I’ve always been a fan of Sony’s original smartphone designs so even if their new Xperia L1 offering is hardly a headliner, it’s still something worth looking into. The Sony Xperia L1 sports a 5.5 inch HD display and is driven by Mediatek’s 1.4GHz quad core MT6737T processor. You’re also getting 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage, with the option to expand via micro SD for an extra 256GB of storage.

While the specs won’t impress anyone, it does come with Android Nougat and offers a few interesting features, such as the Xperia Actions engine, which adapts the phone’s settings and functionality according to the environment. For example, it can automatically lower the display’s brightness and set itself to “Do not disturb”.

The Sony Xperia L1 is a looker, at least for me. Pricing hasn’t been revealed yet, but should start rolling out in late April to select markets in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, North America, and Latin America. If you’re interested, the Xperia L1 will be available in both black or white, with a pink version following soon after.

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
