You forget the main selling point that the Xperia Active has over its rivals, and that's the Ant+ technology. Something I'm eager to try out paired with a set of Jabra Sport wireless earphones.
Big phone, small screen
Power consuming CPU, small battery
I'd take a Motorola DEFY or DEFY+ over this any time.
how about the speaker?, is it also water resistant?,,
and how would the sound come out?
I am a gr8 SE fan & eagerly awaiting Xperia active. Wish it was a bit taller than its present 92mm height.
expected release ws sept 9...
when is this phone gonna release?????????
mac, 29 Aug 2011hope the battery is also active as the phone. . .
hope that this guy is not like it's relativ... moreyou can count on the qualcomm snapdragon msm8255 to drain the battery faster than you can think :D
in other handset like htc trophy it will barely last one day even with an optimized OS like wp7.
but in the combo with android and active multitask i think it will hardly survive 10 hours.
@fade. water resist is different from water proof, dont make it like the same thing.
water resist mean the device can still hold up long enough to resist the water coming in to it for a certain of time, mostly up to 30 menit in 1 meter water deep.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2011nope its only water resistant. It can only withstand a splash of water. If you're planning on ... morethese modern wather resistant phones are actually wather proof. why do you think they defy how deep in wather it can be used and for how long.
yori, 29 Aug 2011so this phone will still work under water? XDYes, you can use it under 0.5 m (under water).
yori, 29 Aug 2011so this phone will still work under water? XDnope its only water resistant. It can only withstand a splash of water. If you're planning on using this phone underwater then buy a waterproof bag. BTW its a poor looking phone.
