  • Awesome screen

    The Xperia X’s 5-inch Full HD display has Sony’s TRILUMINOS technology built in.

  • Fingerprint sensor

    The sensor is on the side of the phone meaning you can pick it up and unlock in one fluid movement.

  • Best camera yet

    The high quality 23MP camera houses Sony’s new predictive hybrid autofocus technology, so you can always capture the action.

  • Metal and glass design

    The 5-inch display is the perfect size to hold in the palm, and the curved glass edges of the display make the X one of Sony’s most ergonomic handsets ever.

Design and display

Bigger not always better

The classic Sony design is back, but with a few little tweaks. Now with an even more minimalist build, which is highlighted by soft curved glass and a slightly smaller display than the Z5. 


Fronting the Xperia X is a 5-inch Full HD display with Sony’s quality TRILUMINOS technology built in. Colours are bright and deep, providing a joyful and immersive viewing experience. 


The best yet

Sony is continuing to build on the already impressive 23MP count. New predictive hybrid autofocus technology means that your camera will automatically track whatever you tell it to focus on – even if it’s a moving object - so you’ll never have a blurry shot again.   

The best selfies

You shouldn’t have to compromise when it comes to photo quality. And a 13MP front-facing camera will make sure you’ll never have to again.  

Under the hood

All day. All night

Inside the Xperia X is a big and powerful 2,620mAh battery that’ll comfortably keep you going all day. If that’s not enough, quick-charging capabilities are on board too, meaning you can charge up in a flash.   

Under the hood

Running the show is a dual-core and quad-core processor combination, taking care of all your multitasking needs. 


Fingerprint sensor

The power button has a fingerprint sensor embedded within it, allowing you to save up eight prints for that extra level of security. Once set up, you simply have to rest your thumb or finger on the button to unlock the handset.  

Brand new user interface

Alongside Google’s current operating system, Android Marshmallow, Sony’s new UI has seen over 200 updates, making for a fresh look and feel to the Xperia range.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Phone died Have had this phone since august and have had no problem with it till tonight was on Facebook and the phone froze and the screen has died. Now can't use it. It's a shame as is a good phone. I will be going in to carphone warehouse tomorrow to get this fixed. So glad i kept my trusty iPhone 4 as a back up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2 Faulty Sony Xperia X I bought this phone a couple of weeks ago. The proccessor is really slow. It already feels really warm. The previous phone had a problem in lots of applications, wifi (didn't detect), camera wouldn't take photos, and it would keep freezing. I got a replacement today, charged it and it's now been on the Xperia loading page for over an hour. I have had a sony, in the past and was extremely impressed by the camera, processor. It was ashame, it lasted me 2 and 1/2 years. Started to over heat and the battery was temperamental. I can't say I have any reason to recommend this to anyone at the moment. I'd like a refund.
