Sony Xperia L Review: In Depth

Recombu
5 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The Sony Xperia L is an inoffensive, capable Android smartphone. The latest Android experience Sony offers users is the most refined and flexible iteration yet and the company seem to have struck a nice balance between, performance, design and price across all their devices. At the Xperia L’s current price tag of around £220, we’d rather opt for the 4G-toting Sony Xperia SP, but chances are it will rapidly drop down, making this a powerful, affordable mid-ranger with a...
  • Pros: Premium UI, Promising camera, Ergonomic design
  • Cons: Underwhelming battery, Low internal storage, Expensive

Sony Xperia L review: Xperia Lite

GSM Arena
3 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Sony has a plan and is sticking to it. Not a piece of tactical genius either but one that seems to work for it. A couple of phones did well for Sony in the midrange last year and the right touches here and there was all they needed to be highly competitive again. We liked it how the Xperia SP built on the Xperia P and the Xperia L would've been foolish not to adopt the same strategy.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual or quad-band HSPA support, 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 4.3" 16M-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels) at around 228 ppi, Android OS v4.1.2 Jelly Bean, Dual-core 1 GHz Krait CPU, Adreno 305 GPU, Qualcomm MSM8230 Snapdragon chipset, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of inbuilt storage (5.8 GB user available), microSD slot (32GB supported), 8 MP autofocus camera, single LED flashlight, geotagging, touch focus, HDR...
  • Cons: No 1080p video capture, poor video quality, No Mobile BRAVIA engine, Sub-par viewing angles, Rather big and heavy for its display size

  • Conclusion: We are left a little confused at the end of this review, mainly because we really wanted to like the Xperia L. We're always fans of a phone that you can show off to your friends and have them say "yeah, that's a nice phone", only for you to be able to say "but wait, did you see this?" and hear them gasp as you show off the neat party trick. That neat party trick is clearly the camera, and as we have said, we feel that the camera is really something special.

Sony Xperia L Review

6 November 2013
  • Conclusion: This is a good buy in its price range and offers good features too. Its low screen resolution can be the only reason to avoid.
  • Pros: The Sony Xperia L offers rich features and justifies its price. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS, dual camera, 1 GB RAM, and 1 GHz Qualcomm dual core processor with many more exiting features. It has long battery life.
  • Cons: Sony Xperia L offers a low screen resolution compared to others mobiles in its price range. Same was the problem with Xperia M.

Sony Xperia L review

2 September 2013
  • Conclusion: In the end the Sony Xperia L is a rather disappointing handset. Even if you set the physical design to one side and concentrate on the innards, there are a lot of niggles, and some serious irritation around the fact that the main camera doesn’t live up to the hype, and that there’s far too much bloatware. As I said before the £200 mark is a crowded spot for smartphones, so I’d advise you to shop around.
  • Pros: Sharp and vivid display, Solid performer, Dedicated camera key
  • Cons: Dubious design, Camera is rather disappointing, Scant storage, too much bloatware

Sony Xperia L review Review

CNET
8 August 2013
  • Summary: With its black, arched design and silver details, the Sony Xperia L is definitely among the better-looking budget phones. Its older version of Android and software bugs really let it down though. The Google Nexus 4 is a much better phone all round and only costs £10 more.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Decent screen colours, Inexpensive
  • Cons: Unimpressive performance, Some software bugs, Lacklustre camera, Older version of Android, Screen resolution could be higher
