Let me put it in simple words:
My son, a amateur wildlife photographer has a IPhone6, I have a Xperia Z3.
He borrows my mobile to take pictures.
Tann Hauser, 16 Jun 2016It is overpriced. But considering Apple, Samsung and Htc....it is actually not Problem is... moreSony marketing isn't good. But Sony phones are superb. Expensive? Not at all. Many people pay huge money for iPhone. But iPhone isn't powerful. Battery life is bad. iOS is like jail that can only change wallpaper. There is no other customisation. Samsung isn't good too. My uncle bought S7 Edge. Touchwiz improved but lag is always there. But my Sony Xperia Z3 never lag. Because of perfect software optimisation. So my friend it is better to wait few months and buy Sony. Go for Sony. It is available.
Ali Bashir, 15 Jun 2016Indeed, even iphone 6 is not comparable to xperia x and look to its price ~ 600$ right now: 1g... moreIt is overpriced.
But considering Apple, Samsung and Htc....it is actually not
Problem is, Sony puts out much too late
Look at X Performance....5 months since announced its finally out.
That is just tooo much.
If X was put out at same time as S7, for ex, it wouldnt be overpriced, as it would be viewed as a more than superb phone surpassing even that S7 in most things...and for 100Â€ less....
Sony marketing is the guilty one here
Sony's pricing isn't right. Where i live Xperia X is priced same as S7. Who would buy Xperia X when there is S7 that it superior at everything at the same price ? Price needs to be 25% lower if Sony wants to sell this device.
dd, 11 Jun 2016Lol 2700 mAh battery of xperia X gives more battery back up than Samsung S7. It is true fact. ... moreThat is what im trying to say on papers this is midrangers specs in real use its a total beast
Phinch88, 14 Jun 2016it may have a mid range chipset, but why on videos does it out perform the s7 when playing gam... moreThats true this phone is optimized well i saw the reviews it out performed sd 820 phones...
In gaming it destroyed s7

LeeHarvey, 13 Jun 2016Sony must be crazy of money when they put such ridiculous price for mid-ranger specs phone.it may have a mid range chipset, but why on videos does it out perform the s7 when playing games like assassins creed, sony have optimised the phone for great performance, as an owner its worth every penny
not forgetting that apple charge more
and thats only a 720p display and has a smaller screen with a 16gb storage
but... like sony they are optimised very well, its not always the higher the spec sheet the better the phone
scratch that, it's NOT ip certified, so please be smart about the video and the phone
The 2 minutes water test on Xperia X by XEETECHCARE
But honestly, don't try to do the same, since it's not officially ip certified
Sony must be crazy of money when they put such ridiculous price for mid-ranger specs phone.
your talking about prise and where i live it costs with a mobile subscription what is equal to 324£ or 435Â€ and that is not to bad since it normaly cost in gb (i live in denmark) more then 100£ more only for the phone
My opinion on SONY X (Just my opinion after doing some reading+research,well of course am using it as well)
1. Is the price too high? Definitely!
Counter:But..... it's worth for a quality product. I used Z1 before and it lasts for more than 2 years and I have only one issue with it, the battery. (Maybe I am lucky? NO!) I used it to play games that require the phone to 'work very hard'.
2. Qualcomm 650 series are bad?
Seriously guys read the Qualcomm 650 capabilities. It wasn't that bad (Well, can't compare with Qualcomm 820 though but, the price will sure be different if they use 820 series. Regretfully, it was too bad that SONY did not use the newest 652 series but why bother to use a newer series and pay more if you just need a mid-ranger phone?
(Pay less get less, pay more get more, as simple as that)
3. Xperia X battery
Seriously, the battery they used is different and in fact they increased use a better battery which increases it life span. So a 2600+ mAH battery does not mean that it is the same with other brand phones which have the same capacity.
4. Xperia X awkward button position?
5. Comparing sony with Samsung ( I don't want to comment on the comparison made with HTC as I only used Nokia, Samsung, Huawei and Sony phones.)
Well, let us start with counting how many version of Samsung phone out there?
The quality? The specification? Do they really value quality?
Yes, please answer yourself.
6. All in all, sony X is a mid-ranger phone for a very high price but offer you a decent specification and quality. As I still believe Japan products (Sorry, a little bit bias here but I think it's true compare with Huawei and Xiaomi and other phones.As so far, I did not hear from my friends who are using the phone lasts for more than 2 years. Not sure about you)
In the end, this is just my personal opinion. You do not need to agree with me,cheers :)
Ali Bashir, 11 Jun 2016Maybe they are pushing people to buy the flagship then they drop its price.hmm.. even i m also thinking..
they are playing they carpy and cheap games..
just take too much money from peoples and give them a 1/2 value mobile..
Tann Hauser, 12 Jun 2016Here.... is why people should choose Sony quality: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oqFxW0r0lbQIt doesn't matter how it works in a few minutes or days or, it depends on long time usage, i think sony is the king of quality.
