Next episode please

Delve into a world of great entertainment on the L3’s 5.7-inch HD+ screen. We’re talking detail so vivid and colours so vibrant that you won’t want to look away for a second (careful you don’t miss your stop though).

Made of the strong stuff

No drama if you drop your phone. Corning Gorilla Glass 5 has got you. The Sony Xperia L3 can survive 1.6-metre, shoulder-height drops onto hard, rough surfaces up to 80% of the time. It’s as tough as old boots.


Double the clarity

Capture photos with beautiful blurred backgrounds on the 13MP + 2MP dual lens camera. Whether you’re snapping pals at a picnic or an adorable pooch – get ready to set social media alight.


Big up your selfie

Are you always in the mood for a selfie? With an 2MP camera around the front, you’ll be able to snap, pose and pout to your heart’s content.


Under the hood

Android 8.1 on board

Smarter, faster, more powerful and sweeter than ever. The world’s favourite cookie is your new favourite Android operating system. Crack on with your favourite tasks faster, minimise background activity and do two things at once with picture-in-picture.  


Maximise your memory

There’s 32GB of internal storage, which should be enough for all of your favourite songs, videos and photos. But if you want even more, you can supersize up to 512GB with a microSD card.

Sony Xperia L3 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from BE CAREFUL buying this bundle! The phone is as expected..HOWEVER, We purchased this bundle on the 2nd of December, and kept the playstation for my daughters birthday on the 4th Jan. We came to use it on the 4th and the power button was faulty and the console doesn't turn on. We rang customer services and we were advised by Stacey to go into our local store and they would replace it for us. Visiting the local store, they told us its not within 28 days (its 39 days now) so we have to contact Sony. Brand new console sealed in box until the 4th and it doesn't work. Now it has to be repaired by sony, which will take weeks. My daughter is beyond gutted, ruined birthday. Oh, not to mention, that the packaging it came in, had previously been sent to another customer, and it must have been returned then sent to us. It's not even brand new, we suspect. Awful experience. I'd recommend getting the phones with vouchers for shops and buying the console yourselves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant phone. Brilliant price Bought this phone last week, and am really glad I did. So far no problems and really impressed with the phone as a whole. The camera is fantastic, great memory, lovely clear great touch screen, quick charge and brilliant battery life, is great for watching videos ect, and so far apps run great even with several open. Looks great too and great size. For the price paid as a pay as you go phone, it certainly rivals phones that would cost double on pay as you go. Best phone so far that I have had in recent times. I wasn't sure whether to stick with Sony or go back and give Samsung another try. As I have never used an apple phone and have no want to change from android. I have always preferred Samsung and recently tried Sony. Am happy I stuck with Sony here. Definitely a fantastic smartphone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEtter than any smartphone i have used I am not a big phone person and was struggling with my J3 handset so bought this one after member of staff recommended. I have never had a Sony Mobile phone before and the carnera is really good and I can have Facebook and WhatsApp to send photos to my family on which I struggled with on last one. I am happy with the price I paid and it is this the best phone for me. It has really long battery too wich is nice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Had this a week or so now and have been really impressed. The screen is really nice, and the camera is much better than I expected for the price, really clear and fast. The bokeh mode makes for nice artistic shots! Battery seems to last forever and its snappy to use. The fingerprint scanner is nice to have, and it's actually quite well placed on the side instead of the back.
