Hello guys, I'm planning to buy this phone, but I just want to know if the screen is good for watching movies like transformer or frozen. Thanks
Does it support mkv,vob,avi and wmv format videos ?can u guys explain about it?
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!
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 extreme usage(Wifi downloads + installing apps + trying out new games + playing videos + what not)to get the battery down from 60 to 0 %. With moderate usage it should easily survive for two days. The stamina mode and other battery features are helpful.
The display is pretty good. I had read many reviews about bad viewing angles and was skeptical about buying this. But I didn't find any such thing. This is a far better display when compared with Galaxy Grand or other competitors. It plays 720p videos smoothly and it's just manageable in bright sunlight.
The build is classy. The bezel is very well finished and the rubberised back provides good grip. It is not difficult for one handed usage(depends on individuals). The design is nearly perfect. It is "nearly perfect" because the borders could have been smaller. You ought to remove the panel every time you need to change Sim Cards or Memory cards.
The internal memory is 4 GB and the space available to install apps is 1.2 GB. You can transfer the apps to SD card from the settings menu by keeping all the important apps like Keyboard, launcher and music player in the internal storage. I am using my old class 4 16Gb card, But I'd suggest you buy a class 10 32GB card for best experience. All the reviews which mentioned Internal memory as a big con are pointless as you can transfer apps easily to SD card.
The Mediatek processor works fine, No lags. Heavy games can be played easily. It has 1 gig RAM which I feel is enough for moderate usage. I have around 45 applications installed and at any given time( without cleaning/sweeping the tasks) the available RAM is around 200 MB. Any ways these depend on the kind of applications you are running and the number of apps open. If you are a heavy user this phone won't disappoint you. if you are a moderate user, you are in for a treat!
Many useful tweaks by Sony in the software. There is a separate power management option in the settings where you can use the Stamina mode and configure other battery tweaks. The Xperia settings makes setting up the phone very easy. Internet browsing is fast. I use 3G(Aircel) on phone and tether the same to my PC sometimes. The sound quality is good(expected from Sony). The notification LED is also very useful. There are a few inbuilt apps and not too much of bloat-ware. The primary camera is pretty good. The dedicated camera key is a bit difficult to use. The front camera sucks in poor lighting conditions. The freebies provided are below average. The Bluetooth headset works fine, but sometimes it is difficult to connect. Sony headset provided is just of average quality. The databank charger is of poor quality but it might save your life someday :/
The Sony accidental damage cover is just the icing on the cake. 6 months of accidental damage warranty. :O What more would you ask for?
Conclusion : It's a Value For Money phone from Sony. It is perfect if you are looking for a phone with a big screen and a very good build quality. The dual sim feature comes in handy. The battery, display and performance are excellent. It's a far better option if have to choose between Grand, Desire 500, Lumia 720, Canvas HD, Canvas 4 and LG optimus L9. It's a refreshing change from all those plasticky phone at this range. Sony. Made Me Believe. :P
PS: This is just a short review :P :D. I'll post a detailed review later.
this phone using mediatek chipset?? chinese chipset but expensive. better i use lenovo cuz the phone also using mediatek chiset and cheaper price for this spec
[deleted post]Its not lcd its tft and u can easily watch movie on this by any angle. If dual sim and .4 inch bigger display not a big deal for u then i suggest u to go for sp . It has gorrila glass protection and bravia engine 2 and 319 pix. There are some more difference which is not ignorable. Check this by yourself.
Shayan Chaudhry, 21 Dec 2013Could you please guide me as to should I buy this phone? Everybody else is saying that it hang... moreHello, Shayan!
For a budget phone with a big screen, I have no major complaints about it so far. The LCD for me is all right and I don't understand why people have complaints about it. Playing videos over Youtube is good and I also played games like Sonic Dash with it and it is also okay... The speakers are not so loud but acceptable. If you are on a tight budget like me, this is a good deal. I considered buying Xperia SP but the screen size made me decide otherwise. Hope this helps you!:)
Its a great phone having a awesome battery backup and its camera quantity is too good as if a person wants he/she can select the resolutions upto 2mp or vga and because of its full hd resolution the picture in low light is also awesome. And one most important thing its the best phone in mid range phone of sony as sony is best for its picture and sound quality.......... Nw best of sony in xperia c, the entertainment become bigger in xperia c
