Summary: On the whole it's a very nice phone, but I should have done more research before buying as the battery doesn't seem to hold its charge very well. I have to top up every day, even though I only use it to check my emails and browse the internet for less than an hour daily. I don't think it would be much good if used for some serious gaming/video/music downloading. Have found it to be a common problem with Sony Xperia when compared to some of the other well known brands.
Pros: Light weight. Easy to use. Got all mod technology, None that I have noticed
Summary: Brilliant phone,does all it says and more, good price, BUT opened the box NO earphones. contacted customer service (by chat) told it doesn't say included (have you EVER bought a phone where they weren't in the box?) it also doesn't anywhere say you will need to buy some either. Told to ring "electrical aftercare" - of course at my own expense! why is no one willing to "go the extra mile" to help anymore? Don't buy unless your willing to spend more money.
Summary: I managed to pick up a new Xperia L handset for a decent price and was pleased at the upgrade from my old Gingerbread OS platform to the Jellybean OS. It was noticeably faster, smoother and more intuitive, but unfortunately I do have some bugbears with the handset itself. First off, and this is my main gripe, the video is just terrible. I am not sure how they managed to go backwards from my old phone (Xperia Neo) in terms of both video and audio quality.
Summary: the sony L is mine first smartphone so if i am expecting too much bear with me. the first one lasted six days before it bricked up while using it. luckily i was in town near where the virgin media shop is, so took it back. they messed about with for half an hour but couldnt get an life out of it or the phone to charge. so i got a another , six weeks later this morning this one died. blank screen and dreaded red light.
Summary: I still prefer the Sony Arc, which packed up after only a year. However nice this phone is, it's battery life is poor, even when using the Battery STAMINA mode, it's nothing like the battery life discribed. I will be lucky to get a full day of battery life from the phone, I don't have too many apps to save the battery life. Picture quailty is nice, but I've seen better pictures from a 8.0 Meg Pixel Phone.
Excerpt: Sony Xperia L , I have brought for my brother , but before handing over to him I have used it for 2 to 3 weeks as my daily driver , just to check if the phone doesnt have any issues, so based on the usage , let me break it down to whats good and what not good.
Summary: This phone is good for multitasking and playing games. When it comes to camera don't be fooled by the Exmor RS camera. Do check out the cons below!
