by XB on 14th April 2016

in Videos, Xperia X series


Xperia X Camera Promo VideoSony Mobile has been sending out emails today to those who had pre-registered their interest in the Xperia X family of smartphones. Sony confirms that ‘exclusive’ pre-order offers will be available on the Xperia X/XA and Xperia Ear from the Xperia Store. Sony is keeping tight-lipped on what these offers are, but all will become clear once pre-orders shortly open.

The same email is also giving users a first look at the latest Xperia X promotional advert. The video concentrates on the camera and focuses on the Predictive Hybrid Autofocus feature, which automatically tracks a subject, predicting its next move, keeping the subject in focus the entire time. Sony says that the Xperia X is its speediest smartphone camera yet, taking 0.6 seconds to take a photo via the quick-launch button and fast image processing. You can check out the video below and we will keep you posted once the Xperia X pre-order offers go live.

Xperia X pre-order offers coming soon

Xperia X Pre-Order Offer

Thanks Matt!

    why not amoled with 2k display. WHY.

  • Hideg Jen? Péter

    Cuz battery draining.
    1080p is good enough for me.
    (On my Xperia SP 720p battery drainings amps: darkest – 180amps, brighest – 380amps)

  • Tibor Hornyák

    For u… but i had to switch to 2k display from sony. As i am a sony fun, but 4k is not good, 2k is optimal. For what?

    Simcity buildit app . U cannot zoom in with a 1080p display device or out far.

    And so on….

    2k 4k can u tell the difference?
    On z5 its so vivid I wonder how x would be
    Impressive speed on capture lets hope it wont b slow after time with apps loaded on d device

  • Hideg Jen? Péter

    I know that. (Not my taste Simcity buildit, there much waste of time for doings, I do NFS No Limits, Drift Spirits Japanese, Real Racing 3, Bike Unchained and…CSR 2)

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Amoled indeed please say something better

  • Vuyo Ncube

    OLED is generally still too expensive for midrangers.

  • Constantine

    Is it possible to get such interface on Z2 without root etc.?

  • RockStar2005

    Tochi,

    To answer your question, you should watch the video below. I particularly like 3:35 – 4:25!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=g5SJq-Jag20&app=desktop

  • RockStar2005

    What about the Xperia X Performance??! I pre-registered for it weeks ago. I hope pre-orders start soon, and include Amazon.

  • Omarion07

    Be careful you don’t get bashed by Sony zealots, coz according to their logic:
    2k display: overkill (but when Sony releases a 4k smartphone it’s a step in the right direction).
    Amoled: please no!!! causes burn in on display
    4GB ram: overkill
    OIS, Dual camera, Ultrapixels and dualpixels: Gimmick
    Wireless charching, IR blaster, heart rate monitor sensor: Gimmick (But when Sony adds fingerprint scanner.. It’s very important for security purposes).

    A note for Sony zealots: if you’re very happy with FHD display, 3gb of RAM, same camera technology and same specs from 2 years ago, why don’t you go buy a Z2!! you can get it for 200$ on Ebay.

  • Achtius

    Hopefully they are going to sell them in Canada unlocked

  • John Walker

    Xperia X performance will have snapdragon 820. 810 in z5 is very bad and slow and heats up easily

  • ramuk

    Why don’t you just buy Samsung/other manufacturer phone instead of just whining here huh? Obviously Sony not going to make a phone that going to fulfill you whiners each and every dream spec phone. Either buy what they make or buy other brand’d phone. No one is stoping you buy other companies phone that has 2k amoled panel,4 GB ram, OIS, Dual camera, wireless charching etc.

  • John Walker

    Amoled is kindergarten bullshit screen with childish colors

  • RockStar2005

    Yeah those are the more obvious issues. But I like this video (above) because it shows differences you wouldn’t necessarily notice on the Z5 w/o an X right next to it. See 3:35 – 4:20 for example.

