This is my review after using the device about a week.
Battery life is ok,can lasts one day easily with normal usage. in heavy usage always screen on about 5hrs. Very quick charging 100% in less then 1and half hours.
Audio quality on earphone Awsome,Out of the world on my sennheiser ear buds.
Front camera quality in daylight is excellent,in night suffers a bit.
Low light selfies not so good,lots of noise. But in good light its nice.
Screen display quality Very good,sharp enough for 720p,no need of 1080p.
Touch response & ui very responsive,no hanging issues.
Call quality very good & loud on both earpiece & speakerphone.
Built in speaker is not loud enough to listen music or watching videos.
Only issues i found is heating. Heats most while using the camera about few minutes.
However it doesn't heat while charging. little bit warm while watching hd movies or downloading content from internet.
In my opinion every handset has positive & negative aspects. if you can adjust with the negative side,then its the best. Don't go for cheap Chinese phone,you really can't get that experience which can't be expressed while holding such a beauty from sony.
Bala, 11 Jul 2016Very good phone, using for the past 2 weeks. simply awesome.How is the battery life? Battery Performance??
Im just forwarding the solution for massive battery draining for XA. (Software error leads to sleep mode failure)
Solution for now: http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/...ght/true#M44
gagan, 08 Jul 2016Which coliyr looks classy between white and black Try lime gold, looks awesome, black and white phones are too common.
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2016some one please post honestly on the battery life ? how long does it last with normal usage?Forget about gaming on this device, it's not meant for that. For me I play games on my i pad, I use my XA only for social networking like: Facebook, what's app, viber, line, etc and it barely lasts for a day. The only downside of this awesome phone is its battery life, else everything is superb. I love my XA.
Good phone. D Love camera amazing. Phone
God battery. Backup. But one and haf day
if only Sony had put a better battery, this would have been the best phone its really sad.:-(
Anonymous, 05 Jul 2016there is a new update for the battery, -problem with wifi- has the battery life improved after... moreGo for xa, much better camera, design, benchmark performance, best ui
I can say nothing about battery
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2016some one please post honestly on the battery life ? how long does it last with normal usage?Battery life is poor with normal use, only 12 hours. with videos only 4-5 hours.
yeah a good phone for mid range.. lookiing good & working better than my old samsung s4 mini
there is a new update for the battery, -problem with wifi- has the battery life improved after that? please check and let us know
confused between samsung galaxy A5 2016 AND sony XA Dual
Battery back up is very poor , i use to charge twice in a day after normal use its not giving 1 day battery back up .
i bought xperia xa 1week before...
i am using from 1 week.
and honestly its . not a worth for the money. design looks. camera. overall performance is good but battery!!! battery sucks...!! its drain quickly even on normal usage... not giving of one day of backup..
i charged it twice in a day..
and while taking photos its heat quickly and camera take little time to open..
but that not matter much..
the main desadvantage is battery.. worst battery backup...
battery drains very fast.... and with 2300mah it almost feels like a landline ....always wired for charge !!!!!
