From long time rugged phones have been around, however they have always been made for a particular audience. Due to that, they are mainly niche products that in majority of cases are difficult to look at, however can stand the forces of nature in such a way that rest of the handsets cannot. So, it seems that Sony is attempting to moderate that by launching Sony Xperia Go that is a latest rugged model, which attempts to remain attractive and slim. Till the some extent, the firm has captured its goal, however there are few elements, which finally hold the phone back. Check out why we are saying the Sony Xperia Go is worthy, however not great phone.
Sony Xperia Go’s physical design is among its powerful and bad aspects at the same time. At first look, the phone looks nice. It is bit slim, it is comparatively compact, and in all there is not anything bad about it that is a big plus in today’s phone trend. It is also bit indicative of the Xperia sola that is a nice thing. However, the plastic, which Sony has utilized for casing of phone, is good, it’s unfriendly to the touch at best, and disappointing at worst – it bases on your preferences. It would have been much better in case Sony had just gone for glossy, standard finish, however no; they had to feel you regret that you have bought this phone each time you hold this in your hand.
Functionality and Interface -
Sony Xperia Go is an Android 2.3 equipped phone, with the maker’s own custom interface on top. We have always preferred Sony’s UI therefore we are ideally fine with it being preloaded here also. It seems amazing and is comparatively easy to use, minimum in comparison with other maker’s UIs. Majority of the built-in applications are re-skinned therefore that they fit the in all theme of interface; however their functionality has not been moderated much. Might be the hugest software alteration is got with Timescape and widgets connected to it.
It has 5MP camera that features few valuable options such as focusing modes, scene modes, exposure and many more. But, we did not have really huge expectations from its camera features, and it turned out we were correct not to have such. Details can be a much bright areas, lot better incline to get overexposed, and colours to inclined to be bit on warm side – they bit much sums up the concerns of camera. However all in all, it clicks okay images. We have seen much bad results, therefore in all the clicks are good enough for smartphone of this class. Video can be recorded at 720p maximum resolution. It is majorly smooth, hence there is the occasional stutter each now and then, and however not much than what we had get from majority of competing handsets. We were amazingly surprised by seeing good-looking video, and mic of phone clicks few really nice audios.
Sony Xperia Go is average device no issue how you look at it. It comprises bit good processor for its class, and we can enjoy low-resolution screen, however the bad plastic casing might ruin the experience for you. Remain it will be ideal in case you can attempt the phone out 1st prior to buy, to look in case you can go with it. Apart from that, and its Gingerbread nature, the Sony Xperia Go is bit decent mid-range handset that will come in handy for those who frequently have to utilize their mobile device in conditions, which contain dangers of dust or water. In those cases, the Xperia go will definitely be appreciated.
