|A tough Android smartphone for an active life. Xperia active is dust proof and water resistant to handle whatever comes its way. The display is scratch resistant and even lets you scroll when your fingers are wet. The phone comes with a gear kit and is preloaded with sports apps so you can plan, monitor and log your training from your sofa or on the slopes.|
Customer Reviews of Sony Ericsson Xperia Active ST17i Black White Android 2.3 Dust & Water Resistant Unlocked Phone
Had this already for two weeks. I previously had an x10 mini pro and used it for sports and felt a bit flimsy, but it was not meant for that. The Active has all the same sensors (plus a barometer) and ANT+ capability than its predecessors, and it is really tough. I drop it anywhere without even think about it. I've already drawn it, scratched it and kicked it. It takes it all, no problem. The Wifi range seems a bit weaker than the x10 mini pro, and I miss the real keyboard, but it is all part of the compromise, i think. Dry or wet and sweaty fingers get the same response from the screen. However, the screen flickers a bit once in a while from day one, but not anoying enough to return it. Will see in the next weeks.
