Sony Xperia T and Sony Xperia TX get Android 4.0.4 update with added features
four times by shutting down non-essential apps, Wi-Fi and data traffic. This happens after the phone has been in sleep mode for a while. Calls messaging and notifications will still work. Once you touch the screen to bring it back to life, total functionality is restored.
Sony's media apps are also improved with the update. The Movies app now allows you to control the "show" from the dashboard with a small viewing window. The interface on the WALKMAN app has a new user interface which changes colors to match the album art. The Album app, similar to a photo gallery, now uses a Bravia engine to improve the contrast, sharpness and depth in photos and videos.
According to Sony, the Sony Xperia T supports HD Voice which it modestly calls, "the most significant voice quality upgrade in mobile history; transmitting a broader spectrum of the human voice resulting in a more natural sound filtering out distracting background noise." Voices are easier to understand and are clearer. Which means that you will be able to hear your new orders loud and clear from "Q", right Mr. Bond?

Sony devices are pretty awesome. Wish they'd start coming toward Sprint someday.

Yes, agree. Sony have unique design language like Motorola. I like their tablet design.

yeah they're cool but hey if they were the flagships then shouldn't they have launched with 4.0.4 ICS and await an update to 4.1.1 or 4.1.2 or something....thats tacky on the software front for Sony....very late updates!

What??? still seeding 4.0.X when 4.2.X is doing the rounds?? There is a reason why sony sucks big time in sales...

Don't be a troll. Tell me which phone has 4.2.X beside Google devices. I did not hear from any of the major manufacturer.

I didn't mean that Xperia T should've gotten 4.2 you dumb... After the xperia T launch they pointed out that 4.1 would be seeded within two months but yet to update their flagship phone. Its you who is a sony-troll who refuse to face the actuality of Sony's late updates.

The 1st Amendment's downside at work. 10-year old kids using the Internet make it difficult for people who know what they're talking about.

Nice phone, bad updates. I wish my sgs3 looked like this phone.

Seriously, I think PA has now lost all credibility in my view. Why? I live in the UK and am a proud owner of the Xperia T.......IT SHIPPED WITH 4.0.4! I read this sub-par article and had to double check to be sure, just tried to update just in case I was missing something only for the Update Centre to confirm what I knew all along. My phone already HAD the latest update Android 4.0.4.
Get a grip, please Phone Arena!
