Summary: Not a terrible phone by any means but not an excellent phone either. Speed was not a strong point with this product. I did like how tough it was to break after dropping it down stairs and throwing it in water she is still kicking !
Summary: Until I updated this phone to Android 4, this was a fast phone. Camera is so slow as to be pretty much useless. Generally the user user interface is always lagging. Likes: good features like built in voip sip. The WiFi actually appears to work, handing off to appropriate access points as required. It appears to be reasonably rugged but I wouldn't take it swimming on purpose. Wants: being unlocked and Worldly, it would have been nice to host two sim cards.
Summary: I got the phone from HassleFreeCell, fast shipping, the photo is a "xperia s" but as the title say you will get your "xperia go", in the box a "Stereo Headset MH410c" even a microsim adapter and what may be confused by a chinese wall plug is a "Quick Charger EP881" you can google it to find more about, I think thats the only con even so HassleFreeCell sent me an adapter for that in the sheath (nice touch) but it was a poor quality one, it didn't work for me.
Build issues, poor earphone, and below par display

Excerpt: Brought it as the second phone for rugged use, but the mic suddenly became very faint and kicked out. The mic test confirms its working (very faintly) and then from the sony forum i found this is a common problem with the phone and is hardware and software related. The speakerphone is also not very loud.
Pros: Water Proofing, Design, Decent Display Resolution, Dual Core hardware, Decent camera
Cons: Speakerphone low volume, Mic very faint, Software issues, ICS update only for the brave
Excerpt: I had a Sony Xperia Go about a year a go and was generally very happy with it and only got rid of it as my partner was due an upgrade so I had his old iPhone. I would probably still have it now if it wasn't for that. From what I can remember it was quite a small but tough little phone, I know that I had to keep reminding myself that it was dust and water RESISTANT not FOOL PROOF.
Summary: Sony Xperia Go (St27i). Firstly I chose this phone because I was looking for something small, light and fast(ish) with enough memory not to completely clog up with a few apps and some data to replace my HTC Wildfire S, and for the most part it fit's the bill pretty well. Firstly the good points, it is certainly small and light, and it's fast enough to do what I want, it makes my wife's Iphone 3Gs look laughably slow in most circumstances.
Summary: I've had this phone for about 4 months, and for a 150 CDN phone, it is worth it's price. However, at least once a week, the phone suddenly dies, and since the battery is not removable, you need to hit the power button at the same time as the volume down key (reset button), and it usually takes around 1-2h to actually reset the phone. Just because of this, I am actually thinking of moving on to another device.
