Sony Xperia ZL:
Xperia ZL was announced along with Xperia Z, the flagship smartphone of Sony. Xperia ZL can be called a miniature Xperia Z, with a cut down sheet of specs and of course without waterproofing.
Xperia ZL lacks the water proofing feature of its big brother. It misses the glass finishing too. Xperia ZL is rather plasticky in its body. We can't complaint that it does not have the premium look of Xperia Z, as the price tag is a bit lower for ZL. Almost all the internals like the OS, CPU, Primary camera, etc are the same for both the smartphones.
The fact is that, there are no huge difference between Xperia Z and ZL. Even in the case of its price, both are so near. Xperia ZL is currently available at a price tag of rupees 34,000/-. that means, there is only a difference of 2,000/- rupees. When we are sure to get the flagship phone at 36,000, then what is the need of going for a scaled version at 34,000? Well, preferences are yours!
