My Sony XP mid Ranger was an Excellent cell, now with thus New X Performance is gonna blow peoples minds in Sony Performance!
DarkMaster, 12 May 2016I think first problem that Sony have is that they don't even have that '' 40 sec commercial ''... moreMy thoughts exactly, this X Performance maybe isn't a "proper" flagship for this year, personally I see it something like a Z3+ was at the time. A model with high end chipset to tie us over till the "proper" flagship shows up.
I would actually like to see a smartphone from Sony with competition specs, but with Sony working their stuff on it (UI, battery endurance...) plus something gimmicky for the camera (like the camera on older SonyEricsson branded phones, c902 for instance).
mrgud, 12 May 2016That's all well and dandy, but it's also a way to hurt their sales, because how can you convin... moreI think first problem that Sony have is that they don't even have that '' 40 sec commercial '' , Xperia have non existent marketing ... it's clear that Mobile sales is not Sony priority at the moment or at least not until now .
I would like more RAM to , 4gb wouldn't hurt . about the battery I'm not sure yet why capacity is not bigger but knowing Sony engineering it must be different build from Z that makes less space for battery...Z5 got battery capacity cut from Z3 , because putting all ports in the right place and buttons take some space for connections,cooling system and fingerprint sensor on the side takes some space to... I think if they where able to give more capacity to battery then they would...or it's just midrange phone(it's unknown at this moment what are SONY plans for XP) and for midrange phone maybe they don't want to give it bigger battery...
DarkMaster, 11 May 2016Yet Sony is first to implement adaptive charging Qnovo tech, and one of rare manufacturers who... moreThat's all well and dandy, but it's also a way to hurt their sales, because how can you convince some Joe Average all about that new technology in a 40 sec commercial, especially when the spec sheet says it has less (RAM, MaH) than it's competition.
To make things clear, personally I believe the battery will last for 2 days of moderate usage, but why not make it 4 days? And the RAM will be enough to handle all everyday tasks, but why not give more?
If they would give more, the guys at marketing department would have it much easier to persuade people into buying this phone and maybe the head's wouldn't be considering the possibility to close down the mobile department...
Ive used an iPhone for the past 10 years. And have bought a new iPhone every year. i am finally realizing how behind the iPhone is. Besides iTunes the iPhone is very behind in technology. They are just a very good branding company and are very good at integrating media to the phone. i will be buying a sony phone very soon.
Those X Performance sounds promising to compete with the earlier S7, H10, or G5. And Sony has a good reputation for delivering android update after the nexus series.
But I'm still waiting for a 6.4" version for X Performance. Still loving my Z Ultra, and won't change till get the better one.
[deleted post]what I finally said ? I really don't get you .. my first statement was and stays that S7 has no advantage over XP regarding RAM memory because of screen resolutions and actually S7 is maybe even at disadvantage. it's just that other guy ''mir'' interpreted my words differently due to his poor knowledge on tech but no wonder though , he is an Apple fanboy ....
If you are so much in need of better resolution for VR then get Z5 Premium ;) it's got best resolution and first UHD phone , that is double the resolution of QHD in S7 .
p.s. now I'm kidding I know you won't get Z5P because you are sammy boy :D
DarkMaster, 12 May 2016I'm not sure are you playing dumb and only trolling me or you really don't understand ?
ok ... moreYeah you finally said "GPU IS RESPONSIBLE" not RAM. If QHD phone cause frame drop on gaming because "underpowered GPU" not RAM. That's why FHD phone with Adreno530 is better than QHD phone uses same GPU. But I don't care because every flagship phones with QHD still provides a smooth experience
More resolution = better VR experience
VR is the Next Platform
papercut, 11 May 2016 So? Does RAM responsible for driving the resolution of screen?I'm not sure are you playing dumb and only trolling me or you really don't understand ?
ok , my last reasonable try with you .
GPU is ''responsible'' and more pixels it has to push(QHD is double from FHD) it puts more strain on it . Meaning rendering system UI and every app in higher resolution will consume considerably more vRAM .
Mobile GPU like andreno530 doesn't have it's own dedicated video RAM but shares one and same system memory/RAM in the phone .
simply put higher the resolution is the more RAM is generally going to be consumed by device.
for example that is why Note5 has barley 1GB free RAM and Z5 has almost 2gb free RAM for the user...
papercut, 11 May 2016Yes, this phone is nothing, it will change nothing and S7 is successful while people forget th... moreI have no intentions to argue with Samsung fanboys like you because fanboys and trolls have zero arguments and such are boring to me , but if this phone is nothing then why are bothering to know anything about it ? why you read articles about it ? why you leave so much opinions on pages about Sony devices ? and why you are even made reply on my comment ?
papercut, 11 May 2016He said "RAM is not responsible for driving the resolution of a screen" RAM not graphic card, ... moreyou need to see my post on which he made reply to...and Mr. Smart which RAM do you think uses adreno GPU in mobile devices ??
I will be kind to enlighten you : it shares system RAM ! it doesn't have it's own dedicated vRAM like in PC's (and even some PC's still use integrated graphic cards,those are office computers mostly).
So if you don't know the basic stuff how the hardware is functioning then it would be smarter to stay silent for people like you.
DarkMaster, 11 May 2016Yes , this phone is amazing ! it beats every flagship phone like S7,G5,HTC 10 hands down while... moreYes, this phone is nothing, it will change nothing and S7 is successful while people forget this phone and waiting for the new iPhone, Note and Nexus.

Sony is still gonna announce another awesome phone later this year at IFA and make them even more miserable ;)

This phone is inferior to the competitors.
For example Galaxy S7 is a much better phone in every aspect, except for the front camera.
I love Xperia-s, had and have a lot of them, but this one is not enough.
Weak hardver, ugly, thick, and weak battery.
Sorry Sony, this is the end for you!
I am sad, but this is the truth!
