Most people's first reaction upon seeing the Sony Xperia T is that it's a bit chunky. And this isn't directed as a criticism. It's only slightly heavier than the Samsung Galaxy SIII, and lighter than the iPhone 4, but feels solid to hold thanks to its...

There's a great deal to like about the Sony Xperia T. Notably, the phone's sound and video performance, the quality of its screen and the speed of its response to commands. There's also Sony's joined-up ecosystem for content and products. Does it have...

Sony has just taken the wraps of its latest flagship Android phone, the Xperia T. It includes a 13-megapixel camera, a large 4.6in screen and NFC connectivity as its key features. The Xperia T also appears to head in a different design direction to many...

The Sony Xperia T has a very nice screen and delivers good quality video. I’m not that big a fan of the build (and nor, I suspect, would our fictional Mr Bond be), and while I like the Small Apps concept, overall Sony’s plentiful app extras make...

The Sony Xperia T is the current flagship handset in the Xperia range, fully loaded with an incredible 4.55” HD screen making it perfect for showing off all your favourite snaps and home videos. I would recommend this device to anyone who loves to...

The Xperia T may have been released a few months before we got our hands on one to review but when I got the chance to I simply couldn't resist because since its release I've wanted to play with it, and not only because it is the coveted 'Bond phone'...

S ome might find the design boring, but I am personally quite charmed by the minimalist design of the Sony Xperia T. Sony’s new top model combines the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system with its own TimeScape user interface, which makes...

The Sony Xperia T has been out fo r while, and now the similarly priced Xperia V has been added to the line-up. When you first look at them you wouldn't be faulted for thinking they're about the same phone. Closer examination reveals that there are...

All in all, beyond the slightly larger screen the Xperia T doesn't offer much that you can't already get with an Xperia S. The design is more traditional and the camera function just as mediocre. At the end of the day this is a perfectly fine smartphone...

The first thing that struck me about the Xperia T is its unique shape. The slight curve in its design is imperceptible when viewing the phone face on but distinctive when you catch a side-on glance. Combined with the matte black finish (something that...

The Xperia T is the latest Android smartphone from Sony and the company has been marketing the new phone heavily as ‘the Bond phone' due to its appearance in Skyfall, the latest 007 film. It's not garishly designed. It's understated with a black...

The Xperia T is a gorgeously designed phone that performs well even with “just” a dual-core processor. It has a gorgeous display, loud loudspeakers, a solid build, and a nice soft touch backpanel. Unfortunately and based on my experience, images in...

Like the rest of Sony's 2012 smartphones, the Sony Xperia T has a square aspect, if less so than its predecessors. But its sloped and smoother corners and strangely curved back, reminiscent of the Xperia Arc , make it look and feel much nicer. See:...

It has been quite a while since I last had the opportunity to check out a handset bearing the Sony name. In fact it was back when Sony was in partnership with Ericsson for the development of its handsets....

The Sony Xperia T nudges just ahead of its sister handset the Xperia S with its updated OS, slightly bigger screen and a camera that's just a teensy bit more advanced. Bond may have offed 006 in GoldenEye, but the T doesn't look like it's quite ready...

Overall, Sony's Xperia T is an attractive phone with great camera and a beautiful screen, but it lacks Jelly Bean and, in the hand, it seems not so much the 007 of the smartphone market, more a 005½. ® More Handset ReviewsLG VuA History of the...

Sony continues to produce fine handsets that do all the right things. The Xperia T is a well-built handset, with a slick user interface and some great styling and features. It may have a retro feel to its design, but it has a fabulous screen, great...

Despite its status as a global electronics giant, Sony remains on the periphery of the smartphone world, with a tiny share of the market outside its native Japan. In Europe, it’s struggled to make a dent in Samsung and Apple’s dominance. In the U.S.,...

Sony is clearly keen to make its mark on the burgeoning Android sector, and the Xperia T continues the good work done by the Xperia S. However, it rarely feels like a step up from its predecessor; the improvements here are slight, and in some cases –...

Starting with the build quality of the Xperia T we have another device from Sony which feels very good in the hand. The curved back sits well in our hand and the handset weight is spread well which makes one handed operation easy. As always it is good to...
