Sony Xperia T3 Goes Official, Only 7mm Thick

Remember the smart phone Sony teased yesterday? While we were hoping for another flagship device, Sony had something else in mind. The company just went official with their latest smart phone, the Xperia T3. Now the picture that Sony teased yesterday included “the next big thing” now it seems that Sony was actually being literal. The latest phone in the Xperia family is Xperia T3 and it comes with 5.3 inches of screen, the best part about this device is that it is only 7mm thick, now this isn’t the thinnest device we have seen, but it is definitely a good thing.

That being said, the Xperia T3 isn’t aimed for the high end market. The device comes with relatively fair specifications and will be heading to all those who are looking for mid-range devices. The 5.3 inch screen offers a 720p resolution. However, the pixel density is average at 277 ppi. As for the design, Sony didn’t quite compromise on that, the Xperia T3 will offer the same design we have been seeing ever since the Xperia Z, and to be honest, it doesn’t get any better than this. The design is known as OmniBalance. The sides of the phone are made from Metal, while there’s matte plastic on the back. The Xperia T3 will come in purple, white and black. Continue Reading →

HTC One E8 Goes Official

Remember the rumours about a cheaper version of the HTC One M8 that was supposed to be known as HTC One M8 Ace or HTC One Vogue Edition M8 ACE? Well, the device is finally official, thanks to HTC but is coming with a way more simplistic name than the early rumours suggested. Apart from the name change, there are few differences here and there as compared to the original One M8, however, there are possibilities that people would prefer this over the original.

As compared to the aluminum unibody of the HTC One M8, the One E8 will be coming with a unibody made entirely out of plastic probably to lower the production cost, but there’s nothing much to worry about as the E8 is built on the same impressive design its sibling was built on and offers the exact same elegance, just in plastic this time. Due to the plastic used in the construction, the phone is lighter than the original one but a tad bit thicker (.5 mm) which is negligible. However, there’s 15 grams of difference between the HTC One M8 (160 grams) and HTC One E8 (145 grams) Continue Reading →
