Sony jumps on the 'selfie' bandwagon with the Xperia C3

Sony’s latest smartphone has a 5MP front-facing camera with a complementing LED flash

Sony is pandering to lovers of selfie photography with its latest smartphone, the Xperia C3. The 5.5in Android smartphone is armed with a 5MP front facing camera complete with its own LED flash and a 25mm lens.

Photos can be enhanced with a range of shooting modes including 'timeshift-burst', augmented reality animations and Sony's superior auto mode, to name a few.

The rear camera is less impressive than those featured on the Xperia T2 Ultra, the Z1 Compact or Sony’s premium Xperia Z2. The C3 has an 8 megapixel rear camera equipped with Sony’s Exmor RS for mobile imaging sensor.

Sony’s C3 isn’t a small phone with its 5.5in high definition screen, but it is thin with a waist measuring 8mm.

Inside is a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of flash storage. A further 32GB of storage can be added using a microSD card.

Powering the C3 is a 2500 milliamp-hour battery. Connectivity features include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS and 4G connectivity.

Sony has confirmed the Xperia C3 will be made available to Australian retailers and Sony retail stores, but pricing and the date of launch has yet to be disclosed.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
