Sony Xperia T3 review: Wits and looks

 

Sony's Xperia T lineup has been growing out of 007's tux and the third generation is putting on a t-shirt. OK, an oversized t-shirt, although the T3 has lost some weight, and screen real-estate, compared to the T2. Gone is the Ultra moniker and the...

Impressively thin at 7mm ; 5.3" 720p IPS capacitive touchscreen Triluminos display (277ppi), X-Reality engine, ambient light sensor ; LTE connectivity ; Android 4.4.2 KitKat ; Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 processor,...

Non user-replaceable battery ; No water or dust proofing

Sony XPERIA T3 ( white)

 

This 5.3-inch Android KitKat phone has a sleek black and silver design that looks and feels good, it has an 8-megapixel camera that takes shots more than good enough for social network use and its vast display, while not high resolution does at least...

The Xperia T3 looks good, has a massive screen to show off your video and the camera isn't at all bad either.

The display has a disappointingly low resolution, the processor is the same that you'll find in the considerably cheaper Motorola Moto G and the battery life is far from impressive.

The Xperia T3 may not have the high-end specs of its top end brother, the Xperia Z2, but its big screen and good looks make it a fair choice for those of you looking for an attractive phone with a display large enough to enjoy movies on the go.

Sony Xperia T3 has good looks, a big screen and a solid camera

 

The Sony Xperia T3 doesn't have an impressive lineup of specs, but its big screen and good looks help to make up for it.

Sony Xperia T3 Smartphone Review

 

Stylish device with rough edges. Sony's Xperia T3 was launched in Germany under the name Sony Xperia T3 Style. It fuses a 5.3-inch screen with the known, appealing design and a swift chipset in a mid-range model. Some minor shortcomings prevent it from...

Very bright screen, Good gaming performance, Swift internal storage, Quality casing, Micro-SD memory card slot, Wireless module supports LTE, Android 4.4 KitKat, Dedicated camera button

High battery consumption, No dust or water protection, Only middling camera, Non-removable battery

There are several points that make Sony's Xperia T3 Style appealing. Firstly, we very much liked the screen with its exemplary brightness. Then, the smartphone scored with its build, including the metal bezel. The operating speed and gaming performance...

Sony Xperia T3 Review

 

The new lower midrange Sony Xperia T3 includes a 5.3”, 720 x 1280 pixels resolution IPS display and an 8-megapixel camera with Sony's Exmor RS sensor. It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, has 8 GB of...

Excellent battery life ; Very slim, comfortable to hold design ; Decent picture and video quality

The display is hard to tell outdoors ; Hissy earpiece

Sony has made a well-rounded midranger that shines in terms of design, and performs adequately in most departments. Granted, its screen seems a bit too reflective outdoors, and the earpiece is not up to snuff, but the Xperia T3 offers an ultrathin...

Sony Xperia T3 review: A solid mid-range large-screen phone

 

Sony's 5.3-inch Xperia T3 is a distinctive-looking and well-built large-screen smartphone with no serious failings, although both the screen resolution and internal storage are on the low side.

Distinctive slimline design ; Solid build quality ; Large 5.3-inch screen ; Plenty of bundled apps

Moderate screen resolution ; Large bezels above and below the screen ; Only 8GB of internal storage

Sony's Xperia T3 is a distinctive-looking and well-built large-screen smartphone with no serious failings. But it isn't great value at £299 (inc. VAT, or £249.17 ex. VAT). If you like Sony's style and want a really large screen, then the even bigger...

Sony Xperia T3

 

The Xperia T3 is Sony's answer to the booming mid-range smartphone market. While it doesn't share the high end specs of the Xperia Z2 flagship, it is incredibly thin at 0.3 inches and weighs a scant 148 grams. While slim, it unfortunately veers into...

Incredibly thin and light, Fairly sharp screen with good color reproduction, Long battery life

Slow performance when using more intensive apps, Poor viewing angles on screen, A bit too tall for easy one-handed use

Sony Xperia T3: Decent smartphone with a few issues [Review]

 

The Sony Xperia T3 updates the Xperia T2 which, er, was an update to the Xperia T. Except that's not quite how it is. When the T came out early last year it was the flagship phone for Sony. It even had a much talked about spot in a James Bond movie....

Sony's handsets always seem to be a bit chalk and cheese. If you are a fan of the whole Sony ecosystem then the range of apps dedicated to the company's wares will have clear appeal. For those not so loyal, there are still goodies to be had, but the...

Sony Xperia T3 Smartphone Review

 

The Sony Xperia T3 is an excellent mid-range smartphone if you want a big (but not too big) screen. Its main problem is that its price is closer to high-end smartphones (which the Xperia T3 is not; it should have at least a better camera and a full-HD...
