Sony Xperia C5 Philippines: The Ultimate Selfie Smartphone

The Sony Xperia C5 ULTRA is hailed as the smartphone that is pro-selfie, in a sense that it inspires you to take a selfie, and it’s a smartphone that is a pro in taking selfies. Why? This is due to its splendid 25mm wide angle lens for its front camera and its LED flash, capturing a wider coverage on your scene, and making it easier to capture even in low light. If you’re the type who is fond of Instagram and snap chat, well this is the perfect companion to step up your SNS experience.

Sony Xperia C5 Philippines - Large Display for Your Viewing Pleasures

A midrange phone that offers great viewing experience, not just for selfies. Its 5.5” IPS display boasts a 1080x720 p resolution, augmented by Sony’s very own mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 technology. The display is sharp and very minimal noise can be noticed, while in terms of color saturation and contrast, it has done a really good job. Another innovative feature injected into this phone’s screen is the Triluminous display technology, which makes the colors look more vivid, bright, yet still natural looking. Overall, the technology that consists the entirety of the screen offers a great brightness and contrast, all resulting to excellent display quality.

Sony Xperia C5 Philippines - 13 Mega-pixel Shooter is a Treat

13 Megapixels has become a standard camera resolution in the midrange market today. However, the real competition when it comes to this aspect of the smartphone is its shooting capability, and that is where the Sony Xperia C5 ULTRA stands out. Its camera carries Sony’s Exmore RS sensor, a feature that allows users to take a clear shot even under lowlight. The LED flash is there to facilitate better lighting when you’re taking the picture where light is not in your favor, however, the ability of the sensor to adapt to lighting conditions would make your photos look natural compared to those taken with the flash on.

Sony Xperia C5 Philippines - Powerful On the Inside

The main processing unit of this smartphone is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Quad-core Snapdragon Chipset. It’s a fast enough processor to run even the most power consuming applications in the Playstore, while at the same time it doesn’t consume your battery real fast and it doesn’t cause the phone to overheat.
