ray you forget to state that the acro s is as proof as the advance (also known as XPERIA go), so basically we get the xperia s, only its water, dust, and shatter proof.

If that is true, that is a HUGE selling point. I was about to post as to why all the rugged phones (Casio Commander, Motorola Admiral) have to be so low end?

If the Acro S is truly rugged, then my enthusiasm for Sony just grew. Of the Android handset makers, Motorola, Samsung and Sony are the ones I would buy from.

the acro s isn't the same as the xperia go.

the acro s meets the industry standard ip55 and ip57 that means the phone is protected against dust-limited to ingress (no harmful deposits) and the effects of immersion between 15 cm and 1 m for 30 minutes.

the go meets the industry standard ip67 that means Xperia go is protected against dust and the effects of immersion between 15 cm and 1 m for 30 minutes.

I LOVE SONY PRODUCTS
But I think non of there phones are on par with the OneX or S3.
The Gx seem's okay!

I wish Sony made more CDMA devices. It was surprising how Verizon got the Xperia Play, but they had to sacrifice their beautiful UI for the standard Android UI. *sighs* And of course Sprint NEVER gets any Sony phones. Ever.

I would snatch up a high end CDMA Sony phone on Sprint day one. Three of my last 4 phones have been HTC, I'm burnt out on HTC. The Galaxy S3 just doesn't impress me visually. Hardware looks and touchwiz = bleh. I wouldn't make it through two years with the phone.

C'mon Sony, take my money!

It's time for all phones to be penta-band by now.
Also, it is an absolute shame that Sony Came out with the light bar (which distinguished their products from all other rectangle smartphones on the market), but they're phasing it out and now making everything (including flagships) look like mid-range crap.
