At the end of last year, we reported on YouTube user crimi8787 various attempts to destroy his Xperia active. He subjected the smartphone to torture trials against a Stanley knife, hammer and even ran over the handset with a Jeep! The rugged smartphone survived every test, a testament to the super build quality of the handset.
We’ve come across another couple of videos where crimi8787 subjects his Xperia active to more abuse. The first video shows him attaching the handset to a fishing rod and plunging it into icy waters, later in the video he also uses the handset to break through the ice (he was successful too!) Another video shows the Xperia active attached to a snowboard whilst recording video at the same time. It’s safe to say the Xperia active survived both events, we do wonder whether its successor, the Xperia go, will be as indestructible. Xperia active – the Chuck Norris of smartphones.
