Everything is ok but its battery is not up to the mark. Don't go to buy this.. Wastage of money

People, this is a midrange phone! Stop whining, and stop comparing to those S6, G4, IPhone! A few hundred dollars Sony C4 phone will not get you all the features like the higher end phones. For crying out loud there are thick heads and pathetic people in the world.
santoshsantosh, 26 Jul 2015Sony Xperia C4 is not good a it looks.Not about looks.... It's about Sony Performance and Quality build! Hehe
In addition to my personal review with Sony C4 as owner - mentioned previously, I really like the fact that Sony did not go for its usual "Omni Balance" design for the C4. Truly speaking, Omni Balance had actually kept me away from buying Sony phones, as I found their much touted design to be bland, boring and over rated. Always wondered why Sony engineers couldn't think out of the box and come with something unique and fascinating in this CAD world - circa 2015.
Design of the C4 may be a hint, that Sony too has realized this, and perhaps they will invest in unique molds if they want to get back their lost glory.
Jeet2, 25 Jul 2015Hi, I bought C4 recently, 2 issues with the phone, screen goes off after call and people are ... moreIt looks like a serious hardware issue, if I were you I would take the c4 to warranty.
I bought C4 recently, 2 issues with the phone, screen goes off after call and people are not able to listen me during phone, problem with the microphone.so I have to talk loud on the phone.
Is it software or hardware issue?
Why put such a low amp charger in the box if the battery is always needing to be charged... Me being a nexus 5 user can see this xperia always being plugged into the wall... At least we get a decent charger though. And why is it always the same with the volumes being low on the music players when you've got a perfectly good speaker judging by the ringing volume. Need a Sony Xperia to bring back that loudness that the live Walkman (wt19i/wt19a) had. That phone still gives any of today's phones serious competition in the audio department.
Just bought C4 (5363 version) day before yesterday to replace my HTC One E8 dual sim; one stand out feature - its got lte 4g/4g for sim1 & sim2 + sd card slot. This is an important feature and a purchase decision which GSM Arena has failed to mention. Perhaps their test unit is different from mine.
Having said that, Nokia's 640 windows and Samsung's A7 too offer dual sims. BUT, A7 doesn't allow for two sims + sd card. You either insert two sims or one sim and a sd card.
Sony wins hands down with this knockout punch at Samsung.
Price: Acceptable for all its features and the Sony brand (you have to spend twice as much for an iphone - why???).
Screen quality & brightness: Great!
Colors: Great - nit pickers will never be happy no matter what they get.
Browser / CPU: occasional lag in accepting commands but otherwise great
Call quality / dialing: Good, doesn't drop calls - not even in elevators. Wish the dialer had a search function instead of having to click on contacts for looking up numbers.
UI: As always - Sony
Speaker Quality: Average but acceptable (at least not tinny)
Music experience: Headphones dependent, volume wise could be better. Perhaps an aftermarket amp booster or equalizer can sort that out.
Camera/s: Casually tested at purchase. However, having used htc prior to buying C4, I wont be disappointed with Sony's expertise with cameras.
Gaming: not my cup of tea, have never gamed ever.
Battery life & charging: Haven't put the phone through heavy use as yet, but so far, the battery sees me through my browsing, business calls, chats, emails, some business pictures, bluetooth connected music and unnecessary on and off. Around 6-8 pm, I consider refilling the tank, to be able to enjoy Chromecast after dinner. Standby time is great, and stamina mode should offer more mileage through the day.
Overall size: Handfull (but so are all other 5.5 phones), much more but pocketable than an iphone. Slightly less taller than an iphone +. width and dept about the same.
Build Quality: Yes plastic, but doesn't feel cheap - more on the premium side. Sony on it gets peoples envy.
VERDICT: Bought one for my brother too ... Go for it guys! you don't need to break the bank to have it.
I was play the Sims freeplay & Angry Bird Epic for 40 minutes. It feels a little hot. :( . I hope Sony will bring the solution
