Sony Xperia Active Review: In Depth

Recombu
28 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Active is clearly pitched at sporty types looking for a phone that also makes a good running companion (the phone even comes packaged with an arm strap that contains a clear plastic wallet for the handset). If this is what you're after, it's a brilliant device. We submerged the phone completely in water, made calls on it, took pictures and recorded video; we really did give it every excuse to break down.

  • 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.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Active Review

Tech2
17 February 2012
  • Summary: The Xperia Active is priced at Rs. 19,500 (MRP) and the increasing difference between the Rupee and Dollar is taking its toll on the pricing of smartphones as well. We're mentioning this because just a few days back, the market operating price for the phone was around Rs.17,500. The only competition at present to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Active is the Motorola Defy+, which we'll be reviewing shortly, so stay tuned for that.

  • 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. It's a little bit too expensive to replace an MP3 player, but if you take exercise seriously, it's the same price as a Motorola ACTV, for example, and offers you a full mobile phone too boot.
  • Pros: Funky looking, water resistant, tough, compact
  • Cons: Small microSD card included, arm holder is bothersome, headphones not ideally suited to running

  • Excerpt: Lange war das Motorola Defy das einzige Outdoor-Smartphone, jetzt zieht Sony Ericsson mit dem Sony Ericsson Xperia active nach. Optik: Äußerlich gibt sich das Sony Ericsson Xperia active sportlich. Trotz IP67 Zertifizierung, die dem Handy Staub- und Wasserbeständigkeit (bis zu 30 Minuten bei einem Meter Tiefe) bescheinigt, ist es recht kompakt geraten und besitzt sogar eine große Öse am unteren Ende des Gehäuses, an der man ein Band befestigen kann.
