Speed test: Xperia T pitted against iPhone 5

by XB on 4th October 2012

in Videos, Xperia T

The Apple iPhone 5 has been benchmarked as one of the fastest smartphones around. However, if you want to know how it fares in real world examples against the new Sony Xperia T, then you’ll be glad to hear that TechRadar has pitted both against each other.

They used three comparative ‘real life’ tests for each phone. This included 1) time taken to boot, 2) loading a web page and 3) video streaming from YouTube. Obviously tests like these are subjective, but as you’ll see in the video below the iPhone 5 takes the edge. However, the margins of victory are so minor that we wonder whether the average user would really notice the difference.

    no way was it 4 seconds between the iPhone and Xperia T for bootup, they timed it awfully, Xperia T was 22 seconds max, nowhere near 24.

    Who honestly would worry about start up time. Only phone i have had with a problem with that was the old blackberry curve. It took 3 years to come on.

    Now wait until Vanilla Android is ready for Xperia S, devs. make a port for T or V and compare them again. iPhone will look like a slowpoke.
    We have AOSP, Custom ROMs, a big community, awesome project butter, etc. iPhone users have… Have… Have… Memories of Steve Jobs?

    What I like about the Xperia T is that it’s attracting a lot of media, whether it’s good or bad this just means that the T is a real competitor in the market.
    And this is what we’ve been waiting for a long time now.
    A Sony phone that takes place in the market and rival top notch phones.

    iOS6 vs Android ICS >> unfair

    iOS6 vs Android Jelly Bean >> Android win

    That is the true.

  • the hell. why iphone is still the fastest. but still iphone is still toooo pricey and xperia even a couple seconds delayed is still has reasonable price and stylish so xperia wins for me.

  • Sony Xperia T is Better than the iPhone 5. its a Water and Dust proof phone. 3D panels.. Xperia has a Style and Beautiful specs that can beat iPhone5.

  • Idiot King

    why donot we compare the best of android with the best of iphone, this was an unfair comparison since xperia T isnot the best of android, Xperia Z is the one, and I bet Xperia Z is Faster than the Iphone 5… Think Again
