Go away, Cassy. Troll somewhere else. You and those ugly, laggy, overrated Samsung phones.
This phone is interesting considering I just got a PS4 slim yesterday for $200. Some Best Buy employee gave me a $100 discount from an LG G5 promo that was supposed to include a $100 gift card but expired. Nice guy for still offering me $100 discount.
I may need to get a Sony Xperia next to try out PS4's Remote Play. I'm eyeing the X Performance or XZ though. The former was going for $300 recently. And a little more compact than the XZ. Like Pixel or S7 flat in height.
Even though my Clippers lost last Sunday, I did hit the Kentucky Derby yesterday. I'm still happy at spending. A Sony phone would be my 11th phone though. Would never get a Samsung again. S7 edge will be my last. Pretty exterior but UGLY software experience.
I don't undrerstand why people who are not interested in XA1 are bashing this phone!
XA1 cannot be compared with Galaxy A5, its even cheaper than A3 let alone A5.
Its good looking mobile, and larger top and bottom bezels don't effect the one hand usage but just make it a little less pocketable.
I like the gold version the most, what a design. Sony is absolutely recognizable as a Sony.

Inside those bezels is a 1/2.3 inch sensor, an L-shaped PCB just like the iPhones that somehow had an important reason with the shape, stereo speakers, and a headphone jack. On the XA1, the issue here is that the phone is tall, and does it affect usage? No, because whatever phone we use, it will always be too large for our hands and hand gymnastics will always be done. Plus, width is the factor that affects usability more. And this phone's width is offset by the forehead and chin.
AnonD-633729, 07 May 2017What's your point? Iphones have ips lcd.This is nearly as sharp as a nearly $1000 iphone.
Anonymous, 07 May 2017Why Sony's phones have mostly a weak loudspeaker? Because almost: dust and waterproofed! Maybe
AnonD-633729, 07 May 2017Chinese brands, huawei, oppo, vivo, xiaomi or whatever, all have better camera than sony. Sony... moreUh huh?
Can you link me directly to DxOMark Mobile with at least one Chinese crap phone scoring higher than the XZ?
Maybe I'd give you a dollar if you can :DD
ZolaIII, 07 May 2017Well S650 - 652~653 (S651 doesn't exist) ere 33~43% (120~160%) fastest on both CPU and GPU fro... moreI never said that 650 are depreciated. I said that ancient technology should not be delivered in 2017. Its like buying new laptop with 4th generation of Intel processors for the same price as you are able to buy 7th generation. If you want to have a 28nm chip, please do. But you should be getting this phone for half a price, otherwise you are being ****. You realise when was that Intel introduced 22nm technology (from 32nm)?. That was in 2011.
Every Sony products has always make a war on every comment section. But wait, look at that! Sony bezel-less phone from 2013! http://m.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_zl-3d-spin-5203.php
Anonymous, 07 May 2017It had 30% Better battery rating with 30% more battery. Duh learn maths pleaseOk, lets do some maths: A5 has 23,34% bigger battery and outperforms xperia by 24,21%. Is this a win for Samsing? Not really, as samsung is using super efficient AMOLED screen, xperia does not. And by the way, samsung has an exynos 7880. Lets compare phones with S625, shall we? Like Huawei Nova. It has 3020mAh battery achieving 84 hours. Not good. Any other S625 phone with 5.0 or 5.2 screen? Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (not comparable as it has a much bigger screen)? 4100mAh battery and 119h battery life. Again, not as good as xperia with P20.

AnonD-633729, 07 May 2017Sony is cutting corners to get more profit from blind sony fans. blind sony fans. That's like saying that samsung is good with their bombs, yet people still went for s8. The iphone has the same design since s6 too, still people buy the 6s, 7. Talking about brind fans ha?
The problem with Sony, it seems, is like they keep on giving more and more models of technically the same thing same looks just different insides. It's so confusing. Their strategy is really bad.
AnonD-237381, 07 May 2017Huawei with larger bezels than Sony? In what world are you living?yes Huawei has one of the largest bezels around , maybe you should check few of their latest phones http://www.gsmarena.com/huawei-phones-58.php before makings such ignorant statements again .

Sorry to wake you up there
What the he...where is Sony XZ Compact with same hardware like bigger version ?
stupid design. those sony designers put the 'sony brand' on the top bezel, thats why they make it huge. The bottom bezel is used to balance the top bezel, thats why they also make it huge.
You'll find nothing inside those bezels, just useless empty bezels.
AnonymouseX, 07 May 2017Huh? Kinda weird. Some Chinese phones have small bezels yet I could hardly name any of them ... moreChinese brands, huawei, oppo, vivo, xiaomi or whatever, all have better camera than sony. Sony cameras are crap. They have good sensors but their software is total junk.
