Sony Xperia go review: Get out, get wet

Sony Xperia go review: Get out, get wet - read the full textThe Sony Xperia go is not a phone to keep on a short leash. Not your kind of phone either if you'd say no to a dip in the pool because you are expecting an important call. The Sony Xperia go lets you join the fun. The midrange package that Sony just brought...

Wtf! Almost all phones now have secondary camera and can make videocall, even those cheap phones in the market.

I'm from India. . I bought this mobile two weeks before. . .the reason to buy this model is because its ip67 certified. . . But today I just dropped this mobile from my hands unexpectedly. .but its display got shattered. . Cracked. . . I dropped while standing . . . That too waist heigh only. . . I called Sony customer care to query regarding this they said physical damage can't be consider under warrenty. . . Then why the hell they advertising this as dust proof model? . . I'm highly disappointed with Sony in this issue. . . This may be water proof but not dust proof. . . Waste . . Really I love Sony but from now I hate Sony. . . .

I think people miss the point that this phone is perfect to be able to take to a concert or fishing trip. The whole idea of a durable phone is that it is DURABLE. If you wanted all the features of an xperia s, then get one of those, but it wont do too well in the rain, or when your keg-stand goes horribly wrong.
Though not out in Australia yet, i have had the privelige to demo one, and they are suprisingly well off for a durable phone, in comparison to those who have previously attempted to capitalise on this neiche in the market.... all in all it is worth the sacrafice of screen quality, to be able to text in the shower, and worth the lower quality speakers, knowing they wont drown when submerged. Not the most amazing, but the best in its corner of the market

Sorry to say, but the same camera quality as the other xperias with noisy pictures and low video bitrate, many unnecessary apps, that panorama thing is useless because as a human you can't move the phone right so you ruin the whole picture. With Ericcson they were better, I don't know what's wrong with them.

IP67 just means that it can withstand water and dust, and really says nothing about how well it would wurvive a drop. The Active was pretty rugged, perhaps this is just element-protected.
It doesnt have ant+ or bluetooth 4.0 for heart rate monitors (sure there are bluetooth 2.0 ones, but those are impracticle due to the high power consumption).
Maybe this is just meeant as test to how they could make normal phones that wont be waterdamaged that easily.. but on the other hand, they coudl then nano-coat them...

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2012-08-01 13:41 from gLKN - click to readcause you have an 1080p video and dont want to convert it just to take it with you.
Sure you will not be able to enjoy the high resolution, but imagine that you filmed it with your proper camcorder or digital camera, and want to have it to show friends and family, but they dont really need to see it on a big screen with high resolution?
Or that you get a tv-series and want to watch it on the go (when you are out and about, not Go model name)... but sure, its probably an illegal copy then, so that doesnt matter much...
But sure it would be nice to watch videos from other cameras, without converting.

Ok, the low resolution I could probably live with, even if it feels like a big letdown after the xperia active.

But no Ant+, that is bad... well maybe bluetooth 4.0, that is almost as good, Nope, not that either... How did Sony totally forget about sporting people when they made this?
Did all sporting people leave with ericsson?

No ant+ = xperia nogo

Would have been ideal sports phone otherwise
