It's good agreed.. but the s7 is still a better phone than the xperia x. Also if the X is priced at ~700$ the X performance will be close to 900$. S7 would still be a better buy

Let's imagine what X Performance will perform at! Haha
Tourettes Guy, 01 Jun 2016Well I do believe how fast a phone opens app also speaks how the phone will perform in real li... moreYes the X performance would be a better comparison vs the S7, only difference is screen resolution. But the price of the X performance might be over 900$ which again, not worth it
Tourettes Guy, 01 Jun 2016Yes only SD650 yet it kills the HTC 10, LG G5, iPhone 6s, Galaxy S7 (Exynos), and even the P9 ... moreI've watched the one vs the galaxy s7.. And no it does not 'kill' the S7.. It comes close to matching the speed.. But, it does not beat the S7..
Paddyman, 01 Jun 2016Yes Sony have done a brilliant job refining the software and very clever squeezing the perform... moreI don't know where you are posting from, but the Xperia X from Carphone Warehouse UK ships with a Sony UCH10 fast charger
Ciro123, 01 Jun 2016TrueIt didnt "wrecked" them. Dont bend time and space just to state your point.
Xperia X have good performance, but its not best, and STILL overall package that you get is bellow average in that price range.
Maybe chips is snappy in some basic situation, but in more heavy tasks its still behave like midrange, and most important, rest of hardware, like camera, sound quality, additions(like charger) and lack of waterproofing that was strong point of every xperia device is gone.
Tourettes Guy, 01 Jun 2016The Xperia X's pricing in the US is only $500 which I think is still mid range for those peopl... moreAnd I'm telling you the speed tests aren't a good measure of performance and that the galaxy a9 seems to perform at similar speeds of the xperia x, so the xp would probably be at the same speed of the s7.
And the US price is $550, flagships usually launch at $700 there but the s7 is closer to $600 since is been 3 months or so since release. The s7 also came with a free vr headset or smartwatch at release, Sony doesn't even give headphones.
Grey1213, 01 Jun 2016Not really. The galaxy a9 was comparable to the s7 the same way the xperia x was. And the p9 h... moreThe Xperia X's pricing in the US is only $500 which I think is still mid range for those people who live in the US. In fact, you really can't compare a mid range to a flagship, but the Xperia X was just destined to perform as good as flagships. Like I said, the Xperia X Performance should be the phone to compete with the P9 and S7 but from what I'm seeing right now with the Xperia X will be much better on the X Performance
Tourettes Guy, 01 Jun 2016Well I do believe how fast a phone opens app also speaks how the phone will perform in real li... moreNot really. The galaxy a9 was comparable to the s7 the same way the xperia x was. And the p9 has half the GPU score of the z5c and a third of the s7. I'm not sure you boasting about the xperia x being worse than that is helping to make your point of it being flagship level.
In Greece there are at least 5 different resellers that have the phone ready for instant delivery in shop or shipping in 1 to 3 days on your door. Color availability includes Graphite Black, Rose Gold, Lime Gold and White and despite Sony sells it 629 euros, there are already shops offering it in limited color options for 529 euros. It's been here almost a week. An equivalent version of best buy in Greece called Skroutz-dot-gr lists every shop and its availability, just for reference.

Of course the S7 and P9 is slightly more powerful because of a little bit better GPU, but that's just the Xperia X. The X Performance has the real deal of a flagship phone, and if it would compete with those two, there'll probably be no comparison at all
A Note 4 user, 01 Jun 2016It's clear they don't mind selling few of their smartphones. Last year, i barely see Sony smar... moreTotally agree with their being more interesting smartphones. Huawei is taking their own chipsets and are doing pretty well (except the disgusting GPU performance), and other brands like zte are popping up with amazing, premium looking phones with no concessions for relatively cheap. and they're becoming increasing accessible in the west, carriers would probably start offering them within the next couple years.
So brands like Sony really can't afford to be missing out on so many things like display and fingerprint sensor, charge a premium, release late, and then still manage to be successful.
Ciro123, 01 Jun 2016In dvdandorra.com 499 eurosIt's clear they don't mind selling few of their smartphones. Last year, i barely see Sony smartphones at all. At this price, it makes sense to look elsewhere, there are a lot of interesting smartphones coming up. Maybe Sony has unlimited access to funding and do not have to care about sales and profitability? Who knows...
Tourettes Guy, 01 Jun 2016Yes only SD650 yet it kills the HTC 10, LG G5, iPhone 6s, Galaxy S7 (Exynos), and even the P9 ... moreThe s7 exynos did better, so did the p9. And there is more to a chipset than how fast it can open apps lol. The GPU is worse than last year's devices for example, and how good it deals with heavy usage.
In Lithuania (operator Omnitel) 599 Â€ + Sony Xperia M4 Aqua for 0.01 Â€
In my country(Greece) the X is already available for 529 from some stores.The ones stated in this article must be the full retail price.Wait for just a few days and they price will be quite lower.
