A3 is worse than last years XA in every benchmark, just check A3's ... moreThe xa is not optimised
processer is not good less eff
When you compare the battery life threatening a3 2016 and 2017 would oppress it a lot
Xa might have a faster processer but less efficient
Heats up more than the a3
The xa1 has overcome most of these issues but the a3 2017 is a more premium phone
I'm using a previous-gen model, the XA. And I have to say, I love it. I love the design, I love the way the phone feels in my hand. Two things that could be improved are battery and quantity of RAM. Now that XA1 is better, I'm sure I'll get it as an upgrade. Just have to wait until the price drops. Bought my XA for 180$, which I think was a bargain (in Poland).
Very bad mobile. Sir my xa1 mobile phone 2 days old . first and last big problem > my phone not working, and no switching on. Please replesh my phone
Tell me. OK

Vensla, 11 May 2017Design reminds me of Xiaomi Mi3yeah. they copy mi3
+ great camera, there are not many phones that can compete with it,
+ very narrow, easy to hold if you don't have Klitchko sized hands,
+ dual sim AND micro SD at the same time,
+/- Mediatek SOC -> some say it's much worse than Qualcomm SOC, but I haven't seen any comparison of power consumption, performance between these chips,
- small battery, but I am not a heavy user,
- lots of preinstalled software like facebook app (I prefer facebook lite).

No need to drag out all these data. Just pointing out that there is nothing to be overly excited about XA1's supposedly good battery performance.

Z3 compact is the king of battery.
Looks like I'm getting this as an upgrade from my M4. Everything is an upgrade (or the same) but damn that video quality is just not good at all (camera makes up for it).

A3 is worse than last years XA in every benchmark, just check A3's review.
While Xa1 is on par with sd625 and also on par with A5 in cpu performance, but weaker in Gpu performance.
A3 is expensive than Xa1, has 2gb RAM, 16gb internal storage and the most dreadful thing............. Larger bezels( less STB ratio).
But A3 has FP scanner and ip68 certification and better battery, whats your choice?
Xain47, 06 May 2017Well considering A3 is just 4.7inch and packs a weaker SOC plus 14nm architect....... It's 93h... moreA3 has same screen resolution as XA1. The 0.3 inch screen difference is negligible. The 2 nm architecture difference is also negligible. 93 hr vs 72 hr is a significant difference of 30% though.
