Sony Xperia L3


Is The Sony Xperia L3  really only a budget phone when compared to its flagship big brothers who take all the limelight?  OK Lets keep it real here that the prices of flagship SmartPhones is going into another level, were the entry level flagship alone, is over £1000 and then the super advanced variant of the flagship is approaching $3000 effortlessly; in fact some flagship devices from top SmartPhone makers,  are commanding prices well-over $2500 as soon as they are dropped on the scene and this is becoming the norm.

Released 2019, Feb

Now, the sad part of the above paragraph?  Many SmartPhone users will NEVER be able to get that ultimate full-package flagship phone experience with all the bells and whistle, why?  Simple, the price tags are too high, enough to buy a decent car.

The thing is Sony wants all phone users who cannot afford top devices, to experience flagship capabilities by passing down certain aspects, abilities and hardware from their top line premium phones such as the Sony Xperia 1 into mid-range phones such as the Sony Xperia L3 so while the Xperia 1 is aimed at the ones without budgetary constraints with its lavish 4K screen however, Sony still aims at producing SmartPhone lineups that cover every possible price bracket.

Sony has released some L range Mobiles in the the past but , they took the L3 to a higher level but yet, it was still Sony's cheapest 2019 smartphone, possessing flagship attributes, hardware and abilities such as, sporting  Sony's latest design look of trendy tall cinematic dimensional screen setting, even though its aspect ratio is 18:9 and not 21:9, other features passed down from premium Sony handsets are side-mounted biometric fingerprint reader scanner.

You'll have to be reminded that the S X L3 is not a flagship phone, why?  because its not lite on features that reflects the unexpected cheap price of the phone that phone users would expect with a generously-sized 5.7in screen, a dual rear camera set-up all backed-up by an above-average fast MediaTek Helio P22 processor, paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.
