About the Phone

Equipped with the premium brand name, Sony tries to rock the flagship market with a decent-looking phone. The nostalgic and robust design is bound to bring back memories for any Sony fans. Xperia L1 also arrives with a decent battery that is capable of keeping the phone running for the better part of the day.


Sony Xperia L1 arrives in the market with a Sony-styled box-like structure – a nostalgic grippy design. While it is of a dated plastic build, Sony Xperia L1 is quite easy to handle and stands out among the rounded smartphone designs that overpopulate the current flagship market.


Sony Xperia L1 has a small battery, but it performs quite well. Light tasks can see it running for a day, and even battery tests found it beating flagship rivals carrying a larger battery that Xperia L1.


On the whole, the Xperia L1 is not a strong phone. It comes with a below-average display and weak performance. IT is not a recommended for the average smartphone use.
