Amazon has once again slashed prices on the Sony Xperia range, which has made the phones even more attractive.
Over the past one week, several Sony phones – primarily the Sony Xperia X – have seen a wide range of price cuts. After having recently dropped below the $400 figure, it was seen as the final price drop for the Xperia X. The phone was available for $389 from several retailers only a few days ago. The price of this device has now dropped to an astonishing $350 from Amazon. This time around, the Sony Xperia X is not the only device to receive price cuts as the Sony Xperia X Performance and Sony Xperia XA also join the list.
At just $199, the Sony Xperia XA is the cheapest of the bunch. The North America is one of the few regions in the world where mid-range Sony devices are going to be available from here on. The company has made it a priority to concentrate only on the higher end models in many markets across the world. Branded as one of the high-end devices from the company, the Sony Xperia X Performance now comes in at $499.
Even though the design cues of the Sony Xperia X Performance may be similar to the already seen Xperia smartphones, it comes with a large number of improvements in every area to provide a complete package especially at this price. There is a 5 inch 1080p display which offers all the elements of a Sony product like Triluminos technology and X-Reality Engine. Even though the screen may lack 4K resolution, Sony has proven to be capable of 4K display panels on the smartphone. It is only that the 5-inch screen does not require such high resolution, as it would severely compromise battery life.
Over the years, Sony may have silently gone down on the two-day battery life promotions and it seems to be the case with the Sony Xperia X Performance. It 2700 mAh battery is a cause of concern on such a large phone with a snapdragon 820 processor, but the presence of fast charging feature comes to save the phones skin. The Sony Xperia X Performance is available in four colors – lime gold, rose gold, black, and white – in all markets across the world. The Sony Xperia X Performance is one of the first products from Sony to feature a fingerprint sensor, but it is already one of the fastest in the business.
