It has the bark, but desperately lacks the bite

Sony Xperia X

from Gearburn ( )

There’s brisk performance, a solid design and a camera capable of excellent daytime snaps. But for R11 999, you’d expect better low-light camera performance, a cutting-edge processor and a phone that doesn’t overheat (yet again).

Desirable design, but little else

I like how the Xperia XA looks. I really do. That skinny bezel makes it look like a much more expensive phone and means you can easily use it one hand. But the disappointing display, lack of fingerprint sensor, poor battery life and meagre internal storage -- not to mention Sony's insistence on bundling bloatware -- means this phone still falls short of the mark. For less money you can pick up the Motorola Moto G4 Plus, which has none of the XA's shortcomings and throws in water resistance too.

Streamlined at a cost

Sony Xperia X Performance

from Pocketnow ( )

The Xperia X line represents a drastic shift in philosophy for Sony, and many transition devices were a bit rough around the edges. Look at how Samsung struggled from the Galaxy S4 to the Galaxy S6. We can only hope that future Xperia X phones are better refined and well-rounded products.

Sony's high-end Android phone is seriously lacking

Sony Xperia X Performance

from TechRadar ( )

It's as if Sony doesn't realize how cutthroat this market is. Snapdragon 820 performance, waterproofing and microSD support aside, there's not enough here to recommend this overly expensive Android phone.

High on camera specs, battery life

I usually think Sony phones are a bit overpriced, like most of big brands out there.

I usually think Sony phones are a bit overpriced, like most of big brands out there. However, the Xperia XA Ultra seems a value buy for those who consider the camera, screen and battery as their main priorities. There might be other phones that do better on sheer performance in this range, but they would have had to cut corners on the other three fronts. Sony might just be able to tap into a niche market here.

A new designer piece

Sony Xperia XA

from Notebookcheck ( )

The Xperia XA will primarily catch the attention with its slim line, but the inner values in the form of a fast SoC, bright screen, and expandable storage are also very convincing. It is ultimately the short battery life that ruins the review sample's otherwise decent outcome.

Xperia X Performance is currently the best Sony smartphone. This, however, does not mean that it’s equal to all other premium models. This smartphone comes with a Snapdragon 820 CPU, and it is only natural that we do not have any remarks as regards performance or exterior temperatures after a continuous stress test. X Performance has a Full HD display, and not Quad HD, which will be a drawback only for those who want everything contemporary technology can offer.

The beautifully flawed budget phone

Sony Xperia XA

from G Style Magazine ( )

The Xperia XA is a really good budget phone. If you want to spend less than $300 and get a really good phone then I wouldn’t be mad at you if this phone was your choice. It has a lot going for it. Sturdy design, sleek, curved glass, bezel-less edges, great camera, lightweight.

Too expensive for what you get

Sony Xperia XA

from PC Magazine ( )

For $280, the Sony Xperia XA just doesn't bring enough to the table to justify its price. Despite a high-quality build it suffers from sluggish performance, mediocre battery life, and a relatively low-resolution display.

The Sony Xperia X does a lot of things right, but cannot entirely live up to its self-imposed claim of being a top smartphone. Nevertheless, there are many arguments in favor of the 5-inch Android phone. It features an elegant case made of aluminum and plastic, which also feels premium to the touch, even though the chassis cannot keep up fully with its Xperia Z5 predecessor. On the other hand, the phone comes with a bright and viewing-angle-stable Full HD display, a fingerprint sensor, the latest Android 6.0, 20 GB of free storage space, good communication features, and the fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 MSM8956 as its nerve center.

I hate it.

Sony Xperia Z3

Overheating makes the phone frozen constantly. Not existent warranty. I had Sony in great esteem until now. Total waste of money and effort to fix this phone.

Serious memory issues...

Ok, the music player is well specced, but my cheapo, entry level LG III, at half the price, which I bought the Sony to replace, runs rings round it in every other department... I gave the Sony to my partner, who uses it as a phone, which it's quite good at, and as a BBC Radio iPlayer handset, and while iPlayer seems to be one of the few apps that transfer to internal memory, it seems to store downloads on the phone memory, or both! So problems there too... Taught me to be more questioning about the internal set up of a phone, but will avoid Sony in future...

I finally decided to upgrade from my previous Xperia Arc due only to speed/storage issues. Being so happy with the previous Xperia, which I had for 3-1/2 years & took a beating, I decided to stick with this product line & got the Z3 Compact. In my first month, it fell out of my chest pocket while bending over at about 1'. The screen totally fractured & the phone is now useless. In searching Google, there are substantial reports of similar failures. This phone is far too fragile to last out your contract. This is nowhere near as robust as my previous.
