Last June 14, Sony launched its two newest smartphones here in the Philippines, the Sony Xperia X and Sony Xperia XA.

The first units in the brand new Xperia X line, these two smartphones are equipped with next-generation technology, improving on its predecessor's camera, battery, and design.


Fashioned with a seamless metal back and curved glass edges, the Xperia X has a 5-inch display, which fit like a glove on our hands. On the power button it has a fingerprint sensor which provides access to the user.

Incorporating Sony’s impressive smart battery management, the Sony Xperia X can last up to two days and when added with Quick Charge technology, a 10-minute charge can last up to 5.5 hours of usage.

Also, through its distinct Qnovo Adaptive Charging (QAC) feature, the Xperia X delivers up to two times the usual battery lifespan.

Boasting the world’s best autofocus on a moving object, Xperia X’s camera boasts of a Predictive Hybrid Focus feature which can track a moving object and then cleverly predict its movement to take clear and blur-free shots.

It has a 23-megapixel rear camera that also features the SteadyShot video stabilization feature that lets its user record smooth videos and minimizes effectively camera shaking during shooting. For taking those selfies, it has a 13-megapixel camera that performs well in low-light conditions as it can reach up to 6400 ISO.

Another impressive feature about Xperia X’s camera is the Quick Launch Startup feature. From standby mode, the camera can boot up in less than 0.6 seconds to capture a photo. This feature is a definite must-have for those “blink-and-you’ll-miss” moments.

The Xperia X uses Google Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) as its operating system and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 Processor as its processor. It also has dual sim feature.

Similar to the Xperia X, the XA’s battery can last up to two days from a single charge. It also has the QAC feature, which gives the battery up to two times the usual battery lifespan.

The XA has a 13-megapixel rear camera that also has hybrid autofocus and super-fast quick launch. For selfies, the XA has an 8-megapixel front camera which can reach up to 3200 ISO.
