Sony Xperia L1 is a decent smartphone for those in the market for a mid-range offering. It features a 5.5-inch HD display, a quad-core processor, and a USB Type-C port.
Years or maybe months ago, the Sony Xperia L1 would have been considered a very stylish device. But it falls short when compared to the plethora of devices on the market with thinner bezels.
Sony Xperia L1 is also not near the slimmest or lightest at about 8.7 millimetres in thickness and 180 grams in weight. But Sony says it made this to fit perfectly into your hand.
The company provides a large, ‘high-quality’ 5.5-inch IPS display with a ‘loop surface design’ on the device. This offers you ample screen estate for content viewing. But a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels is, no doubt, not the perfect choice.
You get a 13 megapixel rear camera for capturing those memorable moments. It has an f/2.2 aperture, autofocus and LED flash. On the front is a wide-angle 5 megapixel selfie snapper. There is 16 GB of internal storage. The phone also accepts microSD cards having a capacity of up to 256 GB.
The Sony Xperia L1 looks ready to offer the quality of performance satisfactory mainly to entry level users. It carries a quad-core MediaTek MT6737T chipset whose speed maxes at about 1.45 GHz. This combines with a Mali-T720 MP2 GPU and 2GB RAM. You may expect decent performance then, especially considering the available memory. Sony Xperia L1 boots a customised variant of Android 7.0 Nougat OS.
For power supply, you get a 2620mAh battery rated capable of giving nearly 13 hours of talk time. The Sony Xperia L1 offers 4G LTE (Cat. 4) connectivity for super fast mobile data speeds. One of its key selling features has to be a reversible USB Type-C connector. There is a Smart Cleaner feature that helps to make the device run faster by deactivating apps not in use and clearing cache.
