Sony Xperia C3 Review: First Impressions


The Sony Xperia C3 is designed with the selfie enthusiast in mind. But even if that's not you it's still a solid all-round handset.

+ Great front camera ; + Slim build ; + Solid battery life

- Low pixel density ; - Selfie-centric ; - Plastic body

The Sony Xperia C3 is a solid all-round handset. It might be sold on its selfie abilities (and with good reason) but it’s got other stuff going for it too, including good battery life, a large screen, a slim build and a reasonable amount of power.
