Basics About Sony Xperia ZL

The good thing about Sony Xperia ZL is that, it has got a thin body along with a big and bright screen. The processing speed of the smartphone is simply impressive, it offers great call quality and the camera is simply mind blowing as well.

As compared to other handsets available in the market, Sony Xperia ZL is quite expensive. The phone doesn’t offer good battery life and the camera is sluggish too.

All in all, this is a good handset that you can own as it takes great pictures and the call quality is amazing too. However, all this comes for a price that is quite expensive as compared other competitors available in the market.


The overall body design of Sony Xperia ZL is really amazing. It has got a thin black colored body that is very easy to handle. Sony has definitely put some hard efforts and a lot of work to make the design of this smartphone look good. The screen quality is amazing too. One will definitely fall in love with this device upon using it for the first time.

On the right side, there is a thin volume rocker available so you can adjust the audio volume while playing music or during a call. The power key and dedicated shutter buttons are also available on the same side. The circular power key has been placed in the center of the right side in this smartphone by Sony. It is easy to reach that power button with your thumb while you are holding the phone but it would have been better to place it a little upper than that because you can often press the button accidently due to easy reach. The Micro-USB port is on the left side of the phone and on the top side, there is 3.5mm headphone jack as well. One interesting thing that you will find in Sony Xperia ZL is its front camera that sits just below the screen. This unique styling makes Xperia ZL a good choice for smartphone enthusiasts.


ZL offers a full HD resolution 1920×1080 pixels screen. The screen size if 5 inches that shows a lot of details to the viewer. I noticed that the colors of on the screen are quite vibrant and the images are very sharp as well. The screen of Xperia ZL surely looks great. However, if you will review the screen from different angles, you will not be able to see as much details as you were seeing from front side.


The phone contains a 1.5GHz quad-core processor backed by 2GB RAM. The internal memory of the smartphone is 16GB and it offers many other great features too. Price may be an issue for most of the people but overall, this is one amazing smartphone available in the market. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, and we get a commission on purchases made through our links.
