Sony Ericsson Xperia Active Review

Tech2
3 February 2014
  • Excerpt: An Android-exclusive feature – rugged smartphones have literally been riding the wave, since the launch of the Motorola Defy that packed quite a punch or two in it’s IP67 certified shield. This year, more competitors, like the Xperia Active, the Defy+ and the Samsung Xcover entered the rugged Android smartphone race. Sony Ericsson’s latest entrant in their Xperia series, the Active or the ST17i is built and designed for those wanting to or have an active lifestyle.

  • Conclusion: Included in the box is a microUSB cable, charger, earphones with mic and call/end button, ear hooks, manuals, wrist strap and an armband. A microSD card might also be in the retail package but my review phone did not come with one nor did it come with the ear hooks, wrist strap or the armband. The Xperia Active has a 3 inch screen with a resolution of 320 x 480 which is pretty impressive for its size.

  • Summary: The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Active has one other lifestyle feature up its sleeve — it claims to feature wet finger tracking, meaning the phone “works perfectly” when either the screen or a user’s fingers are wet.
  • Pros: Waterproof and dustproof, Range of accessories in the box, Pre-installed fitness apps
  • Cons: Very poor call quality, Low in-call volume, Camera low on detail

Sony Ericsson Xperia active Review

Phone Arena
19 October 2011
  • Conclusion: We can’t help but like the Sony Ericsson Xperia active , given the multitude of accessories you get out of the box, not to mention the weatherproofing and pre-installed fitness apps. We even grew to like the protruding bottom as it houses the lanyard which we found ourselves using all the time. Unfortunately however, nothing saves the Xperia active’s call in-call speaker. It really is a shame and weighs heavily on our rating.
  • Pros: Waterproof and dustproof, Range of accessories in the box, Pre-installed fitness apps
  • Cons: Very poor call quality, Low in-call volume, Camera low on detail

Sony Ericsson Xperia Active vs Motorola Defy – which one’s the best for an active lifestyle?

Gadgetmania
6 August 2011
  • Conclusion: In the end, the choice is up to you. If you want to use your rugged smartphone as a “smartphone”, then the Defy is a better choice, despite its shortcomings, but if the “rugged” part is more important to you than browsing Web sites, the Xperia Active will be a better companion. Either way, we’re all glad that rugged smartphones are finally a reality and hope that more will be coming soon.

Xperia Active – finally, a good competitor to the Defy – user review

Gadgetmania
13 July 2011
  • Conclusion: The Xperia Active will be available this summer, and Sony Ericsson have already started their advertising campaigns on TV and online, so it should be here soon. Depending on the cost, this could be a better choice overall than the Motorola Defy, although if you want the ultimate ruggedness in a smartphone, the Xperia Active is the best choice.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Active review

Pocket Lint
6 February 2012
  • Excerpt: There aren't many people who would argue that staying in shape is important, and an increasingly popular pastime for many. So mobile phone companies are keen to appeal to active sorts with phones that can help them in their pursuits.
  • Pros: Funky looking, water resistant, tough, compact
  • Cons: Small microSD card included, arm holder is bothersome, headphones not ideally suited to running
