Being a Mid-Range Smartphone it has a Stiff Comparision with Samsung Galaxy Grand, HTC Desire 500,Micromax Canvas 4 and Xolo Q1000s but below i have done a comparision of branded phones between Sony Xperia C vs Samsung Galaxy Grand vs HTC Desire

Lets us find out why should you buy Sony Xperia C and what makes it a preferred choice.
First have a look at what Xperia C has to offer

Sony Xperia C Samsung Galaxy GrandHTC Desire 500

Front Camera .3 MP Camera2 MP Camera1.6 MP Camera
In-Built Memory 4GB8GB 4GB
Battery2330 mAh2100 mAh1800 mAh

PROCESSOR : MediaTek consumes lesser battery as compared to Qualcomms.If you are not aware then I would tell you that Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos doesnt even have a Qualcomm Processor. It has a Broadcomm processor which is considered to be sub-standard to both Qualcomm and MediaTek.

Screen Size : 5 Inch Screen that too of SONY which has a consistency of providing world class clarity and performance in Display Screen whether it is TV or Smartphone
qHD Screen is an added Advantage in Sony Xperia C

CAMERA : Camera is capable of Capturing 1080p (Full HD) videos where as most phones are capable of only 720p
If you are looking at .3 MP as a Minus Point then think yourself once that how many times you have done a Video Call from your Smartphone. Frankly Speaking i have never done it even though i have a 3G connection.If you use a 2G connection then whether is 2 MP or .3 MP doesn’t make sense because the transfer in video calling is too high and it alteast requires 3G connection. Try Watching Youtube videos on 2G Connection and answer would be in front of you.

MEMORY SPACE : 4 GB in-built Memory is a problem because user accesible memory is after OS and default applications, the remaining space in internal memory is less than 1 GB. I truly consider this as a minus point but the answer is provided by google play. You can download app2share which can transfer from In-built Memory to MicroSD Card

BATTERY : Battery is the most amazing thing of this phone which is presently unable to get in Mid-range smartphones

With all the above specifications and comparison i feel if your budget is around Rs20000 then you should go ahead with Brand Sony's Xperia C

Xperia C is priced at Rs 20005 on Flipkart and Rs 18809 on Amazon
