  •  good phone 20 May 2014

    4/5 stars

    By Anmol Bansal

    Sony Xperia C is a great device with 5" display that provides almost all premium features of a high end smartphone. If we talk about display quality, this phone lightens enough pixels to provide good viewing angles even in sunlight. I am totally impressed with its smooth functioning, premium UI, good battery life, large display size and good camera. I recommend this phone for everyone looking for a budget phone. Have a nice day

  •  Never ever buy a sony xperia phone 31 May 2014

    1/5 stars

    By Priankush Chakraborty

    Never ever buy a sony xperia phone . Its a total faulty device . I bought an xperia c three months back and while talking to my client the phone suddenly died . I tried to restart it with all efforts ranging from hard reset ( followed the procedure stated at sony mobile's website) but it did not helped . Now i have just submitted my phone in my nearest authorized sony service center and the service guy asked a time frame of 3 to 4 days to resolve my issue without even giving a replacement device to use during that time period ......... And now why i said that xperia is a faulty device because there were other customers with the same issue standing in Que .... and i also went through several similar complaints in the internet about this device ...... I have already lost a lot of clients due to this and i don't want others to suffer ...... I think 'll have to buy another device because the service center guy told me that i case of a hardware fault i will get a refurbished one .......
