Short opinion about Xperia L after 6 months of usage:
Design and build quality:
Superb design with okayish build quality. Can't expect more in a lower mid range device.
Display: Viewing angles are decent and good pixel density for a midranger. You cannot see pixels unless you bring the device close to your eyes.
Im a moderate user. If i unplug it at 100% in the morning at around 7.30am, there will be around 12-18% charge left at around 9pm in the eve. Battery life is not that bad.
NO issues till now.. clear and adequately loud.
Camera and video:
8mp camera is not the best when compared to other 8mp in the same segment. But it gets the job done most of the times. VGA front sucks.
Video capture at 720p is good enough.
Multimedia: Excellent music player with some tweaking options for the music. Earphones provided wasnt good but anyways I got a skull candy :P . Speaker output is pretty loud to my liking.
video playing has no problems in playing upto 720p videos in default app. It couldnt handle 1080p due to hardware limitations.
Though its a dual core device with a GB ram, I didnt find any major stutters or hangs. The phone phone is fluid enough to please you apart for some occasional stutters..Adreno 305 could handle some HD games too. Overall the phone is a above average performer.
Default browser (chrome) exits sometimes while browsing.. after that particular app exits automatically, the phone stutters a little bit for about 10 secs. Other browsers didnt have any issues.
no problems with gps.
ISSUES I FACED AFTER BUYING:
1. TOUCH SENSITIVITY: I was annoyed by the sensitivity of the screen. When i use my tip of my fingers, It wont respond. I have to use the part below the finger tip to mae it work. Consulted the service center and they told its a common problem for xl. I dont know how far it is true. This issue is sometimes annoying.
2. AUTO RESTART: The 3rd day since i bought this phone, the phone restarted 2 times automatically. Then there was a software update. The problem was solved.
3. CAMERA NOT AVAILABLE!! Man i was shocked to see this.. After that i restarted my phone and the camera worked. I got this error only once. NOw its fine.
So i faced these 3 problems. The auto restart problem and camera problem were solved automatically. The only thing that i feel annoying sometimes is the touch sensitivity.
still a good phone to use on a daily basis..There are few phones in the same price range. Check them too before buying. This is my personal perception after using it for 6 months. Perceptions may vary person to person. Cheers!!
Simple opinion. This phone is really great on hands-on. I love the 8mp camera idea where it really does good on low light condition as it said in specs of this phone. About the performance, sometimes its get laggy when going to home screen. But anyway, this phone is really the good value of mid-ranged smartphone for anyone that want the best design and camera experience from a mid-range phone. Don't be stupid enough to complain about the camera suck or whatever because you are the one that "sucks" at using camera. Mine doing so well. Peace !
