Sony's $199 Xperia L1 goes on sale at Amazon and B&H Photo
Unfortunately, the handset doesn't strike us as particularly impressive for the price. It has a 5-inch 720p-resolution display and it's powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. These features aren't bad, but you can grab a Nexus 5X or look around for other sub-$199 phones, including older flagship devices. So Sony isn't being aggressive at all with the pricing.
In addition, the Xperia L1 offers a 13MP main camera, a 5MP front cam, a 2620mAh battery, USB-C connectivity, and runs Android Nougat. Not bad at all, but there's nothing mind-blowing, either. A fingerprint scanner or water resistance would have made the L1 significantly more compelling.
What do you think of the Xperia L1? Should Sony have tried a little harder to win over budget buyers?
