Description

The Sony Xperia C4 is equipped with a front cam that's based around a 5MP sensor, a wide-angle (25mm wide) front camera lens, and a "soft" LED flash. Of course, this is a Sony phone, so not all the action is up front. The rear camera is a 13MP unit driven by Sony's own Exmor sensor. One-upping the newly announced Xperia Z4 by 0.3 inches, the Xperia C4 has a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD display, complete with Sony's TV imaging technologies - Bravia engine and super vivid mode. The selfie phone doesn't compromise on design either, employing that beautiful glass and aluminum build. Sony didn't make this one water and dust-proof, but hey, at least the screen is scratch-resistant! On the hardware side, an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU (probably the MediaTek MT6752) runs the show, aided by an ARM Mali-T760 GPU and 2GB of RAM. A 2600mAh battery is crammed in, providing at least eight hours of video playback according to Sony.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

  • FCC measured SAR:

    FCC measured SAR - Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
