But sony seams to have removed many better things as it had on ICS 4.0.4 version.
like it has very tricky facebook integration now removed the option of facebook from Xperia menu in settings , hidden certain setting i am really dissapointed about the optimization SONY did over official Jelly Bean.
Now as per your question the loudness is pretty decent but with Xloud Off its audio is quite inferior compared to S3 but also S3 has audio enhancement....and about SL its quite similar but as we know SL is still to get Jelly Bean we cant quite compare because ZL had quite a lot sound enhacements than Xperia SL..but at the end its a Great Allrounder

I Hope That You Are Happyand Satisfiedwith Ur Purchase
Just Recieved my Xperia ZL and to tell its gorgeous..the display is awesome ..and the most impressive part for me was the call quality it is excellent although GsmArena told its close to excellent...but its very loud and clear and that was with all enhancement off.
The speaker loudness is ok though...music player is above average but not best..and its sound quality is better that Xperia Z(no offence as Z is water resistant) but i wont buy a phone just for looks and water resistant feature as long as i cant hear what caller tells me other side of call(had a bad experience with SONY acro S worst call quality)

I checked The Testing Numbers But The Problem That Gsmarena Didnt Say Whethere This Numbers Are With Xloud On Or Off, i Tried Xloud And It Is Very worse It Damages The Sound Quality, You Can Read That Gsmarena Said That If U Turn Off Xloud You Will get worse Results. I Am Very Cautious Now About Sound Quality Bcz Of Previous Experience With A Water Proof Mobile.

It is marketed as the more compact, non waterproof, but still hard punching alternative to the Xperia Z. So, it's sound quality is pretty nice. And loud.
Edit: I just read your post more thoroughly and I see that you wanted comparison to other phones than the Z. I owned the Xperia SL, and I have not tested the ZL's sound, but testing results show it to be better than that my SL. Just looking at numbers.
Hi, does anyone find it weird using the front facing camera to take self pictures or video camera since it is at the bottom?
ive bought my xperia zl yesterday. i just would like to point out my observations after 1 day of use for those who are interested.
viewing angles: depending whether its a con or pro to you, it doesnt have the very best viewing angle but it only suffers contrast loss when viewed at an angle. No greenish tint or whatsoever at an angle (i understand that viewing angles is a very sensitive issue)
black levels: very good black levels but sonys launcher uses a lot of gray color. display a black wallpaper to verify it on your own.
light bleeding: theres a little light bleeding at the very botton of the screen when holding it on portrait. the light bleeding can only be seen if you look at the top.
brightness: the screen is very bright without sacrificing the contrast
white balance app: this is not to increase the saturation of the color. it only increases the saturation of the white balance you applied.
back cover: back cover has a little flex if you put pressure on it but still feels sturdy.
sim cover: it flushes properly with the back cover although it doesnt make the back seamless
hopefully i lined out the red flags of this phone for those who are still undecided.
i highly recommend this phone.
