Xperia active gets properly tortured, lives to tell the story - read the full textThe Sony Ericsson Xperia active is certainly a tough phone, but you may not have realized how tough exactly it is. The rugged droid was just subjected to a series of torture tests and it passed them all with flying colors. Sharp knives and hammer hits turned out to be no problem for the Xperia...

Replaced the W810 i had for almost 5 yrs with the Active.It is truely a great phone. Only issue you might have is comparing it with the larger android screens.(watch movies in the theater or at home and you'll be good with the screen :) I looked at that that 1.5 inch screen for yrs so 3 inch is cool. I dropped it really hard twice in one day and it had terible feadback through the mic.I thought it was done for... I opened the phone and a connection had come loose. It was normal again after that. It really hit hard that day...i felt like crap, dented the aluminium silver trim, but that was it,...all in all the phone is a winner for the active person.

one weakness to the xperia active dragontail glass is that it can be scratch by wrought iron.

i don't know why ppl keep saying it is 'Asahi Dragontrail Glass' while SE didn't say anything about it :/
so let me confirm that it is not tough enough, even it scratched after I removed the screen protector! I thought it's a tough scratch-resistance, so I can remove it, but it just disappointed me n I bought an anti-glare one

If it is gorilla glass's competitor, it should be scratch this easy

It is Asahi Dragontrail Glass, it's competitor to Corning Gorilla Glass!

Sony ericsson phones are durable and even the not android DB2020 software was almost bulletproof much stable than IOS what ever, by the way i have a question to you smart guy,, if your iphone broke a battery what are you going to do?? huh?? sent it to factory??? lols!!!!!!
