Sony jumps on the 'selfie' bandwagon with the Xperia C3

Sony’s latest smartphone has a 5MP front-facing camera with a complementing LED flash

Sony is pandering to lovers of selfie photography with its latest smartphone, the Xperia C3. The 5.5in Android smartphone is armed with a 5MP front facing camera complete with its own LED flash and a 25mm lens.

Photos can be enhanced with a range of shooting modes including 'timeshift-burst', augmented reality animations and Sony's superior auto mode, to name a few.

The rear camera is less impressive than those featured on the Xperia T2 Ultra, the Z1 Compact or Sony’s premium Xperia Z2. The C3 has an 8 megapixel rear camera equipped with Sony’s Exmor RS for mobile imaging sensor.

Sony’s C3 isn’t a small phone with its 5.5in high definition screen, but it is thin with a waist measuring 8mm.

Inside is a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of flash storage. A further 32GB of storage can be added using a microSD card.

Powering the C3 is a 2500 milliamp-hour battery. Connectivity features include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS and 4G connectivity.

Sony has confirmed the Xperia C3 will be made available to Australian retailers and Sony retail stores, but pricing and the date of launch has yet to be disclosed.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
