I am using this phone for more than two years now and am mostly satisfied with the performance. Few days back the phone was unable to identify the SIM cards and failed to secure network connections. However, the issue got resolved after a cycle of multiple 'switching off and on'. The battery never let me down even on days of heavy usage. I am of the opinion that this is a phone worthy of purchase - even though some of the features are bit less in comparison to the latest products.
Ultimately, the choice is yours
Since End Of Year 2015, this Phone always accompany in all my activities, and there is never any problem on this phone.
Great Phone!! I Love Sony so so so Much.
and move to Xperia XZ Premium :)

Thanks in advance.
My one year old brand new Xperia C5 just lost its network without any warning. My local Sony dealer has been totally unable to fix it. It is such a disappointment.
Am of the opinion that this Phone has got terrible issues of which battery is one of it. Why..? Phone switches off suddenly even with a 70% battery icon. Phone gets suddenly hot like on fire! At this point, i dare not recommend this Phone to anyone.The disappointment is real. Other than it is not pron to scratch & It makes clear pix its a nightmare. I hope to get it working again if a battery replacement will fix it for me.

I am a dedicated fan of Sony Phones because of Japanese product, and used many Xperia devices till now around 4 devices in last 7 years but after Sony reduced attention from Indian Market, My Xperia C5 Ultra Duel purchased on February 2016 got suddenly very slow and screen responsive time was too bad, lag issues was started surfacing annoyingly. Another issue was observed that major retail outlets stopped selling Sony devices.
Therefore left with no other option than to go for an exchange offer in Amazon and purchased my first Samsung Phone Galaxy A9 Pro.
Hope the Japanese brand Sony once again come back to Indian Market with all it's glory like Nokia is entering Indian Market.
