I have been using the Sony Xperia X Performance, Sony’s current flagship phone for several days now. Its design is similar to the Xperia Z series as you can see from the photos. My thanks to Clove Technology .
As this is Sony’s flagship phone it comes with a decent selection of specs as follows –
– 64 bit quad-core processor – Qualcomm Snapdragon 820
– 3Gb RAM
– Android 6.0.1
– 23MP rear camera with Predictive Hybrid Autofocus – Lossless 5x Clear Zoom and <0.1 second autofocus
– Low-light photography: ISO 12800/3200, SteadyShot with Intelligent Active Mode – video stabilisation, Superior Auto Mode, Full HD 1080p Video Recording, Pulse LED Flash
– 5.0″ Inch 1080 x 1920p Full HD display
– LTE Cat 9 support
– 32GB storage & micro SD support up to 200GB
– Sony 3D Surround Sound technology (VPT), Clear Audio – Sound improvement software, xLoud™ Experience, DSEE HX, High-res audio
– Fingerprint sensor
– PS4 Remote Play
Within the specs above are some bold claims about the camera and its audio system. I will cover both of these areas off in a lot more detail in my full review coming soon.
In the meantime, have a look at the below camera samples from the Sony Xperia X Performance. All shot in superior auto at 8mp unless stated otherwise.
This shot is to highlight an indoor lighting situation. The glass in the door is quite a bit overexposed.
Above is a close up of another green plant leaves.
From the same plant, but with different sunlight and shadows.
A local church. I wasn’t too happy with this overall shot as it is not quite in focus.
The above shot in Newquay beach.
Slightly better shot of the church.
The above shot is in manual mode, using HDR. 8mp.
The above shot is another 8mp manual mode, without HDR. HDR in manual mode has to be switched on.
And the last photo, manual mode, no HDR but at the full 23mp.
Overall, I thought the shots were okay but nothing spectacular. What do you think?
Just to throw in a comparison photo using the Samsung Galaxy S7 , see below.
My thanks again to Clove Technology for their great service.
