The person who said that outdoorsy type people should not own a smartphone have definitely not heard of Sony’s latest waterproof smartphones which are so smart that they can even take photos or HD videos underwater. Mobile technology has evolved significantly in the past few years, and developers are working relentlessly in order to come up with great new features to enhance these superb devices. This is how the underwater feature was first developed, and even if it may seem useless for some, active people will not have to worry about their smart-phones any longer. Sony, in particular, has managed to set itself apart from its competition with some truly intelligent and elegant smart-phone models that have been successfully sold world-wide. Let’s take a look at three Sony smartphones which can be safely immersed into water.
1. Sony Xperia Z Ultra
This superb device is without a doubt Sony’s android flagship. It is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor which is considered the fastest and most capable processor at the moment. In addition, it is also the slimmest, yet largest full HD smartphone display in the world. According to developers it can be used underwater up to a depth of 1.5 meters, and it can also take photos and videos at great quality. In terms of appearance it is undoubtedly the most beautiful smart-phone you will ever see. The colored LED added at the inferior part of the device can be personalized according to taste, and it will color differently according to the dominant photo in a photo, or according to the type of alert that you have received.
2. Sony Xperia Acro S
The number two contender from Sony is the Xperia Acro S. In terms of design it is very similar to the Xperia Ultra Z, with the only difference that it does not have the colored LED attached to it. It was announced at the same time with the Xperia Go, but it has a few extra features that you should consider. It is a sturdy, scratch-resistant device which is suitable for people who are always on the run. The 12 megapixel fast capture camera is the signature mark of Sony, and the 4.3 inch HD display will also enable you to hold video calls with no problems. For business people who need VoIP service calls, this device is the best possible choice. As far as water and dust resistance is concerned, the Acro S has passed the IP 55 test with flying colors. All of these features are powered by an inbuilt 1.5 GHz dual core processor that runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
3. Sony Xperia Go
Sony Xperia Go is the successor of Sony Xperia Active, and we could safely say that developers have done a great job with this smart-phone model. It is true that it is not as advanced as the Xperia Z Ultra, but it is still a wonderful device that encapsulates the best features of Sony. It is recommended to outdoor enthusiasts as it has a classy yet compact design. Like the two models mentioned above, it is also highly resistant to dust and water, and it has successfully passed the IP67 certification. This means that it can be submerged under water for 30 minutes. The 5 megapixel rear shooter camera with 720 HD recording capabilities and the small 3.5 inch display will provide you with excellent image quality. As we mentioned earlier, it is clearly not the best smartphone from Sony, but it is still more than enough for users that want to access information fast, take photos and experience the best that Android has to offer.
In conclusion, there are many waterproof smartphones available on the market at the moment, but Sony has managed to take things to a whole new level. It bolsters elegance of design, capable processors and advanced cameras.
