An addition to my review that I posted a couple of minutes ago.
The fingerprint sensor in the side power button is the best solution compared to other brands, even better than iPhones fingerprint button. I'm left handed, and I've registered my index and middle finger and it's really accurate even when pushing it with the lower side of those fingers. Alway accurate and instant unlocking. Oh and one more thing, it has double tap to wake which I really like.
Bought this phone today and after using it for the last couple of hours, all I can say is I'm really impressed! I came from a Galaxy S6, and the Xperia X is faster, smoother (SD 650 performs superb along with Sony's software optimization), it has Android Nougat (S6 still on MM), camera is great, also satisfied with the much better battery life (70% left after 2 hours screen-time).
The screen has a lower FHD resolution compared to the S6's QHD, but I actually prefer Xperia's display MUCH more, it has a higher max brightness and the colors are true to life and pure white compared to yellowish white on Samsung. I hope phone makers will continue putting IPS screens because I don't like AMOLED. When put next to each other and watching Instagram photos, the Xperia puts the S6 to shame, it's really beautiful so good job Sony :) And last but not least the build quality is really premium and it feels great in the hand not slippery at all. Now that I have the Xperia X, I realize how girly Samsung's phones actually are. A perfect phone for men especially in black color.
Bought this phone for 370 euro in The Netherlands. The S7 costs 610 euro , the Iphone 7 is 750 euro. So a very good price for the Xperia X with mid-range specs on paper, but literally everything about this phone is high-end when using it in real life.

Anonymous, 26 Jan 2017YEAH XZ is also twice or thrice expensive than z3So get your Z3 and enjoy.
shaj, 26 Jan 2017which color is best ?? All are great, it's just a matter of taste,you can choose any of them you like the best.
Guys, I have a question. Does any of you know or expect the Xperia X to get another update after Nougat? So will there be an update to Android Oreo or whatever they will name it?
Woland, 26 Jan 2017Sony claims there have a new technology in battery, so fast charging didn't short life of itI agree, i know what you are talking about, but still the slow charging better than fast charging for battery health, if not necessarily i prefer to not use it.
Looking at the official Sony website specifications, the standard Sony Xperia X doesn't have an official IP rating, but the Xperia X Performance model has an explicitly stated IP rating (IP65/IP68). However, from what I've found, the Xperia X still has tolerance to water/dust ingress (and has very similar external characteristics to the Performance model with open charger and headphone jacks).
Would it be worthwhile making a note that this model is unofficially water/dust durable? (to help people with phone comparisons)
Eagle eye 1, 24 Jan 2017Why!! Don't use fast charging, it will kill your battery faster. Sony claims there have a new technology in battery, so fast charging didn't short life of it
j., 17 Jan 2017Yeah it doesn't matter to me how old it is but yeah it is cheap now a days,,,, my strategy of ... moreZ3 is a good phone, the XZ is more better than Z3 overall.
Battery: XZ use the Qnovo Charging Technology and Battery Care to prolong the battery lifespan.
Camera: XZ use the Triple Image Sensing Technology to produce true to live color and faster autofocus even at night and start from X-series Sony had change the camera software algorithm from capture to saving image steps. The XZ's EIS also is the best image stabilizer on mobile for recording. 23 megapixels is more details compare to 20MP. Front camera 13 megapixels is more details for selfie and video calling usages.
Connectivity: XZ have LTE cat.9 and .dual band wifi means the wifi and data connection must be better faster than Z3. XZ have USB type-C and fingerprints scanner.
External body: XZ have front screen protect by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and the back cover is Aluminum Alloy made in Kobe Steel with register trademark name Alkaleido, it is very sturdy gorgeous and good to hold.
Internal storage: XZ is 64GB is more than Z3 (32GB).
