The Sony Xperia C5 Ultra and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ are two big-sized smartphones that have been released last year. Today we’re going to compare them and let you decide which one of these two handsets would look better in your hands.


The Xperia C5 Ultra measures 164.2×79.6×8.2mm and weights 187 grams. Sony uses a specific design for its Xperia models and it’s sticking to it. The back of the C5 Ultra is made of glass (which is prone to fingerprints), the frame is made of metal and the corners are built from plastic. Unfortunately, the dust and water resistance is not available for this big phablet. The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is thinner and lighter as it measures 154.4×75.8×6.9mm and weights 153 grams, but uses the same glass and metal combination.


The Xperia C5 Ultra has an IPS LCD display of 6-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 367 ppi and it’s protected by a scratch-resistant glass. The Galaxy S6 Edge+ comes with a smaller super AMOLED display of 5.7-inch that supports a higher resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 518 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM

The Xperia C5 Ultra features a Mediatek MT6752 chipset, an octa-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, a Mali-T760MP2 graphics card and 2GB of RAM. The Galaxy S6 Edge+ has an Exynos 7420 Octa chipset, an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.5GHz and a Cortex A57 processor clocked at 2.1GHz, a Mali-T760MP8 graphics card and 4GB of RAM.


The Xperia C5 Ultra comes with an internal storage of 16GB, which you will be able to expand up to 200GB using a microSD card. On the other hand, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ has been released in two internal storage variants of 32GB and 64GB, but it doesn’t offer a card slot for storage expansion.


The Xperia C5 Ultra sports a primary camera of 13MP (located on the rear side of the device) that features LED flash, autofocus, geo-tagging, touch-focus, face detection, HDR, panorama and a powerful secondary camera of 13MP (found on the front side of the phablet). The Galaxy S6 Edge+ has a primary camera of 16MP with OIS, autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, face detection, auto HDR, panorama and a secondary camera of 5MP.


Both devices come with non-removable batteries and their capacities are similar. The Xperia C5 Ultra houses a smaller battery of 2930 mAh, which means that it will be drained faster than the 3000 mAh battery of the Galaxy S6 Edge+.
