First benchmark results from the selfie-centric Sony Xperia C3 crop up
Described as the "world's best selfie smartphone", the still fresh from its announcement Sony Xperia C3 is one interesting device. But what makes the world's best selfie smartphone? Well, according to Sony -- a front-facing LED flash and a whole bunch of camera software features, applicable to the 5MP front snapper.

Apart from that, the Sony Xperia C3 is, for all intents and purposes, a mid-range device. It's got a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (267 ppi), and is powered by a Snapdragon 400 quad-core chip, ticking at 1.2GHz, and 1GB of RAM. At the back, the C3 sports an 8MP shooter with a Sony Exmor RS sensor, and an agreeable, 2500 mAh cell. 

As you gleaned from the title, this particular configuration has already been put to the (synthetic) test, and, according to AnTuTu's scoring algorithms, it's good for a score of 17703, in-line with devices like the Moto G, the Google Nexus 4, and the Samsung Galaxy S3. In other words, while the C3 is far from a record-setter, we wouldn't exactly be worried about getting our money's worth in terms of performance.
