Sony Xperia T review: T-rex


Back when the driving seat was shared with Ericsson, Sony was a little short of delivering a real winner in the high-end market, the company's top-range smartphones always a notch below the Galaxy S lineup and their HTC counterparts. Now on their own,...

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with 42.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 4.55" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine; Scratch-resistant glass ; Android OS v4.0.4...

Display has sub-par viewing angles for a flagship ; Slightly thicker than main rivals ; Relatively modest battery ; JellyBean update not available at launch ; Poor loudspeaker performance ; Video recording could be better

The Sony Xperia T is by all means an impressive phone. The dual-core Krait does a great job of competing with many other flagships not only on its home turf, but in the quad-core arena as well. Add to that a display that pushes out an impressive amount...

Sony Xperia T review: a new 4.6-inch smartphone flagship that isn't quite new enough


More InfoSony Xperia T unveiledSony Xperia TX hands-onSony Xperia T appears with AT&T brandingSony's Xperia T goes by a few names.

Lovely high-res 4.6-inch screen ; Plenty of storage space, microSD expansion ; Close to the stock Android experience

Battery performance trails rival flagships ; Too many pre-installed apps

The Xperia T is a modest improvement over Sony's older phones. It has a great display, but rivals still offer better battery life and higher-quality design.

Sony Xperia ion for AT&T review: US Xperiance


Sony was the talk of town during CES 2012 back in January and the Xperia ion for AT&T was among the main reasons why. Launched alongside the Xperia S, the Sony Xperia ion took the great honor of being the company's first LTE smartphone. To make the...

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; Tri-band 3G with 21Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; Category 3 LTE network connectivity ; 4.6" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine;...

Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread out of the box doesn't cut it for a high-end device this far into 2012 ; Display has sub-par side viewing angles ; Underwhelming front touch buttons and side camera key ; Non-user replaceable battery

Let's be honest here - Sony missed a great opportunity with the Xperia ion for AT&T. Had the device hit the shelves shortly after its announcement, it would have enjoyed a flagship status and a higher price tag, along with the potential for selling in...

Sony Xperia T Review


We've been waiting with bated breath for the Sony Xperia T ever since it became clear that's the new phone of James Bond, err… that it will feature a 13MP Exmor R camera sensor from Sony. It is not just that innovative 13MP shooter that the Xperia T...

Fast camera with dedicated shutter key ; Sturdy design with very easy card slots access ; Strong and clean loudspeaker ; Helpful Smart App pop-ups

Bad screen reflectance and viewing angles ; Call quality should be better ; Volume rocker is placed uncomfortably ; LED notification light is too small

The Sony Xperia T doesn’t offer groundbreaking features compared to the other flagships out there, but it is a pretty compelling package nonetheless. The sturdy arched design will appeal to many, and the 13MP camera will let you capture those impromptu...

Sony Xperia T review


Whether you love or hate the James Bond franchise, you can't deny that the movies inject a lot of pretty gadgets. One of them is the Sony Xperia T LT30p, marketed in the U.S. as the LTE-capable variant known as the Xperia TL LT30at. In this post, we...

Despite its status as a global electronics giant, Sony remains on the periphery of the smartphone world, with a tiny share of the market outside its native Japan. In Europe, it's struggled to ...

Unfortunately, when it comes to video recording, the Xperia T suffers from a fatal flaw. The autofocus motor is incredibly noisy, loud enough to be picked up by the microphone when recording video. The problem is exacerbated in quiet footage, or if the...

The Xperia S was a good, solid handset which didn't have industry leading specifications but performed well and offered some unique design elements. Sony's follow up is the Xperia T, a device which looks to build on their experience with the S and...

While Motorola is losing money for Google, HTC can't seem to compete with Samsung and LG struggle to support their customers it seems Sony has found a focus on their Xperia brand. The Xperia S was a solid start and the Xperia T builds on this with a...
