Engadget Review

The Xperia TL is Sony's first true flagship for the US market. But despite its aggressive $99 on-contract pricing, the TL fails to overtake HTC's superior One X, casting it as a second-place budget option.

The Sony Xperia TL delivers fast performance, long battery life, a sharp camera and handy NFC features for a good price.

The Xperia TL for AT&T brings Sony up to speed with a fast, reasonably priced smartphone that will please average users and James Bond aficionados alike.

Sony made a gorgeous phone that seemingly has the potential to be the device that finally delivers its elusive home run hit. That potential is sadly wasted on a device that has just enough frustrations to be another link in a chain of disappointments.
