You might be wondering where is the battery. Well, the battery is built-in so replacing with a spare battery on your own is out of the question.
Battery life is rather impressive, Sony Ericsson states up to four hours of talk time in a 2G network. In 3G mode, it boasts three and half hours of talk time.
During our tests, the phone lasted almost three days on casual usage of phone calls, messaging and surfing the Internet wirelessly.
First Impression and Why ?
However, the market saw a need for a smartphone that is portable and yet small in the size of your palm. And the Xperia X10 Mini answers the call.
I was blown away by the phone, with its light weight, small size and cool design. It gives a good grip despite its size and most importantly, fit comfortably in your pockets.
Some may argue that the phone looks thick but it is only slightly thicker compared to some phones, and the thickness actually helps to provide a good grip.
The only complaint is probably when one answers the phone call. As the phone is tiny, putting it to the ear could be uncomfortable. But that is probably one of the compromises in exchange for portability.
