Sony invited us over to Tokyo to give us a glimpse of the upcoming Xperia X - the pioneer in the company's new lineup that puts an end to 6 generations of Xperia Z flagships.
The Xperia X is not a direct successor to the Z5, mind you, this is a burden the Xperia X Performance will have to deal with. Instead, it ushers in Sony's new design language, which let's face it, does build upon the fundamentals of the old one.
The Xperia X also introduces us to most of the flagship's hardware, while still letting it keep exclusivity on some features - IP68 certification and top-class chipset in particular.
The Xperia X does get the top-spec camera of its bigger brother (or should we say wiser, as they're both 5-inchers) - that means 23MP maximum resolution, phase detection autofocus, and a f/2.0 aperture lens. What it misses out on is 4K video recording, which is inexplicably missing from the Xperia X Performance spec sheet, too.
We already got a chance to handle the Sony Xperia X a couple of months ago at MWC, so this time, we'll approach our hands-on with a focus on the camera department. We figured we'd spend the few precious moments we had with the phone on the important stuff.
sony is expensive coz its built quality is good and hardware is premium than samsung and lg
Sony quality is the best and the update is very impressive, I update my Xperia Z2 to Mashmallow, it so smooth and 100% no crash issue. I still wash my phone frequently.
Nonsense analogy, Sony mfgs sensors for both those companies. Hehe
