Unlocked Sony Xperia X can now be bought for as low as $399

Released in the US back in June for $549.99, the Sony Xperia X can now be purchased for as low as $399 unlocked - that's $150 off the original price. Right now, only Amazon is selling the Xperia X for just $399, and only the black version of the phone is available at this price. However, the other color variants (white, lime gold, and rose gold) aren't much more expensive, costing $424.

When we reviewed the Xperia X we noted that the phone was too expensive for what it offered. But $399 is not a bad price for the device, which comes with decent features like a Snapdragon 650 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a battery that lasts more than 1 day on a single charge.

Of course, instead of buying an Xperia X, you may be tempted to get the newer and more powerful Sony Xperia XZ, which is officially available in the US since earlier this month. But the Xperia XZ currently costs $699.99, so it's definitely not an option to consider if you're on a budget.

i wonder which is worse? Cutting the price after only a few months of release or no one is still buying it after they have cut the price?

Go figure that the boring color is the only one on sale this way. Will pass on this though.

Sony, releasing a new flagship every fart, with super high prices, s**tty availability and overpriced phones, and they still wonder why their mobile division is beyond pathetic levels.

Beyond pathetic levels? Even this midrange Xperia X was able to keep up or outperform the other flagships in terms of performance. The XZ even outperformed the Note 7 on a big margin:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xWR8GXjc9Q And guess which Android manufacturer has the lowest crash rate? Sony.http://www.xperiablog.net/2016/08/16/sony-xperia-devices-are-most-stable-smartphones-around-report/ They're doing a great job with software. And not only with software, their new camera is very good as well in good lighting:https://recombu.com/mobile/article/sony-xperia-xz-camera-review-test-comparison-vs-iphone-7-vs-galaxy-s7. Please tell me why the G5, S7 and the 10 are better flagships than Sony's flagships. Even AA liked the XZ, which is strange for an American site:http://www.androidauthority.com/sony-xperia-xz-review-714081/

He didn't in reality. His post was filled with seemingly true facts but he doesn't even know himself that what he said isn't enough. Nor does he know anything about the tough competition the xperias are facing from other brands. That's what I could infer from his post.....

Sorry for replying that late, but I have just read this article But I think he meant that Sony Mobile Division is in a bad place because its phones aren't selling .
