Sony Xperia C3 vs Samsung Grand 2


Sony Experia C3 vs Samsung Grand 2 comparison

Design and Display:

Th Sony Experia C3 features a 5-inch display with a 720 x 1280-pixel resolution with a pixel density of 267 ppi. While the other hand rival, The Grand 2 features a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED with same 720 x 1280-pixel resolution with the pixel density of 267 ppi. That means that both the gadgets have same screen size with the same pixel density and the image resolution.

The C3 experia gives you slightly more screen space, not only because it’s fractionally larger, but because the 816 has on-screen controls.


The C3 experia features a 1.2GHz Quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8928 with ARM Cortex-A7 chips inside and a Adreno 305 GPU with a 1535 MB of RAM. While the Grand 2 Neo features a 1.7 GHz 6 core, ARM Cortex A-7  chip Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 8226 with the same Adreno 305 GPU  as well as 2048 MB of RAM. Which means that the Grand 2 has more RAM than its rival 816 and offers more space than the other one. But when we work on the phones then we found that the 816 takes a lead in terms of processor speed. So the 816 has an advantage over Grand 2.


The C3 experia features 8 GB of on-board ROM. And the phone is  supported with a external SD card Slot with 128GB of expendability. A 12 GB and 60 GB of free Google Drive space is also given along with the ROM options. While the grand Neo features 16 GB on-board storage and with an external storage of 64 GB via external SD card slot. A 50GB of free cloud storage through Dropbox for 2 years is also provided. This means that both the phones have same internal storage and are compatible for an external SD card slot.


The C3 experia features the same UltraPixel sensor (f/2.0 aperture) found in the original desire phones, although it’s a better all-round performer than before. It also has a Duo Camera for depth perception which means that there’s a range of fancy features on offer and 2-megapixel (f/2.0 aperture) front-facing camera which is good for selfies. But the front camera is not an HD version.

On the second half, the grand 2 features a 8-megapixel sensor with fast 0.8 second capture speed. The grand Neo camera is also known for the best photography so the grand 2 takes the lead in terms of camera. The Note 3 Neo smartphone can also capture Ultra HD video, something the C3 experia is incapable of and there are a range of smart functions, including “selective focus” which produces similar to C3 experia without the additional lens. This new added features lets you choose over grand 2.

Operating System:

The C3 experia features Android 4.4 KitKat and Sense 5.5. The grand 2 features Android 4.4 KitKat and a new version of TouchWiz. Both have same operating systems but the grand 2 has a bigger advantage of the Android 5.0 lollipop update. So the Grand 2 leads in operating system over HTC Desire 816.


The C3 experia features a 2100 mAh battery that is supposedly 40 per cent more efficient than the first xperia phone, which could last up to two days with 2G services. However experia c3 has added aggressive power saver options to make sure your device lasts the distance and it’s very impressive.

The grand 2 features a 3000 mAh battery that will get you through the day. It also offers power saving features to match those of Note series phones. Both devices are a step above the previous generation, giving much better endurance. But in  battery terms the grand 2 takes the lead as it has additional features than xperia.

Conclusion whether which one is the best:

samsung grand 2 vs  sony experia c3


The C3 experia features a machined aluminium body that wraps around the sides making for a 90 per cent metal finish. There will be many colors available: Black, Gray, Pink, Yellow, Green, Blue, Red, White. It’s a triumph of design, it looks stunning and feels sensational to hold.

The grand 2Â is mainly plastic, sticking to familiar design, but with a more tactile back for better grip. The big positives are that it is dust proof and resistant in liquid down to a metre in depth, and it’ll be available in colours of-Black, Pink, White, Gold.

The C3 experia feels like the slicker device in daily use. The user interface is faster and although it has less options and features, the interface feels more sophisticated and mature. It offers class-leading sound quality, a great display, but the real winner is the design. In the battle of these two giants, grand Neo takes it, but only just.

The Grand 2Â offers a wider range of features and comes with great connectivity, a stunning display, plenty of power and a camera that performs well. However it feels like it could be faster in daily use and the unique features of the heart rate sensor and fingerprint scanner may well get turned off and ignored.


As per price, the C3 experia is available at Rs 16,990 INR and the Samsung grand 2 is available in India at a price tag of 12,000 INR.
