Amidst all the hoopla surrounding quad-processors and large-screens, we tend to forget that at the end of the day, there are many among us who only want to spend over Rs. 15,000 on phones that look and feel like they deserve that kind of money. If you fall into this category, you should look at the Sony Xperia L. We admit the Xperia L’s specs don’t look like much and you’ll find lower priced phones with better performance, but what matters is that the Xperia L’s hardware doesn’t stop it from being a usable device. What does help the Xperia L stand out is the trademark Sony curved design and great looking interface. The phone is also solidly built and doesn’t look like an anonymous rectangle of plastic and glass. If aesthetics and design get higher weightage in your book over hardware and performance, the Xperia L is worth considering.
The Sony Xperia L is powered by a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm processor. Adreno 305 GPU,1GB of RAM and a 1700mAh battery. It sports a 4.3-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels and an 8MP camera along with a 0.3MP front-facing camera. It also offers 8GB of internal storage and supports microSD cards up to 32GB.
