Looks like a good option for those that want a good smratphone for life, not a tech monster like the Note II for example. The IP57 is well worth the price. Lose an smartphone to a toilet once, and you'll see why.

I need help. I dont know whether to choose HTC one x or Xperia acro s. Im using x10 and its so slow. I want a fast and responsive phone especially when playing games. Im not really a sporty person but im rather clumsy. Help me to choose....

It has benchmark test because it uses Snapdragon S3 but NO battery test and NO audio quality test. Why?!

Hey guys
To people who say less battery backup....
Guys check the display and audio quality as it is far better than sg s 3 according to me.
Moreover it is the only brand that manufactured dust and waterproof phone and all the thickness is for proper protection of hardware.

To be honest, the lack of sales of the xperia acro s will be because of xperia v, people will definitely hold out for that model if they intend to purchase acro s, those that will not be affected are people that aren't interested in the extra performance, but then again, acro s is nowhere near the radar of "slow" and doesn't deserve to be called mediocre either, here in the Philippines it is currently priced at 24500, top dogs such as s3 are priced well over 30000, that aside I believe for sporty type people I think there is no better phone as of the moment than acro s or v, Imagine having to answer an emergency phone call in the rain without worries, now that I think is reliable...
