Anonymous, 17 Aug 2018In your experience, which of the XP and the XZ is better in terms of battery life and camera? ... moreIn my opinion, XPERIA XZ is the better one. I own both the XPERIA X PERFORMANCE and XPERIA XZ, alongside with the rest of my Z and X series flagships, so I know what it's going on, here are my thoughts. The XPERIA X PERFORMANCE and XPERIA XZ are both high-end flagships that have minor differences in them. Display, chipset, RAM, and camera are the same, the difference lies in the camera software and battery. While both sport a 13MP front camera and a 23MP rear camera, the XPERIA XZ does it better. Object tracking is slightly better on the XPERIA XZ; it is much more responsive. And the rest of the camera is basically the same thing for both, almost no difference what so ever. Another reason why XPERIA XZ is better is because of 4K recording, the XPERIA X PERFORMANCE doesn't have it. Weird isn't it? Because it's one of the most important thing to have on a high-end flagship, and yet Sony removed it at that point of time. Battery life is better on the XPERIA XZ, but not by much, just a few mins longer, obviously. For thermal management it's about the same thing, but I feel like XPERIA X PERFORMANCE is slightly better in the thermals, it stays a little longer than the XPERIA XZ before starting to throttle. But as I said, just the XPERIA XZ

Would also like to know which lasts better in terms of playing graphic internsive games like PUBG and other titles like Mobile Legends and such.
VPC007, 28 May 2018Not at all . Only @ 60FPS FHDit can do slow motion video via camera app named timeshift, just swipe to the right inside camera and look for timeshift, not the super slow motion you can get on new models but gets the job done

Mr.Wantstobuyaphone, 17 May 2018Does this phone record slow motion videos ?Not at all . Only @ 60FPS FHD
Technology Monster, 09 May 2018BTW which android version do you run your XZ on? I am asking because I heard that some people ... moreI have already updated my current daily driver XPERIA XZ to ANDROID OREO for a few months already, with March Security Patch, whereas my other X series high-end flagships are running on ANDROID OREO too but some are on April Security Patch and some just got updated to May Security Patch recently, even the XPERIA XZ international version I bought from Amazon, which is the website I bought the Z and X series high-end flagships from. For me, I don't have any issues with ANDROID OREO on these smartphones, they all are working fine, no WiFi dropping which a lot have been discussing/complaining about, no lag etc. But, I cannot tell u if that is a guarantee on every smartphone other people have bought. Just like the previous sentence, some have WiFi dropping issues, touchscreen issues, overheating way more than it is expected to perform, just pray to yourself that, the one u bought doesn't have any issues on the hardware or software (I consider myself lucky because every of my smartphone I bought doesn't come with issues). Okay, u might be wondering "Wait, so u have 2 XPERIA XZ?" Yes, I have 2, one bought from Amazon which is where I buy the rest of the smartphones in my collection, and another one which I am using it right now to type and it is my current daily driver still is bought from my carrier. I bought it from my carrier because it is a total giveaway that time because I only have to pay for monthly bills which is very cheap without paying a single cent on the smartphone itself, whereas some u have to pay $100 or more for other smartphones and pay the same amount for monthly bills. The good thing about it is the price of course like what I said, but the bad thing is that the software updates are slower than the Z and X series smartphones I bought from Amazon, which are international variants. Expected, since for carriers software updates have to go through them first to see if they can allow it to be commenced on that model, which takes like weeks or even months, that is why my current one is receiving software updates slower by 2. And also, if u are buying Sony smartphones which I guarantee u are right now lol, subscribe to XPERIA HOME BETA in Google+, to keep your home launcher updated as possible, it can be even newer than the preinstalled version of the launcher example my XPERIA XZ2 which is the most recent Sony smartphone I bought, but is the one that turns me away the most because of the design. I'm really surprised that u are a 10 year old, because u sound mature and I thought I am the only one here who have a great interest in technology at a young age with rich information, but it seems like there are some like u who learn it a year earlier (Yes, I starting learning technology since I was 11, now I already am a tech junkie at the age of 15). I guess u could consider yourself tech enthusiast or tech junkie too? But the title "Tech Enthusiast" suits u more if u are the type that can live without technology, tech junkies are people who knows a lot about tech, which I learned most of it already (More knowledgeable in computer tech as compared to smartphone tech, but I am more involved in smartphone tech like what I am doing now in this smartphone website), but I just can't live without it, because I love tech xD. Actually, I recommend u to rename this account into Hayk, it is just more recognizable, because there are some people who name themselves with the word "Tech" in front of it that makes me confused on which one I am familiar with. So this way, if u left this page for a long time and somehow someday u appeared in the comments page of other articles, I am able to recognize u easier next time. Oh yeah, sorry if I didn't introduce myself, my name is Alvin. Most of my online "friends" (I quoted because there isn't any friend request system, but I still consider them as an online friend) call me xXENDER FREAKXx, or Ender, as expected for my username, but I prefer them calling me Alvin, even though I'm fine with the other names they called me. Nice to meet u Hayk, I hope u can consider me as your friend too xD. Oh god, that is one long paragraph of words lol
xXENDER FREAKXx, 08 May 2018I will definitely prefer XPERIA XZ over the XPERIA X PERFORMANCE most of the time, even though... moreBTW which android version do you run your XZ on? I am asking because I heard that some people say the XZ goes crazy when you update it o android OREO. Is that right?Anyway do you know I am an 10 year old and I am really interested in IT and I know a lot about it? Me and Hayk Avetisyan are the same people, but Hayk Avetisyan is my real full name and Technology Monster is just my nickname in GSMArena.com and Roblox.com(I haven't played any game in roblox yet)
xXENDER FREAKXx, 08 May 2018I will definitely prefer XPERIA XZ over the XPERIA X PERFORMANCE most of the time, even though... moreThanks a lot for your help! I heard you had an Sony Xperia phone collocetion right? Then good luck for you to get more phones for your collection! Once again, thank you!
Technology Monster, 08 May 2018The last question. Which one do you like better? Please, XZ!!!!!I will definitely prefer XPERIA XZ over the XPERIA X PERFORMANCE most of the time, even though it heats up more than the XPERIA X PERFORMANCE after a few minutes of playing games with intensive graphics. Because, there are some key points of it that is better than the XPERIA X PERFORMANCE, even others would say that. The camera is one of them. Packed with identical hardware, the XPERIA XZ have 4K video recording, whereas the latter does not, along the the bigger 2900mAh battery, a 200mAh bump from the XPERIA X PERFORMANCE. Lastly the price of both of these probably is cheap enough for u, if it is cheap u might as well get the better one am I right? So yeah, I really do prefer the XPERIA XZ
Technology Monster, 07 May 2018Plus XZ was less heavy and thinner. BTW I need a phone which is not more that 300EUR on gsmare... moreFor your budget, it is a little to much. 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
Anonymous, 07 May 2018That is only your opinion. From your few years involved with mobile phones. Its quits comical ... moreWow, wasn't expecting someone to read my past comment, but, so what if it is my opinion? Have u ever wondered about the worst case scenario? 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
