Sony Xperia TL Review

25 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Sony made a gorgeous phone that seemingly has the potential to be the device that finally delivers its elusive home run hit. That potential is sadly wasted on a device that has just enough frustrations to be another link in a chain of disappointments. The Xperia TL has an incredible camera, marvelous hardware, and better than expected software, but the total package - the oomph that makes a device an all-around pleasure to own - is absent from the device.

Dialed in on 007

Gear Patrol
11 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Sony has struggled to create a successful smartphone in a U.S. Android handset market stuffed tighter than Oddjob in a dinner jacket. Its latest Xperia TL flagship, however, is the first compelling device we’ve seen from the lauded Japanese electronic giant, thanks to a spec list that can finally stand toe to toe with other top-tiered devices from the likes of HTC and Samsung.

Sony Xperia TL Review

Phone Arena
2 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Part of being a world famous secret agent, James Bond will surely appreciate that he’s finally given a smartphone for his missions – as opposed to the dummy phones of yesterday, though, the Ericsson concept phone in Tomorrow Never Dies was an interesting one. Also, when you take into account the modern hardware and attractive price point of $99.99 that’s attached with the Sony Xperia TL , it has the appeal to make even Bond call it his daily driver.
  • Pros: Great balance of price & hardware, Sturdy construction, Snaps photos quickly
  • Cons: Very reflective display and poor viewing angles, Muted call quality, Physical buttons are too crowded

Sony Xperia TL (AT&T) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
1 November 2012
  • Summary: Gimmicky movie tie-ins aside, the Sony Xperia TL is a very good mid-level Android phone. For $99, consumers get a large HD display, a powerful processor and long battery life. And while the 13-MP isn't the fastest on the block, it captures plenty of detail. The Xperia TL's NFC capabilities also help lend some 007 high-tech cred to the device.

Sony Xperia TL Review: A Beautiful Creature Dropped On Its Head

5 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Sony’s latest flagship, the Xperia TL, is a nice step up from its latest adventure in mediocrity, the Xperia Ion. But just because it’s 007′s phone in Skyfall , that doesn’t mean it should be yours. I mean, that guy is kind of a loose canon.
