I don't know how much it costs now, but what I definitely know is that it is more expensive than the XPERIA XZ. I don't know what u will do, but it is basically your choice of either buying the XPERIA XZ or waiting for the price to drop even further for the latter

Do u want some people to be complaining about that in this forum site? Of course not. And also, I never consider myself an expert. I am a tech junkie, and can be referred as a type of tech enthusiast too, tech junkies may sound like they are experts, but they are not, like me, we are just normal people, but we keep updating ourselves with the newest type of tech knowledge. The ones that I consider the experts of tech are those with a diploma and they work with some computer engineering doing IoT, even those doing cyber security, those are the real experts. Still, I'm surprised that u read my comment from 2 months ago xD

Anyone can you tell how is the XZ because I like the XZ more than X Performa... moreIn fact, XPERIA XZ is my daily driver and the one I'm using to type to u now. It is great, performance is no different from my XPERIA X PERFORMANCE. But, the XPERIA X PERFORMANCE does not heat up as hot as the XPERIA XZ. Prefer the XPERIA X PERFORMANCE more though to be honest, but if u are into some 2018 game titles like PUBG for example, these smartphones aren't powerful enough to play those. It is still playable, but it lags which made the smartphone heat up. These 2018 game titles require a much more powerful chipset, like the SNAPDRAGON 845, and a much faster storage type, UFS 2.1, to help in rendering the game faster. How it will help in rendering? Well, before the chipset's GPU start to render, it have to go through reading and writing the data. So, the faster it is, the faster your graphics can be rendered. These 2 smartphones have eMMC 5.1, which is 3 times less powerful than the UFS 2.1 if u did use benchmarks like AndroBench that I used to compare the storage speeds. So, if u were to play those game titles, get at least the XPERIA XZ PREMIUM, SNAPDRAGON 835 is powerful enough to play these game titles. If not, then both of the choices u made would be applicable for your type of use. And also, me and Yasser are different people, we aren't the same user. The ip address is different, plus besides I wouldn't even think of creating a 2nd account , I just want to be original :)

I recommend u to only allow the smartphone being splashed, and not submerged, I told this to a lot of people here already, even my friends in real life. Even if u have a IP68 rating for your smartphone, do not ever submerge in water, it is not guaranteed that u will be 100% immune to watee damaging the internals, because every product a brand makes is not 100% perfect. They look identical from the outside, but it may be different from the inside. Some may have the parts not sealed properly, which is why I stressed the fact of submerging it in water a lot of times to people. Most smartphones should still work well with splashes even without the IP68 rating, but for submerging in water both types of smartphones aren't recommended, I heard some complaints here because of that, they think that having the IP68 u will be 100% immune to water, hence I hope that any people I encounter would not go that road and would listen to what I say about the IP68 rating

My XPERIA X PERFORMANCE on ANDROID 8.0.0 have improved a lot; a slightly faster and snappier performance, better multitasking and also, better battery life, it is just overall much more efficient than the version it first came

I always use Manual Mode for low-light, it takes better photos thanks to the tweaking but, the noise is still there. If u got a tripod, Superior Auto will work best and it will take way better photos than u holding it, with the presence of low noise. I don't recommend taking it to a swimming pool, I have tried it before but only a few times. Even with the IP68 rating, problems may occur, because it is just a rating regarding how well the smartphone is sealed, but not all of the packages is 100% the same, some may have defects or poorly sealed, u never know, that is why u shouldn't do it. Performance is excellent in most games for me, car games and FPS games usually fall between 30fps-40fps, but I don't recommend SNAPDRAGON 820/SNAPDRAGON 821 smartphones for some heavy demand game like PUBG Mobile, because it is falling behind in these kind of games, and from the reference of scoring 3600 average in GeekBench 4. Battery life on this thing have improved a lot since my experience on ANDROID 6.0.1, mainly because I have updated to ANDROID 8.0.0, 6 hours of moderate use, able to last u from 7am-7pm moat of the time
Yasser, 26 Apr 2018YesIs it good for shooting at night and taking it to the swimming pool? Is the performance and the battery good? Thank you
