc wildfire etc. I would have thought most of the larger developers will publish apps which are universally supported across devices but ive been told several times in stores and seen online and read in reviews that there are quite a few unsupported apps.

For example, Skype isn't supported.

Or, if on my desire I **** I get 28 results. On the wildfire you get 8. On this sony it may well be even less as the screen is smaller than the wildfire.

EDIT: THE ABOVE SHOULD SAY "If on my desire I s.earch for e.bay I get 28 results" Why the heck is HUKD censoring that?

I thought the reason many apps wouldnt work as it doesnt have the 2.1 update yet (mini pro havent had a wildfire) i have only found one app that wouldnt work so far , thats including making my phone a 3g access point with barnacle and universal androot to root the phone, copilot gps ,podcast manager, games, music downloads ,music tools and messenger apps all working fine i asked which apps didnt work because it doesnt seem like im missing out on anything by a few apps i dont or cant have :D

its not the screen size its the resolution thats the problem as for skype theres fring and a few other apps you can use instead i was using fring until i found trillian as i dont need voip

Its nothing to do with the os. The version of android is irrelevant for most features. The problem is that the many apps don't appear in the android market, not that you can download them but they dont work. Many developers will just develop apps for a large screen... many wont make it compatable with smallers screens.

Anyone know if this can be unlocked from O2, preferably for free?

The Pulse has a 3.5" capacitive screen. The Pulse Mini has a 2.5" resistive screen. No contest!

Yes, you can unlock almost any mobile phone.
Either take it into your local unlocking shop, or do it online yourself (which is very simple) from somewhere like http://www.unlocking.com who ive used before and are very good. Just google unlocking se x10 mini pro etc...

It's a good phone if you like small - although the wi-fi is annoying as it drops as soon as you lock it, and takes about 30 secs to re-establish when un-locking.
Signal strength isn't that great, battery needs charging daily.
It's slow when you need to hang up a call as you have to touch the screen to re-activate then click the end call screen button. Sometimes links on websites are difficult because of the size of the text.
Also not that great in sunlight.

im guessing you havent been able to update your firware yet i've updated to 1.2.a.1.174 using omnius to change to a generic uk firmware then update ota , you can check your firmware version by going into settings>about phone> then its listed at the bottom under build number this resolved the battery and wifi issues also when i take the phone away from my ear the screen comes on maybe theres a problem with the sensors on the older firmware
