Sony Xperia SL review: The NXT one

15 October 2012
A refresh, instead of a proper upgrade. A replacement model rather than a successor. Is the Sony Xperia SL aiming too low? Many will probably say so, but you can't blame Sony for trying to extend the life of a pretty solid smartphone and one...

Yes it can

I am also quite dissapointed with the review. There is the battery test which was omitted. Also in the benchmarks they did not include the vanilla Xperia S and former flagship. That beats the purpose because naturally the whole reason this phone came out was cause of Xperia S. And the people who are likely to buy this phone are the same who want to get there hands on Xperia S but don't want to add an extra hundred quid for the T. Xperia S is the defacto and the reason this phone came out so why can't we see the SL's improvements over the S as a result of the faster CPU. Quite silly.

based on the benchmarks this phone is way behind the Android phones in the market

Guest, 16 Oct 2012Galaxy beam and this one cost the same. I'll go for the HD display.Im getting the acro s. Same camera and dame display plus card slot and waterproof and survives being run over by a car. And if it didnt survive you could salvage your files from the micro sd card. Cardslot is immensely important, and the lack of it is the only reason why Xperia S didnt sell better, it was a capable and cheap HD phone at the right time with one shortcoming that tipped the scale to its disfavor
