Anonymous, 18 Jun 2016You got this phone already?
How's the battery life?
Is it amazing?
Yeah I did. lol See my review (scroll down a bit). Too early to tell for sure on battery life, but I'm SURE it will be great, esp with 360 Hibernation Master app (again, see my review). lol
Bought it from US Amazon site. Seller is NGP.
LisaStepUSA, 18 Jun 2016Omgomg! I'm so excited for this phone!! I've been watching all the vids and everyone using it ... more
Yeah lol..........it's pretty f'ing amazing. lol How long you gotta wait?
Yes the pink one looks really nice too!
I wrote a review already on XDA which you can read below. Feel free to comment here or there about it. (All are welcome to read and comment!)
So far, this phone is pretty awesome! For only a 3GB phone, it puts my now about to be sold 4GB S7 to SHAME in terms of speed. lol I mean there is NO lag AT ALL. Even when I shut it down, it shuts off so fast you can barely tell it's done! Like 2-3 seconds. Fingerprint sensor is super quick, no lag. Phone is gorgeous.......LOVE the brushed aluminum backside with the hairline finish. Very classy.
Had a minor hiccup after downloading the APN settings (nice to have that feature vs. doing it manually). After I rebooted it didn't seem to work for making calls. So I realized early on the stock Contacts app on the phone is kinda shi**y & unstable lol, so I disabled it, and after a few tries, I found this one called Contacts + (see Play Store), and it seems to work perfectly! So that's resolved. Apparently, the STOCK texting app is even better than the Google Messenger one I've used for a while now. Actually has a read Delivery report for SMS messages and a Read report for MMS messages (Google Messenger doesn't have the second one), and looks JUST LIKE GM too. So I'll be keeping that one.
The int'l version from NGP (see US Amazon) comes with a QNovo QC 2.0 (UCH10) int'l charger and adapter, NOT the UCH12 QC 3.0 one that apparently this phone is capable of handling. The adapter is kinda crappy and I let NGP know about it. The prongs on the adapter are a bit too thin, so although it slides into the wall outlet fine, it seems a bit loose and just a small tug will pull it out of place or out completely. Can you say fire hazard?! lol I think I'm gonna prob just chuck it and I've already bought a QC 3.0 charger for a great price and it's super highly rated too.
There are a few things though that need to be addressed (ANY input or help would be greatly appreciated!):
1) When the phone is on a call, instead of going to 4G (since no VoLTE, which I'm not happy about and we'll discuss in a second lol), it goes to 3G. Why is this happening?? I know it's the int'l version and all, but is there a way to alter it is so that it STAYS in 4G?? Any "flashware" that doesn't require unlocking the bootloader or rooting?? My parents have the Xperia Z1s which doesn't have VoLTE but was bought through T-Mobile, and it stays in 4G during calls, so wtf? lol
2) Is there any flashware to put VoLTE on this phone? I know some foreign versions of the XP have VoLTE, but apparently the int'l version does not. At least with VoLTE I'd have LTE during the call.
3) I'd downloaded the phone settings automatically using an option in Settings (Settings-->More-->Internet settings, then make sure to reboot after you're done), so NO NEED to do it manually. That went well. Phone calls and texts are coming through fine now. I notice though that when in LTE, it doesn't say 4G LTE, just LTE. Is that normal? Does that mean 4G LTE??? lol
Despite these issues, I'm EXTREMELY happy with this phone!! I HIGHLY recommend it, and this clear case is pretty nice too (though I'd prefer a Spigen or Rearth one, but they were dummies and didn't make one for the XP).

Alien , 17 Jun 2016Look what I have found on the net lol. The antutu benchmark score of the X Performance: 120.00... moreantutu is most unrelible benchmark . I wouldn't care if it scores 200 or 50 thousands ... here is the best example how good X Performance is http://prntscr.com/bhq8vs (from gsmarena review )
Some says Sony bad some says Samsung better iPhone best...
It has no relation with at all... I'm Sony lover since Sony Ericsson t610 until z3compact... Unfortunately Sony behave as we are Japanese we are the best and forgotten that... a group in university can built a phone better than them with financial support...
Sony should listen to the customer and forget about manufacturing just to follow up...
Ford and Renault had have worst sales in alot of countries.. But they listin to consumers and develop them product as well as Samsung..
All try to compete with iPhone... Because ios stable and all of u forget that... IPhone rent you a phone and keep leading you. They never let you lead ur phone.. You are only temporary user until they force you to buy new one..
Just look for ur needs and go for it..
Need a camera phone.. Lately Samsung improve them cameras in phone.. Need big perfect phone go for one plus 3
Need stable none issue phone.. IPhone..
Or don't install lot of apps to ur Android phones if u have small internal memory..
Good luck all of u...
Newly I swiped to be S7 user
Hey... Sorry.. Can u read ur comment once again... Galaxy is Samsung.. Samsung is galaxy.. Where you learn basics of discussions...
I don't understand why this phone is 8.7 mm thick. It's too thick by modern standards. Device has just been released by already looks and feels outdated. Average device at premium price. I'd like to hear Sony representative's opinion on why they think customers should pay price Sony is asking for Xperia X and X Performance. What makes them feel that these devices really worth asked price? But I'm sure we will never hear anything from Sony.

Letting it charge now. But wow....... can't wait to use it! Bought it from here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FMABWWM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And clear case coming later today: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DXUUC0Q/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It's super fast though! I turned it off to charge it, and I swear it shut down in like 2 seconds. lol
Only minor thing was you get an int'l quick charger with it which comes with an adapter. The adapter works with the charger, but the prongs are really thin so fits into wall outlet a bit loosely. This MAY be an excuse for me to get a Quick Charge 3.0 charger (since the int'l one at least is compatible, though they didn't advertise that for some reason)? lol
Ok just bought one..........cheap but HIGHLY rated. Just the way I like 'em lol................
Look what I have found on the net lol. The antutu benchmark score of the X Performance: 120.000!
Though I'm not sure it's real..
