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.

SO 2300mah is big enought for 720p beautiful curved-screen 5-inch display
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.

Where is the update 7N Plz make it Long lasting battery after update like c3

It resolves yourcase
You have to disable in "setting>app some google apps you do not use
And you also turn ON smart cleaner in setting..
You should avoid chinese apps
And also UNSTALL "apps to access message" that you seldom used
YOU also use SONY offical BACKUP feature to backup some hardly-used apps....and so you can happily install when you wat to USE them......
This way You increase your XA battery to THREE DAYS FOR normal use..
BUT extreme use lasts for ONE DAY:)
