My hands-on experience to Xperia GO (ST27i)

Pros:
•Water resistant. Yeah, can perform under water.
•Very good touch sensitivity.
•Dust & scratch resistant screen. (My Xperia GO does not have scratches on screen. No screen protector for 1 year.)
•Durable. (Drops 14 times and still alive. Just got 1 small crack on the side.)

Cons:
•The audio jack seal easily wears off/loose if you always use a wired headsets.
•Low WiFi signal reception. (My other phones can connect to WiFi fast & easy. while my Xperia GO needs to go near to the Wifi modem to connect and I don't know why.)
•Always lagging because of too low RAM. (It says 512mb of RAM but actually it's just 389mb RAM. I also can't play good games because of low RAM problem.)
•Low quality graphics. (The display is pixelated when playing some games.)
•Slow camera response, slow capturing image at 3MP & 5MP resolution.
•Becomes more slower after system update.

Good phone for those who want compact, water & dust proof smartphone. Good camera. Easy to use. Good touch sensitivity. But this comes with the price. phone is slow (even after periodical restart, temp cleanup, using less no of apps), signal problem (with same service provider, same place my friend would get full signal strength), unable to attend the call sometimes. seems they did not concentrate on basic functionality of the phone. Not worth for the price.

Very awesome phone in all regards except for very poor battery life and speaker sound quality could have been better.

> In reply to Richardo @ 2013-11-10 21:07 from fjSM - click to readfriend this phone performance is good but as far as its body manufacturing is concern it is very poor. side battery charger and jack socket cover is very sensitive it gets break easily and once it gets break company will not give water resistance guaranty. phone sound is OK but camera quality is not good it takes time to click picture and images are blurred even on 5 mp. HD video quality is OK. battery lasts only 1 day another issue less internal memory and u cant move apps to SD card. despite of these problems phone works quite satisfactory as it is made by sony.
