Getting started

About this User guide This is the Xperia L User guide for the Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) software version. If you're not sure which software version your device is running, you can check it via the Settings menu. For more information about software updates, see Updating your device.

To check the current software version of your device 1 Drag the status bar downwards, then tap Settings. 2 Tap About phone > Android version.

What is Android? Your Xperia smartphone from Sony runs on the Android platform. Android phones can perform many of the same functions as a computer and you can customize them to your own needs. For example, you can add and delete applications, or enhance existing applications to improve functionality. On Google Play, you can download a range of applications and games from a constantly growing collection. You can also integrate applications on your Android phone with other applications and with online services that you use. For example, you can back up your phone contacts, access your different email accounts and calendars from one place, keep track of your appointments, and engage in social networking.

Android phones are constantly evolving. When a new software version is available and your phone supports this new software, you can update your phone to get new features and the latest improvements.

Your Android phone is pre-loaded with Google services. To get the most out of the provided Google services, you should have a Google account and sign in to it when you first start your phone. You also need to have Internet access to use many of the features in Android.

New software releases may not be compatible with all phones.

Home Go to the Home screen

Task Tap to open a window showing your most recently used applications and a small apps bar

Battery

Charging the battery Your battery is partly charged when you buy the device. It may take a few minutes before the battery icon appears on the screen when you connect the charger cable to a power source, such as a USB port or a charger. You can still use your device while it is charging. Charging your device over a long period of time, for example, overnight, does not damage the battery or the device.

The battery will start to discharge a little after it is fully charged and then charges again after a certain time when the charger is connected. This is to extend battery life and may result in the charge status showing a level below 100 percent.

To charge your device

1 Plug the charger into a power outlet. 2 Plug one end of the USB cable into the charger (or into the USB port of a

computer). 3 Plug the other end of the cable into the micro USB port on your device, with the

USB symbol facing up. The battery status LED lights up when charging starts. 4 When the battery status LED is green, the device is fully charged. Disconnect the

USB cable from your device by pulling it straight outward. Make sure not to bend the connector when removing the cable from the device.

Use the charger and USB cable provided with the device to ensure faster charging.

If the battery is completely discharged, it may take a few minutes before the LED lights up after you connect the charger cable to a power source.

Battery LED status

Green The battery is fully charged

Flashing red The battery level is low

Orange The battery is charging. The battery level is between low and full

To check the battery level 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Find and tap Settings > About phone > Status > Battery level.

Improving battery performance The following tips can help you improve battery performance:

Charge your device often. This will not affect the lifetime of the battery. Downloading data from the Internet is power consuming. When you're not using the

Internet, you can save power by disabling all data connections over mobile networks. This setting does not prevent your device from transmitting data over other wireless networks.

Turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections when you don't need these features. You can turn them on and off more easily from the Notification panel by dragging down the status bar.

Use the STAMINA mode and Low battery mode features to reduce battery consumption. You can select the power saving mode that best suits the way you use your device. You can also customize the settings of each power saving mode.

Set your synchronization applications (used to synchronize your email, calendar, and contacts) to synchronize manually. You can also synchronize automatically, but increase the synchronization intervals.

Check the battery usage menu in your device to see which applications use the most power. Your battery consumes more power when you use video and music streaming applications, such as YouTube. Some applications downloaded from Google Play may also consume more power.

Close and exit applications that you are not using. Lower the screen display brightness level.

Turn off your device or activate the Airplane mode setting if you are in an area with no network coverage. Otherwise, your device repeatedly scans for available networks, and this consumes power.

Use a Sony original handsfree device to listen to music. Handsfree devices demand less battery power than your device's own loudspeakers.

Keep your device in standby whenever possible. Standby time refers to the time during which your device is connected to the network and is not being used.

Disable any live wallpaper.

To access the battery usage menu 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Find and tap Settings > Power management > Battery usage.

Using STAMINA mode Activate the STAMINA mode feature to pause your Wi-Fi connection, data traffic and several power consuming applications when your screen is inactive. When STAMINA mode is active, you can still receive phone calls, and text and multimedia messages. You can also set up an applications list to allow some applications to keep running when your screen is inactive. Once the screen becomes active again, all paused functions are resumed.

To activate STAMINA mode 1 Drag the status bar downwards, then tap . 2 Find and tap Power management. 3 Drag the slider beside STAMINA mode to the right, then tap Activate.

To change the settings for STAMINA mode 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Find and tap Settings > Power management. 3 To open the settings menu, tap STAMINA mode. 4 Add or remove applications, as desired. 5 When you're finished, tap Done.

Estimating the standby time of your device Standby time refers to the amount of time the battery can last when your device is connected to the network but is not in active use, for example, to receive or make phone calls. STAMINA mode, when activated, continuously evaluates the remaining standby time, which can vary depending on how you use your device. STAMINA mode is more effective in lengthening the standby time if you keep the screen of your device locked. If you rarely lock the screen, you may not see much improvement in battery performance.

When you use your device for the first time, the estimated standby time may not be accurate since there is no previous usage history to estimate from.

To view the estimated standby time 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Find and tap Settings > Power management.

Using Low battery mode You can activate the Low battery mode feature to save power when the battery level is low. This feature helps you to adjust the settings for screen brightness, data traffic and the vibrate function so that you can reduce battery consumption.

Using the touchscreen A protective plastic sheet is already attached to the screen of your device when you buy it. You should peel off this sheet before using the touchscreen. Otherwise, the touchscreen might not function properly.

When your device is on and left idle for a set period of time, the screen darkens to save battery power, and locks automatically. This lock prevents unwanted actions on the touchscreen when you are not using it. You can also set personal locks to protect your subscription and make sure only you can access content on your device.
