Innosaint, 04 May 2016Because someone likes it more than S7 Duhh?. You talk like samsung offers more than sony. The ... moreIts not a feature even, its just an extra led light with a heartrate app.
You can download a dozen apps that do the same with your own camera led lamp
Xz8441, 04 May 2016That's the point mateIt is Sonys omnibalance design, with stereo speaker grills, new 2.5 curved screen and new metal back, with waterproof open microusb( first designed by Sony), and unique powerbutton/fingerprint placement), along with Sonys shutterbutton.
It should look like what?
You dont know which one of those copies or is copied more than the other...
Enjoy Sonys unique design and stop ranting
Herodroid, 04 May 2016why would someone actually buy this instead of galaxy s7? it looks wayy better than sony.Because someone likes it more than S7 Duhh?. You talk like samsung offers more than sony. The only thing there is Heart rate monitor which totally is not even a thing. Who will be checking their rate when they are having a heart attack or some other heart issues. That feature is just there because they can put it.
Anonymous, 04 May 2016It looks similar to before What crap?That's the point mate
Tann Hauser, 04 May 2016Nope, its double metal chasis covered with polycarbonate for better, more sturdy endurance, yo... moreForget it
They will complain no matter what even if they haven't seen the phone or used it
Xz8441, 04 May 2016Seriously?
That XP looks like crap. No 2 ways about it. It looks similar to before
papercut, 04 May 2016It's metal back cover and plastic chassis!Nope, its double metal chasis covered with polycarbonate for better, more sturdy endurance, you know, on drops and stuff....
Lg g5 and s7 are already below 600 now
What is the point of these now? Their prices are rocket high while they didn't even have usb type c or 3.1
It really is the best of things
At the moment there is no competition, it has it all:
in sound features(hires and stereo. Bt ldac),
Unique design( powerbutton placement, ip rating),
SoC performance and gaming (FHD screen with sd820),
And yes, camera features(its 23mpx capable stellar performing camera afer all)
I just cant get over wireless charging they left out after z3, first on market it was and was a unique and brilliant feature.
Ah well, can live without it
This phone is Performance at its best.
Sony has gone off their rockers with this price. The price is unjustifiable, it's worse than the z5, nearly 8 months older and yet more expensive? Absolutely mental. Just write-off the product now and skip to September's release. No one in their right mind will buy X Performance at that price.
ViscaElBarca, 04 May 2016You do realize Samsung and Iphones and LGs aren't any cheaper?
The only problem with X is t... moreSony never looks or feels cheap...
Go into a store and hold one in hands.
That is exactly why it is not cheap. ;-)
It's actually going to be 50eurs cheaper than this article says. Only sony soldiers will get this. And with that price it's totally worth it.
overpriced junk of crap half year of old stone age specs. sony digs its own grave. the thick bezel is so awful and disgusting. I think z series much better and handsome looking. Xmodels are just a pathetic and sluggish strategy by Sony. See you next year at MWC, sony. I hope you won't die tomorrow and you'll be there.
