This is a good phone, the only problem you will encounter is the battery. When using facebook it will drain for about 3 hrs 18 mins while 5hrs 28 mins when you are in stamina mode. All in all its a good phone in its price range.
The good thing about it is it gains a, 100 percent charge for 1 hr 15 mins if in airplane mode. 1 hr and 48 mins in normal mode. Maybe it has the best camera and screen brightness compared to its competitors. If you are a gamer don't buy this phone. Get the samsung J7 2016.This phone is best suited for girls that are light users.
If this has a better battery life, then this is the beast. As a 6 day xa user maybe i just paid the right price.

I turn on the flashlight bec flash (sudden light) cant correct the color. I know two other xa users who have the same prob here in the philippines. During daylight its good but at lowlight, yea im like a clueless monkey shifting angles if not bec of the flashlight its crap. And yes no nightmode scene for me. Always withnthe flashlight
I hope sony will release a full HD version of this next year with 5.2" display with the same thin bezels. That will be a nice replacement for my LG G4 Beat.
Having bought this phone is like falling in love with the wrong girl. Cheers to the horrendous battery backup from Sony!

Nak, 22 Aug 2016How is the gaming perfomance of this phone... Plzz help meI have the phone and gaming is awesome! Dead trigger 2 for example runs really smooth all the time and loading times are really short too. In the review you can read that considering the XA has a 720p screen instead of 1080p, the phone yields the same performance as the flagship Xperia X. I can confirm this entirely
I am very disappointed with XA. I am a fan of xperia when it comes to camera. Images on the back cam produces gray color instead of purple and pink during lowlight. I use camera apps from playstore to improve lighting but still it cant produce a purple and pink photo! Imagine a perfectly ash gray grape! Was very excited and was waiting for it to be released and bought one when its already available, only to find out it is not worth it. I think its a hardware problem.

I heard that sony xa battery capacity can only support for 3 hours???it this true?and at the end many people say that the sony xa low battery capacity can be overcome by applying"smart power saving option" which is an automatic power booster...does this really work effectively???
can you play nba 2k16 with high settings on it. need your opinion. thanks

Renesis, 19 Aug 2016The problem with stamina mode is, the WiFi keeps disconnecting every time I lock the screen. I... moreu should read the stamina mode function first.. It says " Extended standby Saves power when the screen is off by temporarily disabling wifi and mobile data.most applications will be inactive"..that why your wifi is off..
I received a gio sim (thru referal customer care service) but no network signal is displayed. But that sim works on sumsung handsets. While searching for network gio as home network is displayed. But if it is selected than sim not registered is displayed. Please help
I cannot say i'm unhappy with phone. There's some issues. About the battery life, yes, isn't the greatest performance, but, when I bought this phone, I did check the battery capacity, so, I was aware about this. The phone heats up. Usualy that appens when I play games like Lara Croft Relic Run. Finally, once the phone just crashed. Did not respond at all. To restart it I did press at the same time Vol+ & Power Button for 10sec. Never did it again. Despiste os this issues, i'm pleased with the phone overall.
