Instead of making all these "lightweight" ads for their Xperia phones, I wish Sony would instead "get with it" and start putting out better ones ON TV (not JUST YouTube and the Sony Mobile site!), like this new one below. I think people would really take to ads like this one, but of course, they should start making new ones too with big actors like George Clooney, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, etc. And don't make them corny like that new LG G5 one with Jason Statham. Make them witty & fun, humorous & catchy, etc.
If I WAS running things at Sony, people would be like Sam-who? i-What?! lol
gaaron, 28 Apr 2016Dang! Bro nice nice! Good for you bro what a good news for every body...specially you bro your... more
Yeah we both are! lol All the other phones out there are too big (LG G5, HTC 10), WAY too big (LG V10, Nexus 6P), have a crappy speaker + dumb physical button (S7), or have great speakers but not stereo-front facing (HTC 10, plus they added physical home button). If I got any of those other phones I'd have to pretend I really loved the phone and wasn't in some way annoyed by it. lol
I think it will perform VERY fast. The S7 might have the extra 1GB of RAM, but like I said, when compared to my parents' Xperia Z1s (2014), it downloads faster but doing stuff ON the phone is not as fast believe it or not. Maybe it's Samsung's crappy TouchWiz UI or whatever, but the X Performance I think will be faster at least for doing stuff on the phone.
We just have to wait and see what happens. But this was a bit of good news. I'll feel better though when the international version says "Registration" though. lol So far it doesn't, yet.

gaaron, 28 Apr 2016Lol bro your funny and you put smile in my face bro your going to sell your S7 to have x perf... morehey gaaron (and all),
Slight update.......... I noticed that on the U.S. Sony Mobile product page for the X Performance that the former "Pre-Registration" button has now changed to "Registration"! So hopefully that means it's coming out in May or else June and not later. (See link below for all 3 X phones)
Also, despite earlier reports that the XA is not coming to the U.S., I noticed that the XA has not only been added to the list, it too has a "Registration" button to click on as well. The only one that (oddly) doesn't yet is the X.
My hope/guess is that when the X Performance becomes available to buy in the U.S. (via Amazon for me), then so will the int'l version as well. THAT'S the one to buy as it will be CHEAPER than the U.S. version I'm sure and will have an active/working fingerprint scanner. The U.S. version will not have a working scanner, cost more, but will come with a 1-year warranty. But I don't care about the warranty anyway b/c I've confirmed that my T-Mobile insurance will COVER an unlocked phone like this one even though I didn't buy it through T-Mobile. I just have to register it on my account when I get it.
Hopefully global Sony Mobile site will show registration button soon.

I DO get notifications on here, I just meant I don't get e-mail notifs. Just post here and I'll keep checking the upper right corner.
Also, that link I sent you...........note the "us" in the link. That's for U.S.
And yes, the X Performance WILL work here in the U.S. as long as you have T-Mobile (my carrier) or AT&T. This site PROVES that to be true: http://willmyphonework.net/

For some reason gsmarena wouldn't post my complete posting. So here it is. Hope this works.
Although, I will be buying the international version not the U.S. version on Amazon because the U.S. one won't have a working fingerprint scanner. But my guess is they won't have the int'l version available on Amazon here until the U.S. version is? I dunno. This s*it is confusing and frustrating.
But yeah, gsmarena is saying EXPECTED release date is May 2016. I e-mailed them too asking for proof or a reason for why they think it's May. I hope I hear back soon.
Yeah thanks! Though I don't get notifications for replies on here. I just saw your reply now because I manually checked. If you are on XDA then just message me there I guess.
Haha yeah gaaron......... but it's the truth. Samsung phones and I just don't like each other very much. lol I had the S5 2 years ago for like 4 days and I couldn't stand it! So I switched it for the HTC One M8...... my SECOND most favorite phone! A close second...........but then the Z3 became available. lol I wanted the Z2 but couldn't get it at the time cuz my carrier (T-Mobile) didn't carry it. But they did Z3. Now no carriers here in the U.S. carry it so I have to buy it unlocked. Oh well.
So I had the Z3 for a year and a half and LOVED it but wanted to give Samsung a second chance plus they said no more Z so I thought they were done with flagship phones (but now I see they're not with X Perf). So got S7 Edge but was too big (F phablet phones lol) so now got regular S7. With all the promos Samsung had going on like free Netflix for a year I said F it. Great phone overall, but man not a perfect phone..........1) Screen brightness is f'ing awful........ under heavy sunlight, forget it. Good luck seeing the screen. 2) The audio quality on this phone is a f'ing joke. The SINGLE speaker is garbage. Drum sounds render like someone's shooting a laser gun. lol Hook up an amp/DAC to it via Micro-USB to listen to music? POS (piece of sh*t) skips CONSTANTLY while I'm listening to music. YouTube videos with that set up? It gets like 10 times worse! 3) I HATE physical home buttons!!! Had an app that would make it so button worked like a virtual button, but app only works like 60-70% of the time. 4) Even though it downloads faster than my parents' Xperia Z1s (2014), I swear, when I'm jumping around from app to app or doing different things on homescreen, my parents' Z1s actually seems to run FASTER than the S7! WTF?!
F Samsung.............yeah I am ready to have Sony back. lol

They most definitely will be. Sony Mobile even created a special website for it!

A ... moreOh Man..., are you one immature bloke.
First: it was said by Sony mobile Taiwaneese branch CEO, not Sony Mobile HQ CEO
Second: the guy refuted the X Premium device news item as fake, not a possible device with HDR screen in the works as fake
Third: original source was named as Sony insider...
So the news item was a rumor, and that info still remains a rumor...
4K screen of z5 was also at first a rumor, but in the end it saw the light of day..
Hdr screen will probably see the light of day too on a september flag device, if rumor is true...

Tann Hauser, 23 Apr 2016Yeah, they all will be outdated by X Premium with that HDR screen ;-) Copy and pasted from: http://phandroid.com/2016/04/26/sony-debunks-xperia-x-premium/?v=1
A device with an HDR display would be the first of itÂ’s kind on a mobile device. With the rumors stating the device would have up to 1000 nits of brightness, making it the brightest smartphone on the market today. This would definitely be a hot commodityÂ… if it were true.
Unfortunately, itÂ’s time to give up those hopes and dreams. Sony Taiwan reached out to the source of the rumors and stated that there is no Sony Xperia X Premium device in the works. Kind of a bummer, but hey, at least it wasnÂ’t released, then features were held back due to a combination of the hardware and software.
Tann Hauser, 23 Apr 2016Yeah, they all will be outdated by X Premium with that HDR screen ;-) Yep. Outdated by a phone that was fake and does not exist.
Big boy, 27 Apr 2016No fm radio. Sony this is not acceptable.
Be innovative, creative dont go backward.It does have FM radio.
Arena really should update its info

Any idea where the "May" release date for U.S. came from on this page?! I mean, the source? Cuz I haven't seen anything anywhere else that says May for X Performance. Just June or maybe July. Man I REALLY hope this is true!! I have the S7 and I am COUNTING THE DAYS until I can finally sell it off and get the X Performance!
Lemme know. Thanks!
