Sony Xperia T review: a new 4.6-inch smartphone flagship that isn’t quite new enough

Sony Xperia T review The new smartphone flagship that isn't quite new enough

Sony’s Xperia T goes by a few names. Depending on which country you’re in, you might pick it up as the Xperia GX, or possibly even theTX. The final review sample that’s been passed our desk, however, is the Xperia T, the European HSPA version, headed to O2’s UK stores in the coming weeks, at which point it will be free on £36 per-month contracts and likely replace the Xperia S as Sony’s Android flagship. In comparison to Sony’s Spring smartphone, there’s a similar 720p display, now stretched out to 4.6 inches, a different 13-megapixel camera, a new 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and Android ICS — with the promise of Jelly Bean soon after it hits store. The Xperia T also revives a familiar hardware curve and has picked up onscreen Android buttons on its design journey. Design twists and promises of the latest OS aside, has Sony finally built a top-tier phone capable of going toe-to-toe with the smartphone heavyweights? Have a look after the break.
