what .. smalller screen ? Only 5.0"
same RAM size ?
Same Camera ?
No frosted Glass ?
I will stick with Xperia Z5
Discontinuing the Z series, Sony admit defeat on the high-end smartphone market. And I am saying this as a Xperia Z2 user, and a big fan of Xperia Z series. Xperia X performance is supposed to be the new flagship but in some ways it's even inferior to its predecessor, Z5. 5 inch screen instead of 5.2? Why? I know the difference is not that big in absolute terms but on small devices like this it is really noticeable! In my opinion, the launch of the Xperia X series shows Sony's deliberate intention not to compete with SGS 7, LG 5 or other top devices. Rather, they would focus on, admittedly beautiful and well crafted devices which do not compete on the top end of the food chain, but just below that. Not to mention that there are strong rumors that X Perf will not be launched on major European markets, unlike the weaker X. Yes, SD 650 may be powerful enough (at least for now that is) but Sony has undoubtedly announced its weaker hand in the mobile phone business. Pity.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2016Performance? Enjoy your redraws with 3gb of ram (there are $100 phones with that little ram). ... more3gb of ram is enough for Sony. So better watch out whenever it actually does outperform Galaxy s7 or g5

Yea, people should consider your conclusions seriously.
P.S. I ll remind you of what you concluded when test results come in ;-)

You don't know what you talking about. Bringing screen resolution into it, in terms of speed, it ONLY affects graphics benchmarks/games, which I can't give one hoot about. It MIGHT win in a graphics benchmark only because it has a below par screen resolution. In all other tests any other flagship equipped with a SD820, Kirin 950 or a Exynos 8890 will beat it hands down.
Nope, there will be nothing more coming from Sony this year that can be considered a flagship other than the XP, thanks to their shrinking market share.
ICE, 26 Feb 2016Oh dear, you make massive claims but can't answer the questions (What flagship / when?)
Thi... moreYou cant even understand what you read in interviews...
And trust me , this Xperia performance will demolish every flagship with sd820 in benchmarks cause if FHD screen,, and will give that already-without-proper-testing-best-proclaimed s7 camera a run for its money, even probably better it, cause its the same bad OIS, lower mpixels, better pixel tracking camera, something like sonys predictive hybrid autofocus (although I believe xiaomi with 4axis OIS camera is only one presented that is really positively innovative )
And trust me again, flagship Xperia will come in september, just not under Z monicker, and just as it always did from Sony in last 5 years
But, you wont trust me,
you are here just to throw hate comments and chew bubble, and someone stole your bubble
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2016X Performance isn't a super midrange. It is a true flagship. Xperia XA is the super midrangeI fully agree with you, the blind fanboy can't see it. Sony released this X Perf thing to go head to head with the LG G5 and the S7 (all are flagships). And the XP won't win in any department, not benchmarks, not in screen quality, not it photo/video quality, not in audio output or battery life. Just wait and see. Yet they will all cost around the same. Less for more money basically.

This X Perf whatever is the flagship and there is nothing coming in September.
Nah trust me, I'm not worried, performance where it matters for me is CPU (not GPU, don't do mobile gaming) and photo quality (I'm not into video). And in those departments it's already behind before it's even on the shelf.
The Sony interviews are tough to swallow aren't they?

Furthermore, was Galaxy Alpha that did not have all the features but had the Soc power and ram equivalent to S5, a flagship?
Its quite easy to deduct

Tann Hauser, 26 Feb 2016Im no Sony employee dummy. You ll get your answer in september, as always... Hope they won't go replacing the X Performance in September. If they still continue this nonsense people will lose trust. Why would a person by a expensive flagship phone that will get succeed soon in 6 months?
