I am happy now prices of previous generation phones will fall down... And I can buy some high end phones at lower cost! Lol
This is great move......the design of smartphone keep better and i like the x name...i hope sony will make improvements in battery capacity,less bezel,camera and design......Sony u are the best
Kinda good and bad move. The good sony just focus on one line only, so the future updates may be fast, as they keep x series and they won't mess up and can release the updates fast. The bad xseries were released late and it can't compete properly with its rival and the x series prices quite high unlike other high end smartphone. So it's better for sony to strategize its plan again and release something reasonable in time with other smartphone makers out there.
Sony is too expensive to do anything in the low end phone market anyway. They waste too much money on these devices which make them no money.
Ritzie, 14 May 2016Yup... but probably some features as well like what they did with the Z seriesWaterproof is still present on the X Performance, which is also present on the Z series. Even the front-facing Hi-Res stereo speakers are still present. It's just a new name for a new start
It would have been just as sensible to have kept the Z series running and have all the phones come under it instead of having a completely new series like the X, just doesn't make sense to me.
Whatever the Sony produce, they always offer Quality Products but with a High Price Tag...
I.e. They sell Silver in a Gold Price...!
Sony will die out as far as smartphone manufacturing is concerned. Unless they come up eith something epic ally revolutionary.
Looks like Sony likes to waste their time and money, call it Quit folks -its overdue for quiet some time now!!
If this real.. sony really stupid... focus on high tier phone... xperia x stupid overprice.. only use SD 650... and it not waterproof.. only x performance waterproof..
Lets hope Sony continues to make low end smart phones and doesn't just focus on pricey phones, like HTC did for a while
