The Sony Ericsson Xperia Active can take a beating, but it isn’t invincible, is it? This collection of videos suggests otherwise, as the handset designed to survive the stresses put on it by an active user is tortured in a way that makes Hostel look like a Disney flick. Nearly every implement imaginable is take to the Xperia Active before it is tossed around in a puddle and run over by a jeep. Throughout it all the phone continues to power on and work without a hitch. Impressive.
The videos not only speak to the rugged design of the Xperia Active but also to the quality level of materials available to manufacturers today. Notably, the nearly indestructible Gorilla Glass display.
