  1. Sony Xperia Go looks promising. And the price at at Php14,490 that really is something.

  2. I wonder why they opted to use smaller capacity batteries? :( Mas mataas pa yung capacity ng battery ng ray sa U! :(

    The only problem that I could see here is the battery life. Outdoor adventurers couldn’t rely on this phone. It may be tough outside, but without anyjuice inside, guess, that would be the problem.

  4. I also agree to nameless.

    Comparing the specs, you’d be better off with an Xperia Sola. Which has twice the pixel density, a slightly bigger screen, the floating touch, and NFC. They sell for nearly the same price anyway.

  6. nakakadiappoint naman ang Sony kung kailan nakakaimpress yung phones nila…biglang embedded yung phone (except for this), walang SD card slot at mababa yung battery tsk…
    acro S na lang…konting hintay pa >_<

    I’ll definitely get one of this soon. It’s worth the price.

  8. pati dito may Thor? hehe

  9. I’m inlove with Xperia Go <3 i love the yellow one. it's like bumble bee. bumble go ♥

  10. Gonna save some money for this and get the white one. :D

  11. I don’t see how this phone could be priced at 14k. It looks like an Xperia mini, with only a few specs upgraded. Get a Sola instead.

    You guys dont know about technology, the battery is lower because it has 2 core, meaning its a more power efficient than a single core that why xperia ray has a higher battery cause it consume more…got it? dont be ignorant OK?

      Your english is the one that is ignorant. Just use Tagalog Mr. Technical Guy.

      Still Battery is crap! Not to mention the poor screen resolution!

  13. I’d still pick this one over Sola. Shock Resistant, Dust Resistant, Scratch Resistant, Water Resistant is something that you’ll rarely see from a phone.

  14. Whether Sola or Go, depende sa paggagamitan yan. I’d go for GO because I can play ‘tanching’ and piko with it. :P

    You ought not to bring out your sola to take pictures during songkran or pista ng San Juan either.
