Sony Xperia Go: analysis, user experience

By -

It’s not all high-end devices . In fact not all are either conventional terminals ranges. In between we find something special phones with features that provide a bonus to what we know as Smartphone.

The Sony Xperia Go is one of them. What’s so special? For two main features, namely that it is a smartphone and waterproof anti-rayajos screen . And when we talk about these two things, we’re not talking about supporting splashing and that if we put it in the pocket will not scratch. With the Xperia Go diving and can record videos or take pictures with him, and we can stand up above . No joke, I’ve tried and display hold. Not bear weight on a single point of this, but if distributed over its surface.

Let’s first terminal with itself. What we find in the Xperia Go? Let’s take a look at its main features :

  • Size: 111 x 60.3 x 9.8 mm
  • Weight: 110 grams
  • Display: LCD with backlit technology 3.5 “and resolution 320 x 480 pixels at 165 PPI density
  • 5 Megapixel camera with 720p HD recording
  • Processor: Dual-core 1GHz
  • RAM: 512MB
  • Internal Memory: 8GB (approximately 6GB available for user)
  • Platform: Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Battery: 1305 mAh

General Operation

The Xperia Go no longer a midrange terminal . We find features that take you closer to the low end, as the 3.5 “screen of very low resolution, or pulling more towards high, as the dual-core processor at 1GHz. Come on, we were in the middle range.

Despite its only 512MB of RAM the phone works really well. Of course we do not find that fluidity that give us high-end devices, but neither would expect something like the Xperia Go.

However navigate the phone, access the basic functions and what is the overall user experience , which ultimately is what matters to what the user just thinking about the phone, we found a fairly good performance.

And is there to celebrate than a high-end terminal is already updated to Android Ice Cream Sandwich , especially when we see that many high-end terminals are not doing, and do not even talk about Jelly Bean. Version 4.1 or 4.2 was too much for the Xperia Go but certainly the fact of having passed since the original ICS Gingerbread to hit the market is that much of what has made it a terminal operation as achieved.


We all know that Sony has a very good multimedia section, and it is rare to fail here. Worst of all is its screen , which however small, 3.5 “is still an acceptable size and many users still prefer. The problem is the resolution, with only 320 x 480 pixels leaves a density of 165 PPI, very low . This not only affects how we see the general navigation on the phone, but the preview of the pictures or videos, with the remaining granulated so unpleasant.

But the truth is that we have to remember again that we are in a range that somewhere must be cut, and the screen is one of those pieces that gets it more effectively. It is indeed a weakness, but totally understandable.

The sound is great . Sony has taken great care this detail, than other brands leave long you are not superior range.To give you the idea, I am using the Nexus 4, and this Xperia Go has better sound quality. I could not tell if the sound is identical, but I think it has the same chip as the Xperia U, because they are very similar qualities in this respect.


We have a 5 megapixel camera with maximum resolution 2592 x 1944 pixels, it also records video in HD at 720p with 30 frames per second . The fear of the possible poor quality of this camera when you turn on your phone and see the images before shooting through its low-resolution screen is large, but the good news is that once we made the picture very well.

Maybe not the best camera in a smartphone on the market, but without question is the consideration they deserve. It’s nice to find that these aspects have been kept and worked without having to go to toil away a fortune on a mobile.

The colors are very vivid, perhaps the only downside is that saturate a bit, a characteristic detail and Sony , which is a problem for some but it is now a pleasure for others.

Interesting that achieved good quality pictures with high contrast , from a very large shadow to an illuminated by the sun.

Very surprised by the good quality of the camera , without being outstanding, meets quantity for which requires extra power to make pictures or HD videos underwater.

t’s a very interesting phone located in the middle range for a price of 249 € free offers very interesting extra features compared to what we find in other terminals, such as the anti-rayajos screen, the ability to dive or high resistance that is against shock . A great phone for those who go far up the mountain or for those who often end up with full phone from bumps and scratches, in fact I have already put the target in this terminal, great for sports, especially water.
