Sony Xperia X unboxing and first look

The Sony Xperia X is coming to the scene as one of three new X series Sony Android handsets.

The Xperia X, however, packs a very distinct Sony design that has evolved in a quite impressive way from the Xperia Z series, as it features a nearly pure Android skin that performs and runs well, and finally, it has a new 23-megapixel, large-sensor camera.

It's an exciting phone, and that's why we took it for a quick unboxing right before diving in the detailed Xperia X review that should be coming up soon. But before all that, let's take a look at the Xperia X specs to know what we're dealing with:

Display5.0" at 1080 x 1920 pixels, LCD
HardwareSnapdragon 650 with 3GB of RAM
Camera23MP 1/2.3" main camera, 13MP selfie cam
Battery2620 mAh

With that in mind, here's what's in the box:

  • User manual
  • microUSB to USB cable
  • Wall charger
Stay tuned for the final and conclusive reivew coming up soon, but in the meantime do not hesitate to also check out the video with our first, unboxing impressions.

Such a boring design that they keep using over and over again. As if they are just recycling their old phones...boring!

People fail to understand that this phone is meant to compete with the A series of Galaxies... while the "Performance" is the one competing for top spot... I agree that the design has been recycled for too long, and the price is not as good as other offerings... but either way, people in the US are completely predisposed to not buy anything other than Apple or Samsung

Doesn't help that Sony won't include the fingerprint scanner in the US releases, either...
