Although Xperia L1 is named after Xperia L, but there is no similarity between the two phones. Also, the Xperia L1 is more slender and more stylish in its presentation. The smartphone features smooth rounded edges for ease of hold and has an almost edge-to-edge display.

The latter is expandable to up to 25GB via the micro SD card slot, which should satisfy the needs of even the biggest data holders out there. The dual-SIM Xperia L1 is fueled with a 2620mAh battery with Sony’s STAMINA mode for battery saving.
