So I guess the Xperia X phones, because they're unlocked, WILL NOT come with certain carrier-specific features like HD Voice & VoLTE. Just found this out. Sux b/c I have T-Mobile and have enjoyed these features, but once I get the XP, I will no longer have them available. Not a BIG deal, but definitely a minus. I had the T-Mobile Z3 and it had those features, but that's only b/c it was the T-Mobile Edition. lol
I COULD get the T-Mobile Edition HTC 10 and have those features, but its camera isn't AS good as the XP's. And I guess if I HAVE to choose, I'd rather have a better camera than those 2 features. HD Voice is good I guess. VoLTE lets u use internet while on a call and u stay in 4G LTE too (w/o VoLTE, calls go down to 4G). I notice too that with VoLTE the phone calls connect faster than w/o. But the thing is, I don't really talk on the phone that much, so I think for me I can live with it. I didn't know they were carrier-specific features though. Just sux having to make yet another sacrifice (waiting 'til freakin' July, HAVING to get the int'l version just to get fingerprint sensor & IP65/68, etc).
wirya, 31 May 2016I've been waiting for X series, but when it compared with S7 the only better for X Performance... moreBut, the Xperia X Performance with Qnovo battery tech, when the/your S7 seal battery spoilt or battery inflated, the Xperia X Performance battery still alive, then you got to buy a new phone from Samsung, this is why Samsung only have the R & D investment in quick-charge, but not add on Qnovo battery, and the Qnovo battery still have quick charge 2.0
And the Xperia X performance with new predictive auto-focus feature that can track a moving object in the frame. This is a feature over Z5 too.
Ok U.S. XP fans......... breaking news:
Pre-orders for XP begin June 19th, XP gets officially released on July 17th! Now, I think this is for the U.S. XP, which is somewhat lacking (no IP65/68, and I guess now they took the fingerprint sensor back off it), though it WILL come with the QNovo Quick Charge 3.0 charger. I though will be getting the int'l one, which I'm hoping will come out SOONER than the U.S. version? I know it will most likely be cheaper too, since the int'l Z5 is cheaper than the U.S. version is. But the fact that the U.S. one has a date at least means we have a better idea of when things will start to happen.
I've been waiting for X series, but when it compared with S7 the only better for X Performance is it's camera. and when it compared to Z series, there are only 2 positif point which are camera and chipset (obvious). hope it will get huge upgrade for memory and battery capacity before it lunch on June or July.

Just go and buy your Zenfone.
We don't need your opinion , Mind your own business and we'll mind ours
Tann Hauser, 30 May 2016Ahah....
All that tech... but it sucks.

Theres no way full metal unibody with 'all that tech' is cheaper than cheap Plastic with metal back with lower/cheap specs.
Avan Dr, 30 May 2016Remember i recomended you ZF3, check them out. Its better than this crap in everything.
I don't agree that the Asus Zenfone 3 looks better than X Performance. But aside from that, there are other reasons I WILL NOT be getting the Zenfone 3:
-Sony's camera sensor on the X Series has been PROVEN to be the best yet, even beating out Samsung's for the time ever: http://imgur.com/a/ywBeN
- Better speaker for sure? The Zenfone 3 only has ONE speaker, not TWO/STEREO like the XP has. How is that better?
- 6GBs of RAM?? That's the Zenfone 3 Deluxe dude. The Zenfone 3 has 3 or 4 GBs depending on the variant.
- QC 3.0......... This is still being debated because I've read that the X series isn't QC 3.0-compliant, yet the new Sony QNovo charger is listed as being QC 3.0-compliant, so I now have doubts that the XP ISN'T QC 3.0-compliant. http://www.sonymobile.com/glob...arger-uch12/
- The processor: You're telling me an SD625 chip is going to OUTDO an SD820 chip? Come on Avan? You didn't think I'd notice that in the specs?? lol
-The main reason I won't buy the Zenfone 3: TOO BIG! The smallest of the 3 variants of the Zenfone 3 still has a 5.5" screen! Meaning it's a PHABLET, and I DON'T DO PHABLETS.
Avan Dr, 30 May 2016-Usb type C
-3 tech auto focus, LAF,CAF,PDAF
All that tech... but it sucks.
Btw, those are ugly man, that camera module and fingerprint buttons really look too cheap.
Software quality is nowhere near Sony...
My bro had Zenfone2 for about 4 months...no more tho.
And what you call crap is best performing sd820 device out there
The price you pay for a phone includes software solutions for it too, you know ;-)
Look up X performing, youll taste a bit of X Performance in that sour taste for you. :-)

The video you posted earlier of XP vs S7 had the Exynos-variant of the S7, not SD8... moreRemember i recomended you ZF3, check them out. Its better than this crap in everything.
-Prettier, more premium with upti date design full metal body, more durable.
-The same sensor, with the same sensor better lenses(glass not pladtic)means it will beat this crap, there is common secret soni software is the worst.
-Hi res audio, better speaker/louder for sure.
I think that sony xperia X PREMIUM will be better than any other a it is used world's 1st HDR display.so it will be better than Super amoled .s amoled always change color tone like red to orange, white to yelloissh..........
Soc sd820 is blezzerfast .camera is also good but sony should improve in pixel size also .
anyone know any good decal site? Gonna need one to replace the back, didn't like the stained metal look
This isn't an upgrade from my z5, Sony what are you doing? cant i have 4 gigs of ram with a better display a wider screen and less bezel. that's all we been asking since the z2..
Anonymous, 28 May 2016hey gaaron! it's ok man, yeah i do like curves... all guys do ;-) .... but seriously it's much... moreAyt cool bro if you think sony lost in the game of innovation... But i dont think so bro...lol...lets put it that way...:D
When on the hell will Sony releases this godamm phone ?! , it's been almost 5 months -_-
gaaron, 24 May 2016Lol you said atleast give xa a fingerprint scaner and when they do the price of the phone will... morehey gaaron! it's ok man, yeah i do like curves... all guys do ;-) .... but seriously it's much more comfortable using a moto than it is to use an xperia,n the end it's personal choice. about the fingerprint reader.... what i meant was at much less people are getting something extra....Sony banking only on hardcore fans. Anyone can see it doesn't justify the price. nothing special here, is all I meant to say...... never thought I'd say this about Sony... but they've lost the game of innovation.
Tann Hauser, 28 May 2016There are also compares of s7(exynos) vs S7(sd820)...
And compares s7(exynos) vs lg g5(sd820)... more
The video you posted earlier of XP vs S7 had the Exynos-variant of the S7, not SD820. The results may vary in personal use as the Exynos is slower than the SD820. I like seeing that the X is so fast, but doesn't the variance in how fast a network loads up have a role in how fast the phone loads up images?
RockStar2005, 27 May 2016
VERY interesting videos! Seems like the X beat out the HTC 10 and LG G5 for sure. ... moreThere are also compares of s7(exynos) vs S7(sd820)...
And compares s7(exynos) vs lg g5(sd820) for example...
Sammy seriously crippled its sd820 S7 wariant, to promote its own exynos chip I guess, cause sd820 LG G5 stacks much better than sd820 s7 compared to exynos S7...
So Im preety sure X beats sd820 S7 in speed... ;-)
