3 things we like about the Sony Xperia X (and 3 we don’t)

We recently published an unboxing and first impressions video on Sony’s newest handset. The Xperia X is already proving to be a divisive handset reading through our viewer and subscriber comments. We can all appreciate a “back to basics” approach, and a company streamlining its product offerings is a great way to get back on track, but many have been critical regarding some of the compromises made here.

While wrapping up our full review of this phone, we took a minute (ok we took three minutes, including our funny little video end tag) to share some early thoughts on what we liked so far, and balanced that against some areas where we feel Sony could stand to improve. The Xperia X asks of us a little more nuance in how we might talk about a phone, and the bullet point specs on paper don’t completely illustrate what this device is like when used in real world situations.

So sit back, relax, and let’s have a chat about personal preferences and perspectives. Don’t worry, this one won’t take up much of your time. Here’s 3 things we like about the Sony Xperia X, and 3 things we don’t.
