Razor, 27 Jun 2016Xiaomi Redmi note 3 is a upper mid-range phone weather you like it or not. It's snapdragon 650... moreIf you dont mind the Xiaomi's ROM which is among the worst ones I've seen,you go that route.
But SD650 and 3Gb of ram,means nothing if the phone lags in real life.
More so,you did'nt need scientific proof!Just try launching the camera(and swaping between rear one and selfie) and you'll see how much faster and fluid is XA.
Build quality,again notch for the Sony.Sure metal body is great (if its made properly) not like the phone you mentioned.
Display,again better on Sony! Maybe its just 720p but its betterin any other aspect,which is more important in real life.Heck even the iphone has 750p display! So what?!

It's snapdragon 650 processor destroys the mediatek helio p10 processor. Do you know why sony didn't put a 1080p display? It's because the gpu on helio p10 sucks. It's mali t-830 mp2 gpu could not play asphalt 8 smoothly even on medium settings. Camera aside redmi note 3 is all around better phone. And build quality on redmi note 3 is also very good. So I'm not sure how better the build quality is on this phone. Meizu m3 note is far cheaper and much better than this overpriced phone.

Your Low end devices Specs on paper look terrific on paper but where Sony separates itself.... is in its engineering and software. Also Sony's Quality and performance are second to none since they are durable and plus they have great updates. NLM

HD display exist since 2011. What is Sony thinking? They flaunt this new X series as if it is a big thing or a flagship. Why bother killing Z series if this is the kind of stuff they bring to the table?

That's why we can find many Chinese brands like Xiaomi, Vivo, LeTV, and many local brands offering impressive specs and low price. Companies like Sony and HTC and Motorola, Samsung don't do that.

Redmi note 3 isn't semi flagship in any regard. Display is higher res than XA but color reproduction and brightness is better on XA. Camera on the Redmi Note 3 is impressive on paper but in real life it's even worse than my LG K10's camera. Redmi has better processor than XA but the GPU performance would be better in CA. Lastly design is much better in XA.
Xperia XA is a midrange phone in all aspects.
Anonymous, 27 Jun 2016Well I am the one. Since it released im waiting for it. I am very happy wit all my Sony mobile... moreand yes j7 hanging up because they used 1.6 ghz octa core processor of exynos which is there own processor. so samsing is not for u even i also dont like samsung.
Anonymous, 27 Jun 2016Well I am the one. Since it released im waiting for it. I am very happy wit all my Sony mobile... moresee if u love sony u buy it, but it has only 2200 mah bettry and helio p10 chipset and helio p10 is not a good chipset may b the screen size is small and it has only 720p display but the processor take ur half of the bettry so again bettry life is not goos... if u want to see go and check the review . and yes in 20000 u can have snap dragon 650 and 652 or sd 410 is better then helio p10. and it priced so high thats why i m not going to by this one simple.
may b u dont like mi , le eco , even i also but lenovo zuk z1 , moto g4 and g4 plus are the best choise compare to this...
the last and only new thing is the camera has that hybrid focusing system and u r paying for this new feature 20000 sorry bro.
don't get me wrong but g4 plus and zuk z1 has better camera belive me, this phone has 5 inch of display so this phone will be very handy for u. and if u dont want belive me.
go to you tube and type GEEKYRANJIT , week ago he has diif between mediatek and snap dragon processor so i can have better idea.

I have not checked those centres but I know that Chinese company's service centers are real bad.. Even Lenovo in my area has bad service centers.. Sony is really durable... I would not change my mind at that though
I will buy it. I dont mind adding extra 5k more than j7 because I love Sony mobile and they have never disappoint me. Please those who says brand does not matter just answer me if there is no difference in a maruti suzuki and a ferari.
AnonD-522378, 27 Jun 2016who going to buys this mobile?? lol. we indian have better choice in 20000.Well I am the one. Since it released im waiting for it. I am very happy wit all my Sony mobile. I have try other brand also but Sony gives me satisfaction. So if you dont want to buy then dont but dont talk about other. Im Indian and I will buy this one 100% as I am fed up with my m2.

I will stay with Sony, it durable than others.
Samsung galaxy j7 2016 is better than this overpriced crap with such pathetic battery life
I am in my sense and I will buy this one. Not because I am rich enough but because of durability and performance Sony provides me. I have used spice,lava,Samsung 8 yrs ago and all didnt last for more than 1yr and then from 2011 onwards I started using Sony w8,sp,e4,c5 I gave them to my younger ones and all of them are still working not even once did they went to service center. And my next will be xa hope it will be the best.
