    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.

    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.

    Sony Xperia Go vs. Sony Xperia J

    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 Br...

    One of the Toughest Smartphones ever...!! :)

    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 ...

    Smart and Sturdy

    I choose Sony as my previous experience with Sony Xperia ST15 which I bought for my wife last October is so far good. While choosing a smart phone for myself, I was only concerned about the care associated with the touch screens such as avoiding wet touch and the like. But XperiaGo has overcomed that concern. The Phone is good as per the price, infact better than most of the other smart phones of this range. I guess features are more or less same as other andriod devices. 5 Meg camera is suff...

    don't say anything about it unless you own it....

    Hey, its a waste of time giving reviews if you are not owing this phone and saying about it.. As far as the looks are concerned(which I can say without actually owning the phone), xperia go is far better than defy.

    Amazing Phone

    I have been using this phone since Oct 2012 and I can say that it's a great phone. I purchased it over others because of it's water-resistance property. It is also resistant to shocks. It works just fine even after falling down on hard ground 5-6 times.

    I would say that it was much faster with Android 2.3 but Android 4.0 brings with it a lot of other nice features! It does get a little slow if you're trying to run 5-6 things together (I tend to do that), but other than that I have no, absol...

    Xperia Go and Sony Support.

    Hi All,

    We had purchased xperia go in Bangalore and had network problem. I had sent it for replacement and haven't got it since almost 50 days. One of the worst ever support I have noticed is Sony.. Please close of your sales.
