Technerd, 25 Aug 2015It's because C4 has crappy Mediatek processor that Chinese brands sell for under 10k. Only thi... moreMediatek doesn't quite have the rep Qualcomm has, but the chipset used on the C4 benchmarks quicker than the snapdragon 615 phones in the same range. So unless you get the 801 or above in and around the same price, its performance is not that bad.
The C4 was extremely overpriced at launch. Personally it still slightly is.
As for rooting and modding the phone. I am still struggling to do so.
Anybody with any links for the same ?
noops, 22 Aug 2015should i buy samsung a5 or sony c4 ...i m v confused after seeing ur commentSamsung A5 touch is very good. Don't buy Sony xperia C4
Ricky, 17 Aug 2015my xperia c4 has an camera open issue,,, its take too much time to open about 3 to 4 seconds,,... moreIt's because C4 has crappy Mediatek processor that Chinese brands sell for under 10k. Only thing you can do now is root your device and flash with Cyanogen mod OS 12 for xperia C4. Cyanogen OS is much faster and better than sony UI.
But it will void warranty. For now you can just disable the apps that you don't use via app settings
Guys. Please don't buy this phone. Really disappointing Specs. 1.7ghz Mediatek processor for 27k. Seriously? It's the same processor that is present in crapy Lenovo K3 note for just 10, 000. Camera is also not as good as they claim. MI4 has the best selfie cam I've ever used. If you want to buy only Sony better go with Xperia Z2 or Nexus 6 cause it's much better than this sh..ty phone which is nothing but a K3 note from Sony for 27k while K3 note gives same specs for 10k. Both are crap anyways.
To bad this phone isnt sold in america and to bad it doesnt work on tmobile.
I'f it did i would buy it
my xperia c4 has an camera open issue,,, its take too much time to open about 3 to 4 seconds,,,, very bad,,, what the usage of 2 gm ram and 1.7 octa processor,,, also when u captured image,, when u wanna see to open,,, its again take too much time,, why ,,, any solution guyz....also when i take video,,, the camera got hangs,,, smash dat,, help
Been using the Xperia C4 dual for a little over a day.
People who claim the C4 to have the Best camera have seriously used some mediocre camera phones in the past. A pathetic front camera when used without the front flash. Washed out images with No detail whatsoever. Rear camera good enough when used in Manual Mode. Battery seems decent so far (updated with the latest firmware). But Charging takes forever, atleast 3 hours. Assume its due to the low powered charger provided.
Good Speed, Display and Sound. No issues with network connectivity. Slight Heating (acceptable for modern phones) when gaming a few minutes.
a Decent Phone All In All but based on the hardware provided and its performance so far, I'd say the C4's over priced by a few 1000 INR. Sony should have made more efforts with the camera since the Camera is its USP.
gandhi , 21 Aug 2015Anyone tell me which one is the best camera clearity between sony c4 and samsung a7...?Sony c4 is the better

Anonymous, 19 Aug 2015buy other phone.. samsung or lg is much much better than sonysony is far better than any samsung mobile phones.
.., 20 Aug 2015C4 or xperia z2? Which one is better?You cannot compare a flagship device with a mid ranger. Of course Z2 stands miles ahead of C4.
.., 20 Aug 2015C4 or xperia z2? Which one is better?are you serious ? z2 is far better than c4. xperia z series is the original sony series. others are fake.
I bought this phone a few days ago and I m facing heating issue as well as battery is running out quickly.
