Sony E5506 overview

Stay connected on the go with the unlocked Sony Xperia C5 Ultra E5506 16GB Smartphone in black. This smartphone features 13MP cameras with flash on both the front and back for high-resolution self-portraits and more. It's also endowed with a 6" 1080p IPS display for photos, videos, and games. The phone is powered by an octa-core 1.7 GHz ARM Cortex A-53 processor and 2GB of RAM. 16GB of onboard storage can be expanded by up to 200GB via the microSDXC card slot.

The Xperia C5 Ultra has Bluetooth 4.1 built-in for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, and 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi for high-speed Internet connectivity. Integrated Wi-Fi Direct and NFC give you the ability to connect-to compatible devices for wirelessly sharing content like photos and music while FM radio lets you listen to local stations. GPS with GLONASS is also on-board for using Google Location and Maps services. The C5 Ultra has a 2930mAh battery that can deliver over 14 hours of talk time and up to seven hours of video playback.

The Xperia C5 Ultra sports 13MP cameras front and rear, each capturing images with Sony Exmor RS sensors. Both cameras also have integrated HDR, autofocus, and Full HD 1080p video recording. The front-facing camera's wider 22mm-equivalent focal length lets you capture more in every shot, up to an 88° field of view. Both cameras also have square flashes, which light up more of the frame.

A suite of selfie camera functions let you customize your shots. Style Portrait lets you enhance your photo's natural look or add fun effects. AR Mask places a face of your choosing over that of others while you take their picture and can even meld your face with that of your subject in real time. Face In also makes use of both cameras, capturing your reaction as well as what you're shooting.
GSM / 4G LTE Wireless Connectivity
This phone is designed to work on select GSM networks and is 4G LTE capable. LTE is an advanced cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds so fast that they compete with wired broadband internet providers. With an LTE connection, this phone should have no problem streaming HD video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high-speed data connection. The phone is also backwards compatible with 3G and 2G data for instances when you can't get LTE. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Note: Not compatible with all cellular networks. Please make sure your provider uses a frequency or band that this phone supports. You can check which bands this phone works with in the Specifications.
Android 5.0 Lollipop
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 5.0 Lollipop introduces Google's "Material Design" language and sees a complete overhaul of the look and feel of the OS. Other improvements include an updated notification system, more useful multitasking (now called "Recents"), multi-user support, and a Battery Saver mode.
Mini Mode
Even with its large display, the C5 Ultra makes it easy to send text messages one-handed thanks to mini mode: Swipe your finger diagonally to shrink the screen to a more manageable 4". To revert back to normal, just tap mini mode away.
The C5 Ultra's speaker is capable of putting out up to 95 decibels through its built-in speaker. xLOUD loudness enhancement produces rich, deep bass while three ClearAudio+ technologies (Clear Stereo, Clear Bass, and Clear Phase) automatically reduce distortion and improve clarity and balance.
Super Vivid Mode
Super Vivid Mode makes colors more saturated and vibrant than before, enhancing the look of photos and videos.
A 2930mAh lithium-ion battery powers the C5 Ultra for up to two days of normal use. It can play HD video for up to seven hours and music for up to 74 hours.

To make your battery go even further, Extended Standby mode turns off non-essential functions while the display is off. Extended Usage mode increases usable time by up to 14% while Ultra STAMINA mode limits your phone to core functions like calls and SMS to eke out the maximum from its battery.
At 0.3" thick and weighing less than 7 oz, the C5 Ultra is easily portable despite its large screen. Its thin bezel creates a nearly borderless effect and its curved back and aluminum frame enhance its feel and aesthetics.
