The Sony Xperia L1 is a perfect handset for anyone looking for a good spec, mid-range phone.

It has a sleek design, it looks smart and feels comfortable in the hand.

The quad-core processor will allow you to complete any tasks throughout the day without trouble.


Android 7.0 is the latest version of the popular mobile operating system that is installed on this handset.

From the moment you switch the device on you have access to lots of great software features from Google and Sony.

Sign into a Google account you already have or create one in just a few moments and the capabilities of the L1 are further enhanced as your contacts, calendar appointments, applications and more become available to you.

Access the Google Play store for your favourite third-party applications and services.

Within 10 minutes you can be up and running. 

Sony also put on plenty of their own customizations that allow you to get more value from this 4G enabled handset.

With 16GB of internal storage most apps and media can be loaded right onto the internal memory, but if you need it the MicroSD card slot provides the possibility for, up to, another 256GB of storage space.

The MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM combine to keep things ticking along nicely.


4G and Wi-Fi are of course present, so you can be connected to the internet and go about your daily life. Be that for checking the weather, the news, the football scores, sharing snaps from your night out, organising your social life or managing emails and documents for work.

You need not be tied to a wall with the L1 as the 2620mAh battery will get most users through a working day. However should you need it, the phone supports Qnovo adaptive charging and MediaTek’s PumpExpress 2.0 which means, with the right power adapter, you can charge your L1 up quicker than you might expect.

USB type-c connectivity is a new addition to the L1 and offers a connector that is fully reversible. Therefore when connecting a charging cable or data cable, right way up or wrong way around the cable will connect.

Also included are Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and GPS.


With the 5.5” display on the Xperia L1, you have plenty of screen room to watch all of your favourite videos and display your images.

The 720p HD resolution offers a blend of screen quality and battery efficiency.

Lots of phones now have a 1080p HD display or better but they are known for drawing power. Unless you are into your media, for most of what we do on a phone, the 720p resolution is more than enough.

Gone are the thick and chunky borders that once framed a screen, the L1’s display is almost edgeless. The smooth rounded form has the screen almost slip away into the edge of the handset and ultimately helps not only the look but in hand comfort of this phone.

Just 8.7mm thick and 180g this is no heavy piece of tech to carry with you.


With a user-friendly 13MP camera at hand, you’re always ready to catch and share life as it happens. In bright, lifelike colours.

Always have a 5MP front camera at your disposal for your video calls or selfies. A very useful and easy to use camera.
