Built with a 1.2 GHz Quad core Snapdragon MSM8926 400 processor that is clubbed to 1GB RAM, the Sony Xperia C3 Dual SIM operates on an Android 4.4 Operating System (out of the box) with Adreno 305 Graphic Processor unit. This is not a bad addition to a mid range smart phone and packs a powerful charm as opposed to its rivals. The phone is quite the powerful gadget to let the user have a good experience, the gadget is compatible with various applications and games. The phone has an Accelerometer, Proximity sensor as well as a compass and it supports SMS (thread view), MMS, Email, IM, Push Email messaging options.

Display and Design:
The Sony Xperia C3 Dual SIM is just like its alter ego cousin, a reasonably eye pleasing smartphone and contains an Omni balance design and is quite slim (7.6mm). It also has Sony’s near-iconic metal power button on the side and a metallic edging to give it a vaguely premium look. Sony phones have a different charm of their own, they are quietly pretentious and leave the users with less or no complaints.
The body dimensions of the C3 Dual SIM are 156.2 x 78.7 x 7.6 mm and it weighs around 149.7 grams. The IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen has 16 million colors with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution packed in a 5.5-inch screen that has 267-ppi-pixel density. What’s more attractive about this phone is the implementation of Multi-touch features (upto 10 fingers) as well as the addition of the Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 as well as the impeccable Triluminous display. Come to think of all the rival smartphones, this is a stunner. The rear side of the C3 Dual SIM’s body is made out of plastic and it has huge bezels at all the sides of its screen and doesn’t really give the user the feeling of operating a mid range smartphone. The phone will be available in Black, White, Mint colors.
Network and Connectivity:
The Sony Xperia C3 Dual supports 2G, 3G as well as 4G networks and operates on the following bands on both the Sim cards; 2G (GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900), 3G (HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100) and 4G (LTE 700 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600) which is an impressive feat for a device that falls under the mid budget category.

Camera and Multimedia:
Let’s discuss one of the most important features of this unique phone that sets it apart from the rest. The Sony Xperia C3 Dual takes sheer pride in presenting its unique 5-megapixel front facing snapper. This self-proclaimed selfie phone, has more than megapixels to call it a basic camera phone. There is a soft LED flash to ensure that photos are always taken in flattering light, a 25mm wide-angle lens to fit in as many people as possible in the shot and a Superior Auto mode to ensure the settings are always optimally configured. Its rear camera is a little more standard. It has an 8-megapixel sensor, an LED flash, various modes including HDR and panorama and it can shoot 1080p video.
There is more ease than just saying “cheese” taking photos is rather as simple as tapping the screen you can just double-tap the back of the phone to snap away and of course there are some selfie-centric apps, such as ‘Portrait retouch’ which essentially adds makeup and ‘AR Effect mode’ which lets you add fun effects, including masks, hats etc. There aren’t too many phones available in the market that has such beautiful camera functions. The device also has an FM radio with RDS as well as MP3/eAAC+/WAV/WMA/Flac player with video support too, the supported video formats are Xvid / MP4 / 3GP with a H.263/H.264 player.
