SaRPeR, 26 Jun 2016This means 72% of voters are thinking logically. Who would buy a mid-range phone with Snapdrag... moreX Performance has SD820. The regular X has SD650. Do your homework before posting lies.
I will buy an XP. Why?
5" FHD on SD820. I'm not into QHD displays, I don't give a fly what camera it has, I'm not gonna use it anyway along with nfc, radio, bluetooth, speakers.
And also cos I don't want a Samsung. :D
I have the money for it. I'm not a complaining b..h about the price tag.
You don't like it go buy a Chinese crap and spare us the details..
I'd have a damn hard time imagining a solid reason to buy this phone.
I support the results of this poll....Sony fans wouldn't. ..but that's okay tho...the truth is that Sony flagship phones are not relevant and don't offer any competition to the other brands. .the x performance is the worst flagship of the year period,and it's not yet available in most countries...lol
Ali Bashir, 26 Jun 2016Wow, 28% pure sony fans, 72% multiple brands, sony is beast.This means 72% of voters are thinking logically. Who would buy a mid-range phone with Snapdragon 650 and 3GB RAM when you can buy a phone with Snapdragon 820 and 4GB RAM around the same price or cheaper ?
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2016Hahaha...would prefer this X Performance than any phones out there just because it's Sony. Hat... moreI hope that's a sarcastic comment, if not its a candidate for 'dumb comment of the day' award.
So all you look for in a device is four letters in a certain order??......well good luck with that.
To the majority of those out there who enjoy the act of actually thinking however, it would seem this device does not represent good value for money.
The next 4 moumths xperia performance 450 euros 72% yes, xperia x premium 799 euros no
The reason why i dont like x performance was too little battery they should go with 3,000 mah or higher all the specs seems ok.
Wow, 28% pure sony fans, 72% multiple brands, sony is beast.
Hahaha...would prefer this X Performance than any phones out there just because it's Sony. Hater's gonna hate! Troller's gonna troll!
I have no idea how companies like Sony or HTC think that bumping prices would help them... it doesnt work like that. If its just a chocolate candy, phone or car. It just doesnt work like that.
And best part is that they trying really hard to put their devices in bag of "exclusive and premium" using only their name and some metal body... metal body, even good quality is nothing new today, and it really cheap, even if you would brag about it like htc, "that it take few days of advanced crafting to create this body" Its pure F Bulls### and its pure marketing jabbering. metal/aluminium device with all its R&D would cost about 280$, thats cost of creating iphone6 and latest galaxy device.... almost the same price of older flaghips... bump in price is pure greed.
And Sony? Sony this year lost so much that after almost 20years of using their products I think that I give up supporting them, because even latest cameras and ideas of PS are weird and ldliotic.
Xperia X and XP are perfect example of putting to much fate in their own brand, and they though that people would buy it just because of it.
They have no idea how to fight with cheaper and better devices from china, and how to behave in world where brand name with every year mean less and less... even Apple realize that.
Those who voted 'No' definitely won't buy this phone.
And those who vote 'take my money' only a few of them will buy it, bcz most of them are kids.
HigherPrimate, 26 Jun 2016I went for the Z5 instead, don't regret it for a sec, excellent phone.Would have done exactly the same (if I wouldn't prefer iPhone)
jraympres2, 26 Jun 2016Now a days fragship is not worth it, theres no called future proof in mobile world (specially ... moreNope, M4 Aqua (midranger from 2015 about that price) is Even Worse. Better buy an older flagship like Galaxy S6, Xperia Z3+, HTC One M8/M9, iPhone 5s Ort The Chinese cheap Phones like Xiaomi Mi5, OP3
I bought Z3. It cost 300eur with tax.
I didnt noticed that X is faster then Z3.
But it is twice expensive.
Sony should have sticked to the old naming, to the glass back panel, to The metal frame, maybe to the lanyard Support because that was something unique, to the waterproofing in the midrangers, to The Price for The Upper midranger (M5) and lower midranger (C5 Ultra), to the speaker Design of Z2/3+/5 (while I have to say I really Liked The Z3+ because it was a good evolutionary step, only SD810 Killed it), to the bigger battery, to the slimmer bezels (despite of Z1, The X is The only high End Sony Device which has more bezels than its predecessor), should have Used USB Type C, Fingerprint on all devices (it's not expensive, Even Samsung can do ist without overpricing their devices too much), Lower pricing für X Performance, X and XA. The Last Thing is not about This bunt please Sony, don't flood The market with Phones that no One buys (XA Ultra für example). Instand, update your older devices als Long as you can. With every Update (if you gave them to us) The devices get faster. That means that your costumers are more satisfied and will again buy a Sony. And The Sites like gsmarena can say that Sony devices have Long Update Support which Would be an advantage. My M4 Aqua had 2 Little bugfix updates Since i bought it. It is still in Android 5.0. They announced it 9 months ago that it'll get Android 6.0. Now, Android N is coming. Sony France Said that M4 Aqua and M5 will get it At The End of The month of MAY. I'm happy When 6.0 is Here, I don't Even Ask for N.
I really Hoped that you can get a fast, stylish, waterproof and Long supported Device for less Money, but I was wrong. Next Fall, I'll invest again 700Â€ into a new iPhone which has all of these Things (Despite of The waterproofing). Ist will be as fast an The flagships from 2017, not like These of 2012. It will Look Good, Not as stylish as an older Sony with a Glass back Or a new Samsung, but It'll be Handy. It will have a good camera. And of course, it'll have Update Support Format lebst 5 years (like iPhone 4s now had). So I can keep it that Long because I don't like to have a Phone with a very outdated software. (And CM isn't available For M4 Aqua).
Sony, I think it's about time you look at your two friends HTC and BlackBerry, go stand next to them, and all 3 of you take a bow and hit the road. Companies which become complacent and irrelevant in times like these do not deserve to be still charging premium prices for backwards-thinking flagships. The ball game has changed and all 3 of them are facing annual losses - it all comes down to how competitive your products are against the top dogs (are they just another option or are they actually better) and the last factor is obvious - pricing.
