This is $ 299 device. One has to smoke something very strong to pay $500 for this device.
XtremE16, 26 Sep 2016XPERIA X Compact !! Wow great new camera features and brand new design. Why Sony Price up ?? ... moreTRUE, this phone is worth every penny but those trolls will still disagree anyway. If I were Sony I'll have 2 versions of each phone. One with less spec/attention but same processor that sells for $150 for trolls then another for there TRUE fans with there best quality specs at there normal price.

Anonymous, 26 Sep 2016Sony and HTC are much better than Samsung. It will lag after few months. Remember that.So what you are saying is that all what htc and sony care about is making phones that are smooth and every other aspects of a phone are ignored followed by insane prices. I see why they are all in the red.
I hope you wont say "we did nothing wrong" with crying on your sony bankcrupcy announcement
Hope they got a screen that doesn't crack as often as previous models. Such great phone with this one weekness...

Sony and HTC always worst pricing, I bet just after one month Sony will bring its price down because no one gonna buy this in $500. Market is flooded with cheap Chinese phones with good specs and you can also buy good branded phone in less than $500, go for galaxy s6 edge, iphone SE, oneplus 3 all better than this overpriced Sony crap.
Waw, what a decent price for the little beast,bravo sony, cheers :D
None would buy this when it knows that the galaxy s6 only $ 300 now,,,,,,,, sony better never try to become the apple will never be possible foreverrrrrrrr :D
Apple iPhone SE (64gb) = $450
OnePlus 3 = $400
Xiaomi Mi 5 = $350+
LOL @ Sony asking $500 for this!

They earn highest per unit profit after Apple and the highest ever per unit profit in the Android world. They have declared the last quarter in profit after couple of loss bearing quarters.
What should we do to increase our sales? Well, let's just bump up the prices even higher than before! That'll net us millions in purchases.
But unfortunately sony phone sales from year to year is GETTING WORSE, even oppo vivo lenovo their sales much more than sonY xPeria poor smartphones haha :D
Sony management after seeing reports that their new phone is selling well be like:
'' Oh NOOOO ,OK only one option is left , lets bump up the prices again , that should stop people from buying it ''
phone was available for $449 before a week ...and now is $500 LOL
I doubt that ''supply and demand' market rule is to blame...
