2.FHD means better performance and battery life . QHD is useless...
3.To me Waterproofing is one of the best features and it's not gimmick in any way.
4. I can give you a link for camera comparison so judge for yourself .
5.New Qnovo tech gives the battery min800 recharge cycles while other phones have 400 also this is partly answer on number 8 in this list for you.
6.Not better than HTC 10 when it comes to loudness but audio on Xperia is definitely the best,besides good sound there are other reasons to have front facing stereo speakers .
7.It's not subjective Sony won many awards for design and Sony comes without design flaws of S7 and HTC 10 .
8.Design ,Investing in Qnovo tech ,new Camera Features.
9.There is a lot gimmicks in all of those phones besides Xperia...but list would be to long actually...
10.if you don't think so then give an argument why do you think differently.
LG G5 is the best.. if it wasnt ugly!
sams7 is the best.. if it wasnt boring already ... like have seen it since the beginning of creation!
on aggregate HTC10 gets my vote .. short of many tops in class, but overall the highest CGPA
Sony XP is a fail to catch up in timeline, specs & design
As for China brands... well ... they are China brands
Anonymous, 15 May 2016Honestly, how can the X Performance beat anything on this list? Even Z2 beats this X crap t... moreHow can't it defeat anyone here? It has Hi-Res audio inside. Dual front-facing stereo speakers which Samsung could only dream of. It only has 1080p display and since it is paired with the SnapDragon 820, that would make a perfect combination. The camera isn't the final yet so we have to wait before judging. Battery has Qnovo Tech so it will be better than Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Design is actually portable. It's simple, without any gimmicks like Edge screen. 5 inch seemed to be ergonomic as well. It is water resistant which others are just trying to copy. What else do you see from the X Performance that makes you think it can't compete here?
Next week you should do this poll: which company puts the least bloatware on their phones?
Romie Lee, 15 May 2016It is not metal body, it is metal back with plastic frame.it's metal body and metal back outer frame/sides are covered in poly carbonate similar to one that was previously on the corners of Z3+ and Z5 .
To me HTC 10 is the best smartphone with all features.. then comes thr samsung s7 edge and lg g5
In India HTC 10is not yet still launch but I am awaited myself HTC 10is best
Lord Petyr Techwiz, 15 May 2016It's rather intriguing to see that people think HTC 10 is better than both S7 and G5. I don't know about S7, but it is much better than G5
TeamAndroid, 15 May 2016Xperia X Performance all the way and top 10 reasons why :
3. ... more1. Exynos 8890 is much better than S800
2. FHD is not exactly a good thing, considering all other flagships have QHD and that VR is just around the corner
3. S7/e is IP68 as well, besides that's just a gimmick for some people
4. Has any reviewer reviewed this phone so far, if yes, I don't see anyone mentioning it for its camera, all I hear is S7,G5 and 10
5. Yeah, Sony is known for that ✓
6. ✓, although HTC 10 has amazing sound quality
7. Nope. That's subjective though. For me HTC 10 and S7e are better
8. Innovative? in what?
9. I bet all the phones in this list are gimmick free.
10. "Best Software", I don't think so.
It's rather intriguing to see that people think HTC 10 is better than both S7 and G5.
Meizu M3 note and Pro 6. Why? Because Flyme is smooth (No need to think what "spec" inside the phone). The Battery life is amazing. Design is simple and nice. This is everlasting phone.
S7edge(exynos) is flagship of flagships - overall they improved everything(just not camera resolution :( ) and thats what flagship should be about - bringing best and new tech. If you just compare f.ex. battery capacity, its clear that it should increase over time, not decrease. Forget things like sensors etc., no one makes device able to compete in this specs battle, when they do, it comes with Many drawbacks like screen resolution /battery capacity /camera overall performance /looks /bad UI /being copy of something...
HTC 10 for awesome design. From Sony, I'm really disappointed. Instead of keeping the unique frosted glass back, they go with an ugly scratched mainstream metal back. If you ask for internals, they are all the same so that doesn't care.
Xperia X Performance all the way and top 10 reasons why :
3. Metal body .
4. Best camera combo.
5. Best battery life and longest lifespan.
6. Front facing stereo speakers.
7. Best design of all .
8. Most innovative among all.
9. Gimmicks free.
10. Best software and longest support that is second only to nexus devices .
