    Default Sony Xperia TL - Opinions?

    Am I the only one using this device? haha

    I have been using the Lumia 920 as my primary device for a few weeks now, and reall enjoy it. But, I missed all of my Android applications.

    I exchanged my 920 for the SXTL. So far I am pretty happy with it. I wouldn't say there is really anything that really sticks it out from the crowd, other than it's 13mp shooter. -Still nothing compared to the 920's camera. Performance is snappy. Zero lag.

    Battery life has been absolutely horrid, but I am coming to terms with the face that unless I get a "maxx".. I'll probably always be charging twice a day if I am using android.

    What do you mean by "horrid"? I passed on the ION because I had hoped the S4 processor in the TL would enable much better battery life,especially on LTE. What are you getting so far?

    I've been using it since Monday. So I have been able to do full cycles. I am already halfway through my second charge of the day.

    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)

    i went from the titan II to the TL (yes im a former wp7 user and got burned by HTC for the last time) and i do have good battery life. i do not live in a LTE area just HSPA+ which might be helping me.

    I have a TL as my work phone and I love it. Perfect size and screen clarity is amazing. The camera, while being rather difficult to adjust to (it is more...finicky than my iPhone's camera), takes amazing photos.
