Re: Sony Xperia TL - Opinions?
I traded in my ion for the TL because battery life is a big thing for me and the ion, despite being a great phone overall, had rather depressing battery life.
The TL is much better than the ion in my opinion, and I give credit to the S4 processor in the TL mostly for the boost in juice. I can usually squeeze out 8-10 hours on my TL with "normal" use. However, I use a lot of data, and being one of the few on AT&T that still has their unlimited data offer, I use it to the fullest extent (I average 5GBs a month now with LTE =]) and heavy 4G certainly kills the battery much faster. I have found that the phone lasts me until I can get home. I sometimes do need to charge it when at home for the evening hours, but I also realize that most people aren't up until 5am like I am most nights. At least I am able to make it home before my battery dies so I don't have to bring my charger with me all the time and be constantly tethered to a wall - which is how I felt with the ion - and I'm not all about my phone dying halfway through my day.
Overall I'd say the TL battery life is "average" I would give it a 7/10 for battery which is about only bad thing I can say for this phone, and its not even "bad."
The Xperia TL is a beautiful phone =) perfect balance of aesthetics and performance in my opinion.
Also, I always leave 4G on and very rarely use WiFi, only when I have no other connection (My LTE averages 35Mbps which is faster than my home internet lol). I usually leave the screen brightness up 70-100% as well and vibration for the home buttons and all notifications. I listen to music and sometimes use Bluetooth for transfers or A2DP. I'm a heavy texter as well (~3000 a month)
