2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 4 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Looks pretty decent - follows Sony's familiar styling principles - the stark rectangle on the front, and the softly rounded frame
  • The curved back allows the device to rest better in your palm
  • Good fingerprint scanner on the back - does its job plenty fast
  • The design is nice, but the thick bezels are a little old-school for 2018

Display

  • The screen's brightness, and sunlight legibility could have been better

Software

  • Sony's UI is a light reskin of Android with no extreme amount of added features or background processes to bog the device down - which is always good to see

Performance

  • Decent day-to-day performance - powered by a MediaTek 6737T, and 3 GB of RAM - things like chatting, browsing are seamless, though the phone will struggle with heavy games

Camera

  • A quick double-press on the power button acts as a camera shortcut
  • Decent rear camera - colors are balanced and fairly accurate - daylight photography is not bad
  • Decent 120-degree wide-angle selfie camera - does a good job when it comes to details

Audio

  • Decent loudspeaker

Battery

  • Good battery life - will last the day with moderate use
  • No fast charging support

More

  • The Xperia L2 sports a modern USB Type-C port, which is nice to see on a budget device
  • On the whole, the Xperia L2 is a decent phone in isolation, but it faces tough competition from the likes of the Motorola Moto G5S Plus which has a metal body, a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chip under the hood, and even slightly battery life
