the camera in sony will always be a disappointment no matter which camera but Samsung takes the camera from Sony but why the camera on sony are so bad compared to Samsung!
BTW in Hong Kong
X performance cost HK$4980 ( 440 quid/ 576 euro/US$638) , seems expensive in UK? maybe the 20% VAT
it's noted that iphone is also cheaper here as well
but the samsung S7 is around the same price as x performance

sony's advantages over samsung
LDAC = audiophile quality wireless audion 3 times bitrate of standard bluetooth
ps4 remote play ( LG G5 has aptx hd - but that's 33 less bitrate/double bluetooth - aptx hd headphones cost more than ldac as well and there is only one so far)
native ps4 dual shock controller support
CEC compatible mhl ( allows TV/Amp remote to control and use the phone menu while plugged in)
UI much closer than nexus
You're totally right but this won't get through those thick skulls of Sony Fanboys

Less battery life
Lower resolution and poorly calibrated display
No 4k recording and most likely an overheating camera (all Sony phones have had this problem to some extent), camera has a lot of processing and pics are often blurry and filled with artefacts.
And the thing is despite that it'll still be priced higher. You do get front facing speakers but that's about it for the pros really. If it was even slightly cheaper then it would be worth considering, but its more expensive.
I'd rather by the Huawei 6P. Waaay cheaper and better in most aspects.

Currently you can get an s7 for £400 (international version, normal one is £450) on ebay so unless this phone has a price of at most £400 on eBay it just isn't worth it, since it has so many flaws. Chances are it won't drop that low any time soon.
