DenisXD, 18 Aug 2016What's wrong with s7? It is a true flagship, instead of x performance playing flagship role. I... moreThe S7 is a great phone DenisXD, but it's also somewhat overrated. It is NOT a better phone overall than the XP. Unless you think having Qi-Wireless charging is some big deal. Maybe if this was 2013, not in 2016 though, esp when it can't charge as fast as QC 3.0 can.
Sony Mobile may NOT be perfect, but the XP definitely IS a flagship phone. Just b/c it doesn't have 4 GBs of RAM don't think it's not faster than the S7, cuz sorry, IT IS. I've already mentioned and given an example of this in very recent posts. No 2K screen? At 5", 2K is really no big deal. I'd rather have the extra battery life. The screen STILL looks great!
The XP can get brighter than the S7 can too, which is helpful under heavy sunlight. I can actually make out the screen under those conditions where with my S7 I had to look for shade to see what was on the screen. The speaker is beyond ridiculous on the S7........I mean even the S6's was better. The Settings menu has improved since the S5 I had a couple years ago (for like 4 days lol), but it's still not the easiest to coast through. With the HTC & Sony phones, everything is simple & easy to find quickly.
The Z5 was great in some ways, but the XP has a BETTER camera than can also take wider shots, and it's more color accurate and brighter than the Z5. It also has Hybrid Autofocus for sharper pics. The 4K screen was no big whoop cuz it was only 4K if u viewed 4K content. And I don't care for phablets at all, so I'm glad Sony didn't go that route with the XP.

The only thing you're promoting is yawns.
No it's not pointless, if you actually have a valid point. Like even though I think the XP is the best new phone around, I would admit 1) Although the battery life is very good (esp with Stamina Mode enabled), it still isn't AS good as the Z3's was 2) Not a huge fan of Sony putting the notification light WITHIN the the top stereo front-facing speaker when it should've been kept separate for easier viewing from the side (I have to basically look directly at it to even see it) 3) I'm REALLY tired of ppl still saying Samsung has the better camera. That is total horsesh*t! All 3 phones (HTC 10, Sony XP, Samsung S7) got an 88 on DxoMark, but the reality is I've owned all 3 phones and tested their cameras using OPTIMAL (though Automatic) settings, and they are NOT equal. No way. The 10's camera doesn't offer the same detail as the XP's and S7's, and the S7's is less color accurate and tends to be somewhat overly saturated, giving an artificial look. 4) The biggest BS statement of all is that the S7 is faster than the XP (which MANY reviewers seem to assume is true b/c of the specs) because it has an extra GB of RAM, but I know for a fact that isn't true. My parents' Xperia Z1s (released Jan 2014) I've seen it load things (not necessarily download, but load) up quicker than the S7, and it only has 2 GBs of RAM, 1 less than the XP.
Yeah but they're also not BASH forums either.

The x performance is almost xperia x but much powerful + brushed metal + waterproof.

It is a true flagship, instead of x performance playing flagship role. If you were talking about z5 then yeah, it's a flagship like s7. But x performance is not mate, deal with it. Sony didn't even try.

On 2nd note I don't think I'm the only one considering xp a midranger, it doesn't have a good optimisation to record even fhd video, the camera shuts down after a few minutes. That's the reason Sony skipped the 4k recording entirely.
2nd it doesn't have fm radio when the "outdated" z5 has. I don't get it lex.. seriously it's like fans all over get excited just because they see something new, it doesn't matter if it doesn't have things previous phones had, it's brand new! Praise it like you are a sheep in a herd!
I was in the new sony phone post and said that bezels are huge in comparison to z5, which they are. And fans attacked to me. You know I'm a big Sony fan lex, we argued a few times here and there but when it comes to x performance? I'm on your side, it's a poorly optimised costly phone playing flagship among true flagships.

Seriously we had to ask about your ages before taking your thoughts seriously, anyway way have fun with your smartphones and we are already, good luck.
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2016Buy LG? Lol. We - Sony fans never buy any other crap including Samsung and iPhone.Your should Dude. Its always good to experience something new. If you come from Sony, i dont recommend you HTC, you'll get not so different experience.
I recommend you LG phones, it has attractive UI, the best i ever tried. It looks like they think about everything. There are many handy software tricks.From waking up the screen, texting, inserting audio Jack, till turning off the screen, everything is fun. Now even when screen is off, its already has something for you.
And with Ir blaster you'll be the master everywhere. Its also fun we can snail in our neighbour garden, snoop them from their window, and turn off the TV when they are watching it.
I also recommend you Oppo phones, it also has a fun UI.
Avan Dr, 18 Aug 2016The reviewer will weigh the pros and cons of a number of devices and give you their 'opinion'.... moreThe xperia xp is excellent, no but the best phone in the world, wonderful design, excellent performance, camera no need to talk about it, it is sony buy one and you will be happy :D.

I'm sure the people there will LOVE that. But see those ppl there prob won't care b/c they'll believe what they want to believe. I believe in fact. I don't see the point in putting down a phone in a forum made for that phone, but apparently you do. Nobody here seems to care about your bash talk, but hey, if you wanna keep at it, then go ahead. Just don't be surprised if no one here wants to listen to what you have to say. I've owned both phones, and the HTC 10 too, so I know what's what.

Go off what ever you like, buy whatever you like, who cares. But this is not a pro Sony echo chamber, its a discussion board meant for different opinions.
Go elsewhere if all you want to hear is what you like to hear.

And salsman will convince anyone to buy their product.How? Its easier if they have best selling product they only need to say their product is the best.
For unpopular or low selling product slsman will also needs to put down the direct competitor, biggest competitor is the biggest enemy. For cheap product they only need to say, their product maybe not better but the same or very close in quality yet much cheaper.
I hope everyone here can differentiate between review, fanboy statement, and product promotion.
Lex79, 17 Aug 2016Ah another 'troll' accusation, how very boring. You've been learning all the wrong lessons ... moreThe only thing boring is watching guys come on the XP thread just to trash the XP phone. I go off my own experiences over any review, and so I have the right to agree with people like Team and Tann because at least they aren't full of sh*t. Nobody hear cares about your negative BS opinions except for other trolls.
AnonD-481725, 17 Aug 2016Then you should try the others they are much better :).Again no. See this is the problem with you fanboys.
Let me put it to you simply, I am currently using an LG G5, but here's two things you'll never see me post about that device:
1. Its the best smartphone in the world ever (simply because it's the one I own, or because I happen to 'love' the manufacturer...I don't by the way, I care as much about companies as they care about me)
2. You should buy the G5, because then I know you'll say it's the best ever as well.
I can't speak for what other people will think, neither can you. I could buy the XP tomorrow if I wanted and I may hate it, just because you like it doesn't mean the next guy will, get over yourself!
With regard the best smartphone, well 'best' is a concept in this case, one based on opinion more than any other factor. This is the main difference between fanboy rantings and review conclusions. The reviewer will weigh the pros and cons of a number of devices and give you their 'opinion' on which is best. A fanboy will simply say it's the best no matter what.
Fanboys, pests the lot of you!
