This is a good phone but you should know that there are certain loopholes to come across to get the best out of it. Nougat version makes all the Hazzard out of it and make it smooth and easy. Although android 6.0 makes the phone somewhat dumb in few aspects but 7.0 makes it all easy. Frankly it's always good to go for Sony if you know how to tackle it's cons.
I had XA since 2 years up till now, SONY released many software updates .. It's working like a charm due to its category as midrange phone of course
I've had this phone for one year and 3 m onths and the battery has died completely - and it is non-replaceable! Warranty expired, Minimum daily use of the phone. I would NOT buy again!
I'm using this mobile since a year and I liked a lot.. Both cameras are pretty good for the price. This mobile is simple but with a good look even while the material is not premium. I'am an average and sometimes heavy user and yeah, sometimes I need to charge it at midday or at lunch but I'm quite surprised about Sony's battery performance - just 2300 mah and using stamina mode (always on) last more than expected.
I'm pleased with this phone. I was hesitating to buy it or not but after a year I know it was a good choice. Buy it if you want it to social medias and average usage for you daily life. Not recommeded at all if you are gamer lover. You will need more space and better specifications.
I have bought new XA its good now.... Its Showing 7.0 update... Can I upgrade it.... What about battery backup in 7.0
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2018Hi i have been using the Sony xa for 2 years now and have found it a good phone no problems wh... moreI have 10 month using Xperia XA Dual..
Everything is fine, but because it's midrange phone, so I have to adapt its low spec from high spec my Xperia Z3 Compact..
Or maybe this nougat version make its phone a little bit laggy than marshmallow version??

I have sometimes accidentally drop it to floor but still no damage..
BTW I just use TPU clear case for the sake of not being scratch or dent easily..
The performance I feel a little bit laggy because its a midrange phone..
So maybe I will upgrade to X Com

To all who are wondering about this phone here is my personal comprehensive opinion:
It's a great phone, great features for the price - marvelous screen, two great cameras, great build quality, great performance.
I have had issues too and had to visit service. These included a broken screen+unresponsive touch (my fault, the phone bent in my pocket during a concert), broken headphone jack (I see other people with this issue but in my case the jack actually wasn't broken it was stuffed with dust. The repair center just cleaned it and it worked) and there was apparently some sort of motherboard issue which caused it to freeze and boot loop randomly. Apparently the motherboard was faulty and had to be replaced. Luckily, the repair center changed the motherboard, screen and battery (I had no issues, but they still did so, no idea why, probably to extend the phone's life a bit more) and it was all covered by warranty, I didn't pay a single penny more and got a phone that is 90% brand new.
TL;DR Great phone, it may break but all phones do that. No serious issues whatsoever, great value for its price. Although today you are better getting it's grandson, the XA2 which is a similar package but much more modern and with even better value
I bought xperia xa 2 years ago. It's a really good phone overall , but the camera is not that good when there are night lights.
i am a xperia xa user its user friendly...but trust me dont buy it......i have too give it for repairing 4 times ...from the cost i could buy a new cell
I am an average/light user, but I do listen to podcasts a lot, with my in ear headphones.
The phone has been good overall, but I have had to change the 3.5mm jack on the phone 3 times now, and the last time it only worked a month, before breaking again. I have now given up.
Coming from an xperia SP, which lasted me 3 years, I was disappointed about the build quality of this one. It is just too cheaply made, and the plastic frame is too weak. I have had sony and soney ericsson phones for many years, but now I am looking elsewhere to find my next phone.
my phone xa F3111 has problem on touch screen. issue on screen i ghost touch i dont know the problem is..
Hi i have been using the Sony xa for 2 years now and have found it a good phone no problems whatsoever mine still looks like new no scratches front or back i bought a great case easy to get in and out use a screen cover battery lasts a long time great pictures still have a lot of spare space really pleased with it
I read all these opinions with all bad things this phone supposedly have, but I have it for about 1.5 years and never had any on those problems (exept having back panel horrobly scratch while still having case). Also it is cheap, I got brand new for 180 euros (I have F3111)
I've had this phone for a year, and it suits me perfectly. The only problem I had with it was broken screen, but it was my mistake, it dropped out of my pocket on asphalt at the speed of 60 kmh and it still worked perfectly. I was surprised when the screen and the back cover were replaced under waranty. Im sticking with sony😉
