HigherPrimate, 24 May 2016the only bad thing about this phone is the price, everything else i like :)For what it offers, even the price is OK with me
Cameras perform better than flagships,
Has h.265 native support which flagships dont,
has ldac support,
Has Dual stereo speakers and hi res sound,
has qnovo battery equal to flagships,
Medium SoC is even better than sd808,
UI works flawlessly...
Its a really, really good phone
Oh, this midranger has h.265(HAVC) support in video playback and video recording :-)
Means it can record and run 4k video natively
Means you can just download and use any 4k video recording app from playstore....
None of flagships have that....
the only bad thing about this phone is the price, everything else i like :)
LLL, 20 May 2016An HTC would feel much more worth it in the face of this and its price.And htc has a way better aftersales service than sony

And this phone sc... moreIf anything is not hood as per your opinion then why you wasting your time here everyone knows Sony Xperia is not famous for hanging issues like Samsung, Sony IA famous for best battery, Sony is the onky brand who provide camera sensors to 60% mobile manufacturer, no one able to compare sony's Walkman music player.
Dear as per the daily uses Sony is the best phones
-1080p is alright but its CHEAPER, its only for midranger or cheap flahship. And this phone screen quality isnt good, it cant recover from burn like other phone, i think it cost only half of LG 2K quantum dot ips, no way 1080p is costier than 2K.
-3gb ram is alright for light modded ui, its smooth enough but again its CHEAPER(fact), theres no way 3gb ram is costier than 4GB LPDDR4 RAM.
-Plastic construction with metal back is CHEAPER (fact)
- SD650 is cheaper than sd652 and far cheaper than 820 (fact), Sony fan will say its good enough, but again its CHEAP.
-UI. They only change icons, lockscreen, cheap. Everything is still stock. If its smooth its google who deserves credits.
The fact is its cheaper in almost everything. And miles cheaper overall.

Its like If you watch a movie with 1080p and your phone supports 4k , you still get the 1080p, it's simple Engineering for you to understand. Let's go back to real life and discuss about when you said "Display is far more important than you seem to think", One day I was at the market and I saw LG4, I simply hold it with my own hands and started to compare it with the Sony Z4 screen. It was obviously uncomparable. The clearance of and the pure colors were basically sharp and stunning for Z4. Thats why I'm surprised how could sony still upgrade the 1080p screen and make it better with every single new device they announce. Here when we talk about the quality of Sony. Btw, for 5 inch screen, 1080p is all what you need.
No need to talk about Samsung because I only saw fake colors on that phone.( I still have galaxy Note3)
It seems endless conv. I got your point of needing of the biggest and biggest and biggest of every aspect without measuring each one by whether it's important.
So Good luck!

