this is just awesome. except battery its more than just awesome. few days ago i put it under water. it still working marvelously.
bought the active just one month after it was released, so now i've had it for almost 3 months and it has not shown any defects whatsoever. The only complaints being low battery life and the lack of a front camera. I've upgraded the firmware through SE online and am eagerly awaiting ICS (which SE has promised during the second quarter of 2012). I've been through several nokia's and samsung's over the years and this happened to be my first SE purchase and i am happy to say that my next phone too would definitely be an SE!
Beware of the Following when you buy Xperia Active:
3.Some Display problems
4.Won't turn-on after update
Note: After you buy your Xperia, let them update it for you. If the above problem occurs it will be detected already if not,
This awesome phone won an award! :D

Yoh Bross!! i'realy like to buy This Godlike Active!! im just quite mind buggled are your actives all made in china you know about the thing when made in china?? Duh!! are there any manufactured like MAde in JAPAn or Germany or Finland?? plzzz answer me Dudes
Battery is quite bad, but it is possible to buy more powerful battery on the net, so it is not a solid reason not to buy this phone.
I need more than 1200 mAh... Since this is meant for sporty people, we need lasting energy. Any suggestions?
Great small mobile. Wonderful to be able to use in pouring rain. Really great UI. The screen is small but of very good quality. But for extensive browsing or video get a bigger one.
BUT, battery life is terrible. It just lasts a day for me. I do have wifi, blue tooth, sync, and just about everything else on. But that's why I got a smart mobile. But even when all above is turned off it still eats a lot of battery just sitting there!! Compared to my company iPhone4 that seems to consume battery just as used, the Active actively drains it so that you're down to 98% as soon as you just load a page.
But if you can live with the small screen and charging once a day it's absolutely great!
the battery is bad bad bad
i sell my phone and buy other
battery = 6 hours only!!!
