Just a personal priority thats all....
The idea of Sony ZX1 amped by PHA-2 is pretty fun to me! The X5 will also be a fantastic sound, but the 2.4" screen , rockchip processor and mechanical control wheel make crappy to use, compared to the Sonys 4" higher res touch and snappy dual core processor. Although I don't consider the ZX1 good value, at the price Sony is asking they should have upped the specs, like why is the screen only 480p when sony's smart phones in the $300 range have 720p screens, and in the $500+ range have 1080p screens with quad core processor (I'm not asking for quad core on ZX1, that is overkill, but a 720p screen would have no drawbacks, and would just be nicer to use).
Also I find it quite hilarious that sony doesn't include earbuds with the ZX1 "because its high res/audiophile" Then why does the ZX1 have an inbuilt piece of crap mono loudspeaker on its back? whats audiophile about that! I have an Sony xperia phone and the mono loudspeaker is soo rubbish, my sisters iphones speakers sound ten times better, at least they are stereo 2 channel.
