    The Sony X Performance outperforms the Samsung Galaxy S7…

    In terms of the Processor Sony will be using the SnapDragon 820 on a 14nm scale not a 16 like Samsung where it over heats. Sony will also ad 3-4GB of RAM to the device and it will support expandable memory up to 200GB. The camera it self will be a 23MP Camera with a 2.0 AP. Which again outperforms the Samsung Galaxy S7 again. Yes, Samsung has added some additional tools for the Camera however Sony is known for making camera’s etc… S7 was not released with a 4000mah battery. However, sony will be adding a 3600mah battery.

    Almost in all aspects Sony has outperformed the Samsung Galaxy S7. So in my books. especially this day in age most devices should have atleast 20mp camera. I honestly do not care for a AMOLED screen. As long as it supports 4K UHD content that is all that matters.
