Sony’s latest Xperia device may be the best-looking smartphone available for $199. The Xperia L1 isn’t anything to write home about spec-wise, but given the astronomically low price, it can hold its own:

  • 5.5-inch 720p display
  • MediaTek MT6737T quad-core processor
  • 2GB RAM, 16GB of storage, expandable up to 256GB
  • 5MP front camera, 13MP rear camera
  • 2,620mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.2, USB-C port

It’s nothing special, but it does run Android N, comes fully unlocked, and it’s available in pink and white. You can purchase the Sony Xperia L1 today from Amazon or Best Buy for $199.
