Sony has started to produce its own smartphones and Sony Xperia Tipo Dual is a new addition to its Android Smartphone collection. This smartphone has the ability to manage 2 SIM cards at a time while it runs on latest Android OS 4.0.4 ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich).
This smartphone cannot be termed a high-end device but yes, calling it a low-end android smartphone smartphone user and holding a phone like Xperica Tipo Dual in hand makes it easy for one to understand how smartphones work.
To understand the working of this smartphone, let us take a look at its specifications.
Sony Xperia Tipo Dual: Body
The body of this new smartphone by Sony is not very bad actually. Once you hold the phone in your hand, you feel like holding something that is solid. The screen size is 3.2 inches which is quite good for a low-end smartphone and the weight is only 99g that makes it easy for one to hold the phone in hands.
As said earlier, the screen size is 3.2 inches having 320×480 pixels resolution. It has a complete capacitive touch screen which is an essential part of any smartphone these days. It has also got proximity sensor and a scratch-resistant glass too.
1500mAh lithium-ion battery is used in this smartphone which provides you with a 5 hours straight talk-time, 350 hours on stand-by. If you are using a 3G connection, the talk time increases to 6.3 hours and the standby time becomes 360 hours.
A single core 800MHz processor is used in Xperia Tipo which is supported by a 512MB RAM. The internal storage memory of this smartphone is 2500 MB but if you want, you can extend the storage by inserting an SDcard up to 32GB.
If you were looking for a high definition camera then I’m afraid my friend, this smartphone is not for you. There is only a 3.2MP camera installed in this phone which is good to take simple photographs with no much detail.
There is a flash light provided in with the camera which makes it easy for anyone to capture a photo at night. The video camera is 640×480 VGA which can also be used for video calling via Skype or any other application. There is a front facing camera too that is around 1MP.

If you are an old smartphone user then you will definitely think that what is good in this smartphone? Well, that is why I mentioned it in the beginning of the post that this smartphone is for beginners.
