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.
This is really strange. If we look at specifications indicated on SonyMobile.com (Ukrainian version), the smartphone dimensions are different: 70,4 x 143,7 x 8,7 mm. This is a bit less than 144.8 x 71.1 x 7.6 mm (5.70 x 2.80 x 0.30 in).
A smaller phone would make more sense since it has a 5-inch display. If the phone is truly 144.8 x 71.1 x 7.6 mm big, then Sony failed, because they pushed a 5.2-inch display in nearly the same body in case with the Xperia Z5. This is a shame they still cannot reduce its height by a centimetre to make it more comfortable in hand. Although the smartphone is truly gorgeous without a glass back.
AnonD-77892, 23 Feb 2016hmmp now even Sony copying Apple now? Sony is running out of new ideas! aluminum unibody, very... moreCheck out sony ericcson days like xperia arc S. Still have that legend unit
I just wait the X series and now bang this is the Android future
Samsun s7 is so good from previous high end model (s6, lg4 and z5)
Just keep in mine that s7 is using sony very own sensor.. And sony X advance is not a flagship model, yes it is not :) the flagship will have moniker of sony premium and it uses 4k screen now with HDR just wait :) .. The contrast will be similar to OLED screen..
the ugliest Xperia that ever made.
Thanks, it wasn't Xperia Z6.
same old design. rectangle...so stiff...., at least they have new a little bit curved glass.
No camera software upgrade, they just count it to their sensor, Sony won't win the best camera. The 23 mp pixel is suck. I rather have 12 mp with better result than this one.
yet, low battery capacity...i think it will not last for 2 days. And no wireless charging.
wait...uhmm.....Ugly lockscreen....maybe we cannot change the wallpaper...
But the new interface is a little bit cool than previous xperia.
Really bad advertising....except the Xperia XA advertising video is really great.
so... sony is better not to release this phone...they should wait and think to make a great movement with the next xperia z series....i really hope there is a big change for the next xperia.
The price won't be cheap as using the sd820. Losing in every aspects to the s7. Hopefully the Xperia x price will be inline with samsung a series. Or else it's a completely lost of sony versus korean brand techs and chinese brand price.
AnonD-434597, 23 Feb 2016Why not we talk about the camera? S7 has the leading f/1.7 appeture, best dual pixel autofocu... moreyep! Camera in s7 is a lot better than this one however the Z5P , LG G4 and BB PRIVE has the MHL connectivity However LG4& PRIVE are all let down by there sd808 soc's only Z5P is somewhat better in offering the quality MHL connectivity & it seems that with this new sony x line of smartphones have dropped that MHL usefull feature with this line of smartphones....i guess the main reason is cause the sd 820 and the new Exynos and there advanced GPU's are now well equiped with the console like gaming quality and companies like MHL and slimport are asking a higher amount of money to intigrate there technology to these latest piece of tech smartphones...
bezel, 23 Feb 2016design is so bad they can't even show it from the facing side, they can only show sideway phot... moreYea, they definitely dont want your money...
They will get mine instead, and good for them as Im not as delusional.
AnonD-506410, 23 Feb 2016at first people ask 1 GB ram is needed.....even thoug they use same whatsapp and face book....... moreI agree, ram management is a gimmick, only numbers game when 4gb ram is utilized 80% on normal use, with out any games, what's the catch. Windows still have 1_2gb ram and asphalt 5 can be played flawlessly. Just higher higher ram does no credit to its performance. Now we understand that numbers are played to customers mental satisfactionn notno
AnonD-434597, 23 Feb 2016Why not we talk about the camera?
S7 has the leading f/1.7 appeture, best dual pixel autofocu... morePraising other brand with no real life samples or testing much?
I think Sony will AGAIN take the crown for best camera
What do you think?
design is so bad they can't even show it from the facing side, they can only show sideway photo! :D
omg sony what are you doing, no progress at all, for years the same: ugly designs with huge bezels, weak batteries, below average cameras even on flagships, same technology for years and horrible prices. you really, really don't want me to give you money, do you?
AnonD-100398, 23 Feb 2016Does it have the MHL connectivity? or sony have also dropped this usefull feature to save on t... moreWhy not we talk about the camera?
S7 has the leading f/1.7 appeture, best dual pixel autofocus and smart OIS as usual.
And sony still uses their best sensor with standard formula, and unaccomplish software.
What do you think..?
