Xperia™ L
Experience Sony camera expertise in a smartphone
Every moment captured perfectly
Fast-capture camera

The 8 megapixel fast-capture camera with Exmor RS™ takes sharp, clear pictures in any light. You can enjoy them on the generous 4.3-inch display and share them easily. With HDR for pictures and video, your subjects look bright, even when backlit. And there's a dedicated camera key that shoots even from a locked screen, launching the camera from sleep to snap.

Sharper viewing, better listening

The large 4.3-inch display is great for watching movies as well as videos that you shot using the camera. The superior screen quality makes every image brighter, and memories feel as vivid as the day you shot them. But it's not just about the visual experience. With Sony sound and Clear Audio+, you can listen to all your music and audiovisual content with impressive clarity.

Fast performance and improved battery life

The Xperia L runs on the latest Android OS using a dual-core processor that ensures top performance. The phone also has a large 1700mAh battery to help deal with the demands of daily usage. To reduce battery drain, use the Battery STAMINA mode feature, which recognises when your display is not active and turns off functions that you don' t need. At the same time, Battery STAMINA mode keeps active the notifications that you actually want. Then, as soon as you wake up your phone, everything is up and running again.

This is a brilliant mid range handset from Sony. Has a premium feel about it and actually feel much nicer in the hand than the plasticy Samsung range of handsets.

The design is really nice, it has a slight arch to it and a silver trim. Best of all it has a dedicated camera button! I don't know about you, but I've missed a camera button on mobiles, so much easier to use than the screen button. The actual camera isn't as responsive as I'd like, it sometimes feels like an age has passed between pressing the button and a photo being taken compared to other smartphones I've used.

The screen is a good size and is nice and clear. There are 3 software buttons at the bottom of the screen and these disappear in certain situations and can be fiddle to get back (e.g. when you want to exist picture view mode). Given there is space under the screen itself I'm surprised Sony didn't pop the buttons there as most other manufacturers do. At the bottom of the handset is a little light, one that's far more subtle than the light bar you see on some Sony handsets.

It's nippy to use, takes good photos and is a good all round handset. Perfect for anyone that wants a nice handset but isn't bothered about a massive screen of loads of processors. This gets the job done and looks good while it's doing it.

This is an excellent Phone and Great value for money.

I did quite a lot of research before ordering this phone from Amazon. I was looking for a mid priced Android phone with a larger than average screen, SD card slot and dual core processor, the Sony Xperia L matched the specification that I was looking for plus it is backed by a well known brand.

This phone lives up to what I expected and even more, the screen is a great size and very clear, still visible outside even in bright sunlight.

Thanks Amazon and Sony.

This phone is fantastic for a mid range phone,i haven't had any problems with it, its does everything its supposed to. The phone its self is perfect to fit in your pocket, the camera is great for 8mp, the screen quality is fantastic, very clear, the battery life is great, but not so great if your playing games and going on apps but otherwise a great little phone... I would greatly recommend this phone to anybody. :) A+++

Colour Name: Black
Purchased this phone after owning a Blackberry curve for a couple of years. Did a fair bit of research on various alternatives such as the Samsung Galaxy S3/S4 mini, Blackberry 10 models, Nokia Lumia and a few others, however in the end I opted for the Xperia L. A major attraction was the brand. Sony in my opinion are a class leading, iconic brand and I have owned plenty of their products over the years, and been very pleased. And with the Xperia L, I am not dissapointed.

In terms of value for money I think this phone is superb. I only paid £120 (from another seller). The screen is a good sized 4.3 inches - the same as it's more upmarket brother, the Z1 compact. However I didn't want anything too big that I couldn't fit in my pocket. This phone is a great compromise in that respect. The screen resolution/clarity is excellent, it's userfriendly and easy to understand, and the internet is pretty quick. I like features like the built in 'Walkman' software also. The camera is also very good.
I also think this phone is a looker. Its sleek with some nice detailing like the aluminium power button, and curved rear. One my friends has an i phone 5c and - in my opinion - it looks cheaper and less classy than the Xperia L. The led notification light is also a smart touch. Build quality and fit and finish are also to a high standard. Battery life is very good and you have the option to use Sony's 'Stamina' powersave feature which helps run the phone more economically.

Downsides? Almost nothing really. I feel the back cover (as others have mentioned) is slightly fiddly to remove and the volume up/down buttons don't feel quite as nice to use as my previous Blackberry phone. It is also a touch on the heavy side but not that different from rivals.

i have used an HTC and currently using a Samsung Galaxy S3, so naturally when i thought of buying my wife a new phone i looked at these 2 brands first. She didn't want a Samsung because I already have a Samsung and it would be 2 too many, and I didn't want to buy HTC because i have already had it once, and we definitely didn't want Windows phone or an iPhone either because they are too darn expensive and they are closed systems in which you can't even change the battery yourself. Being a supporter of open source Android was the only option left and having compared several makes like LG, and several of Sony's, we settled for Xperia L. Great looks and design, brilliant sound quality which Sony are known for, 8MP camera with 1Ghz dual core processor and 1GB RAM and a fantastic 4.3 inch display which is very ergonomic. At £190, this was a bargain deal!

And for people into smartphone photography, the camera in this phone does HDR (high dynamic range) photography as well, isn't that great? WE love it!
