Sony Xperia Go
Sony launches Sony Xperia Go, an Ultra Durable and Slim Android phone with Superb Resistance against Dust and Water. Also Quoted by Sony as “MADE TO RESIST“, the Xperia Go is powered by a STE NovaThor U8500 chipset with 1 GHz Dual-core processor and uses a Mali 400 GPU, A 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash which is capable of shooting up to HD 720p videos. Additionally, it comes with 8 GB of internal storage, (4 GB system-reserved + 4 GB usable) and expandable up to 32 GB using micro-SD cards.
This Device comes pre-loaded with Android 2.3 with of course Timescape UI,when We already have Android 4.0 capable Devices,itz a Huge let-Down for this Device,While Sony promised an Update Soon,Customers can expect better Performance with ICS.Till then you can enjoy preloaded applications and services such as 3D surround sound, strong twitter integration, SensME, Walkmate,etc and tons of Applications at Play Store.
A 1Ghz Dual Core Beast under the Hoods Powered with 512MB ram and Mali-400 GPU this phone has some Specs to Wipe out the performance vs Price Value in this Range.With a 3.5inch screen with features Like Scratch,Dust and Water resistance,Gesture input powered by Bravia engine which does enhance the display, creating sharper and clearer graphics . Other features Include AGPS,Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, AVRC,Micro USB 2.0etc and DLNA along with Normal Sensors.This Phone is Rugged and has a IP67 Certifications (up to 1 meter under water for 30 minutess).There is a Sim-Tray,SD-Slot and Basic Ports and Covers Enough Firm to Allow No Water Inside.Connectivity includes 3G(14.4 Mbps HSDPA/5.76 Mbps HSUPA),Wifi 802.11 b/g/n,etc.
There is Strangely no front cam,though we have a primary Cam,Which is 5MP with LED Flash capable of Capturing SuperB Stills and 720p HD recording.Another Huge Letdown is the HVGA Resolution,just a 320×480 resolution is Something Low for a device which Costs almost 19K
Its Priced at Somewhere Messy(19K INR) With Xperia Sola Selling at Around More or Less the Same price tag, Its a Huge mistake to Choose this Device Over Sola which has better Resolution, Larger Screen, Better Battery. Maybe We will see some Huge price Drop around 14-15K below Xperia U to make it Successfully Sell. You can purchase this smartphone from Amazon India, Flipkart and Snapdeal.
