Let's start this with a disclaimer: I do not believe there is significant meaning behind synthetic benchmarks in correlation with real-world use. We've seen, time and again, some high-scoring phones output questionable performance. In this regard, Samsung is one of the usual culprits, and despite having opted for some of the highest spec configurations on each and every one of their flagships, many of them still managed to lag.

Run Multiple Small Apps on the Sony Xperia T and TX
One of the coolest OEM-specific customizations found on newer Sony Xperia devices is the Small Apps feature.

To get started on your own Xperia T or TX, you will first need to be on a deodexed ROM. Then you simply flash the update from a custom recovery, and you’re good to go. Make sure you have a Nandroid backup handy just in case anything goes wrong, though.
