avro, 07 Dec 2013please all 5" display phones must be hd quality or do not make them.please send regards to samsung mega 5.8 too. thanks
Raker, 08 Dec 2013bro apps cant be installed on sd card. in this model i tried itIt supports install and move to sd, but first you have to activate it in Settings - Storage. So there's really no big issue about the internal storage.
This is more like a research article than a review of the Sony Xperia C. The price of the phone http://www.prodsea.com/Sony-Xp...ce-1003-1185 is comparatively ok but seeing the article it appears Sony Xperia C is not one among the best in the lot. For the price it is offered and features I think it is still good enough
looks even sony going to use MTK chipsets .qulcom maybe will focus on LTE chipset and MTK LTE chipset will be expected future .
Raker, 08 Dec 2013bro apps cant be installed on sd card. in this model i tried itokkk
seriously why did they make it 5 inch, why? With such a resolution 4.3 inch would be good, or 4.7 but damn 5?
Check out the photo compare tool, this XC takes really worse pictures than X SP or X Arc, all 8MP, as of 131209. Good enough for sns apps though. :)
MrGenie, 07 Dec 2013Seriously Sony????
2GB of user space?
even the least of users might be interested ... moreThis phone being intended for the Chinese market has the move apps to sd card functionality so the internal memory is no issue...
My neighbour has mfsmw, mc4, dh3, asphalt8, real steel, etc games installed and yet no lag... Even the screen is very sharp so no issues there either!
And battery life is stellar too...
MrGenie, 07 Dec 2013Seriously Sony???? 2GB of user space? come on! even the least of users might be interested ... moreSo they will install to the sd card, get over it man. Whatsapp can be installed on old phones with 300MB internal storage and below.
2GB of user space?
even the least of users might be interested in installing an app or 2!
a game per say!
dude.. whats app media will fill that in NO time!!!!!!
please all 5" display phones must be hd quality or do not make them.
SG, 06 Dec 2013Still u did not learn Sony. Internal memory only 2GB? u kidding me? just make it 16GB and u c... moreIt is true that smartphones should have a minimum 8gb (or 16gb on the comfort side) internal memory...but xperia c supports moving apps to sd card.....hence...considering the price point, its not going to be a deal breaker......
Gaszton, 06 Dec 2013can anyone tell why sony does not use in-plane-switching (IPS)screens?
even in thier flags... moreAs someone already replied to you, you are confusing the terms. TFT, also known as active matrix, is an underlying technology that is used in all smartphone display types, think of it as the distribution grid, it delivers electric signals to the individual subpixels.
The pixel types are built on various technologies like TN, IPS, PVA and their many variations. Basically IPS only differs from TN in that the crystals are aligned differently so they can be twisted with both electrodes connected to the same side of the liquid crystals layer (both electrodes in the same plane, hence named in-plane) while TN requires electrodes on both sides of the liquid crystals layer.
Sony's displays seem to be a high quality TN type with very good viewing angles (for a TN). In fast paced games you can see that TN has less motion blur and pointer trails than the average IPS, it is not without advantages.
Xperia Z Ultra and Tablet Z are using IPS and it's expected that also Z1 Mini will use IPS, will know when we see Z1f in Japan.
Come on gsmarena, please make a complete review of the lenovo p780 and compare it to xperia c. they have same chipset and same screen size.
Still u did not learn Sony. Internal memory only 2GB?
u kidding me? just make it 16GB and u could have given GALAXY GRAND run for its money , All i can say is one more fail from you. what People with budget constraints look for is this. 1. Screen size 2. Internal / Expandable memory 3.Atleast 1GB RAM , Now guess how GRAND made a success story.
ravi4ever, 06 Dec 2013overpriced cellphone maker uses MTK and still it is an overpriced product, such a waste.i agree its a little overpriced hence the nice design and the "sony" brand, but if only sony in my country (indonesia) had better aftersales service than i would go for it...
