For those who may not know, Sony would be dropping the “Z” in the name of future Sony flagship smartphones and adopting “X” instead. The “X” series are to mark a complete overhaul in design and performance of subsequent flagships to come.
Earlier this year, Sony launched its first set of X series smartphones which have been assessed as indeed promising & ready to set Sony back on the path of profit making. The 3 X-series smartphones are the Xperia X, Xperia XA & the Xperia X Performance.
The Sony Xperia X Performance is a Beast. Starting with its slim, sleek build that’s comfortable to hold, to its blazing processor, the X Performance sure delivers in line with its name. It’s 23MP Sony camera is one of the Best in the market right now, with an equally impressive 13MP selfie.
Let’s look at its features closely:
•5in 1080x1920p IPS LCD screen @441ppi
•2.2GHz Quadcore Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU
•3GB RAM, 32GB ROM exp via microSD to 200GB
•23MP camera with fast autofocus, OIS & LED flash, 13MP selfie camera
•Fingerprint Touch ID recognition
•Single or Dual SIM support
•Water & Dust resistant
No price info just yet until it hits International Markets this month. But a likely price range is set at between $600 & $850
Highs – Screen resolution, build quality, Cameras, CPU, OS, water & dust resistant, very fast Touch ID response
Lows – Screen ratio could have been higher than the 66% it has now(wide bezels), quite thick & bulky, Battery (though the ultra power saving modes could help in this regard)
Overall, it’s a fantastic smartphone that’s very promising, strong and indeed Premium.
