Sony Xperia X review: Rated X

20 May, 2016
There's a shift of command in the house of Xperia. The Sony Xperia X and its two siblings are taking over from the Xperia Z. A dynasty has come to an end. We hear the C and M families are being put out to pasture as well, soon it will be all X top to bottom.

After a little more than 2 years of use the battery - just like with most phones I've used so far - started to get worse and worse. At this point I'm charging for about 7hrs to get it to 100% while one full charge doesn't get me through an entire day of moderate use.

Just letting you know since the review speaks about this point specifically, stating that exactly this would not be the case. Turns out: It will be.

Looking for some deals on Black Friday to order a new phone and will put the Xperia X to rest after like 2 years and 2 months of use. It was a great phone while it lasted but it didn't last particularly long (as opposed to what one could assume from this review), so be careful with trusting such claims.

Xperia x is very good quality phon. But one things suffered me so much. I can't make any local call when my i stay in my connected wifi area. Even others also can't making call to my cell !! And Network signal buffering suddenl. My current operating system version is Android Orieo 8.0

AnonD-651165, 10 Mar 2017guys, which phone should I buy? Xperia X or Huawei P9? Please help :(The Xperia X is a great choice, I have one and I picked it up at Best buy for only $279. I know the Huawei is a high rated phone but it will cost more and not have as great a camera.

I got an Xperia X Dual for £210 imported to the UK from Hong Kong. At this price the phone is now an absolute BARGAIN for such quality and there is little difference between the X and the current 2017 flagships costing £400-£700! I also think it's the perfect size at 5.0 inches for typing - large enough that typing is fast and accurate, yet one handed typing is also doable and it fts in pocket easily.

This phone is a Boss, the battery lasts me 7 days with light usage hahaha! The quality makes all other phones look like and feel like cheap rubbish. The speed and camera are awesome, never lags with anything even when multitasking. Fingerprint scanner is fast and works perfectly everytime even upside down! and the sound is loud and clear. The Xperia X is nothing like the M series, it is the improved modern version of the Z5. Oh and both rear and front facing cameras are as good as a DSLR. I recommend this phone to everyone.

Sony managed to get good camera review for their low range Xperia E5 but they screwed up their flagship camera. Very bad Sony :(

  • AnonD-573126

The WiFi on my Z3c failed out of warranty and cannot be repaired so looked for a new phone and this seemed to fit the bill. Seems like Carphone Warehouse are being left with stock. Current offer is 6gb data unlimited texts and calls for £32 a month for 24 months with Vodafone. Over the contract period that is just £288 more than my current SIM only 5gb deal at £20 a month!! As the only downside in this review was price I did the deal.
