Posted in Gadgets & Reviews7 years ago • Written by MAKNo Comments

Sony Xperia X, which was announced in MWC in February 2016, along with Sony Xperia XA and Sony Xperia Ultra is now available for sale in the UK. Let us try to look at its amazing features and how it stands well to its counterparts in speed, performance, looks and price.

Sony Xperia X runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 with Qualcomm MSM8956 Snapdragon chipset fitted. Further, the smartphone is powered with dual-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A72 and quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex- A53 processors that help deliver amazing work performance. But why not Snapdragon 820 at such price? A question only maker could answer. However, for the avid gamers, there is good news. The Xperia X is a smart gaming device that lets you enjoy even heavy games without even a jerk. Moreover, the Sony’s PS4 remote play feature allows the user to convert their phones into portable display while streaming the games on the go.

Nothing to boast on the storage front, the Xperia X comes with a standard 32 GB storage, however, you could well expand it up to 256 GB with a microSD card slot on the side underneath the SIM card tray. Well, the camera will quite impress you with 23 MP hybrid autofocus technology, but again you will need some extra storage as the image size would be pretty large. A 13 MP front camera will surely catch the attention of the selfies lovers for you can now take detailed images of exceptional quality but somewhere you will have to compromise with the poor backlit surroundings. Unlike the HTC 10, image stabilization is missing in the selfies camera.

Talking of the battery, Xperia X is packed with 2620mAH that could last up to 16 hours meaning you would not require plugging the phone for charging for at least one day even after heavy media use. This makes it sit in competition with Xperia Z5 and Z5 compact. In only two hours, the battery is fully charged; however, if you make use of the camera app, the battery will discharge at the same rate.

The fingerprint scanner that is there on the side of the phone is definitely a high point of the smartphone. Faster than the Z5’s fingerprint scanner, you can now keep your personal stuff safe from anyone viewing it or even trying to copy something confidential. Moreover, since the smartphone has built-in NFC support, the users would be able to authorize Android Pay transaction just like apple users making use of Apple Pay.

As far as the Xperia X audio is concerned, it has a good sound quality, thanks to the forward facing stereo speakers. Video conferencing or watching a YouTube video, audio will never be a problem. The included hardware i.e. the headset is also of good quality. With noise suppression feature, the calls are clear.

Talking more of the amazing features of the Sony smartphone, the screen is a good 5-inch and features the signature omni-balance design with lots of improvements over its predecessor Z5. However, the only disappointment at the display front is not upgrading the resolution to 2560X1440 panels.

Triluminous display technology that gives an amazing viewing experience is coupled with IPS LCD capacitive touch screen. The display is undoubtedly fantastic delivering rich images without looking oversaturated. Exceptionally bright even at low light, keep taking the images without worrying about the quality. However, the edge-to-edge display of the Xperia XA definitely scores higher here.  Scratch resistant glass and oleophobic coating gives added protection against any fall.

The makers of the phone have launched it in four color variants; White, Graphite Black, Lime Gold and Rose Gold. The phone comes with both single SIM and Dual SIM slots (both NANO SIM). Weighing 153 grams, the 5-inch smartphone with its curved, rounded corners sit comfortably in one’s hands. The metal back provides for a good grip and if seen from a distance one could easily mistake it for the Z5. But, yes what it lacks from the Z5 is that it is not water resistant.


Apart, from the performance and the looks, it is time to look for Sony Xperia X gold deals made available by UK mobile operators like Vodafone, Virgin, O2, EE and three.
