We all want a water resistant smartphone. If that phone is also tough as nails when it comes to scratches and accidental drops, all the better. If that phone is easy on the eyes and comes with all mod cons then it’s time for cake and confetti.
Sony Xperia GO
Enter the Sony Xperia GO. If you’ve tried out other “rugged” water resistant smartphones in the past, you’ve probably realized that ruggedness comes with a price. That price is appearance. Let’s face it – most ultra-durable handsets are ugly as sin.
The Sony Xperia GO flips this (true) stereotype on its head. At a slim and sleek 9.8mm, this is one stylish little handset. The water resistant smartphone is apparently safe at depths of up to one meter for up to thirty minutes. We’re not eager to submerge a gorgeous phone in the lake to test this out. However, it’s reassuring to know that if the Sony Xperia GO does suddenly leap from your pocket while you’re jogging and land in a puddle, there’s no need to panic.
Water Resistant Smartphone – General SpecsA water resistant smartphone can’t rest solely on the laurels of its durability. The Sony Xperia GO doesn’t try to – this handset rivals the best on the market in terms of features which are consistently ranked high-importance by consumers.
The Sony Xperia GO comes loaded with the beloved Android Gingerbread platform. Yes, we know, Gingerbread is no longer the latest and greatest. It is a highly reliable platform, however, and the GO is rumored to feature an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich upon release. If the release does not come upon release, the Sony Xperia GO will be fully upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich as soon as you get your hot little hands on it.
Featuring a 1GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of installed memory (upgradable to 32GB via microSD card), a 5mp camera, 720p video and 50GB of free cloud storage good through the end of the year, this water resistant smartphone is packed with enough goodies to keep most consumers extremely happy. The 3.5 inch TFT touchscreen is not only scratch-resistant, but its touchscreen capabilities can detect wet fingers. Trying to look up instructions on changing a tire while stuck on the side of the road in the pouring rain? Not fun, but at least your phone won’t let you down.
We know what you’re thinking – only 5mp? No 1080p? No second camera? This isn’t a phone for die-hard video-philes or shutterbugs. However, out in the real world, where this scratch resistant handset is designed to be used, you’ll find that the pictures and video it takes are sharp, vibrant and crystal-clear.
Durability of Sony’s Water Resistant Smartphone
What’s the bottom line regarding the Sony Xperia GO? If you crave a water resistant smartphone that actually looks good while it stands up to moisture, scratches and drops, this is the handset for you. Anybody who spends a lot of time outdoors, either at work or at play, is going to deeply appreciate this durable, water-resistant smartphone, especially since its features make it highly competitive with ultra-delicate handsets. Take it jogging, take it to work, take it camping – the Sony Xperia GO can handle (just about) anything you or Mother Nature can dish out.
