Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

It's a constant struggle with the Sony Xperia C3 Dual to balance my occasion for a large screen and keyboard that accommodate my large fingers, against the occasion for a small size and low weight device that would upgrade mobility. With all the advanced call management possesses present in the Sony Xperia C3 Dual, it is good choice for business users like me.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

For me carrying a phone as big as this Sony Xperia C3 Dual is really inconvenient, even if it bids me simple typing on its large keyboard with properly spaced out alphabets. I keep zooming in on many images and forwards and multi-touch makes this really easy. I never let a special need pass by without recording it, right from cake compromising to dinner parties; and the Sony Xperia C3 Dual with good recording features is really recommended for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Sony Xperia C3 Dual, however good the other boasts of might be. If you have as many photographs and videos on your phone, then you might have to delete a few because within few weeks you will face storage issues. The extendable memory of the Sony Xperia C3 Dual is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones with high internal memory that further is furnished with highly confusing is credited with.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

I get an awesome realistic gaming experience and crystal clear text display with the huge 5.5 inch screen of this smartphone. The multi-touch screen allows me to zoom in or zoom out during a game; further, it feels so real to flick pages of an ebook using my fingers. Although I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming, the 1.2 GHz is not that bad an option. I love the super fast load time and the awesome performance, overall; and all the credit goes to the powerful quad-core processor of this smartphone. It's a real smooth experience with gaming or multitasking on the Sony Xperia C3 Dual with its 1 GB RAM. I can't buy a smartphone that has no storage available for my huge collection of games, even if it can accommodate all my ebooks and apps. If you have gaming and ebook library as huge as mine, you can never say no to an extendable memory storage.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 5.5 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Sony Xperia C3 Dual. And I simply can't stop admiring the awesome screen size and the fantastic videos of the Sony Xperia C3 Dual. Movies and videos on a large screen are the best, the screen type or resolution doesn't matter to me much. Even typing is quite easy on a large screen, although you always occasion both hands to operate it. I can zoom in or zoom out images by with pinching movements of my fingers on the screen of the Sony Xperia C3 Dual. The Multi-Touch technology is too cool as I have the flexibility to rotate images or turn pages of ebook by just flicking my fingers. Yes, 8 MP is not that great camera resolution. If there are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution, then you should choose for it. I don't this smartphone have the flexibility to click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. I can't imagine my smartphone without the secondary camera. I and my friends simply love the selfies and groupies and click hundreds of them. It's sometimes strenous to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. With the 8 GB internal storage I have to chose between which music, movies, videos and images to keep or delete from your phone. It's irritating to delete favourite files from my smartphone due to memory issues, so I always decide on larger internal storage.
