Deal: Get the Sony Xperia X for just $250 from B&H

Perhaps the best thing about smartphones' frantic release pace is the fact that, while everyone's raving about the newest and latest, previous generation devices that are by no means obsolete get some great price cuts. Such is the case here: all the newest Xperias have either been newly-released, or are just around the corner, and meanwhile last year's Xperia X is now selling for just $250, which is $100 less than its normall asking price.

The deal comes courtesy of B&H, and comes in all three of the phone's color options: Graphite Black, Lime Gold, and the currently out-of-stock White. The variant sold is the unlocked North American one, which means the device will work with all major carriers.

Our own review of the phone was somewhat critical, but our main concern was its price. Seeing as this is no longer the case, the Xperia X now seems much more approachable for those seeking a good mid-ranger on the cheap. The device's key selling feature is its rear camera, which sports a 23 MP sensor and the ability to "predict" the direction of moving objects, ensuring sharp focus. The phone comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB internal memory, and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 650 SoC. The Xperia X comes with Android Marshmallow out of the box, but can also be updated to Nougat.

No need to trade-off. Lot's of midrange phones that do more and look better for less.

It seems like a good deal... maybe my wife want to upgrade her Z1C to the X.
