Thanks for the review. I was patiently waiting for it. Seems like Sony did a good job upgrading the XA. Glad to know that battery life and performance has improved over from before and added the upgrade to camera department too. I also feel that Sony could've done a better job at reducing the length of the chin and forehead, or at least, supply it with a front facing stereo speakers. The battery also, would probably perform awesomely if they placed a slightly larger battery (2700mah maybe?). :)

The only advantage of Xperia is their video stabilisation, the best! On other things, Huawei P9/Mate 9/P10 trumps. Be rational. And i know dxomark rate X Performance higher than P10, but in real life, its the otherway around.
[deleted post]i liked the XA so much i wanted to buy it, but the battery endurance was way too low.now the XA1 is almost perfect in all areas except the design, so i am not trolling dumpyhummpy .

People are hating Sony for large bezels
When the X Ultra comes out with extremely small bezels and 21:9 ratio screen, people will hate again
What's wrong with people's brains? Are they using it? Such a waste of space to have them that won't be ever used

It may have smaller bezels, but it doesn't take away with the fact that it's got some massive ones, probably even more than Sony still - those side bezels are only making it smaller, not noticing black border bezels.
Huawei got better cameras than Sony? Since when? And where?
Maybe that's from Planet Z where only Chinese people live there
AnonD-395326, 08 May 2017chck side by side photo comparison with xzs vs huawei p10 or plus
Oh, the P10 and P10 Plua
Two of the 87-point scorers in DxOMark, just as good as the XZ, which in itself, has lost to the XA1's camera minus video recording.
Good for China that they at least one competent brand that will give them a positive feedback, because if Huawei never thought of paying Leica to do their cameras, Chinese phones would be irrelevang by now

Don't worry, Sony shall, some day, get to read the memo stuck on their bulletin somewhere their office, pinned by one of four sharp corners of a recent Xperia model, reading "Uhhh... bezels. Get with the times!"
