The Sony Xperia S, which is the flagship handset of the manufacturer’s Android smartphone range has recently been replaced by the Xperia T as the high-end offering of the series.
The Sony Xperia T has an impressive spec list including a BRAVIA powered 4.55 inch screen for outstanding video performance, Android operating system (with an update to the latest Jellybean version on the way), and a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. One feature which really stands out though is its camera which boasts a massive resolution of 13 megapixels.
The Sony Xperia T looks set to become popular in the near future, as it is the mobile phone of choice for 007 and the latest James bond film called Skyfall.
With such an advanced camera, the guys at Android Central have carried out a full review and test of this feature and it appears that the results are every bit as good as you would expect.
The first test is carried out to determine the performance of the camera when taking still images. Multiple pictures are taken in a number of different lighting conditions, some requiring the use of the handset’s LED flash. All photos look superb, and have the levels of lighting, colour saturation, detail and clarity that you would expect from a camera with such a high pixel resolution.
Likewise, the camera’s ability to capture video footage was equally impressive. It is able to capture video in a number of different resolution settings of up to 1080p as you would expect from a high end cameraphone. The review also pointed out how impressive the video stabilisation feature is on the camera with its ability to focus on even the smallest of moving objects ensuring the optimum zoom levels are achieved at all times. The handset’s video capture capabilities were even rated higher than those of the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, which is quite an achievement.
Although it has some big shoes to fill from the Xperia S, certainly looks up to the task, in terms of its camera at least.
