Cheap, Premium & Satisfaction
najib1312 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
This phone came more than a year ago. I admit it's a bit old already. But guess what it's price now in Malaysia? I bought it for US$290. Even Nexus 4 can't beat this price. The same aged S3 & One X still retails for US$380 in here.
Talking about the phone, Man where do I start? The white version is Stunning! No lags after jelly bean updatw, awesome still camera, fulfilling gaming performance, more than enough internal storage, HD screen, feels amazing in your hands etc.
The downside? Battery!! 1850 mAH non-removable for a 4.6" HD smartphone sounds lame. The similar spec'd Xperia SP offers 2370mAH. Nevertheless, I can get 1 full day and sometimes more using the stamina mode but overnight charges are mandatory.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 9/10Battery 7/10
- Stunning looks (for white version)
- Very Affordable. Cheaper than Nexus 4.
- Expandable 16GB memory
- HD screen
- High Quality Accessories & Ear phones
- Android 4.3 & 4.4 Supported

rubbish video focus and small photo files
david6cc has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
i bought this phone to use primarily as a convenient camera and video device.
my previous phone was the sony xperia arc s and that took better pictures, no contest.
the xperia t has real trouble with focusing on video capture mode. truly awful. a complete waste of time and money if making short memory clips of daily life or loved one is your thing.
however i recently discovered an app called lgCamera on play store and there is no video focusing problem any more. how on earth can a third party app make sonys video focusing system work when sony cant do it themselves?
another problem with the camera element of the phone is that when you take a 13mp picture, sonys software downsizes it to a 1.3mp jpeg. what the heck is the point of having 13mp if the pics are reduced to postage stamps?Build quality 6/10Reception 5/10Call quality 4/10Internet 4/10Multimedia 5/10Camera 3/10UI speed 4/10Everyday usage 5/10Text input 4/10Display 5/10Battery 4/10
- biggish screen
- mini usb charger port
- mini sd card expansion
- useless autofocus on video
- small photo files
- clunky ui
- menus too deep
- useless led flash
- poor battery
- slippery finish

Ok so I've read the reviews and either the people that reviewed the phone have almost no expectations or its their first smart phone.
Sensitive to heat: Phone becomes unresponsive when in 34C sunlight.
Walkman app: There seems to be a pause (3 - 60 seconds in length) between certain songs.
Camera: The only reputable feature on the phone is it's CAMERA, NOT the Video camera. Videos jump just as much as a Huawei P6.Excellent daytime photos
Build quality is questionable: shiny trim around 3.5 and camera lens falls of when glue gets warm by say your hand. Phone will survive a few falls though. Phone feels good in hand though.
Phone gets Boiling Hot when you watch a movie at full brightness or play a game for half an hour or so.
Under powered for its release date, Great PPI, Great Daytime photos. Don't get a Sony for its Walkman app.Build quality 5/10Reception 3/10Call quality 8/10Internet 5/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 3/10UI speed 4/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 3/10Display 10/10Battery 5/10

Wow! This phone is a beast. Physical camera button AND micro sd card slot? These features are becoming more an more hard to find on smart phones nowadays. This phone just has everything I could ask for in an Android smart phone. Great bang for buck.

The most under rated phone on the market.
sy2pie has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The phone on paper doesnt jump out like its rivals such as the S3, but if you actually read in to what makes a great phone then this is easily the phone of the year in my opinion.
The phone design is very sexy. It reminds me of the old Xperia Arc but just a bit fatter. It disributes its weight really well over your hand for good balance. Its got a matt/rubber casing which adds to grip too. Id say its the sexiest phone on the makret yet at the same time has a practicality to its deisng so its not shallow.
Also you will be glad to know that it doesnt have an AMOLED screen. Unlike with the Samsung S3 which has very saturated and unnatural colours, as well as a common problem with screen burn. Sony have gone for using some of their products from their TV department and stuck in the Bravia Engine in their screen. Its subtle rather than flashy and smooths over photos and videos to make the experience a little more polished without trying to blow your brains out. It works great for grainy Youtube videos.
I would have liked to have seen Whitemagic in this phone but sadly it has been missed out. I had White Magic with my Xperia P and it was absolutely sensational!
The camera is incredible. Not only do you have the choice to go all the way up to 13 megapixels if you need it, but they have put in the Exmor R sensor which handles the extra noise very well. Its also supposed to be good for low light level photos but to be honest I notice little difference here.
Sony are famous for having...Build quality 9/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 8/10Display 9/10Battery 7/10
- Doesnt have AMOLED screens
- Best Android Camera
- Sexy yet practical design
- Fantastic Sony software
- Its new S4 processor beating quadcore procesors in benchmark tests
- Bravia Screen
- Turns your TV into a smart TV
- Very good value for money
- Average battery
- Camera can take a while to focus
- Released too late.
- No Whitemagic
