Sony Xperia X Performance: Specs

Sony completely changed tack with its range of premium Android smartphones in 2016. While the past five years or so have seen its Xperia Z family lead the way, this year it decided that X marks the spot with not one, but three Xperia X devices.

All three Xperia X phones are clearly delineated by specs and price, with the Xperia X Performance rocking not only the heftiest pricetag, but also the most cutting-edge specs inside. This puts it in more direct competition with the likes of the HTC 10 and Samsung Galaxy S7.

Sony Xperia X Performance: Buy outright

Sony has packed all of its premium technologies into the Sony Xperia X Performance, so it shouldn't come as a big surprise that the phone has a premium price tag to match. Of course, that's also part of Sony's strategy in having three Xperia X handsets on the market, so if the Performance is beyond your price range, consider the Sony Xperia X.

Sony Xperia X Performance: Review

Sony has made a habit of trying to leverage its significant expertise in a wide array of technology areas to deliver the best performance for its smartphones. The Xperia X Performance delivers solid performance with an impressive camera, and a nicely refreshed design.

"Earlier Xperia phones were indistinct bricks with nipple-style power buttons on the side. The Xperia X Performance has the same flat fingerprint scanner on the side as the Xperia Z series phones, but matched with a rounded, elegant design that looks good and fits well in the hand without being notably slippery."

Still, battery life is a concern, and given Sony's previous attempts to push the boundaries of screen resolution on a smart device, the Xperia X Performance's 1080p display seems less than premium.
