Reviews Word on the street

Xperia L  vs Galaxy S II 

More than equipped to play our test video that’s encoded in DivX 1920 x 1080 resolution, the handset is unequivocally perfect for the occasion thanks to its smooth playback and rich details – and it helps that its Super AMOLED Plus display is so oozing with plenty of eye-catching visuals.
