They'll price it so high at the first release then they keep cutting prices down the next month that by September the Xperia X will probably be the same price as the Z5 Compact and the XA as the same price as the M4 Aqua
Cause once you Buy a Sony you never go back to Cheap Low end devices... That's why you get what you pay for.
What's so special about their products that warrants such a high price??
I thought that the X Premium (if there'll be) is going to be my next phone but, when I see those prices, holy smokes Sony! Imagine xa with like 18k php (200+ usd) and then the x 36k php (500+usd),x performance likely to be 41k php (700+ usd) and the x premium around 45-50k php (1000+ usd). This is what you call overpricing. It really broke my heart after reading through this article. Goodbye Sony!
DJH1971, 22 Apr 2016They're still listing the X Performance on the Sony Mobile UK pageDude, we don't wanna hear about it.
It should have been in the area if £350. Z5 compact is selling for £279 at giffgaff.
[deleted post]Yep. People with more money than brains.
Biggest flop of 2016.
550 for a mid-tier chipset, standard camera n standard screen.
Get your head out of that place SONY
I agree with most of the people who commented that sony is charging very high for a mid ranger processor. But if you remember the GSM article that sony managed to maintain its financial position with premium range of products. They are planning to stay in that segment and add to its brand value. I don't think sony ever wants to go to mass market with cheap prices and cheap quality with high end specs.
If you compare it with apple sony is anytime better than a iPhone. I hate android os but apparently that has captured the market place big time. ios is good but I don't want apple . Windows os is very good but they are incomplete.
Aqua24, 23 Apr 2016So with those price Sony intend to just sell 10 units. Nice marketing strategy! 😊It ll sell. Dont worry about that...
There will always be people ready to pay that kind of money for quality mobile experience.
Look at apple users numbers for reference ;-)

Avand Rd, 23 Apr 2016How ironic when sammy now has premium dual glass design(the best one), it has bold solid high ... moreAnd they boost the price through the roof now.
2.5 years ago i bought a good build quality Z1 for only $730 AUS (390 Pounds).
Sony only sells overpriced plastic crap now.
What a shame.
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2016Haha. This phone is plastic crap. What a joke. Samsung is premium glass back and metal f... moreHow ironic when sammy now has premium dual glass design(the best one), it has bold solid high quality alumunium chassis, its unbendable, HTC and Iphone have premium full metal unibody. But sony move to cheap quality, plastic with metal back cover.
