Although they have not officially presented it within the framework of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Sony also bets on the low-end or entry range among its terminals. A cheaper option to have the technology of the Japanese brand, as well as its design and its philosophy when creating terminals. Its latest bet in this market is the Sony Xperia L3 , which stands out for having a double camera and a battery that, for its data sheet, offers more than enough autonomy.
It has a large 5.7-inch screen , although regardless of notch or notch and the full frontal use of the terminal. What is not forgotten is to integrate a dual camera system to improve the bokeh or portrait effect, with a 13 megapixel lens as the main camera and a 2 megapixel lens to measure depth and achieve the ideal blur. But it's its 3,300 mAh battery that stands out above the rest. And is that not even the mid-range and high-end terminals such as the Xperia 1 or the Xperia 10 come close to this amount of milliamp hours. This is the Sony Xperia L3.

Simple design and widescreen display
It is clear that panoramic screens are already present in all ranges of terminals. In this Sony Xperia L3 we find a 5.7-inch LCD panel that shows that it is a low-end mobile in its HD + resolution . Of course, it has a good size to consume video content comfortably, although regardless of fashions such as notches and the all screen. By the way, this panel is protected against scratches and breakage with fifth generation Corning Gorilla Glass technology.
Regarding the design, we find a simple and elegant mobile. The lines are straight but without edges, with rounded corners and following what was marked by Sony in recent years, with a well differentiated chassis and front and rear. In fact, the fingerprint sensor is located on the right side , accessible both with the thumb of the right hand, and with the index of the left. Which seems like a good location, but with an extra physical on and off button.
This Sony terminal comes in only three colors in its finish. Elegant and sober. Namely: black, silver and gold. And on its back we see the double camera located in the upper left corner vertically, as it happens in Apple mobiles. So everything is clean and elegant.
Double camera for portrait effect
It is another of the usual resources in medium and entry ranges, and Sony has not missed the opportunity. For this reason, the Sony Xperia L3 has two cameras to achieve a bokeh effect or portrait mode faster and more efficient than with the software method of previous generations. To do this, it takes advantage of a 13-megapixel sensor as the main objective , and a supportive one of only 2 megapixels to measure depth and achieve the blur effect more realistically. These sensors achieve an ISO sensitivity of up to 3,200, but the cameras will have to be tested in detail to know the result and see if the user experience is good.
As for the selfie camera, it has an 8 megapixel sensor, which should be enough to deliver without technical flaunting.
Autonomy for more than one day
What is surprising about the Sony Xperia L3 data sheet is its battery. And it is that it has a 3,300 mAh battery . Generous taking into account the rest of the technical components such as the Mediatek 6762 processor , or the screen with HD + resolution. So, although it has the Android 8 Oreo operating system and not the efficient 9 Pie, it feels long and durable. Although, again, they are figures on paper.
