Active beats DEfy on several areas, where the defi beats it on just one: the size of the screen.
Xperia active has some nice features that i find quite interesting. I like hiking in the mountaints- WITHOUT worrying about my phone been wet, dirty or anything like that.
Here are som specs that makes the active quite unike:
-Dragontrail glass. The dragontrailglass is sort of the seccond genereation of gorrillaglass. It is mouch more tougher nad can be be bendt.
-The screen can be used when wet. Perfectly on rainy day.
-ip67 water and dustresistant.
-the big ring to conect anything.
-ANT+. This is a standard bluetooth profile for connecting to sport-related accessories like steptracker for the nikeshoes, bycyclecomputer or heartratetransmitter.
-powerfull processor. This is very true, considering the low resolution 320x480 pixels. Xperia active is using the exaxt same prosessor as xperia play and arc.
- It is compact. Active can be consithered as the active version of xperia mini wich makes it small and neat.
-Battery? Te powerfull prosessor and a 1200mha battery can be a problem when youre away from electricity for more than a week- nice thing is that the battery is user replaceable.
-The screen. The screen is too small for this phoen. SE should have made it 3,2inch or 3,3 like the ray.
-Small screen resolution? In theory the screen resolution on the active is a bit low but the screen isnt all that big either. The biggest problem about this resolution is the lack of support for some apps in market.
'The xperia active is the perfect outdoor phone for me and I am shure many other who likes a tough and powerfull phone would get this small little bugger.
This is the perfect second spare phone!
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2011xperia mini or xperia active ?i will go for xperia active.
zang, 28 Jul 2011Guys what do you think about Motorola Defy. How does this compare to it?? i wanna buy defy ...... moredefy + is coming on at&t. it has 2.3 gingerbread and 1 GHz processor. everything else is exactly the same but still i would suggest active because it has wet finger tracking and we soon would be able to make video calls through g talk.moreover the 4 corner timescape is better than motoblur.
If this is the middle range average Android mobile phone.... I like it. Nothing wrong with CPU speed and integraded amount of RAM. Some of current middle range Android mobile phones have less RAM/slower CPU and they sell. With Xperia Active get a lot in the bundle. I just hope its reasonable priced. (=
