Paddyman, 21 May 2016HTC are not Chinese, Samsung are not Chinese, LG are not Chinese, all have superior flagships ... moreHTC are still Chinese but not part of mainland China, because they are an independent state called Taiwan. Samsung and Lg are korean but received a lot of European's subsidy, because Europeans invested in Samsung and Lg (aka Euro tech).
Anonymous, 21 May 2016I don't know why people hate this phone especially the price tag.. if you guys tell this phone... moreThat's not true. Xperia x costs £460 isn't even the highest performing midrange. IPhone 6s costs £540 and is at least an actual flagship. Its the biggest rip-off of 2016.
Chrjns, 21 May 2016They should have fired the guy whos in charge of pricing their product... total ignorance!Blame it on the strong dollars against the weak yen.

Xperia is not for everyone to handle. Take it as Rolls Royce, just for premium consumers. So if u can't buy it, just enjoy looking at its greatness.

Typically Sony, once again a brilliant phone ruined by their arrogantly high price decision
Mark, 21 May 2016So another Sony flagship with poor camera performance. I'm amazed how is this possible conside... moreIf you pointing out about the noise its obvious because the more resolution means more space for detail and Noise, downscale it to 12mp (yes, the resolution that both S7 and i6s had for the camera) and you will see that they are comparable.
I don't know why people hate this phone especially the price tag.. if you guys tell this phone overpriced, then how about iphone price tag? or samsung price tag which is far more overpriced than apple? If you want a phone with reasonable price, then grab other brands like xiaomi or lenovo unless you think samsung price tag is reasonable

You choosing to deliberately ignore it is your problem.

Are Apple's products over priced....yes. But the faultless and in many case more readily accessible customer service, plus the value retention and thus resale value go someway to offset that premium.
It's a simple fact that over a given time an iPhone will retain more value than any android, that's just the way it is. You pay £550 for an android and in 6 months try to sell it on, you'd be lucky to get £350 as the prevail price of that device will have likely dropped by as much as £100.
Pay £600 for an iPhone, and in 6 months you could get as much as £550 for it (I know, I've done it).
As for the X's camera samples, they are very good, but I can't see any reason to question GSMarena's conclusions in that area.
It is true the price is high, but when people complaint about the Sony's Pricing and the pay double the amount to iphone without any hesitation is a bit hypocrisy. And As for the Camera, just look at the samples that it produced. They are outstanding, and I have always see when these sites review Sony product, they just dig too much about the technical stuffs and then declare it mediocre. Such stories are never to be found on Samsung's or iphone's reviews.
X is discontinued
Sony? What r u doing
Are u sure that u r on the right track
Return Z by the end of the year u will lose a lot more fans
Lex79, 21 May 2016Playing devils advocate for a sec, I would suggest there's nothing really wrong with this devi... moreYep. If Sony prices their products properly, then they'd do OK. If the battery life of their phones (which used to be their main selling point) didn't decline then I'd fully support them.
Other than those two things the only thing else I could criticise Sony for is that the front of their phone looks awkward and the bezels look bigger than they should be.
Two years ago I don't think any of these things were even problems for Sony.
Anonymous, 21 May 2016Oh yeah, like cheap Chinese craps! Including xiaomi, lenovo, blu and meizu! Buy those cheap ch... moreHTC are not Chinese, Samsung are not Chinese, LG are not Chinese, all have superior flagships cheaper than this midranger. And incidentally, I don't think you can call Chinese manufacturers cheap anymore, their quality, design and specifications are improving every year!
Grey1213, 21 May 2016In reality what's not reasonable is releasing a mid-range that doesn't even have the SD652 and... morePlaying devils advocate for a sec, I would suggest there's nothing really wrong with this device except the price.
It's performance is fine, it's camera is very good, it's battery figures (whilst not mind blowing) are decent enough. The Qvono tech is aimed at long term battery stability more than anything else and only time will tell how effective it is on that front.
This device has the same issue the HTC A9 and the Galaxy Apha before it had, the initial asking price is just too high. Both were good devices in their own right, and after the price had fallen after a few months on the market, both represented good value.
The issue I see is that Sony is not in the position to play this kind of game, neither is HTC for that matter (but that's another topic), Samung is, their market presence is huge and can absorb a few blows here and there.
It would have been far better for Sony to aggressively price this device right out of the gate, in order to try to build market share. A few months from now is no good, the buzz will have worn off and there's always something new on the horizon.
To make matters worse Sony couldn't even see their way to including a quick charger in the retail package, and that's just lunacy. As it is for certain people to claim 'what you are getting for this price is OK'
That's just plain bais talking and makes no sense at all.
