Xperia X10 mini – The Best Budget Phone of 2010

Now that we have entered the year 2011 what do you think was the best budget phone for 2010? There are many contenders for this category such as the phones from Nokia, Samsung and LG. What we are looking for is a phone that has tons of useful features and comes with a price tag that won’t break our piggy banks.

Here are the qualities we considered the phone must have to be declared the Budget Phone of the Year for 2010.

-          Affordable

-          Can work on almost all networks

-          Capacitive touchscreen

-          Excellent connectivity options ( Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, miniUSB)

-          Excellent multimedia options (FM radio, music player, camera with flash)

-          Running on Android OS

After doing research on all the phones that met our requirements the Xperia X10 mini came out as the winner.  The phone has an average price of £200 and this is already unlocked which means you can use it on any GSM network in any country you travel to. Its small size makes it very handy while its functions are at par with its big brother the Xperia X10.  With the latest OS upgrade of Android 2.1 coming from Sony Ericsson you can be assured of a more stable and faster phone.

If you are looking for a phone with excellent features yet won’t cost a lot then the Xperia X10 mini is the best choice available.

    “Can work on almost all networks”
    Indeed it does!
    I was in South Korea in September and would have been offline with a GSM-only phone
    since they mostly use WCDMA
    Getting upto ~50Mbps there on free wi-fi was also a pleasure (though the av was ~6Mbps).
