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 ...
