I have this phone for about 3 months and i'm verry pleased for this choice. it has only 320 mb of INTERNAL memory, but you cand expand it with 32 GB of Externel memory and i think this is enough for anybody. The battery life is a liitle short if u use wireless, gps or internet surfin verry offen. But it's a program caaled Juice Defender that is monitoring yours connection and cut it when the phone goes in stanby mode. This can increase ur battrey life twice as much. I like this phone because is verry small comparing with other smartphones and it's robust. It has no bugs in software and the signal is good. i made underwater pictures and it gets wet inside the first case only, but this is normal. The only bad thing in case u use it underwater is that the earphone and the microphone gets wet on outside and the sound level drops to verry low. In this case u have to clean those holes by blowing those little holes. On GPS i use IG and it works fine. it's not the perfect phone but perfect does not exist. The screen is small but in gains point on lower space in pockets. I wanted to buy Galaxy S II but it was too big for me and too fragile. In the end i can say i'm pleased with my choice. It's a smartphone that can do almost anything that galaxy and Iphone does but u don't have to be worry to broke him or it's getting wet. A verry good choice for active people or clumsy ones :)

Any idea if the Active(Black/White/White) is available in India? Has anyone bought the same in India? The other color, Black/Orange/White, is available but i personally don't like the bright 'fluorescent' orange band around it.
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2012wat is the meaning of user usable 320 mbdude it means you only have 320 MB of space available on the phone
is it normal for the water to go in the outer case? my secondary case always gets wet
Well, my Xperia Active is exactly what I was expecting, a Great phone for sports. The basic problem is battery life, but if you are a REAL SPORT person you don't need a phone for chat for 3 hours or surfing the net frecuently. I use to hear music while jogging and take some panoramic pictures and the battery energy remains for at least 2 days. I'm really happy with it, but if you are a geek I don't recommend you.
A nice little phone (which is a break from most bulky smartphones)with neat design. Comfortable in a pants' pocket and very sturdy. Its battery is a little weak though. But generally a nice piece of hardware.
phone is awesome but the battery is preety bad i have huge problems with it -.-
This phone is just awsome that u dont to worry if its dropped badly, accidently jumps into your bathtab or maybe soup or maybe in pool. The flaw can be filled by some software such as go theme, go locker and others.
this is just awesome. except battery its more than just awesome. few days ago i put it under water. it still working marvelously.
bought the active just one month after it was released, so now i've had it for almost 3 months and it has not shown any defects whatsoever. The only complaints being low battery life and the lack of a front camera. I've upgraded the firmware through SE online and am eagerly awaiting ICS (which SE has promised during the second quarter of 2012). I've been through several nokia's and samsung's over the years and this happened to be my first SE purchase and i am happy to say that my next phone too would definitely be an SE!
Beware of the Following when you buy Xperia Active:
3.Some Display problems
4.Won't turn-on after update
Note: After you buy your Xperia, let them update it for you. If the above problem occurs it will be detected already if not,
This awesome phone won an award! :D
