Well, seems Sonys UI is indeed a true AI learner.... first week didnt get over 6 hr SoT that easily, now.... 7 hr SoT without a sweat on same usage pattern.
I WILL BE SHORT... Is it good or bad??? I like that is has same chipset as s7/s7 edge but it costs 395 euros atm at nearby store... So go for it or not??

Only performance mode is worth it tho, as other two reduce cpu/gpu performance and UI gets slower which is irritating as hell...
Kam, 26 Mar 2017is NOUGAT good enough now bro???? im not a tech literate that if ever NOUGAT will suck on my X... moreIts superb from my view yes... never had marshmallow to compare tho.
As soon as I got it, updated it to all it had (8 freakin updates including nougat one), then made a factory reset and reinstalled all the software anew which is obligatory to avoid bugs.
Its working like a charm....
But is it worth it?
I dont know, I can only compare to feats and revs on the net based on marshmallow.
Camera got shutter control now, which is good as it allows to make really great lowlight shots (keep EV level lower, shutter also... amazing results with 20mpx also at low light).
Also on half brightness and X reality got approxim 10hr videoplay time(10% per hr drain) on Nougat, whereas rev here calculated 8:14, which is more than 20% increase...
Same goes for browsing.
I dont know about volume increase, but the thing is really loud on Nougat.
There is just one bug tho, but could be to my process kill app settings, autobrightness on stamina sometimes goes beserk when battery below 15%, but I keep it on half without auto(around 250-270nits), its good enough even for bright sunlight.

i agree with
i have this phone and its working super . upgrade to nougat no heating issues at all . no hanging i am a heavy user and its last for 8 hours .
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2017Can anyone tell me how long the battery lasts on one charge? Screen on time?On half brightness with my setting as below, over 6hr SoT.
Here ya go:

It would come about 0.3% drop per hour in standby
Anonymus, 25 Mar 2017You have come To The Right Place . X Performance is a Performer among all others All The Heat... moreA5 and A7 hardly better options, those are really bad phones, and its not even sony fan in me talking.....no hires sound, no stereo speakers, no camera stabilisation at all on worse set of cameras, lousy SoC with atrocity bad graphic performance.... only thing good about those is battery maH, but not exactly in daily usage either
Better to go for Xperia X for the price of A5 then, it is not waterproof but is splashproof even tho not marketed as such.
Gino76, 24 Mar 2017I am looking to replace my old Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo with an Xperia phone. With a limited budg... moreI can tell you about my X Perform only. Dont own others.
If you are bothered by grain in pictures, keep to Samsung, tho on 8mpx mode there will be no grain in Xperias, but also less detail like on Samsung. I prefer more detail grain in 23mpx is unnoticable unless you go full 200 zoom. X Perform takes amazing pictures, really the detail, color and dynamic range in daylight is unmatched. Lowlight with enough artific light (indoors, sunsets) is great, tho a bit less detail preserved just as any other phone. In no light scenario and dusk scenarios it struggles (tho dont know a mobile camera that doesnt) and come out grainy, but still usable shots 1:1.
60 fps fhd video is superb and stable indeed with steadyshot, I keep IAM off because it causes some frame distortion on pan. Tested it for 5 min, heats up a bit but no noticable heatup.
Speakers are great and really loud, tho metal back vibrates a lot on max volume and distortes the sound a bit, so I keep it somewhat lower to avoid that. Really dont see why people ask for more loudness from a phone.
Also you have mono option in Nougat now and can gain about 5db more with it.
Headphone sound is amazingly good with dsee hx on, even on most simple headphones.
Phone is really fast, fp scanner even too fast for my taste, I dont use it.
There is ocassional heavy app reload, tho I am really not bothered by it as I dont consider keeping app in cache multitasking good for batterylife, I use Greenify to kill apps in background also. Loads apps really fast.
On batterylife: as I said perviously, keeping my screen on half brightness without autoadjust (bright enough for use even in sunlight), Stamina mode for better performance mode, Xperia app cleaner off( it eats too much battery in background) and background data/syncing saving mode... I get 6 to 8 hr SoT, about 10 hr videotime and about same browsing endurance. 6 if I play War of Gods for 1/2 hr(indeed great gaming with sd820 and fornt facing stereo) , make a 30 min talk and listen to 1 hr music daily, 7-8 hr if I only browse through the day. So its about the same as my previous Z1c with which I was well satisfied to get me through the day of my own heavy usage scenario....
1-2% drop per hour in standby.
If one would use the phone as here in arenas scenario, like 1hr of brows, 1hr of video and 1 hr of talking per day... two days endurance on single charge easily.
I am indeed satisfied with my Performance I got for 420+VAT, as it is an upgrade over my Z1c in every way, except battery endurance which is about the same.
There, hope this helps a bit in deciding.

X Performance is a Performer among all others All The Heaters . Best Camera Performance in Low light is a main Feature for This Phone . No Heating at all . But If U are coming as a samsung User U might Think twice about your decision . Because for This Budget samsungs A5 2017 or A7 2017 Out permorms all of your aspects .
I am looking to replace my old Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo with an Xperia phone. With a limited budget my choices are limited to Z3+, Z5 & X Performance (due to all being waterproof):
In all of their current Android Nougat 7.0 update which would you guys recommend right now in terms of battery life (& standby), camera speed/performance/quality (more warmer photos, lower noise in zoom & better low-light), memory management (apps not having to reload) , heating issues and speakers quality?
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2017Don't get pixel this phone sucksToo late. Already have it.
This phone is superb indeed!
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2017Don't get pixel this phone suckseh??? u must be one of the lucky few.. XD I have mine and got no issues with signal or connectivity whatsoever.... Cheers!!
Nmn, 16 Mar 2017Hi,
Can some long time user Answer my below queries please:
1) Does this phone has heating i... more1. No extra heating up at all.
2. Batterylife for me 6 to 8 hr SoT, easily lasts whole day, getti g about 10hr videotime(X reality on). See above my reply on the subject.
3. No FM radio.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2017Please inform me about the battery life performance of thedeviceSo preliminar estimate of battery life:
With my usage pattern which is screen on autobrightness set to 40%, background data limited, and xperias app cleaner off(it really eats a lot in the background), installed greenify and process killer just in case, II get 6 to 7 hr screen ontime with about 1hr videoplay, 1 hr playing with camera, and 4 hr web surfing in all...
But usually I dont surf that much. So estimate is 6-8 hr SoT. Which is enough for heavier use 24 hr. If used by this here merits you can easily get 2 day juice out of it indeed.
I really am satisfied by batterylife as it is even better than my z1c.
Will post screenshots to prove my estimate.
