The 5MP camera of the Xperia go features some useful options like scene modes, focusing modes, exposure and so on and so forth. However, we didn't have really big expectations about this camera, and it turned out we were right not to have such.

Details could be a lot better, bright areas tend to get overexposed, and colors tend to be a bit on the warmer side – that pretty much sums up the problems of the camera. But all in all, it takes passable photos. We've seen much worse results, so overall, the pictures are good enough for a phone of this class.

Video can be recorded at a maximum resolution of 720p. It's mostly smooth, although there's the occasional stutter every now and then, but not more than what you'd get from most competing handsets. We were nicely surprised by the good looking video, and the mic of the phone captures some really good audio.

Of course, thanks to its dual-core CPU, the Xperia go doesn't have problems playing whatever video you throw at it, which is always good to know.

The stock music player is simple, yet elegant, and features the xLOUD option as well as a number of EQ presets and a custom setting. It all looks and sounds good, although we weren't blown away by the speaker.
