XP has qnovo, and quickcharge 3.0 capability, meaning you can use either qc2.0 or qc3.0 with it...qnovo is related to battery, it doesnt depend upon the kind of charger.
US site offers qc 2.0 uhc10, so you should look elswhere for qc3.0 uhc 12, if you want one
Billygoat, 05 Jun 2016Can you link the the cite on which it says the x performance will have no fingerprint scanner ... moreHey Billygoat,
Well that would be the U.S. version of the X Performance which had those features taken out. The full specs for it can be found on the U.S. Sony Mobile website here: http://www.sonymobile.com/us/products/phones/xperia-x-performance/specifications/
The int'l/global version however appears to have everything: http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/products/phones/xperia-x-performance/specifications/
Neither the int'l version or the U.S. version will have VoLTE or HD Voice though. Without VoLTE, the XP won't be able to take FULL advantage of the Band 12/700 MHz spectrum it has during INDOOR phone calls. This spectrum is much better at penetrating through buildings and walls than the other spectrums are, but to use it, the phone must have VoLTE that's been certified by whichever carrier you're using. Now that I just found this out, I'm considering buying the HTC 10 instead. We'll see.

I just noticed something interesting......... on the Global/Int'l Sony Mobile site, the Qnovo Charger is listed as UCH12, and is listed as having Quick Charge 3.0 capability:
But on the U.S. Sony Mobile site, the same charger is listed as UCH10, but it only has QC 2.0 capability:
WTF?! lol So does this mean that the U.S. variant, which has already been stripped of both IP65/68 & an active fingerprint sensor, also was downgraded to ONLY QC 2.0 capability while the int'l XP has 3.0??!!
What are your thoughts people?

Yeah but again, if you look on that page you linked me, it says that Qnovo is the CHARGER, not the battery too:
Keep your battery healthy
Using groundbreaking Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology, we are able to constantly monitor and adjust charging currents to maximise your battery lifespan.
RockStar2005, 05 Jun 2016I took a second look. Only the charger is Qnovo, not the battery. http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/xperia/technologies/battery/

I thought the charger was QNovo. Is the battery used in the XP a QNovo too??Try contact to the official for futher information, if you really need it. I personally very appreciate Sony use the Qnovo battery it is very practical! The competitors will follow Sony use the Qnovo battery after that (but they will start trolling and bashing Sony at first).
Sony is leading!

I am very appreciate Sony use the Qnovo battery to ensure the battery lifespan, this is very important for a sealed battery phone. So, I want to tell those competitors posting here, Their Phones Without Qnovo Battery absolutely pathetic a weakness.
Perhaps, these competitors will follow Sony strengthen the battery by Qnovo battery. These competitors trolling and bashing Sony, but when they get the same features lately, they will praise for it, so whose is the stubborn fans?!
panda27, 04 Jun 2016I thought that it's made from glass, but it's from TPU? How about this one? http://www.sonymob... more
I don't think a case made out of glass would sell too well. lol TPU is soft and actually IMO looks nicer than those hard cases do, including the one you linked me. Plus my case is clear, even on the sides, which I prefer. I don't want the phone to covered up or hidden AT ALL. Also, the TPU cases are easier to get on & off than the hard ones are from my own experience.

panda27, 04 Jun 2016I also love the black and white one, feels more calm yet elegant imo.
Besides the body cove... moreYeah I agree. I'd probably only get the graphite black or else white/silver one. I decided to pre-order the graphite black one as I think I like it slightly more. My S7 is platinum gold, which looks a lot like silver under certain light, so I'm happy to go back to black again.
I don't think so. I never use a screen protector or anti-glare anything. Only thing I'd recommend getting is a CLEAR case like this one. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DCVGI90/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1A8RN6F641F1I&coliid=I3UVOD9979XZCC&psc=1 It's very well-designed to give you maximum protection, but still not hide the phone's sweet looks since it's clear.

Besides the body cover, should I put some anti-glare film on the screen and camera lens? Actually, is it a good idea for protecting the camera lens with a film like that? I never do that to my phones before

I see. Ok then yeah the XP is the phone for you. lol
Yeah to help differentiate the X series from the Z series, Sony has chosen not to put glass on the backside of the X series like they did with the Z. I welcome the change because I love how the XP (graphite black and white/silver colors only) has that brushed aluminum/hairline finish on the back. Looks great!
RockStar2005, 03 Jun 2016No problem panda. So are you gonna buy the X or XP? Or neither?XP, since it has better processor and waterproof. I once got iPhone 3G back then, and it's broken because of a birthday prank with water, hence my search for waterproof phones. I'm not too fond of glassback phones too, since I'm a clumsy one.
