Power comes in all sizes.
Given its diminutive size, Sony Ericsson have come up with a very smart idea to give you most of your favorite apps without cluttering up the 3” screen. At each of the four corners of the screen there’s a quadrant where you can drag and drop apps from the Apps folder; once a quadrant is pressed, it expands for you to easily select whichever app you want to load. So not only does you screen look good with a nice wallpaper that you can clearly see, you also have access to 16 apps on the Home screen as well.
Using the Xperia Mini Pro was quite a pleasant experience, because no matter what app I tried or how heavy a website I visited, everything performed fast. In fact, the Xperia Mini Pro was just as fast as my iPhone 4 in terms of smooth transitions for multitasking from one app to the next and general smoothness of the interface. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it was Galaxy S II speeds either, but having a small and low resolution screen certainly helps boost speed.
As you can see the Xperia Mini Pro is actually faster than its brethren, thanks to the small resolution screen. It doesn’t really need to be as fast as the industry leading Galaxy S II or Bold 9900 because it costs half as much.
