The ultimate 2020 Review of Sony Xperia L4

The Sony Xperia L4 is a fairly new model, having been launched in mid-2020.
The overall quality of this smartphone is average; as it is very affordable, it can be a good choice just to save a little.

Main results

The Sony Xperia L4 arrived on the market with Android 9 and being still relatively new, it is not surprising that it has not yet received an update. Although it is 2 steps behind the last released, for safety and compatibility with apps and other devices, it is still fairly recent.
The 6.2″ screen with a resolution of 1680 x 720 pixels has an appearance in line with that of its competitors, but is very quick to react to commands.
The Sony Xperia L4 battery is standard: in our scenario of use, its 3580 mAh allow it to reach 31 hours, which is on average.
The 47.4 GB of actual available internal memory (64 GB declared) may be enough to store our data, if not, we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
It suffered some minor damages in the drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered rather robust.
Like most models in this price range, this phone is very powerful, so it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIM, two numbers, can work simultaneously) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.

Camera

Sony Xperia L4 has three rear cameras (the main one is 13 Mp) which allow you to get just enough quality photos, except in situations with little light where they are even poor.
This mobile phone has an 8 Mp front camera, which allows you to take poor quality photos, so it is not possible to get good selfies.

✔️ Pros

  • The screen quality is good
  • It is one of the most affordable models
  • You can insert two SIMs at the same time

❌ Cons

  • Its performances are below average
  • At the same price there are much better models
