Re: Why not in the UK?

Which region are you in?
In some regions they are releasing X & XA for those countries but not X performance.

So I just learned that around 5 countries in Europe will get the X Performance: France, Italy, Netherland, Sweden, and Spain. :/

Re: Why not in the UK?

This is really annoying! 

Pretty much kept up to date where I could and where there was a step up since the early Xperia. I wanted to upgrade to 800 series processor for its apparent high performance but more importantly its low power consumption. Using Z5 Premium at the moment and since latest updates to Marshmallow have been very disappointed with battery drain (new update yesterday might help but can't find info on what the actual update was). Just don't believe moving from this to the X standard is an upgrade (apart from better front facing camera,  whoopty do) so will give it a miss, or upgrade else where.

And just realised no waterproof rating. This was another good reason to stick with Sony. Not any more, and as they step away from this others are moving in. Geez. Not that I went swimming with it but was nice to know it was safe!

 

Sorry for rant.

Re: Why not in the UK?

When are we likely to know for sure if the X Performance is coming to the UK or not? Want to decide whether to wait or get a Z5 premium

A bad managment and sales decision for not selling the high spec'd Flagship X Performance everywhere.

Re: Why not in the UK?

I guess that given Sony's history of losses in the smartphone business, this time they decided to stick to a certain minimum price to operators and the operators in some countries have told Sony "no thanks".
