When you compare Sony with Apple price-wise , you fail to compare other things too. Apple has spent a significant amount of both time and investment in its mobile operating system and executing the things iOS is capable of doing , efficiently. With Sony , nada. They just took an OS given to them for free by Google . They just tweak it a bit here and there and add a few proprietary apps and they are good to go. Basically , with an iPhone you pay for both the software and the hardware which . With Sony , you pay exorbitantly for mid-range hardware and free , slightly tweaked software.
Taking a look at their respective hardware . Apple engineers go to great lengths developing the processor (Apple's A9 goes toe to toe in CPU-GPU with SD 820 inspite of launching 6-7 months before 820, commendable!) . Also , they use NVNM storage tech , which is equal to UFS and way faster than eMMC 5.1 . Not to mention , the 14nm manufacturing process.
When it comes to Sony , for 49000 they are trying to sell you a mid-range SD650 SoC made on a 28 nm manufacturing process and way-way weaker Adreno 510 GPU. The storage used is eMMC 5.0 (not even 5.1) .And 2620 mAh is pure disappointment. Do you know which other phone has same configuration ? Redmi Note 3. And how much does that cost ? 13000 for the top end version ( coupled with 4100 mAh battery pack).
Now you begin to see the value proposition and the vast difference between an Apple device and Sony device , which is just trying to rip you off , of your hard earned money.
Sure people wont pick this phone and this is not an favorable configuration and its price is to bad.dnt follow apple sony.!!

I'd like to which genius came up with 49k for the xperia x and thought, "that's a reasonable price!"
C'mon!, it's got the same specs as the redmi note 3 for gods sake!
Anonymous, 30 May 2016XA will be a big hitNope. At least not in India
Somebody from Sony please provide BOM for Xperia X. Following are the key things that I am looking for justification towards price:
1. Snapdragon 650 (Midrange Hexa (c) processor)
2. 3GB Ram (LPDDR3/4) ?
3. Unibody aluminium construction ?
4. IP68 Certification ?
5. Speakers ? (Poor speakers @ 58db max)
6. Sub-par 23MP camera !
7. 2600ma battery ? (QNovo is just charging tech)
8. Durability tests proof ?
9. Assembly in China ?
10. No Dual tone LED for flash ?
11. Sub-par build quality ?
12. First time ever in history Sony pricing a phone more than its alluring LED TV's lol.. Are providing gold plated phones to charge a phone of 30K to as high as 48K ?
Bring it down to 35 - 40K If you don't those units to accumulate dust in the vendors godowns. Fire the marketing team who priced a mid range phone to premium.
I am afraid sony would vanish from mobile market with launch of X performance at Rupees 82000 /- .
Simply when you buy a Sony smartphone you can synchronize it with your PS4 but when you buy a Samsung you must synchronize it with Samsung refrigerators or freezers or home air conditioners
Very expensive, as 20k for mediatek(Xperia XA) and X even expensive as a stunning flagship....
Chines companies handsets are best for mid-rang segment(Lenovo,Le1s etc) even Moto G4 Plus would win here.....
But i love Sony device as i have used one...
- Very Polish User Interface(Chines manufactures lacks here). No need to depend on third party app as it has one of the best Music Player, Album & Video App.
- Camera is even better than iPhone as compares by GSM arena itself.
- One of the best place for fingerprint, for comfort and convenience.
- Lasts long in term of durability. As in chines companies are focusing more in cost cutting.
- Scope for Aftermarket ROM and Support.

What is funnier is that some people will consider this to be a "premium" phone just because it got Sony branding material pasted on it. I guess, its not that hard to sell people poop in a box, as long as the poop got some nice shiny gold leaf branding from KFC or McD on it. Whoever is senile enough to buy these...enjoy your crap. You deserve it.

AnonD-418, 30 May 2016If you cannot afford it or don't want to spend that money on a SONY phone, don't buy it. Nobod... moreYou mean you are willing to pay 49000 for a phone which has SD650?
Agreed that Sony products are of good quality but still 49k? Ridiculous...
No more than a thousand units, maybe not even thousand . Sony has zero skills in marketing stratergy, it used to be my favorite brand, no more.
If you cannot afford it or don't want to spend that money on a SONY phone, don't buy it. Nobody is forcing you to buy it. SONY products are not cheap and not for everyone, just like an iPhone...
I would say that price of xperia XA is ok at Rs. 21,000 but it should be around Rs. 18,000 due to competition. Also the price of xperia X is really very high. I think that it should be around Rs. 30,000 otherwise there are many phones with equal or more features than this at less price than this like galaxy a9, galaxy s6. Even xperia z5 is available at Rs. 40,000 which also has 4k video option. Or for other OS one might go for iphone 6 or 6s which are also availabe for less than this price. Buy putting that price sony is throwing axe on his own future.
