      Oh pls dude. Stop using those words. There might youngs out there that might read your comment…so pls

    • one of the features of this phone is yung battery life nya.. meaning, pang matagalan. LOL

      dont expect any updates, parang awa nyo na. mga nokia ASHA phones ang kalaban nito. LOL

  2. Compatible po ba dito ang skype videocalling?

    • No front facing cam, not possible. Chatting only.

    • You can skype with camera(using the back if you want to show something To someone). But still you can see your contact’s appearance if their phone have a camera too. Or just voice call if dont want to use a canera. kthxbye.

  3. Just make the price even lower and we’ll have a new “smartphone for the masses”. I’m just tired of seeing Samsung android phones anywhere and I just want something new.

    P.S. I’m not saying Samsung phones are bad, I’m just saying that they are too common nowadays. Also a Samsung Smartphone owner here!

      Meron din budget smartphone ang LG, yung LG Optimus L3. Ewan ko di lang siguro kasing sikat ng SGY. Baka kulang sa marketing.

    • Ang problem sa LG L3 kaya konte lang ang bumibili ay yung screen. Pangit yung screen nya. May isang site nga na nag review at sabi nila, the worst TFT screen they seen so far.
      Yun ang downfall ng LG L3.

  4. OT: TO all Galaxy Tab 10.1 (GT-P7500) owners who are tired of waiting for their ICS update, you can now upgrade your firmware yourselves! :)

    No Jelly Bean upgrade? They should have released a Jelly Bean installed Xperia Tipo instead…

  10. read that the dual sim version cannot have both sims active, not dual-active noe dual-standy. looks like the old tech dual sim where you have to choose which sim to activate. what a P.O.S.!!!

  12. The design looks good, resolution is nice. But the price seems a little high compared to Lenovo’s A65 and Alcatel’s Blaze Duo 918N.

    We have the same phone Swordstech! :) i think mas ok na Gingerbread lang ang android version ng samsung mini 2 kesa dito sa xperia, both have 800mHz processor.. so i think baka mejo naglalag ang mga apps dito kay xperia tipo since naka ICS pa siya. kawawang hardware, pinilit.
