Sony Xperia L Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

There was a time few years back, when Sony was in trouble while being separated from its partnership with Ericsson. Sony was not doing well in collaboration with Ericsson in terms of sales while there were conflicts of ideas too. Samsung was just about peaking at that time as Nokia was on the verge of losing its throne as the number one cell phone manufacturing brand. It is a commendable job as to what Sony has done since then, for not only it recovered from its separation but has been able to stay competitive as compared to the other heavyweights like Samsung and HTC. The Xperia series has turned out to be a phenomenal success for the company and has managed to capture the imagination of the consumers by its distinctive and classy designs that make their gadgets stand out.

The Xperia series has gadgets in various price range and Sony Xperia L is a mid range smartphone that comes with a 4.3 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480 by 854 pixels along with a pixel density of 228ppi. The scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass protects the screen as the user gets to interact with the display by using up to 4 fingers. As far as the dimensions of the smartphone are concerned, Sony Xperia L comes with a length of 128.7mm, breadth of 65mm and thickness of 9.7mm. The smartphone weighs 137 grams and is boosted by an impressive hardware set. Under the hood, the gadget holds a dual core processor that clocks at 1GHz while the RAM is of 1GB – a considerable amount indeed. The software platform of Android Jelly Bean 4.1 comes preloaded in the gadget but the user can upgrade it to the Android KitKat 4.4 operating system.

Consequent to the update, Sony Xperia L would get access to the latest games and applications. Officially, an 8GB internal memory comes preloaded in the gadget but after the curtailment for application installation, the user gets 5.8GB of it for personal usage that may include storage of songs, games, images and videos. A microSD card slot would help the cause further as well ensuring 32GB enhancement of the external memory. Internet is absolutely secure and packed with the latest provisions that include various tethering features like dual band, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hot spot, DLNA etc. There is GPRS and EDGE as well that delivers a web surfing speed of 85.6Kbps and 237Kbps respectively. Also, NFC, Bluetooth and USB port are options for data exchange activities.

An 8 megapixels primary camera does a great job in image snapping at a resolution of 3264 by 2448 pixels. Auto focus, LED flash, geo-tagging and touch focus are just few of the multiple tools that accompany the primary shutter. And, the secondary camera of 0.3 megapixels too plays its part well by permitting video calling over Wi-Fi. There are two colors of Black and White that Sony Xperia L can be chosen. The non-removable standard lithium-ion battery of 1750mAh gives out a standby time of up to 498 hours in 2G and up to 454 hours in 3G. The talk time is up to 8 hours and 30 minutes in 2G and up to 9 hours in 3G. A substantial amount of music playtime is also observed with up to 43 hours and 12 minutes.
