mgr, 31 Jul 2016I will buy this phone tomorrow. My brother wants me to buy a different brand but then I trust ... moreYes. Buy Sony phone once and you won't look back to Samsung, iPhone or other Chinese craps. I bought Z3 and it is superb phone even in 2016.
SONY is good brand for all electronic gadgets. I purchase SONY XPERIA phone and it is give me good experiance to use phone. :)
Max Mustermann, 31 Jul 2016Guys do yourself a favor and get a nexus 5x for the same price.The thing with the Nexus 5x is, its memory storage capacity cannot be expanded. 32gb max is rather limited nowadays. Perhaps it can be enough by today's standards but I'm not so sure for the next 2 or 3 years if one decides to use the phone for a longer period of time.
Best way to save battery is hibernate apps.
Download du battery saver and hibernate (deep sleep) apps which are using more battery.
I did it on my xperia m and get 2-3 hour more battery life.
But only drawback of hibernating app is you can't get push notifications, means when you will on your mobile data u will not get mag from whats app automatically until you open whats app.
But it's quite useful for many others app which consumes more battery in background like flipkart, uc browser, paytm, amazon., mx player and other downloaded apps.
These app will work when u open these app
So guys use it.
I will buy this phone tomorrow. My brother wants me to buy a different brand but then I trust Sony even thought this is going to be my first Sony phone. I always saw comments about Sony phones durability and its camera. I'm not a gamer and I'm just using my phone for fb, IG, camera, watching drams, movies and reading document. So still, I think this is at least a good phone for that?

2. Camera superb outdoors in daylight, both front & rear but really struggles in low lights.
3. Phone performance is great, no lags or hang, pretty smooth.
4. Call quality doesn't disappoint at all, loud & clear even at crowded places.
Dear xa users
Who are using xperia xa Plz tell me-
1- display quality and display color, doest it look hd display?
2- camera quality both front and back in day light and low light.
3- phone performance, does it lag or hangs or pretty smooth?
4- call quality for both side is it loud and clear?
I am waiting for true opinion
Renesis, 31 Jul 2016To be honest, the price of XA is already the limit of my budget. As good as how much better X ... moreI hope sony will launch another model of xa or x.
That's why I am waiting till nov and dec thn I will buy xa or another latest model of xa
Then I think Z5 Compact is overly priced in Philippines. More than two times the price of XA. In Malaysia, it is officially priced at RM1899 (22100 php).
Renesis, 31 Jul 2016X-Performance is not available in Malaysia either. At first, I did thought of getting Z3 or Z3... moreHI SOnny.
when you release the xperia x performance in the pilippines?
please reply asap. wee'ere waiting that unit.
ej, 30 Jul 2016Yeah. Z-Series is done already. Welcome to the X-Series. They really rocked this year. Too bad... moreX-Performance is not available in Malaysia either. At first, I did thought of getting Z3 or Z3+ which seemed to be better than XA in terms of specs. But now, a lot of retailers seemed to have stopped selling those two phones. Now, the closest Z series to XA in terms of price would be the Z5 Compact but that is like RM800 (around 9300 Philippine Peso) ($198 US Dollar) more than the XA. Can't really go for that.

As good as how much better X is compared to XA, the price of X is like more than double the price of XA in my location. Unfortunate thing is, I'm a full time university student and I don't have a proper flow of income yet for now. So, I can't really go for X at this time.
Now with the recent leaked images of Sony's new flagship that is about to be announced soon, I'm thinking should I hold back and see if they will announce any other mid range units that is better but similarly priced with XA.
Renesis, 30 Jul 2016That is my feelings for this phone as well when I tested it yesterday. The design of the phone... moreYeah. Z-Series is done already. Welcome to the X-Series. They really rocked this year. Too bad, X-Performance is not availanle here in the Philippines... :(

Bought the XA but I wasn't happy with the battery life as it was quite disappointing. As far as camera is concerned it's great outdoors but mediocre indoors & in low light conditions. So I switched to Xperia X which is superb in everything, in fact a complete smartphone in all aspects.
Ej, 30 Jul 2016Hey. Sony Xperia XA is Great. You will Love It!!!That is my feelings for this phone as well when I tested it yesterday. The design of the phone makes it easy for me to hold it despite it being much larger than my current Xperia P. The 5 inch display is almost the whole size of my Xperia P. Yet I feel natural when using it and this really gives me a good impression for this phone. Built quality feels nice to me as well.
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2016XA is one of the sexiest phone available right now. Main disappintments are camera and battery... moreNot really a true camera freak but I do take a lot of photos occasionally. Just not with the phone as I have better camera to do the job. I've also come to accept that there is not really much you can do with a phone's camera compared to a real camera. The phone camera for me now is just to take random photos if I did not bring my camera. Anyway, I'm guessing that the camera here is still an upgrade that is far ahead of my old 8mp camera in my Xperia P.
So, the battery life is that bad even when the phone is left in idling? I've read some people commenting about a recent update that manage to solve battery power issues. For my current Xperia P, I charge it for like every 1 and a half days on average use. The battery capacity for Xperia P is at 1300mAh and I'm quite sure the lifespan had already been reduced since I have been using it for 4 years. I can still live with this kind of battery life, so I guess the XA should be better than this isn't it? It can't be performing worse than a 1300mAh battery powered phone can it?
