Anonymous, 23 Feb 2016I agree, ram management is a gimmick, only numbers game when 4gb ram is utilized 80% on norm... moreAlso, always a smartphone ll be smart only if it has high performance with less inputs.......if a phone can work all day with 3000 mAh battery ,must work all day in 2000 mAh battery ...so thats wat we call an improvement......everything doesnt mean BIG or HUGE.....the matter of fact is SMART!!!
sony is sinking still there prices are relatively high!! why they dont learn there lesson..
I've always wanted to try the Xperia device but unfortunately, compared to the S7: worse camera (more megapixels 23 vs. 12 means the pixels in Sony are smaller and therefore capture less light. Additionally - there's no optical image stabilization on the Xperia so even worse pictures). S7 has bigger battery which is important to me. Also the S7 has 4GB of RAM and better display (QHD vs. FHD) although I don't care about anything bigger that FHD in phones.
So the Xperia falls behind in some key areas like camera quality and battery life.
and still sony is trying to figure out why are they failing?? Look at those huge bezels, samsung and LG have body to screen ratios between 70-77% and sony is maintaining 66% screen to body ratio....sad...
btw new material is nice but lets see of it is durable or not....
Caboodles, 23 Feb 2016Their WATERPROOF is FULL OF CRAP. Don't Buy it because it's a waste of money. Get the X or XA ... moreWaterproof feature is great, it always safe my smartphone from rainy day and dirty.
big bezels and not 4k recording.in other hand sony dedicates us awful battery. 2016 phones need more than 3000mah
come on sony
It looks like Sony is too shy to unveil Xperformance's price. But if the X to cost Â€599, x performance will be Â€699. The same price with S7.
I still dont get why sony phones are always too pricey. The hardware is standard, light modded UI, no additional hardware. I thought its because producing waterproof phone is very complicated and costy.
Now, Sammy also has that feature and the price is still more reasonable.
Their WATERPROOF is FULL OF CRAP. Don't Buy it because it's a waste of money. Get the X or XA since same specs without this Shity feature.
why 3GB Ram?? snapdragon 820 has 4gb.it has adreno 530 but screen is fullhd instead of QHD
and like always there is no ir Port,how dissapointing
okay now i understand that's why there is no z6.. because of this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0t311N68o9w
:) goodluck then we wait for the future phone from sony
Sony trying to dig their own grave, I see.
They release a "little less than a flagship" phone which is better than their already released full fledged flagship (which is only a few months old)
Strangely, the X series phone will only be released after 4 months, and by that time, hype will die for the series and people lose interest. And a few months after X Performance releases, Sony will release the Z6, making the X Performance pointless.
Sure, the X Performance is an amazing phone, but was it necessary to release it this soon? What about the Z5 owners?
raymond21, 23 Feb 2016the ugliest Xperia that ever made.
Thanks, it wasn't Xperia Z6.
same old design. rectan... moreSpeak for yourself.. I for one will definitely buy the X Performance.
I hate round devices. They look cheap.
But what makes me buy it is that it has the same hardware as S7:
- SD 820
- Adreno 530
- 3 GB RAM
- SD card.
And i want a 5 inch phone on FHD. QHD drains the battery and i dont want a bigger screen anyway. Not into phablets at all..
