Sony Xperia SL – A Review


TNI Bureau: The new Sony Xperia SL is not that much exciting as the gadget can hardly be tagged as an up-gradation of its predecessor Xperia S that was released April this year. The device only boasts of a slightly faster Processor and an Android 4.O.

Sony Xperia SL runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). However, the device does not come with Jelly Bean update, which can be called as the major shortcoming of the Smartphone.

Sony Xperia SL comes pre-installed with OfficeSuite 6 which you can upgrade to support a couple of new features like printing documents, converting text documents to PDF and an in-built spell check.

Sony Xperia S had created a buzz for its 12 MP camera. However, in this new release, we are getting nothing extra for the snapper. Like its predecessor the camera can capture 3D shots via HDMI.
