The ZL, one of several smartphones the company has launched since January, offers a 5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) Reality Display powered by Mobile Bravia Engine 2, and also shares capabilities with Sony digital cameras and features Exmor RS for mobile, the world's first image sensor with High Dynamic Range (HDR) video for smartphones, which enhances clear images against strong backlight. The Xperia ZL also includes Battery Stamina Mode, which is designed to improve the battery standby time by automatically shutting down battery-draining apps whenever the screen is off and starting them up again when the screen is back on.

With an NFC-enabled headset or speaker, users can listen to the songs on their Xperia ZL with just a tap.
