Browndynamite.., 30 May 2016Then what exactly is the overpriced X series for? Z6 is for ultimate performance beyond the X series but if you've seen speed tests of the X against the G5 and HTC 10, it beats them both and performs 90% as fast as an Exynos S7 with only a Snapdragon 650, that is incredible. Sony's software optimization is insane. If the X can perform this well, clearly the X Performance will beat every other phone out there. Even if the X costs $500, it is worth every single penny. I will be buying the X Performance however.
Speed tests (real world performance):
This is a mystery phone, but why other brands's "fans" (Samsung Xiaomi etc) like to express their experiences? It is a better way to compare with a mystery phone? Or it is a kind of way to "advertising"? Please focusing to the mystery phone not the variety crap phones.
Anonymous, 30 May 2016Have you tried auto brightness under bright sunlight?I tried it both under Auto AND Manual, and the brightness stills sux. I CAN'T WAIT for the XP!!
Kabil Uddin, 28 May 2016The real joke is Samsung phone which has higher spec yet it lose to lower spec phone. Dude you were the one who mentioned Samsung first in a Sony article. I wonder why Android users bash each other. Peace.
--, 29 May 2016Why you blame samsung fans for sony's failure? Are you jealous with samsung innovations? I've ... moreSorry to brake it to you but I chose Sony specially cos it doesn't have amoled screen. Not everyone is obsessed about it. As for payments, I don't want Fuggle to know my fingerprints for one. I've deleted the NFC apk anyway, along with bluetooth, radio and a lot of other apps I consider to be bloatware.
May I ask why is it that Sammy boy toys always have to troll on Sony related articles? Are you really that insecure that you have to troll? You don't see Sony fans trolling Sammy products. So go troll iPhone, Sammy 's big brother. We all know that Sammy is the iPhone of Android. Which is a disgrace to the whole Android community.
As for the quality build, everyone that I know having a Sammy phone is disappointed by it. They all look scratched on the sides after a few months. That metal on the sides is actually painted plastic and you dare telling us about sammys quality..
Get a life dude. You're simply pathetic!
tamil027, 29 May 2016u don't own s7 ..do u?? complain about anything but not the brightness.....it is the best.....
I DO own the S7, and the brightness under heavy sunlight DOES SUCK. I'm sorry but it's a FACT. I can't even read it under those conditions. My old Xperia Z3....... even THAT got brighter.
Anonymous, 30 May 2016It's called Low end device mfg, it's like comparing Apples with Oranges. Heheh Can't Compare a Lexus with a Low price mfg since Lexus is premium car mfg like Sony is in cell phones Flagships.

Could be that one Premium from rumors, the first with HDR screen :-)
Avan Dr, 29 May 2016What about xiaomi? i find you there. Their device is more interesting than sonys, right. Same ... moreeven with redmi note 3 with 4000mah you cant really feel it has big battery. some good news from xiaomi only their nice performance with low price.
My guess is that Geekbench got the physical screen size wrong, happens all the time. It's either:
- a 4.6 or 4.7" compact which gets the FHD screen people were criticizing Sony for missing (although still not needed imo) and returning the 4k as the compact is rightly Sony's headline product...
- Or a 5.2 or 5.3" Premium whose res reads at FHD because the 4k screen doesn't kick in on the benchmark. Which would also hint at why 4k video was left off the performance, to push people towards the Premium. Makes sense in a way, why bother with 4k video if you can't play back in 4k....? Short-sighted reasoning of course but feasible in any case...
