    Seems like sony doesnt wanna sell phones nw
    49k for these specs
    Its bit similar to iphone n blackberry
    Ie over priced phone
    In 49k a person can get a flagship phone with high specs like Qhd display n better processors
    Sony soon u would end up like blackberry U0001f602U0001f602U0001f602

  • AmitRana

    This is not right it will have SD 820

  • Govardhan CoreLogic Mane

    Sony tickd all the wrong boxes on this one.

  • Ramki Jr.

    If there is ever a company to go down 1st it would be htc.. It is really difficult for HTC to hold on to smartphone market than Sony. So all is not over for both. There are still few who value brand and are ready to spend for it.. Smartphone market has changed a lot though..

  • Ayush Kothari

    Poor Sony….
    Today’s market is very competitive. People don’t understand quality or technology but just see specs and numbers on paper.Ex – a cheap Redmi note 3….
    Sony will soon be finished.

  • Ayush Chawla

    Is it just me or some1 else too thinks redmi note 3 is much better specced than this piece of crap worth 49k ? :o

  • Ramki Jr.

    720P is OK.. While some phones claiming 1080p are actually don’t look great.. Sony’s display is good and this one is edge to edge display so aesthetically pleasing.. Remaining features are good..

  • Sudeep Sharma

    Time to pack the bags for sony…:p

  • Sudeep Sharma

    Really? 21 k for a 720 p display?

  • Hansen A James

    Another dead on arrival phones

  • Avilash Paul

  • Thomas Sumanth

  • Avanish Kumar

  • Pratik Sanghvi

    Sony is next blackberry U0001f602U0001f602U0001f602

  • Ramki Jr.

    Xperia x isn’t a flagship.. OMG what’s wrong with Sony? Asking too much for a mid range snapdragon 650.. XA price is acceptable..

  • SandeepPandey

    Sony is doomed, look at the specs and the price. Seems like product development and pricing is taking place on another planet without any reference to the competition on earth. Huh

  • Vinay Gupta

    What a waste of time.. U0001f620

  • Tarun
