Phone looks really nice. I noticed a few bugs though... not sure if hardware or software related such as on and of wifi connection at the start and microsd card unexpectedly removed. Battery life is also a concern. Still I'm much happy with this unit. :-)
Would I choose sola over go?
(According to my observations and research)
Reason why not:
1. Battery capacity
3. Easier to press buttons because of big thumbs
Reason why not:
1. Lower resolution and pixel density
2. Less compatible games
Another question, does Tap Tap Revenge work on Xperia Go? If so, I'd buy it!

Enzomiac, 24 Aug 2012I bought mine as well at the Sony Shop Glorietta and the back cover doesnt fit to well too. I ... morehey thanks! :) i really want to dip it in water. :)) now my problem is that my phone DOES NOT VIBRATE WHEN RECEIVING TEXT MESSAGES. I tried some suggestions like testing it using service tester. the phone vibrates but it didnt solve the problem. i thought the .184 update would solve this but no luck. any suggestions?
ken, 23 Aug 2012the back cover of my xperia go doesnt close really tight. i still can see some of the interior... moreI bought mine as well at the Sony Shop Glorietta and the back cover doesnt fit to well too. I can see the cyan insides of the phone but I did submerge it a few times and suprisingly the inside is not getting any water in :) But if you want to make sure I'll have it checked at the shop. Goodluck :)
ken, 23 Aug 2012the back cover of my xperia go doesnt close really tight. i still can see some of the interior... moreThe water resistant structure was built inside the body and the cover is just a cover. dont worried about this. You can drop your phone into the water without the cover but please cover the usb, audio jack and sim card holder.
Sony remeber,quit to name your phones xperia,and quit making brick desing(this if u wanna sell more),try to make one with 4 speackers and call it Fanatik 4.1 ....come on,are a lot of desings that wait for you.
Free Advice : Dont Buy the the phone which does not meet its USP

and the rest:http://talk.sonymobile.com/community/support/xperia_2012_family/xperia_go
the back cover of my xperia go doesnt close really tight. i still can see some of the interior(that has q turquoise color right?) will this affect the water proof-ness of the phone? I bought it here in the philippines. now i'm afraid to drop it in water

I just bought this phone couple of days ago, and it's already dead. And the worst thing is, the warranty might be void, just because some water leak.
A water resist Hand Held, dead because there is some water leak into it's core, and good bye warranty.
I was told I was using it wrong, I have to dry the phone before I can get it wet again. Wew, talking about commercial issue.
Now, I just sit and wait, I have to pay or Sony become kind to me and fix it without any more money to spend on a water resist phone that died because water leak.
But this HH is great, overall. Games works fine, video streaming is great, voice is clear and the size is fit for my hands.
its a good phone...but I just updated my XPERIA GO last night to 6.0.B.3184 in connection on LOSING SIGNAL. Guess what??? The problem of losing signal is NOT SOLVED! Updating to 6.0.B.3184 would not help! Right now (while typing this post) i don't have signal on my phone!!! And if there is signal the bar goes up and down to 1 bar until nothing to see.
It looks like a hardware problem not a software! The antenna is very poor!
Another issue of this phone is the audio. If you are using viber, skype, supervoip, mobilevoip the other line would complain that the audio is so low that sounds like very "far" from the microphone. I even asked my friend to put the volume in high but still no changes. I tried it on several wi-fi but the audio still the same - very low!
I like a phone with waterproof feature but this xperia go really disappointed me!
