Reviews for the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra

80% A Big Screen Phone Done Right
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
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 Xperia C5 Ultra review
Source: GSM Arena English
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?

Model: The Sony Xperia C5 Ultra smartphone, which was launched in August 2015, comes with a 6 inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The bezel is very slim creating a near borderless appearance. The Xperia C5 Ultra has a glossy finish, which is more slippery and easily attracts fingerprints. In return, all the controls are placed within comfortable reach. The Sony Xperia C5 Ultra is powered by 1.7 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor with 2 GB of RAM. The phone packs 16 GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 200 GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra packs a 13 MP primary camera on the rear and a 13 MP front shooter. Both cameras features a LED flash.

The selfie camera has an HDR mode, and an automatic scene recognition system makes sure that pictures look their best. It features 22 mm wide-angle lens, and the soft-focus LED flash is specifically designed for close quarter use.

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.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
