Sony Xperia X vs Huawei P9: Can These Phones Really Replace Your DSLR?

The technology found in today's handheld devices are nothing short of spectacular. The developments made throughout the years have made it almost possible for a handheld gadget to do everything - from video calls to making the most beautiful photos.

Sony is one of the bigger players in the smartphone market and their Xperia line is top of the line, as noted by News Talk. The newest to join its roster is the Xperia X, a 5-inch unit with that boasts amazing camera features. With 23 megapixels at its rear camera and 13 megapixels for its front camera, there is no doubt that users will be able to snap quality photos with ease. Sony has also added a slew of camera features to the unit, in order for the user to make personal touches to their phones. For those less experienced with the details of photos, the point and shoot option is still available and still gives beautiful images.

The Xperia X is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdraon 650 64 bit processor. It has 3GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of internal storage. Of course there is a microSD slot in case users want to add to the storage. The Xperia X is also enabled with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0, which means users can get as much 5.5 hours of usage with just 10 minutes of charge.

Meanwhile, Huawei also made an interesting camera-related decision for their newest unit, the Huawei P9. The screen is bigger than the Xperia X's at 5.5 inches. And as Cyber Shack reports, the camera is also less in comparison, at 12 megapixels. What is interesting is that the unit has two 12 megapixel cameras. The first is a traditional colored one, and the other shoots in only black and white. Huawei boasts that the black and white camera is able to take in thrice as much light information than the conventional one it resides next to.

The P9 is powered by Huawei's own Kirin 955 eight-core. It has 32GB of RMA and 32GB of expandable storage. The battery is 3000mAh and the unit is fitted with a rear-facing fingerprint reader and a USB Type C connector.
