the X series already lost even before the fight begins, reason:
1. Time to market too slow (Sony's major problem over the years) while spec is not the best. Competitors have sold tens of millions when Sony products actually become available to market. Fail to capture most revenue and profit.
2. Priced way too high then later reduced significantly, buyers will wait a few months so again fail to capture revenue.
AnonD-56158, 21 May 2016Sony like all Japanese electronics manufacturer can no longer compete against the Koreans and ... moreSony never exit from moblie world, still sony has edge over chinees and koreans in quality, and this phone is simpaly amazing.
Iphone 5 and 5s have better camera than this flop expensive device.
If you really love xperia brand, you should buy Xperia Z2, Z3 Z5 or the M5.
This is the end of Sony Mobile.
They have very bad reputation in terms of camera and still tgey didn't fixed it upto now.
Sorry for my bad english. I'm Indian
Sony like all Japanese electronics manufacturer can no longer compete against the Koreans and Chinese manufacturers not only in price but soon in innovation. Its a matter of time before Sony exit the mobile phone business.
Great phone! Can't believe the price though.... Is it for real?!
AnonD-469228, 21 May 2016Truth my z3c heats up too quickly whenever recording 4kOnly thing heating is Sony's sales. Hehe
AnonD-442781, 21 May 2016That's the thing, it isn't. You can get an iPhone 6s for £539 on their website. The xper... morethat's what I was telling this one dude here but he can't understand since he hates the fruit Apple
AnonD-284211, 21 May 2016You all should try this X in person to know what it really is_ somehow the reviews are just of... moreThat's the thing, it isn't. You can get an iPhone 6s for £539 on their website. The xperia x costs £460 and is only a midrange. This is quite literally the most rip-off phone of 2016. It doesn't even have the SD652.
Given the concessions of the x performance in terms of display/ less ram/ etc, if i was told it was the x performance with that price tag I'd have believed it.
Anonymous, 21 May 2016Nope. Only people with more money than brains would buy this.Called the High end user, which we appreciate value.
Sony = high performance, quality and terrific performance specs.
Oh yes SONY, marvelous job on this X model, congrats 2016!!!
Good phone,but crazy price.... even the M5 has more features....
AnonD-531620, 20 May 2016Do Sony pay any attention to their rivals, as the review says HTC released the A9, a good look... moreOh yeah, like cheap Chinese craps! Including xiaomi, lenovo, blu and meizu! Buy those cheap chinese craps and forget quality!
Sony is the only oem to lower battery in numbers but actually, it's better than predecessors.
AnonD-284211, 21 May 2016You all should try this X in person to know what it really is_ somehow the reviews are just of... morereally? my XPeria broke for 2m drop kid, don't be to sure about your opinion, it's yours, not all of us subscribers, I can buy an iPhone with the same price of some XPeria series, you're just an Apple hater

RIP sony without removable batteries.
You all should try this X in person to know what it really is_ somehow the reviews are just of one's opinion. Sony asks for a premium price but not like apple though their phones look equally premium. In my opinion, you will never appreciate an Xperia if you haven't used one in person. It just feels good and it won't break no matter how you drop it. :)