YouTube does support 1440p resolution, and display is far more important than you seem to think. On the other hand, the number of pixels in the Sony camera cause it to create a lot of noise and artefacts, I'd rather have a lower resolution camera with bigger pixels and not have to deal with Sony's poor camera processing.
Htc10 may have poor battery but it at least has a premium design, and it costs the same amount as the xperia x which is a midrange.
G5 has the modularity concept, and again, the xperia x midrange costs the same amount.
These phones also have standard flagship features like 4k recording, 1440p display, and 4gb ram. The x performance doesn't even have these things, let alone the x which is the same price as them despite being midrange.
If the xperia x performance was already out and was the same price, then it could compete with the htc10 and g5. It still wouldn't be able to compete with the s7 though, which is better in almost every regard.
leonard80, 23 May 2016Ok I will tell you..
First of all I'll stick with the x performance since you mentioned it..
... more- 1080p is more than enough, it's not like sony reached it's limits!! just 9 months ago they were showing off with absolute "4K screen", while others were bragging with their QHD screens. For me I wasn't excited about that 4K screen as much when I went crazy for the enormous 23mp rear camera that is usable and needed.
-by numbers and facts, they gave us everything new. its a new generation phones that X Series comes with, see the display its way better than Z5 more clean more pure colors and for the camera its way better than z3 and how about the new design that fits perfectly in your hand as every reviewer said!! as you mentioned Apple, what did they gave us since iPhone 4? I was using iPhone 3G and iPhone 4, but after that I was sorry to say goodbye to Apple ( I am still so pro with their great Macbook). They still use the same camera of iPhone5, and how about the RAM?2GB? but it's still not that bad as long as they give you the best of the "little" they support. After that I went for the plastic note (I don't want to mention which brand because its not our subject), and with just one drop "by mistake", I knew I did a mistake by getting cheap device. since then I am using Sony phones and all I could say thanks sony for giving us solid unique phones, that we could use with self confidence.
Grey1213, 23 May 2016Design is poor. The front looks clunky and awkward and despite not having off screen keys it h... moreyou just mentioned it, the front stereo speaker is why Xperia X has those bezels which are not too bad. Everyone likes the looks of an iPhone, and you say they have same bezels amounts! So! Nowadays, all other brands have the same shape as iPhone "Super rounding", Sony has it's own unique shape, but with "Fresh Design". For me, I like sharp design feels more elegant.
The battery is better than HTC 10 and LG G5 when they are flagships and Xperia X is a midrange phone, let's wait for X Performance and see the reviews then. It's Qnovo Tech though!
I see photos and watch youtube videos, almost all of them need 720p or 1080p as highest resolution!! Users are so content with 1080p. and as you just mentioned iPhone, do u know that we are in 2016, and all an iPhone can support is "720p"!!!
on the camera side, gentleman they gave you 13 megapixels front camera while other phones still struggling with 12 mp rear camera!!! As I said they would give you what you are going to use, it's rare to use QHD screen, but you would need the 23 mp rear camera for precious moments.
But I agree with you by saying its coming out so late, they made us thirsty last February when they announced the X series and still didn't find its way through market, trust me because I know how much quality sony phones are, I am waiting for them to reach the market as soon as possible.

absolutely everything is poor....
Just because its a Sony phone.
Hey, you forgot to mention that design flaw too:
Xperia engraved logo is so poor too, it peels off at 22 celsius...
Oh, and dont forget the lens cover, its so poorly poor it scratches just by giving it a look
RAM chips also fall out through headphone jack if you shake an Xperia too much...
Its just... Poor phone.
You bashers are...really becoming pathetic.

Reaper, 23 May 2016I am sorry to tell you I see no wrong with Sony. Till now, I get all what they claim to give i... moreOk I will tell you..
First of all I'll stick with the x performance since you mentioned it..
1.)it's still 1080p,and I know people will say that qhd is not a must in phones,and you might not notice any difference, but I disagree...you will notice and besides there is vr now..you can't do that with 1080p
2.)Sony hasn't brought any serious update since the z3..except changing the processor and reducing the battery capacity..
3.)Sony has the the best optics,but thier camera is always plagued by software issues.
4.)and by the time the x performance is released iphone 7 will be released, same with the samsung note 6..
Btw what's the big difference between the x performance and the x???its not like the x performance shoots 4k..

Battery life is relatively poor compared to Samsung or Sony's older phones.
Display is only 1080p and LCD screens are vastly overshadowed by amoled in 2016, even Apple is switching to amoled.
Camera is poor, too much artefacts and noise.
Chipset is poor, only sd650 with only two high performing cores and 4 low a53 cores from last year. Only 3gb ram
Price is higher than 2016 flagships. And the x performance is only coming out after the sd823 is out and would be much more overpriced with nothing to show for it.
On the other hand overall the camera isn't too bad and it has front facing speakers. Obviously not worth the price tag though.

Till now, I get all what they claim to give in their new chapter (X series), Design + Camera + Battery life and quality. It's all what we need when we use a phone as human being, and if you want a performance, there is "X Perf" with SD820. I tried to figure out what's wrong with Sony but I couldn't, would you please help my mind knowing the issue?
Even if I got struck on my head real hard,and got amnesia,I still wouldn't consider this phone talk less of buying it..
There's something wrong with Sony. .am not a brand loyalist but most of you would agree with me that there is something wrong with Sony. .it's sad
