Sony XPERIA ZL Review

Sony XPERIA ZL Review

With the Sony XPERIA ZL, the company took a double-tiered approach to a hero smartphone release - unlike what Samsung and HTC have done with their HTC One and GALAXY S 4, Sony has created a machine that's got the same innards as the XPERIA Z, but with a body that's almost like an alternate reality iteration. Here with the XPERIA ZL, Sony has taken the display, the software, the processor, and the camera technology from the XPERIA Z, putting it in a body that's both more rugged and thinner than the hero.
