In normal use the screen is fine. Its fast (as you would expect from a dual core) and it is very pocket-able. In fact given that the resolution is small, matched with the dual core (cpu/gpu has to do less work), it actually makes it one of the fastest phones available.
I haven't tested the waterproofness but it seems to be sealed well, with the only slots for sim and microsd (no removable battery). Wet finger tracking is a bonus, try using a touch phone in rain its impossible but this fine.
Bad points are the build (cheap back cover, no spare), charging port cover is also pathetic and could easily fall off (meaning no water/dust resistance). On button also does not feel as though it will last. Also i don't think it'll take a drop as well as others in its class like the defy.
Ill give it 4/5. Could of done with better resolution but did need a better build.
The phone is blindingly fast, it's a dual core running the old Gingerbread after all, the specs of this phone far exceed that required to make this OS really fly. The memory of 512MB is a bit stingy, but you really wouldnt notice in normal use.
However, I was so disappointed that this phone exhibits a Gingerbread bug that is literally 2 1/2 years old. Worse then that the old workaround now doesnt work. The phone has an underscore character in the hostname, this is an illegal character according to the specification for networking. This bug is all over the internet - there are two bugs logged on the google android bug tracker. If your router is fully compliant with the specification then you may struggle to get an IP address from it when trying to connect over WiFi. My old HTC wildfire has the same issue - and it occurred just after a gingerbread update that changed the hostname from "Unknown" to "Android_[random digits]". The workaround was to give the phone a static IP address, that way it doesnt use the DHCP of the router to get an ip address. This worked fine on the Wildfire, however on the Xperia Go...it doesnt use the static ip you give it;it always tries to use Dhcp.
Now this might not be an issue for you, to be fair a lot of routers will take the invalid hostname and use it. But my router does not like it, and even worse with the static ip workaround not working I was left with a wifi-less phone. Also worth pointing out that even if you do get connected at home, it may not work at the airport, work, wireless hotspots etc - basically anywhere that has equipment that implements the hostname specifications 100%. I contacted Sony and pointed out the Google bugreports for this issue but they just kept coming back telling me to do a factory reset. After literally 5 emails from them in the same copy and paste format not listening to me I threw in the towel. In the end I returned the phone with a heavy heart. It's a great looking and acting handset, but without data it just wasnt worth it. Buyer beware: will your home wifi work, will you be able to connect to hotspots. You'll be taking a chance. Search the internet and the Xperia forums, the issue is all over the place sadly.
Some people have complained about the build, but personally I think it's pretty sturdy. The back cover is not 'flimsy', and all in all, it's very compact and well built. The waterproofing-rubber ports are very secure, and I have tested the Go's waterproofing on several occassions. (It's quite handy to just run it under the tap, and to wash off any greasy finger marks.) I've also had it in my jacket when I was skiing, and it did get very damp, and warm, for a prolonged period of time, and it survived it!
The screen is lovely. The resolution, although perhaps lower than on other smart-phones, is fine for me and the colours are quite vibrant- although could maybe be a bit more so. I haven't watched a film on it, but that's what a TV is for anyway. It's meant to be scratch-resistant, but I put a screen protector on it anyway. I did have it in my pocket and rattling around in my bag and there is not a single mark. But anyway, better safe than sorry.
It is very quick, and the touchscreen is very easy to use. Even in the rain or when it's damp, due to its wet-finger tracking, its very responsive and fine to use. The camera isn't too bad. Being a photographer, its 5 megapixels seem quite measly, but I was quite impressed (and suprised). In the daylight, its very good: good colour, good sharpness. But in gloomy places, it becomes pretty shocking: hugely distorted and a hell of a lot of noise (probably due to an automatic increase in ISO.). The panorama function is pretty good aswell, and worked quite impressively.
Music I haven't really tried, because I have an MP3 player, but the speaker seems pretty good, and I've heard that the in-built music player is also very good.
As a phone, talking is very clear and the qwerty keyboard takes a while to get used to, but I now really like. It also has the extra appeal of having a small LED torch, situated just beside the camera, and it really is very, very good. Also very handy! (This doubles up as the flash.)
It charges very quickly, just about hour for a full charge. It does use up a lot battery-life, but I've gotten two days light use out of it- one day with very heavy/frequent use. And that's with none of the power-saving modes activated.
I think this phone looks spectacular: its slim, sleek design and quality. It's a hell of a lot cheaper than anything Apple has/ever will produce somthing of the same quality. The size is perfect for me, and I wouldn't really want anything bigger. I have bought a case for it (one that snaps on the back) and it's still very slim.
Overall, it's great, I love it, great build, great design, great buy. It's well worth your money!
