Conclusion: It was so close to being an across the board contender, but short of the final round the Sony Xperia T ran out of juice. Nothing can take away from the fact that the T is a beautifully designed amalgam of the Xperia S and Xperia arc with some soft touch thrown in for good measure. It also offers a great screen, charming user interface and a very good camera as well as a class leading multimedia experience.
Pros: Beautifully designed, Great screen, Good camera
Summary: Sony’s always left us with the impression that it’s playing catch up with its rivals in mobile, and while the Sony Xperia T is a perfectly decent device, it’s lacking the little flourishes and bleeding edge bits and bobs that really make it stand out. And in a world where the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3 exist, that’s not quite enough. If you’re a Sony fan, you’ll be right at home, but otherwise it pays to look elsewhere.
Conclusion: 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 moments on the fly because of the dedicated shutter key. There are no major gripes with the handset either – it is zippy, with expandable storage and easy to access card slots.
Pros: Fast camera with dedicated shutter key, Sturdy design with very easy card slots access, Strong and clean loudspeaker, Helpful Smart App pop-ups
Cons: Bad screen reflectance and viewing angles, Call quality should be better, Volume rocker is placed uncomfortably, LED notification light is too small
Conclusion: The Sony Xperia T has a very nice screen and delivers good quality video. I’m not that big a fan of the build (and nor, I suspect, would our fictional Mr Bond be), and while I like the Small Apps concept, overall Sony’s plentiful app extras make Android feel too busy out-of-the-box for me.
Pros: Good screen, NFC, HDMI (MHL link over micro-USB), 'Small Apps'
Summary: T he Xperia T is Sonyâ€™s top model. This smartphone, also named the Sony LT30p, is available in black, white, and silver, and is characterized by a premium design. The Sony Xperia T runs on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, in combination with the Sonyâ€™s TimeScape user interface. The Xperia smartphone uses a Qualcomm Krait Snapdragon S4 Dual Core processor with a clock rate of 1.5 GHz.
Excerpt: Smartphones are getting brainier, and slimmer. So while the new Sony Xperia T isn’t as svelte as the iPhone 5 , it beats Apple’s flagship for camera resolution, screen size and features like NFC. Taking over from the Sony Xperia S as the brand's top-of-the-range Android handset, this phone has a lot going for it, though the absence of the very latest edition of Android is noticeable.
Pros: Amazing 4.6in display, Slick styling, Great 13MP camera
Cons: Only Ice Cream Sandwich, Timescape not great, Average battery life
