Also the uk support site of xperia X confirm the presence of the FM tuner
...but not in the specifications page...
hey guys, don't want to sound like a SONY hater or troll, but I have owned at least for different SONY handsets in the past ten years. My first one was t230 my last one xperia Z. How's I miss those Sony Ericsson days.....It is sad but I can no longer bring myself to buy a SONY handset. they've just lost it, just look at their designs guys, even Apple has changed,but not SONY...... xperia high end phones have the same boring design since the original Z. with little tweaks. Samsung does the same agreed, but I never thought one day one could compare SONY to Sammy. And he'll, S6 S7 edge are at least something new. All SONY phones are way overpriced. If it's durability you're talking about, both my xperia Z and L are in very poor condition! anyway given SONY's software upgrade support, you'll change it in max 2yrs.And let's say you have different experience with SONY, but you can't deny the following problems with all SONY phones:
2. except flagship, all phones have slightly dated innards, always
3. Updates? what's that? that's only for the high enders.....or wait,wait&wait......
4.Camera...... all SONY phones have excellent cameras...wait! ONLY ON PAPER!!!! somehow they can't make the camer software algorithm right. photos will look good only on your mobile, that's it. on a PC ...... they are average at most. give are the days of SonyEricsson cybershot. now the pic quality is bad.... too much noise, white balance off, bad low light..... I now own a Moto X play....... for half the price of an XA and the camera is arguably the best there is. period.
My point is if you're asking so much money at least give people something exclusive, apart from looks..... this XA they have brought out,at least give it a fingerprint reader for godsake.... even the new Moto G4 has one again for half its price. No wonder, the company's going downhill. At this rate the end is near. Wish they never broke up with Ericsson........I sound like a very disappointed ex...... but I really am :-(
You're kidding. That kind of price, and the camera still doesn't have OIS. Not interested.
rhynn, 22 May 2016if this mid range phone is better compared to all mid range phone, then expect its little expe... moreThe problem is the only people who buy midrange phones are those who don't want to spend the money on a flagship, that's the whole point of midrange phones. But the price of this phone is higher than flagships, which is absolutely ridiculous. You would have to be certifiably insane or a tech illiterate to buy this phone.
I don't know what it's price will be in India...but at 25% less Z5 costs 40K..so xperia X will be around 50K..price range in which one can get galaxy S7, iPhone 6S, LG G5, S6 edge..
WTF sony, WTF.
i think the price tag really kills this phone... i could get a Galaxy S7 for the exact same price on Amazon over here. somehow i don't like Samsung as a brand, Sony definitely got me there especially since i kinda grew up with it. had a PS1 as a kid which i "loved" and we had a Sony TV just like my grandparents. also had a PSP later. so last year i bought an Xperia Z1C to replace my dying LG P880.
but looking at this... i just couldn't justify picking the Xperia X over the S7. i prefer Sony's design and software, but still feel like the S7 just offers considerably more value.
Samsung is already the dominant and almost unrivalled brand for Android phones here and the expensive Xperia X series might just make things worse for Sony. which would be a shame...
rhynn, 22 May 2016I compared the phone camera of experia x to samsung s7 edge using ISO and GOOD light, sony exp... moreAgreed
But looking into compare tool here and other Xperia X and S7 compares on the net, I also disagree on lowlight...:
While S7 has noise, much oversharpening artefacts, a lot of color ghosting and pixel shading(crop is like a smudge mess), X has only more noise to it, all of above is absent.
Dxo mark testing will most certainly show what Im talking about...
kriegsherr, 22 May 2016Is Sony operation team out of their mind? No wonder they are almost out of business and counti... more"less than stellar midrange phones" ?!?
I understand you can dislike the price but come on...
this is the most stellar midrange phone on the market.
Dang! I cant stop looking at the pictures of this phone the design is so solid and premium jezz its godang super neat!!! Wtf!!!...good job sony i like it...
Is Sony operation team out of their mind? No wonder they are almost out of business and counting the loss. They have been updating their flagship every six months and repetition of the same old design every year, doesn't matter how gorgeous it is. charging premium money for less than stellar mid-range smartphones. I dunno about others, but surely I aint gonna buy a Sony phone with hefty premium price but looks the same like a phone from older generation.

lets just say Xperia X is THE best new non-flagship phone out there.
600Â€ should sound a bit more justifiable when you word it like that ...
I compared the phone camera of experia x to samsung s7 edge using ISO and GOOD light, sony experia x won the show, but s7 won to low light comparison .
if this mid range phone is better compared to all mid range phone, then expect its little expensive too.
Tann Hauser, 18 May 2016For a midranger with midrange SoC that has flagship features, better cameras than all flagship... moreI agree with you brah people now a days are ridiculous and dumb when they hear midrange what comes in there mind is it should be cheap without looking at the specs of the phone jezz...
HDR, 19 May 2016With this price ? No, hell no, no way!With this phone oh hell yes hell yes yes way...im gonna buy it...
Ah sorry ha its for anonymous not for you sorry buddy lol sht hhappes u know...:D
ha..., 21 May 2016Try compare both devices in photo compare tool and see the truth...Lol u want z5 compact instead of sony x haha your so funny brah...i bet you don't know how to compare...: D
