Description

Sony Xperia T is the company's newest flagship the Android ICS-powered device. Specs-wise, the Xperia T is equipped with a large 4.6” HD BRAVIA display, which will obviously take advantage of the Mobile BRAVIA engine that enhances media for your viewing pleasure. This, however, isn't where the interesting features of this display end. Sony has also employed its WhiteMagic technology here in the Xperia T. What it does is allowing you to set the brightness of the display really high, but the extra white pixel comes at the expense of natural color representation, at least in the Xperia P. The CPU residing inside the Sony Xperia T is the trusty dual-core Snapdragon S4 with Adreno 225 graphics, so you are unlikely to feel underpowered with it. NFC is thrown into the ring here, too, for sharing media, files and mobile payments. The handset carries the new 13MP camera with "stacked" Exmor RS sensor, that is especially optimized for low-light photography and high dynamic range video, and goes from sleep-to-snap in an instant.

This device is also known as Sony LT30p, Sony Xperia Mint

rubbish video focus and small photo files
Phone owned for less than 3 months

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?

Great phone!Must have it!
Phone owned for less than 3 months

This phone is beast...Everything works very good, fast and smooth.Camera is fantastic, makes very beautiful pictures, especially on daylight.Processor does its job, very fast since it is dual core 1.5ghz and Snapdragon S4 plus.Ram is 1GB and it is enough for everything.Had S2, and if you ask me, this is two times better then S2.The battery is only thing that i dont like, i mean its not that bad and its not that good.
