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.

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 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 device is slim with dimensions of 60.3 x 111 x 9.8 mm and is quite light with a weight of 110 g.

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:

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...

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...

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...

Go for it!

I bought my Yellow Xperia Go a month back and I LOVE it! It's my first smartphone, my budget was 10k-ish and I think I got everything I wanted out of it. My other options were the Xperia U and Nokia Lumia 520 but ultimately the external storage and Android in Go is what made me go for it!

What I expected from the Go:
-decent and different look
-fun, sunny colour
-Android! For random games like Slice Ice and easy downloads more than anything. I don't fall in love with too many Apps but I'd li...
