Sony Xperia ZL

Last updated: Jan 2nd, 2013.

The Sony Xperia ZL comes as a smaller variant of the Xperia Z. The odd thing is it has near identical specs to its bigger brother. Specs include a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 5.0-inch 1080p screen. It runs Android 4.1.2 (4.2 update coming) and sports a very powerful 13 MP camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera, both able to shoot 1080p video at 30 fps.
