It is unbelievable how many trolls and haters here!!
Just for starters:
Xperia X Performance gets 137k on antutu overal benchmark score:
It tops graphic benchmarks in 1st place.
Therefore it deserves the PERFORMANCE monicker.
It HAS best camera duo setup, as seen in comparisson tool:
It has best soundsystem,
with stereospeakers and...., with excellent volume for a stereo, which most flags do not have
It has excellent ips lcd screen(no burn ins), one comparable in vividness only to oled, with excellent contrast and blacks,
It has average batterylife in video and browsing, but no doubt one of best in standby...
But it is best quality battery in any phone due to qnovo.
So yes, THE BEST android phone at the moment.
I can't believe it... They are not charging less and they are cutting on RAM, low resolution screen, smaller battery etc. Coming from a Xperia Z1, I'm telling u that their phones are great and sturdy, but why pay so much a premium when competitors can offer more at a cheaper price? Branding? Honestly, people who say that prolly have nothing better to say because branding is an imaginary difference manufacturers instil in us.
Btw, just so u guys know, not only did they scrape the Stamina Mode from XZ1, they also took away Manual Mode on the camera app. Basically, that downgraded a 21 MP shooter to an 8 MP shooter cause Superior Auto only allows for 8 MP max.

Go out from your country and see how terrible sony`s after sales services in many countries. Pathetic, worse than samsung.
Why . . . . Why . . . Whyyyyyy cant they get their camera quality right . I simply do not understand what is happening in their test labs . Why cant they get their camera software right ? . I would love to try a sony phone if they get their price right and atleast a competitive camera . Sad
Paddyman, 19 Jun 2016Nice comparison! Are you mad? Apple followers live in a different universe, they're more than ... more"Apple followers live in a different universe, they're more than happy to pay for mediocrity."
Sure if mediocrity is:
1.winning every blind comparison against Sony on photography(and video).
2.Better display in every measurable way over Sony
4.The same endurance in real life usage despite having "only" 1800mAh
Strangely what is mediocrity
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2016The os excuse might have worked the first year or two for Apple but no way does it count now. ... moreI will jump the first part of your reply as dont know what are you talking about.Crashes,security issues?!?Sure :D Next...
Second: OS development IS main part of the game.Google has its own expenses,its a little dirty secret....I will tell you,but you must tell no one ....pshhhh (ADWARE)
Next.I have seen roms made from couple of developers which are better than Sony's.
Third:there is no right or lack of there off,for some phones to cost very high.The cost of components for the flagship is more or less the same (just north of 200$).Everything else is R&D,marketing,support... etc etc
At least with Apple you are seeing everything of this.
Sagittarius, 19 Jun 2016Why so much hate for Sony? Are you a Sony fan that got hurt a lot about the pricing? Jealous, ... moreYou sony fans need to stop acting like it's all sony hate while pretending you all are not the haters.
Goping to a sony page is just as bad as going to an iphone page. A bunch of unrealistic claims and over compensating love towards sony and hatred of others.
And always claiming how much better sony is.
You guys even make up crap to start flame wars. Like even if someone like sony but they say one thing that is not as good on am xperia, or needs to improve, or mentions one thing better about others...especially samsung because you have the hardest time exposing samsung is simply more advanced in the mobile department.....but not even saying samsung is better...just something they like...
One of you will freak out! And you flame the person going on and on sounding like an apple fan.
Then one after an other other sony fans see the flame and start talking about fanboys and trolls and start going on about how sony is so amazing and completely making up assumptions on which other company to talk smack on when it was not even the point or that company. And again especially samsung the same way now you can't accept that the S7 is simply overall more advanced.
But the problem is that nobody even had to say that our even mention samsung..and you have a whole line of replies all going on like that.
And most of them never even read the first couple posts to realize that was never the issue....they just saw that first flame and they all react like a hive mind. And the few that did read it are such extreme fans that they react the same way.
It's sad and pathetic.
Dual heatpipes, 19 Jun 2016nice comparison.Nice comparison! Are you mad? Apple followers live in a different universe, they're more than happy to pay for mediocrity. Sony are in direct competition with Samsung, HTC, LG etc not to mention the new Chinese upstarts. The X range are not bad handsets, and I don't believe anyone with half a brain would say they are, but they are simply overpriced and under speced against other manufacturers handsets. After all you pay your money and you take your choice, how many people would choose X performance over S7, HTC 10, LG G5 etc at the same price? Not many I guess, and thats why people like me, who actually want Sony to succeed get really wound up by their pricing and marketing strategy.
