Weekly Poll: Would You Buy A Sony Xperia X Performance?

By 11:18 Tue, 03 Aug 2021 Comments

The Xperia X got a lukewarm reception in our poll, but people were hopeful for the Sony Xperia X Performance. Well, time to find out if they still feel the same after the review came out.

While the X lacked the flagship chipset and waterproofing required of a accurate Xperia Z5 successor, the Xperia X Performance ticks those checkboxes. And it has exclusivity on the brushed metal finish for its metal back (the back of the X is available in satin only).

The phone also carries over the 5" 1080p screen, which renders fantastic colors thanks to the Triluminos tech, and the top-notch sound setup with the stereo speakers and 24-bit High Res audio.

The 23MP capturing camera features predictive autofocus, which tracks objects and keeps them in focus automatically. It's an improvement over standard phase-detection AF thanks to the additional smarts (the 'predictive' part). And you acquire a 13MP selfie capturing camera for better self-portraits.

The capturing camera has a downside - it can't shoot 4K, but does offer 1080p @ 60fps. To be fair, the Huawei P9 has a similar limitation.

Harder to defdiscontinue is the regional availability of the fingerprint sensor (not available in the US) and the water resistance. Yep, some regions don't acquire you an Internet Protocol (IP) rating, at least as far as warranty is concerned. Having only 3GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) isn't ideal, neither is the 2,700mAh battery.

Availability is more limited than the Xperia X - both regionally and as timeframe. The Sony Xperia X Performance is available only in Taiwan correct now, while buyers have had months to jump on an S7, G5, HTC 10, P9, etc. And they paid less too.

So, are you holding out to buy an X Performance? Or are you giving Sony the crecent shoulder?
