Sony Xperia go goes through hell in ultimate crash test

Sony Xperia go goes through hell in ultimate crash test
The Sony Xperia go is a neat little rugged handset running on Android and looking better than most ruggedized devices we’ve seen. But just how prone to torture it really is? German folks from tech site A1 were curious to know and put it through hell. And hell for a phone is a swimming pool, sand, dirt, and getting run over a car.

The Xperia go survives all that and goes through some additional challenges but will it live on to tell the story after all the torture? The resilient handset will definitely surprise you and the video is fresh and fun, especially for that side of us angry at our phones and wanting to put them through the same kind of pressure. Check it out below.

GSMArena is wrong! A1 ( - mobile operator in Austria. Always check source. And XPERIA go is so cool!

"THIS IS WHAT I CALLED A REAL CRASH TEST!" I agree, maybe phone is really not bad, but I don't see here any test, it is just a advertisement.
