Not much has changed since Sony stood on its own after years of partnership with Ericson in making mobile devices; however, the company has continued relentlessly to make decent smart phones that are worth including on your handset’s shortlist. Sony’s latest addition to the Xperia series, the L C2105/2104 is a good example, we don’t expect this handset to topple the likes of galaxy s4 from the top of the table – but it has its own strongholds you’d love. It’s the kind of phone you’d buy if a larger display is of essence, the Xperia L C2105/2104 has a 4.3 inch capacitive touch screen packed with a decent 854×480 pixels screen resolution. We’ve got phones with bigger panels but a 4.3inch screen should do just fine – and at that resolution translating to an awesome 228 pixels per inch, scrolling through your photo gallery or browsing web pages should be a breeze.
Underneath is a 1GHz dual-core processor – we don’t expect any adjustments on our benchmarks as the latest galaxy s4 has moved the bar far beyond what you’ll get on this phone. Galaxy s4 has four of those dual-cores (8 cores processor to be precise); however, it’s still man-enough to run those android apps without any noticeable lags. Beyond a 4.3inch display, not much can be said about the front panel, you’ll obviously notice Sony’s typical logo at the top close to the ear-piece and 3 capacitive buttons below. Since Sony Xperia L C2105/2104 runs on Google’s latest version of android operating system – v4.1 Jelly Bean, you’ll get the usual 5 home screen feature and typical android icons with minimal bloat ware from Sony. The interface is typical to that of other Sony’s products such as tablets making it easier to adjust for non Sony starters. On the back-side is an impressive 8.0Megapixels primary snapper that’s surrounded by a protective highlighted camera ring and an LED flash coming in close on the right.
Sony Xperia L C2105/2104 is sleek and elegantly designed measuring 128.7x65x9.7 mm, the power button on top is amazingly curved from aluminum and the illuminated alerts can’t be any better. The internal storage is capped at 8GB but presence of a MicroSD card opens a lee-way to expand up to 32GB. With an 8.0 megapixel camera, the handset can take decent shots at the same time record 720p HD quality videos, other video and camera features include; 4x digital zoom capability, face and smile detection, HDR for both picture and film. Pre-loaded apps include – Google Play, Google voice search, Google maps for mobile and Google chrome browser.
