Sony Xperia L2 review

 

E turned into L in Sony's smartphone lineup last year and now comes generation two - the Sony Xperia L2. A year later, the new entry-level model comes with a few hardware improvements and an aesthetic to match the current company trends.

Sony Xperia L2 Smartphone Review

 

CES novelty in review. Presented by Sony at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Sony Xperia L2 is currently the Japanese manufacturer's cheapest smartphone. The €249 (~$307; RRP) device, which has a fingerprint scanner and runs...

long battery life ; reliable fingerprint scanner ; large internal storage

slow processor ; slight tinny sound from speakers ; low resolution display

The positives of the Sony Xperia L2 include a long battery life, a relatively large 32 GB internal storage, a reliable fingerprint scanner and that it is well constructed. We would expect better value for money from a device released in 2018, as the...

Sony Xperia L2 Review

 

The Xperia L2 is launching for the retail price of $249.99, which puts it in the same category with low-tier devices, and well below the more shiny offerings like the Xperia XA2. Now let's take a look at it and see if it is worth getting one!

Solid build ; Fingerprint scanner works well ; Good day-to-day performance

Mediocre display ; Tinny speaker ; Heavier apps and games could be problematic

Sony Xperia L2 review: no, no, no!

 

After unboxing the Xperia L2 and spending a trial period with it, I'm ready to give a verdict on the new entry-level Sony smartphone. Is it an enticing device? Is it worth the price? Find out in our full review.

Long battery life ; Fast and clean Sony software ; USB Type-C port

Plastic material ; Noisy vibration motor ; Only HD display resolution ; MediaTek processor not good enough for price ; Slow and imprecise fingerprint scanner

My primary criticism of the smartphone is its excessive price. Entry-level smartphones like this can satisfy many users and perform basic functions without batting an eye, but the Sony Xperia L2 is priced like a mid-range smartphone so we have to...

Sony Xperia L2 review

 

Sony's solid budget phone fails to make an impact

Wide-angle selfie cam fits more in ; Surprising range of audio options ; Excellent battery life

Sub-par 720p display ; Mediocre performance ; Fingerprint scanner unreliable

The Sony Xperia L2 isn't a bad phone, but it comes up short against the competition in virtually every area, from its clunky plastic design to its sub-par display resolution and underwhelming performance.

Sony Xperia L2 Review: Is the L for ‘Loveable’?

 

Sony Mobile's first budget smartphone of 2018 is the Xperia L2, a £199 handset which marks an evolution in design. However, this already price range is dominated by the likes of Honor and Motorola. So can the Sony Xperia L2 do enough to conquer rivals...

Fingerprint sensor ; Excellent battery life ; Strong customisation

Design seems dated ; Beaten by rivals in many areas

The Xperia L2 faces some seriously stiff competition around the £200 price point, from the likes of Honor and Motorola. Thankfully Sony’s mobile is a solid all-round experience, boasting particularly strong battery life and some neat bonus features....

Sony Xperia L2

 

A decent device for cost-savvy users, but the Xperia L2 from Sony does little to stand out in a sea of mid-range phones.

Solid build quality; Good all-round camera; Well priced

Erratic battery life; Middling processor

At R3 500 the Xperia L2 is one of the cheaper options on the local mid-range market, ticking all the required boxes of such a device. For those wanting bang for their buck, this offering certainly gets the job done. If, however, you're on the lookout...
