Can you tell me more about the improved audio and also improved battery life?
I ask abou... moreBoth are same res screen, and the XZ is only a 0.2 inch bigger. The difference of power consumption of a 5inch FHD display and 5.2inch FHD display are negligible.
You can check out the reviews and find out the XZ' battery performs better than the X and XP. One area where the X and XP disappointed was the battery section.
And the XZ suports new audio codecs
"Xperia XZ sports an updated stereo dual microphone and speaker system with integrated noise cancellation to ensure more immersive 3D stereo sound quality and reduced background noise. Naturally, the phone also supports Hi-Res audio capability with DSEE-HX, LDAC, and automatic headset compensation support."

Can you tell me more about the improved audio and also improved battery life?
I ask about the battery life because the XP has a 2700 mAh battery with a 5.0" screen, while the XZ has a 2900 mAh battery with a 5.2" screen, so I feel like the difference is negligible. But maybe you can elaborate more (on both).
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2016More like upto him/her since when Xperia XZ get released X Performance will become cheaper....... moreDon't just look at the spec sheet and make a decision.
XZ has a better display, better battery, much better camera, and improved audio, new and better design, USB type C.
Battery life of the Xperia X and X Performance aren't good, XZ improves a lot on that. And with the new battery care feature, XZ's battery will retain its performance throughout its life span.
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2016Neither, wait for the Xperia XZ.More like upto him/her since when Xperia XZ get released X Performance will become cheaper....
Their spec aren't that much different besides Camera Improvements, Design and Size .2" Difference....
Overall go for what you prefer....
Guada, 15 Sep 2016this or the iphone 7?Neither, wait for the Xperia XZ.

Instructions are here.
Since the US version have their fingerprint sensor deactivated, can I flash like the International Version Firmware to activate the fingerprint sensor? Or maybe change the CSC so it'll get the International Firmware Instead of the US?
AnonD-418316, 21 Sep 2016So i bought the note 7 today, i mean i thought its gotta be an awesome phone!

Yeah I'd take the X Performance ANY DAY over the Note 7. I don't like phablets, and I had the S7 Edge for 2 weeks and S7 for 4 months............the S7 was a nice phone overall, but also a big letdown for me personally. Maybe at 5.5" or 5.7" the 2K screen is nice, but even at that point I still don't know if I agree it's worth the extra battery power loss, esp if the apps are not optimized to it.
My reasons for not liking the S7 (which should transfer over to the Note 7 since specs are about the same):
1) TouchWiz & Settings Menu: Yes, TouchWiz is still quite LAGGY. Despite having 4 GBs of RAM, I've seen the phone lag when transitioning from one app to another or even clearing the notification pane vs. my XP (and even the older Xperia Z1s), which only has 3 GBs of RAM, but runs SMOOTHER than the S7 did! When playing music through the MicroUSB port (with headphones), the S7 skipped every 3-5 min! 4 hours with the same setup on the XP? Didn't skip once! NOT once! Oh and the Settings menu on the S7, though improved vs. the S5's........... I still found it to be a bit confusing. Like it took me a few minutes to find "Location" where on the XP it was right there. Simpler, better.
2) Speaker: The single speaker on the S7 is beyond horrid. Drum sounds rendered like someone was shooting off a laser gun. Now the Note 7's speaker is much better, but still, NO front-facing stereo speakers like the XP. So to really hear the sound from videos and music clearly, you would have to tilt the Note 7. I'm guessing the Note 7's speaker for phone calls is better than the S7's, but I bet it's still not as clear as the XP's, though I haven't had a chance to prove this. I just know the S7's was def NOT clearer than my XP's, and I don't even have the benefit of VoLTE or HD Voice like I did with the S7.
3) Display & Camera: Yes, AMOLED screens DO tend to oversaturate certain colors. The XP's screen and also camera are more color accurate and JUST as detailed as the S7's and Note 7's cameras. (And keep in mind............Apple, Samsung and HTC ALL use Sony camera sensors on their flagship phones.) This comparison I'd found further proves yours and my point on the color accuracy:
4) Misc: I'm not a fan of the physical home button, and with the XP you don't have that issue. The fingerprint sensor is WISELY placed or integrated into the SIDE power button, which I like better because then you can use it one-handed. Makes so much more sense. I wish HTC had done that with the HTC 10. Placing it at the front bottom was I think them trying to be too much like Samsung or Apple, so I'm happy to say the 10's and iPhone 7's front button is actually not a button but a "haptic feedback" pad that doesn't really press inwards.
I've had the XP for months now. It's fast, smooth, takes excellent pictures, phone calls are crystal clear, stereo speakers, is QC 3.0-compatible (ignore any source that says it isn't, cuz it is!), has a premium build to it (I got graphite black with the brushed aluminum/hairline finish back.........sweet!), etc etc. I think the choice is clear. lol
So i bought the note 7 today, i mean i thought its gotta be an awesome phone!
I came from the iPhone 6 plus. Boy i was wrong, QHD screens are so pointless!! apps are just not yet optimised properly, touch wiz is horrible and feels so heavy! The phone gets so warm just doing basic tasks.
Sony looks really promising!! A 1080p screen makes sense from sony, apps aren't optimised over that yet so its good!. AMOLED is over saturated too!
The XP looks really good, thoughts?

Sounds like it might be a defective phone. I'd send it back and get a new one if you can. I don't have that issue.
with this sony xp. i have this red light at the speaker bar at top, when not plug in. Its very low light, on and off. like its telling me something is running in the background. but nothing is, i clear all. i think its part of why my battery is messtup and ive always had to have my stamina mode on. its weird that stamina can make my battery normal, turn it off and my battery drains within like an hour. ive always careless about removable battery, but that would fix it i bet. I hope im right that its because i didnt charge it before i power it on for the first time. i open box and turn it on and it was at 40%
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2016does it have fingerprint sensor? The international version has a working fingerprint sensor, so yes. The U.S. version has the hardware for it but not the software. So if that's important to you, then buy the int'l one like I did. Check here to make sure it's compatible with your carrier:
Markownikoff9, 15 Sep 2016Dude you're talking about the z3?? my Xperia z doesn't lag.I already said that Sony never lag.
Guada, 15 Sep 2016this or the iphone 7?Forget about iphone 7, choose between xperia x performance and xz, note that once the xz officially launched the x performance price should directly drop.
Guada, 15 Sep 2016this or the iphone 7?
Up to you. I'd go with this though.........and I already did. lol I got the Graphite Black int'l dual-SIM one.
Anonymous, 11 Sep 2016Yes man. Sony never lag. My Z3 works very smooth till now.Dude you're talking about the z3?? my Xperia z doesn't lag.
