Before 2 years
Excellent camera quality
Great speed NO LAGS AT ALL
Idiotic unnecessary bugs
After 2 years :
Android stabilised.. No bugs.
Camera quality decreased lot. Not sharp images as before. Maybe because of scratches on lines or phone became old.
Phone freezes. No hangs at all.
However, its the best midrange fone at this price with a top brand.sony. Once u love it.u'll never stop lovin it.xl sound loud than z series and m
Call quality is just awesome.noise cancellation thanks lot.i am happy with stock rom.and not at all in desire or hope for latest version.
Front camera. U cant blame it after you buy it after already knowing it.
Battery fine. Stamina mode thanks very much efficenct.yes touch is sensitive.use sgs touch screen booster.
Storage is fine if u are in patience to frequently transfering apps,data to sdcard using es,deleteing - .thumbnails folder often. Keeping all possible apps default storage to sd. Clearing cache,resetting app prefernces,clear data for all unnecessary apps,not updating apps u dont use,disable auto update apps from Playstore.
Sony apps walkman. Movies,track id,perfectly clear,neo reader,sketch,sony music etc and small apps also awesome.
Great to find features of a high end fone in mid range one: nfc,screen mirroring,throw setting,playstation certified.
Can play 1080p vids smoothly on mx player pro.
Led notification light.love it.big and bright
Scratch resistant glass actually does its work.no scratches.
Observed that my xl actually drags the wifi signals stronger than other androids i used.
Curvy design and size comfratble and nice to look at.
Flash light.. Very brighter than i anyone i bet.the metal ring round the lens i think will be able to support small magnetic camera lens
Quick camera button.nice.
Hardware ofsony unbeatable. Software should be bug free and fast in updates.
However, if you are a developer or like experimenting with software it doesn't cooperate well.if rooted,random restarts,atleast for me.i no need but
Still some bugs should be resolved atleast.Please do it sony,no need of software updates.please fix bugs like
When u cut call when screen on. Proximity sensor doesn't off.
.thumbnails eating storage a lot
For all phones sony default camera prob : delay in 2 or 3 secs for capturing pic and also loading at bottom right corner
Etc are some.please fix
Anyways sony is the best. Love u

1) In internal storage ,DCIm folder might have occupied many GB of memory except photos.Move every photos and delete tat folder.
2)In settings ---> storage---> Internal-->Misc , Miscallenous storage would have estrongs or some thing like tat delete tat.

My phone's internal memory suddenly became 0.0b, can't access anything in internal memory, this includes photos, apps etc. When I connect phone via usb, I can see internal memory. I can see memory card files, but memory card became read only, that means I can't take photos, delete or add files in memory card. Do you know any solution? Thanks.
It says 1gb ram and 8gb internal. Isn't it 2gb ram and 4gb internal?
I've been using it for 2+yrs and it is good except for battery /heating issues. Though, i must say I used it too much. On an average, More than 12+ hours of hay day and coc each day, for about 8 months. I'd advise to go for cyanogenmod atleast after the first year. Only then you can use its fullest capacity, getting rid of bloatwares.
Amit, 30 Apr 2016How to root Xperia L, and install Cm12I dont know about cyanogenmod but you can root your xperia with app kingroot

mel, 11 Mar 2016I wished that Sony Xperia L can be upgradable to 4.3 android version or higher :)It is impossible !
This is one of the worst phone in the world,it's always irritating me it's showing 400 mb free but whenever I try to install a software then it will show a bloody message like not enough space,it's cheaper and cheater phone

Every time phone memory is showing full.It is because of temporary files are storing at 'DCIM' folder and 'Lost Dir' folder at phone memory.Now I am cleaning this folder with storage analyser software;minimum two to three times a day. Remaining everything is good.Is there any solution for it.I am using this for 2.5 Years.
Bhuiyan_CU, 23 Feb 2016battery isn't good enough...If your battery is not good, then you should reduce your display brightness, and uninstall unwanted apps thats always running in RAM...
It will improve your battery life...
Don't use apps like du booster,
Instead of that pls try apps cleaner or sd maid app...
And also use only sony charger, and charge your battery only if it get low...
