Sony Xperia X Compact
After a short pre-order period, Sony's new 4.6-inch Xperia handset is ready to ship, its unlocked version carrying a price tag of $499.99 USD.

Sony Xperia X Compact was announced back at IFA 2016 and now, after a brief pre-order period, this handset is finally ready to ship. This 4.6-inch mid-ranger surfaced on Amazon last week, and now those interested can purchase it without having to wait for it to become available.

The Xperia X Compact is quite expensive for its specs and features - Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC, 3 GB of memory, 32 GB internal storage space, but only 1,280X720 pixels in a 4.6-inch display. However, the 5 MP front camera is accompanied by a top-of-the-line 23 MP sensor on the back. For now, it looks like it ships with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, although Nougat has been around for a while.

Amazon provides free one-day shipping to its Prime users, but the $499.99 USD price tag makes the Xperia X Compact quite hard to sell, considering the extremely tough competition in the upper area of the mid-range market.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
