Top 22 Reasons for the
Sony Xperia T
Compared to Samsung Galaxy S2
More battery power
12.12% more battery power
Vastly higher pixel density
48.17% higher pixel density
Sizably higher resolution
2.40x higher resolution
Substantially more megapixels (photo)
1.63x more megapixels (photo)
A bit bigger screen size
5.81% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Every pixel has three subpixels
The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
Has stereo speakers
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound that surrounds the user from left and right side, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
Vastly faster downloads
2.01x faster downloads
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Has a BSI sensor
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
Substantially smaller semiconductor size
17 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
Notably lower SAR for body (USA)
0.08 W/kg lower SAR for body (USA). SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at hip level. The legal limit is 1.6 W/kg in the USA.
Has a CMOS sensor
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
Has a video light
A video light helps when recording a movie in low-light situation like a party.
Has manual ISO
This allows to manually set the ISO level.
Has manual white balance
With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.
PlayStation Mobile Certified
