@ GSMArena, why are you guys putting iOS and Android benchmark in the same table. They are not compareable with each other. Those cross platform benchmark has flaw and don't run same binary.
another sony review. war will begin soon.
Guard your tower, sony fans. Trolls incoming.
Top simply design, rectangular and slightly rounded corner make the phone look boxy. That's why i never buy a single xperia phone. Not looked pretty at all. Sony still a looser even when they have superior hardware quality.
Just My oponion. I prefer Apple iPhone or android Samsung. Even chinese phone have a lot beautiful phone today.
Bad battery life And it's one I wrote that Sony has better stamina than LG: D does not.
OMG, even Taiwanese phones HTC 10 and ASUS Zenfone 3 Deluxe better than this.
This isnt a smartphone.
It is a social experiment.
It is meant to identify a 'sheep' from a 'wolf' in this world. (Hint: not buying this phone makes you neither and the 'wolves' are the suits sitting in Sony HQ.)
The worst part is that this phone was announced months ago, before even the Galaxy S7 launch. It would be kinda okay if this was launched right then and there. But now? This is the problem of Sony since the Xperia Arc. They announced a seemingly great/decent device, and then they let the competitors to out-launch them by months to the point that Sony's devices become just a meh when they are actually shipping. And it's not like the devices are perfect either. Sony phones cannot even take better pictures than other phones that use Sony's own sensors. That's how bad it is.
As ever with current line of Sony flagships I am in wonderland, please tell me a reason to buy this phone in June 2016, for that price especially.
Joonius, 17 Jun 2016Released very late with same specs as everyone else's phones. Disappointing battery life. Good... moresame specs on paper only it looks. technically only camera looks better. no build quality no optimization same old tiny volume sound etc. i m mad at sony for putting zero effort into this.
atleast APPLE makes it worth the price.
dude camera is not everything. the difference will be marginal in either direction on dxo. u r talking like it will leave other flagship cams miles behind. REALLY POLYCARBONATE FRAME. what i dont get is , how lg g5 with 2800 battery on 5.3 QHD screen has 60hr endurance, and this fullHD 5 inch with 2700 has 61hrs, and with only 300 more at 3000mAh xiaomi mi5 has 30hrs more (92hrs) of endurance . i suppose sony really put zero effort into software and other optimizations, and they want to take full advantage of stupid fans like us. my dream of switching from z3 to xp down the drain hah!
This year Sony just made new record of weird and ldiotic ideas... I have no idea who made those decisions but it perfect example of stabbing yourself in the back using rhino riding on lion that have katana in his paws...
It sound weird just like Sony recents ideas... And xperia XP is perfect example of it
Ciro123, 17 Jun 2016Wait xperia x premium in september, always first en dxomarkThis one will be too. It does better shots than s7, G5 and htc10....
Its easy to go to compare tool and look by yourself the difference in quality, both light and lowlight at same crop, ..
X is the best
Well, it sure got what it deserved in this review ;) Pitty about all the critical weaknesses.
Aa2, 17 Jun 2016There will be another and more expensive phone at ifaHope so
well... the supposedly durable battery is good. and oleophobic coating on the screen is really cool, too. i wish more phones besides Apple's had that.
but those aside... i guess the review pretty much confirms the impression many people got. sadly, it seems to be an average flagship for an above average price. and if Sony really purposely held back some features here to make a higher-tier and even more expensive version later... brand loyalty should be rewarded, not exploited
Released very late with same specs as everyone else's phones. Disappointing battery life. Good luck on sale Sony.
Ali Bashir, 17 Jun 2016It is so sad you so many people doing big efforts to bach sony, pathetic.Yup, they are just...pathetic.
