This phone should be available in stores and online in India in a few days for about 18,990
Hello GSMARENA Team,
Please give detailed hands on review of the phone now that it is available in the market.
sonystyle website says it has bravia2 on it... just sayin. it's a shame they can't be a little more aggressive and match specs with google nexus 4. AND keep their firmware up to date in a timely manner. I am most likely going to grab this phone, but only till google releases the nexus 5, or their motorola x, depending on specs. Sony has to stop relying on their name, and get serious in the cell game.
This is reply to the one who is saying nokia lumia 720is far better than sony xperia sp.please clear your data nokia lumia 720 has not gpt hd screen woth relity display means you did not see any pixelation in sony sony cpu is far much better than some of the quad core like samsung s3, gpu is also of highest grade adreno 320 which is found on high end devices, os is android jelly bean far much more convenient than windows 8 by look wise very good looking so nokia is no way near sony xperia sp, nokia lumia 720 and other window phone does not support device to device bluetooth
The quadrent benchmark of xperia sp =7500
Antutu benchmark =16668
Gl 3d benchmark 2.7 =18 fps in new benchmarking test (rex onscreen test)
Xperia L emerges as the best price-to-performance phone in the Indian market....
Newer Gen Snapdragon 400 8230 chipset..
1 GHZ Dual Core Krait far better than all quad-core cortex a5's
Adreno 305 GPU....

Viewing angel and color reproduction is very poor in xperia. Apart from that lumia 720 has better battery with lots of exclusive apps from nokia itself which are very useful.
Vincent Vega, 09 May 2013What? "Optimus UI 3.0 is better than Sony UI"..are you kidding?I just dont like Sony UX appdrawer and lack of customization

LG L9 is just another option I said.
As such Qualcomm MSM8230 is not Cortex A9 so no Full HD!
Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 can be clocked upto 1.5 Ghz and Cortex A9
Adreno 305 eats the battery and it's single channel with higher frequency while PowerVR SGX540 is dual channel and comparatively power efficient and it can do everything that Adreno 305 can do!
Sony is always better in camera.. where LG is behind
Xperia L is having 4.3" TFT LCD while LG is having 4.7" IPS LCD.
Optimus UI 3.0 is better than Sony UI
But Ultimately, it's your preference for what purpose you are buying the phone.
I think its price should 15k inr bcz it has the same spec like l620 besides ram and rear cam. So MAKE IT BELIVE AND THINK ABOUT IT.
