Design and display

High definition quality

Comfortable grip

The smartphone is much more than just a good-looking device. It has smooth, rounded edges, creating a very comfortable user experience.

 

Camera

See more in the everyday

The Xperia L1’s 13MP camera is really easy to use and makes sure you’re always ready to capture the moment.  

Super selfies

Put yourself in the frame with the 5MP front-facing camera, and enjoy video chats with friends and family with apps like Skype available to download from the Google Play Store.

 

Under the hood

Smart cleaner

Sony has developed a clever app that makes sure its smartphone always run smoothly. Smart Cleaner guarantees optimum speed, by fully closing down the apps you don’t regularly use.

Sony Xperia L1 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slow af I bought this phone almost a year ago, and it was fine for a while. Exceeded my expectations. But can someone explain to me why I've got 0 storage space left? It's constantly crashing on me, and restarting at the most random points. Not to mention the size is completely unnecessary, so it's just a bad phone in general.
