Sony Xperia T vs Xperia V vs Xperia J: spec comparison

Sony Xperia T vs Xperia V vs Xperia J: spec comparison
IFA 2012 has just kicked off with a splash - Sony brought not one, not two, but three new phones: the flagship Sony Xperia T, a 4.6-inch monster device with 13-megapixel camera, the slightly smaller, but water-proof Xperia V, and finally the most affordable in the bunch, the 4.0-inch curvy Xperia J.

But what makes them tick and how do they compare in terms of pure specifications? The true geek would look at more than what’s on the surface, so here is a spec comparison of Sony’s three new Xperia smartphones.

I really don't like how difficult it is to differentiate the best Sony has to offer. Why does everything have to be named Xperia? It's just too confusing. A letter doesn't help the general public figure that stuff out.

I wonder when they'll run out of letters of the alphabet.

That's what I was just thinking. Maybe they'll start using 2 letters, Can't wait to get the Xperia KF :D

do you guys know what i just realized ?! once Sony removed the green orb in Xperia V they added knew features that non of the devices with green orb have ... even Xperia T ! like Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 , ClearAudio+ sound ,HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging , Superior Auto scene capture and Bluetooth™ 4.0 ! which none of device from Sony (Ericsson) have ... i really don't know why they didn't made this device to be their Flagship ?!

Wow! the T and the V are two really good options.......Sony FTW :)

Why does the Xperia TX have an S3 Processor and the Xperia T has the S4 Krait... I thought TX should have S4 since it's the international ver. of the GX hitepaper_EN_lt29i_xperia_tx.pdf

It does have an S4 processor but I guess they got confused between the Adreno versions...

and Sony does it again. Using 2-quarters-old specs in their brand new phones. Will they ever learn?

I want the T because it will be the JAMES BOND phone. but i love the V more because it have splash proof so you don't need a case for it.
