Sony’s Xperia C5 Ultra is the Holy Grail of Selfie Smartphones

While for the most part you can expect the same styling and specs from Sony’s latest Xperia models, there have been some vast improvements made to the camera of the mid-range smartphones. Placing a firm emphasis on photography, the C5 Ultra model houses a twin 13-megapixel front and rear camera, with enhanced front-facing flash and 22cm wide-angle lens, making it the holy grail of selfie devices. The more compact M5 model, meanwhile, which also uses a 13-megapixel front-facing camera, boasts an impressive 21.5-megapixel camera on the rear. The M5 also benefits from being waterproof and dust-tight.


Both devices will be available from mid-August, however, details have not yet been released on their retail price. In the meantime, watch the M5 in action below and check out our feature the 6 apps for taking DSLR-quality images on your iPhone.

DxO ONE Takes DSLR-Quality Photos on Your iPhone

The latest to be announced is the DxO ONE, which takes DSLR-quality photos on your iPhone or iPad. At just under 7 cm tall, and 108g light, the camera is small enough to fit into your pocket, and attaches to your iPhone or iPad via the lightning connector, turning the display into the camera’s viewfinder. Despite its size, the camera is capable of taking crystal clear images thanks to the f/1.8, 32mm equivalent aspherical lens, and comes with an iOS app which allows you to control the individual settings including aperture, shutter speed and ISO.
