Guest, 30 May 2016They are selling the brand name not the product itselfXA is more Aesthetics than power the screen has almost no bezels
Rs12500/- is exact price which can be paid for Dual sim version. Moto g3 is like this selling for Rs9999/-,more rupee are added for colour,octa core and xperia launcher,rest are for its design that Chinese companies also make. Even if Sony Don't understand, he is out of mind and soon will be from business.

How the hell this thing can be such expensive with pretty bad specs in price range

Be aware that internet folks can use even official forums as marketing strategies. I don't think they're mostly paid people or anything, but as you said, people are brainwashed. One could willingly and happily become a "keyboard warrior" and fights for things they LOVE, which includes brands that brainwashed them.
This is why I rely heavily on offline scrutiny and offline friends I trusted when it comes to the really important things, such as purchases with real money, purchases with game money, and deciding on what dress should I wear, deciding what to eat for dinner...

But the stand by time was simply amazing...1% over night,I'm not kidding...tested for two consecutive nights.

My old Moto G running KitKat, it used to overheat like hell when using chrome. I can't blame the processor can I? Snapdragon 400 is a low power performance.
But after I upgraded to Lollipop 5.1 and did a software reset, the heating issues stopped.
So Helio X10 has no heat issues. It's just the software.

Helio X10 had no heat issues unlike the Crapdragon 810
Also heat will be produced in every processor in the world.
And heat can also be caused by other factors such as Ambient temperature, signal

Mediatek mt6732 and mt6735 are about faster than the similarly specced Snapdragon 410, but costs much less. Only issue is lack of custom ROM support.
Helio P10 competes with Snapdragon 617, but beats the crap out of it. 617 costs more, keep in mind
This phone costs like 299 euros and thats like 15000 or less in our country. That already is a very decent price for a phone that feels like a flagship and designed like a flagship. Performance is not an issue because its an xperia. Trolls please! Go buy your chinas
if it has no issues on heavy gaming ill buy it. but i had my fingers crossed on this one cause it uses mediatek processor
PhilA, 24 May 2016Most of the dates I've seen say 5 July, so delayed a bit...Yeah...and in the end I was not able to wait for it!...Maybe I'll buy it next year if it will turn out to be such a great phone!
