Anonymous, 21 Jun 2016I check the review from Anandtech, and your criticism is irrelevant to the review. Ok here you go then , the teo most important paragraphs from Anandtech:
Moving on to our saturations test, itÂ’s evident that Sony is targeting either a different gamut from sRGB or just using the native gamut of the display here as thereÂ’s fairly significant color error across the board. This occurs even with X-Reality and Super Vivid mode disabled, so I suspect the situation is even worse with either of those enabled. This wider gamut is quite noticeable as everything looks rather neon compared to something like the Galaxy S7 or HTC 10 with their calibrated modes. Basically the only color that is represented accurately here is yellow, and everything else suffers from significant oversaturation. Thankfully, the saturation curve is linear here so things arenÂ’t as bad as they might be, but these kinds of things are increasingly hard to justify when Xiaomi is shipping excellently calibrated displays in phones that cost hundreds of dollars less.
About storage :
Now that weÂ’ve gone over the test conditions, we can look at the actual storage performance, and storage performance is honestly at least slightly disappointing when Xiaomi and other OEMs are shipping significantly faster storage in phones that are hundreds of dollars cheaper. Sony is using Toshiba eMMC of some sort, but I wasnÂ’t able to figure out exactly what it was as the model name isnÂ’t anything that shows up on Google. Of course, itÂ’s possible for a phone to end up being faster than expected despite differences in storage performance, but this sort of cost cutting is concerning when pretty much all of the high-end phones in the market are shipping solutions that are clearly faster regardless of protocol and storage standard.

If they really wanted to stay in the game, they should have targeted new regions or new income groups and definitely should have provided products which are far superior to their competition. But instead they jack up the prices, keep specs subpar for price range and hope it all ends well? They would only lose massive market share than gain any because even fanboys can only swallow so much.
To me, a spectator to this Sony trainwreck, it looks like Sony is making one huge splash with some overpriced product before completely pulling out of the smartphones race. If a company lacks the tenacity or gumption to stay relevant in today's phablet/smartphone market then its best to step out of the race and focus on something that you are good at.
(This might be irrelevant, but this is starting to look like a SOE-type solution for their smartphone branch. Time will tell.)

They has huge overhead cost. They wish can make flagship cellphone with affordable price. Unfortunately they can not come with affordable price as Korean and Chinese cellphone maker, because they will loss with that price. There is no company want to sell product at loss. They did whatever they can just to be exist.

How come Sony never explained why they wont released the international version with finger print sensor in the US? And why their phones are more Xpensive than others and with low specs?
Better go bankrupt Sony.
Who still buy Sony at this day of the year?
HTC 10 here I come. The best android flagship of 2016.
No fingerprint scanner for a $700 "flagship"? No thank you, there are too many better options out there in the Android world.

Flagship device (X Performance) with only 2700 mAh battery, no OIS in camera, no fingerprint scanner, 3 GB RAM? And they want to attract US customers with that?
