Top Customer Reviews
The hardware is basically the same, both offer Quad core CPU (International version) at 1.5 GHz for the LG 4x and 1.4 GHz for the GS3, while the Xperia T offers a dual core 1.5 GHz. I can tell that 0.1 GHz is not a big deal in performance, but Quad Core does a lot better than Dual Core if the OS it’s well optimized for it, so Xperia T loses this one.
Storage and RAM:
When I decided to buy a new phone I decided that 16 GB where enough for my needs. Xperia T and LG 4X offer 16 Gigs of internal storage, while you can get up to 64 gigs in the GS3 for some extra bucks. The 3 devices have micro-SD slots, up to 64 gigs for GS3 and LG 4X while Xperia gets up to 32 gigs. RAM wise the 3 devices offer 1 GB. Xperia T loses again.
This is where the Xperia T kicks a** by offering a 13.0 MP camera while the other 2 devices offer 8.0 MP, they all have autofocus and LED flash. Most review say that GS3 camera is better than LG 4X and after doing a side by side comparison I realized this was true, also I found out that the GS3 camera is a bit faster. But we all know that Sony is well known for the HQ pics in their devices and is the only one offering a 2 stage shutter button, Sony wins this one, LG 4x loses.
Xperia T: 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.55 inches (~323 ppi pixel density)
GS3: 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.8 inches (~306 ppi pixel density)
LG 4X: 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.7 inches (~312 ppi pixel density)
Xperia T has got the best looking screen, but also it’s the smallest one, GS3 offer the biggest screen but has the lowest ppi, LG 4X stands in the middle with a good screen size and a good ppi, head to head with the GS3 I like the looking of the LG 4X screen more than GS3, contrast ratio and color definition of the True HD-IPS LCD seems to be better than Super AMOLED screen. So since the 3 devices offer the same resolution at different screen sizes and ppi the middle term of the LG 4X wins here.
This is the weak point of more smartphones this days! They are really power hungry devices with their huge screens, multicore processors and 3G networks. Sony offers a non-removable 1850 mAh battery, while SG3’s got 2100 mAh battery and the LG 4X offers 2150 mAh battery, both removable. 50 mAh are not a big difference and GS3 seems to have the best talk battery life time, while coming pretty close for web browsing. Sony loses this one with over all short battery life.
I saw some head-to-head benchmark for processing, video rendering and web browsing at which LG 4X and GS3 would come pretty close in performance, LG being a little faster for 3D video rendering. Both devices perform greatly and the LG 4X is about $100 cheaper so if you are in a tight budget you should go for the LG if you don’t mind lacking 4G LTE connectivity, but since there’s no 4G in my country yet that was not a problem for me.
Over all I’m pretty pleased with this device, preforms greatly (gaming, web browsing, social networks, etc.) it’s good looking, doesn’t looks or feel cheap and it has a great performance for the price I paid, I updated the OS to Jelly Bean a couple of days after getting it and everything is running smoothly. My only complaint so far is that I have to recharge it using a USB port for it won’t make it through the day with an overnight charge with some intense use, and trust me with a device like this you are going to make some intense use of it.
Regarding the vendor I have to say that the delivery was in time, the box and everything else was sealed, all the accessories where in the box. There were some minor scratches in the box but nothing to serious. Since this is an international phone the charger is not for the American power outlet, the vendor sent an adapter but if you plug the charger all the way into the adapter the device it won’t work, all I have to do is barely pull it back and it will work fine. You can get an adapter at any hardware store for anyway.
As for those complaining about the low speaker problem... Personally, I can live with it due to using my headphones that already has a volume booster control. There is however an app on google play that helps boost/tweak up the on-board speakers higher than normal, but at the owner's own risk - boost it past 100% of the safety levels and your device's speakers WILL die permanently. A boost of 30% above the norm was as high as I dared go during testing, which 10% lower than the 40% safety margin the app's instructions said, and the sound was better than before.
So far, this phone is a great buy if you're looking for an affordable quad-core tegra 3 phone. Just take note that you'll have to work on manually updating the phone via official and custom updates to really get the most out of it. Another good thing to note is that if you're a hard core gamer, an extra battery or two would really help you in the long run. Because no matter what phone you've got, if you're a mobile gamer, one battery ain't enough no matter what phone you have if the battery is easily accessible.
A-GPS needs 1-4 minutes to lock on to satelites compared to the iphone which is almost instant, but hey as long as it works I'm happy. I have had issues where the screen turns itself on. The speaker quality is great with some things, and horrible with others...I don't know what bright engineer decided to install a speaker on the back of the device.
All in all for the price you're going to save half what the newest phones cost, and the one I received was actually built in March 2013 so that's pretty sweet! I'd recommend the phone, but be aware there are not many cases or screen protectors to choose from, compared to iphone. If you want to save a few hundred bucks buy this phone, other than the crappy speaker on some apps I love it! And the large screen makes the iphone screen look like sooo small
