Sony Xperia Neo L Review


The Neo L made an appearance quite a few months back along with Sony's Nxt series. This phone is a successor to the Neo V and it sports an identical design, though the major improvements include a larger display and Ice Cream Sandwich. However, at a...

Even though few of the other similar (and cheaper) priced Xperias are dual core ones, they offer little more in the real world than this one. We put the Neo L through a range of synthetic benchmarks and they can be seen below. We’ve compared the phone...

Sony Xperia neo L review: Blast from the past


The Sony Xperia neo L is trying to break into an already well-populated market of affordable smartphones that give you a loud bang for your buck. It's a hotly contested game, but the neo L doesn't come unprepared. It has Sony's screen and camera...

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 4" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels) ; Android OS v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich ; 1 GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU, 512...

Display has poor viewing angles ; Very limited video codec support ; No HDMI port as on the older neo models ; No FM radio as on the older neo models ; No hardware camera shutter key as on the older neo models ; Memory card slot under the battery

The Sony Xperia neo L is a decent phone (though the build quality fails to impress ) that showed up late to the party. It's clearly an old design from the Sony Ericsson era - and those phones were a bit behind the times to begin with.

Sony Xperia neo L Review


The Sony Xperia neo L is the latest Android handset by the Japanese phone maker and it tries to strike the right balance between price and functionality…

Comes with ICS on board ; Spacious screen, with high pixel density for its class

Stutters occasionally ; Plasticky, very cheap feel ; Screen lacks oleophobic coating, looks like a mess after a while

The Sony Xperia neo L is an interesting handset that tries to bring a 4-inch screen for a relatively affordable price tag. The spacious display with Bravia technology for punchier colors despite our criticism towards it is one of its assets, especially...

Sony Xperia Neo L Review


I can definitely say that the Sony Xperia L is a good smartphone that can get things donne. Performance wise, it works really well. I did expect some lags but didn't encounter anything noticeable. Even without the Bravia Engine the IPS display will...

Sony Xperia neo L: Review - The Times of India


In an already flooded Android market, the question remains whether Sony Xperia neo L will stand out at a price of Rs 18,499, especially when HTC One V is available at Rs 18,599...

Sony Xperia neo L smartphone

Overall, Xperia neo L is not a great phone and even though its native OS is ICS, it still doesn't make the cut. For a price tag of Rs 18,499, it's advisable that you look for a device that offers better value proposition before making the final pick....
