Don't be misled by false arguments and statements..
06 Oct 2013 By Anshuman Dogra On

Most of the points people have mentioned,while comparing Grand with Xperia C, are completely wrong. So,don't be misled. Following are some of those points-nnA. Processor - MediaTek consumes lesser battery as compared to Qualcomms. Also, you can't compare a 1.2 GHZ MediaTek processor with a 1.5 or 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon. So, let us compare those variants which have same frequency per core say 1.2 GHz. i.e. MediaTek's MT6589 processor versus Qualcomm's MSM8228Q. Please note that Grand Duos doesnt even have a Qualcomm Processor. It has a Broadcomm processor which is inferior to both Qualcomm and MediaTek.nn Comparison - n 1. MT supports full HD video playback while MSM supports HD playback only.n 2. MT supports full HD screen resolution while MSM supports only HD.n 3. MT can support upto 13 MP camera while MSM supports camera only upto 8 MP.n 4. Power Efficiency of MT is higher than MSM.n 5. Cost - A phone having this MT will fall in the range 15k - 16k (I am not talking about brands like XOLO or Lava), while a phone having MSM will fall in the range 18k to 21k.n 6. More Cache memory per core in MT than MSM means better performance.n 7. Heating - MSM generates more heat than MT under similar test conditions.nSo, for a 1.2 GHz per core processor, MediaTek > Qualcomm > Broadcomm.nnB. Unibody design - I personally think that this should not be a criterion while selecting phones. You can't say that don't buy Xperia Z because it has Unibody Design. It's a matter of personal choice. Moreover, you can buy a power bank if you need an extra battery backup.nnC. Buttons on the screen itself - This is not at all a problem. Instead of adding extra hardware for just three buttons, which consumes more battery and may increase the cost, it's better to provide the buttons on the screen itself. And when do we need the full screen display?? While watching movies, pictures etc. or playing games, right? If you have used a Sony phone you must be knowing that these buttons disappear while doing any of the above mentioned things. Plus, how much space of a 5 inch display do you think these buttons will consume??nnD. Front Facing Camera - Yes this has a .3 MP front facing camera which is just a VGA camera. Suppose i provide a 5 MP HD camera in the front. Now while doing video calling, data is transferred and received by the device continuously. If you have watched videos on youtube you must be knowing that to watch a high quality video you need a high speed internet connection. How many people in India use 2G as compared to 3G?? Majority of them, right? What is the max. speed that you can get out of a 2G network? Do you think it'll be good for such a person to buy a phone with a 5MP front facing cam?? I don't think so.. It's only a matter of personal choice again..nnE. Display - Both the Xperia C and Galaxy Grand have TFT displays. Now, i'll roughly explain what is a TFT display? Roughly it contains three layers - a. Top Glass, b. Liquid Crystals layer c. backlight. Now how can Grand's display be better than Xperia C? Top glass will not change anything, liquid crystals are the same. One option is changing the intensity of backlight. Increasing the backlight intensity means more battery consumption. So, if you don't like a TFT display, go for AMOLED or Super AMOLED. If you like the natural colors and sharpness of a TFT, both Xperia C and Grand are equally good. The only way that we can compare these two is on the basis of the ppi. And Xperia C has better ppi than Grand, far better.nn4 GB internal storage is not an issue with Xperia C as you have an option to choose SD card as the default storage for apps etc., which isn't available in Xperia ZR, ZL etc.nnI have 3 phones - Xperia ZR, SP and C, and i have used Grand also. In my view, Xperia C is better than Grand and Xperia SP is better than Xperia C, thanks to Corning Gorilla Glass, Bravia Engine, Exmor Tech., NFC support , 300+ ppi, 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro etc. Xperia ZR is better than all three of them.

Big problem with the "internal storage" Not able to install any apps
26 Jan 2014 By Goverdhan Kothari On

Got this phone for 18k from flipkart - as usual packing of the phone was excellent, flipkart took 4 days to deliver. I initially thought this product is great. When I first started to get the "internal Storage running out error" - i thought, it may be because I do not have the SD card. I got class 10 sony SD card with 32 G storage. It still kept giving me "internal Storage running out error" despite having 32 G memory card, which is less than 10% full and after moving all my apps to SD card. This is the single biggest complaint I have for this phone. Now, I am not able to install any other app. I am having a felling of being locked with this product. I looked up on sony forums on internet and there was no solution available .. Not only is this problem with Sony Xperia C - this is also contagious to other sony phones like Xperia L. Some other pros and cons : nnpros :n1. Size is excellent - some have complained that it could have been smaller. I find it ideal.n2. Sony headphones are excellent .. I used to use Samsung earphone which went into the ear.. The free headphones that comes with it give a premium look and are reasonably good. n3. Sound is okay - i would not say great with speakers. n4. Camera is okay - not great.nnCons :n1. Internal storage is too less - i keep getting alerts about internal memory getting full despite moving all apps to my 32G memory card . Highlighted this in my review earlier. n2. Some apps lag like anything .. I used Notes. After completing one page, the app hangs like anything .. Not sure if this a phone thing or anaroid thing.nnYet to use the dual sim functionality. I initially recommended this phone to others who were going for Samsung - but, now I would rollback my recommendationnnSony folks, if you are listening, please help.
