5 out of 5 eggsNice phone for the price

Pros: - Ease of use
- OS
- Good battery life
- Responsive screen
- Great volume

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I bought it for my 6th grader. He is familiar with smart phone through 2 years of school program. He loves this little gadget and as parents, we are happy to be in touch with him when he is out with friends or relatives.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Little Phone

Pros: Compact, decent performance, nice display, battery life seems to be good. Fairly recent version of Android.

Cons: A little slow to boot up, camera is pretty basic. Some of the more processor intensive apps can take a little time to load and run.

Other Thoughts: I knew I was making a compromise with the smaller screen, but it does what I need it to. If you are a power user then I cannot see you liking this phone as the screen is pretty small and the processor is of the single core variety. Likewise, if you want good, quality photo capability you will want to look elsewhere. However, for the price of this phone you can't expect it do do what the big bucks phones do.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good compact phone

Pros: Compact, does not freeze, functional, price

Cons: Quality control, screen too small for many games

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a compact smart phone and this one is good for the price. It does everything it supposed to do. It is very compact and holds the charge well. Screen is good, but it is too small to play many games well (I got my chess game though and it is just fine). Camera is not the best but quite decent. My only problem is that apparently quality control in China is lacking. My screen was not attached properly (same as with another user here), but I noticed it late and had to ship it in for repairs. Sony fixed it and now I have my phone back.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good budget dual phone w/ICS!!

Pros: ICS - yes!!! Imagine a budget phone equipped with almost the latest version of Android?
expandable storage + 2.5gb built in (room for installing many apps). I also tried Viewsonic viewphone3 and Motorola xt532, both have very little memory for apps. in that regard, Tipo is the best of all three. these three are similarly priced dual-sim budget phones.
good looking.
lightweight. very portable.

Cons: camera is 3mp only. i mean 5mp is standard even on low end phones these days.
