          As far as the internal memory, it was limited yes but the 50 mb free thing is an Android limitation, it always wants 10% free of whatever you have to allow you to install updates.

            It served me well for six years. I dropped it and drowned it so many times and it survived without any problems. Other rugged phones I consequently owned can not even approach the durability of Xperia Active. I'd like to buy similar phone with a bit larger screen.

                This is the worst mobile phone I have ever had. It had problems since I newly bought it. Often its "back" button doesn't work. Although it has more than 50 mb free memory, I can't download any application requiring for example 10 mb free memory.

                              I agree it should have a front camera, but other than that i love it, no complains,
                              I am however annoyed that i cannot find anyone in my country who sells the screensaver and case,
                              I would recommend this phone to anyone

                                  Recently my Xperia Active had a successful 3 year anniversary. Unfortunately I broke my screen recently. While I was sitting on a chair and uncarefully trying to pull it out of my pocket it dropped on the floor, facing the screen. Oh dear, it was very lame. It came out as a surprise because ... it was made to be tough, right? The (outer) glass broke in one line horizontally through the place where the clock is on the display. At least everything is working fine and it is barely noticeable while lcd is on.
                                  To sum up, it can break and as easy as s#it. I believed that the screen is the last thing I should worry about.

                                  On the other hand, it also became very slow due to Google apps and services. I did a factory reset (stock rom) and installed necessary apps manually, while most of the Google stuff being disabled or left as stock apps like Maps. Then it became quite quick again performing everyday tasks (internet, mail, camera, music and making calls). Otherwise phone is becoming obviously outdated if(!) you do not set up it manually and using not-a-lot of apps.

                                  Not taking above mentioned as very important it is a very good and reliable device which actually fits(!!) in a pocket (just like before big screen progression).

                                        Still owning this phone and working in a perfectly very good condition, except the charger protector torn off just a couple of days ago.
                                        they say, be careful while buying a phone, but after buying this phone, you never really need to care about this one... I've tested this phone to the maximum, and I still do not find any other good phone like this. Now I am very much afraid to change my phone. Really loving this phone.... Glad I've this phone... :) :)
