Sony Xperia X Performance

The X Performance is the turbo-charged version of the Xperia X. Sony has packed more processing power into the Performance, along with speedier LTE 4G connectivity and a slightly bigger battery. Other than that, the two phones are almost identical, from the 5-inch full HD screen to the 23-megapixel camera on the rear. But trust me, the differences are very noticeable.

Sony Xperia X Performance smartphone was launched in February 2016. The phone comes with a 5.00-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels

The Sony Xperia X Performance is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and it comes with 3GB of RAM. The phone packs 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 2000GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Sony Xperia X Performance packs a 23-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 13-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

The Sony Xperia X Performance runs Android 6.0 and is powered by a 2700mAh non removable battery. It measures 143.70 x 70.40 x 8.70 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 164.40 grams.

The Sony Xperia X Performance is a single SIM (GSM) smartphone that accepts a Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, 4G. Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope.

Sony’s putting the Xperia X Performance head-to-head with some very serious Android flagships, and while the smartphone might be a decently solid model on its own, it just can’t hold a candle to some of those exceptionally well done, really polished entries from other manufacturers.
