I'm using Xperia C3(white) dual from almost a week, bought on 3rd Dec (India)& like to share my experience
1.Looks wise the phone has 5.5 inch HD display which is very good to play games,watch videos, browse and super thin body really looks elegant like a 30K abv phone.
2.Battery seems non-removable.I'm getting awesome abv 1 day back-up in Stamina mode with constant 3G net on, playing games, browsing, calling (except nite hrs 12-7am where i keep my mobile in airplance mode)
3.Performance wise not faced lag on the device, but it sometimes behaves weired, goes blank or runs slow, spclly during calls or doin multiple tasks simultaneously.
4.Front camera is great fr selfies but rear camera is not good. In low light pics from back camera is grainy. But in bright day light it taking awesome pics. I've called customer support fr technical assistance & they advised few camera adjustment in camera settings to get better pics frm rear cam.
Now I'm getting little better pics frm rear cam.
For the weired device response..technical support team asked me to repair ur device using PC Companion (which I'll do later)
5.Internal memory is total 4.7 GB (& not 8GB as shown in gsmarena). However I've disabled few inbuilt Factory Apps which I dont use & may consume space. (one can move apps to SD card).
As of now I've a mixed feeling for this device but happy when i compared to my last samsung S3. Hope Sony releases some s/w update to fix issues in C3 for its Indian customers.

I have purchased Sony Xperia C3 from reliance digital (order # 4101380091). The phone look wise very nice but camera is extremely poor. We were surprised to see such bad camera in 20K range phone. I have asked for a DOA from sony service center to get a replacement from reliance but sony refused to issue that. Finally reliance digital at their risk exchanged the phone and now I am using Lumia 730 which is excellent. So my purpose of writing for those who are planning to buy sony, especially this C3. DO NOT go for this. They are fooling people with the look of the phone.
I really appreciate Reliance for their great support but to much upset with the service of sony :(
