So you mean, the Xperia X, with Snapdragon 650 and a 2600 mAh battery and an 1080p screen, is more expensive than a flagship Galaxy S7 with top of the line everything ? Joke of the year comes from Sony :)
Anonymous, 21 May 2016Sony is making 20% profit? please show me where you got this info, because as far as i know, o... morehttp://www.mobileworldlive.com/featured-content/home-banner/sony-sees-mobile-profit-boost/
you can find this info elsewhere too. they are selling fewer smartphones but at a higher price, thus the profit.
The prize for the xperia x is to high only a few people will buy this phone you almost buy the z5 premium for that prize it aint so much moore expensive i woulnd buy this phone it is better to wait for the real deal at ifa in berlin there sony will show the real deal but i guess the prize for the new x series will go down rather quickly and
quality is not cheap,sony always build perfects phones,and this is another one
best cameras always,best battery's,best looking,and long years update
samsung only upgrade s5,s6s7 to android 6 but sony upgrade z1 5 years old phone
anyway as someone who works in a phone shop for 4 years,i'm sure sony always is the best
samsung and huawei devices always stop working,or find some issues in them after one or two year,but sony devices is solid rock,i have a sony xperia xp for 5 years ago and it's still works amazing,trust to sony you will not regret
I don't want to speak about price because Sony is number one for me. I have Z3 and don't want to upgrade as it performs very good in everyday usage. After few years I will buy new phone and it will be Sony for sure.
Asdadasfff, 22 May 2016Swiftkey? Doesn't sony have their own keyboard app?Yup, it has, probably on the phone too as an option, and its freely downloadable if you prefer it..
Big Daddy, 22 May 2016Yep, I'm also keen to know that xDHe is right:
In my country for ex, this e-kupi site (not allowed to share link) is equivalent to amazon
Iphone6s for 5000
Galaxy S7 edge for 6300
Galaxy S7 for 5600
Z5 for 4500
New Xperia X for 4900
Anonymous, 22 May 2016So what country are you from, that Samsung is more overpriced than Apple?Yep, I'm also keen to know that xD
AnonD-442781, 21 May 2016On eBay you can get:
Galaxy s7 for £460
Xperia z5 for £360
Galaxy s6 for £... moreDont want to go into that argumentation all over again, but... Z5 chip does not overheat, is slower but does everything s7 one does and is still better in graphics performance, has 87 point camera against 88 "much better" S7 camera, batterylife as better in browsing as it is lower in videoplay, has better soundsystem, screen is a preference only as for many lcd is better, for others its not ....
So no, IMO its not worth 100£ more
If you found s6 for 300£ then I guess it could for some be an even better bargain than z5, but for me not, as it lacks sd card support, waterproof ip rating, stereo speakers...
Any smartphone manufacturer can price their product as high possible, and then the consumer will make decision if the product price tag is worth paying for. Apple price their iphones higher than any other phone, and many consumers are willing to spend their money on a iphone. Sony mobile is in this predicament because consumers are smart, overpriced and without any technology and features advantages, so they moved on to other brands that have the same features and technology as Sony at a much lower price...
As a sony fan i have to agree on some keynote address here but not everything, they need to reconsider they're ridiculous pricing...
And here one would think a smaller screen size at 5-inches, a lower screen resolution at 1080p, and a less powerful CPU and GPU of 650 should be able to surpass the 80+ or 90+ endurance ratings of other top-end flagships donning an S820 or even an Exynos 8890
Haha even until today every single entry from the Z and X series failed to match the Z1 contrast of 1:1500+ and they still dare to ask for such a high price. Can't wait to see this phone to reduce by more than 50% in less than a year.
Reaper, 21 May 2016Xperia is not for everyone to handle. Take it as Rolls Royce, just for premium consumers. So i... moreDid you just compare one of the most elite makers of luxury cars to a phone? You obviously don't know the universe of difference in quality and elegance that the Rolls Royce has over a toy xperia phone. Even the level of craftsmanship and effort being put on just making one part of that car is much more than the effort to make all those relatively classless sony phones combined. Look, if you don't understand the true meaning of luxury then don't you ever mention it nor compare it to a toy.
Tann Hauser, 21 May 2016Not entirely much to justify paying so much more...
Z5 is a better cost for benefit On eBay you can get:
Galaxy s7 for £460
Xperia z5 for £360
Galaxy s6 for £300
The z5 is the same generation as the s6 and has an overheating chipset, but costs £60 more, the galaxy s7 only costs another £100 more and is a next generation phone with much better performance, display, camera, etc.
The z5 is hardly value for money, they released it at the end of the last generation and have nothing to show for it but a higher price.
AnonD-531620, 21 May 2016Because s7 is better ? Not entirely much to justify paying so much more...
Z5 is a better cost for benefit
Tann Hauser, 21 May 2016Why would I buy s7 when I can get z5 for less?Because s7 is better ?
