Been using it for a month now. Everything is fine. Battery life is a bit weak but the fast charging speed compensated it. It took around 1 hour to get it fully charged from 20%.
Looking at other phones after using the XA for some time, I find that Sony's user interface is really good. It gives me that premium yet user friendly kind of interface that is not present in other phones. Undoubtedly, Sony's own music player and album gallery are some of the best ones out there.
Initially before I bought the phone, I was a bit worried about the specs on paper. But now, I realized that software and user interface plays a bigger role as that is what you as the user will be interacting with for most of the time. I'm not saying specs are not important but what good can it do if the software or user interface is clunky and not user friendly.
If you are fine with the battery life, then I guess there is nothing much to complain about for this phone. In any case, you can get yourself a portable USB charger or just hook it up to a charger when you feel that you need more charge. As I said earlier, charging is fast even for a normal charger. Even in 30 minutes, it already charges back up to more than half of the full capacity.

Trever, 16 Sep 2016What?? I take one handed photos with my Sony using the shutter button. I'm left handed so i don't have any problems taking pictures
.., 16 Sep 2016guys please tell me what happened to your phone after the update. Mine still the same. the onl... moreyou are right . nothing worthy happens after update. you can go back to the messages and find two od my messages that I have already written, and you can see the major problems with xa phone there. since then no one could reject it(they just talked about generally sony phones. and nothing is supposed to happen also in future to give a better condition to your phone. why? because we have an expression in my country that says: you can preserve food to keep for long time by adding salt to it, unless the salt itself has become bad (unusable). in Sony, the salt is bad itself. go to my explanation number one that i have already written. that problem is not small. before a software and a product goes out to the market, many experts test and confirm it.
this problem is not what you can not observe in such a professional place. sony is supposed to be using professionals. so why such problems are ignored? use your intelligency if u have. in my oppinion, in my country this action, and this problem is not called mistake, it is called treason. the problem is that the salt of sony is gone wasted
guys please tell me what happened to your phone after the update. Mine still the same. the only noticeable thing is the brightness.
Touch, performance and battery life - still the same or maybe unnoticeable
This phone is great after the update. CanÂ’t say any negative. The battery is average but you could take that against the positives of this phone. I was surprised to see a lot of negative things at the beginingof the thread but that was and Android bug already fixed by the updates. Camera is superb. The bashers are just jealous. Better have an battery that is not above average than one that explodes 
