I would be much more excited if Sony could make this little mid range phone a powerful one with this stand out edge to edge look, it should have been the Xperformance with this Xlook, THE QUESTION IS WHY MAKE IT CHEAP?
Anonymous, 22 Jun 2016What are you talking about? Every phone has a huge bezel on top and bottom.Not every phone out there, like Nexus 6 and some LG's for example.

My experience with my brother Z3 audio quality isn't good, turbid sound and low volume. Try HTC or Samsung flagship phones their audio quality Is clearer and louder.
Anonymous, 22 Jun 2016uhhh...you should compare the Xiaomi Note 3 to the Xperia X because they both used the SD652. Actually they both use the SD650, but the question here is, what do you get for your money?
The Redmi note 3 is cheaper than the XA, so for that reason they are competing in the same market and it makes sense to compare their specs.
Paddyman, 22 Jun 2016Totally agree, Sony are being undercut with better specs and hardware, even the build quality.... moreuhhh...you should compare the Xiaomi Note 3 to the Xperia X because they both used the SD652.
Modern day xperia sp. Reminds me of the old x sp with its led light bar below the phone. That phone is unique
cozxta, 22 Jun 2016Not to mention that all Sony phones have low volume output!But they have a clear, clarity sound instead of the boom sound.
Damn that looks amazing... i guess most ppl will be bumped about the battery (such as myself) but i really like the looks of the cell, well done Sony but ppl might ask for a bit more...
Thanks gsmarena for your great reviwe,thats why i always use your website,
The xa is certainly a great phone, everything is great except battery, its strange sony used such a poor battery, im sure sony will improve it by an update,
LONG LIVE SONY
Funny thing is they claim 2days battery life for Z3, Z5, X also. This for entry level specs, midrange price. You can get A5(2016),G4,950,S5,Z3+, simply a lot phones, all a lot better than this. They would do better not releasing any phone than releasing this, really whats mystery behind release of this thing?
Momo Simon, 22 Jun 2016Reading review on gsmarena and p****arena, xperia X has bad battery life on gsm, but exelent o... moregsmArena tests call time, web browsing and video playback with the endurance score also including standby consumption. pArena, however, runs a "custom web-script" that's supposed to simulate real-life usage, whatever that actually means, disregarding standby.
unless i misunderstood something, i think gsmArena has the better testing procedure for being more transparent and showing separate results for different types of usage so you can make your own comparison.
in the case of the Xperia X, the average endurance rating seems to come from rather high standby consumption.
you can use either test, you just have to know how to interpret and compare the result and how it was determined in the first place. a word or number alone doesn't say much
