6 Best things about Sony Xperia C5 Ultra

1. Maximum display space

Thanks to the maximum screen-to-body ratio, the Xperia C5 Ultra has a maximum display screen for your browsing. Everything would look good on this screen, especially media files like movies, games, pictures etc.

2. Best selfie camera sensor

The Xperia C5 selfie camera, as well as that of its predecessor Xperia C4 features beautiful 13MP resolution. If you have used an Xperia smartphone, you would know what I mean by how good it can be. Especially when the previous high-end Xperia Z2 only has a 2MP front camera but already produced very nice pictures.

3. High quality build

Although the device has a plastic body, it is carefully made and looks firmly decent on your hands. Physical button offer the best it could, contributing to the device premium feels.

4. Multiple window display

Thanks to the big display space, you can actually operate many apps the same time. For example, you can surf on the internet, and watch your favorite movie at the same time, isn’t it cool?

5. Decent battery capacity

A battery test conducted by GSMArena has proved that the Xperia C5 Ultra can work continuously 7h 15 minutes when surfing on the internet or watching movies. It is pretty good for a 2930 mAh capacity.


6. Beautiful design with thin bezel

With very slim bezels on the rears, the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra looks visually premium and classy, making it feel great on your hand and suitable to be a business-like accessory.

However, like most things, beside their good points, the Sony Xperia C5 clearly has its weaknesses. They are there because nothing is perfect, and they contribute to the factors that decide whether it is a suitable smartphone for you or not. 

3 drawbacks to be improved about Sony Xperia C5 Ultra

1. Over heating caused by camera

Though not powered by Snapdragon 810, the successor of C4 selfie does encounter over heating problem. This is especially clear when you use camera or other media apps like gaming, movie, internet surfing by 3G for a while.

2. Lack of double tapping function

Attractive as it may seem, the Xperia C5 does lack some basic functions that many users love. For instances, it doesn’t support double tapping to light up the screen.

3. Finger print on the back

While the lower-end smartphone Xperia M4 Aqua has a protecting glass on the back, the C5 does not. With a plastic cover, it is quite easy for the C5 Ultra to show your fingerprint on it. It is also easy to be scratched if not carefully protected by extra casing.
