Samsung and Apple are the leaders of the Smartphone market and they have grabbed every opportunity they have got. In this intense war several Smartphone makers are left behind but they are slowly catching up with them, on of them is Sony who has launched a series several high-end Smartphone’s in the market which are quite good to compete with Apple and Samsung. On of the latest Smartphone’s from Sony is the Sony Xperia T. This handset was shown in the IFA 2012 and it is not completely ready but it will when Sony decides to launch it in the coming months.
Sony Xperia T has got little bit of Samsung SIII design in it but it is not same as Samsung SIII. The design of this handset is completely new and looks fresh with curvy edges. The glossy feel in the earlier Xperia handset is not present in this handset and it is more rugged than its predecessor. It is one of the most rugged handset Sony has ever made. It is very light and comfortable to hold. Overall the build and design is quite good compared to other Sony Smartphone’s.
The capacitive touch screen of this handset supports 16M colors. The size of the display is 4.55 inches with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and 323 ppi pixels density. 4 fingers can be used for multi-touch purpose. This handset is also shatter proof and is protected with scratch-resistant glass. Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine improves the display drastically and it also uses Timescape UI. The interface is very responsive and pinching and zooming features is fast.
Sony Xperia T uses latest Android operating system Ice Cream Sandwich v.4.0.4. Ice Cream Sandwich OS has received rave reviews from all the critics as well from users. On the back panel there is 13MP camera which is very good and supports 4128×3096 pixels with face detection, image stabilization, touch focus, geo-tagging, autofocus and LED Flash feature. The output of the primary camera is clear, vibrant, colorful and full of details. Using the primary camera, amazing 1080p videos at 30 fps can be captured with the help of video stabilizer, continuous autofocus and video light. The secondary camera is of 1.3Mp and is able to capture 720p videos at 30fps. For connectivity GPRS, EDGE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v3.1 A2DP, NFC and microUSB port is provided. 3G support is also available but 4G is missing from this handset which is very disappointing as many Smartphone’s under the same price ranges provide this feature.
This Smartphone uses Qualcomm Snapdragon Dual-core 1.5 GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. This phone by no mean slow and it must be admitted that the sped is up with the likes of Samsung Galaxy S III. The GP is powered with Adreno 225 which gives awesome videos while watching videos and playing high-definition games. The internal memory is around 16GB but external memory can be expanded up to 32GB with then help of microSD. 1850 mAh Li-On battery can work for one complete day.
