Sony Xperia Go - Made to withstand your everyday life - White Dust and Water Resistant Life meets its match - A slim Android touch phone with extra durability Designed with beauty and brawn
Ups, downs and sudden showers. We’ve designed Xperia™ go to handle everything life dishes out. We gave it a scratch-resistant display, a battery-save mode for when you’re running late and made sure it had the highest water and dust resistance of any smartphone. As a final trick, we put all this toughness in an elegant costume. At just 9.8 mm, you’d never guess that slim Xperia™ go is a giant on durability. Finally, a smartphone that’s as stylish as it is strong.
Strong enough for life’s little problems

Like a drop into the flour while you’re baking, a “surprise” dive into the fishbowl and whatever else daily life has in store.

 A Standby time specification is an industry standard. The only
intention is to allow comparison of different mobile phones under the
same circumstances. Factors including - but not limited to - network,
settings, location, movement, signal strength and cell traffic strongly
effect standby power consumption. Standby time specifications of
different mobile phones can therefore be compared only in a controlled
laboratory environment. When any mobile phone is used in real life -
i.e., under circumstances for which the mobile phone is intended - the
actual standby time could be considerably lower and will be strongly
dependent on the factors mentioned above.
 This product is
rated IP67 according to the International Protection classification
system. IP67 indicates that when the phone is correctly mounted to
maintain its dust and water resistant qualities, there is no ingress of
dust (digit 6) and that ingress of water (digit 7) in harmful quantity
shall not be possible if the device is dropped in fresh water under up
to 1 meter of submersion for a duration of maximum 30 minutes.
