Sony may have lost favor with a bunch of its fans after its recent disaster with the Xperia range’s quality, but the company does seem determined to step back into the smartphone race. The latest head-turner in the smartphone realm is the Xperia T3, crowned as the world’s thinnest 5.3-inch device. While most fans hated the fact that the phones ancestor, the Xperia T2 Ultra’s screen was a little too big, the T3 comes with a more manageable screen and promises to slip into the tightest jean pockets, making geeks, hipsters and geeky hipsters happy. Apart from the fact that this smartphone is quite ergonomic, it also does make for a pretty good mid-range device! Here’s why.

The Sony Xperia T3 sports a 720p HD screen resolution, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 1.1 MP front camera, a 1.4 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and a 2,500 mAh battery. The phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat and measures in at just 150.7x77x7 mm. Weighing approximately 148 grams, the Xperia T3 is a device you’ll want to pull out of your pocket time and again, for the silliest reasons!
