Sony Xperia T3 Overview
The Sony Xperia T3 is ideal for those looking for the Sony experience but also looking to keep costs down. With a big, crisp and clear 5.3 inch screen the T3 offers media lovers a perfect window for Netflix, YouTube and gaming. The T3 also boasts TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile, this allows you to see subtle differences in red, green and blue whilst Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 auto-enhances the contrast in videos and pictures.
Power comes from a Quad-core 1.4GHz Cortex A7 chip and with 1GB of RAM multi-tasking and getting about the device will be a smooth affair. The on board 8GB of storage can be expended with a 32GB microSD card, this comes in handy for keeping pictures, videos and other media on but goes some way to keeping the on board storage free for apps that you’ll be downloading. Sony have also teamed up with box to give you 50GB of free storage for life.
Keeping everything ticking over is a 2500mAh battery. Sony advise that this will see you get 63 hours of music listening time, Up to 14 h 47 min talk time and up to 688 hours standby time. This as always depends on what you’re doing with the Sony Xperia T3. To help you try and get the most out of the T3 Sony have though included stamina, low-battery and location-based Wi-Fi. These settings will help disable apps and background data to help push more out of the battery before you need to plug it into a power supply.
Load up your social media accounts and pretty much every picture has been taken with a mobile device. With the Sony Xperia T3 you get a rear facing 8 megapixel camera with a host of features including Object tracking, HD video recording, Geotagging, Sony Exmor RS for mobile image sensor and a pulsed LED flash to name but a few. These and more coupled with the wealth of photo editing apps available on Google Play will see your pictures stand out. To the front Sony have equipped the Xperia T3 with a 1.1 megapixel camera, that is all you need for the odd video call over Skype or Hangouts or to capture a selfie.
Both the microSD card and microSim slots can be found to the side of the Sony Xperia T3 as can the exposed microUSB charging port, that means there is no waterproofing so don't go taking it for a swim. The unmistakable power button also sits to the righ side of the phone placed in the middle for easy access.
With Google Play and a host of apps that come bundled from Sony the T3 whilst not offering the top end features of the Z3 is still a media lovers device that will help you capture those golden moments you’ll want to treasue. With the T3 comes the ability to connect with other Sony products including the Sony Talkband, Smartwatch 3, a host of officila Sony headsets and the Lifelog app helping you to keep in shape.
One of the great seeling points for any Sony device is they keep their own extras down to a minimum. This means you won't get bogged down with stuff that you don't want and more space for the things you do.
