It is always risky to give your phone to a service center. You never know how they handle it - you may get it back with some new problem or maybe even some scratches. And the concept of static elec. does not exist for them. Further, fixed batteries are there to make more money - you will end up paying lot more for service + battery (mostly at MRP). No question of using 3rd party batteries which can be much cheaper and sometimes better!
Add to this that you may be without a phone for few days, if they retain your phone for the purpose. Plus the hassle, money and time spent traveling to a service center.
Lastly your data and security could be at risk.
Try not to support phones with non-user removable batteries and internal memory. At least not unless the phone is significantly cheaper.
sSs™, 21 Feb 2014unfortunately for now it is not announced yet. there are no news that xperia L will get the 4.... moreIt is very likely that xperia L will get 4.4 update (though it is capable of running it with ease). But sony has already launched AOSP 4.4 for xperia L (which means you can get kitkat through rooting) but sony has promised 4.3 for xperia L and M.but it will take some more time.
Sony stands out for its camera and its music quality.. And believe me, i love this phone for both of them.. The phone is just running to my expectations an i hardly have anything to complain about.. Good phone in d pricelist, and a brand like Sony adds to its charm... Awesome phone..:) :) But wish it could get the Android Kitkat upgrade v4.4... :(. Please inform if it gets that... Thanks..
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2014Yes the speakers do tend to produce sound from the front only, only when u restart the speaker... moreThanks! but another way is to call any number you wish then turn on loudspeaker and end the call. the sound is then produced in normal way!

arjun, 21 Feb 2014this phone how much rs in the market after i buy upgrade to 4.2 is gud r nt pls sayI think in you country it's roughly around 13929.50RS. yes the update for 4.2 is good and smooth i didn't find any bugs on it, also no lag phone is very fast after the update. the only thing i noticed is when you try to unlock the phone you might see a square frame in the screen surrounding the background. but all in all 4.2 is a good update

arjum, 21 Feb 2014thank u very much one more thing when we watch movie how is colour production pls say i luv to... morecolor is good on pictures and videos, you can play any file type and video codec, including DivX and XviD but it won't play MKV files and videos using the AC3 audio support. HD videos play just fine.

with regards with GPS i haven't really tried it on xperia L yet bec i'm not using it. [ i don't really need it ] so i can't tell you if it's good or not. ^^
Deesee, 21 Feb 2014But what about the inbuilt battery of moto g..??
If it got damaged or got ny prob wid dat u h... morewell yes because only the service centre can remove and replace the battery when it got damaged, i don't think it's risky as long as there are service centre open in your area, they can fix it for you . but the thing is, when a phone lags/freezes normally we take out the battery and put it back in again and that will solve the problem in the case of moto G you can't do that, that would probably the downfall of the phone in exchange of good specs.
but also i use xperia SP as well which has non-removable battery too. in case it freezes there is a pinhole at the back that i press and it will restart, i don't know if moto G has that or not.
