The Sony Ericsson Xperia Active is one of the most unique Android smartphones to be released. The Active launched in October 2011 as a device marketed towards those with active lifestyles. The most prominent physical feature of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Active is the small clip area at the bottom of the smartphone that can be used to attach the device to belt or rope so that you won’t have to worry about the device falling and hitting the ground. The Xperia Active also had a rather rugged build design so that it could put up with a beating if it were ever to be dropped.

The Xperia Active was an interesting concept but unfortunately Sony did not rehash the idea with better hardware. As a result, the only Active smartphone available from Sony Ericsson is the st17i which is very limited in the hardware department. Firstly, the Xperia Active has a tiny 3.0 inch display with a poor 320 x 480 resolution. The device has just 512MB of RAM to deal with and the processor is a single core 1.0GHz Scorpion packaged inside the Snapdragon S2 chipset. The S2 does come with a standalone GPU chip too but it is only the Adreno 205 which is unfortunately not up to the task of rendering any of the latest mobile game releases.

From factory default settings the Sony Ericsson Xperia Active st17i will be on Gingerbread 2.3, but there is an available upgrade which will bring the device to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. However, even with the upgrade to Android 4.0, the device is severely limited and you’ll only really be able to use the device for basic texting and calling and internet browsing through a browser with a very small footprint such as Opera Mini. If you already own the Sony Ericsson Xperia Active and you’re frustrated with the poor performance, rooting it will allow you to overclock the processor slightly and delete unwanted bloatware. Without root the device has an incredibly hard time dealing with the Android operating system.