  • Omarion07

    Well I’m a Sony fan myself and I’ve been using sony phones since the sony Ericsson k700i but I’m fed up with Sony not keeping up with the latest specs and releasing mediocre products.. Sony will continue to loose customers if they keep having the mentality of ‘if it ain’t broken don’t fix it’!

  • ramuk

    You fed up with Sony, good then Ditch Sony and buy the phone of your dream spec instead of whining here. You don’t need to concern yourself with a company that you are already fed up with. Do yourself and everyone else here a favor – buy other companies phone that has the spec that you think fulfill your need. Do not worry if Sony loose customers. Sony will be fine without the likes of you.

  • Omarion07

    Ok calm your titts down keyboard warrior.. I was just expressing my opinion!

  • ramuk

    So was I. Where the “hell calm you titts” comes from? You are obviously more butthurt then I estimated. In each and every xperiablog post you whine like a little bitch. FYI, this is not your personal blog where you can release all your pent up frustration. If you have nothing constructive to say but whine whine like a bitch then I suggest you take a meditation. That will make you less agitated. LOL keyboard warrior. Can you see the irony of your post.? All he do is whine using his keyboard then call other people keyboard warrior. LOL.

    First you d have to explain why all of the above mentioned would have any benefits for the user you know. Except that 1gb more I do not see any.
    And no, us “zealots” just like HOW Sony uses tech to the benefit of the user, we dont mind the freakin numbers as much as you do…
    If Sony adds fingerprint or 2k screen or 1gb more its ok with us, as long as it has ANY and SOME usefullness…
    What benefit those 2camera on some phones have is beyond me, one g5 uses it for wide tunnel vision shots, another p9 for raw b&w shots….wtf?
    If that is not called gimmick I really dont know what is…

    And this is discussion, not attacking of zealots, get it?

    Yo want amoled 2k screen?
    For ex, Amoled has lifespan about 4000hr, ips has 10 000hr, why in hell would you want inferior endurance tech?
    Would like more maH battery but hey, if this one with Sony optimization and screen tech provides better battery life than most other phones out there with bigger maH, why bitch about number of maH?
    You want OIS? I do not thank you, as Sonys EIS has no competition in video stabilisation by any OIS device.
    And dont start with photo quality, its perfectly fine, industry leading, and does great low light shots too, as many time presented.
    Funny you dont mind most other flags not having front stereospeakers as your z2 has….Do you bitch them about it, or can you live without it, as long as you get punchy colored amoled screen which you obviously cant respect a phone without?

    This is not an attack of a zealot, this is a discussion in hope of you to see that most of your bitching is without proper cause
    Etc, etc….

  • David Gattenberg

    Not waterproof ??? no figerprint sensor?

  • RockStar2005

    I feel ya man! We here in the U.S. have to wait ’til June too. F’ing sucks! Sony announced the X series phones in February, as did everyone else mainly, and their phones are out or coming out this month. HTC will have theirs out next month, but it was just announced this week.

    Why does don’t need more time when it won’t even still as many phones as Samsung? Makes no sense. So I’m stuck with my overrated S7 ’til then. lol

  • Ambitious Man

    X Performance.

  • Ambitious Man

    X Performance is selected market product.

  • Alex Norris

    Hmmm… Interesting, how Predictive autofocus will helps me to take landscapes….?
    It’s predictive focus in 90% of cases, useless function )) Much more main is algorithms + soft + quality lenses

    Sony’s engineers don’t care about 2K. Amoled display is more expensive than LCD, that’s all.

    Yes it’s an opinion alright, a winy one at that. As suggested by ramuk. Ditch xperia and buy other android eom phones.

    Sony will do what they think best for their lineup.

    Xperia X has Fingerprint sensor, X Performance has IP68 certification

  • Omarion07

    Does anyone like zealots of any type??!!

