Review: Sony Xperia TL for AT&T

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  2  

WIth the Xperia TL, Sony comes close to delivering its best phone. Most of the TL's features perform consistently well, which is not something that can always be said of Sony's devices.

My biggest gripe is the hardware. It just doesn't work well for me and I found the TL frustrating and difficult to manage. You may not care about the buttons so much, nor have any problems with them. I did.

More importantly, though, the TL's screen looks great, the battery performs well, it hooks onto AT&T's network, and phone calls sound really good. The user interface is easily managed and the Bond thematic material is a bit of a bonus if you care about that sort of thing.

The camera does a really good job, and the option to use Sony's Music and Movies Unlimited services are nice features.

If you're a Sony fan, or a Bond fan, or are looking for something a bit off the beaten path, the Xperia TL is an interesting, if fitful, choice.
