Battery is weak & unimpressive. Drains within a day WITHOUT switching ON wifi/gps/GPRS. Hard buttons are plasticky and not tangible. No smart dialer. Difficult to type msgs due to small screen. Camera not that good as it claims. Text sizes displayed are small for a smart phone.
Is really rugged & water proof. Tension-less to place anywhere with wet hands. Good call quality, due to speaker strength & active noise cancellation

I have a small question
I have Samsung Galaxy S II G
As you all know that the battery is an issue in that device & I want to buy Sony Ericsson Xperia active & I don't know if the battery is good enough than the Galaxy S II which it sometimes lasts with me about 1 day & 2 hours in power saving mode
I go to backpackers trips & I need a good device which have a good battery
i got this phone 3 months ago. battery life is an issue and the small screen. but for its size and price it packs a lot of features and very durable. its worth buying.
Hello there..i've been using this phone for 8 months already.From my experience, this phone is awesome but there might b a couple of problems.1st, the grey material (aluminum i think) is easily scraped off when u drop it on a rough surface.2nd, no front camera n lastly, the phone sumtimes jammed with no reason.(i guess rooting is d solution). All in all,i'll give it an 7.5/10
