Ok this is my full review and comment about this Sonny Ericsson Active. First of all this is my First Android Phone, and i am very satisfied at this Phone. did not waste any money or regret anything about this unit something like " i hope i buy this kind of unit or that unit not this S.E Xperia Active. BUT after purchasing this and tested i am very very satisfied.
Performance of this phone is very good. but slight issue im having, there's a Light bleed at Lower Right Corner (Color White), after buying it and head home to test it and look for something like damage or factory defects or what so ever, i notice the Light Bleed on the Lower Right Corner and go back to the Shop and told my concern and they let me to test a same unit but still there's light bleed on it, so i guess its a slight failure of SE hehehe, Actually the source of light bleed was the on the Settings Button. but its still fine because it always disappear after a sec. battery performance? of course defend on your usage :). i forgot, 2nd issue im having is while texting [Phonepad mode], the character showing up when your pressing a key is blocking my message and makes me not readable what im texting, dont press anything if you want to read what you just text. but again its just a slight issue. but im hoping if i can find a settings or software for it to move to somewhere else i mean the character showing up when your pressing something while texting on inbox. thats all for now.

AnonD-28487, 12 Dec 2011it must be getting slightly dimmed as it work on the basis of light sensor, screen gets bright... morebrother i think its not the light sensor. because whatever the lighting conditions are,the display has always same brightness. even if i increase the brightness.
which one is better guys? Xperia Active or Motorola Defy plus? explain why.. thanks!!
SE Rocks! I have been an SE user for years. I got my ACTIVE the day it was released in the Philippines replacing my old C702 which I used for years. It is just the right size. User friendly. I am just looking for a rubber case for protection since my 2-year old kid pays with it. I wonder if Samsung Xcover can rival this phone?
I bought my Xperia Active last Nov.19 at Robinsons Place ,Mla.Its almost a month now and im very satisfied with this phone.Fast web browsing, a lot of downloads available from Android market. Cool Live wallpapers.and im confident too when using it even with my wet hands.Great phone.

AnonD-23617, 08 Dec 2011is the billabong edition has a same price with the original one ?Yes, different price. The regular one's cheaper since it doesn't have that Live View bluetooth watch in the package.
kungpao, 10 Dec 2011Hey guys, Does anyone have the xperia active billabong edition? Have you notice a light bleed ... moreYes, mine's a Billabong edition and it has that light bleed as well. It made me worry too, but then I noticed that it disappears after a few seconds. It's probably just a part of the theme's effects.
fika, 10 Dec 2011which one better, samsung galaxy ace or this ? need your opinion bout this, pleaseThis one's definitely better. My bestfriend has an Ace, and hers lags a lot.
This one's cuter too.:)
Got mine 3 days ago. Awesome Phone
Went for a run with it this morning and its picked up the GPS signal in seconds (and not minutes like my previous phone)
SE really put a lot of thought into this phone.

Right now we cannot off our our light sensor there is no option to off it. There is exclusive paid app that is only available for xperia play which makes backlit stable in any conditions.
