Do you want to have a phone with a fast processor and 1080p display? Yeah, the Sony Xperia Z right? But can’t afford one? Well. Too bad for you. But don’t worry there’s an alternative for that. And yes, it is Sony and it still has a Z on it. Since this one is cheaper than the flagship, there are things that you will miss from the Sony Xperia Z. Like the IP55 and IP57 certification. That’s the water proof and dust proof certification. There are a bit of design changes too. The back of the Sony Xperia ZL isn’t made up of glass. The Sony Xperia ZL sports a plastic back and the Xperia ZL is a bit thicker than the Sony Xperia Z. Oh and the placement of the front facing camera is a bit awkward just like the Nokia N9. It is place below the screen. You still have the 5.0″ display with 1080p resolution. It is not clear whether the device uses a Dragontrail glass or a Gorilla Glass but I’m pretty sure that both glass is pretty strong and solid. There’s the 13 Megapixel Camera and the Quad-Core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon Krait processor inside. Oh and the battery is a bit larger at 2370mAh compared to 2330mAh of the Z. But I doubt you’ll notice the difference. Check out the specifications after the break.
If you don’t have the bucks then I suggest getting this one over the other. Why? Do you really need a waterproof and dustproof smartphone? Do you always text or call when you’re in the shower? I don’t think so. Well, some of you might need those features especially those who are into adventures and sports like swimming. The price is still pretty hefty though.
