I was browsing for phones on the weekend and they had this one for $229 (just to give you some idea of how hot this is -- the deal is $15 off, not $185 as they claim)

I decided to buy the LG V20 instead from the other RFD thread (with free priority shipping delivered in 3 days). Major drawbacks (for me) of the Xperia X are the small battery capacity and no QuickCharge. It's also a slower CPU, older OS (thus will stop getting updates earlier)

Sony Xperia X has Quickcharge 2.0:

It is not officially but on the very first hour I got this phone I dropped a full irish coffee straight on it, without any protection. When I mean on it it just didn't got onto the phone, the whole content of the sugary drink went on the screen No damage. I was pretty unhappy with myself but happy that the phone survived.
Battery could be a tad better, but as a power user I am not a good benchmark.

You can get much better phones for roughly the same price. Paying that kind of price for anything that doesn't have a SD820 is a waste of money.

I wouldn't discount it just because it's SD6xx. I have use SD6xx phone that works like a charm and SD8xx phone that stall and crash every day. Chipset is just one of many pieces of the puzzle.

Normally a user does not really require a water resistant phone, but it is an ease of mind for situation like this :)

is this USD?

edit: it is USD. IMO, not worth. OP, you should really post in CAD or at least mention it's USD.

Exactly. I felt very stupid for not considering it in my purchase. Next day I got a case from Amazon and my gf got the most deluxe one for her iphone. It makes the otterbox one looks weak !
