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.

  • Summary: Although it has a rather small screen, the Xperia Active isn't lacking in any other department. With a robust design, decent camera and nippy processor, this is the perfect handset for adventure-addicts who desire a rugged smart phone but don't want to compromise on functionality and power.
  • Cons: Screen is small at 3 inches; Case might be too chunky for some.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Active Review

  • 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: 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.

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

  • Conclusion: Il Sony Ericsson Xperia Active è uno smartphone avanzato destinato agli sportivi, sia perché si tratta di un modello cosiddetto “rugged” sia per le funzioni che permettono di tenere traccia dei propri allenamenti. A parte questo, si basa su Android e presenta caratteristiche avanzate in tutti i settori, da quello della connettività a quello multimediale. La memoria interna non è molto abbondante ma la dotazione di serie include anche una scheda da 2 GB.
  • Pros: Scheda da 2 GB inclusa; Resistente a polvere e acqua; Display toccabile con le mani bagnate; Funzionalità fotografiche avanzate; Android; Sensore di luminosità ambientale; Reality Display touchscreen; Giochi in 3D; Scanner per codici a barre; Sensore di prossimità; UMTS con tecnologia HSDPA; Applicazione Timescape; Accelerometro
  • Cons: Memoria interna non elevatissima