  • Omarion07

    Man this logic is like people who live in a dictatorship say “our government will do what they think is best for their people”! If you don’t criticise Sony mobile how will sony ever learn and improve?! If Sony’s doing everything perfectly why then are they losing customers and bleeding money?!
    These are exactly the characteristics of zealots and fanboys who can’t see the flaws in what they love or believe in (in this case Sony) and think whatever Sony’s doing is perfection!!

  • Omarion07

    If you criticise anything about the camera or any other feature you’re immediately branded stupid!! Dxo mark gave the z5 a perfect score everyone else has to shut up.. despite the majority of websites saying z5 camera is far from great

  • Matt

    yes yes, you mentioned that before , Jesus. . .

  • DarkMaster

    More RAM is ok , but phone with 1080p and 3gb of ram will perform the same as one with 4gb of ram and 1440p so other flagships like G5,S7,HTC 10 don’t have any advantage over Xperia X.

    IR blaster ? you got my support on that.( I don’t use it but a lot people do) hm S6,S7 also ditched IR blaster..

    wireless charging is cool feature but rarely used…anyway I agree that Sony should add it but still not a deal breaker.

    yes AMOLED is crap because of shorter lifespan and bad colors,it has only good black levels but where you have those perfect black levels in real life ? NOWHERE ! AMOLED also produce grey whites and bad red levels.Because of that IPS LCD is still superior !!

    all other things you mentioned are boolshit and gimmicks like OIS because Sony have best stabilization seen in smartphone and not a single phone with OIS is able to match stabilization of Z5 .

    dual camera ?? It’s f#cking ugly and I don’t care is it good or not .

    and like others said if you are not happy with Sony and want those gimmick features then why are you still here ?

  • Matt

    Your logic will be correct if you’re forced to buy only xperias. The thing is we dont live under dictatorship of sony mobile , just buy a HTC and you’re free. clearly if you don’t like sony mobile and xperias why forcing yourself to stay? no enough budget ? you are a customer, you need to get things that fulfill your requirements, be smarter.

    i like my xperia, it is not the most perfect phone not even the newest xperia out there but i love it. does that makes me a fanboy? should i have the best phone created this year? by the same logic you’re just hater who only see bad things :P

    Sony will learn eventually, they will do things to improve their market share, like all companies does.

  • Matt

    well you enjoy your 2k screen , im fine with 1080p :D

  • Shamoy Rahman

    I would buy one in a shot if it were.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    If you can port the lockscreen, yes. Not sure who will do it or how it’ll get done, but usually these kinds of ports are available after release.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    Its possible with newer sensors and tech like in the S7 but we have to wait and see how the X Performance will do. I hope it really brings some big improvements to the table.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    No, Sony uses IPS LCDs now and they will be moving over to OLED in late 2017/early 2018. By then, OLEDs will be cheaper and superior in every way to LCD.

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    Hurmm i hope so.

    Hi. Really do not you get it, as i see.

    No i dont need. I love my z1c too with 720p, but APPS do need.

    I was starting with this at the beginning of this thread.

    If 1080p would be enough for Simcitybuildit, i could go back to z5 as a dailly driver. But now, it goes to sleep.

    There is NOT amoled, but 2k display what would be perfect . What the LGG4 uses.

    Like you are the one to talk. Yeah, Saw what happened to your favorite brand Nokia. LOL, even Nokia’s “Super”/ “Superior” camera and “Smart” fanboy likes you couldn’t save Nokia. What progress did Nokia make despite having such a herd of “Smart” fanboy like you? LOL, They make so much progress that they end up selling their division to Microsoft. LOL, poor Nokia and their pitiful “Smart” fanboy.

  • ramuk

    Did you see the low light image quality of S7/S7 edge in androidauthority’s review? If you haven’t I advise you to take a look. It’s look much worse then Xperia X. The low light photo sample from S7/S7 edge is mediocre at best ( from androidauthority’s review). It’s a sample from Samsung phone so these trolls are not using it to say how bad their camera is but if the same image is labeled as pic taken from Z5 or X these troll would surely say its a shitty sample. I used gsmarena’s camera comparison tools yesterday to determine how bad really is Z5’s camera. As it turns out its not that bad at all. If you scaled they image to 12 mpx they hold up against S7 even in low light. They beat S7 in detail preservation in some area and lose to S7 in some area.

