Sony Xperia TX unboxing [Video]

by XB on 9th September 2012

in Videos, Xperia T


The Sony Xperia TX (LT29i) recently went on sale in China and we are starting to see handsets hit customer hands. If you want to know what you get included in the box then check out the video and photos below.

The video shows a white Xperia TX being unboxed, whilst the photos show the pink version. It doesn’t seem that you get too much in the box – microUSB cable, fast charger (EP880), headset (MH750) and the usual documentation. The end of the video appears to show that the phone also boots into a James Bond Skyfall screensaver. For those wondering, yes the Xperia logo does light up at the bottom of the phone (see the last two photos).

    Viewing angels of Screen has improved a lot from previous phones…..

  • Aj

    Stunning

  • Why The Entire Phone Isn’t Pink? I Mean Front Is Black Back Is Pink

  • HereICome

    Does the Xperia logo light up on the T? I would love it to light up since Canada’s probably only going to get the T & it’s a really neat feature.

  • Lunkz

    Yes it does.

  • Ugh now i have to go to shenzen to buy this hell of a phone :) !!!

  • I dont think so but i hope so

  • This will be my replacement for xperia arc. Its absolutely like an advanced xperia arc. No offense, I love this arc family more than the NXT.

  • I wonder where will the micro-sim card slot and the memory card slot be on xperia T. It looks to me like we have to remove the battery to insert the sim and micro sd card in xperia TX.

  • Fraulein

    No it doesn’t

  • Lunkz

    Are you blind? Look at the video 2:15 !

  • I really want either this or the T, I don’t mind the differences much… the thing is I live in México… do you guys advice into getting another version (european, asian,,,)?

  • lovebmw

    you are a guy, shame on you

  • litoni

    are YOU blind? read what HereICome typed first. He is asking Xperia “T” not “TX.”
    And the Video is of TX not the T

    And I do not think the Xperia logo on the “T” will light up like the “TX”

  • litoni

    Here is why the T wont have it.

    If you have seen the AT&T Xperia T, they replaced the Xperia logo with the AT&T’s Logo.
    Whether the AT&T’s logo will light up or not remains a mystery, but as of now there are no sources stating it will light up like the TX.
    As for canada, Rogers’ Logo will most likely replace the Xperia logo like AT&T

  • pavel

    For me arc S is very close to perfect phone,and LT29i is even closer to perfection!!!))))

  • ?? ?
  • HereICome

    Ahh, makes sense. Thank you!

  • naathaanS

    I’m having hard time deciding between this and the V

  • evolutionx1

    I thought it had a 1850mAh Battery but in the screenshot it seems it has a 1700mAh battery. Also there is no dock provided with the phone… Confused :S

  • dereknobuyuki

    Since the T has a sealed battery, it would probably be under the not-so-great looking flap on the upper right side (when holding it in your hand, portrait)

  • amit

    Waiting for a NXT design with S4. maybe the arc design is more comfortable but it lacks the attractive look of NXT series, otherwise I have to compromise on the overweight lumia 920.

  • dereknobuyuki

    There’s not much in that box but certainly a lot more than in my Xperia GX box
    ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYapGKNYKQo )

    Plus, the boxes are a lot more interesting than the bland carrier centric box that I had =P

    Incidentally, the GX Logo that lights up says Sony, this one says Xperia
    Earlier production models said Xperia at the top with light-up Sony on the bottom.
    Final GX release has carrier branding up top and light-up Sony on the bottom
    but this one has Sony on the top and light-up Xperia on the bottom.

    I wonder why…

  • paska

    Why the useless pink color? it kinda fa……

  • paska

    Looks like the unboxing was recorded WITH POTATO…360p….srsly…it not 2007 anymore!

  • Metanol

    Id like to buy it in China, does anybody has a good shop address in Guangzhou ? Thanks

  • What about Europe or Australia, there might be the Xperia logo since we don’t have AT&T or so.

  • Tohar Lalua

    7 things Xperia V is missing:
    a) 32 GB internal memory (though its not an issue)
    b) 2100 mAh battery
    c) Gorrila glass
    d) Dedicated camera button (not an issue for me, for the purist)
    e) Front camera with higher mega pixel
    g) Whitemagic
    h) LED notifications

  • malih

    I think the V has dragontrail glass just like Go and Active

  • Pink doesn’t seem so nice.All i want is white white white!

  • jonny

    Theres a TV dock avail, but i dont like how it only has the MHL out, there are no more USB’s at the back like with the ions smartdocks… No more ps3 controllers TT because they arent immediately compatible with bluetooth without rooting :(

  • I’ve already made up my mind and I will get the T

  • It will illuminate. SONY MOBILE confirmed it on Facebook

  • Chris

    TX only China :( :( :( Looks alot better than T in my opinion.

  • uidesigner_sony
  • lovebmw

    Is it not that all the 2012 models don’t have white magic?

  • lovebmw

    As expected people are confusing the tx with the t…. oh Sony, how can you not see such little variations confuse customers?

  • definitely the prettiest of the three Xperia newbies (even that battery looks good!)…any ideas for the best way to get hold of this in the UK, Xperia Blog Team?? Yours, desperately (!)…

  • Me 2 had the same problem. But I made up my mind to go for the xperia T or TX. Because I usually use the camera button. But i wish that exmor r 2 engine was in xperia T or Tx.

  • Me too I still have the arc S but its bugging me with the internal memory 512 m dats just a shame man!

