AnonD-400081, 02 Jun 2016Dude, the xperia x costs 550$ in the us.. but for some reason the same phone is 700$ in Europe... moreSony officially priced the X Performance at $700 and if price increase will occur, Sony is out of that topic. Region taxes isn't Sony's problem so if Xperia is overpriced in your country, accuse your country where you live, not the phone itself

Software of Sony is in fact the best right now, followed by HTC and LG, then Nexus, of course last is Samsung. Camera wise, Sony wasn't rivaled by any smartphone until 2015. S7 rivaled the Z5's camera, but that's a 2015 vs. 2016 flagship battle so it's expected for Samsung to win. The problem is that not every people are aware that Sony's camera is different from its competitors and is not that user friendly. It's not hard to get uses to, and once you do that, you can get some beautiful shots like these https://www.flickr.com/photos/136945683@N06/sets/72157659728750492
In fact, Sony has done a better job with the Xperia X series

That is almost 150$ more.. so again... If the xperia x performance is close to 900$ then it's not worth it.. if it's the same price, we would have to see how good the performance is

600+ Euros for a mid-ranger? Wow, some flagships sell way less than that. lol.
You can even get a S7 around that price. Who's Sony kidding?

Yes Xperia X can't compete with the S7 in GPU Performance but we're talking about a mid range vs. flagship battle here. X Performance will be much better than the S7 Exynos version because of better optimization. Samsung has better hardware, but Sony has better software
Guys give this phone a chance then say something. In all these comments i have seen so many stupid comments like over priced, midrange, even RIP x series, ect.
I have used some other brand as well but none of themgive proper update to their phones for example xperia z was released in jelly bean now it is in lollipop and in few weeks it might get marshmallow does any other brand give that option. Other brand will give one or two update and don't even turn back.
If anybody is saying that his phone just got cracked display or draining battery issues, it is not only for xperia series. It happens for all other brands.

Cause they realize Sony cells keep getting better and better!! Haha

On the other hand most official places with the s7 gave a free vr headset or even a smartwatch, and the unofficial prices would probably still be way too high for the xperia x.
kids,i want just to remind you this phone beats LG G5 and HTC 10
it's not about numbers,it's about quality and performance
best design,best camera with metal frame
I am not a fanboy or anything but sony is really messing up with the prices. you can get a s7 edge from amazon.de for 640 euros. Who on earth would buy this lower spec phone for 600 or 630 euros. No wounder why sony isnt doing good.
Sony selling midrange chip with flagship price, oh well... Better take S7 / 6s
