Is your fingerprint reader on the back of the phone working fine, but after you install a case on your phone, the number of retries needed to unlock the phone increases? There is a reasonable reason why this happens and a simple way to solve, or at least improve upon this problem!
The Sony Xperia L2 has a microSD memory card slot, and the slot is in the same area of the phone as the SIM card. Adding or removing a microSD is has similar steps to installing a SIM card, but the microSD card does not go into a tray, instead it goes directly into the body of the phone.
So here are the step by step instructions on how to do this:
We continue our slow-moving review of the Sony Xperia L2 smartphone with a discussion of the features and specs! We break them down in three categories for readability… The next post will discuss the “User Experience” aspects of the review. For example, the screen being a fingerprint magnet or that battery life is pretty decent in real-world use belongs in that part of the review, it’s not a feature/spec 🙂
I am a fan of using cases on phones for a variety of reasons. The Sony Xperia L2 [check our posts on it here] has nowhere near as many cases as some of the more popular phones, but it has enough of them to make picking not an easy task. As you may recall from my half a dozen Nexus 6 case reviews, I prefer the phone’s buttons to remain uncovered by cases, as the various overlays they use have their issues.
However, of the available choices at Amazon, I wasn’t certain any of them did not cover the buttons. A couple looked possible but it could have been the way they took the pictures. Of the various options, I only recognized one brand that I had previously bought a case from, Moko, so I picked up the Moko case for $8. Spoiler alert: it turned out to be a good decision!
we are back with another unboxing post. This time we have the Sony RX10 Mark IV digital camera, an all-in-one type of a camera with a fixed lens that promises much and more! We’ll have a lot more on the camera in future post. For now, we take it out of the box…
I don’t know if Sony is planning to give the Xperia L2 the Oreo upgrade, but yesterday it got an over-the-air update moving it from the November 2017 security patch as it came out of the box to the January 2018 security patch. The update was a 252.1 MB download, so grab it over Wifi if you don’t have unlimited data and you are not close to throttling.
To cut a long story short, everything went fine and according to plan. A non-boring (I hope) summary of the happenings is after the break… The guys in the picture below look like could be part of a new scifi TV show for Playstation Vue 🙂
Hooray! The Sony Xperia L2 works with the Project-FI “Data SIM”! Last year I switched from T-Mobile to Project FI after the Big Magenta raised their prices and I realized that I was over-paying and under-utilizing what I was paying for. The “Data SIM” is a good opportunity to add secondary/backup smartphones to your primary line on Project-FI…
I did not check any of the bands before attempting to use the L2 on Project FI, so I did not know what to expect! I had already ordered a Project-FI Data SIM a few months earlier, but I activated the SIM card only AFTER I installed it in the Xperia L2.
This was a mystery that was driving me crazy, and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one puzzled by it. But I finally found the answer by checking Amazon order receipts. The mystery being, why do some of the Amazon Kindle/digital orders close immediately, while others take half a day?
In other words, sometimes when you buy an ebook (or other digital content) you get the order confirmation email immediately, and other times you get it half a day later.
