Default It is true, XPERIA TX has different screens.

Hello,
My friend and I bought 2 XPERIA TX, I noticed that his screen looks better than mine, it's very clear that his viewing angles is also better than mine.

When I looked into the software info for both phones, I found one difference.
It's the Touch Firmware Version, mine is c while his is b.

Both phones are HK version, but my phone is ZH/EN and his phone is HK/CH

This is really makes me so angry

Here are two screen shots for software info from our phones.

Current Devices,
XPERIA Z1, XPERIA Z Ultra & One

Old Devices,
Blackstone, Desire, Wildfire, ARC, SGS II, Sensation, XPERIA S, SGS III, XPERIA TX, One X, SGS 4, XPERIA Z

I don't think that alone proves it's a completely difference screen. I think the touch screen digitizer is different compared to the screen itself. How did you get to the software info screen? I want to know what my version is as well.

What do you mean by better? Take some pictures or sth.

Tbh no phones are made perfect, so why complain? You're already better than people who has defected phones.

SONY VAIO Z
SONY XPERIA Z
SONY XPERIA TABLET Z2

Is your Xperia having issues? Try repairing it with Sony's PC Companion or Sony's Update Service first before posting.
Remember to back up your data before proceeding and do internal wipes [factory reset under settings] as well.

Use the latest FlashTool to flash FTF files if PCC and SUS fails to recognize/repair your Xperia.
Full tutorial on how to use FlashTool.

Better means better, specially in viewing angles, the phone with b firmware has much better viewing angles than c.

Defected phones are not my concern here, if I got a defected phone I'll go to SONY Service Center, that's easy.

BTW I'm a SONY fan, and I love my TX, it's really a great phone, and in general it 's better than One X and SGS III.
But if SONY is releasing the handset with different hardware, they should state it and discriminate between them.

The difference between touch firmware versions means that we have 2 different touch panels ( digitizers ).

I hope you got it now.

Mine is C, and overall the screen it's ok, but yes, the viewing angles are very poor.

This is the same as typing *#*#SERVICE#*#* into the phone keypad - which is a bit easier to remember!

If I helped, hit Thanks!
