Sony Xperia XA
Sony Xperia XA is aiming at the low-end market. However, its resolution is not that bad as a low-end smartphone. It has got a 5-inch screen with 720*1280 display resolution with the MediaTek MT6755. And the display of this device nearly reaches edge-to-edge. Like Xperia X Performance and Xperia X, it supports microSD support and has 4 colors (White, Graphite Black, Lime Gold and Rose exterior finishes) for option.
With 2GB of RAM and a 2300mAh battery which has achieved 2-day battery life with Sony's Stamina Mode software, is sufficient for daily use. It's the lightest in Xperia X series phone models, 137.4g while X Performance is 164.4g and Xperia X is 153g. However, it is a pity that Xperia XA won't support optional storage plan and Sony users can only have 16GB on their Sony Xperia XA.
Sony Xperia X
Sony Xperia X, which aims at the middle-end market, is equipped with a TRILUMINOS display as well as a Dynamic Contrast Enhancement built in. The Snapdragon 650 processor with 3GB of RAM makes Sony Xperia X performs better than Xperia XA. On Xperia X, there are 32GB and 64GB storage for you to choose and you can expand it to 200GB.
It's well-known that Sony is very good at taking HD photos. It doesn't disappoint us on Sony Xperia X: The photos are clear and color is saturate with the 23MP rear camera. Besides, there are many technologies built-in on your Sony smartphone, such as Predictive Hybrid AF feature (to keep objects focused) and SteadyShot (the anti-shake tech). And the front camera which has 13MP is also good at capturing selfies for you.
Sony Xperia X Performance
Aiming at high-end smartphone market, Sony Xperia X Performance is a fully 4G LTE capable device. It's the heaviest one among the latest Xperia X series because it has an aluminum body with rounded edges and the metallic back panel.
Sony Xperia X Performance also has a 23MP rear camera and 13MP front camera as that on Xperia X. There's a physical camera key on the right as usual. With a soft press on the keep, you can focus on the object and with a harder press, it takes a shot. With the predictive auto-focus, you can capture moving objects without a sign of blur.
Though these three upcoming smartphones have many things in common, such as operating system (All runs Android Marshmallow), screen size (5 inch), and more, there are many differences between them. I hope that you can get your answer in your mind after reading these features comparison post about Sony Xperia X Performance, Xperia X and Xperia XA.
