My opinion on SONY X (Just my opinion after doing some reading+research,well of course am using it as well)
1. Is the price too high? Definitely!
Counter:But..... it's worth for a quality product. I used Z1 before and it lasts for more than 2 years and I have only one issue with it, the battery. (Maybe I am lucky? NO!) I used it to play games that require the phone to 'work very hard'.
2. Qualcomm 650 series are bad?
Seriously guys read the Qualcomm 650 capabilities. It wasn't that bad (Well, can't compare with Qualcomm 820 though but, the price will sure be different if they use 820 series. Regretfully, it was too bad that SONY did not use the newest 652 series but why bother to use a newer series and pay more if you just need a mid-ranger phone?
(Pay less get less, pay more get more, as simple as that)
3. Xperia X battery
Seriously, the battery they used is different and in fact they increased use a better battery which increases it life span. So a 2600+ mAH battery does not mean that it is the same with other brand phones which have the same capacity.
4. Xperia X awkward button position?
5. Comparing sony with Samsung ( I don't want to comment on the comparison made with HTC as I only used Nokia, Samsung, Huawei and Sony phones.)
Well, let us start with counting how many version of Samsung phone out there?
The quality? The specification? Do they really value quality?
Yes, please answer yourself.
6. All in all, sony X is a mid-ranger phone for a very high price but offer you a decent specification and quality. As I still believe Japan products (Sorry, a little bit bias here but I think it's true compare with Huawei and Xiaomi and other phones.As so far, I did not hear from my friends who are using the phone lasts for more than 2 years. Not sure about you)
In the end, this is just my personal opinion. You do not need to agree with me,cheers :)

Why so many people talking about ram? 3 gb is worthy, or they think that more ram means more speed,i don't know how much of ram the marshmallow use but i think 3gb already huge according to a smartphone.
its highly overpriced...
hybrid sim slots..

Z5 or ... morehow the speed of camera focus..its better then xperia z5 dual or same in xperia x otherwise xperia x performance is best option if u want to replace against xperia z5 dual..xperia x purchase against xperia z5 dual or xperia z5 is wastage of money...becz z5 hardware is much stronger and durable then xperia x..............
Disappointed to get hand on experieince of Xperia X yesterday. Not worth for the price. Z5 or Z3 are far better than Xperia X. No dedicated slot of micro SD Card as mentioned in the specifications. Rather in dual version have to forego one of SIM. Also design is not encouraging.

Anonymous, 06 Jun 2016Why would anyone buy this phone instead of a redmi note 3? Same specs for 1/3 the price, and ... moreBecause Sony is quality while Xiaomi is cheap crap. Have you ever even think why they have same specs but different prices? It's because low cost always have a catch. In case of Xiaomi, it is low quality.
