Cedar- bandwidth upto 7.2mbps HSDPA 7.2mbps, HSUPA 2.5mbps.
C2- 2.0" TFT , tilted to all sides and colors are mixed up. Poor side view.
Cedar- 2.2" TFT, Only one side mixes up colors, that too better than what happens in c2. Better side views.
SPEAKER Loud. (Music)
Cedar- 62.8db (can be upgraded upto 68db changing audio driver)
C2- poor clarity, too high distortion compared to other phones.
Cedar- above average quality, better than x2.
C2- above average loudness with below average quality. Headset supplied is poor and below 350rs
Cedar- excellent loudness with outstanding quality. Slightly better than x2.
Headset supplied is good and costs 890rs in market.
hassled mp4 playback. Smooth playback ends after 680kbps @15fps.

C2- qvga at 15fps 3gp, when tested maximum bitrate ends up everytime below 550kbps.
Cedar- qvga at 30fps mp4. Max bitrate betwen 1400-1600, everytime tested. (Bitrate, frame per sec...etc based on media player classic's readings)

Maximum java size 1mb
multitask is not there along with smartdial and various other goodies.
Display brightness cant be adjusted.

Unlimited java size and heap size. Works any .jar apps of even 9 and 10mb size for 5233.
Multitask is available, minimise even 10+ apps and the phone continues running smooth.
Smart dial is available.
Still java, and you can move .mp3 into music, .jpeg then to pictures..etc only. 'To unlock, enter code' feature isnt available

Smart dial feature as advanced as in blackberry os.
Alarm is louder.
C2- good backup, usual nokia stuff.
27-33 hours under normal usage 6hr constant 3g downloading (umts,slowest 3g) backup
Cedar- very good backup, very rare for a sony
34-40 hours under normal usage. 13 hr in constant 3g downloading
C2- tough build, usual nokia standard.No shutter key
Cedar- tough build, rare for a sony. Dropped atleast 260+ times (lost count) and still no problem.No shutter key.
Vol keys double as next previous keys once playing music.
Both got 3.5mm jack

Both are from same price range, under 4500rs.. With a mere difference of 250-380rs between

As Papa-T, no need for lies: C2-01 works perfectly well. It Can even compete in combat with most so called big phones of high prices. But its talk time of 4h is where it fails...

naboth, 26 Dec 2011...so far so good. I love it!this handset ,,,,i like most ..... sound good...spacemore,,,
One of my friend had purchased C2-01, he faced problem on battery back-up. Talk time was only 2 hours, where as the company specification is more than 8 hours. Any how he replaced that set with a new one because at the dealer point, however he faced the same problem in the new set also. Now he has submitted that 2nd set in nokia care and waiting for a solution.
So, there is no truth on the specification given by the company.
