Cired, 28 Aug 2016Mine was defective. I've brought it with technical report that my device is not performing pro... morewish i had bought a defective piece too! this phone comes with pre-installed nightmare.
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.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2016If you are a super fan of SONY;You will know well STAMINA mood It resolves yourcase You have... morei used stamina mode. it last for less than 6 hours. now i'm only waiting for software update. because having a good phone with a terrible battery life is horrible..
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!!!!
AnonD-577665, 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
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2016Z2 or XA please I need your adviceObviously xa z2 is just not for this time and age although I would recommend one plus 2 moto g4 or LG g4

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:)

it is an DEVICE error.. SONY service change NEW XA to you..
It is HUMAN error OR User Fault..SONY service will fix Xa
It is a plain fact..
No need to "blame or post" User Opinion page
User opinion page is mainly for performances; useage and the pros and cons of the composition of softwear & hardwear
..Even iPhone which is produced ONCE a year has DEVICE error or issue
Have a nice times:)
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2016NO problem with XA.. You can find YOUTUBE video reviews that XA has small battery and small b... moreExactly what I am trying to say, 720 p ips lcd with 2300 mah and especially sony smartphone would not be poor efficiency, it is pretty more than average but definitely not poor.
X, 27 Aug 2016Is this XA better or im wait for IFA 2016 cuz this phone so much trouble and problemNO problem with XA..
You can find YOUTUBE video reviews that XA has small battery and small battery life.
... reviewers can't find "any problems and issues"from XA....
SO they search for something for weakness and they find battery at least ON PAPER...
We should think it may hurt our daily use
BUT WE should NOTICE
XA has 720p display and it has NO bloatwear apps...and SONY Own apps are emphasize to use very small amount of battery
MOREOVER QnOvo techs support XA to raise XA's battery life and to last for several years...
So XA is the beautiful curved display phone with excellent battery life
We can "happily" use TWO DAYS for normal use and ONE DAY for extremes use..
Wolfgang, 27 Aug 2016Update to Nougat? Or just software update with Marshmallow?It is system upate from SONY!
SONY confirms Android 7.0 to XA
SO if you are a XA OWNER; Android n 7.0 in coming soon
Now SONY make Android n 7.0 Beta to lagship of SONY smartphone LIKE iphone with iOS beta; if you live in Europe
This Beta helps the stability to update Android n" and gives highest performances to SONY artphones...

Yep the phone looks like a flagship in terms of Design. The phone has a better camera and it's snappy when you're using it. But the very bad thing is. The battery. I charge mine 3 times a day. I'm only using social media. It last for only 3 hrs for every charge. I don't know what happened to xperia. Now I'm planning on what brand to buy next because I don't want Samsung phones. Please Sony. Be back to your old self.
