Hello to every body.
Just want to share my experience in this phone.

Actually I bought this phone for almost 2 years.

This is my first Sony Xperia Phone.
I dreamed to have a Sony Xperia Phone someday.

I bought it for 11,500 pesos on a mall in philippines.
The main reason why I bought it because it was
SCRATH RESISTANT
WATER RESISTANT
DUST PROOF

as a consumer i put it on the test.

WATER RESISTANT TEST:

From Cavite I went to Batangas with my friend and were riding on the top of Jeepney.. Unfortunately there's a heavy rain and I have my phone with me. We are 5 on the top all of us bring their phone.. Their phone shut of after got wet but my phone is wonderful still working.. hahaha we took picture of our selfie.. I prove that this phone is dependable on rain but I have no experience yet soaking in water but for rain it's definitely wonderful.

SCRATCH RESISTANT TEST:

I also put my phone in my Maong pants which has lot of stuff.. coins,coins,coins.. even though coins scratching the screen i have no any problem because no scratch at all. I never tried yet using a blade to test it.. hahaha of course everything to much is bad.


DUST PROOF TEST:

I always take care of my phone.. I always bring a small cloth to wipe dirt.. that's all.

CAMERA TEST:

5 megapixel is good. I can take decent picture.
It just have no front camera. but it's okay.

JELLY BEAN UPGRADED:

This definitely work for me.. I am not techie but I have no problem accessing my Facebook and Gmail and some stuff. I just only have 2 Games (POU & 4 pic 1 word)

BATTERY LIFE TEST:

Actually my phone last for 5 days for normal use probably because i download a battery saver.. most of the time i use text and call..

STYLE:

Here in Philippines lot of people amaze for a big screen phone 5-6.8 inches or phablet.. hheheh unfortunately those people have those kind of phone can get easily snatch.. sorry to say.. in Philippines there's a lot of snatcher.. in Malls,MRT, everywhere please be careful. My phone was definitely okay. because it was slim and very easy to put every where.. Actually I put in in my pocket and that's it. never had a problem. unnoticeable.

Verdict:

Everything has pros and cons
As of now. I loved my Sony Xperia Go..
Hahaha like it's name.. It's always on the Go.

Thanks Sony. I love you since The walkman was born..

I am Using Sony Xperia Go for 9 months.. Phone Was OK on Android 4.0.4 ICS butAfter Upgrading to 4.1.2 JB There are Alot Of Bugs and problems. Then I rooted my phone after which Performance got a little better and Battery Lasted For a Good time. But One day I woke up with a Faulty Touch Screen. Sony Xperia 2012 Phones have bad Touch Screens and slow laggy performance. Will Not buy any Xperia Phone until they better their record.

Iv'e had my phone for 2 months, the it froze, I send it in for repairs and had to wait 2 weeks, I got it back and not even 10 days and the phone had the same probleme, I send it in for repairs AGAIN, I had to wait another 10 to 15 working days for my phone, when I got it back, the SAME day it froze again!!!! Really, all that the vodacom shop said is that they can send it in for repairs again!! Is this the service Vodacom an Sony offers their clients??

Bought this phone 1 year ago then I installed custom Android 4.4.3 KitKat ROM because the original ROM sucks. The performance are bad and it can't play high-end games. Had to overclocked it to reduce lag. Now the screen is broken after it fell to the ground. Some area of the screen doesn't work. I'm getting a new phone and I'm not going to buy any phone from Sony. Don't buy this phone. There are more better phones out there and it's cheaper like the Motorola Moto G.
