In addition to Sony’s Xperia Z series of phones, Xperia C and Xperia M are no longer going to be produced by the Japanese tech giant. The company is now going to put all of its attention on its Xperia X family, and we have to say that it is one of the best decisions taken by the company.

More phones being produced generally mean higher costs for the company. With the announcement of Xperia X series of smartphones, Sony caters to all segments of the phone market thanks to the following chipsets present inside each phone.

  • Xperia X Performance: Snapdragon 820
  • Xperia X: Snapdragon 650
  • Xperia XA: Helio P10 or MT6755

The hardware specifications of paper are quite impression, and we believe that Sony should stick to releasing a limited number of phones for an entire 12 month period so that they can further improve the experience for users. While we are on the subject of Xperia X, the company’s Snapdragon 820 powered flagship, Xperia X Performance can provide storage up to 200GB via a MicroSD slot, so if you have no grave concerns investing in a high-performance MicroSD card later down the road, we do not believe that there is going to be such an issue.

All three handsets from Sony are available in the following colors:

  • White
  • Graphite Black
  • Lime Gold
  • Rose Gold

Xperia X sports a Snapdragon 650 SoC and a 5-inch IPS LCD display with a 1080p resolution. The chipset might not be able to stand up to the likes of Snapdragon 820 present in Xperia X Performance, but in the mid-ranged chipset shootout, Snapdragon 650 will definitely make its mark known. On the other hand, Xperia X Performance has a 23MP sensor with an F/2.0 aperture.

It might not be the widest aperture to find in smartphones, but it is definitely acceptable in removing the background from the focused object. We could argue that the 23MP shooter will take detailed photos during the daytime, but could suffer in low-light thanks to high megapixel count. The front camera will definitely make your selfies come to life thanks to a 13MP shooter. The front sensor has the same aperture, just in case you were wondering. All three phones have something to offer for each segment of the smartphone market, but it is always hard letting go of things that you have known for the longest time.
