Watch Sony Xperia active used as bait in freezing water, stepped on and tied up to a snowboard

The water- and shockproof handset gets used as bait in freezing water, and then literally breaks the ice. He also ties it up to his snowboard while filming a video with it, for some alternative action shots, steps on it in the snow, and tosses it around. We'll save you the suspense - the Xperia active survives all that abuse, but its journey through the torture chambers is pretty entertaining to watch...

And you know what a great little handset. My wife has the Billabong edition, and I got it for her as she needed an indestructable phone, especially with my 2 yr old by her side during the day, and it has taken a boat load of punishment over the last 3-4 months already - still without a scratch and just brilliant.

I really hope Sony gets ICS out for it soon though. Gingerbread is getting a little old hat now..

I owe this phone
ok for that solid construction
but it cannot be used as a phone :
- the sound is very bad
- the battery dies in some hours
- it restarts all the time
- the reception is poor
- the user interface is boring with the corner buttons
