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.

Sony E5306 reviews

Xperia C4 E5306 16GB Smartphone (Unlocked, White) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sony Xperia C4 Android Smartphone. I bought this phone to replace a Samsung Galaxy SIII and it's doing fine. I'm not a heavy smartphone user, but I do want the features when I need them, and this phone provides all that I need. I especially like that the battery gives me a couple of days between charging, and it charges really fast. The downside is that you can't replace the battery. I replaced the battery on my old SIII a couple of times, but I had to charge it twice a day, so that hassle is now gone. The only downside is that if you have the Sony phone lying on its back on a table, you can barely hear it ring since the speaker is on the back. It's fine when it's in your pocket. Call clarity is good. I'm having trouble getting it to synch with the Bluetooth in my Toyota Camry, but it synched just fine in my Subaru Outback. The price from B&H was excellent, and delivery was in one day with free shipping. I'm very happy with the phone, and definitely would buy one just like it again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointment. Bought this phone as replacement for my Xperia z ultra that fell and got a broken screen but it has been disappointment after disappointment. Right now the other person can only hear me if the phone is in safe mode and this is very annoying it work good one day and the next it doesn't. The phone looks good excellent sound quality when it works and proper weight for its size. If I ever get it working right, I will give another review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value For Money I'm very pleased with my Experia C-4. And I'm especially happy that I was able to upgrade the phone to Android 6 Marshmallow directly, using the 'Sony Experia Companion' App. on my Computer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but with minor problem This is a good phone. However, it seems not compatible with my car's hands free phone connection. My car dealer helped to work on it for a few hours but still can not fix it.
