in spite of what you are saying sony does makes profits out of their mobile division (around 20%) because it has been established as the android premium brand and (obviously) people are willing to pay a premium for sony phones. the x is indeed hugely overpriced but its price is going to be around half, come christmas, maybe sooner. (for instance the m5 and z3 cost below 280 euro).
[deleted post]Trust me, this is the best review X can get. Sony invited them to tokyo and give them an x for review unit. Ofcourse sony asked for good review. They did their best, but they just cant lie.
For example, battery life. They just can give it 100h, bcz people will prove it wrong. Then they are no more reliable.
The vrge will have more honest review.
[deleted post]Maybe DxOmark will, maybe they won't.
But you spend the last several months disrespecting DxoMarks conclusion by calling their current highest rated camera phones (namely the S7 and HTC 10) crap as far as their photography quality goes.
Yet before that your were DxO's best friend when the Z5 was on top.
So why would their opinion suddenly count again if they were to rate the Xperia X higher???
Your bias has backed you into a corner on this front Tann, and that's made you look like an absolute hypocrite.
another overpriced sony stinker. another half billion $ loss for the mobile division? LOL

One of THE more important innovation that Xperia X brings
Funny that, isnt it?
Kg Htet, 21 May 2016You all should try this X in person to know what it really is_ somehow the reviews are just of... moreTrue. Changing to metal build...no more glass breaking
And Xperia is...just Xperia....
most feature rich and best looking multimedia apps with most complete feature package for a phone.
Nexus and Motorolas phones come close, but not such good native apps and features
Overall Xperias are best android based packages IMO.
They do price it though.
Being expensive though doesnt change the fact its best in its class.... ;-)
I just say sayonara sony for so many year i used....now i have samsung phone (as a fan i really disappointed)

So i wouldn't say, Sony will never exit mobile world.
Aqua24, 21 May 2016Sony like all Japanese electronics manufacturer can no longer compete against the Koreans and ... moreSad but true.
Sony Mobile will end up like Sony Ericsson.
They continue to produce mediocre over-priced phones. (Exactly what SE was doing before the split)
the X series already lost even before the fight begins, reason:
1. Time to market too slow (Sony's major problem over the years) while spec is not the best. Competitors have sold tens of millions when Sony products actually become available to market. Fail to capture most revenue and profit.
2. Priced way too high then later reduced significantly, buyers will wait a few months so again fail to capture revenue.

Iphone 5 and 5s have better camera than this flop expensive device.
If you really love xperia brand, you should buy Xperia Z2, Z3 Z5 or the M5.
This is the end of Sony Mobile.
They have very bad reputation in terms of camera and still tgey didn't fixed it upto now.
Sorry for my bad english. I'm Indian
Sony like all Japanese electronics manufacturer can no longer compete against the Koreans and Chinese manufacturers not only in price but soon in innovation. Its a matter of time before Sony exit the mobile phone business.
RABFW, 21 May 2016Truth my z3c heats up too quickly whenever recording 4kOnly thing heating is Sony's sales. Hehe
