Sony Xperia acro S Review
performs really, really well in this category. Its microphone captures clear voice tones that sound undistorted on the other side of the line, and the secondary mic filters out a great deal of the background noise. Perhaps the earpiece could have been a tad louder, but it definitely gets the job done once you crank it up to the max. Moreover, the loudspeaker is pretty loud, which makes video conversations quite enjoyable.
The 1,910mAh battery inside the Sony Xperia acro S is good for 7 hours of talk time, and will last for about 13 days if the device is in stand-by mode. These figures are kind of unimpressive considering the cell's rather high capacity, yet still, not all that bad. During our testing, we managed to get its battery from 100% down to 5% after 4 hours of intensive 3D gaming.
Let's be serious, people. The Sony Xperia acro S may not be the best smartphone out there, but it is the ultimate water-resistant Android handset that money can buy outside of Japan. Sure, we cannot deny that it is a bit bulky and its capacitive keys are kind of tricky to use, but its flaws are greatly outnumbered by its advantages, such as the catchy design, high-resolution display, capable camera, and rich multimedia feature set.
But those of you who find the Xperia acro S a bit pricy can also check out the more affordable Sony Xperia go, with a 3.5-inch screen, a dual-core processor, and water-tight body.
In case you don't need a water-resistant phone, there's always the slimmer Sony Xperia SL, which has a slightly faster processor, identical, high-res display, and promising camera. The ultra-thin HTC One S is also worth checking out, especially if you are into AMOLED screens. Sure, its display resolution is lower, but the processor inside it is a notch above the acro S' S3 chip.
- Resistant to dust and water damage
- Incredibly detailed display
- Rich multimedia feature set
- Thick and bulky
- Capacitive buttons are uncomfortable to use
