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.
- 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.
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.
