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.

Sony Xperia T review


Sharp, detailed screen ; Great video and camera ; Good sound ; Extra Sony content ; Fast

Uninspiring build ; Puzzling design quirks ; Lacks wow factor

A strong all-rounder that makes sense for music and movie lovers

Sony Xperia T review


A powerful smartphone with lots to like, but at current prices it can't quite go head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy S3

Sony has used on-screen buttons rather than physical ones, meaning the 4.6in LCD display takes up the entire front face of the phone. It’s a beauty, thanks to the 1,280x720 resolution and Sony’s own Bravia mobile engine display tweaks which improve...

Sony Xperia T Review


Sony has produced yet another great media superphone in the shape of the Xperia T. It has an impressive snapper, captures HD video, and Sony has added its own neat touches to Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

Fantastic snapper; great HD screen; good build quality; brilliant HD display, solid build, easy-to-use interface

Unimpressive design, well-executed but unexciting features

Sony continues to produce fine handsets that do all the right things. The Xperia T is a well-built handset, with a slick user interface and some great styling and features. It may have a retro feel to its design, but it has a fabulous screen, great...

Sony Xperia T review


Sony's latest flagship handset struggled to excite us despite its great camera and gorgeous screen

Vibrant screen, excellent camera

Average battery life, software can be complicated

Sony claims the 1,850mAh battery on the Xperia T will last for around seven hours of talk time, and that seems about right. While the handset will last through a day of average to heavy usage, we did find that we had to charge the handset every night,...

Sony Xperia T review


We've examined the Sony Xperia T and you can now read our thoughts on the curvy-backed Bond phone.

Excellent HD Bravia display, Fast processor, Premium build, Slick design, Good camera, MicroSD slot, Good battery life, Android Ice Cream Sandwich

Sony UI not to everyone's tastes, Some performance issues with Sony UI widgets, Low onboard storage for premium model

An excellent media smartphone with a fantastic screen, along with decent power, camera and battery life. Let down by interface performance issues and low onboard memory
