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....
AnonD-506700, 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..
faizan khan, 22 Feb 2016sony X series is the answer of samsung A series....no, Sony xperia x is an answer to a series. But not xperia x performance. It is an answer for Samsung galaxy s7 in terms of performance. It is currently fastest phone in the market if you look in this phone specs. FHD + sd820 will never be anything better in 2016. Just sad this phone lacks 64 GB internal storage. Also screen is LCD would love seeing super amoled because of small battery. Let's hope sd820 is worth that low battery. But screen size is just perfect. Bezels could be smaller.
Stop bitching about this phone looks cos obviously none of you Sony haters is going to buy it. I know that all of you haters will be happy if Sony fails so if this phone is what Sony's demise looks like, then, so be it.... now shhhh. We get it, it looks bad.... just, not everyone shares your opinion.
