Simple, stylish and practical.
With a weight under 100g and cute, stylish proportions, the Sony Xperia™ tipo is easy to carry around with you all day long. The 3.2" screen is great for checking sports scores on the net or looking at photos on the go.
Easy to use and set up.
While the Xperia tipo can do loads of things, nothing about it is complex or tricky. A dedicated setup guide takes you through everything from getting your old contacts off your old phone to creating an email account. Just take your new phone out of the box, turn it on, follow the on screen instructions and start making the most of your smartphone.
Made for battery life.
The Sony Xperia™ tipo has been designed with battery life in mind. This means you can chat all lunchtime on the phone, send texts over Eastenders and gossip into the night on Facebook™, without worrying about your battery life. The powerful 1,500mAh battery lets you use your phone for 24 hours without having to charge it again, so you won't miss a call or status update again.
Control your data costs with the data usage app.
We all get a little worried about data usage, which is why the Xperia tipo has a data usage app built-in. This tells you how much you've used between dates you select, and will even narrow it down to specific apps so you can see what's eating your data. Never go over your allowances again!
Your hassle free music player.
Just load your songs on and get listening, it's as easy as that. With xLOUD audio technology you'll get crisp sound even at loud volumes. Want some more tracks? There are millions of songs on demand from Music Unlimited, which you can listen to offline. There are no ads, and with dozens of present channels there's always something new. Syncing your new tracks with your existing library is simple, and for more space, just slot in a microSD card, up to 32GB in size.
A great portable camera.
No one wants to miss those once in a life time snaps, so the Xperia tipo comes with a great 3.2MP camera. You can record video too and it's easy to share your handy work over Bluetooth or on Facebook™.
