Sony launches the Xperia X Performance and Xperia XA in the US
posted by Florin T. / Jul 19, 2016, 6:20 PM
The Xperia X Performance costs $699.99, and comes with a 128 GB SanDisk microSD card in the box, while the Xperia XA is priced at $279.99, coming with a 64 GB card. For some reason, the free microSD card doesn't seem to be available for the Xperia X Performance if you're purchasing the handset from Amazon.
We already reviewed the Sony Xperia X Performance and Sony Xperia XA, but, instead of being impressed by them, we were rather disappointed. Anyhow, if you visit the Sony Mobile US website (via the source links below), you'll find links to all the places in the US where these new Xperias are currently available. The smartphones will work on most GSM/LTE carriers (starting with AT&T and T-Mobile), but not on CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint.

Anyone knows the reason why the fingerprint scanners are disabled on the US models?

When will they learn? Similar story every year. Meh phones for outrageous prices, no marketing, key features disabled in certain markets, and no carrier availability. Yes, I've had an Xperia phone. Battery saver was good and that's about it. The UI is old and needs a complete redesign. Sony, step up your game.
