If you are looking to purchase a new Sony Xperia X Performance smartphone, the timing could not be any better if you are on the Rogers’ network or thinking of switching. Although the Xperia X Performance is currently available on Bell, Rogers will only allow you to pre-order for a July 14 delivery. Many customers went to Rogers’ website to order their Xperia X Performance, but get an “out of stock” label – Rogers has said that this glitch is now fixed. The Xperia X Performance comes in at $199.99 on select two-year plans or $699.99 on a no-term. As a teaser – or possibly to entice buyers to stay with Rogers, they are giving away a free Sony headset, which is valued at $399 – not a bad deal at all if you can wait until July 14 for your Xperia X Performance.
The top-of-the-line Sony Xperia X Performance is designed for comfort and impressive looks. It features rounded glass edges and a seamless brushed metal backing with a 5-inch size that is easy to carry and hold.
