Review of the product design of the Xperia X Premium

 

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Xperia X Premium by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

The size of the buttons on the App

The buttons displayed on the Xperia X Premium are large, and therefore it is difficult to press the wrong ones. While some buttons may look small depending on the app, you probably won't feel that stressed when you actually use it.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Xperia X Premium is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

Because the display of the Xperia X Premium is much larger than ordinary phones, characters are displayed quite large. Therefore, it is suitable for reading long bodies of text and exchanging long messages while doing research.

Ease of reading sentences

Since the Xperia X Premium displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The screen of the Xperia X Premium can display pictures and videos quite vividly. This makes it great for enjoying videos and games dynamically. It has a very beautiful screen.

Ease of writing sentences

For the Xperia X Premium, the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

Whether it be a phone call, mail, or during a chat, the Xperia X Premium provides smooth performance. Even when using the phone in demanding situations, you can use the phone comfortably since there will usually be no lag.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

It is more than adequate for applications such as using social media—like Facebook and Instagram—and searching the Internet. Sometimes, though, it may feel a bit slow.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

Even if you start multiple apps at the same time or switch between apps frequently, you will have smooth performance. It can be said that the performance is more than enough if you just do research and SNS.

 

Summary of Xperia X Premium performance and functions

The size and weight of the Xperia X Premium

Its size is large compared to normal smart phones. While it may be slightly difficult to use with one hand, the screen is large and easy to see. I think this is a nice balance. It is recommended for those who want large screens instead of operating with one hand.

The battery life of the Xperia X Premium

The processing capability of the Xperia X Premium

The Xperia X Premium uses the Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 CPU with 2.15GHz+1.6GHz×4(Quad core). The memory capacity is 3GB. CPU performance is slightly lower than standard smartphones. While it is perfectly suitable for searching the web and sending messages, people who use their smartphone for more demanding purposes will likely feel that its performance is subpar. In addition, it has slightly more memory, which is more than adequate for general use. Most games can probably be comfortably enjoyed. Although I feel it may be slightly inadequate for 3D games, overall, there is no problem.

The camera of the Xperia X Premium

The Xperia X Premium has a back camera with 23 MP. The front camera has 13 MP. Compared to standard smart phones, its rear camera has quite high performance. It is great for scenery photography and such as it is able to take photos of quite high resolutions. While great for taking photos of things far away, I feel it may be lacking when photographing near objects. In addition, compared to standard smart phones, its rear camera has quite high performance.
