The addition of LTE across networks globally has caused a number of headaches for people when deciding their next handset. It’s not simple enough to know that a phone supports LTE, you need to make sure it is compatible with the correct bands that is supported by your mobile network and region.
Sony Mobile currently has eight phones globally that supports LTE frequencies. Whilst LTE has existed for a while in markets such as the US, Japan and South Korea, it is only starting to appear in other regions across Europe, North America and Asia. Sony has provided a very useful table which shows exactly which Xperia phone (and region) is supported by each LTE band. Click here for the full list of LTE compatibility for Xperia smartphones.
