Description

Xperia X is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 650 hexa-core chipset, which may be a step below the premium-tier SD 820 SoC, but packs plenty of high performance potential. There are 3GB of RAM and up to 32GB (single SIM version) / 64GB (dual SIM version) of expandable storage. The Xperia X features a 5-inch 1080p resolution display with Sony's Triluminos and X-Reality image enhancement technologies. Sony equipped the Xperia X with a 23MP camera that, uber-large photos aside, serves up Predictive Hybrid Autofocus. Other extras on board include Quick launch, 5x Clear Image Zoom, a 24mm G-Lens with F2.0 aperture, and 1080p video recording. Meanwhile, the front camera is a seriously big 13MP.

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 441 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

  • Positioning:

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
