H.265 has nothing to do with the camera. It is something that tvs and stuff have, it is for viewing videos, not recording them. That's why if you look st the spec sheet is says "h.265 player" not "recorder" or any other word that implies recording. If you don't believe me then look it up.
Stop dreaming, Sony doesn't care about their fans enough to give 4k recording on their overpriced phones.

Read the Xperia X whitepaper, inform yourself before trolling please.
X Compact will be presented at IFA in September most likely. Compacts are only released once a year, not twice like the flagship cycle. I think September will see X-Premium and X-Compact. Hopefully they manage the pricing a little better than the current Xs though....

That is an important feature for audiophiles who want hi res sound streamed via their bluetooh sound device....
H.265 enables 4k recording through camera api2 at half the memory consumption than h.264 devices, and native, not upscaled 4k videoplay....
Those are really good and important features
Why you hate and purposely bash good unique features of this phone?
Why do you troll like this?
What in the world is wrong with you?

Do you seriously not understand that its not in any way relevant to the camera? But its quite funny to see you fantasizing about Sony's rip-off phones having actual flagship features. XD

Samsung has the most accurate display currently.
You clearly don't know anything about displays and you're clearly a Sony fanboy. Why you think saying you think sony display is perfect has any value I don't know. You're almost as bad as the other don't fanboy, but you're jot quite at his level yet.

AnonD-265341, 24 May 2016the only bad thing about this phone is the price, everything else i like :)For what it offers, even the price is OK with me
Cameras perform better than flagships,
Has h.265 native support which flagships dont,
has ldac support,
Has Dual stereo speakers and hi res sound,
has qnovo battery equal to flagships,
Medium SoC is even better than sd808,
UI works flawlessly...
Its a really, really good phone
Oh, this midranger has h.265(HAVC) support in video playback and video recording :-)
Means it can record and run 4k video natively
Means you can just download and use any 4k video recording app from playstore....
None of flagships have that....
the only bad thing about this phone is the price, everything else i like :)
LLL, 20 May 2016An HTC would feel much more worth it in the face of this and its price.And htc has a way better aftersales service than sony

And this phone sc... moreIf anything is not hood as per your opinion then why you wasting your time here everyone knows Sony Xperia is not famous for hanging issues like Samsung, Sony IA famous for best battery, Sony is the onky brand who provide camera sensors to 60% mobile manufacturer, no one able to compare sony's Walkman music player.
Dear as per the daily uses Sony is the best phones
-1080p is alright but its CHEAPER, its only for midranger or cheap flahship. And this phone screen quality isnt good, it cant recover from burn like other phone, i think it cost only half of LG 2K quantum dot ips, no way 1080p is costier than 2K.
-3gb ram is alright for light modded ui, its smooth enough but again its CHEAPER(fact), theres no way 3gb ram is costier than 4GB LPDDR4 RAM.
-Plastic construction with metal back is CHEAPER (fact)
- SD650 is cheaper than sd652 and far cheaper than 820 (fact), Sony fan will say its good enough, but again its CHEAP.
-UI. They only change icons, lockscreen, cheap. Everything is still stock. If its smooth its google who deserves credits.
The fact is its cheaper in almost everything. And miles cheaper overall.

Its like If you watch a movie with 1080p and your phone supports 4k , you still get the 1080p, it's simple Engineering for you to understand. Let's go back to real life and discuss about when you said "Display is far more important than you seem to think", One day I was at the market and I saw LG4, I simply hold it with my own hands and started to compare it with the Sony Z4 screen. It was obviously uncomparable. The clearance of and the pure colors were basically sharp and stunning for Z4. Thats why I'm surprised how could sony still upgrade the 1080p screen and make it better with every single new device they announce. Here when we talk about the quality of Sony. Btw, for 5 inch screen, 1080p is all what you need.
No need to talk about Samsung because I only saw fake colors on that phone.( I still have galaxy Note3)
It seems endless conv. I got your point of needing of the biggest and biggest and biggest of every aspect without measuring each one by whether it's important.
So Good luck!

YouTube does support 1440p resolution, and display is far more important than you seem to think. On the other hand, the number of pixels in the Sony camera cause it to create a lot of noise and artefacts, I'd rather have a lower resolution camera with bigger pixels and not have to deal with Sony's poor camera processing.
Htc10 may have poor battery but it at least has a premium design, and it costs the same amount as the xperia x which is a midrange.
G5 has the modularity concept, and again, the xperia x midrange costs the same amount.
These phones also have standard flagship features like 4k recording, 1440p display, and 4gb ram. The x performance doesn't even have these things, let alone the x which is the same price as them despite being midrange.
If the xperia x performance was already out and was the same price, then it could compete with the htc10 and g5. It still wouldn't be able to compete with the s7 though, which is better in almost every regard.
AnonD-535358, 23 May 2016Ok I will tell you..
First of all I'll stick with the x performance since you mentioned it..
... more- 1080p is more than enough, it's not like sony reached it's limits!! just 9 months ago they were showing off with absolute "4K screen", while others were bragging with their QHD screens. For me I wasn't excited about that 4K screen as much when I went crazy for the enormous 23mp rear camera that is usable and needed.
-by numbers and facts, they gave us everything new. its a new generation phones that X Series comes with, see the display its way better than Z5 more clean more pure colors and for the camera its way better than z3 and how about the new design that fits perfectly in your hand as every reviewer said!! as you mentioned Apple, what did they gave us since iPhone 4? I was using iPhone 3G and iPhone 4, but after that I was sorry to say goodbye to Apple ( I am still so pro with their great Macbook). They still use the same camera of iPhone5, and how about the RAM?2GB? but it's still not that bad as long as they give you the best of the "little" they support. After that I went for the plastic note (I don't want to mention which brand because its not our subject), and with just one drop "by mistake", I knew I did a mistake by getting cheap device. since then I am using Sony phones and all I could say thanks sony for giving us solid unique phones, that we could use with self confidence.
AnonD-442781, 23 May 2016Design is poor. The front looks clunky and awkward and despite not having off screen keys it h... moreyou just mentioned it, the front stereo speaker is why Xperia X has those bezels which are not too bad. Everyone likes the looks of an iPhone, and you say they have same bezels amounts! So! Nowadays, all other brands have the same shape as iPhone "Super rounding", Sony has it's own unique shape, but with "Fresh Design". For me, I like sharp design feels more elegant.
The battery is better than HTC 10 and LG G5 when they are flagships and Xperia X is a midrange phone, let's wait for X Performance and see the reviews then. It's Qnovo Tech though!
I see photos and watch youtube videos, almost all of them need 720p or 1080p as highest resolution!! Users are so content with 1080p. and as you just mentioned iPhone, do u know that we are in 2016, and all an iPhone can support is "720p"!!!
on the camera side, gentleman they gave you 13 megapixels front camera while other phones still struggling with 12 mp rear camera!!! As I said they would give you what you are going to use, it's rare to use QHD screen, but you would need the 23 mp rear camera for precious moments.
But I agree with you by saying its coming out so late, they made us thirsty last February when they announced the X series and still didn't find its way through market, trust me because I know how much quality sony phones are, I am waiting for them to reach the market as soon as possible.
