This phone is No good had problem charging sent it to Bell no solution .Sent it to Sony they are claiming the phone rhey received has a different IMEI # from the one I gave on the phone.Now thy want me to pay for diagnostics and the phone was under warranty. I am done. WILL NEVER BUY A SONY PHONE EVER.
My honest comment about xperia phone is that they have caused me trouble and sony offers no help.

xXENDER FREAKXx, 24 Jun 2017Heavy use is definitely not going to have very good battery life since this MEDITATEK HELIO P1... moreThe only great weakness of this device is Mediatek. Sadly it's another story than its long lasting Snapdragons. But still what Sony did from Mediatek's is simply amazing!
Hi everybody, I took a pause commenting here because of a change I have made in my personal life. Now IÂ’m back.
So among other things I did, I met my cousin from a pause of few years and he saw my XA device and he was very interested about how I maintained it and how this device felt in its hands (I kept it very clean and did upgrade it to latest Android 7.0 - 33.3.A.1.97 Â– that is a maximum and best upgrade to it till now) and I gave it to him (he had an Iphone 5C model until now). I was testing XA1 with my friend at his repair service company for a while and I was so pleasantly surprised by its capabilities.
Cpu, memory, camera, design, and Android Oreo scheduled upgrade, plus having now a special free contract offer from an electronics dealer, made me decide to give my XA as a present to my cousin (he like it very much overall) and I ordered for myself the XA1 model.
As a conclusion to all that want and still have the possibility to buy and enjoy the Xperia XA mode, please take note:
*This device is perfect for daylight photography (at least after latest Nougat upgrade even better than any Samsung at its class at least) and for any task that do not exceed its 2gb of ram limitation, it can manage everything from offline gps to some interesting games.
*Take care of it installing good/compatible software, don't flash/root it if you don't know best how this operation works (Mediatek motherboards are very bad comparing to Qualkomm ones at changing Kernel and other stuff like that) erase/stop bloatware and keep a good physical maintain (not too much humidity nor dust) and for sure nothing bad will happen to it.
*Of course, the battery remain a weak point for it, but for a price tag under 200 euros it's for sure best Mediatek device available on the market.
This is among few Mediatek cheap jewels. Good luck!
Shailesh roa , 12 Oct 2017Don't buy this phone not support 4g,poor camera, heat mobile phoneStop bullshitting this device. It's ideal to have it mostly now that it's at a lower price! It has an amazing 4g and dual sim, and an ideal wi-fi tethering. Most Samsung/Iphones devices scream to have such an ideal compatibility to other devices and signal reception. Have a life dude!
Don't buy this phone not support 4g,poor camera, heat mobile phone
after update 33.3.A.1.97 screen become unresponsive,notification panel automatically downed,when i press power button screen has been on but not working after repress off and on screen will work
my device F3116
I don't understand why people are complaining about battery life, the 7.0 nougat update has really improved this phone a lot. Battery life is 2 days on my wife's XA and she uses Facebook heaps. Grab a bargain phone, plus of people are having issues with the camera focusing, disable the AR app and it will be sorted and take great photos
nithin, 19 Jun 2017really? what about battery life?(heavy use)Heavy use is definitely not going to have very good battery life since this MEDITATEK HELIO P10 is having a 28mm manufacturering process which is not as efficient as 14mm manufacturering process. Plus this processor sometimes doesn't do heavy workloads well. So I woukd suggest u to get a much higher tier like XA1 with improved processor, much more efficient but if u want great multitasking get Xperia X or some SNAPDRAGON 650 and higher chipset phones
The pictures in my xperia xa are reddish in color and I have not notice any in my previous xperia mobile
