Sony Xperia C3 First Impressions

SONY Xperia C3Recently I’ve gotten hold of a Sony Xperia C3 (SingTel, D2533), and I thought it would be interesting if I did a first impression post of it (makes a change from always dealing with MediaTek devices!) since there is no unboxing, as the phone was unboxed at the retail shop itself.

As of the writing of this post, there are some things I would like to note:

  • TF card slot: This device’s TF card slot is a little confusing. It took me a couple of minutes of Googling to realize how the TF card is inserted.
  • ROM: There is apparently a Lollipop update for this device, but upon unboxing, I received the Android 4.4.2 ROM, without a Lollipop update pushed yet. This can wait, as the only root methods available are for 4.4.2.
  • RAM: This phone has 1GB of RAM, which is usually no problem for an Android device, but due to Sony’s massive number of proprietary apps and system services, 90% of RAM is used even on a clean boot.
  • Battery life: This phone got me through 1 whole day despite me playing games and watching YouTube videos. At the end of a day, the battery usually drops only to around 50%, despite it being an only 2500mAh battery. (The THL 5000 lasts one day on heavy gaming, and the P6000 drains in a day on light operations)

That is all the information for now, I will play around with the phone for a little more, and a video review will be uploaded soon to make things easier to understand.

Until next time!
