The Sony Xperia ZL, little brother to the high-end Xperia Z may not have the water resistant protection but it still packs a punch with its nearly-identical hardware and display. Like its sibling, the Xperia ZL features a 5-inch scratch resistant TFT display with 1080x1920 resolution. The overall size is slightly smaller (5.18 x 2.7 x 0.39 inches), but still rocks a 1.5GHz Qualcomm quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM.

The Sony Xperia ZL launched with  Android 4.1 and was subsequently updated to Android 4.2.2. Other features include a 13-megapixel rear camera, and 2MP front-shooter.
