Maddy India, 01 Dec 2015I am a HUGE Sony FAN and I want to share some thoughts. I am a Computer Engineer and trust me ... moresir can I ask where can I download kitkat 4.4.4?
Got problem with my c5 too :( but i don't want to take my own risk to downgrade it with my own coz i dunno how to do that.
Please help my sir thank you :)
tushu, 12 Dec 2015thanks bro. for suggesting me. but earlher today i went to the store and 1stly i checked xper... moreI'm glad you like C5 I said it's a beauty and also told you that rear camera is only decent and front one is better because it has 22 mm wide-angle lens so it's not everything about megapixels!there is also big difference between Superior auto and manual mode...
problems you encountered with rear camera are probably those: indoor photos to appear darker than they should and some noise in low light. you can adjust white balance trough slider in settings and light the photos. In manual settings you have those scene selection for example night scene or night portrait helps a lot to eliminate digital noise.also lower to 8mp when making shots in low light. when i shoved my friends what they can do in manual mode they never gone back to auto. That's it about the rear camera on C5 it can produce a decent results but it will never stand out. If you want both good cameras on mid range device check Xperia M5 it's similar device nice and sleek with a lot better hardware inside.
About the heating well this is gonna be longer replay but I will take my time to explain how things work.
There is difference between heating up and overheating so far I used many android devices mostly Sony,Samsung,HTC,LG and never had in my hand device that doesn't heat up and drain battery when gaming and using certain camera modes like those faces and portrait stuff,AR fun and 4K of course.
How much heat you will feel from device depends on chipset implementation and device build(if device is thick like HTC less heat you will feel from it,if device body is made of metal or glass it will become warm quickly but glass also helps to cool down faster then any other material)...
....and even when you don't feel it heat is there! check with cpu-z or some other app,Clean Master also is nice app that will warn you when cpu starts to heat up...but everything is ok! if there is no force closing apps , random crashes or frame rate drop in games you are good.
don't believe usual boolshit you can come across the internet that for example Mediatek does not heat up compared to Qualcomm or other way around....
there is no need to worry about the heat when using your phone(I never do it's not like is going to melt in your hand or burn it xD) if it overheats it's gonna simply close the app that causes heating until cools down but that rarely happens because it needs to be something really heavy like certain camera modes and that 4k , but never in gaming I can drain whole battery from 80% to 5% (playing Real Racing 3,Asphalt 8,Modern Combat 5) and it's not gonna close the game because of heat...

tushu, 11 Dec 2015hey guys!! plz help me out. i m confused
between xperia c5 ultra and htc one me.
plz tell me... more1: Front camera on C5 absolute beast rear camera is only decent it's reversed thing on HTC
2: For better display go with C5 it's really impressive even it's just 1080p
3.For connectivity C5
4.C5 also have excellent battery life.
5.Both phones preform good with no heating issues HTC should be slightly faster but hardly noticeable, although you should consider 1gb of ram more you are getting on HTC and bigger internal storage of 32gb compared with C5 which has 16gb but both come with expendable option up to 200gb trough microSD.
I personally would recommend you SONY C5 but best way to decide is always to go and try device for yourself in the store.One thing with SONY is that they are really good with future updates on software and build quality is never compromised to give better look.don't get me wrong this one is real beauty with thin body and bezels,huge screen and nice glossy back which is fingerprint magnet also :(
some additional info on C5 that it's almost identical with it's predecessor C4 in terms of hardware only key changes on C5 are :
1.nicer design with bigger display(from 5.5 to 6.0)
2.better front camera from (from 5mp to 13mp)
3.bigger battery (from 2600mha to 2930mha)
I'm mentioning C4 because it's cheaper and maybe worth consideration and there is some good info about it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41iRC3ng5ec remember C5 it's almost the same device with only 3 key changes i mentioned above.
hey guys!! plz help me out. i m confused

Juicy j, 05 Dec 2015It's a good phone mate. I have been using it for a month now and have no problems with it. Hi... moreHi Juicy, What about the battery life? How much max Screen On Time u get? How much time it takes to full charge? How about the battery drain in idle time? Have u upgraded to Lollipop 5.1.1? If yes, then how is it in terms of battery life? Thanks in advance.
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2015how many hrs is ur SOT in ur lollipop OS? and how did u downgraded it?Hi Friend, On Lollipop 5.1.1 at first I was getting Normal 3+ hrs SOT but later it gets decreased. I was struggling to get 1 hr SOT also. Lollipop is very Unpredictable regarding Battery Backup. The very IMP problem of lollipop is you get huge battery drain in mobile idle time also. In kitkat it is hardly 1% battery drain in idle time. Then I flashed Kitkat 4.4.4 then again it is back to normal. To install the kitkat again, just download a .ftf file of your Mobile as per correct model no and area. For eg. I have Sony Xperia ZR C5502 India version. So I downloaded the same and the using a Flash tool you can install the same. For detailed info, please see the flashing video on YouTube.
Clcc, 02 Dec 2015I've been using this fon for almost three weeks. I am starting to love this BUT I have a prob... moreI have the same problem! My mobile data is turned off but it still keeps using my data. Have you found a solution to it?
If Sony will not produce their own processor then in the future market it will be a big blow to them.
harsh, 04 Dec 2015When mashmellow update available in c5 ultra pls tell me friendsPossible Release date: February 2016
