Previously known as the Sony Hayabusa, the manufacturers new flagship model, aka the LT29i, will now and forever be referred to as the Sony Xperia TX; this is not to be confused with the Sony Xperia T which had been known as the Sony Mint...

1700mAh? I guess it's up to Sony. They should know what their devices are capable of, but I hope it's not too small for a phone with those specs.

The S4 chip is much more battery efficient than possibly any other SoC out there. American/Australian One X uses the S4 chip with a 1800 MAH battery which is not a big difference but lasts around a day or more even though HTC's skin is much heavier than Sony's.

they probably sacrificed the battery size for the sack of the design (which everyone was asking for arc-like phone with updated specs). so don't expect to get lots of battery in slim phone. I know moto did, but you can't compare the specs of this phone with droid maxx, there is no comparision. but still, I would give it extra few millimetres for bigger battery

well if they would of put the S4 chip in the one x instead of the tegra 3 it the battery would of been better but hey.....

These are all numbers to be honest, it all depends on how you optimize the phone. I have a PSP-1000 with a 1800 MAH battery and a PSP-3000 with a 1320 MAH battery. The 3000 lasts longer due to optimizations by Sony. Same thing goes for phones and laptops; my Sony Tablet S lasts longer than my first iPad even though it's a dual core tablet.

Also don't forget that the One S has a smaller OLED screen and it's not HD. If you go to battery usage on most Android phones you would find that the screen consumes the most battery.

true, very true........but if they knew the One X was gonna have a big screen and would drain the battery fast, then why didnt they just make the battery bigger! xD

My One X lasts a day and a half which is about the same as most top line phone bar those with beefed up batteries like the Razr Max! All depends on optimisation!

Sure is but I will probably still go for the GX/TX or whatever Sony chooses to name it. I am primarily a Sony man with a soft spot for HTC as I believe they both provide the best build quality and feel in terms of their phones. Given my S3 crack experience which PA featured, I know I am never buying a Samsung product EVER again. It is the appalling customer care that makes Samsung a "no go" company for me!

Look at the pictures we can see that GX and TX are 2 different phones.

No, the MSM8960 doesn't have the Adreno 320. The 8960T does, this is using the same processor as the US version of the One X and GS3

Hey PA, wrong pictures (of Neo L or something similar). TX/Hayabusa is the international version of GX which has an Arc-ish design.

The battery is a bit small, they should've gone with >1900mAh. Sony's flaships are kind of lacking compared to other manufacturer's high-end offerings. Lately, everyone has been going with an S4 chip, 1 Gb of RAM, and an HD display for a flagship, it's getting a tad boring. At least Samsung stepped it up a bit with 2 Gb of RAM in the US GS3, effectively making it future-proof. I hope Motorola doesn't skimp out on consumers by following the pack with the Razr HD.

So, out of curiosity, what is the difference between the Xperia TX and the Xperia T? The specs look pretty much the same to me from a quick glance comparison.

The TX has a bigger display... That's about it.

this is total BULL SH*T. my brother has an XperiaS and if Sony does not keep 'a standard' with the light bar--a consistent, distinguishable design element, then hey will continue to have unprofitable quarters [after quarters].

Also, pick a f*cking name. Not an XperiaABCDEFG-i900. That confuses consumers. (Hence why instead of an iPad3 they went back to iPad. Period.)

Companies use these numeric model numbers more for internal use. Android caters to the more tech savy consumers, whereas apple likes to keep things simple because their customers are...well...simple. Apple claims that the majority of consumers are stupid, unobservent bloks who can't put a proper dollar value on the products they buy (over $600 for 2 pieces of glass for example). As for apple's naming strategy for the upcoming new iphone, they might be better off just calling it 'the new iphone' because their customers probably can't count past the number 2...or is it the number 4?

Appreciate the intelligent response. I just feel that my Nexus is easy to say, search, remember, share, etc. My brother's Xperia could be an S, P, XL, ST, whatever. It's tough for non-tech-savvy consumers to 'get into the [tech] game' when they have to do research to distinguish between models.
Sometimes simplification can be smarter than complication.
And..... the light bar should be THE distinguishing factor for ALL Sony models. If you can see that light bar from 30 feet away, you've made a coveted, consistent design element that sets you apart.

It's up to the consumer to change it once they get it home.
