X got 67h endurance, but on anands list its preety high up there:
Same goes for all other that tested it....
So, I wonder what place will X performance hold with 61h....
Grey1213, 20 Jun 2016He proved it to you with numbers. Your silly little videos mean nothing, the whole point of us... moreNumbers....
like that antutu 116k number, when the phone actually gets 139k....
I personally do not care about your personal opinion about the screen, it is superb, as seen on every yt compare video.
x reality and dynamic range enhancement tech do the job superbly obviously, despite the numberrd parameters...
nor do I care of your opinion about the camera...
It does produce best results despite the grain....
And you seem obsessed by grain only, but dont care for other camera parameters like ghosting, artefacts, color reproduction, detail preservation, etc....

They called it blatant cost cutting.
Sagittarius, 21 Jun 2016Classic! The effort that you are putting on your research to bash and put down Sony is classic... moreThat's very interesting actually. So you put overpriced and premium brand in same argument. In other words, you're over paying solely for the name. Sounds like... fanboy.
All these comments turning into a flame war, the phone IS overpriced but I bet the price will drop soon if there are no sales, some kind of logic and common sense.
Seems like a good phone, 5' display seems to be enough, QHD or even UHD is a bit overkill for tiny screens, I have both a Galaxy S7 Edge and a Lumia 1520, I can't see the pixels so it doesn't matter. I came from a Xperia Z3, pre ordered it actually, it was a great phone, actually the battery life was on par with my S7 Edge but I'm still getting rid of the bloatware so I'm hoping it'll eventually get better.
What I didn't like about this new X Performance was the battery downgrade and they could've stick with a 5.2' inch display, seems to have room for it, while 0.2 doesn't mean much, it's about what you need for the on screen navigation buttons which is almost permanent. (Actually 0.36 inches)
My Z3 is still running strong, I gave it to my mom, always kept it in a case, Spigen with "air cushions", with a Nilkin 9h 2.5d glass screen protector, very durable stuff. Lasts over 2 days of moderate use without a charge with Stamina mode on. Build quality is superb and yes it's waterproof, I've took pictures underwater, it's kinda cool, except for the touchscreen going mad on you.
What caught my attention about the X Performance were the benchmarks, 3GB Ram seems to be the sweet spot, even if synthetic benchmarks says otherwise, anyone knowing how *nix works and with some basic knowledge about how cache and minfree works on Android might bring up the fact putting up to 6GB Ram on mobile device nowadays makes nonsense, if you have that amount of active multitasking then you better have a laptop grade battery and a big one because most of it is solely used for cacheing and nothing else, can the current SoCs keep up with that amount of multitasking? Don't think so.
I'd rather have better internals such as faster internal memory with high write speeds. GSMArena could provide us with this info and more specific, less synthetic benchmarks, it's kinda relevant, especially with so many cheap phones powered by high end SoCs, they might be saving on something else.

The effort that you are putting on your research to bash and put down Sony is classic! You really are a true HOKAGE. But no matter what you say, how you guys bash and badmouth Sony, Sony is still a premium brand unlike the ones that you guys are fanboying. And there's only one thing that we do get along, against Sony's pricing.

They will never o... moreYou just compared a thousand broken or scratched phones to your single phone scenario? Why not take the whole sony xperia line as a whole as well? There will also be problems and accident related damages. And the iphones can actually perform well on daily tasks. That is why many people love them and not just the so called iSheeps. Sony phones also perform well, but there are many more better alternatives that are priced below them as well. They can't get away with their conservative approach on android just like what apple is doing.
Grey1213, 20 Jun 2016He proved it to you with numbers. Your silly little videos mean nothing, the whole point of us... moreActually the video was useful. It showed the advantages of the S7 and the person talking the video themselves only said that it was compatable. Which it is. It's a great display. But didn't say it is better.
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2016Cut and paste people who have no business on Sony posts. Hehe Thank you for proving my other post. If one person who actually lines sony says one thing that does not praise then or mentions a factual issue all you little fans get all upset and start piling in making up rediculous claims.
They crack. It's a fact. And the digitizer trends to die out when that happens.
It's called an issue and here in reality all products have them. Grow up and deal with it. It has nothing to do with being a fanboy or a hater out this company is better than that.
It was a factual response to a comment like that
Not sure why there are so many haters on here, if the phone is not up to your standard, why are you here spouting your bile? For me, appreciate what Sony to do in re-calibrating its market but I am not convinced. I have owned and loved every Sony top ender until the Z3, however, I simply do not see myself going back to 1080p screens. The camera issue has also plagued Sony, purely down to software algorithms, since they have the best sensors in the business, practically everyone else uses them.
If Sony see sense and does a Premium version, I will be all over it like a cheap suit! Until then.....

Like the camera, it's harder for me to convince you when you don't seem to know anything about cameras. But gsmarena and many other sources were disappointed with the noise levels among a few other issues.

Nobody ever said the display was poor or the camera. That's ridiculous. They are both great. Just not the best if the next that they like to claim
[deleted post]Objective tests say otherwise. Not particularly interested in your personal little opinion. It's almost like you didn't even watch the video.
Objective tests and reliable sources say the screen is poor, the camera is poor, the structural integrity of the z5 was poor (and since the x series is similarly built it would be the same), the battery is poor.
That's why you Sony fans rely on showing obscure youtube videos which don't even look like Sony is the best either. Even in this video, its only blue, how on earth can you judge the quality of the display based on one colour? Do you know absolutely nothing?
[deleted post]Yup. Even though in the video they say themselves it's only compatable xD

I can't even deny the facts why Sony phones are hated and why we came to love these devices all at the same time as well.
