Finally! I can't wait to buy the X Performance!
I choose the XP cos I think it is the perfect phone for 2016. SD820 on FHD, waterproof, SD Card. I don't care about the other features.
FrankDrebin, 04 May 2016Actually no, Sony phones are the only ones that offer ALL the other features from other flagsh... moreYour statement is very wrong. Sony has never excelled in any single flagship performance category when compared to what the S7, G5 and HTC 10 can offer. The regular S7 alone is a much more complete package than the X performance and its price has gone down as well since launch. But go on ahead and choose the overpriced sony. Keep supporting their delusional marketing strategy.
[deleted post]Were you aware that your third paragraph directly contradicts your second paragraph? Im abit impressed.
FrankDrebin, 04 May 2016Actually no, Sony phones are the only ones that offer ALL the other features from other flagsh... moreThat's why you're the only clueless one here. You look at one factor and deem that it's befitting of the price while the rest of us look at the total package. If you don't see why the pricing is outrageous then I guess you're the perfect, gullible consumer that sony is luring.
mortuus, 04 May 2016lets buy it a redmi note 3 then for less then 200$ lmao...Let's Not, can't compare High Performance vs. Throw Away 1St year brands. SONY = premium high quality cells.
[deleted post]If its best choice for you still.. you deserve much lower price. Bcz
-Plastic metal back cover is cheaper than metal chassis sandwiched with dual glass design and metal unibody design
- 3GB ram is cheaper than 4 Gb ram
- FHD is cheaper than QHD

Galaxy S7, almost everything, except that single bottom facing loudspeakers, what is this 2010?
HTC 10, almost everything, but then again, a bottom facing loudspeaker and no water resistance.
LG G5, almost everything, then again, no front facing stereo speakers, no water resistance.
Xperia X Performance, everything mentioned above.
So yeah, worth the price, it might not be the killer phone in a single field like samsung on display, lg on camera, htc on speakers??, but it offers a GREAT phone overall.
Thats why I pick sony anyways.
To present a new device, try to create a kind of hype and release it 4 months later is the new strategy of Sony now???
Seriously? ? Not even even to mention the ridiculous starting price which drops 50 % after 4 months. Ok let's see. I can remember that not long time ago Sony released 2 flagships a year!! What is the higher value the of the X performance as the s7 g5 htc 10 can be bought 40 % cheaper. Whatever I really liked the z3 compact. Maybe the best phone ever from Sony. Good luck with the x series.
Come on Sony.....Are you serious with these prices. I bet ya that you are barely selling 100.

Assefa, 03 May 2016LMAO cheap as always sonyYou do realize Samsung and Iphones and LGs aren't any cheaper?
The only problem with X is the build material and the phone looks kinda cheap. But all Z series looked like a real premium phone.
Anyway, no more Z, Sony made my life easier, now I have to decide only between Galaxy S Edge and Galaxy Note.
Avan Dr, 04 May 2016I mean low end build. Plastic construction with metal back cover is low end design.

Sikorsky, 04 May 2016Since when is SD 820 low end?
I mean low end build. Plastic construction with metal back cover is low end design.
To make flat metal back with two holes for camera n flash is the easiest, i can make somthing like that with scissor ruler and drill, now compare it with complicated form metal chassis with many holes for screws, buttons, speaker grilles etc.
Sony, I love your products but simply not that much. Way too pricey for an upper mid range specified phone. Throw in QHD, 5.5" screen etc. and we may have a conversation. Based on spec, this should be no more than £350. End of.
Seriously, Sony needs to get a grip on reality!
