Description

The Sony Xperia T3 has IPS-LCD Triluminos screen with 720x1280 pixels resolution. The processing power is a bit on the slow side for today's standards, as the phone gets powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, but this is the new midrange now, and it looks pretty svelte with the 150.7 x 77 x 7 mm chassis, built around a stainless steel frame. The memory situation includes 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot that takes up to 32 GB cards. There is an 8 MP Exmor RS sensor on the back for snapping and 1080p video purposes, and a 1.1 MP front-facing camera that does 720p recordings. Power is provided by a 2500 mAh battery. Naturally, Android 4.4 KitKat with Sony's own Xperia UI are loaded on the handset, too.
