News about Sony Xperia ZL

E3 2018 is happening right now from 12th June to 14th June and as always, gamers all around the world are staying up late nights (if you’re not in the USA) chasing up reports and coverage on all the upcoming games getting announced this year. Lucky for you, however, we’ve put together the five best trailers (in our opinion) announced so far from E3!

The Mobile World Congress (a.k.a MWC) 2018, one of the biggest events in the mobile industry has just recently ended last Friday in Barcelona. As we look back at the festivities, MWC this year felt a little underwhelming, probably because Samsung stole the show before the event even officially began with the launch of the Galaxy S9. Nevertheless, the show still had its fair share of highlights that is worth talking about. Hence, below are some of the most notable handsets that were seen last week.

Crisp, Bright, and Large Screen

The Xperia ZL boasts a 5-inch screen that is packed with many visually pleasing features. First off, it features a full HD screen (1080x1920) that packs a pixel density of 441 pixels-per-inch. Its TFT screen is enhanced by Sony’s Bravia Engine 2, giving its contrast and sharpness a good boost. When it comes to viewing angles, the Bravia Engine 2 is able to give the phone a decent performance and same goes for its Sunlight legibility. Despite being a 5-incher, the phone is surprisingly compact that it can easily fit into your pockets.

Sony has its own brand of image sensor which is known as the Sony Exmor. This feature has been outstanding in making the photos taken by Sony phones stand out, and this phone has inherited that greatness that the company is famed for. The phone’s camera features Superior Auto mode, giving users a hassle free point and shoot experience which instantly determines the appropriate shooting mode for the scenario. Its 13MP shooter will definitely not disappoint.

The phone runs on a Snapdragon S4 Pro which is equipped with a quad-core processor. Each core of its processor is clocked at 1.5 GHz, guaranteeing a fast processing speed. For a smooth user experience, it has a 2GB RAM that could hold a vast number of applications running at the same time. On the other hand, its graphics department is very promising, all thanks to its Andreno 320 GPU which is twice as fast as the regular graphics processing unit. Also, it allows users to have a stutter free user interface and web browsing.

The Sony Xperia ZL comes with a 2370 mAh battery, a capable enough battery to run any 5-inch Quad-core device for a day with light to moderate use. However, Sony has thrown in a power saving feature called the Stamina mode, which dramatically boosts the phone’s battery life especially when it’s in standby mode. You’ll never have to worry about going for a day with a single charge, all thanks to the phone’s reliable battery and energy saving feature.
