Top customer reviews

+ The Xperia L1's GPS includes GLONASS (Russian satellite support), something the entire Moto G series desperately needed. Satellite lock is almost instant and very accurate. The L1 also has a magnetometer (digital compass) which was absent in the Moto G series.
+ The Xperia L1's screen, while lower pixel density (267ppi vs 294 on the G4 Play), has much better color saturation. The screen is also half an inch larger, ideal for using Nougat's multi-window mode.
= The L1's 13MP camera is about on par with the Moto G4 Play's 8MP camera when using auto-focus. However, the manual shot mode on the L1 does appear to have a decent array of options which might give it a competitive edge in the hands of an experienced photographer.
= The Xperia L1 comes with Android 7.0 out of the box, while the G4 Play claims it will update to 7.1.1 through standard OTA. Motorola has had numerous delays in deploying this update, hence the initial need to use a custom ROM. There aren't too many differences, honestly, and the L1 is already getting a steady stream of support updates, making them evenly matched in software.
= Bluetooth problems seem to be inherent on all Nougat devices right now, including Google's own flagship Pixel devices. The G4 Play running Lineage 14.1 will often disconnect from Bluetooth when connecting/disconnecting a Wi-Fi network, and phone calls on Bluetooth can occasionally force a reboot. Meanwhile, on the Xperia L1, the connection is stable but much shorter. Audio becomes finicky as far away as 5 meters on a device with a max range of 30 meters.
= The L1's USB-C connector is still using the 2.0 standard, giving it roughly the same data transfer and charge rates as the G4 Play's MicroUSB port. However, the Type-C port feels a lot sturdier than the old MicroUSB port, which justifies the necessity of newer (better) cables.
- The L1's MediaTek 6737T, despite having better benchmarks than the G4 Play's Snapdragon 410, has considerably more lag. This was a major disappointment for me as someone who uses their phone for EVERYTHING. Apps take a bit longer to open, and the keyboard has a slightly poorer response rate.
- The L1 has a glass screen with a hardness of 6. However, it's so thick that if you try and place a tempered glass screen protector on top of it, the touch screen struggles to register much of anything. This means you need to go without and be a lot more careful than you would need to be with the G4 Play, which happily accepts tempered glass screen protectors.
Is the Xperia L1 worth $200? I would say it's worth close enough to $200 not to matter. It more than makes up for the limitations of the Moto G4 Play, though it would have done better with a processor to match. It can beat out some phones in its class (like the Nokia 3), but other phones (like the upcoming Moto E4) might give it a run for its money (provided Motorola does not make the same mistakes twice).
