Sony Xperia X, X Performance and XA: Sony at MWC 2016

 

As most others focus on phablets, Sony showed the 5" market a lot of love with the new Xperia X series. The Xperia X Performance is essentially a Z-phone in disguise. Better yet, not even the Z5 has a brushed metal back.

Sony Xperia X

 

The Sony Xperia X is an unlocked Android phone with good overall performance, but it's priced too high for what you get.

Solid performance. Good camera. Expandable storage. Most bloatware, including stock apps, can be uninstalled.

Relatively expensive. Average specs. Not waterproof.

Software and Conclusions The Xperia X comes running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow . Sony isn't necessarily the first manufacturer to roll out new updates, but it is one of the most reliable, usually updating its entire lineup, so it's a good bet the Xperia...

Sony Xperia X review: X marks the flop

 

Sony's smartphone business is in dire need of a reboot — something to jumpstart the company's mobile ambitions after years of being ignored by US carriers. Competitors like Samsung and Huawei are...

Beautiful display ; Metal back won't shatter like glass ; Battery lasts through the day

Wildly overpriced ; Uninspired design ; No fingerprint reader on US model

Sony's Xperia X is awesome to use one-handed (review)

 

Its compact shape and 5-inch screen makes Sony's less expensive Android phone a great fit.

The Sony Xperia X is a winning compact phone for its high-quality camera and ergonomic in-hand fit. The dedicated camera button gives you a convenient quick-shoot option.

Battery life is constrained, and the fingerprint reader won't work on the US version of the phone.

A reliable and likable midrange phone, the Xperia X stands out for its palm-friendly build and strong camera, but we can't recommend it for US customers.

Sony Xperia X (black graphite)

 

But you do, and that's extremely useful for all the times when I've got my arms full with my giant purse, work badge, groceries, a cup of tea, a handhold on the bus, whatever. With your square sides that are easy to grip and the fast-acting fingerprint...

Sony Xperia X Smartphone Review

 

Ambitious. The Sony Xperia X aims to be a top smartphone and a photo artist in one device. Although the 5-inch Android system brings many features and high performance, is cannot fully meet its high, self-imposed claims.

elegant chassis ; fingerprint sensor ; 20 GB free storage space ; Android 6.0 ; WiFi 802.11ac and LTE ; high voice quality ; good camera ; bright display ; high system performance ; good battery life

expensive ; no 4K video recordings ; throttling under full load ; poor micro SD transfer rates ; non-removable battery ; quick-charge power adapter only for a surcharge

The Sony Xperia X does a lot of things right, but cannot entirely live up to its self-imposed claim of being a top smartphone. Nevertheless, there are many arguments in favor of the 5-inch Android phone. It features an elegant case made of aluminum and...

Sony Xperia X vs Apple iPhone 6s

 

Sony introduced a new portfolio of phones earlier this year, aiming to take a new direction from the aging Z-series. The Xperia X sits right smack in the middle of the new X-line in terms of specs, but not in price, so on paper it's not really the...

Great all-around camera ; Rich and quality app ecosystem ; Thin and light chassis ; Considerably better screen ; Faster performance all-around

With its more elegant body, better camera, faster chipset, and record LTE band support, the iPhone 6s seems destined to remain the popular choice compared to the Xperia X. Moreover, Sony priced its midranger just a hundred lower than the iPhone 6s,...

Sony Xperia X vs Sony Xperia Z5

 

Not even a day has gone by this past year without someone, somewhere, pondering over the unfortunate fate of esteemed manufacturers of old. Nokia, BlackBerry, even HTC, all are having trouble staying relevant in an increasingly murderous smartphone...

Less color-incorrect display ; Better-suited for heavy gaming ; Superior camera with 4K UHD video capture ; Stronger loudspeaker volume

Available for order at $549.99, the Xperia X is a smartphone that doesn't disappoint, but feels a bit too expensive for what it offers. And thanks to its seniority, the Xperia Z5 is dangerously close in terms of pricing—nowadays you can score one for...

Sony Xperia X vs Samsung Galaxy S7

 

Sony is on an aggressive timeline: it's releasing new phones every 6 months or so, but this time it's different.

At the end of the day, the Sony Xperia X turns out to be a good phone with a beautiful and refined design, while performance is decent in practically every department, but never great. The phone is priced at $550, upper mid-range territory and $150...
