Disadvantages of Xperia C3
- Hardware Specs – The phone is operating on a 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor with 1 GB of RAM. These specifications are alright for a budget smartphone but the price that the user is paying for this smartphone doesn’t quite justify the hardware that the phone has. At this price range, the RAM could have been better. 1 GB RAM is too low when we look at the other phones in this price range.
- Pixel Density – The pixel density of the screen is really low. The screen has a pixel density of 267 ppi which is very low for a 5.5-inch screen. This could have been made better.
- Weight – The phone is a bit on the heavier side. It weighs more than 150 grams which is a bit heavy when we compare it with the other phones in the market.
- Size – The screen might come as really nice when using the phone, but when you have to carry it in your pocket then it might be difficult because of its large size. So this can count as a disadvantage of Xperia C3.
- HDMI port missing – The phone doesn’t have an HDMI port which could have come really handy given the camera features of the phone. An HDMI port could have ensured watching the images and recorded videos on an HD Television.
