Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo L (Rs 16,499)
Sony Ericsson Xperia Play with its extensive gaming capabilities and controls was one of the best gaming phones of its times and still is.

To keep its cost low Xperia Neo L doesn't have PSP controls, and this makes it more practical as well.

It has 512 MB of RAM to keep performance speedy, which is essential for gaming. The 4 inch capacitive touchscreen with 480 x 854 pixel resolution and rich colour reproduction is perfectly complemented with brilliant sound output.
The Xperia Neo L runs on Google Android Ice Cream Sandwich that has hundreds of free and paid games. If that is not enough then users can also make use of the Playstation Suite-a dedicated store for Playstation certified devices for more content such as optimized games and multimedia content as well.
