Sony Xperia T: a James Bond review

Review by Damian Carvill.

It’s good enough for James Bond, so does the Sony Xperia T have a licence to thrill or is it Dr. No good? With the promise of no further dodgy James Bond puns, we take a closer look.

Less than a year after releasing the Xperia S, a hugely promising but somewhat flawed smartphone, Sony Mobile launches the Xperia T, its new star handset, and this one pushes the company a step closer to the Android market leaders.

A little more than a year after announcing its split from Ericsson, Sony Mobile is gaining market share. The company recently leapfrogged HTC, Nokia and RIM, makers of BlackBerry, to move comfortably into the top three best-selling handset manufacturers. Although some way off Apple and Samsung, its latest array of handsets are making waves and product positioning in the latest James Bond film Skyfall has clearly added much needed credibility.

With a pretty powerful dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 13MP camera and 4.55-inch fully HD screen that’s scratch and shatter-proof, the Sony Xperia T is backed up with some impressive specs. While there remain a few issues that might not trouble the likes of Samsung and Apple too much, with the Xperia T, Sony Mobile is certainly moving in the right direction.
