@hexdros87 

It seems a marketing choice to keep their new offspring on the shelf. Let's hope that they will make up their mind in the future.

 

They ditched all they things that differentiate their offer from other producers: it's a strange and bad move.

Re: No Fm radio?

It's a hardware limitation? or if I install the XA's FM radio app it will work?

 

It defines my new cell, NO S7 and maybe NO X Performance... shame.

Re: No Fm radio?

In USA's S7 the fm radio has been reactivated with a patch.

Il you take a look on Snapdragon 820 chipset's diagram FM radio chip is present, so it isn't an hardware limitation.

Maybe is a Sony's try to drive su toward streaming, just like Apple does.

 

It's an awful choice which will drive me away from Sony too.

It's on the X, has anyone actually confirmed it's not on Xp?

Hardware limitation or blocked FM APP?

Hi, I'm planning to buy an X or XP model, but if the Performance doesn't have FM Radio (traditional) app, I won't.

 

Is it possible to add the traditional FM app on the Xperia Performance?

 

Anyone has tried?

Dumb choice indeed. They will lose all costumer used to buy from Sony because all those additional futures compared to other brands.

Maybe they are trying to ditch their jobs.

I think what Sony Is trying to do is to just make this phone have news around. And wants to gain attention as their phone side in Sony is dropping in sales
