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
xa, 30 Aug 2016~9GBU can get 7 GB left out of the box. Only Android system of this device consumed 5.5 GB. U alwaz fell lack of internal storage coz u can't use ur SD card as internal storage,which is a valuable feature in "M".

See GSMarena endurance setting its increased 40 hrs to 54 hrs, so plz stop trolling
xa, 31 Aug 2016I have nothing against xa, indeed i have one because on paper its a beast. I'm not saying the ... moreWhy can you say that XA battery is small??
3000mah or 4000mah is fully BIG..??
Samsung note7 with 3500 mah battery is impressive AT LEAST ON PAPER......
BUT in praical; it sucks battery more quckly..as note7 has 2K..1440p 5.7" display..always ON feature
Some bloatwears sucks note7 battery and
Touchwiz and 4g RAM also use more battery
So 3500mah is not enough to manage note7 even ONE DAY..note7 has quick charge but quick suck
Conclusion; Resolution is a BIG DEAL insucking no matter what battery capacity has....
XA is a compact 5 incher.. and..has a resolution of merely 720p...and less bloatwears and SONY manage to use less battery in SONY apps & feature and remember TURN ON smart cleaner via setting
Of course: XA performs with very good battery life...for extreme use you need to charge ONE time a DAY
FOR NORMAL you will get "1.5 or 2 DAYS"
Forget about some blames and feel XA

TWO DAS for normal..
You keep pointing reviews and keep following reviewers point of view.....
This shows that you are NOT a XA owner and..
Without having XA... How you charge battery three times a day..?
To charge your crappy laggy samsung phones or chinese phones?:)?
anonymous, 30 Aug 2016wish i had bought a defective piece too! this phone comes with pre-installed nightmare.I returned mine too, i bought it in the philippines. First i brought it to sony service center glorieta' then they monitored it for 2 days. They provided me with a jo that my phone is okay. The software is okay but the battery easily drains.
Then i returned mine. Its time consuming but it is better than to charge this crap 3 times a day.

I'm not saying the display is bad nor the camera. Yep its good, you can even watch an hd movie in it. But the bad thing is you can't finish a movie without charging. I'm not promoting anybody. I said, by just adding around 40 dollars that is what you can get. And on those price range, those are the phone that they can "CONSIDER". I'm just warning the people that before they buy this phone. It should be "UPDATED" and make sure it can has a better battery life.

Why are you saying that xa is good, xa is fantastic and xa has good battery life. Are you a sales agent?? The real xa user knows the truth. Too much for this man!
Come on guys, look at gsm battery rating, and stop trolling.

You says based on just reviewers' postings.. "lacking real user experience"...perhaps you are NOT a real user of 'fantastic XA'
In the end you try to promote 'laggy' samsung phones and low quality chinese brands
It is just an UNhonest opinion:)

Just an honest opinion. This phone looks good i'll give it a 9 for design. It looks better than flagship phone from other brands. The camera performs well for the price range, I'll give it a 7. But a big no no for its battery. The 2300 mah sounds good because of the sony's reputation of its operating system. My old sony phones runs for a whole day with just 1800 mah of battery. But this one is different, it runs for 3 to 5 hrs for daily use. 3 hrs in normal mode while 5 hrs in stamina mode.
My kind suggestion is, if the sony is truly working for the update, then buy this phone. because it's a decent phone in its price range. Just wait for the update because having a phone charged for 2 - 3 times a day is a big stressor. Or you may consider samsung c5. by just adding around 40 dollars. You get a phone with a 1.2mm slimmer metal body, +130ppi screen, +16GB memory +2GB on RAM + 3mp on camera + a fingerprint sensor
You may also consider, moto g4, samsung j7 2016, lg nexus 5x, huawei p9 lite.

Using xperia xa for past one month... It is an excellent divice with excellent camera... The autofocus on back camera is absolute wonder and also the front camera produces great selfies... The batter life is not the best but its promising... With stamina mode it gives a complete day usage with ease... Viewing angles and display are fascinating as u expect from sony... All and all I give a thumbs up for the design as it has a unique design and no other phones design gh can be compared with this one.. And the phone is well supported by a much capable software.. Go for It guyz..ignore negative reviews.. Its a best phone at this price.. U will not regreat!!!!
The Android fanatic, 28 Aug 2016Try installing battery doctor it won't make it great but it will help If the problem is from the software then the battery doctor has nothing to do, anyway i recommend cm battery another new application from cheetah mobile better than battery doctor, but like I said if it is a software issue then it has nothing to do.
