This Jelly Bean-powered smartphone runs on a 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8230 dual-core processor and hosts 8GB of internal memory that’s expandable up to 32GB via microSD. The star of this model is its 8-megapixel camera that uses Sony’s Exmor RS for mobile sensor technology that enables users to take sharp photos with rich colors and stunning clarity. Its High Dynamic Range (HDR) for photos and videos ensures that subjects are captured with utmost clarity even when placed against a strong backlight. For on-the-fly shooting, there’s a dedicated button on the body of the Xperia L that launches the camera even from a locked screen. Aside from a 4.3-inch FWVGA 854 x 480-pixel screen, you can also enjoy the vivid colors of your photos on a larger space as the device’s NFC capabilities let you port images to a compatible TV screen.
