Enthralling and gape-worthy, the Xperia C from Sony is a smartphone made for amazing entertainment.

View The World Better

A massive 5 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen that is quarter HD ensures that all that you view on it seems better, bigger, sharper and more beautiful. With a crisp finish and a brightness that you cannot contend with, the smartphone ensures that your eye sees only the best.

Capturing Clarity

The Xperia C comes with an 8 megapixel camera that incorporates the Exmor R technology that stems from Sony’s time-proven record with professional cameras. Helping you take amazing pictures even in low-light conditions, the camera employs HDR, aided by a pulsed LED, that captures at different exposure levels and layers them, ensuring that the subject looks crisp and bright.

A 0.3 megapixel secondary camera comes in handy when you want to take that perfect selfie or high-quality video chats with a loved one. What’s more, the phone is also capable of capturing full HD videos as well.

A scaling mechanism which is intuitive about what you are searching for allows you to find specific pictures with ease. Also, the phone body comes with a dedicated camera button that lets you access it in a jiffy.

Connectivity Simplified

The Xperia C can also be connected with your large screen TV to watch mind-blowing content like it should be. All you need is Wi-Fi connectivity on the TV and you can throw content onto it using Bluetooth on your phone - the best way to connect to other devices without the hassle of wires.

Processing with Power

A 1.2 GHz MTK6589 Quad Core processor backed by 1 GB RAM gives you performance and speed that you could easily get used to. Lag is a thing of the past as you blaze through apps, the web, streaming live videos and multitasking is but a piece of cake that will not frustrate you with slow responses. Aided and abetted by the Android v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system that is both intuitive and smooth while being simple and easy to use as well, the phone packs quite a punch.

4 GB of internal storage can be extended upto 32 GB and the phone packs a 2330 mAh battery as well. A feature that comes in very handy to those who don’t get the time to charge their phone batteries all that often, the Battery STAMINA mode that comes with the dual GSM SIM Sony Xperia C ensures that unnecessary battery drainage is curbed by cutting off display when not in use and disabling Wi-Fi and data traffic while still allowing notifications to show up on the screen, significantly improving battery life. You can also customize what kind of notifications you want to show up.

A smartphone that will definitely catch the eye, the Sony Xperia C will ensure that daily tasks are made simpler.

Big problem with the "internal storage" - Not able to install any apps

Got this phone for 18k from flipkart - as usual packing of the phone was excellent, flipkart took 4 days to deliver. I initially thought this product is great. When I first started to get the "internal Storage running out error" - i thought, it may be because I do not have the SD card. I got class 10 sony SD card with 32 G storage. It still kept giving me "internal Storage running out error" despite having 32 G memory card, which is less than 10% full and after moving all my apps to SD ca...

Don't be misled by false arguments and statements..

Most of the points people have mentioned,while comparing Grand with Xperia C, are completely wrong. So,don't be misled. Following are some of those points-

A. Processor - MediaTek consumes lesser battery as compared to Qualcomms. Also, you can't compare a 1.2 GHZ MediaTek processor with a 1.5 or 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon. So, let us compare those variants which have same frequency per core say 1.2 GHz. i.e. MediaTek's MT6589 processor versus Qualcomm's MSM8228Q. Please note that Grand Duos...

Bang for the Buck.

I ordered this on 16th morning and it was delivered by 17th afternoon!! Kudos to flipkart!! I always thought Sony phones were overpriced, but some phones like the Xperia Z, C, SP, ZL and ZR are not at all overpriced. So decided to buy this!

After cashback, the final price was 16k!

I have been using this phone continuously from 3 days, and here's what I found out. (will write a detailed review later)

The battery backup is amazing considering its an 5 inch android phone. It took 7 hours of...

Best of Sony at a best price !!!!

Overall a good phone.... I have purchased 4 Sony Xperia C from Flipkart and Enlisting my views....

1) Build quality is good except the back cover, hard to remove and feels delicate.
2) Camera quality is not up to the expectations, images blur at low lights even at outdoor.
3) Screen clarity is awesome, plays uninterrupted HD videos..
4) Has WCDMA/GSM option for sim 1 only... Can not switch 3G network from one sim to another.
5) Free big Headphones are awesome with graet quality sound output,...

Xperia C - My thoughts on Sony's latest

Bought this phone on diwali. Before ordering, I was quite confused due to such regular price fluctuations especially on this phone. I've seen the same phone priced at 17200 and then at 18800 and then at 19005, 20490 and more, all this within the space of only a few hours. This always got my thinking whether I should wait or place the order rightaway. The moment arrived when I thought it's not wise to wait further and bought it for 20490 with an exchange offer. But still leaves a bad taste in ...

I bought this phone from flipkart , but I was not that satisfied with the phone. I earlier owned an Xperia L ,which I gave to my son , were much better than this.

I'm going to show a short comparison between Xperia C and Xperia L..Sorry , I'm a very very simple user and my son is an android developer so I'm writing whatever he had told me about these two phone..

Xperia C-

1. Display- This has an amazing display and has very rich colours . It also has very good viewing angles.
