The main advantage of Sony Xperia Active over competitors like Motorola Defy is ANT+. I don't understand why Sony resigns from supporting protocol widely used in sports devices.
why oh why oh why oh why would i want to playback 1080p videos on such a low rez screen, why is it a disadvantage??? THE SCREEN IS LOWER REZ THAN THAT......................WAKE UP
Sony's been using NovaThor chipset on most of their phones. Wasn't it the weakest processor even on dual-core?
Main reason to buy this mobile is for water & dust proof only. remaining all r old. No ICS..

Be careful with the phone guys, Don't do some wild tests like some guys do, My Friend's Xperia Go screen has got broken
I actually look forward gsmarena done a validation on the water and dust resistance ability within this review instead just mention it... At the end, this is the selling point for this phone. How well it hold up against abuse is essential.
The yellow version is both better looking and thatkit has an arm case too. Its the "sports edition".
should have reviewed that instead.
XViD/DivX does not matter GSMArena -- these are out of date CODECs, replaced by h.264.
Also your comment on the 1080p has nothing to do with the Cortex A9, as this sort of thing is usually done by a dedicated hardware video decoder of the SoC (usually optimised for h.264), not by the ARM core.
I can't understand why Sony leave features like a decent resolution screen and front cam. Otherwise this would be a perfect phone to get my sister who always breaks phones, drops them down toilets etc.!
Sony came with a well-thought, well-built product, but I wish it was a tad higher specced. It just feels feature-phonish. If unlocked price is affordable enough though, it's a great option as an outdoor phone (secondary?) for those surfers or extreme sports lovers.