    Selectively comparing the worst pic taken from sony phones to best pic from other phones to make their point. Every camera take bad pic once in a while, the important part is if you can make the best out of it. I think its clear to all that these whining losers are nothing but trolls who use criticism as an excuse to troll here.

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    Well, we should not let them decieve, should we?
    Recombu uploaded these lowlight shots from Xperia X that I linked here…
    People are invited to check this ” mickey mouse” shot this troll reffered to, and check his own posted shots…and see the difference in quality…
    Xperia X midranger demolishes S7 flagshiper in lowlight quality.
    That is the truth that no norris or timel, etc. can dispute in any way. ..

He is a moronic Nokia fanboy who still can’t get over the fact that his beloved Nokia is dead. So he comes here to troll to get over his grieve for Nokia. He intentionally post worst pic of the camera and ignore the rest to simply troll. Z5 series camera’s have weakness it is well documented. But also Z5 series camera’s also have some serious strength that other camera phone lacks it is also well documented. Ignoring the good part and only highlight on the weak part to say that their camera is shit is a trait of a troll. Dumb losers like him who has nothing to do in real life comes here for attention.

    Your English man, it gave me cancer. LoL

    If I’m not mistaken, you implied that apps need 2k display to function correctly. It’s just not.

    No matter how you optimise 2k display it will always take more energy that optimised 1080p panel.

    I stand on my point 1080p is my choise for phone display. Does not at all men that 1080p is the best ever and ever, but 2k is just overkill

    Look at these pics taken in low light and also see how overblown the pic get in bright/high contrast situation. And these is supposed to be the best camera ( S7 and S7 edge) in low light and all lighting situation. These trolls always take the wrost pic of Sony camera then compare it to the best pic taken from other camera. But never ever show how crap pic their supposed best camera can take. If Sony’s Z5 camera is crap for taking those pic the trolls showed here then shouldn’t be S7/S7 edge camera also crap for taking same kind of crap pic? LOL.

    Simply X ser. slightly improved version of the Z series in technically, mistake correction. Visually, Z series IMHO, looked better.
    And why Sony copied this pink gold, like on iphone 6..? Aquagreen was much better.

  • Timel

    Aqua green was so cool but Pink is cool also, i love them both, Sony always genuis at making the classy color

  • Alex Norris

    But they like to call me a troll. They even don’t know that i created my Xperia Z5 group))

  • Timel

    Actually we all are sony fans right? but some blind fans here just always keep defending sony , dancing around the truth , the people like Ramuk for example .

    Here are the image taken by galaxy s7 edge and xperia z5. Tell me now which image taken with s7 edge in a same lighting condition

  • Alex Norris

    You have nothing to do..? You at least would make identical crops.)
    Oh god, they thinks like children..)

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    My question very simple ” which one ” of the image being taken by s7 edge in a same lighting condition. Even it was a diff subject but the lighting were at the same condition. You are not losing virginity if it was a wrong pick. You talking like pro so i believe you can easily pick the right answer.

  • DarkMaster

    it could be bad sales since competition is able to sell a lot more phones with less features and no water resistance even for flagships…so maybe they given up and decided to make phones more affordable not giving any certification since majority of customers aren’t that interested in water resistance.

    to me is very important , I got so used to it to wash my phone of any smudges or dirt every day that now I can’t imagine using phone that isn’t waterproof :(

  • Alex Norris

    Show me identical frames, identical!

  • Alex Norris
  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    So you need an identical subject to see the diff? Wow a very pro lol.. Come on .. how cant you tell which one taken by F1.7 aperture . Should the F1.7 captured more lights vs sony F2.0 . Or you need an identical image to compared which DOF cover more or less the subject to find the answer? Thats child play dude. You talking much shit when you know the brand but not that pro if the brand were vanish from the image.

