mir, 24 Jun 2016Did you really expect 2 days battery life from a 2300mah battery and 5 inch screen? This phone... moreBecause that's the only thing u see abt it...just hv a look in the review section.. it is clearly specified that camera is better than other mid rangers.. both rear and front... design is one of the best.. storage capacity... easy to handle... etc etc... don't just go all anti Sony ya... if u don't like Sony, all is good.. but don't gv misleading comments.. No offense buddy....
CarvTheJarv, 25 Jun 2016For the first time in quite awhile, GSMArena has given a good conclusion to a Sony device whil... moreBattery life is the worst thing about this Phoenix, and its an important aspect. But it isn't exactly the only fault with the device. It just completely overshadows the other faults of the device. You wouldn't find a phone out in the last few years with worse battery life, and you'd struggle to find one at all.
Anyway, there isn't exactly anything particularly good about this device, no USP, and its about average at best in everything.
CarvTheJarv, 25 Jun 2016For the first time in quite awhile, GSMArena has given a good conclusion to a Sony device whil... moreYeah, I agree with you. Sony isn't appreciated by people because it is not as good as Samsung or Apple for people. Same thing goes for GSMArena but I'm really surprised that for the first time, they appreciated in a review a Sony phone.
CarvTheJarv, 25 Jun 2016For the first time in quite awhile, GSMArena has given a good conclusion to a Sony device whil... moreDig into the comments more to find other gripes the readers have with this phone.
Are the sides really metal ? I read somewhere (xperiablog) that it's all polycarbonate.
We still don't get this device so we can't able to judge it's battery life. .after lunch we will used to know about this ..so far wait and don't update any review about battery life. .may be after buy ul get update about battery life suddenly. . Just wait and watch
Oho...great design ...thanks sony company.... I love all xperia phones...u make always something different and awesome... Yoooohooooooo...sony is best !!!!!
Grey1213, 24 Jun 2016It looks like laughing at you hurt your feelings more than it was supposed to, my bad. My f... moreWow o_O You're awesome (Pointless and personal replies) !!! Anyways let it be (sigh) !!!
For the first time in quite awhile, GSMArena has given a good conclusion to a Sony device while everyone here in the comments section keeps bringing up the only bad thing they said about this phone: "Battery Life"
[deleted post]Only further proof your expectations are extremely low just like its battery. LOL
Ali Bashir, 24 Jun 2016Are you kidding me? Z1 battery crap from the day it comes? I charge it two times while i am ad... more'most people around the world leave their phones on charges rapidly while playing this game'
Where did you come up with this garbage?
Did you go into every house in each country and watch them play this game?
Honestly, just because you do it does not mean everyone else does it.
Maybe people who have a S7 edge don't need to charge while playing Clash of clans.
Ali Bashir, 24 Jun 2016Are you kidding me? Z1 battery crap from the day it comes? I charge it two times while i am ad... moreClash of clans? LOL
Try GTA San Andreas, Infinite Flight or 007 Goldeneye N64 Emulator.
Then you will experience what real battery intensive games are.
You should try infinite flight, my Z1 overheats and throttles after 10 minutes of flying.
My z1 will only last 2-3 hours playing these games.
Ali Bashir, 24 Jun 2016Are you kidding me? Z1 battery crap from the day it comes? I charge it two times while i am ad... moreI guess its safe to say you have extremely low expectations.
Z1 battery was crap in 2013.
Compare that to note 3 and G2 which were superior.
Z1 was equivalent to 5s.
Everyone who had iphone prior to the 6 Plus complained about poor battery life.
Who has use the S2 before? The XA endurance should probably like the S2, there are so similar in the endurance comparison, but, if you want for further maybe should always enable the Stamina mode, for go more just change it to Ultra Stamina mode. I have read the terms of 2days battery life*, I think for my usage I have to charge it daily, it is fine, because most of the smartphones is the same, because they have more powerful processor to process the complex arithmetic. I can't claim the XA battery is good since the result is similar to S2. Consider it the narrowest 5" phone (more handy in daily use) with metal frame 2.5D (gorgeous and premium looks) and Metal frame 137.4g weight (light weight but still maintain the durability), what is the advantage here is the 64bit octa-core processor and the 13 MP camera with Hybrid Autofocus and 8 MP front camera for low-light selfies with wide angle lens (88 degree) and support up to 200GB micro-sd card...everything is better than a 5years flagship (S2), but it is a new midrange for now. I wish Sony could maintain or improve the battery endurance in the Android N for this XA.
Ali Bashir, 24 Jun 2016Ok correction, one time with initial charge, secondly where did you see 40 endurance rating, f... moreIts 40 hours. And you are still charging your phone a lot. I know it seems normal to you, but that's only because you haven't used a phone with really good battery life before.
But anyway, right now you just found out that the battery life is even worse than you thought. Time for us to see if you have it in you to admit the battery life is incredibly poor. You would struggle to find a phone in 2016 with worse battery life. Even the Ubuntu meizu pro 5 with incredibly poor optimisation is doing better than it.
Ali Bashir, 23 Jun 2016Battery life is average 55 hours , i see the low capacity is better because it will full charg... moreits about the user habit . i prefer not charge my phone from 8am until 11pm even once.
that's why i even angry with my Samsung A7 with just 2600mah which got 10hours wifi web browse result test by GSMarena , but in fact its only can last until 4pm with just 24% left .
Ali Bashir, 24 Jun 2016And i insist that the battery endurance time is going to be either same or better than my z1 s... moreAnd the only reason for that being true is that your Z1 battery has degraded sufficiently over time due to continues charging / discharging.
Ali Bashir, 24 Jun 2016Ok correction, one time with initial charge, secondly where did you see 40 endurance rating, f... moreDid you read this review??? The XA has 40 hours endurance rating...
Forty (40) hours is a really bad rating, compared to other phones that are tested using the exact same method. You seem to have a problem understanding even the basics.
