Overall, it's hard to find a much wrong with the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra Dual. It's amongst the best big screen phones we've come across. The phone was launched in India with a price tag of Rs. 29,990, though it is now available in the market for slightly less. If you are looking for a 6-inch phone, you have other options such as the Asus Zenfone 2 ZE601KL and the Gionee Elife E8 which can be seen as direct competitors to the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra Dual.

Sony's Ultra lineup rarely catches the spotlight. The company has been busy updating its upper-midrange fleet but phablets don't obviously have the mass appeal of their regular phone siblings. Now, if a six-or-so-inch screens are an already small niche and LED-assisted high-resolution wide-angle selfie cameras are arguably even smaller, what about the intersection of these two?

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.
