Finally got my Xperia Active, what a breath of fresh air, quick, and so "just right in the hand" small screen is not a problem (so far) and if I was to do an unboxing video it would take a time due to the extras in the box, Active view, arm band, sports ear buds, etc. Very solid feel, very LOUD, this is the perfect pub phone (Tim) and I think this is the perfect phone. I still have my N9 but cannot justify taking my sim out of a phone that can handle any thing that I want from a day to day phone like the Xperia Active, my week consists of walking the dog, work office and hands on IT (crawling under desks), supporting my son on a wet, cold football field and once a month walking (slowly) up a hill, this phone ticks all the boxes ..... oh did I mentions it is fast for a 1GHz processor.

Haven't done any testing myself but there is plenty of people on you tube testing its waterproof properties, the bungs covering the ports are a better fit and seem more substantial than those on the Defy I had.

Razr has been dispatched, could this be used completely case-less like my Defy, video of water being poured on such a high tech phone was very impressive, please don't let it be to big

Motorola Razr being sent back, screen has a constant tint to it and twice it has locked up only allowing me to swipe up and down not a press, which was interesting because I couldn't reset it, press the power button and the power off box pops up but couldn't press it and battery is non removable. Unfroze after a couple of minutes but still worrying. Also most apps, even the stock ones do not fill the screen leaving a blank (yellowish) area below the information. Lesson learnt I am keeping to screens below 4", now to talk myself into buying an N9!

I find it unsettling that all these Symbian users are practically forcing themselves to find things they like in Windows mobile just because thats the path that Nokia have chosen. It is difficult to test they different operating system in real life, but the mobile phone users has never had such quality choice so exploit DSR and try all the platforms before really suits you as an individual.
