Very hard wearing except the screen scratches easily. Just ordered a Samsung galaxy note 2 though because the wifi is very poor because of the thick cover.(sony even admitted it) Multiple reviews back this up and I mean it, the wifi is shockingly crappy.
My battery last at least 48 hours with light usage,with lots of usage it last good 24 hours and I think it is good for any android phone.

I updated my Active on ics 4.0.4. and have isuess with wi fi,after that bluethot start to shut down by itself,so my advise for all is do not ever think to update on ics.I downgrade to gingerbred 2.3.4. and now he works perfectly.
My friend owns this phone and I have to say, it is a very good one. In a small package it is almost bulletproof. She smashed it against the ground with all force once, to prove it was unbreakable and it was. Definitely a phone to consider.
its been a great phone, and has taken a beating, its been swimming, climbed mountains, dropped from fairly decent heights, been used to open beer,
a really great all rounder, but after 3 years it finally gave up the ghost with the touch screen not responding, i tried to replace the screen, but alas still no joy, so must be a problem with the motherboard,
i'd definitely buy an updated version if it came out,
the only improvements i'd want is a slightly larger screen, but keeping the same phone size or just slightly larger,
the phone as it is, is almost the perfect size for your pocket, and with the attached rubber strap it means its always easy to get hold of even with a pocket full of other junk,
best phone ive ever owned, sad to see him go ;(
i've experience the same problem try to flash it again with the ICS from sony PC Companion hope it can solve your
A year ago I had the same problem, should be sent to Service. GSM network service does not work. Mobile Network Settings menu, select WCDMA preferred network-only mode and will only work in areas with strong signal in the weak signal phone will signal 0% (not able to receive or initiate calls)

My phone SCREEN is broken. Where can I fix it with a new one. Please send me the information. Thank you
this phone has better performance and battery life if you running on CyanogenMod rom. i have installed CM 4.2.2 for now and it's great
