With its all-black plastic and anodized aluminum construction, the Sony Xperia TL's conservative design has class but isn't stunning. The phone's 4.55-inch screen has a sharp 1,280x720-pixel resolution.
The Sony Xperia TL doesn't have many physical controls, and they're all placed on the phone's right side. Here you'll find buttons for power, volume, and launching the camera app. Also located on this edge is a flap covering slots for SIM and microSD.
