optimus, 18 Jun 2013Battery sucks.. Lasts for avg 8 hrs max. Flash is self banned under even 45% of power. Except... moreI guess you should get it checked @ sony service centre, coz flash should work irrespective of battery level.
( Auto flash mode is nother exception, but again it doesnt depend upon battery level )
vijay, 18 Jun 2013hay i want to gift a phone to my mother is xperia l is a right choice or not plz replyGalaxy Grand, or Galaxy Win which has quad-core and 4.7 LCD. I think the Grand has better performance, the quad-core in Win is very modest, most dual core probably beat it.
The best would be if you could step it up and get Xperia SP, high performance and HD screen.
Bro.. don't waste your money in android smartphones... so much heating issue... you will get irritated when you were playing game or browsing internet and some call received and you had to stick the burning phone to your ear... If still you want to buy, search properly considering below parameters:
1. Battery must not be 3.8V type
2. Chipset must not be Dual Core Cortex A5.. heats up
3. Brand Other than Sony or LG
All the best
vijay, 18 Jun 2013hay i want to gift a phone to my mother is xperia l is a right choice or not plz replyI was in a similar situation recently, Xperia L was a candidate, but I was afraid of the battery. Also, finding flip cover, book cover or cases for Sony phones is virtually impossible, and ladies like covers and cases a lot.
Ended up buying the galaxy grand, also looked at S3 Mini but it was too small for her eyes (reading glass user). For myself I don't like Samsung anymore, already had one, but I am not forcing my brand preferences on other people, Grand has an ok battery and big display and huge selection in all kinds of cases, that matters more to her than me or you disliking touchwiz or cheap plastic.

Sendhizh, 15 Jun 2013Which is the best and compatible handsfee/headsets for this mobile ?You can buy Sony MDR-220LP which is nice stereo headphones compatible with Xperia L. And can be purchased from flipkart.I bought it from flipkart via cash on delivery.
Not sure why anyone would get this phone!? An old Xperia X10 is better and smaller :(

KT prime, 18 Jun 2013You are spending 16K and what do you expect ?? I phone 5 or S4 or Nexus 4 or Xperia Z??
W... morethanks a lot for your comment to that user KT..
i am really disappointed with the negative feedback of that guy..
I find my Xperia L superb..and i am really amazed with its performance with regards to its price..But he does not seem experiencing the same things..too bad..
When it comes to overall performance, you could buy this phone suiting your budget..It is not an excellent phone, but you will be happy with it..
Go to Sony Centre and try to feel it,play some games,browse the net,try to take pictures and record videos, and see it for yourself..As KTPrime said, the only downside is the "not-so-great" Camera..But like him,I can ignore that and be satisfied with what it can do..
I'm not paid by Sony,I'm just a "TRUE USER" experiencing the "TRUE" capability of the phone..
yashverdhan, 18 Jun 2013Xperia l users not giving true reviews about Xperia l --Xperia l is not very bad phone but wha... moreYou are spending 16K and what do you expect ?? I phone 5 or S4 or Nexus 4 or Xperia Z??
Whats so special about Galaxy advance , L7 ?
Yeah, and you did comment about galaxy s2 , dude it was launched for 25k , it dosent mean that you can compare it with any random 16-17k phone. nd yes it does come close to or kind of equal to Samsung galaxy s2 for its performance, thanks to its hardware. ( Snapdragon S4| Krait arch. | Adreno 305 to be more specific)
Whats wrong with the browsing experience of Xperia L ?
( dosent it load webpages?? or do you expect something more like webpages should dance or something?? )
Does Xperia L get that much heated that u can cook food on it?
Every smart phones does come up with its own issues, Xperia L does have a medicore Camera and not so great battery , but both those issues are adjustable. Dosent affect that much.
With a normal use its battery does stay for 1 Day and camera does produce recognizable images.
Im not saying Xperia L is the perfect smart phone out there nor im saying its the best, but its a pretty descent phone with some great performance that duly justifies its price tag.
At 17k u wont get all those features that u get in a 25-40k phone.
I'm not forcing anybody to buy this phone , i just gave my opinion after using it..
Only people found issues was with the Camera and the battery....rest was fine.
Samsung Galaxy S and L7 are nice phones but they do lack RAM and Processing speeds when compared to Xperia L.
And yes, Sony does pay us ( Xperia L users) Money for writing postive reviews here about the phone, and dude do you seriously own this phone ??? Coz every random day you find out new issues with this phone which none of us have.
jkfooty, 18 Jun 2013Very helpful, thanks alot mate. Thinking to buy this phone At the >moment< for sub 16k Price, Xperia l is the phone to go ahead with. ( In future better phones will come...ehh but at the moment this one stands out than many (L7 to be specific :p) at this price range.
As i posted earlier, i didnt find any issues except for the camera( I'm fine with it as i dont use phones camera to snap pics | Also would like to add Camera is not that worse that it produces crap images, u can check online for samples of it | GSM Arena has put some sample pics, u can check)
P.S : Just told from my experience of using this phone ( has been around 1 month)
Xperia l users not giving true reviews about Xperia l --Xperia l is not very bad phone but whatever I said in last post that is true-- if we spend 17-18k then why should we accept these lacks with phone --after Spending 17-18k if getting these issues with this phone-''then what's wrong with LG optimus l7 and galaxy s douse both phones r between 10-13k --'and then why Sony,s lovers loud Sony is greate manufacturer than other phone manufacturers;__-I also using this phone what special in this phone except Sony name;--every features r average or bad and nothing!!-''''?I have seen Xperia z no doubt z is awesome phone very good display -' but not good than all similar android phones-'
could u guys help me with the color . .? which looks gud white or black . .?

i am looking for a gud phone below rs 17000.....
i have got 2 optio... moreGo ahead with the Xperia L , its a good phone but it does sport a pretty Average camera and battery backup is not that good if you are a heavy user ( but for normal use its fine )
Performance is >awesome< , best for Playing Games in this Price Range.
Browsing, Call quality is also good , you wont find any Issues in that.
I'm a User & i didnt find any issues with it except for the Average Camera. Rest all is superfine.
In simple words, go ahead with Xperia L.
LG L7 aah......if u need a good camera then i'll prefer this phone.
If you are ready to sacrifice a bit of Camera quality ,then go ahead with Xperia L it wont disappoint you.