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    Give the answer which image taken by s7edge cause obviously the F1.7 can collect more lights vs the f2.0 sony. And you need an indentical image for that? An epic pro you re… Lol

  • Alex Norris

    No professional photographer will not answer to such a stupid question like your. Show different crops and like a child ask me to guess iin which hand he has hidden a candy??? No seriosly )

    Ok ramuk you proved to me that you’re just a kid.. I’m not here to destroy or bash anyone nor will i get destroyed by a simple response. My initial comment was simply criticising blinded fanboys who support and follow their favourite brands like a herd of cattle! For the thousand time I love Sony and its my favourite electronics brand. But when i see Sony mobile on the brink of closing down i have to stop and ask myself what’s going wrong.. There are many reasons leading to this but one in particular is that their hardware isn’t on par with the offerings from other manufacturers, and the z5 line up were not very well received by mobile phone websites like gsmarena, phonearena, androidcentral, etc… When phonearena gives the z5 family a 7.5 score (although i know for a fact that z5 deserves more) the majority of your average consumers will hesitate about buying the z5. Therefore, in my opinion constructive criticism will help Sony step up their game and become the best they could be. Over and out.

    Next year, baby. :)

    The only thing I don’t like is the stereo speaker slits like the Xperia Z3 had. When the X Series had the same stereo speakers as the Z5, only then will I consider upgrading.

    Next time, since Z5 had compact.
    Z (no compact)
    Z1 (compact)
    Z2 (no compact)
    Z3 (compact)
    Z4/Z3+ (no compact)
    Z5 (compact)
    X (no compact)

  • Victor

    Tror det beror på att de inte vill konkurrera med alla andra som släpper sina på våren.

    —————————————-

    I think it is because they do not want to compete with all the others who release their flagship in spring

  • Victor

    Well the Z2 was ahead of time. Even the Galaxy s5 didn’t have 3gb ram.

  • XperiaBlog

    We don’t like to get involved in the comments, as we assume most people here are grown up enough to have a sensible conversation. This is a polite reminder to keep things civil and be respectful to one another. Feel free to post your opinions (good or bad), but no trolling – have some sound reasons for your arguments. Hopefully, these simple reminders will encourage a healthy discussion.

  • Ambitious Man

    agree. i think next year

  • ramuk

    I think most people here have no problem with constructive criticism. Everyone can agree that constructive criticism is good for healthy conversation. Everyone here criticize Sony when they feel like they are doing something wrong ( that’s include me). Criticism is great for the sony fan community here.

    But If certain individual post same message (99.98% of the time post negative comment) again and again regardless of the topic of the articles shouldn’t that person be considered as a troll/spammer? I know for a fact that xperiablog’s moderators are generally very lenient but sometimes I feel like they are too forgiving. Trolls take advantage of xperiablog’s moderator’s lenient nature to spam and troll here. No other tech blog allowed these kind of behavior. Even Phonearena which is famous for it’s poor quality of comment section frequently bring banned hammer upon people who repeatedly post the same kind of negative message again and again. Other well known tech sites like androidcentral, androidpolice, pocketnow have even strict rules of comment. They don’t tolerate trolls/spammers at all. All I’m asking is to please do not let these well know trolls/spammers ( I’m sure you know who I’m talking about) here to roam freely.

