Sony: Not everything that means Xperia is waterproof

Sony’s smartphones were since known to be waterproof. This may be sometimes due to Sony’s flagship devices not only long time were only waterproof available, but also because Sony one of the first smartphones with this standard on the market placed. But the Sony Xperia x, the successor of the Sony Xperia Z from the year 2013, just this standard has been dropped. And, although it is a high end device and thus a flagship Smartphone of manufacturer. But fortunately this standard not at all Sony Smartphones has been removed, but more on that later. In the coming paragraphs, we introduce four more smartphones of the Japanese manufacturer in detail.

Sony Xperia X in detail: Bars – now with fingerprint sensor

The Xperia X is Sony’s first Smartphone of the new series and is classified in the upscale middle class. The design has hardly changed: bars, aluminium housing and Omni-balance typical elements – unmistakably a Sony device.

The power button is located on the left side of the Xperia X and at the same time acts as a fingerprint sensor. Underneath is the volume rocker, as well as a dedicated shutter button for the camera. In addition, there is a slot for the Nano-SIM and MicroSD card. The 32 GB internal memory can therefore extend up to 256 GB. The phone measures 142 mm in height, 69 mm in width and is thus roughly as big as a Galaxy S7.

The IPS display measured 5 inches in diagonal resolves with 1920 x 1080 pixels (full HD). Front speakers on the top and bottom also adorn the front. In comparison to the Z5, the screen Xperia X has become brighter and more contrast. As a processor is Qualcomm’s middle-class SoC, Snapdragon 650, used, which is sufficient with the 3 GB large memory for everyday tasks. For gamers, the Xperia X is however unsuitable, as graphically rich games immediately juddering become apparent. Sony abandons a USB C port the Xperia x and instead used a conventional micro-USB connector, the 2.620 mAh powerful battery is charged via the. Wireless on charging possibilities does not offer the X.

The main camera resolves with 23 mega pixels and has a predictive auto focus. This tracks the objects and ensures a fast focus. Videos are not recorded in ultra-HD, but only in full HD. The image quality is satisfactory in good light, not match up but to Samsung, Apple , or Huawei . Therefore the camera is not a selling point. You can find more detailed information in our test of the Sony Xperia X and XA.

Sony Xperia X compared – conclusion: No unique selling propositions

The Xperia X is a mid-range Smartphone in the elegant design and with a convincing display. But, the Smartphone does not offer more selling points. On the contrary, no USB C port, no wireless charging, no protection against water and dust, as well as no UHD video recording. Overall, the USPS and therefore also the raison d ‘ être of this phone are missing. The device is not particularly bad at a current price of 380 euro – waiting for the competition but with similar devices.

Sony Xperia X compact

Sony’s compact smartphone models of in recent years aimed at users who want high-end technology in Pocket format. For this reason, they were very popular. However, in this year the Japanese manufacturer chooses a different concept: the Xperia X Compact is still compact, offers only middle-class hardware. In addition, compromise on the choice of material were made.

With 129 mm in height and 65 mm in width, the Smartphone compared to other Android phones is very handy. To the device with 135 g is extremely easy, the completely built-up plastic makes it possible. The construction depth of 9 mm is, however, quite large and a little clunky makes the X compact.

The display is 4.6 inches and offers an HD resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. There is a satisfactory display thus not the sharpest, but still. The screen of two front speakers is surrounded. Sony has saved even when the processor: a Snapdragon 650, which must cope with fewer pixels, but is still not used for high end use is used. More repentance a potential buyer of the device with the absence of a purchase IP certification must take. The X Compact is thus protected against dust, nor water.

The battery is measured 2,700 mAh and C port to recharge via USB. A quick charge feature is supported.Furthermore, the 23 megapixel main camera has an image stabilizer, corrected the camera shake in 5 axes. The front camera MP resolves with 5.

Sony Xperia X compact in comparison – conclusion: Compact hardware in a compact smartphone

The Xperia X Compact is aimed at users looking for a small and lightweight Smartphone in the first place. In doing so should they be dependent on high end hardware and to befriend with the idea that the Xperia X Compact has mainly an existing plastic housing. The battery life is good because of the small screen and the low resolution. The missing IP certification, is disappointing, however, what actually was Sony’s trademark.

Sony Xperia X performance compared

The design of the Xperia X performance is identical to that of the Xperia X. differences can be found in the technical equipment: the Xperia X performance is equipped with a Snapdragon 820 and 3 GB memory. In addition, this Smartphone is certified and therefore dust – and waterproof according to IP65 and IP68. The 2,700 mAh powerful battery can be download via micro-USB connector. It’s a pity that Sony here not opts for type-C USB. A quick charging technology is still supported. The matching plug this is however not included but must be – purchased with a low double-digit range not very expensive, yet annoying. The main camera offers a resolution of 23 megapixels. Videos to be maximum full HD record. The front camera resolves with 13 MP and also has an aperture of f 2.0.

Sony Xperia X performance compared – conclusion: a better Xperia X

In principle, this is a better Xperia X X performance. Consequently, this phone is aimed at users who like the design of the X, but from water and dust do not want to miss more powerful hardware, as well as the protection.

Sony Xperia XZ: Z5’s successor in the check

After the less successful market launch of the Z5 premium, Sony is now pinning his hopes in the XZ. This flagship Smartphone to more strongly positioned in the high-end segment and convinced the customers by its premium equipment. The design differs a little from the other Xperia models. In principle, the design is a rectangular-shaped, whose left and right Seite are rounded. The material used is aluminium.

Qualcomm’s flagship SoC, Snapdragon 820, 3 GB memory to the page are the works inside. Thus, it is possible to play any challenging task on the 5.2-inch full-HD display, liquid. The 32 GB of internal memory is expandable up to 256 GB X models, as with all Xperia. The camera of the XZ differs from other X-: it has still a laser auto-focus and a 5-axis image stabilization in addition to the hybrid auto focus. The front camera resolves with 13 MP and also houses an optical image stabilizer. The whole technology is supplied with the 2,900 mAh powerful battery that is recharged using quick batch 3.0. As a port, Sony uses the future-proof USB C standard.

Sony Xperia XZ compared – conclusion: Strong Smartphone with strong price

The Xperia XZ is currently the best thing has to offer Sony and is aimed at users who want to make any compromises. The design is beautiful and the facilities luxuriant. The housing is dust – and waterproof. For this purpose, the XZ has but also a proud price of currently 669 euros.

Conclusion: Current Sony smartphones

Sony does not makes it easy really its customers. First, the Z-series is set, then numerous X Smartphones that are hardly different at first glance. We hope with our comparison to have managed little overview and a or the decision simplifies others to have. What do you think of the new Xperia smartphones? Tells like it us in the comments. If you liked this article, then it should like further.
