Look and Feel

 

Sony's Xperia TX at first touch is super light weighing in at just 127g, it is definitely a light phone. It almost feels too light. The size of the phone is 131x 68.6 x 8.6mm - so it's not huge, but it sits in the hand well and with that 127g of weight - it's one of the lightest smartphones I've ever used.

 

The Xperia TX is definitely a great looking smartphone, with its curved back giving it a beautiful look. Starting at the front of the device, we'll begin with our photos.

The front of the Sony Xperia TX features the Sony logo at the top, to the right of which we have the front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera and to the right of that (which you can't see as it's not lit up) is an activity light. This will turn different colors depending on the activity - charging displays green, blue flashing means you have a message/e-mail/notification waiting. Down the bottom of the Xperia TX we have the XPERIA branding logo.

Flipping Xperia TX on its back we have the 13-megapixel rear-facing camera centered at the top of the device with the LED flash featured underneath. Down the bottom we have a nice XPERIA logo branding again. Under the branding, is the rear speaker.

On the right side of the phone we have the microUSB charging/syncing port, volume rocker and something we don't see often; a dedicated camera button. This button can be pressed to snap pictures, or begin the start of a video recording.

On the other side, we have the power button and opposite that, we have a little slit that you can use to open the phone up to get to the battery/SIM/microSD portion of the phone.

On the very top of the phone we have the usual 3.5mm headphone/speaker jack.

And with the Xperia TX, the bottom is spared - thanks to the microUSB port being on the right hand side of the handset.