  • DarkMaster

    sorry but I have to correct you since Z had compact version and it’s called Xperia ZR : http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=5204&idPhone2=5421

    and I think Z2 also had compact version but it was something for Japan only and model name was Xperia A2

  • Nafnaf84

    Yes and always presented at the IFA (at least for Z3 and Z5 Compact)…

    But X is a new range and I so would like a Compact mid-range so it’s a personal wish… ;)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Maybe, but that might be a stupid thing to do because many customers might already have bought new flagship phones from the other manufacturers like LG, HTC, Huawei, Samsung etc :p

  • ramuk

    Let’s jump to real talk and try to keep it up OK

    First, You need to get rid of the idea that Sony mobile is dying. Sony mobile is doing better than ever. Last quarter they make more money than they did from last couple of years. You don’t believe me. Just look at the actual Q4 2015 report from Sony. The overall sells of the handset is down ( meaning the revenue is down) but the operating income is significantly up ( 133.2% up from Q4 2014 actually). And the operating income in Q4 2015 is $201 million. Only Apple and Samsung made more money from their respective mobile division than Sony last quarter. I bet you didn’t know this because all you read was some biased media report which implies that their mobile is dying. If you are true Sony fan then you would do the actual research instead of believing biased media report. Nothing says Sony mobile is not dying when they actually open a new facilities for mobile in Thailand.

    Second, Now that I establish that Sony mobile is not dying let’s move on to the role of the tech blog. The main reasons the sells of the Sony mobile is low comes down to 4 key factors
    1) Market saturation
    2) Invasion of cheap Chinese phones
    2) Seriously Poor advertisement from Sony mobile
    3) Worst kind of distribution around the world
    While the bigger tech specification and positive review from the tech world helps the sells it does not guarantee the overall success of the sells. How many people do you actually think read the tech blog? The tech blog reader number is less than 10% of general consumers. If the tech blog’s review really had the significant influence in the general consumers like you implied then HTC One M7, M8 and Sony Xperia Z2/Z3 would have outsells Samsung S4/S5 by a large number. But that didn’t happen did it? So you see your general consumer don’t really care about what your tech blog says about their mobile. The same kind of logic applied to Movie reviewers. General public don’t care about movie reviewers.Tech blog’s review are for tech geek who get easily influenced by their opinion. And talking about tech blog it is also well known that lots of tech blog sites post unbelievably biased and flowed review just to please their sponsor ( Samsung and LG ). If you care about the opinion of Phonearena then I will say nothing to say but know for sure I’ll continue to pity you.

    Third, Now let’s move to the role of fanboys. From your recent comments here on XB from various articles it is pretty safe to assume that you mostly blame the so called “blind” Sony fanboy here for the dying/misery of Sony mobile. Again I have to say that’s a very simple minded conception from your part. The role of the fanboy is both to defend the brand if anyone criticize or trolled the brand with flawed logic and also to criticize the brand if they saw the step they are taking is harming the customers and failed to improve their overall quality of the products. Do you think constantly bashing and making ignorant biased negative comment makes a person a True Fan? From that logic Trolls are then the best fan despite constantly posting negative comments again and again without acknowledging the good part of the brand/phone. A true fan both criticize and defend the brand they don’t just keep bashing the brand in each and every comment section regardless of the topic of the article.

    Forth, Now let’s talk about your behavior here and your “Contractive criticism” against Sony and their “Blind fanboy that behave like a herd of cattle”. With your initial post you are not just criticizing people for their defensive proclivity of your flawed argument. Your initial post is a derogatory, insulting and offensive comment designed to make people react in the negative way. There is a proper way to criticize people and there is a way to insult people. You choose to do the second thing instead of doing the first. When I replied to your post using the same logic you used in your initial post why didn’t you stick to the arguments using logic. Why did you use the derogatory words like “Calm your tits” instead of a proper response, huh? Do you think people who use constructive criticism resort to use the word like “Calm your tits”, “Blind fanboy who behave like a herd of cattle”, ” Sony zealot” etc? You can hardly make a comment without insulting other people or use derogatory words. You can’t even reply if you lost to a argument. I’m still waiting to see how you response to Matt’s reply in which Matt’s totally destroyed your flawed logic. And again let’s see how you response to my post and it’s logic using your constructive criticism ( and your logic).

    Yeah. I have a Z1 picked up and but don’t use it. The other day my friend who has a Z3 washed his phone after somehow he managed to get bird shit on it. It was funny to watch it.
