With NEW system update; Battery life increases largely:)
TWO days for normal and ONE day for extreme users...
XA is perfectd with updates
I brought the phone coz ever since I brought my c3, I am a huge fan of Sony... And whoever says the camera is bad doesn't know how to take a pic.. Coz this is the best cam you'll get in a phone for this price.
But there are many probs too.. Heating is a big issue which I found when I play this game called castle clash. I used to play with my c3 too but never had so much heating prob...
Battery clearly speaking sucks.. I charge my phone in morning, afternoon and at night.. And I am the guy who charges phone only when battery is lower than 15%..
Its just been 6 days since I started using phone and I dunno if I like it or have a prob with it...
It's sleek, cam is best, I can handle with one hand and type this whole thing with one hand... Did I say cam is best?? It looks good, it's light weight, and ya I love Sony features compared to All others.... Heating can be still managed but battery is bad... I think I'll still use it for a while
Of course XA is the beautiful edge to edge curved-display smartphone.....
XA's Design Wise is unique... NO PHONE can rival XA's seamless design and inspirations
Some people blame XA's battery without having XA in hand
THE FACT they didn't know is SONY has used Qnovo tech for battery'long last and to stand many years
"people blaming to XA battery and people returning to sony service a few days" are NOT real OWNERS of XA..
They make false story or drama:)
Really XA' owners are very satisfied with SONY fantastic CAMERA tech and amazing features
XA's Battery life is good BUT not excellent
TWO days for Normal users
ONE day for gamers and heavy users
It is the most common in average phones such as iphone 6s and s7 and htc 10(These phones need to charge once a day if you use havily and even encouter Heat issue)
The advantage of XA battery is "Qnovo battery tech I mentioned above" which we can't find in "all other brands flagship phones".........
Feel it yourself with XA or XA Ultra..
Good news for all xa lover chk the GSMARENA battery test endurance rating increased 40 hrs to 54 hrs, after update.

Said the camera is 13mp, but when I take picture the quality look like 5mp, especially at night, so really bad.
The front camera also bad, said its 8 mp but its quality same as 2mp,the battery also run so fast, I charge till 100%,but in just 10 minute already become 90% although I just use it to try the camera 😭
Just bought it yesterday but im so disappointed,😭😭😭
I'm so regret buying this phone 😭😭😭
I want to return to the store

The battery dry so fast
Even i just use it for camera
The camera night performance so bad..looklike 5mp camera!
The front camera also really bad!
Im so regret to buy this phone :(
It look nice fr the outside but so bad inside!
Don't use phones to play games all day. The battery will last much longer if you use a phone as a phone.
Jjhk, 25 Aug 2016I just bought this phone also even exchange the handset but still the same problem the battery... moreI have also brought XA. ..lots of problem are there. Specially Less internal storage..out of the box u will get only 7 GB & u can't convert your SD card into internal storage . 70% Battery drains under normal usage within 5-6 hrs. Sony has tarnished its image completely by launching this Xperia XA dual model.
I just bought this phone also even exchange the handset but still the same problem the battery life time drain and running low I on my phone for almost one hours it drop almost 20℅ I will bring to service cetre please don't get this phone sure if not your have a big headache for it
nba 2k16, 23 Aug 2016Good day! Does nba 2k16 can be play in this unit with high setting. thanksIt does but it lags badly if you play NBA 2k in its highest graphic setting. I normally out it in medium. My Nexus 6p also lags in the highest graphic setting on nba2k
Bought this phone couple of days ago and decided to return it mainly cause of its poor battery performance. I had to recharge it almost twice a day, with normal use of social media apps and photo apps and a little Pokemon Go, just for the fun of it! I wish I had read this forum before placing an order, however, I think I had a narrow escape since I reserved the right to return it and I'm planning on getting a Huawei P9 Lite instead, whose 3000mAh will have to last longer than the 2300 mAh of the Xperia XA. There was also some delay at times. The best attribute of this phone I think is its looks, and unfortunately you can't have both looks and performance in one single body. My advice to prospective buyers would be to simply stay away from it. It is so annoying to have to charge your phone twice a day and still not be sure it's gonna last.
Nak, 22 Aug 2016How is the gaming perfomance of this phone... Plzz help megameplay is good, trust me. it will perform great but sadly, a huge battery drainer. not recommended for playing games.
