Congrats all around Sony. You are shining pretty bright in 2013. Despite with all the Sony haters you guys are doing extremely well. Keep it up. That being said the design of the Xperia L is very nice and a pretty good for an entry level smartphone.
It seems like Xperia L camera is better performer than Xperia SP camera, when compared with the photo comparison tool.
worse phone ever for that price must have gorilla glass for display , look lumia 720 better os, better display, better quality, better design but lumia 720 is not have file manager but windows 8 still awesome multitasking, not like androids phones ,, ;
this phone has POOR DISPLAY and POOR BATTERY
poor video quality
No Mobile BRAVIA engine
Sub-par viewing angles
Rather big and heavy for its display size
ONLY 39hours of endurance time...
Only 4;44hours of video playback...

4X HD was on ICS at that time not JB.
The Xperia L have almost the same file size as the Xperia Z on the photos from the camera... That can only mean that the XZ photos are compressed to crap!!
For the price it's ok viva la SONY
It's a very great phone! Look, it even tops LG Optimus 4X HD in one of the performance tests and comes very close to Xperia V in another... It's almost flasgship performance.
It's a shame that the Sony icons, mainly the bubble ones, are awful. And they still didn't implement the Jelly Bean way of taking things out of the way when you're adding new item to the home sccren (behavior present in HTC Sense since Gingerbread BTW).
Edit: you mention One S might not receive software updates, that's not true as HTC said Sense 5 is coming for it.
I believe these disadvantages shouldn't be considered as this is a mid-range device and already offering more from its limits.
