This is my review after updating my Xperia Go to ICS and using it for 4 days :
1. Longer battery life (More battery saved in stand-by)
2. More stable applications (Lesser application crashes)
3. Smoother in-app graphics (Temple Run used to lag in GB, but not in ICS)
1. Not so efficient multi-tasking (More RAM is used up by ICS which leaves lesser memory for apps)
2. Takes more time to load applications (Same reason as above, 1GB RAM would have helped here)
3. Few bugs here and there that need to be corrected (E.g. Red & Green arrows disappear sometimes during incoming call, Settings crashes automatically sometimes.)
4. Home screen lags horribly with increasing number of widgets, which is the main feature of ICS. (CPU is underclocked to 200Mhz when Home screen is active)
dwight, 15 Oct 2012how come the nenamark 2 results of xperia go is so higher than that of the xperia sola despite... morebecause xperia Go has an HVGA resolution only which processes less pixels than xperia sola's WVGA resolution. that's why xperia go has a higher benchmark points even if they have the same mali 400 gpu.
dnt i recommend Nokia 3310..Dust, Water and Shock resistant...1hr in the water 8ft, just let it dry (but not under the sun) ---STILL WORKS! ;-}

I purchased the Xpedia GO soon after it came out. It is actually quite a nice little phone (especially as a second phone), however, it has a MAJOR design fault. Do NOT EVER try and use a MICRO SIM with a "caddy" (the normal way you use a "micro" sim on any other phone. Not only do you run the risk of not getting it back out, you also run the risk of having to have a NEW CIRCUIT BOARD !!!!!!! Now this is REALLY bad, because more and more phones are now moving to micro-sim cards and not being comfortable about swaping the sim back and forth is a serious issue.
OK, now, given that there is a basic design fault with the phone, you would expect Sony to have replacement circuit-boards in stock ........ NO, none available !!!!!! I have now been wating a month for mine to be repaired and they STILL have NO circuit boards available. PLUS I have to keep phoning them and chasing them to find out what the status is.
So, basically, it isn't a bad little phone, BUT I would NOT recommend this to anyone for 2 reasons ....... 1) A basic design fault, and 2) Sony's terrible customer service.
On a further point, I also own the newly released "Xperia Acro S". I have a micro sim in this too and, based on the "lack of smoothness" I experienced sliding it in (and I was very careful), I'm dreading ever having to take it out because I'm scared that will have the same problem and I'll be without another phone for WEEKS !!!!!! So, beware when buying the Acro S as well.
While we're on the subject of the Acro S, I wish Sony wouldn't mess about with ICS. Some of the really nice, inbuilt features, of ICS have been removed .............. why do these companies think they can re-design Android - if they are that clever, they should have written Android themselves!!! O maybe I should have just kept my Galaxy S3 (except it isn't waterproof)!!!
