The Sony Xperia Acro S was released under the “Xperia” name with its closely related smartphones, such as the Xperia Sola, S, P and U. What makes the Acro S different from the others is its ability to withstand water, a trait also shared by the Xperia Go.

The Acro S sports a high pixel density of 342 ppi with its 4.3-inch 720p HD Reality Display, as opposed to the cheaper Xperia Go’s 165 pixel density screen. Both have their ports covered under watertight latches, though the Xperia Go has the higher IP67 rating as opposed to the Acro S’s IP57 rating. The Acro S is able to stay submerged in water for up to 30 minutes, at which water will start to enter the Acro S and render the smartphone unusable.

The Acro S has a design similar to those from the NXT line, such as the Xperia S, P and U, except that it lacks the lighted strip and its connectors are all found at the top instead of being at the side. The smartphone is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomn Snapdragon S3 MSM8260 and complemented with Adreno 220 graphics. It also sports a 12.1 megapixel camera with average performance though it has more megapixels than most smartphone cameras.

Overall, the Xperia Acro S is a high-end smartphone that can compare with the likes of smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and a notch above the Xperia S due to its waterproof capabilities, thus making it an excellent choice for consumers.
