Sony Xperia TL (AT&T)


The Xperia TL for AT&T brings Sony up to speed with a fast, reasonably priced smartphone that will please average users and James Bond aficionados alike.

Fast performance. Good camera. Nice display.

Bloatware. A little heavy.

Sony Xperia TL (AT&T)


What does it take to be 007's go-to phone? Some would say fast reflexes, coupled with brains and endurance -- things that the Sony Xperia TL has in spades. The $99 device comes with a powerful Snapdragon processor and 4G LTE speeds. There's also a...

Sony Xperia T Android Smartphone Review


It is no secret that Sony are not the all-conquering giant that they once were. The consumer electronics market has changed significantly over the past decade and it is taking time for Sony to adapt. One of the more recent changes was to move away from...

Starting with the build quality of the Xperia T we have another device from Sony which feels very good in the hand. The curved back sits well in our hand and the handset weight is spread well which makes one handed operation easy. As always it is good...

Sony Xperia T Android phone (preview)


A 12-megapixel camera and a large 4.6in screen are the two key features of Sony's Xperia T.

4.6in screen ; 13-megapixel camera ; NFC connectivity

Sony Xperia T


The Sony Xperia T is looking to turn heads. Running with the tagline "the ultimate HD experience", Sony wants to muscle in on the big boys of the Android world. There's a lot that the Sony Xperia T does right. The display is impressive and once you get...

Display mostly great, powerful enough, affordable, microSD card slot, some nice tweaks from Sony

The design is a bit on the chunky side, positioning of buttons is irritating, battery isn't great, UI could be tidier

There's a lot that the Sony Xperia T does right. The display is impressive and once you get used to bumping the brightness back and forth, you'll appreciate the sharp details it produces and the nice balance of colours.

Sony Xperia T pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint


Sony has finally unveiled a phone to replace the Xperia S as a flagship product. The Xperia T packs quite a punch, although isn't exactly powerful compared

Sony Xperia T review


New top-end phone enters the fray at Sony

Quick capture on camera ; Great screen ; PlayStation Certified ; MicroSD ; James Bond has one

Only 16GB internal storage ; No Android Jelly Bean ; Mediocre battery performance ; Similar to earlier model

Since throwing off the shackles of the Ericcsson partnership, Sony has forged ahead with its Xperia brand – producing some good looking handsets equipped with enough features to rival the best smartphones.
