After being presented at the Mobile World Congress 2016, the Xperia X Performance has collected mixed reviews from fans, who have praised the incredible performance in the field of video games and the sharpness of the screen, but have been disappointed by the lack of battery life and lack of video in 4K format.

After this important discovery about the quality of Sony sensors, some rivals like Apple are forced to take this into account: the score of the iPhone 6S Plus is 84 in the DxOMark ranking, and soon, in the fall, will present a new smartphone and may try to change the current standings.
Looking in detail the qualifications of photographs and video mode, the biggest advantage of Sony Xperia X Performance over the previous Sony Xperia Z5 is the quality of the video.
