Hi! I am really interested in, and hopeful about Sailfish successfully working on the Xperia X. But then when I began looking for the device, I found out that the Single-SIM version is not sold in India. I also wrote to Sony (India) and confirmed that neither do they officially sell it in India, nor do they have any plans to do so in the future.

So I thought it'd be nice if we could all put together an alphabetically sorted list of countries stating whether or not this particular model is available. Feel free to re-format it to look better, or make other additions to make it more informative.

About the price: which one? Official one? Here in Italy the price can be very different depending on many factors.

magullo ( 2017-07-15 22:59:44 +0300 )edit

I bought mine in Switzerland at Digitec and renewed my Swisscom contract (Natel Infinity M) for another 12 months. The Xperia X cost me Fr. 67.--.

How to identify model F5121 of Sony Xperia X?

Comparing F5121, F5121 USA and F5122 on gsmarena.com seems to give: F5121: Fingerprint (side-mounted), single SIM F5121 USA: Fingerprint (disabled, side-mounted), single SIM F5122: Dual SIM, Internal Mempory: 64 GB (not 32GB), Fingerprint (side-mounted)

Many shops seems to use their own model numbers, not F5121. Any danger of getting another (older) model of Xperia X?

Jolla also mentioned that the phone should be without operator lock.

Sony Xperia X seems to be available without subscription in Norway, at least from Net-on-net (Art.nr: 230084).

I have seen a F5121 international dual sim version. Is that a typo on the sellers part? and it should be F5122?

If you can only get or already have the dual sim versionF5122 the chances are high that you can flash the image nevertheless. At least flashing F5121 android image to dual sim version works as tested by user lantern.

Verkkokauppa.com has the F5121 model in stock at 299.90€

A word of warning thou: They don't have many left and the last time they were restocked was in late April so once stock runs out they're not going to be restocked on account of Sony abandoning the whole mid segment. Only other store I could find with it in stock was ProShop and they charge 80€ more for the same device.

Edit:Seems like I was wrong about availability at Verkkokauppa.com as they today got another shipment of more than 25 devices (they don't specify exact numbers if it's more than 25).

Yes, the stock was at -25 earlier today so they must have received more than 50 phones. Maybe a good time to place an order =)

olli ( 2017-07-21 22:31:41 +0300 )edit

why buy new as once you've flashed it with SFOS you will have invalidated any warranty so as I see it you may as well buy one cheaper second-hand.

davekelly ( 2017-07-22 20:35:40 +0300 )edit

Good point , haven't ordered yet. Might as well wait for Sailfish release and see if I can find one used

olli ( 2017-07-23 15:29:44 +0300 )edit

@davekelly Apart from iPhones and other devices with locked bootloaders, that's just a common myth. The warranty may not apply to the new software, but the warranty still applies to the hardware. This is specially true of devices from manufacturers like Sony who have their own open source projects.

@rfa, are those 399 Australian or US dollars? (@ced117 take note in the table, 399 AUD would be about 320 USD)

Australia: Yes (@rfa has already mentioned JB Hifi, but I'm listing alternatives).

Amazon.com (ships to Australia): $330AUD mobile, $10AUD shipping = $340AUD total.

BuyMobile.com.au: $370AUD mobile, $30AUD shipping = $400AUD total.

On Amazon.de, there are used Xperias available, and you may select the desired condition. I recently bought one of them in condition "Gebraucht - Wie neu" (used - as new) for 225 EUR. Seller was Silverlinetrading, but shipping was by Amazon Germany.

It came in the original box with all accessories, original screen protector in place. No signs of usage, everything seems to work so far (with Android, of cause).

Since flashing Sailfish would break the phone's warranty anyway, buying a used one may be less of a problem. At least it was for me. Now I have a hard time waiting for the Sailfish image to become available...

Quite many shops seem to list "Xperia X" devices with "manufacturer's model number" 1302-xxxx, which could help people confirming they are getting the right model as not all shops display F5121. Thanks for olf and pfbach for posting confirmations for this.

Some of the (Finnish) shops I just reviewed mention 1302-9422 as well as F5121 (Proshop) while most have only 1302-9422 but not F5121 explicitly mentioned (Verkkokauppa.com, Jimm's)

According to Verkkokauppa.com's customer service their product is F5121: https://www.verkkokauppa.com/fi/questions/product/15954/gsbsd/

Yes, Sony model numbers 1302-xxxx seem to be Model F5121 for Europe or "International version".

It looks like the Sony model numbers 1303-xxxx are Model F5121 for the UK.

Note, that I have no clue what the trailing four digits denote.
