Reviews for the Sony Xperia T3

83% Sony Xperia T3 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Stylish device with rough edges. Sony's Xperia T3 was launched in Germany under the name Sony Xperia T3 Style. It fuses a 5.3-inch screen with the known, appealing design and a swift chipset in a mid-range model. Some minor shortcomings prevent it from standing out decisively from the competition.
Sony Xperia T3 video review: budget smartphone has a specific customer in mind - is it you?
Source: PC Advisor English
The Xperia T3 is a good but not great smartphone, which will suit only a particular customer: one who wants a large-screen smartphone without spending loads of cash. The Sony delivers on this front, but you should consider the slightly smaller, slightly more expensive Nexus 5 for better performance. Alternatively, Sony's own Xperia Z Ultra is a nicer smartphone and costs about the same money, as long as you can handle its 6.4in screen.

70% The price isn't right on the Xperia T
Source: Techradar English
Aside from being quite big, the Sony Xperia T3 is very easy to get on with. Aside from a few cut-down and missing features there are no deal-breaking issues. However, it is too expensive when you compare it to other phones at the price. Unless you're desperate for a big screen Sony handset and don't have the budget to get the Xperia Z Ultra, you're probably best off looking elsewhere.

80% Sony Xperia T3 review
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Sony Xperia T3 is a decent smartphone, but if you simply want a phone with a large screen, we think the marginally more expensive 6.3in HTC Desire 816 is a better buy. Likewise, there are other similarly priced phones out there, such as the Motorola Moto X, that outclass the Xperia T3 in almost every way, making the Xperia T3 feel a little average by comparison. Still, if you're after something that's thin and the same size as a high-end smartphone, the Xperia T3 could be for you.

70% Sony Xperia T3 review

The Sony Xperia T3 is a good-looking, mid -ange phone that won't blow you away in any one department. It’s a similar story to the HTC Desire 816. Both hide their hulking bodies well and have similar deficiencies in the screen and camera departments. The Sony Xperia T3 is a slim, stylish big phone that won't disappoint you, but no single part of it really stands out.

70% Sony Xperia T3 review: Budget phablet can't compete with Nexus 5 or Xperia Z Ultra
Source: PC Advisor English
The Xperia T3 is a good but not great smartphone which will only really suit a particular customer: those wanting a large screen smartphone without spending loads of cash. It delivers this but you should consider the slightly smaller Nexus 5 for a little more money to gain better specs or even Sony's own Xperia Z Ultra if 6.4in doesn't sound too big.

60% Sony Xperia T3 Review: Battery Life Saves the Day
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
One area where Sony fails miserably is with the pricing of the Xperia T3. At Rs. 27,990, even the limited period offer of a bundled SmartBand and premium case is not enticing enough. The two things going for the Sony Xperia T3 are its great battery life and decent camera performance, but nothing else about this phone's price-to-performance ratio works out.

Sony Xperia T3 review: Wits and looks
Source: GSM Arena English
Sony Xperia T3 isn't the regular mid-ranger we've expected it to be. It comes with an excellent build quality and an extra slim profile, it's as snappy as you may expect and it's got some great imaging capabilities. We really like the displays Sony is putting on its latest Xperia phones and the Xperia T3's 5.3" IPS unit is great, too. The smartphone would have been the perfect mid-ranger if it was water and dust proof, but we can't have it all, can we?
