Sony Ericsson Xperia active review: The Rainmaker

 

Flick it, kick it, throw it, wet it. Drag and drop it. And watch it come back for more. The Sony Ericsson Xperia active is a survivor. The rugged smartphone has a Bravia Reality display and exchangeable covers, 1GHz of oomph and HD video, and plenty of...

Smart and rugged, two words that don't tend to go together all that often, especially when it comes to phones. A light to moderate encounter with the floor would pretty much wipe out the majority of smartphones out there and as for the rugged-phone...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Active review

 

The idea of tougher, water-resistant electronics is nothing new, but this year we've seen rugged smartphones becoming increasingly more mainstream. Motorola has had a go at this type of produc...

We’d have liked it to be a bit thinner, though, and we’re sure there will be some who would like to see a rugged phone with a more generous display size. But Sony Ericsson has delivered something of a first when it comes to tough, water-resistant...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Active

 

Keep fit and healthy with a smartphone that proves size matters less than style and smarts.

Practical, hardwearing design ; Excellent performance ; Slick UI & smart bundled apps ; Extra included accessories

Poor call quality ; Short battery life

After a number of years in the wilderness, Sony Ericsson (soon just Sony) is finding its feet again. The Xperia Active is a well-made, carefully thought out, specialist smartphone for those who love the outdoors. It is rugged, portable, comes with an...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Active

 

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. The Xperia Active...

Funky looking, water resistant, tough, compact

Small microSD card included, arm holder is bothersome, headphones not ideally suited to running

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.
