Worth Experimenting with Sony Xperia C6?
Sony’s President offered to quit if his pet project Walkman did not sell one Million pieces within a couple of months. But Walkman had a fly start. But that was, decades ago. Now, not even anywhere in the top slots, Sony is launching another Smartphone Xperia C6. The logic of this launch at this juncture seems to be questionable and unrealistic.
On the Technical front

The Sony Xperia C6 with a thinner bezel succeeds model C5, was launched with big advertisement gimmicks. The all-metal design has a round power key. C6 can boast of a better camera, But the poor memory is repulsive and may be a perennial problem. Powered by Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 CPU and PowerVR SGX544 GPU, Xperia C6 is quite adequate on the power front.Xperia C 6 is available in Black, Gold, and Silver colour. Sony’s expertise in optics is clearly visible in the front and rear cameras.
Sony’s flagship mobile Xperia Z6 also has not done much market penetration even with the latest Marshmallow software patch up. With the innovative features, picture quality as well as the performance, Sony Xperia S6 will hopefully see a new trend- well hopefully. With a lot of competition around, this mid-size phone is bound to find the very survival bit tough. The trend shows that the fate of Z6 will haunt the C6 as well.
Pros and Cons
C6 has a Big display (5.0 inch), Rear Camera (8 MP with LED flash & auto focus). Armed with the fast processing (Quad core processor & 1 GB RAM), this sleek and stylish Smart phone has a dual SIM support. This smartphone can be good with playing games. Expandable card memory up to 32 GB is an advantage.
Sony Xperia C6 has a low-resolution display (540 x 960 pixels) and VGA front camera. Cost wise Xperia 6 at $330 is not that competitive. I GB Ram is too short for a present day phone. Lesser innovative features compared to the contemporary phones, make the C6 less desirable.
Features of Sony Xperia C6
Look wise this Smartphone is good. Sony Xperia C wighs just 153 grams andhas 141.5 x 74.2 x 8.9 mm dimensions. The 5.0-inches TFT capacitive touch screen that offers 540 x 960 pixels resolution and 220 PPI pixel density and multi touch up to 4 fingers. Sony Xperia C is powered by Li-Ion 2390mAh battery that offers better talk time as well as standby time.
The tail end
Test drive of Sony Xperia C is not going to be that exciting as expected. Sony Xperia C6 Smartphone definitely has some unique features on software as well as hardware perspective. Sony does not enjoy that old customer loyalty any longer especially in the smart phone base. And the responses and reviews are not that active either. Launching a product at this stage for the heck of launching is sure to boomerang.