Phinch88, 19 Jun 2016short fat girl? then why does the xperia x have a beter body to screen ratio than the iphone 6... moreBecause they left out the part where hort and fat girls can still be attractive. And as for the screen to body ratio is because it's more like she is a very well curved and figured girl
Colin Christian, 19 Jun 2016...I don't understand why people hate sony ??? For price ? for 3 gb ram other have 4 gb ??? Wh... moreYou are wrongly assuming that all ppl comparing Sony to iPhone which is not in my case.
And yes their phone over priced compared to Samsung or LG which are selling overpriced phones too.
What Sony have to offer in their phones compared to LG or Samsung are not the same.
Sony have some advantage in software area but that depend on who you're asking, and now they're removing features!!!!
Camera wise, Sony is not on the same level as Competitors.
Battery wise, competitors already caught up with Sony Soooo..
Waterproofing, competitors also caught up with Sony Soooo..
The last 2 point were a big factor for me to buying Sony but now!!!
They announce the freaking phone and release it months later when the hype and the excitement for it is already buried underground.
So yeah Sony is doing alot of Good moves but the Wrong ones out-weight their good ones by a mile.
...I don't understand why people hate sony ??? For price ? for 3 gb ram other have 4 gb ??? Why Why ?? They Forget iPhone is very costly and very low hardware... but people buy it..I have XPERIA MINI 4 years old..yes..working fine with latest lollipop 5.1.1..NO ONE scratch on my display ..Sony is very smart company...they know..Xperia x performance is fastest phone and better than Samsung s7 ...sony don't care benchmark score..campare hand to hand ..and see which device perfectly fast ? ...okay ..I love all xperia phones..sony create something different and make new..SONY IS BEST
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2016XD. even G5 looks better than these 3 X phones...G5 design is a bit weirdly.
The front selfie camera of Xperia X and X performance surely beat the G5, you can see the reviewer selfie.. it is awesome and handsome and so great!
Do you find out the X performance sample photos taken by Gsmarena reviewer, it is amazing and full of details and it is less noise and less blur and the white balance is very nice, totally a high-end camera both front and back.
Sagittarius, 19 Jun 2016Oh, don't be confused. I was clear. I am referring to those who area hating and bashing Sony s... moreSo, nobody in particular and everbody that's hating and bashing Sony?????

>The competitors always said and trolling, it is just to brain wash people, just like a lot people know that who are isheep.
Quote: "It has no relation with at all... I'm Sony lover since Sony Ericsson t610 until z3compact... Unfortunately Sony behave as we are Japanese we are the best and forgotten that... a group in university can built a phone better than them with financial support..."
>You liar, you don't understand Japanese, they rather silence than gibberish/vilify their products, and you should know there is no perfect thing in the world (I am mistrust Samsung claim that they have always been perfect).
Quote: "Sony should listen to the customer and forget about manufacturing just to follow up..."
>Do you find some references before said this? Sony Xperia have support forum and a lot of development group at Google plus and more , I think you never try out something. IMO Sony inevitable have it invention so why should follow?
Quote: "Ford and Renault had have worst sales in alot of countries.. But they listin to consumers and develop them product as well as Samsung.."
IMO Samsung will not give much of the software and android version update because they don't listen to the consumers, maybe I was wrong, I think they have alot of phones in the market just waiting you to pay for the new one.
Quote: "All try to compete with iPhone... Because ios stable and all of u forget that... IPhone rent you a phone and keep leading you. They never let you lead ur phone.. You are only temporary user until they force you to buy new one.. "
>Stop brain wash people, ios is not so stable when it get software update (maybe it lack of ram or have bugs). Android have more ram, 3GB ram is enough to process a fluidly process. Every company is the same, they hope you can spend money to purchase new phone, but which giant play a serious game I mean do more on software update and android version update? My phone running Marshmallow now, no crash and very fast. I know nothing is perfect, but are the ios really perfect in stable, let's user judge it.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2016I do, and my name is Xperia X series.XD. even G5 looks better than these 3 X phones...
I use to support Sony but not any more. Why no 4K video recording is just a really bad decision. Even my iPhone SE records 4K and its $400 cheaper
I have been a Sony fan for as long as I can remember but I find myself choosing other brands because they just seem to be clueless these days. For years I have been waiting for an Xperia that rivals the likes of the Galaxy S line. Year after year I get dissapointed reading reviews and seeing first hand how every single one of Sony's flagships shoots grainy photos. At this rate I don't know whether I'd trust Sony's direction ever again.
