Using this phone for 3 years, very nice camera, front camera is VGA and its low, but i rarly use it.
8 GB is too low, all the time i need to clean the memory and anyway have lags, in rest its a nice phone for internet, whatsapp and email checking.
This is the worst phone there is - the only thing worse is the service or lack of it from John Lewis. My phone lasted 1 DAY and John Lewis in collusion with Sony said that despuite any evidence on the phone - it was user fault.
May well be a fine phone but be very wary if anything goes wrong.
Sorry Sony off to LG or even Samsung now
I have this phone about 3 years, and it still works fine but I'm having problems with storage (i have to erase internal storage every now and Then,is it smart?) and battery life sucks, i have to charge it two times a day, i should probably Change it and i'm thinking about getting a New Xperia XA
when you say current market rate, you should try to sell it on olx or quikr and find it out yourself. exchange value at flipkart is a gimmick. they fool people with those prices. Depending upon your phone condition this phone can be sold for at least Rs.4000, give or take 500.

This phone is pretty powerful because it has the dual core 1Ghz "Krait" CPU although it's Snapdragon 400 and Adreno 300 GPU is outdated. Yeah, its old but its specs still challenges most of the phones of 2016. Even NOVA 3 runs smoothly on this phone.. yeah battery drains quicker than before but still it is a very good phone.

I purchased Sony Experia L in 2013 . It works well till last Month. It started charging less than 15% then I called at Helpline They have no updates of its repairing Centers. They messages me the addresses of such centers they closed two years before. Finally I reached the Janakpuri centre Delhi they took Rs. 120/- for repairing set and forword it for repairing and took Rs. 430/-
but the problem exits same and demanded Rs. 9000/- for rep[airing. I decided to get exchanged it through Flipcart They just valued it Rs.280/-. This is the current market value of this Product.
i bought this mobile when it was launch..best mobile indeed...very good performance till now...supporting most of new apps and updates,inspite of it is old,it is working very well
