The Xperia T, Xperia V and Xperia TX have been tested in three different tests - Benchmark Pi, NenaMark 2 and Quadrant that test the device's performance. The devices have been compared to the leading smartphones, including theSamsung Galaxy S III and the- HTC One X, And the results certainly look promising.
