I had this phone and he was ALMOST perfect. Awesome building quality, well quality of the calls, very handle-good size, nice camera,very quick charging, smooth and fast. The bad things was the heating problem on the back side. But the worst thing was the feeling in my hands during use- strong numbness after just 5 min of internet browsing or calling. Test it before you gonna buy.
Any one is facing color fade issue of back panel with lime gold and rose gold. Because store manager of coma telling me that sony have been discontinued both color for time being because both color of xa facing color fade (patch) issue on back panel
Rasmus, 31 Aug 2016You own one? I really want to buy one, the phone is awesome but I'm worried about the batt... morei don't recommend buying xa.. the phone (xa) was really good but the battery really drains fast. it gives me a lot of hassle on returning the phone.. going back and forth to sony center for it to be checked. they have the os updated but it didn't change a thing about the battery problem. then it was replaced with a new xa but the problem still exist. so now my refund is being processed. save yourself from all the hassle.. it is not worth it..
Guys, we warned you regarding xa.
If Sony does not provide an update then, don't believe that it can last for 2 days or even a day.
but if you aren't believing us, then go buy one for yourself and let us see who's telling the truth.
at least we made an effort to warn you, because we know how it feels to put your hard earned money to waste.
After all, life is full of choices, so choose wisely.

I really want to buy one, the phone is awesome but I'm worried about the batt... moreNow Let's talk about battery tips.....
You have to disable some google features you do not use
Some chinese apps and some live wallpapers are sucking battery and perhaps virus!
You should use bidefender antivirus and also use cluful from bidefender..
Don't use tool box apps.. as XA has smart cleaner via setting
Hardly used apps are backed up by SONY officsl back up feature in order to install when you need to use them
You should SONY apps that emphasize to use a little battery and Big quality
For eg. Sony weather app..Sony calender and so on
Occasionally; you can use stamina but a little bit delay in some internet apps...
You should use SONY high class SD card for best audio quality and photo and video quality..
Wish have a good time with XA

I really want to buy one, the phone is awesome but I'm worried about the batt... moreYes; I am
My XA runs smoothly in daily use......
CameraS are really really NICE!
In manual mood..
you put ISO 400 or 100 in lowlight here a little bit slow in shutter speed
Totally dark..put highest ISO
And remember to decrease ISO to average between100 and 400
Manual photos are very impressive
Battery life is OK for ONE and half day in using
For normal use..longer than I can say
No lags in gaming and multitasking process
As you know..No phone can beat XA' seamless design
My XA is lime gold that attracts most people around me and is recognized WoW SONY:)
Guys guys guys, why are you doing this, you sound it like you own one of competitors companies, didn't you see gsm battery rating? It is average 720p + 2300mah = average battery life, stop trolling.
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2016Why can you say that XA battery is small??
3000mah or 4000mah is fully BIG..??
Samsung note7... moreYou own one?
I really want to buy one, the phone is awesome but I'm worried about the battery..
Any other tips on how to make it last should i buy it?
Also do you know any other problems with the phone?
.., 31 Aug 2016wow what a big increase?? 40 - 54hr rating. my j7 2016 last for up to 10 to 12 hrs on daily us... moreKeep laughing with 101 hr endurance rating,
But what about lagy ui of Samsung, lesser camera capability and less attractive design,
U guys are trolling nonsense just for small bettery life of xa, and u can live with lagy ui and oversaturated colors of camera.
Grow up man.
Guys, it is how you use your mobile phone properly. My Sony XPERIA XA is working fine. If battery life is concern, always check your usages, remove open apps, activate (always on) stamina mode, turn off wifi and location. A friendly reminder, if you're a gamer, buy your own power bank and use it anywhere you go. Stop complaining about the battery life. Simple problem with VERY SIMPLE solution...

Ghost, 31 Aug 2016Here in Malaysia if ur phone defective people cant give ur money back or refund..they repaired... morewe're not that lucky, here in philippines. I've gone back and forth to the service centers for 5 days. i cried in tears before i got a refund of an ''allegedly damaged unit"
but the truth is all units are facing the same problem. simple os update can't fix it.
Here in Malaysia if ur phone defective people cant give ur money back or refund..they repaired it instead refund ur money..so lucky for ur country because they refund ur money.
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2016how many days or weeks your phone before you return it to them??, coz mine, they just repair i... moreit about 4-5 days when i had it checked then after having the copy of their technical report i return it to have my refund. The manager at sony center at sm north agreed to give my money back the phone is really defective and it can't be fixed by simple updating the os.. i had my os updated yet the battery still drains fast.
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2016For those who also bought defective xa phones you can have a refund.. I had a money back for m... moreEvery phone production has error
Even iphone(produced ONCE a YEAR) has production errors
So Apple confirms faulty and defective iphones
In the same ways ther are defective or faulty XA
In our country: SONY service change faulty or defectve ones with NEW XA..
Every phone service is the same
It is a COMMON case
Reember User opinion page is to show the performance of XA and share experiences
Not for service case
It is for real USERS of XA:)
.., 31 Aug 2016wow what a big increase?? 40 - 54hr rating. my j7 2016 last for up to 10 to 12 hrs on daily us... moreClearly: you are a samsung j7 user
You creat Fake story as if you were a XA user..
And with NO user experience to XA you say Fake story of charging hree imes a day
j7 can't beat XA in every bit of design..camera ..performance..even battery
j7 has low quality and poor camera is like a 360 camera with yellow skin tone
Happily stay in your sluggsh pages of samsung
This is a PREMIUM users of SONY's XA
[deleted post]how many days or weeks your phone before you return it to them??, coz mine, they just repair it. i said i want to change my phone to a new one and willing to add but they said they will just repair it because it's under warranty...

See GSMarena endurance setting its increas... morewow what a big increase?? 40 - 54hr rating. my j7 2016 last for up to 10 to 12 hrs on daily use with 101hr endurance rating. But this phone is claiming 2 days battery life with just a 54 hr rating?? come on sony. Hahaha
For those who also bought defective xa phones you can have a refund.. I had a money back for my xa for its battery only last for 3-4 hours. I had a complete technical report done by sony center and they agree to return my money for selling a defective phone
