Sony Xperia X review: Good-looking phone with a great camera & battery life, but it’s too expensive
SONY XPERIA X REVIEW
In an unusual move that surprised us all, Sony decided not to launch the Sony Xperia Z5 Tablet we were expecting at MWC 2016, but instead added a brand-new smartphone range to the mix. The new Xperia X series offers specs that sit just below the flagship Z range, plus some interesting new features for the camera and screen. We’ve spent some time with the Sony Xperia X, so here we bring you our full and in-depth Sony Xperia X review.
It’s unclear at the moment but it’s possible that the Xperia X range is in fact a replacement for the Z range. There may never be an Xperia Z6 smartphone but we hope there is as changing the flagship range from Z to X is unnecessarily confusing.
Sony has had it tough in the smartphone segment lately. Traditionally, Samsung and Apple have been their competition, however, it’s fair to say that China-based brands have posed bigger problems for them.
The Japanese brand is mostly running its ship on the back of the strong demand for its PlayStation 4 gaming console, and with the Xperia X, they are hoping for some smartphone love. Priced at Rs 46,990, the phone is built to take a flagship-level fight.
