Xperia ZL notification light changes colour like the Xperia U

in Videos, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL

The Sony Xperia ZL has a notification light, which Sony has emphasised in some of the press photos that were released. Whilst the notification light is quite small, it has a nifty LED that actually changes colour depending on what content is showing on screen. It works in a very similar way to the Xperia U, but as the Xperia ZL light is so small, the effect is much more subtle. Nonetheless it is a nice effect and you can see it in action in the video below.
