How can a 5.5 inch phone released in 2018 be 78 mm wide?? That's disgusting.
According to some german websites, the L2 will have an entry price of 249 euros. I think the L1 started at 200 euros but its price dropped pretty quick. At least they should have used a better cpu/gpu for the L2.
AnonD-664474, 09 Jan 2018Who told you that this phone is $200? I don't know yet, but as far as I know, Sony hasn't mad... moreI doubt the L2 will get any major updates. Maybe security patches. It will probably stay at Nougat. Sony has already excluded the L1 from the Oreo update list.

Anonymous, 15 Jan 2018oh that thick and large bezels. combined with FP in the back.
china phones look better than thatLet's think about practical experience over any trends/hyped.
The bezel-less is hard to hold even when taking selfie because there are no place to hold and it has only a tiny side frame can be grabs. But when a reasonable bezel is there then user can grab the bezel and take selfie worry free.
The back fingerprint sensor is for some reason the side fingerprint sensor can't be used for one region(USA). I can find atleast it is simple and centered and keep a distance from
the camera. However this will never change my mind, I like the side power on button, it is more practical and comfortable and fit when place the thumb on.

thura yangon, 14 Jan 2018I don't like Finger scanner.I also don't like back fingerprint sensor, at least the fingerprint sensor isn't close to the camera lens. It had a NFC in between them, this can avoid miss press the camera lens.

Sony just doesn't get it this kind of sub par models are going to be their undoing Sony should have just sold the xa 2 and the xa2 ultra @ reasonable prices to try regain the customers they have lost over the years missed opportunity again......
Bad CPU bad GPU and as a Sony budget phone its price wil be around 300-400.
I rather poke with xiaomi A1 for a much better price and specs or Moto G5S plus.
This phone was a dissaster even on a first drawing on paper long time before release.
Sony is been cheating its customers for a while now. Since from the break from Ericsson group Sony went into survival mode from innovation mode. It has given the consumers nearly nothing useful from the mobile point of view. In that regard Samsung did really well. It really focused on what an average consumer really needs.
For an example, Sony keeps on fooling its customers increasing the mega pixel count without really concentrating on the pixel size or aperture size or at least in the software image processing. Result is that
1. Very bad quality pictures both in day and night (Due to very small size compared to other phones and lesser aperture resulting in very high noise rate at low light areas.
2. very poor video quality when compared to other camera brands.
3. very worst image processing technology or at least we can say, very bad steps it is taking in image processing resulting in dull, fade out, over heating, grainy, stutter videos/images. Thought Sony boasts about G Camera, Exmore image processing, Believe me, those are the worst you can get.
Sony, hats off to your phone designs. Nothing can go as mindless as those.
For your information, Sony top official officially told, they never made phone since 2016 for consumers to buy. They are made just to keep their presence in the market and test their experimental prototypes (Of coarse it's lie that any one had made such statement but so much believable).
It's time for sony to give up all the other consumer market for growing companies of china and focus on playstation.
AnonD-617820, 09 Jan 2018game over Sony, no one will buy this phone for more than $200Who told you that this phone is $200?
I don't know yet, but as far as I know, Sony hasn't made any official statement about pricing just yet.
Let's say this will be $150. In comparison, the Galaxy J2 Pro 2018 has lower resolution screen, smaller battery, lower quality cameras, and unlike Samsung, the L2 will be treated with at least one OS upgrade.
I think the new l2 and xa2 and xa2 ultra are very heavy phones because of bigger battery and excellent materials and sony focused in battery life in these phones especially
As a huge/diehard Sony fan, unfortunately the design on this is pretty bad... And it's NOT because it's using the OmniBalance/Loop Design, but because it straight up looks weird - uneven bezels top and bottom and that weird-ish rounded back. I still think that the Xperia E5, as far as low-end/budget Sony phones go, is the best design Sony has put out. I guess Sony's going to be using their rumored Mirai design on their flagships first. then slowly-but-surely moving the design to lower-end price categories.
Still love Sony tho'
