Hey everybody, unfortunaly two days ago my Xperia Z3's screen cracked and left the touchscreen unresponsive except for a tiny fraction. (One postive is that I could still open the Xperia Care app but once I got to the homescreen, I couldn't choose 'Support Forum".) :smileysmileywink: I am now looking to upgrade and since I am a big fan of Sony's Xperia lineup and also because this Support Forum is incredibly awesome, (Seriously, the response times and knowlege that you guys have is amazing!) I was wondering if I should upgrade to the X Performance? I would upgrade to the XZ but it isn't available in my country. If anyone has any advice or/and has the phone, please feel free to respond. Thanks!

I'm sorry to hear about your Z3
Obviously, I may be a little bias here haha, but I use the X Performance as my main phone. I do all the standard stuff, but I also play a lot of phone games. I've had no issues with it yet. I personally would recommend it.
That said, having used the XZ, it definitely is the superior device. It's a shame it's not available to you.

As you can imagine, for my job I am on the phone constantly, testing things and such. If I don't charge it throughout the day it will last me until I get home, but will need a charge by then.

I'll take that as the battery being pretty good. I have another question if you don't mind answering. The Z3's speakers were really clear when playing music but they didn't get very loud. Is the X Performance's speakers about the same, worse, or better on volume output?

If you're okay to wait 1 month to fix this annoying bug, I would recommend update. Otherwise Google Pixel probably might be a good choice.

I would recommend XPERIA XZ wich I bought from UK because it was cheaper and no extra tax because Croatia is in EU. So if you are in EU you could by XZ in other EU country.
If you are not able to buy XZ, XPERIA X Performance is good phone. I had XPERIA X Performance. For better battery I swiched to WCDMA/GSM because 4G drained my battery more. Anyway battery is the weakest point of X Performance although with WCDMA/GSM it was better. It could last me through day from morning (7 a.m.) to evening (10 p.m.) with 20% to 40% of battery in the evening. Mostly 30% battery. I had lot of calls, emails, viber, news, updates from google play, google+. So you will get 1 day without 4G.
