Is the Sony Xperia X still worth buying new?

So I'm in the market to spend about $275 on a phone. Im thinking about buying the Sony Xperia X which runs off a 650 processor which in the past I've found to be a pretty good and fast processor. Is this phone still worth my money?  I can get one right now brand new for $229 which I thought wasn't a bad deal at all. What do you guys think I should buy with $275 in hand best phone out there at that price range. Nothing above that. Also I don't like buying used phones as I just got burned today on a used like new in box Sony Xperia X Performance which it looked like new in box until I turned it on and saw the bottom part of the screen having discoloration in which I returned it. Plus when I buy a phone I like for it to have boxes and contents. What phone would you guys recommend at around $275?  Thanks a bunch!

By the way I had just bought a Sony Xperia X Performance off swappa and the guy tried to take me which is why I've always tried to stay away from used phones because people are ruthless. I then buy his phone thinking I got a like new in box Xpreria X Performance which indeed it was but until I turned the phone on and saw the bottom part of the screen. I guess he thought I wouldn't notice and then goes as far to claim.it happened during shipment. I mean check this screen out!!  IMG_20171019_115606.jpg

 

 

So I'm in the market for anothet phone. Should I try used again for just buy a new Xperia X model brand new sealed in box so I don't have to worry about this type of stuff happening. I mean how could he have not known. Sudh a lie.

Just don't buy this phone. Battery life is totally terrible it comes from 9am to 4.30 pm exactly. Just imagine how I feel while working or on a business call. Buy something good. This phone is now outdated. Buy a latest model atleast you'll get support for 2 years for sure.
