Another excellent smartphone from the Sony Xperia stables, the Sony Xperia Go is portrayed as a tough smartphone for the outgoing user who tends to handle their phone roughly. This Sony mobile is a mid-ranged phone with choice features considering its price and comes in a bar shape. Sony has opted to go for the reliable Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) OS which is backed up by a 1 GHz U8500 Dual Core Cortex A-9 processor. The 512 MB RAM completes the combination to ensure that the apps on the mobile run in a smooth manner.
The screen of the Sony Xperia phone is a sufficient 3.5-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen which displays images in an HVGA resolution of 480 x 320 pixels. Being a rugged handset, the phone features a scratch resistant display. The screen also promises to be dust and water resistant. Additionally, the screen has an auto rotation functionality which allows the user to view it in landscape or portrait mode, depending upon the orientation of the phone. The Mobile Bravia Engine further improves the display quality.
The Sony Xperia Go comes packed with a 5 megapixel camera which is backed up by an LED flash for pictures the user would want to click in low light. Additionally, the phone is capable of HD video recording at 720p. The camera also consists of a 16x digital zoom and packs in a number of features such as Autofocus, Red-eye reduction, Geo-tagging, Touch focus and 3D Sweep Panorama. The 3D Sweep Panorama feature allows the user to click a wide 3D image by sweeping across the intended view.
The Sony Xperia Go has a sophisticated look about it with straight edges joining up at sleek curves. The device is slim with dimensions of 60.3 x 111 x 9.8 mm and is quite light with a weight of 110 g. Features like the Proximity sensor and the Ambient Light sensor also enhance the display and user experience of the phone.
Storage and Battery
The Xperia Go is capable of carrying your music collection, videos and images with an internal memory of 8 GB. The memory on the phone can be expanded with a micro SD card to up to 32 GB. The phone is powered by a Li-Ion battery and promises to give the user 6 hours of talktime if used in the 2G network. On 3G, the battery lasts for a healthy talktime of 5 hours.

Over the 2G network the mobile is capable of internet connectivity through GPRS and EDGE technology. For an optimized browsing experience the device is capable of connecting to the 3G network and possesses HSDPA and HSUPA technology, which make the device capable of a high rate of data transfer.

firstly, the phone is good for its range. though it lacks some features, it covers them up with other. i'm comparing it with xpria u as i am using both at present
1. unlike ^^Ramneek said, it has 8 gb internal memory out of which 4 gb is available for user as 4 gb is used up by the preinstalled apps etc. (same as xperia u)
2. it has expandable memory upto 32 gb. (xperia u of similar range doesnt)
3. no front camera (xperia u does)
4. not upgradable to android ics (xperia u is upgradable)
5. resolution is 480 x 320 Pixels. (xperia u has 854 x 480 Pixels)
6. 5mp camera (same as xperia u)
7. same screen size (3.5 inches)
8. water n dust resistant (no other phones have that) ;)
thats all i discovered till now... touchscreen is fab in both (hatsoff to sony) both are much better than xperia neo v and xperia arc (used them both last year)... just wish it had ics...
hope u found the review helpful... :)
I have been using Xperia Active phone since 8 months and its same waterproof and dust proof and am planning to go to Xperia Go.
because of foll reasons:
-> 1GHz Dual core processor
-> USB on the Go - works as USB host(many don't know this feature).
-> Fully scratch proof body.
-> SenseMe application from Sony. - plays songs according to your mood. (this feature also many dont know).
5MP camera is enough, as the photo clarity is very good from Sony
And with my experience from Xperia avtive i would say that IP67 (water and dust resistant) phones from sony are simply awesome.
I have taken lots of underwater photos and even dropped my phone by mistake from a waterfall but its still intact.
The only Cons I see here is:
-> Battery cant be removed.
-> No front camera.
Newly launched Xperia J is mostly getting compared with Xperia GO by Sony fan followers.
Here are some facts:
1. Screen: J has 4 inch screen (854X480 FWVGA - Full Wide Video Graphics Array) where Go has 3.5 inch screen (480X320 HVGA Half Size Video Graphics Array). Though resolution of GO seems to be lesser than J, it has Mobile Bravia Engine giving awesome display for video, photo etc. Due to Mobile Bravia Engine, lower screen resolution doesn't matter in GO whereas J doesn't have Mobile Bravia Engine.
2. CPU & GPU: Xperia GO is much ahead than Xperia J in CPU as well as GPU. GO is equipped with 1 GHz Cortex-A9, Dual Core and ARM Mail 400 where as J is equipped with 1 GHz Cortex-A5 and Adreno 200. Having A9 Dual core processor, GO is better performing than J. Also mail400 again cover the low resolution of GO compared with Adreno 200 of J.
3. Memory: Both mobiles are having 512 MB RAM. GO is inbuilt with 8GB Memory (approx. 4GB user available memory) and J with 4GB phone memory (approx. 2.2 GB user memory). Both supports upto 32GB Micro SD Card.
4. GO is having 107kbps GPRS & 296kbps EDGE speed whereas J supports 86kbps GPRS and 237kbps EDGE speed. fast web browsing in GO.
Other points: No front camera in go, J does have.
HD recording with 5MP camera in GO, J is having VGA Recording with 5MP camera.
OS for J is Android 4 ICS whereas for GO it is Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Recently in news, Go is now upgradable to Android 4 ICS.
GO is Water resistant and Dust Free.
Overall, except absence of front camera, GO is the choice as in most of points, GO is way ahead than J.
I have been using this phone for over two months now, and here is what I conclude:-
:))) LOOKS & DESIGN- Its awesome! People literally ask about it. Has been considered better than IPhone by two IPhone users. It is very slim and fits perfectly in your palm.
:)) WATER/DUST/SCRATCH PROOF- I have washed it a few times(with my facewash), no problem. It only looked cleaner! The speaker got clogged once when my friend emptied a bottle over it. Dried it, no problem. My screen-guard(an expensive one) developed scratches quicker than the bare screen. It is considered shock resistant as well, but I have never really dropped it. Responsible me!
:( SCREEN- It appears a bit grainy as compared with other phones. But it is good enough for any complain. (Saves Battery.)
:- BATTERY- Just fine. Will just last a day under normal usage.
:) MUSIC- Speaker is not loud enough. Ear-phones supplied are good. No dedicated keys. Sound quality is good.
:- CAMERA- Average quality. But considering the constrains laid due to its thin size, I must appreciate its engineers. You can shoot 3D as well, but will need a 3D device to view it.
:- INTERFACE- Its impressive, but could have been made more... handy.
:) BRAVIA ENGINE- It only makes pictures unnaturally vivid. They appear fine on laptop screen. Games never cause any problem. It does not reduce battery back-up significantly.
:)) GPS- Works really great. Have an internet connection and you will never get lost(if you carry a charger around).
:))) OVER-ALL- I'm in love with this device. I needed a portable phone that has everything I need for entertainment, not a work-station, and that is exactly what I got. If you are a spec lover, you will always find a better phone. But keep in mind, a heavy configuration is only a marketing strategy. (A 4GB-RAM laptop hardly ever utilises more than 2GB.)
it is an extremely good phone it fell down from my hands from minimum 1 meter height on the screen and nothing happened to it its a truly amazing phone, should buy it!!! the camera clarity is also too good plus the video clarity is good as the phone has bravia engine
