well, xperia active has the worst battery a smartphone can have, and it's really hard to use it if you are texting person, other than that the phone is super good.
T-H, 13 Sep 2013Heh. Hard to believe the Xperia Active could be three years old, when it was only released lat... more2.5 rounded upwards.... :)
So far no replacement found that beats my 2.5 years old Xperia Active. Want small screen, lots of memory, waterproof, android, tough. Any good ideas?
Ok, well I am one of those mf....s that try 20 phones per year, this year is my year of rugged phones and I am on my last... xcover 2. I get to try, insmat, AMG rock 5, Seals. CAT 15, cat 10, sony xperia Go, and others but Xcover is better than all of them, best processor, screen and even if it is not that rugged it works.
NOT WATER PROOF!!! I fell in w/phone in my pocket. Disassembled to check for water...inside was SOAKING WET!!! Only reason I purchased this model was the 'water proof' feature.
Paulster, 30 Aug 2013Bought it, had it for a month and was glad to be able to return it. Now back to my 3 year old ... moreHeh. Hard to believe the Xperia Active could be three years old, when it was only released late '11.
But fair point :-)
Bought it, had it for a month and was glad to be able to return it. Now back to my 3 year old xperia active wondering what to do next. As the old x-active is way better than the xcover2, sticking to the x-active for a while seems a viable option...
Samsung: allow apps to be moved to sd!!!!!
usb / charging flip simply fell of after 4 months of use...(had similar problem with old samsung B2100.
going to take it to the shop next week to see if warranty covers that.
This is not a gameing phone or any special app palyer. this phone is for work. it is water proof
This is not a gamer toy ! Which kind of app can fill 1GB so fast ? I have 36 apps taking 460MB.
abu, 04 Aug 2013Don't buy you'll go mad with the shit of low storage please dont How many apps have you got on it?
what will be recomended the x cover 2 or the samsung galaxy s3 mini?
Got an XCover2 for my birthday, 2 weeks later it fell from a table and the screen broke, not really shock proof... Warranty does no cover this and so far i have been unable to find a replacement screen. I now have a dust proof paperweight.
Paid for 4gb memory, but got 1gb. You can't put apps on a micro sd card, so useless as a smartphone.
nice phone but why be dishonest with people about having 4GB when there is none
Can any one tell me if you can move apps to the SD card or can it only be installed on the internal memory of the phone
paulster, 19 Jul 2013Does the xcover2 have 'normal' gps or does it only have a-gps? I need to be able to use gps ab... moreIts even better. Has extra russian GPS : GLONASS
If you install iGo My Way or Navigon you can have Off Line GPS without even need for GSM network.
