    Compatible po ba dito ang skype videocalling?

    • David says:

      No front facing cam, not possible. Chatting only.

    • DaVerj says:

      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.

    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.

    • Ken says:

      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.

    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! :)

    …I already updated mine and I’m still smiling. :)

  6. eeee says:

    ang pangit ng design…

  7. richard says:

    much better if with 4″ screen

  8. simplynice93 says:

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

  9. Jarey says:

    Kelan po kaya release ng Xperia Miro?

    and btw, sana may review din kayo ng O+ 8.7 na android, or any O+ mobile, na-curious naman ako at mura :)

  10. kkk says:

    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.!!!

  11. atmonline says:

    Sa price nito bat di na lang kayo mag Lenovo P700, dual active dual standby… 4inch screen

  12. Alexus says:

    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.

  13. primon says:

    Did I read it right ICS but with a 800mhz processor? Sony is making me laugh.

  14. SonyFan says:

    Sony’s got some new devices from the IFA convention. It’s awesome!

  15. Swordstech says:

    parang galaxy mini 2 ko lang to, trade tayo.. XD gusto ko kasi ng xperia

  16. 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.
