Sankalpa, 26 Jan 2017What is better sony xperia m5 or sony xperia xa?Xa should be fine!
flargon, 04 Apr 2017Utter junk, got mine in Feb 2016, its been back for repair 3 times. Best avoided.That is exactly what is happening to me now. I had to complain to the carrier. I hope the manufacturer stops trying to fix it and just exchange it. Worst experience with cell phones so far.
I don't know about yall but mi Sony is litt!!!! The front cam is like i took the photo with professional Nikon/Canon. Fast, in my hands all the time, battery fairly good. Best than most of smartphones nowadays. Got it brand new for 170 pounds back in September 2015, i'd change it only for Iphone 7 cuz aint no better than it.

jem, 13 Jan 2017battery only 2600mah with a ram 3gb. not a good match. it will drained the battery in a few hrs.But fast charging , problem is sudden death and need to connect to power bank or charger to kick start. I am taking time to learn technic of macro shooting.
I am Using this Phone since 7 Months and I don't feel such things. One of the best phone ever. Best camera result, Battery performance is good too and The best thing is its waterproof. :') 9/10
One more bad comment in ocean of comments. I buy phone on my mobile operator and guess what? Problems? Yup... Overhating too much, Restarts like crazy, Cant check my IMEI, some app's stopped working. And they dint want to replace my phone after 2 weeks of usage. After big complains, they use my phone to check what is problem... So shame for sony... Problem is in Mediatek, nothing else. Phone is very good on list, but really bad in practice...
