The slick music UI that we saw on Sony’s Nxt series disappears to incorporate the user interface we saw on the previous gen Xperias. We quite liked the new UI and it’s a shame it didn’t make the switch to ICS. Music quality via the bundled earphones is loud enough and the equalizer settings lets you tweak the output.
The classy Music player interface
Video playback is limited to the stock formats supported. 1080p files don’t play on the device but 720p do. The display isn’t a BRAVIA one, but you won’t really notice too much of a difference. It’s got good viewing angles though we would have loved a little brighter screen on maxed out settings. FM Radio enthusiasts will be disappointed to know that there’s no FM radio on the Neo L.
Connectivity options include 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. The stock browser is pretty good for mobile websites as panning and zooming is smooth. You’ll have to be a little patient for full blown websites as an apparent lag comes into the picture.
Browsing and media consumption on the phone
In call quality was good and the speaker is loud enough as well. The recipient could hear us pretty clearly in our call tests. Like the other Xperias, the Neo L comes with good social networking integration. The Xperia Timescape application manages all your communications with one person in one place. Facebook, Twitter, calls, texts, photos – everything is part of a single stream, and in chronological order.
Bunch of other bundled apps
Sony has bundled the Neo L with the usual stuff. There’s a dedicated app for music and videos that accumulates the music and videos your friends have posted. The NeoReader helps you read bar codes. The phone also comes bundled with Wisepilot, McAfee Security and Office Suite.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
