Our Sony Xperia X Review

Pay monthly or PAYG? 

Due to the Xperia X being one of the newest Sony handsets, it’s recommended that users go for a pay monthly contract when buying. This is down to the amount of online features such as advanced 4G that many providers offer, making it potentially troublesome on PAYG. As well as this, users also have the option of buying the phone with a SIM Only contract, but with the phone averaging around £459 at retail, this option could be expensive in the short term. 


The display on offer with the Sony Xperia X gives you a perfect view on whatever you use your phone for. The Full HD screen might not be as pixel-dense as other phones on the market, but the technology found here gives the phone brighter and more clear colours than you’ve ever seen on a smartphone. Sony uses the same technology in its phones as it does with its BRAVIA TVs, giving the Xperia X a fully premium feel. The display is also ideal for viewing your favourite content. Photos, videos and movies are made to look perfect at any angle and with any light conditions, meaning you don’t have to compromise when using your phone outside or on the go. 


The Xperia X’s camera gives a new meaning to quality photos on a smartphone. With a massive 23 megapixels on offer, users can take some of the best shots you’ll find on a smartphone, making you the envy of you friends when you share them on your favourite social media sites. As well as a huge amount of power on display, the camera also gives you massive stability and speed when shooting. The camera can go from standby to capture in just 0.6 seconds and the ultra-fast auto focus allows you to capture moments as they are happening in perfect clarity. Plus, the 13MP front-facing camera also gives your selfies and group photos more life. If you’re someone who takes a lot of photos on the go or just love sharing your favourite moments, the Xperia X is the true photo fan’s phone. 


The design featured with the Xperia X makes for a truly modern and carefully thought out smartphone. With a seamless metal back and the curved glass edges of the display, the phone is really a looker, as well as being ergonomic enough to easily hold in the hand or keep in the pocket. The design has also been crafted to be as intuitive as ever, breaking the boundaries between handset and display. Depending on what colour you choose, whether it be Graphite Black, Lime Gold, White or Rose Gold, you’ll get a lock screen that matches the colour exactly, giving a consistent design throughout the phone. Usability is also at an all-time high, with the fingerprint sensor and power button on the side of the phone, meaning you can unlock it whilst picking it up in one simple movement. The Xperia X fits perfectly in any environment as well as your hand. 


With a Qualcomm Snapdragon, 64-bit processor, the Xperia X is both fast and powerful enough to deal with any sort of use. The phone has a CPU which is 100% faster than its predecessors, giving you 40% faster framerates when web browsing, streaming content online and gaming. When connecting online, Xperia X also has the advantage providing downloads that are 50% faster than previous models and offering streaming, browsing and uploading completely glitch-free. The Xperia X runs on the Marshmallow version of Android, meaning users will get the newest and smoothest version. Android allows you to fully customise your phone and add more memory, giving you unlimited options when packing your phone with the latest apps, games and your own photos. 

What’s it like for social media?

Xperia X users will have access to all the major social media apps via Android’s Google Play Store. This includes sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. Using these apps on the Xperia X gives you a better experience overall. The high quality screen allows all web browsing to shine, giving you a crystal clear view on chats, articles and feeds. The superfast processor also gives you unprecedented speed when browsing, allowing you to never miss an important moment. Sharing photos is another important part of social media, and the 23MP camera on the Xperia X makes your photos more shareable than ever. Snapchat fans can also make use of the 13MP front-facing camera to make their selfie shots the best among their friends. 

What’s it like for games and apps?

The Google Play Store offers thousands of apps that cover a wide variety of needs and interests. Mobile gamers will have everything you could want directly at their fingertips, with a massive amount of games on offer. Whether it’s simple puzzlers or graphically intensive action games, the Xperia X can handle everything you want to run due to its impressive processing power. Beyond gaming, the Xperia X also allows you to experience the best of what the Play Store has to offer, whether it be running apps, calorie trackers, reminder apps or e-readers. No matter what your interests are, there’s something for you on the Google Play Store, made even better with the power of the Xperia X. 

What We Think

The Sony Xperia X takes the Xperia brand and thrusts it into the future with a technologically capable and stylish smartphone. Users can enjoy superfast processing power, a bright, colourful Full HD screen and one of the best cameras ever seen on a smartphone.
