    Lol, true but as @Vineet Sharma said no one is shooting 4k I guess. Atleast not me.

    X is currently available for 22k in Flipkart. Don't know if it's overpriced as for with it offers.

    I guess i'll wait for that. It'll be good hopefully.

    I really need to do that. As of now, I'm really conflicted. What would opt for if you had a budget of 20-22k?

    It really doesn't matter what I would have opted, because everyone has their own priorities. In my phone, I would want to see stock (or near stock) android, atleast 5.5 inch screen, smooth enough performance for daily tasks (I don't play games on phone) and just good enough camera for occasional clicks.
    To be honest, the 15-25k segment is kind of dry in mobile market, maybe because ppl generally like spending little (10-13k) or all the way to >30k. For deciding one, you need to map out your priorities.
    Regarding Sony Xperia X: It has Snapdragon 650 SOC, which is not the best in this price segment as you can get Snapdragon 820 (high end) in Xiaomi Mi 5. However, I would anyday opt for Xperia as I hate Xiaomi's miui android and Snapdragon 650 is decent enough for smooth tasks processing. But yeah, the 5" display on Xperia X would have hurt me.

    Apart from Mi 5, I am not seeing any other competitive option in this segment (don't like device quality of ASUS, Honour, lenovo). I personally don't like Moto phones simple because of their design. umm..I may have considered iPhone 6 or finally decided to wait and increase my budget.
    Have you given thoughts on options from Samsung (like A7?)

    You said it, bro. My priorities are exactly the same. Uncluttered UI, smooth everyday performance and a good camera. Even I'm not into gaming. That's the reason I went thought of XA Ultra. It's big, it's beautiful, got a stunning camera, but the only thing I'm not sure of is its everyday performance. I don't want it to lag or crash every now and then. 5" screen is the only turn off for me in Xperia X. I'm using a Micromax Canvas Turbo since 2 years. XA ultra ought to perform better than this right? Even I hate the likes of ASUS, Xiaomi or Honor.

    And yes, instead of A7 I was thinking about Samsung C7 pro.

    The UI in Sony xperia range is definitely clean..I am using xperia from last 5 years now..previous phone was Sony xperia ZL and now C5 ...If it was not the touch problem itself in my phone I would have selected Sony again maybe. it maybe my piece was bad but then my friend have similar experience with XA ultra..Cam /screen/design is definitely great.

    My dad is using Moto G5 plus..its good , he dont have any problem till now. But I cant say much coz I dont have in-hand experience.

    I can say its more irresponsive then my Xperia ZL or one plus one. Its same with XA ultra...the problem is specially with home back onscreen keys ..also if there is a single droplet or any kind of sweat on screen then screen with respond in wrong ways

    that's a bummer. And its something that can't be resolved using firmware updates I guess.

    No it cant be resolved...phone definitely became faster using the androd updates and regular sony updates...but these issues are frustrating ...if you sweat a lot then just forget XA ultra .

    okay.. point noted. But nonetheless, give me an alternative to XA Ultra. Right now C7 Pro or OnePlus 3 can be another option. Are these two any good? (OnePlus 3T is beyond my budget).

    Truly saying I am moving towards One Plus 5 now. You can wait a bit , definitely One plus 3T price will come down after one plus 5 launch. My wife has One plus one and its fast and smooth.
