The Only, 20 May 2017Samsung isn't perfect.Yeah, I know that Touchwiz UI has more features than Sony Crappy UI. ... moreYou are comparing a midrange with Samsung flagship? S8 doesn't have physical buttons even. Maybe your usage behavior made your phone slow, it's a problem with all smartphones. Samsung flagship phones are highly optimized since S6 edge and doesn't lag even after 2 years, I'm an S6 edge user and used it till now tho I also bought iPhone 7 but it could never become my primary phone due to everything it lacks. TouchWiz lag is a term used by Samsung haters, same haters were saying S8 camera is the worst but the blind shootout results covered everything, Samsung is the best in performance too!. Well S8 is...

I use Samsung Galaxy A5 2017, it might be midrange phone, but that phone is laggy, and I hate the button on the phone(I love the on screen button).
I choose A5 2017 over XA1 because it has more feature than XA1 ,this is the reason I buy A5 2017. But I realize that my choice is wrong. I should buy the Xperia Z5 but it has Micro USB. Xperia X was my first choice but it is more expensive(Malaysia)
So my point here is Samsung phone is laggy. But I like the water resistance body, fingerprint scanner, design, fast charge and AOD(I love AOD) feature on A5 2017, which are missing on Xperia XA1(exclude AOD and design).
Ali Bashir, 19 May 2017That was cool XD. Because she said we need to respect samsung for bringing the best smartphone, but why she disrespect sony,we can't respect samsung if samsung fanboys disrespect us or sony ,am i right?

You mean the tiny battery despite the large volume of the device? Do you mean the middling RAM that won't age well especially as most apps can positively eat as much as 1GB? Or maybe you mean the sealed -always on- battery scheme that Sony introduced to the android world?
Those are not hate, Sony has been like this for years and unfortunately only got worse. I have yet to hear a good reason why is this phone is it a good phone. The only one that makes relatively sense is that people like its look, everything else makes completely no sense, like the invocation to authority ("Sony is a good company" ... well no, Sony has actually made many bad products), or constructing "facts" about its various aspects (many of which were shot down by the blind camera test of gsmarena).
Really try to make an honest assessment of the phone. The only reason to buy this over most of *every* other phone is because you're biased towards it ... honestly. And this is not a hate, I just see a device with almost zero good values getting unearned adulation ... at some point people get spiteful when they see such a behavior...
Damn, so much hate. I'm getting this phone regardless of the bad cam. Everything else suits my needs

Just last year they were thinking of closing shop, it won't surprise me if they do eventually ... They're not even top 10 on world sales. They're like a tiny player that only a specific part of the market (for some unknown reason) think highly of them.
maybe phonearena and gsmarena will give bad result in testing this phone camera. but sony never failed on dxo mark chart. you can not pay dxo mark!!
