Some (rightfully) felt that that the X-series isn’t a huge improvement over the Z-series it’s meant to replace. That’s for the Xperia X, though, people still expressed hope for the Xperia X Performance.
As we noted in our review, the price of the X cannot stand. It’s higher than the Xperia M5 (which is arguably just as good a phone) and is higher even than the Xperia Z5 (not to mention Galaxy S7, LG G7, …).
So now we play the waiting game – wait for Sony to drop the price to reasonable levels.
