Specs Comparison: Sony Xperia T vs HTC One X

Sony’s Xperia T and HTC’s One X are extremely effective and fully capable of making huge fan followings. The issue is to understand which one is a better choice. These two smartphones are champions in their own right, but if force comes to leave and you had to choose one, which one is truly ought to have a position in your pocket? Let’s find it out.

Ergonomics & Design:

The Xperia T measures 129.4 x 67.3 x 9.35mm, while the One X is slightly larger at 134.36 x 69.9 x 8.9mm. But while the smaller Xperia T weighs in at 139g, the One X is lighter at 130g.

We were impressed with the Xperia T’ generous 4.55-inch TFT display, but the One X appears to be following the ‘bigger is better’ trend and will ship with a larger 4.70-inch HD Super LCD screen. Both Smartphones offer a sharp 1280 x 720-pixel resolution.


HTC One X is powered by a 1.5GHz Quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 Processor. Xperia T is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8260A processor runs at 1.5Hz. Both Smartphones equipped with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and supported by a 1GB of RAM.

An upgrade to the buttery Android 4.1 is promised soon on Xperia T while One X is loaded with HTC’s latest Sense 4 UI, which is both powerful and intuitive.


Customers were handled to a respectable amount of storage area in the One X, which provides 32GB of built in storage. Those requiring more space, however, would be dissatisfied to find that the device is not can be upgraded through an expansion slot.  The Xperia T, on the other hand, comes with only 16GB of in-built memory, but can be extended by a microSD card slot up to 32GB.


Sony Xperia T has a 13 MP rear camera, which is better than the 8 MP camera of HTC One X. We’re also looking at 1.3MP front-facing camera for both devices with the ability to record video in full HD 1080p quality.


On the connectivity front, both phones have Wi-Fi, USB and micro USB, HDMI output via adapters, and NFC. Xperia T has Bluetooth 3.1 while One X is equipped with Bluetooth 4.0.

Battery Life:

Battery has not always been HTC’s most powerful fit, the One X privileges that. The 1800mAh provides a good 12 hours of power usage. Whereas the Xperia T is fuelled with a battery rated at 1850mAh provides around 450 hours of standby time and 7 hours of talk time.


The HTC One X is priced around $640. As for the Sony Xperia T, which will be available in grey, black and white is available around $660.

Wrap Up:

As you’ve probably collected by now, these two devices are really similar. Both are a little bit on the huge part, but still slim enough to fall into a wallet.

It’s the quality where one device wins hand down. Whatever side of the battle you line up on, no one can deny that both of these are best Android phones out there, and certainly two of the best mobile phone devices money can buy.
