Sony Xperia C created with Sony engineering expertise, this dual SIM smartphone offers a large 5(12.7 cm) qHD display with a 540 x 960 pixel screen resolution for a viewing experience that’s absolutely amazing. Images are sharp, crisp and bright, allowing you to enjoy every detail of every scene to the fullest.

Xperia C was created using the same expertise and components as leading Sony cameras. It comes with an 8 MP camera with Exmor R, which lets you take exceptional pictures, even in challenging light conditions. And with HDR for photos, your subject looks as bright as you remember, even when backlit. Xperia C also has a dedicated camera key that can shoot from a locked screen, and a fast-capture function that goes from sleep to snap in under one second.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology used to capture clear photos against strong backlight. With HDR, your Android smartphone captures the same image at different exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo. And thanks to HDR for video, you can film in high contrast situations. You get great footage, even if your subject stands in front of a window or the setting sun.

Sony Xperia C Android smartphone offers a camera that allows you to take amazing self-portraits. Switch on the self-portrait function and let the intelligent voice-guide tell you where to stand, ensuring that your face is perfectly focused inside the frame. And since the self-portrait engine takes pictures using the main camera, the picture quality will always be excellent. Want to make that self-portrait all the more stunning? Turn on the portrait retouch and watch your portrait become flawless. For a picture perfect you – every time.

Who says you have to have an NFC-enabled TV in order to mirror your smartphone on the big screen? Or to go from headphones to speakers? Instead, you can “Throw” content from your Bluetooth smartphone to your Wi-Fi-enabled TV through screen mirroring or DLNA, or send your tunes to a speaker via Bluetooth. Using “Throw”, a smart application integrated into your Xperia apps, your smartphone finds the best way to wirelessly connect to other devices. Or why not use a Miracast™ Wireless Display? It lets you wirelessly stream your smartphone to your TV over Wi-Fi.

Sony Xperia C has a powerful Quad-core processor. This advanced processor gives you maximum performance and speed. Run multiple apps simultaneously, surf the web with shorter loading time, and stream videos without a break.

Smartphones use a lot of power, even when you’re not actively using them. All those apps that you have on your Android™ smartphone may still be running in the background, draining your battery. Battery STAMINA Mode saves you wasted battery drain. It recognises when you’re not using your display and automatically turns off the functions you don’t need, while keeping the notifications you want. As soon as you press the power button to wake up your screen, everything is up and running again.
