  • Exciting week

    I think I am going to upgrade to teh Xperia T this week, I like it and I hope it works out well. Nexus 4 looks amazing too, but I am huge sony fan so I think I will give them a shot.

      Seriously, Sony confuses me with their Xperia line. Everything is branded Xperia, which makes it hard to product differentiate. Personally, I’m sticking with the Nexus 4. Specs on the Nexus 4 just seem superior:
      CPU – Krait quadcores vs. Krait duocores
      GPU – Adreno 320 vs. Adreno 225

      Albeit, if you need LTE and storage, I guess Sony might have the advantage. On the other hand, if having the latest OS is important, you won’t get screwed with a Nexus product.

      Just my little take on Sony.
