Design and Display

The Sony Xperia T mobile phone is a very special section design. You will see that it meets the requirements of elegance and distinction that usually have to flag some devices of the firm, but in this case it makes a more flat. The Sony Xperia T is presented as an advanced terminal , but saves a rounded shape that makes it a perfect end to carry comfortably in your pocket. Thus, the Sony Xperia U looks like a device made and intended for a younger audience , but the fact is that thanks to its neutral color might like everybody, even the most serious users. The phone complies with a 129.4 x measures 67.3 x 9.35 mm and weighs 139 grams with the battery included. We are actually pretty light to a device, since its thickness is just over nine millimeters at its thinnest. This is an added advantage for those looking for aphone easy to carry around without his extensive screen have to be a big burden.

What about on your screen?, You ask. Well, this time Sony has equipped this Sony Xperia T with a 4.55 inch TFT panel , valid for high definition, since it supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels .The screen in question also has a depth of 16 million colors and works through technology Reality Displaywith Mobile BRAVIA Engine . The latter has been introduced several times in the most advanced TVsSony signature , so that good visuals experience is virtually guaranteed. The glass also is tougher and incorporates a layer that prevents scratching. On the capacitive screen, users can use a keyboard virtual QWERTY , useful for entering messages, content writing and send instant messaging as comfortable as possible.

Finally, we should note that the Sony Xperia U is available to users in three combinations of different colors. All carry a black frame – in the front – but we’ll see up to three editions in white, gray and black . It is, as you see, quite discrete editions, designed for those who prefer to have gadgets inconspicuous in the visuals or design detail that has nothing to do with the internal performance of the device.


The Sony Xperia T networks operate on GSM 850/900/1800/1900 and HSDPA 850/1900/2100 , as stated in the device datasheet. You see, in fact, that the phone is perfectly skilled to operate through networks3G , which means network access HSDPA and HSUPA with transfer rates of 7.2 Mbps and 5.76 Mbps , respectively, implying a Internet much more agile and quick to upload content to the Internet, upload pictures to social networks or download e-mail, detail thank those users who use the phone for business purposes. But that’s not all. In point of connectivity , the Sony Xperia T network also supports Wifi 802.11 b / g / n , which will help us take advantage of all available wireless networks in our home, in the office or in public spaces where have been enabled. Those persons having more devices (a tablet, a laptop …) function can use Wifi Hotspot to connect to the phone’s 3G connection .

The Sony Xperia T keeps compatibility with Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP (useful for file transfer), with aGPS(to use navigation applications or even the browser GPS for the car) and NFC (technology Near Field Communication , content transfer short range). Like all advanced terminals also the Sony Xperia Tboasts support HDMI and certification DLNA to transfer multimedia files.

In the section of the external connections , finally, the new Sony Xperia incorporates an entrymicroUSB and USB 2.0 high speed for file transfer and synchronize content from phone to computer and vice versa. The phone also has an integrated 3.5 mm output for headphones that will be used to listen to music (either through a headset, silent, and through small speakers). Finally, it should be noted that theSony Xperia T also has a slot for microSD cards up to 32 GB that will help us bring more content with us.

Camera and multimedia

The camera section is one of the most important of the Sony Xperia U . In fact, Sony Mobile usually care much media issues. In this case, the device incorporates a camera with 13 megapixel sensor that will allow us to obtain high quality photographs. It’s nothing new. The firm Sony usually work hard in this direction, incorporating these cameras to virtually all high-end terminals. In this case, we have to indicate that the device also provides for a 16x digital zoom , with auto focus , face detection , geotagging , image stabilization, red-eye reduction and scene recognition. Of course, the phone also has LED Flashwhich will help us capture images of good quality although we are in a situation with very little light or even at night. But that’s not all.

The phone also allows sending pictures via web (through all possible mechanisms, such as instant messaging, email or social networks, for example). Finally, we must indicate that the system is complete with a photo sensor Sony Exmor R CMOS and the ability to record HD video in high definition (1080p).The front camera will be the ideal quality for video calls, since in this case it is also compatible with HD (720p) .

As mentioned earlier, the Sony Xperia U is a telephone specially prepared for media issues, something that no longer seems surprising in the case of Sony . In this case, we have to indicate that the phone is perfectly suited to play multimedia content, both music and video and image in major formats. If anyone suggests otherwise, the phone will get along with the following extensions: MP3, eAAC +, WAV, MP4, H.263 and H.264 , which are the most basic to the case. Additionally, Sony Mobile is willing to provide the broadest experience when playing content, whether it is in the holder. So, we have to mention the following features contained in our Sony Xperia T : Album Art , Bluetooth stereo with A2DP (for music in the car, for example), the PlayNow service , the player Music Player , music recognition feature TrackIDand experience xLOUD , to better hear any audio content.

The phone also has the function of FM radio with RDS and includes the ability to run 3D games . In addition, the Sony Xperia T also provides access to the service Sony Entertainment Network , a platform for multimedia content download and purchase. Finally, users can also connect to YouTube to watch videos in streaming connected to Internet .

Memory, processor and operating system

The Sony Xperia T has up to 16 GB of internal memory , enough space to store a large number of content and applications. However, if a user does not have enough, we will have the opportunity to expand the extension available through cards microSD memory . As you can imagine, the phone has up to 1 GB of RAM , which will mean better performance by the processor in the device. In this case, Sony wanted to bet on a Qualcomm Krait MSM8260 dual core , running at a clock frequency of 1.5 GHz .

The phone works with the operating system Android and makes it through version  4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich , one of the last to be released to the mass market. It is possible, however, that in the coming weeks, users of this phone can receive the upgrade to a more recent edition,  Android 4.1 Jelly Bean .As users of Android , also owners of the Sony Xperia U will have direct access to all Google services.We refer to Google Voice Search, Google Talk with video chat, Google Mail, Google Maps with Street View and Latitude . On the other hand, can also access Google Play , the app store Google , filled with content and software (both free and paid) to download directly to your phone.

About autonomy, we must indicate that the Sony Xperia U is presented to large market equipped with alithium-ion battery with a capacity of 1850 milliamps . As indicated by the company itself in the data sheet, the piece will offer availability to approximately 450 hours standby and 7 hours talk time . Finally, if you are interested in multimedia playback, know that the device offers up to 16 hours of music and 5 hours of video , although these data have to check them yourself through the normal experience. As you may know, the autonomy of the device will depend in large part on many external factors such as the type of network connectivity or activation of each and every one of the functions (GPS, Bluetooth, Wifi) .

Upon availability , still no exact information about it, since Sony Mobile has not expressed his intentions exact marketing in all countries. We know, however, that the intention of Sony is to sell the Sony Xperia T in Spain and offer it to the public as an interesting alternative to the big smartphones that are now in vogue and can be submitted by the end of the year . We look to update any information on the coming-of apparatus anunciártela minute.