  • Strange

    the “lit up” Sony logo is forever stunning. This and the T are probably the last phones to bear the liquid energy logo. :(

  • not to mention that the icecream sandwich OS is super annoying I’ve upgraded my xperia arc S and the whole thing became so laggy that I cannot use it anymore
    very annoyed as well

  • This post is about the Xperia TX…what is wrong with you?!

  • you’re in the wrong century.

  • You mean Exmor RS, i agree! If we buy one of these we may be very jealous of those who buy the 2013 phones!

  • Exactly. That’s absolutely true. If i buy this today, tomorrow sony will release a new phone with a variety of different powerful technologies. Its actually so hard to make a decision on which xperia phone to buy, when to buy.

  • lovebmw

    so far 1 person is interested in the TX according to this website
    http://gdgt.com/sony/xperia/tx/ and that would be me…. what kinda fans are you? this phones deserves a high demand unless everyone here thinks otherwise…. come on people start cranking

  • dereknobuyuki

    Would it be wrong to leave a GX review on the TX page?

  • dereknobuyuki

    I have the TV Dock and it’s a great accessory.
    The TV Dock has two ports: micro-USB and HDMI. This is pretty much standard on any MHL adapter.

    For HDMI output to work, MHL requires you to supply power over the USB connection, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plug it into other USB devices.

    So, there may be a way to both power it and plug a usb hub into it.
    Or, if you don’t want to use the HDMI, you should be able to plug other USB things into it. (although you would obviously have to do something about full-size USB ports vs. the micro one)

  • dereknobuyuki

    The dock is sold separately.
    It cost me the equiv. of $20-$30

  • lovebmw

    If you navigate that website you will find a gx page, please leave a review

  • dereknobuyuki

    Yeah, I’ve already done that but it doesn’t help you with the TX

    Still having battery problems, eh? Same here. Android System is always taking up over 40% of my phone’s battery! Wish I knew why… I’m assuming/hoping the eventual bug fix update will fix this. There are quite a few bugs throughout the phone, some that render it unusable without a reboot.

  • Tohar Lalua

    Are you sure about this? link please!!!

  • Tohar Lalua

    Check out Xperia P, this has it!!!

  • dereknobuyuki

    I don’t personally have any trouble with the battery.
    dMarket uses a lot of battery for me since it’s for streaming video from the docomo video store

    Android System has tons of stuff running under it; Mine lists 26 things running under it. It is not surprising for that to take up a lot of battery as well as the screen (if you watch streaming video from the video store while on battery, it will pretty much consume screen+dMarket battery). If it’s taking up 40% of your battery, then I think that just means you’re not running a lot of other battery intensive apps

    iChannel and iConcierge are really bad and annoying.
    I’m not sure why they have to notify 8 times in a row so you think your phone is ringing or that possibly an earthquake warning messages is coming through. (Plus we pay money for those less than useful services… as interesting as it may be to see what the current electrical utilization is for various regions of Japan vs. the hourly capacity to prevent blackouts)

    It’s always a good idea to reboot any device like these regularly.
    I rarely have any trouble with it plus it boots up extremely quickly.
    A couple times, I’ve had trouble getting past the lock screen in that it doesn’t fade away completely and have to turn the screen off and on and unlock again. Also, sometimes, the walkman app is not longer connected to the lock screen but I think that’s because more than one app is trying to “connect” to the lock screen media playback controls.

    But, like I said, I have no problems 99.9% of the time and rebooting regularly is always good. The battery can’t be helped and is unfortunate, but it’s big enough to more than last a typical day.

    By the end of a typical day, it’s down to 40-50% battery whereas my power-savvy undervolted X10 only goes down to 70% (heavily power utilization optimized rom). But, I don’t use things like navigation plus I carry a compact battery charger.

  • Coollead

    Good to hear it! My battery barely lasts 4 or 5 hours if I’m using the phone. If I’m working and leave the phone at my desk, after 6 hours of not touching the phone, the battery is down to 55-60%. Something in Android System is keeping the phone awake near constantly. I reboot every day, trying to figure out the root of the problem, but I can’t. Battery life is far better than when I first got the phone, but it’s still terrible. I had to buy Docomo’s largest external battery (5000mAh) just to keep it going when I’m out on a weekend.

    For iChannel, I canceled it, because the Docomo store guy was like “They told you had to keep it for 3 months… no one cares, I’ll delete it for you.”. Same with all the other useless Docomo apps. I’ve kept iConcierge, but changed the settings so it only vibes twice, like a gmail.

    I get errors constantly. The data will often cut out and not reconnect to anything (LTE, HSPA, 3G, even Wifi) without a reboot, the camera app will crash when opening or taking a photo, the lockscreen does what you described often, the home screen crashes/refreshes, Osaifu Keitai things sometimes crash when opening them…. Just a lot of little bugs that can be patched up easily with a software update.

  • pleitti

    i want the earphones :DD

  • malih

    it’s probably time for you to install custom ROM, there’s a lot of stock based ROM that are stable and speedy.

    Also remember not to install apps that have services running in the background, use SystemPanel Lite from Play Store to see what Apps have services that runs all the time, uninstall the App.

  • Kriidz
  • I really want to get this phone, but most importantly, I need to know if the 1700 and 2100 mhz band is really capable of 3G-/4G (HSPA+) on T-Mobile USA? it’s the only one concern in my mind that I need to confirm.

  • daniel

    i am eagerly waiting for tx release in but i heard that there are some problems regarding auto rotation in this phone. is it true?????.

  • Andrew

  • Dan
