Not sure which Mobile network to go for?
OneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Sony Xperia L1 ee contract or a Sony Xperia L1 Tesco Mobile contract?
The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - OneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.
Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Sony Xperia L1 contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.
A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signal across all major mobile networks across the UK.
So which network has the best signal?
According to Which?, In their latest research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.
EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?
In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.
Out of our 2598 Sony Xperia L1 deals, our cheapest Sony Xperia L1 deal over the entire life of the contract is £408.00, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.
We have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile Networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.
A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Sony Xperia L1 SIM free phone would cost, this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront. The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile Networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Sony Xperia L1 handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Sony Xperia L1 Contract.
Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contract is to consider purchasing a pre owned Sony Xperia L1 phone from the likes of Music Magpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
