No. They dont do optimisation at all.
You know everyphone has different configuration of hardware. The software for X and XP is almost identical, even camera app is the same(should not). Lucky for X that software suit it better, for X perf.. the software doesnt suit it.
Thats why Xperia X is faster than stronger brother X perf.
X opens camera 2-3 seconds faster than XP.
This is a great device, using this phone from last 1 week and am totally satisfied by performance of this device. Everything runs smooth and both of the cameras take clear pictures and video recording is also good. Sometimes in low light areas, camera takes average pictures and about battery backup, it is good and more than enough. If you are light user then it can last for a day easily and if you are. Heavy user it last a half day. At last i just wanna say that this is a great device from sony, it is a real beast. But you should consider daily life performance, don't look at those benchmark performance, in real world this is a beast, i will advise everyone this mobile phone who wants to buy a high end phone. Thanks everyone.
sony xperia x performance get android 7.0 nougat preview baby!!!!

Why does Sony have its trusted fans? Because of user experience exactly.
What does user experience consist of? Software quality and optimisation.
Sony is best at it.
Because for ex every single sonys native app is twice as big as any other vendors standard app
Everyone.can look it up....
Any Other vendors standard app is about max 7 mb .apk, whilst sonys is 15 mb .apk, including anything sonys from camera app, gallery app, music app, movies app, etc...
So yes, Sony has one of biggest UI bundle out there, but there is good reasons for that, and its not bloatware as in other vendors, its software enhancements....for better user experience.
So, if Xperia boots up slower, its because of the amount of all the software enhancement it needs to load up.
If an app opens up a 0.6 s slower its because its 15mb and not 7 mb heavy app.
And those apps are so much user friendly and better looking.
Why do exynos phones load heavy apps faster?
Because of better multicore performance, but all the rest performances go in favour of snapdragon.
But also exynos phones have twice the lousier graphic performance. Its users will to choose between the two.
Why does Xperia camera app cause heat up?
Because of amount of postprocessing in video, compensating lack of mechanical OIS by software SoC draining steadyshot, and of course 23 mpx sensor photo postprocessing is quite heavy SoC drainer, but you get so much better video stabilisation and photos for it...
Actually, if people would put their mind to it what amount of software sonys UI is running under the skin while active, theyd be quite impressed by the speed of its UI.
And why it is more xpensive than chinese...
Losing users on their behalf is only a pricepoint factor, but most definitely not a quality factor.
Avan Dr, 12 Aug 2016Ahh.. when gsma did benchmark, and XP only got 116K while S7 get 132 both E and SD, you slsman... moreYes. Real life performance is more important. What this mean dude? This mean that Sony is much better. And if it is a bit slower it will boost performance after some updates. Samsung will lag after some months.
Sony's pricing of their phones is ridiculous. They don't even spend a lot in marketing yet they price it so high. The quality of their phone is good just like the OnePlus phones but the only difference is their price. OnePlus is now more popular than Sony Xperia because of their competitive price and high quality phones.

I found someone here said XP speed is only on par with S6. And i searched in on YouTube and find it even slower than s6 in all speed test. It just confirm what oragsm said. It doesnt change anything.
Now when S6 is faster(well optimised?) you said XP antutu benchmark score 138K. Please note, I ALSO APPROVE IT. Even if i found all test always result about 116K. It doesnt change anything.
So, i approve everything you said. Now, what do you want? Benchmark is more important or not? Please be consistent.
I have a question regarding LDAC.
Have any of you, who owns an Xperia X Performance, been able to test the sound quality capabilities of the codec using lossless audio, compressed or uncompressed?
AnonD-481725, 11 Aug 2016Absolutely wrong, a speed test which is starts with booting up is wrong, some devices heat up ... moreErm, what antutu scores?!

Something s7(either version) can only dream of....
And yes, he is obsessed with multicore bench score so much, he is blind to all other bench results.
A typical hater, glues to only specific factors that suits him, neglecting all other and overall....
Avan Dr, 11 Aug 2016If i am not mistaken its slightly better than XP. I was impatient. Btw bad video bad test. ... moreslowest in benchmarks ! ? Xperia X Performance manged double the frame rates of S7 here on gsmarena benchmark tests , check the reviews and stop trolling your nonsense .
Avan Dr, 11 Aug 2016If i am not mistaken its slightly better than XP. I was impatient. Btw bad video bad test. ... moreAbsolutely wrong, a speed test which is starts with booting up is wrong, some devices heat up more than others when booting up, but the funny thing is that you ignored the hanging of s7 edge when he tried to see its rank, and you didn't say anything about the lags in game play video comparison, those are real issues, all that you are spotting on is that the s7 has slightly better score in antutu benchmark and it is slightly faster in loading applications while these are not issues and are not noticeable in real life, if you are really interested in this, why you don't just go for iphones???
AnonD-481725, 10 Aug 2016I couldn't see the rank of the s7 edge :(

Mine is better, start from booting and Benchmark it. Its a fair test. XP is the slowest and lowest in Benchmark.
