Finally, I get to hold the new Sony Xperia C4 Dual in my palm! I’ve been hearing the launching of this long awaited selfie phone from Sony, and true enough C4 comes with the latest Android operating system Lollipop version 5.0 and it can be considered one of the best selfie phones in the world today. Moving forward towards the direction of making the world’s best selfie-purposed phone in today’s market, Sony Xperia C4 has put heart into detailed planning and designing for some of the great features for C4.
Firstly, I was wow-ed when I saw the standout Mint color of the phone. It reminded me about the popular color of “Tiffany & Co.”. Well… you know me… I like pastel colors. Hehehe… I’m not sure how many of you out there got the same taste as me? J
As a person that is active with the social media nowadays, the front camera is a very vital component, so to capture the best of me when I “selfie” or “groupfie”. Talking about selfie, the Xperia C4 gave me what exactly I needed! It has a unique soft LED flash for my front camera shot. I would reckon that the terminology “soft” LED refers to skin tone “friendly”. Normally, I had to take in the consideration of the back lighting especially the sun when I do my selfie outdoor. Before the innovation of C4, what I got was just a black, shadow-look of myself when my back was facing the sunlight. But now, C4 naturally illuminates the scene! Check out this outdoor shot taken at Malacca, just next to the river by Jonker Street.
Next, I want to talk about “groupfie”. Sony really came out with a brilliant idea by putting a 25mm wide-angle lens in front! Remember those times that we need to fit and squeeze everybody into the screen taking a groupfie? Now with C4, it can stretch as much as 80-degree field of view for my front shot. Cool right?! J
In my daily life, I am always on my Instagram, checking mine and others’ Facebook, and sometimes I work on my blog. Xperia C4 comes in excellently, providing me a considerably super screen of 5.5 inches! Not only that, it is powered by the legendary Sony BRAVIA Engine of Sony TV technologies! It is just so satisfying to be able to browse the social medias with such large screen in Full HD. It is said to have a screen-to-body ratio of around 70% comparison, very competitive to other selfie phones in the market.
From the good of the large screen, I also got to realize the smooth-ness of it’s processing abilities especially when I surf the web and internet. Why? Because it runs with the advanced 1.7GHz Octa-core processor! Giving me the a lightning-fast optimum performance experience of the C4. The processor is said to be asynchronous. It simply means that each core of the 8 cores is powered up individually and independently. A precise amount of power is given to each core only when necessary. Thus, not wasting its 2600mAh battery power.
I personally think that power banks are becoming necessary for me as an active smartphone user. Sometimes, I felt my 16000 mAh Mi Power Bank is just too heavy when I’m on the go. Worse… when I left it at home! So, it is really good that the C4 comes with options like: Battery STAMINA Mode, Extended Standby Mode, Extended Usage Mode and the Ultra STAMINA Mode that will squeeze out every drop of power for me.
Lastly, I want to highlight its downloadable AR Effects and Themes of Hello Kitty for Xperia C4! So………… Cute! Thanks to the brilliant collaboration between Sony and Hello Kitty weh! How do they know that I'm a fan of Hello Kitty? Hehehe… Unisex, suitable and applicable to both ladies and gentlemen. J
Alright, that is all for now of my review about the Sony Xperia C4. Do check out the demo unit from any of the Sony stores nearby if you’re interested.
