An extension of the Sony Xperia Neo series, the Sony 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 touch screen and provides a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. The scratch resistant screen provides a level of ruggedness to the device. 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. Online shopping in India is very common and this phone is also available online.
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 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 and boasts affordable mobile price. Hence, the phone is powered by a 1460 mAh Li-Po battery which promises to provide up to 7 hours of talk time on 2G or 3G networks.
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.
