  • not so smart about "go"
    Rakesh Taranalli (May 25, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    i bought this phone a year ago .the reason i chose this smart phone,because of its waterproof and scratch resistent feature in a smart phone.but i feel that this phone is priced way too much and after few days the processor starts to slow down the has promised the jelly bean update but after updating, the phone hangs sometime and 512mb ram may not run few apps smoothly.cannot play hd videos,camera is not good. and the inbuilt battery is one of the disadvantage,as it cant be repaired if damaged.the only plus point is its totally waterproof and can use as roughly as you can. i dont recommend this phone because i feel that nowadays very great phones with great specs than this is available in the market with affordable price

  • One of the Toughest Smartphones ever...!! :)
    Mihir Champaneria (Jul 4, 2019) on Flipkart
    I have been using Xperia Active phone since 8 months and its same waterproof and dust proof and am planning to go to Xperia Go. because of foll reasons: -> 1GHz Dual core processor -> USB on the Go - works as USB host(many don't know this feature). -> Fully scratch proof body. -> SenseMe application from Sony. - plays songs according to your mood. (this feature also many dont know). 5MP camera is enough, as the photo clarity is very good from Sony And with my experience from Xperia avtive i would say that IP67 (water and dust resistant) phones from sony are simply awesome. I have taken lots of underwater photos and even dropped my phone by mistake from a waterfall but its still intact. The only Cons I see here is: -> Battery cant be removed. -> No front camera.

  • Sony Xperia Go vs. Sony Xperia J
    Nitin Patil (Nov 4, 2019) on Flipkart
    Newly launched Xperia J is mostly getting compared with Xperia GO by Sony fan followers. Here are some facts: 1. Screen: J has 4 inch screen (854X480 FWVGA - Full Wide Video Graphics Array) where Go has 3.5 inch screen (480X320 HVGA Half Size Video Graphics Array). Though resolution of GO seems to be lesser than J, it has Mobile Bravia Engine giving awesome display for video, photo etc. Due to Mobile Bravia Engine, lower screen resolution doesn't matter in GO whereas J doesn't have Mobile Bravia Engine. 2. CPU & GPU: Xperia GO is much ahead than Xperia J in CPU as well as GPU. GO is equipped with 1 GHz Cortex-A9, Dual Core and ARM Mail 400 where as J is equipped with 1 GHz Cortex-A5 and Adreno 200. Having A9 Dual core processor, GO is better performing than J. Also mail400 again cover the low resolution of GO compared with Adreno 200 of J. 3. Memory: Both mobiles are having 512 MB RAM. GO is inbuilt with 8GB Memory (approx. 4GB user available memory) and J with 4GB phone memory (approx. 2.2 GB user memory). Both supports upto 32GB Micro SD Card. 4. GO is having 107kbps GPRS & 296kbps EDGE speed whereas J supports 86kbps GPRS and 237kbps EDGE speed. fast web browsing in GO. Other points: No front camera in go, J does have. HD recording with 5MP camera in GO, J is having VGA Recording with 5MP camera. OS for J is Android 4 ICS whereas for GO it is Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Recently in news, Go is now upgradable to Android 4 ICS. GO is Water resistant and Dust Free. Overall, except absence of front camera, GO is the choice as in most of points, GO is way ahead than J.

  • Smart and Sturdy
    ANUJ KULSHRESHTHA (Sep 4, 2019) on Flipkart
    I choose Sony as my previous experience with Sony Xperia ST15 which I bought for my wife last October is so far good. While choosing a smart phone for myself, I was only concerned about the care associated with the touch screens such as avoiding wet touch and the like. But XperiaGo has overcomed that concern. The Phone is good as per the price, infact better than most of the other smart phones of this range. I guess features are more or less same as other andriod devices. 5 Meg camera is sufficient for me as when it comes to perfect photoshot I prefer my Sony CyberShot. The screen is crstal clear and dimensions are perfect to handle the phone. I recommend this phone for those who are looking for 1. Good brand 2. Fair Andriod Device not looking to 1. spend over 20K on phone 2. not expecting extra ordinary features.
