Sony Xperia L – Out For Grabs

by May 8, 2013 0 comments

The Xperia L is now available online for pre-orders. Grab one for Rs. 18990. The handset is viewed as a strong competitor to the Nokia Lumia 720, as both possess almost the same specifications. The Sony Xperia L will run on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and sport a 4.3 inch display.

Sony Xperia LKey Features:

  • 4.3 inch  TFT capacitive touchscreen
  • Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS
  • 1 GHz dual-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 MP primary camera
  • VGA secondary camera

The handset features a 4.3 inch scratch-resistant display with a 480 x 854 pixel resolution. It comes with an internal memory of 8 GB, which is quite sufficient. You can further extend it up to 32 GB. The 8 MP rear camera is capable of recording videos at 720p. Moreover, the VGA front-facing camera promises you a decent video-calling experience.

While most of the high-end smartphones these days pack-in a quad-core processor, this one features a standard 1 GHz dual-core processor which may slightly affect its overall performance. A powerful 1 GB RAM fills up the empty space. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G and Micro-USB. Moreover, the handset also supports NFC functionality. A 1750 mAh battery offers a maximum talk-time of up to 9 hours which is quite decent.

No doubt, both seem to be going head-to-head. However, the Xperia L houses a slightly better RAM and a powerful primary camera. But, when it comes to battery, the Lumia 720 bags the prize.

Final Verdict:
The gadget is pumped up with some amazing features. Sony could have offered something better than a VGA rear camera. At Rs. 18990, the handset seems a bit expensive. But, keeping aside the price factor, the Xperia L surely has a lot in store for you.
