The Sony brand has come to represent multi-media prowess from an entertainment juggernaut of a company. This year sees Sony offering phones that are a bit more modest, though maintaining premium price points. Why might a consumer be inclined to spend more on a phone? Camera performance is certainly one aspect which still sets high end phones apart from more budget friendly options.

Based on the specs we should expect a solid photography and video solution here. Sony makes the actual camera sensors which are built into numerous competing phones. For the X Performance, they’ve included a 1/2.3″ 23MP monster, paired with a 24mm equivalent lens and an f/2.0 aperture.

However a camera is more than just the sensor which captures light. How does this lens perform? Does the X Performance thermal throttle as aggressively as the Xperia X? Has Sony improved on the software which powers this set up? Can a premium phone compete in this market when its camera can only produce 1080p video?

We have a lot of questions to answer here, and we’re going to dig deep into the Xperia X Performance to see if it can live up to the multi-media reputation of the Sony brand.
