Description

An extension of the Sony Xperia Neo series, the Xperia Neo L is a mid-range smartphone filled with multiple clever features. Like the Xperia Neos preceding it, the phone comes in a bar shape. The device is run on the sophisticated and futuristic Android v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS and possesses a dynamic 1 GHz Qualcomm Scorpion processor. A 512 MB RAM warrants its ability to smoothly run apps on the phone.

The relatively large display is a 4-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen and provides a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. The scratch resistant screen provides a level of ruggedness to the device. The UI provided by Sony on the phone is Android’s very own Timescape which incorporates a degree of simplicity for the user.

There are two cameras on the Sony Xperia Neo L. The rear facing camera is a powerful 5 megapixel device which is accompanied by an LED flash so as to click pictures under minimal lighting. The camera allows the user to record video in 720p HD at 30 fps and includes features such as Auto Focus, Touch Focus and Geo-tagging which combine to make the picture-clicking and video-recording experience very enjoyable. The front-facing 0.3 megapixel secondary camera allows the user to carry out video calling easily.

Design

When designing this phone, the makers have paid close attention to aesthetics. This is seen in the phone's dimensions which are 61.1 x 121 x 12.2 mm. With a thickness of 12.2 mm, the device is extremely slender and comfortable to hold. Additionally, the phone weighs in at 131.5 g which makes it quite light in the hand. The Proximity sensor, which prevents the user from tapping unnecessary buttons when held close to the ear and the Ambient Light sensor, which changes the brightness of the display according to the surrounding environment, manage the display effectively.

 

Storage and Battery

The device comes with an internal memory of nominal 301 MB. However, it includes a 2 GB memory card within the device. The memory on the phone can be expanded to up to 32 GB using a micro SD card. The relatively high specifications of this device require an equally capable battery. Hence, the phone is powered by a 1460 mAh Li-Po battery which promises to provide up to 7 hours of talktime on 2G or 3G networks.

Connectivity and Features

The Sony Xperia Neo L is well equipped to keep you connected at home, work or on the move. It comes packed with GPRS and EDGE technology for data transfer over the 2G network. The device also comes with HSDPA and HSUPA technology for optimized data transfer over the 3G network. This Xperia Neo L is WiFi enabled to let you access the internet from a wireless network. The phone can be tethered to another device using the WiFi hotspot or through the micro USB port. This Sony Xperia Neo has GPS support in the form of A-GPS which enhances the ability to locate the user with the help of Google Maps. Files and documents may also be transferred using the Bluetooth functionality.

The phone promises to keep you entertained with the help of the inbuilt music player. The music experience is further enhanced with xLOUD Audio technology which improves the audio quality of the device. If that doesn’t satisfy the user’s entertainment needs, the phone comes with a video player as well.

Social networking on the Xperia Neo L becomes easier with the Facebook, Twitter and Skype apps that are bundled into the device. The business features on the phone include Document Viewer and Document Editor. These features allow the user to manage and edit office documents on the move. The Pushmail feature is for users who need to stay connected with their Email on the go.

Upsetting

To start with fantaastic services by flipkart. Got the phone delivered within 2 days..
Now the phone.. its ok.. the main problem is, it slags..
The button which would need repairing within a month or two, started giving me problem within the 4th day of my use.
The glossy finish looks great but it easily slips away from your hand not a great phone for rough-tough use..

Buy this phone at your own risk.

My in HAND REVIEW

Well, i encountered many CONS than Pros*,, bt i ll still go by the manner

Pros*- large screen,nice touch,decent battery back up, ICS out of the box,Good call quality

No zoom in of any sort. The viewing in daylight in not that good,at maximum brightness!!!
The hardware buttons ...

Really a very nice phone at this range.

> The neo L looks very similar to the Neo and Neo V in terms of design. But this time round, the device has a 4-inch display that also makes it heavier at 131.5gms. The phone is bulky in its build but is solid.
> Beneath the skin, the Xperia neo L features a 1500mAh battery.
> Overall, the neo L does have an attractive design but certain improvements would have been welcome.

Display:-
> The Xperia neo L comes with a 4-inch LED-backlit capacitive touch display. Images look crisp at 480x854 p...

DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE

Writing this review after using it for 10 months. Has 512 MB RAM but feels like 128 MB. Lagging every time. Only 1 GB of internal storage (380 MB user available). Shitty camera, no ZOOM. Games like even Temple Run 1 and Subway Surfers would lag and force close. Apps would take ages to open. Poor quality earphones.

Can't understand why does this phone even exist!!

Big piece of CRAP. Go for Xperia L instead.

Again, no ZOOM available.

Awesome look but not great in performance

First of all I want to say Fantastic and nice in look, handy phone (size not too big like canvas2 not to small xperia tipo) can be operated by one hand. When you unpack it you will fall in love with this phone.

Best in look, inbuilt hardware functionality
Good in business features, apps
Poor in Gaming, slightly in performance(not too good not too bad)

***Gamer people don't think to buy this phone.

Camera : Very good camera quality, recording quality also fantastic. but camera options are ...

I have been using this phone from the past one month...the only thing i dislike about the phone is that it doesn't have digital zoom for the camera but that can be overcome by download "Zoom Camera" from Google Play...

Best Phone In The Range

I'm going to compare Neo L with Samsung Gallaxy S Duos s7562, Xperia Miro, Xperia J.

Gallaxy Has Duel Sim. I dont think it is a good idea to use a android phone with a dual sim system because it increases the rate of uses power.

Neo L has 1Ghz Quall Scorpion CPU which is far way faster than that of galaxy s , miro & j.

Neo L uses adreno 205 as Graphics card, which is much better.


Neo L has 854*480 pixel with " 245 ppi " which gives us a great experience in browsing & picture viewing.
