Sony Xperia TL (AT&T)

 

The Sony Xperia TL ($99.99) is what the Sony Xperia Ion should have been. And had it come out back in June, it would have been a contender for top Android smartphone on AT&T. Now it's just a good phone for a good price. There's a lot to like, from its...

Fast performance. Good camera. Nice display

Bloatware. A little heavy

The Xperia TL for AT&T brings Sony up to speed with a fast, reasonably priced smartphone that will please average users and James Bond aficionados alike.

Sony Xperia TL (AT&T)

 

The Sony Xperia TL delivers fast performance, long battery life, a sharp camera and handy NFC features for a good price.

Strong performance and graphics; Vivid display; Excellent battery life; Sharp 13-MP camera; Clever NFC features

Design somewhat bland; Weak audio; Sluggish upload speeds

Sony Xperia TL ( AT&T)

 

The new $99.99 Xperia TL is the phone I've been waiting for from Sony for quite a while. Frankly it's the handset the Xperia Ion should have been. Thanks to a swift 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and a camera that snaps high-quality images,...

Sony's new $99 Xperia TL has a swift processor, 4G LTE, long battery life, and a powerful camera.

The Sony Xperia TL is heavy, and its conservative looks don't pack much of a punch.

The Sony Xperia TL is a fantastic value and Sony's best U.S. smartphone yet.

Sony Xperia TL review: the company's second US flagship is much improved, but still imperfect

 

As Sony's second stab at the US mobile market, the Xperia TL arrives with a major corporate synergistic push: a 007 movie franchise tie-in. But an awkward distinction as the official Bond phone and a smattering of pre-loaded "Skyfall" multimedia...

Fast, reliable performance ; Fantastic 13-megapixel camera ; Attractively priced

720p display prone to washout ; Weak battery life

The Xperia TL is Sony's first true flagship for the US market. But despite its aggressive $99 on-contract pricing, the TL fails to overtake HTC's superior One X, casting it as a second-place budget option.

Sony Xperia TL Review

 

The name's TL, Xperia TL. Just as the secret agent made famous in the big screen, this “James Bond phone” from Sony surely comes off as being nonchalant with its attitude, since it's deceitfully packing some killer hardware under its façade. No doubt,...

Great balance of price & hardware ; Sturdy construction ; Snaps photos quickly

Very reflective display and poor viewing angles ; Muted call quality ; Physical buttons are too crowded

Part of being a world famous secret agent, James Bond will surely appreciate that he’s finally given a smartphone for his missions – as opposed to the dummy phones of yesterday, though, the Ericsson concept phone in Tomorrow Never Dies was an...

Sony Xperia TL Review

 

Sony made a gorgeous phone that seemingly has the potential to be the device that finally delivers its elusive home run hit. That potential is sadly wasted on a device that has just enough frustrations to be another link in a chain of disappointments....

Sony Xperia TL

 

If you've always wanted to own one of James Bond's gadgets, the Xperia TL can make that happen. The phone offers a beautiful design and powerful performance for a tiny price tag. The smartphone's connection to the Bond movie "Skyfall" burdens the phone...

The Xperia TL uses a 13MP rear-facing camera, which is able to take better pictures than any other cell phone we reviewed

The display has a very narrow viewing angle

As a budget smartphone, the Xperia TL offers great features and powerful processing.
