Sony Xperia L3 review

11 June 2019
Sony launched four smartphones at the last MWC in Barcelona, but it was easy to miss the cheapest of the quartet - the Xperia L3. The Xperia 1 had the 4K buzzword, the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus with 21:9 wide screens retired the XA midranges, and then came the L3's fifteen seconds of fame. Well, today we are giving it way more than that.

Anonymous, 13 Jun 2019Hey sony, you know what's missing? A 5,0", Full HD, 21:9, SD 710... moreSo true 18:9 or 21:9 aspect ratio screen squeezed in 4 to 4.5 inch.... With atleast new mediatek p90 or Snapdragon atleast 660 AI which is important today.single 8mp camera would be fine on rear and 2 mp selfie also will do. Make it 9mm, 160/180 gms try to put 3000mha battery. And no ports for headphones or charging port. Only wierless charging. Compact size charging Pad to be included with box.

Who uses keyboard after Google assistant.

Anonymous, 12 Jun 2019There is absolutely no use of bezels. I play PUBG and other game... morewell... Bezel in my opinion isn't just for gaming or movies, there's way more use than that for a decent sized bezels. I'm talking about limiting as little as possible any object (including your own fingers) to cover the screen, in any situation. Homescreen, apps, games, gallery, browser.

Imagine using any device by looking at the display. How much obstacle can you tolerate blocking your view to see the content displayed on the screen ?

Sorry for the late reply, didn't noticed.

Sar values of redmi note 7 are 0.591W/kg(head) and 1.274(body) While sar value of sony xperia l3 are 0.6W/kg(head) and 1.33W/kg(body)
This means that sar value is an advantage for xiaomi !!

Why don't you compare iphone xr to them it's the cheapest iphone? That's because we should compare phones with the same price. This is why sony l3 should be compared to redmi note 7

Note 7 is not low end.

Redmi 7 has better cpu (SD(632) but lacks the NFC, GG5, USB C.
Things all phones shoud have in 2019.
Also basic version is 2 + 16.

I choose weaker cpu but having those things than better cpu without them.

Most of Sony and Samsung phones have it below 0.6 while many Xiaomi phones are above 1.00. Xperia XZ3 has 0,14.

Phones like this are the reason why Sony is close to extinction in the mobile market. and from the way to reacted to the advancements in tech as well as value, they deserve it.

note 7 has type c with support for 18 watt fast charge which comes in box.
NFC is not a con for the target market, its like saying that l3 does not have china specific features...
do You even know what SAR means?
What is tangible difference between Bluetooth 5 and Bluetooth 5? asking because gsma shows redmi note 7 as having Bluetooth 5....

Hey sony, you know what's missing? A 5,0", Full HD, 21:9, SD 710, Bezelless (like Xperia 1 and 10), 6GB/6GB with a great dual camera! Many people are waiting for a new compact phone with decent (not high end!) specs. The Price? Doesn't matter at all. Give us a compact and you will (at least in germany) will again have lots of customers. You know who is thinking about a 4,7" phone? Apple...and those people will defo buy into them switching from anroid, just beause of size/camera quality....
