Truly Water Proof

I had this phone before it was released in India, and its totally water proof... yes i have tried dipping completely into water while recording video, works great. Sony Ericsson claims that the phone can handle 30 minutes under water (up to 1m) without any damage. So its great while you go for a swim or playing any sports in rain add to that its specs are GREAT its got 3D sweep panorama just like Sony's cybershot has,its got mobile BRAVIA Engine, Wet-finger tracking which Motorola's Defy does...

Its the new nokia 1100 :D

First of all, let me start by saying what a terribly incompetent handler i am of objects. Some one might think i might have neurodegenerative disorders looking at how i drop things :D

Having said that, the new xperia active is a godsend for butterfinger clumsy people like me. I have dropped the cell phone from my hand, from my bed while sleeping, and then, just to test it, atleast from a height of 3 ft. The only thing it got was a few scratches on the screen guard.

The waterproofing works ...

All the features gel well together as an awesome sports phone (The specs however are just on par for a mid-range Android experience)

Good design
Good Display
Dragontrail scratch resistant glass
Easy to hold
Adreno 205 (3D games and Adobe Flash 720p)
Fitness Apps and GPS
Water proof
Xperia UI
Wet finger tracking

Battery is only 1200 mAh - 5hrs
3 inch display (No wide screen videos)
No secondary camera
Live view the 1 inch wrist display, which is included, may not be useful to most users.
Overpriced at nearly 20k

Too small screen size!

the phone is awesome in terms of specification and being water and dust proof is the only backdrop is the screen size..
its only a 3" LCD...paying 20k for a 3" inch screen can b a deal breaker....other wise its a superb phone...

Great Offering Marred by Pricing.

The device by itself is a great package but the real deterring factor is the pricing which is more than Xperia Ray.

This brings the facility of Secondary Camera which the Xperia Mini lacked.

If price in the current market Between 12k - 13k, this will sell like hot cake.

Not a Value for Money Phone

Water Proof, Dust Proof and shock Proof is it a joke ?

This Phone is no where near to Motorola Defy.

Please watch Youtube Videos and reviews about this phone.

For this price Sony Ericsson Active is a Piece of Shit.

There is no Pros about this phone when you compare with Defy.

Only Dumb People can buy this phone.
