Sony Xperia T3 review

 

The price isn't right on the Xperia T

Good contrast and colour ; Attractive UI ; Slim body

Poor value for money ; Disappointing resolution ; Limited storage

There are some attractive features, such as the UI, on the Xperia T3 but the price just isn't right when compared to this year's mid range competition, and last years now reasonably priced flagships.

Sony Xperia T3 review

 

Sony's official price for the Xperia T3 is £299 placing it at exactly the same cost as the Nexus 5. However, you can pick it up cheaper, around £245, at retailers such as MobiCity, so you can save money in comparison.

The Xperia T3 is a good but not great smartphone which will only really suit a particular customer: those wanting a large screen smartphone without spending loads of cash. It delivers this but you should consider the slightly smaller Nexus 5 for a...

Sony Xperia T3

 

A large 5.3-inch phone at a tempting price

Slim, well-designed body, Decent 720p HD display, Good battery life and power saving options

Cheaper alternatives offer better specs, Slightly sluggish for gaming, No standout quality or feature

Decent phone with a large display and super slim chassis, but it lacks something special

Sony Xperia T3 review

 

With its glass and aluminium design, Sony's flagship Xperia Z2 is among the most visually striking phones around, and it would be very much at home in a first class business lounge or a fancy cocktail bar. It's packed full of the best tech around...

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 review

 

A perfectly competent mid-range smartphone, but middling performance sees it overshadowed by cheaper rivals

The Sony Xperia T3 is a promising mid-range smartphone in many regards; the screen, battery life, design and build are all alluringly competitive. However, the T3’s underwhelming performance is, for us, a real dealbreaker. We’d recommend either the...
