I am pretty satisfied with this phone. Screen is very bright, I keep brightness at almost 0% when I am using it indoors. Games run pretty well, even heavier games without much heat. What I really like about it is the battery life. Despite a small battery for a big 5.5 inch screen, I get at least 6 hours of SoT with heavy use and wifi turned on. It could even get better with stamina/ultra stamina mode turned on. Speaker is very loud when you turn on 'xloud' in the sound settings. You can even move apps to sd card in the memory settings.
I bought this phone because I wanted a phone with a big screen. I had a 5 inch phone before. The screen has great quality despite being only 720p at 5.5 inches. Great for gaming and watching videos. Received couple of updates in the last months. Phone does not heat much after playing games for extensive time.
After 4 months of use he started to restart automatically, looking on internet I saw that I am not the only one with this problem, I don't know what is the problem.

Amine, 22 Nov 2017I have the same problem. Very disappointing from sonyIt does get very hot front and back. If that is normal though it's a pretty good phone for the price. If I play online poker though, really have to take breaks, feels like it's going to start melting lol
The internal memory in my Sony xperia l1 is registered as 32GB but the phone memery is already full ,help resetting it.
7 hours browsing Internet and watching YouTube. That is some good endurance. But I'm keeping it to low brightness otherwise it goes crazy on battery. I can not see clearly on sunlight, even on maximum brightness. This is really just good for basement dweller like myself who never has to show off and take selfies.
i love this phone,much better than my lenovo o70 which i bought in more expensive price,no probs at all,better pix,vid,fast net,im not a online game addict so i never experience my phone getting hot as many people had say.for a semi high end phone and low price range, this one is the best
Sameera, 04 Dec 2017Its internet is really slow. Is there any option or can someone help me to solve this?Never had a problem with wifi on my Xperia L1. Maybe your wifi network is faulty.
Its internet is really slow.
Is there any option or can someone help me to solve this?
I bought the xperia l1 after having bad experience with the nokia 3. After a few days of using the xperia l1, all I can say is that the xperia l1 is much better than the nokia 3 if anyone plans to buy one of those two. The big 5.5 screen is great for watching videos and playing games. Despite being only 720p it's sharp enough. Display reaction is very good. Display is very bright, I keep it at almost 0% when indoors. Daily usage and gaming performance is very good. Phone gets a little bit warm after playing heavy games for a long time but cools down fast when you quit playing. However I suffered no crashes. Gps is fast and accurate. Wifi and network signal ranges are good. Battery life is good and gets better after every charging cycle. 5.5 hours of SoT is definitely doable without stamina mode. The camera takes good photos/videos, much better than nokia 3's camera. I received the 6th November 17 security patch after starting the device. The phone is pretty big but I can still use it with one hand due to the grippy back. I returned the xperia l1 because I want to get the dual-sim variant.

Bought sony L1 few days ago, got it for £79.99 in black Friday deal. Really am impressed with it. I prefer it to the Galaxy S8 that l had, great 5.5" screen great camera, isn't anything that l can say l dislike about it.
