The black Xperia L C2104 8GB Smartphone from Sony features an 8-megapixel rear camera with an Exmor RS sensor for capturing high quality photos. The Xperia L also supports High Dynamic Range (HDR), which captures the same image in different exposure levels and then fuses them together, resulting in a picture with natural colors. With support for GSM and HSPA+ cellular networks, the Xperia L also supports Bluetooth wireless technology and Wi-Fi networks for added connectivity.

The Xperia L also features One-touch functions from Sony with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. One-touch sharing allows you to share media files with another NFC-enabled smartphone, tablet, or laptop by simply tapping the devices together. One-touch mirroring allows you to view photos and videos on your NFC-enabled Sony BRAVIA HDTV. To activate one-touch mirroring, simply tap your Xperia L to the BRAVIA remote. One-touch listening lets you play music wirelessly to Bluetooth speakers while one-touch backup stores all your important information on the Sony Personal Content Station (sold separately).

With a slim, lightweight design, the Xperia L also features an aluminum power button, illuminated alerts, and a highlighted camera ring for added style and convenience. The 4.3" display is also a capacitive touchscreen. Since the screen relies on multi-touch gestures, the screen is scratch-resistant. The 4.3" display has a 16:9 aspect ratio and an 854 x 480 native resolution, resulting in 227 pixels per inch. The screen can also display up to 16.7 million colors.

The Xperia L has a dual-core 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and 1GB of RAM for fast, reliable performance. The Xperia L also has 8GB of internal storage, but it can also be expanded up to 32GB, thanks to the microSD media card slot.

The Xperia L runs on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, which allows for full home screen customization, custom widgets, drag-and-drop controls, and access to thousands of apps and media in the Google Play Store.

The 8-megapixel rear camera features the Sony Exmor RS for mobile image sensor, which is an evolution of Sony's image sensor technology. The Sony Exmor RS is a CMOS image sensor that adopts a unique stacked structure. This structure layers the pixel section, which contains formations of back-illuminated pixels over the chip affixed with mounted circuits for signal processing. This allows for more surface area of the sensor to be dedicated to gathering light, resulting in lower noise and better low light capability. In addition to the higher image quality and better functionality, the use of a stacked structure has helped Sony to achieve a more compact size for the camera.

With a 4x digital zoom, the Sony Xperia L utilizes High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging technology in order to capture clear photos against a strong backlight. With HDR, the Sony Xperia L captures the same image at different exposure levels and layers them to create one optimized photo. A dedicated tactile camera button is located on the Sony Xperia L so you can take a picture even from the lock screen, thanks to the fast-capture feature. The Sony Xperia L also has a front-facing camera for video chatting. Other features include:

  • auto-focus
  • face detection

Wireless Communication
The Sony Xperia L is designed to work on select GSM networks and is 3.5G HSPA+ capable. HSPA+ is a cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds much faster than standard 3G; in some cases, HSPA+ comes close to 4G LTE speeds, but is more widely available than LTE because it uses 3G networks. With an HSPA+ connection, this phone should have no problem streaming video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high speed data connection. The phone is also backwards compatible with 2G data networks for instances when you can't get an HSPA+ signal. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Please note that the Sony Xperia L is not compatible with all cellular networks. Please make sure your provider uses a frequency or band that this phone supports. You can check which bands this phone works with within the Specifications.
