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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
