Water and dust-resistant phones are a real hit! At least that’s what Sony thinks. Sony Xperia Go is a new phone resistant to these two types of “dirt” and as such has arrived in our offer, and is otherwise produced in three colors (yellow, black and white). As with most similar phones, the Sony Xperia Go focuses on practicality and reliability, while the quality of the hardware components is slightly lower compared to phones that do not have this protection feature, which is quite understandable. Let’s see what Sony Xperia Go has to offer…
The Sony Xperia Go is similar to other Xperia phones.
In terms of design, the Sony Xperia Go could not be said to be a phone designed to be “released into and down the water”, because its appearance is almost identical to larger models. Only the edges that are different colors suggest that there is something interesting with this phone. Speaking of edges, they are rounded, while the phone itself is 9.8 mm thick, which is somehow expected for a model like this.
Plastic flaps protect the openings on the phone from dust.
To keep every input and opening on your phone dust-free, there are small plastic “flaps” that prevent dirt particles from penetrating, which is good if you want your phone next to you on the beach but can be a little irritating when you want to plug your Sony Xperia Go let’s say to the filling, but a living person gets used too much worse things, let alone to such an almost insignificant little thing.
Sony Xperia Go likes to “swim” in the water.
In terms of water resistance, the Sony Xperia Go is ready to “dive” to depths of up to 1 meter. When the Sony Xperia Go gets so wet and then taken out, the screen is astonishingly undamaged and “undisturbed” and simply continues to work as if it never went to the wash.
The 3.5-inch screen can also serve solidly on dry land.
The screen itself has a 3.5-inch diagonal, but also a rather poor resolution of 320 × 480 pixels, which certainly does not correspond to the flood of omnipotent screens that are able to overshadow even the most trained eye. If we exclude the poorer quality of surfing the net and especially the poorer atmosphere in consuming multimedia, this screen can also pass on dry land.
The Sony Xperia Go has a 1 GHz processor, which is also not something striking in these times, nor the camera placed on the back of this good swimmer. The consistency of the Sony Xperia Go model is also reflected in the software, which is based on version 2.3 of Android, although it is heard from Sony that an update to version 4.0 will be enabled, this rumor remains to be confirmed.
Sony Xperia Go – pros and cons.
As the Sony Xperia Go does not impress smartphone users with the characteristics of a “spaceship”, it is clear that the most demanding will not rush towards it. On the other hand, Sony obviously didn’t even intend this model for them. It is focused, above all, on people for whom thinking about the potential damage to their phone is a real nightmare, and that is something quite ok. On the other hand, it would be foolish to say that the Sony Xperia Go does not have solid features, because it simply became impossible in the conditions of fierce competition, and this phone with a nice look will still have its fans in large numbers.
