Sony Ericsson Xperia active review: The Rainmaker

So, this is an Xperia mini in a wetsuit. Some people will be less than impressed. One hand on the remote the other deep in that bag of chips. The kind that just cant be bothered.



The Xperia active on the other hand doesnt want to be on the safe side. It wont take rain checks. read more →

Android for the exercising socialite

It's another good performer from Sony Ericsson. The Xperia Active is little more than the company's Xperia Mini in a chunky, water-resistant case, but if that's what you want... this is it.



We're used to 'outdoor' mobile phones coming in awful shells and lacking features, but that's not the case here. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Active is a fast, usable, modern smartphone, that just so happens to be a bit better sealed off from rain and coffee than most. read more →

  • Touchscreen works well when wet
  • Snappy general operation
  • Fast and usable camera
  • Survived being dunked under water
  • Good battery life
  • Feels a little light and plasticky
  • Low screen resolution
  • Plenty of Sony Ericsson spam apps installed
  • Poor video format support

Sony Ericsson Xperia active Review

We can’t help but like the Sony Ericsson Xperia active , given the multitude of accessories you get out of the box, not to mention the weatherproofing and pre-installed fitness apps. We even grew to like the protruding bottom as it houses the lanyard which we found ourselves using all the time. Unfortunately however, nothing saves the Xperia active’s call in-call speaker. It really is a shame and weighs heavily on our rating. read more →

  • Waterproof and dustproof
  • Range of accessories in the box
  • Pre-installed fitness apps
  • Very poor call quality
  • Low in-call volume
  • Camera low on detail

Sony Ericsson Xperia Active review

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 excellent bundle including a runner's armband and has snappy performance which belies its run-of-the-mill specifications. Pricing is also very competitive with only the sizeable caveats of call quality and battery life dragging down an otherwise excellent smartphone. read more →

  • Practical, hardwearing design
  • Excellent performance
  • Slick UI & smart bundled apps
  • Extra included accessories
  • Poor call quality
  • Short battery life

Sony Ericsson Xperia Active

It's important to a lot of Aussies that their phone can take a spray of water during a day on the beach. The Xperia Active is water and dust resistant and should be able to take a bit of a beating as well.



Of the new phones announced by Sony Ericsson during CommunicAsia, the Active seems to be the one with the widest appeal. If you are looking for an alternative to the big names in the smartphone world this year, choosing a phone with a ruggedised body makes good sense. read more →
