Smart, Sleek & Durable

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

For something that's such a vital part of life, most smartphones can't handle life's little bumps. Now there's an Android smartphone you never have to worry about. Xperia go is a dust-proof, water-resistant phone. Sure, you can take it on a hike through the rainforest. But it's made for less dramatic challenges. Like a drop into the flour while you're baking, a "surprise" dive into the fishbowl and whatever else daily life has in store.
