What do you get if you take the design flagship smartphone, the processor and the camera easier to install there, remove the water resistance, reduce the display resolution in half, but leave all the pros and KitKat own skin, and even sell for half the price the flagship? Very interesting device with index Sony Xperia T3, which should tell us more.
The smartphone comes in a wide white-gray box with a list of colors (black, white, purple) and proprietary technologies.
Included – Battery Charger with USB-cable, earphones, quick start guide, warranty card.
Sony Xperia T3 has dimensions 150,7x77x7 mm and weighs 148 grams. In Russia, went on sale only model with an index D5103, but there are also D5106 (other frequencies 3G (850/1700/1900/2100) and LTE (4, 7, 17)) and D5102 (no support for LTE, speed HSPA – 21Mbps / s compared to 42 in the other, the processor Qualcomm MSM8228).
Housing smartphone is made of durable plastic on the ends – stainless steel inserts, visually reducing the already small thickness of the shell (7 mm). In addition, the shiny metal strips make the smartphone more elegant in appearance. And strength is added, of course.
The front surface is completely covered with glass, the width of the side frames – 4 mm. Above the screen are the earpiece, light sensors and proximity, the inscription Sony, the front camera lens. Below the display there is nothing: the "Back", "Home" and "Recent Apps" are displayed directly on the screen.
On the left side there is an open slot micro-USB, on the right – the power button, volume control, camera (well done that back) and slots for SIM-card and microSD, covered a total cap.
Engineers desired to make them as similar to each other, so be guided by the inscription on the microSD plug and attempt to insert into the slots two SIM-cards and two memory cards. In slots are also non-removable leaves showing where which card should be – just pull the one to the second, there appeared. However, the designation of micro-SIM slot on the plug would be much more useful.
At the top there is a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom – a microphone and eyelet (a good thing for smart phones, which are not placed in any pocket).
On the rear panel are located at the top of main camera lens and flash, under them – second microphone near – icon NFC, and at the bottom – the speaker. Access to the battery is not.
