  • Conclusion: This makes great use of the limited screen space available, and means you can create small app shortcut groups so that similar apps are kept together for quick access. There’s also a range of nice widgets you can spread across the five home screens.

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: The Xperia Active is an interesting phone. We took too it pretty quickly, and while it isn't the sort of phone that we would probably buy, if you want something tough, water resistant and designed for workouts, then this is really an ideal phone.
  • Pros: Funky looking, water resistant, tough, compact
  • Cons: Small microSD card included, arm holder is bothersome, headphones not ideally suited to running
