Three-resistance Xperia Go

8/29/2012 9:35:18 PM

We call Xperia go “three-resistance” because it is water-resistant, dust-resistant and scratch-resistant (display).

It is small and light; the cover is made of plastic; the front side is 2-layer screen identical to Xperia sola so it looks modern and youthful. Connection ports have plastic lids so they can prevent dust and water from penetration. The inner sides of these lids are covered in blue and it looks contrastive to the white, which looks very nice and creates high aesthetic.

The screen size is 3.5 inches (identical to iPhone so the body is small. The back side is simple but looks nice because it is a block of plastic, not many pieces join together. This is the lumpy plastic like Poly Carbonate. And if it’s true, the capability of scratch-resistant will be great. Sony said that they equipped Xperia with a technology called “Wet Finger Tracking”, enabling users to act on screen even when in water. I tried putting it under a water tap directly, and realized that I hardly acted on screen. When water stopped running, the screen was still wet then I could do some tasks on screen, and it was quite precise. The device seemed to work well after being out under a water tap and even being soaked in a glass full of water.

A pity point for the device is that the resolution is only 320x480, quite low, so the display quality is not high and the images are broken a lot. Currently, it is running smoothly on Android 2.3 at high processing speed, and it may reach 4.0 in near future.
