Benchmarks

 

The Sony Xperia TX was a bit hit and miss with benchmarks, so let's get right into it. First off we have GLBenchmark 2.5.1, and the 2.1 Egypt Classic Offscreen running in 1080p.

The Xperia TX beats the mid-range Optimus L9, which isn't surprising, isn't much worse than the Xperia Tablet S, and nips on the heels of the Nexus 7. When it comes to the Nexus 4, it simply gets its ass handed to it, even though it is a more expensive handset.

 

Next up we have the Fill Rate Offscreen, again at 1080p.

Surprisingly, the Xperia TX gets completely trounced by the competition here, every single other device we've benchmarked thus far beats the Xperia TX.

 

Second to last, we have Quadrant 2.1.1 Pro with the Full Benchmark Total Score.

The Xperia TX makes a come back here, coming out on top of the Quadrant 2.1.1 Pro benchmark, edging even the Transformer Pad Infinity and Nexus 4.

 

And finally, some battery tests using GLBenchmark's built-in battery test, running 2.5 Egypt HD 60fps.

Battery life wasn't actually too bad on the Xperia TX, equaling my everyday phone, the Nexus 4. I found this surprising, considering the Nexus 4 is a powerhouse, but keeps its battery life under control.
