So, before telling us that Apple is one of the best tech brands and its products are worth every dollar, take a moment to look at other brands’ products and you’ll see that they have cheaper and more advanced smartphones. Why buying the iPhone 5C when you can spend almost 200 dollars less on the Xperia Z. And take our words for it: you’ll make a better deal if you’ll choose Sony’s device.
Displays and sizes
The winner of this category is definitely the Xperia Z with its 5inches TFT screen that renders a resolution of 1080x1920pixels. The iPhone 5C might be a fancy phone, but its 4inches LED-backlit IPS LCD screen doesn’t come up to our expectations with the 640x1136pixels resolution.
The Xperia Z is bigger, measuring 139x71x7.9mm and it’s also heavier, weighting 146grams. The dimensions of the iPhone 5C are: 124.4×59.2x9mm, being 14grams lighter.
