Anonymous, 07 May 2017The bezels are unnecessarily big. It's like 2012 all over again. :D Or maybe even 2011?They are just average in size, whar are you talking about?
iPhone got the largest ones yet no one makes mention of that
VoloKin Project, 07 May 2017Sony will never learn. People are complaining about those bezels and the bad speaker but Sony ... moreMost people that complain about bezels are people that definitely wouldn't buy it anyway , and bezels aren't that big either ,yes they are little bit bigger(like 1-2%) because SONY puts big camera sensors and stereo speakers there but they look really big because of SONYs unique design that features symmetric sharp corners and no physical home button on front to fill up the space on bottom bezel . check the screenshots below and you will see what I'm talking about .

Anonymous, 06 May 2017Sorry but 72h is bad for a low power SOC.
I think the snapdragons are much better in this ca... more16nm vs 14nm
SD821 phones like the G6 and SD820 XZ scored the same there - those phones are good in battery life
Anonymous, 06 May 2017Nah nothing to be impressed about. A3 2017 achieves 93 hours with 2350 mAh battery.With a 14nm processor and AMOLED screen
Would be funny to see it only get 80h. Lol
Ali Bashir, 06 May 2017Where did you read 72h endurance rate?? Not available in the specifications sheet. Ah, now I spot someone who doesn't read the review test
shino03, 06 May 2017Gsmarena really hates those bezels. I wonder why? I find them really useful.Wtf! Those bezels are useful? lol They are horrible imo
XA1 in first looks not bad! But, internally is intolerable because MediaTek
And something's else! When it has not stereo speakers I have except! My except is reduction bezels
VoloKin Project, 07 May 2017Sony will never learn. People are complaining about those bezels and the bad speaker but Sony ... moreIf they want to increase the market share, they better listen to the complaints...
GSM Arena is just being honest with the phone reviews, so that's why Sony's get a bit negative reviews. :) But they will say all the good things about every phones, if there are any, like this one has a pretty good battery life (surprised me) and the camera seems to be okay.
Sony will never learn. People are complaining about those bezels and the bad speaker but Sony doesn't seem to care.

teotron, 06 May 2017I agree, xperia X is an awesome phone. But 650 and 651 and 652 are ancient technology processo... moreWell S650 - 652~653 (S651 doesn't exist) ere 33~43% (120~160%) fastest on both CPU and GPU front then S625 in common tasks & not so much inefficient regardless that they are based on older 28nm HPM lithography process. For instance Mi Max that I poses have 33% better battery endurance even the battery is 60% bigger along with 23% larger display that is still FHD compared to this Sony & Snapdragon S65x series are certainly still not depreciated regarding neither performance nor futures. Peple tend not to understand how all RF & mixed components aren't made (nor will ever be) on a FinFET which do make a lot in regular every day use.
Anonymous, 06 May 2017You could buy Xperia X for the same price as of galaxy A5, its secretly water resistant and h... moreI agree, xperia X is an awesome phone. But 650 and 651 and 652 are ancient technology processors, should not be even selling in 2017. 28nm manufacturing technology is simply obsolete, consuming most of its energy to heat not to work. If you need more performance (but why, it is only for 3D gaming) you should go for 820 or just wait until this autumn to get snapdragon 660...
What the hell O.O
A 72hr endurance rating from this 2300mah battery compared to its predecessor's 54hr endurance rating??
Didn't expect that at all. I can't believe what I'm seeing.
This phone is f****** awesome :D
Anonymous, 06 May 2017Nah nothing to be impressed about. A3 2017 achieves 93 hours with 2350 mAh battery.Well considering A3 is just 4.7inch and packs a weaker SOC plus 14nm architect....... It's 93h battery isn't anything to be impressed about either!

Not bad at all, maybe the price is a bit high, but the rest is nice for a mid range phone.
