I love Sony, but I must say: The range of X as a whole was disappointing. Too bad Sony, hopefully another year to change the mentality that will eat you alive.

Sony Mobile have fired a lot of people in Sweden where the software/hardware developers worked. Over 1000 employes in 2015. So they have basicly a very limited R&D departement at their current state. I think we see the result of it now. If you want to compete with Samsung, Huawei etc..You must have resources to.

You do not need a huge r&d department to stop releasing crap. Oneplus 3 trumps every sony released from 2015 till now and half of the price of that s**t x performance and the company is like 40 people large or something

“Unbeatable” I had been told to purchase the phone and I was glad to see that nothing could beat my expectations. Only the good phones make you feel comfortable. Only good things strike out to rock the stage. Like I have purchased the Oppo A37. This is really found out to be tremendous. For instance the camera of the phone is really awesome. Perfections to its best is the phone that you have.

I desperately regret buying this phone. I must have been half asleep when I let the salesman steer me onto this model and brand. It is crippled by deleted features, e.g.: 1) no gyroscope => no Google Cardboard or any other VR 2) call blocking (standard in Android) deleted in Experia => no way to stop the barrage of SPAM and Phishing calls. and so on .... Seriously DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE.

I own a Sony XA. It is more than i good phone. It work's faster then most phones on market (forget the benchmarks etc.). IT HAS QUICK CHARGE 2.0, it fill from 25% to 100% in exact 60min (not in airplane mode). It has sharp and very good quallity screen, Back 13MP and front 8MP camera, not the best, but far good enough quallity. For the size of the screen it is VERY small phone. On the hand it fill just like aluminium casing, no one wont figure it out it isnt. It has 16GB internal, and if you dont use micro sd you can have dual micro SIM cards. I bought it for 3 eur/month, with 10eur/month unlimited all and 3GB data. (So, for 72eur!) In the end is the best phone you can buy for value/money. And you here on phonearena, who are contributing for samsung, next time don't write false things, like that it doesnt quick charge etc...
