Sony has its share of laurels, and it is appreciated for the best camera sensors used not only in the Sony phones but also in the other devices. Though there were lot of expectations from Sony from Mobile enthusiasts but to some extent Sony has been off the target.
Sony have somehow reached its saturation level by continuing the same design for over 4 years. I agree with the very famous saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” but I guess, Sony have stretched it a bit too far. The Xperia X is a great example to it.
An offering from Sony which was released about 10 months ago, was priced ridiculously at Rs 48,990. Sony Xperia X and Xperia XA India Priced Ridiculously High – we wrote about it. Sony and pricing don’t go well together, same is true for HTC.
Suddenly, It has recently seen a massive price cut and is now available at Rs 24,990, a flat discount of Rs 22,000. It was launched at Rs 46,990.
The Xperia X flaunted a similar design which would make it easy to recognize it as a Xperia phone. It sports a side mounted fingerprint sensor, which according to me is one of the best place to implement the sensor.
It features a 5 inch FHD, LCD, Triluminous display with 2.5D curved display on top. It came with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 650 SOC and Adreno 510 GPU are pretty fast.
There’s 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, which can easily expand through micro SD cards.
It features a 23 MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF. The front sports a 13 MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture.
Sony has been a delight for audiophiles, one can never be let down with the audio performance of Xperia phones. Well fortunately, it still has a 3.5 mm headphone jack. It supports 24-bit audio enhancement which certainly delivers a crisp, well-balanced, loud output through the audio jack.
Powering the phone is a rather sizeable 2620 mAh battery pack. Which certainly isn’t much, when compared to the 4100 mAh battery packed in similarly sized nutshell from the Chinese offerings.
The phone misses on USB type-C but features quick charge 2.0, making it easy for heavy users to top it up soon enough. Recently, it also started receiving the latest Android Nougat updates.
A phone with mid ranger spec sheet and Rs 46,990 was a big mistake. Although, the current Rs 24,990 still makes it a bit more on the expensive side, but the brand value of Sony might indeed attract a lot of customers.
Even though, it’ll directly compete with flagships like Xiaomi Mi 5, slightly expensive OnePlus 3 and 3T and the battery beast Moto Z Play.
A lot of Sony fans can take advantage of the price cut and can own this beautiful Xperia Device, finally, some good sense has returned to Sony pricing team.
