It’s really unfortunate, that despite being ‘good’ in a lot of aspects, the Sony Xperia C4 Dual is simply not ‘good enough’. It is not a standout brilliant performer, the front camera seriously lags, talking on calls became an issue because of the down-firing microphone, and if you are quoted a price of around 23k, you would rather shout, ‘OnePlus!’

What's best about the Xperia C4 and, coincidentally, what's its major drawback, can both be found on page 3 of this review. It's hard to find fault with the 5.5-inch 1080p display - the panel boasts high brightness and contrast, and has great viewing angles. Scroll down to battery life and you'll see the Xperia C4 fail miserably and die after 5 and a half hours of video playback. The front camera produces rather disappointing images for its high-res sensor, but the front flash is there to save the day - many a club shots will turn out better with this one than with most flagships on the market. The primary camera does a good job, so long as you steer clear from the unreliable Superior Auto mode.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
