You will get about 9 hours on such normal activities and about 10 hours max. But this phone gets charged quickly! I have no problem using this phone. So, go for it & cheers!
I'm currently using a Sony Xperia P since 4 years ago. I'm considering to change into a new phone soon and this XA is one of my consideration.
I've tested this phone and it feels very natural and comfortable to me due to my familiarity with Sony's interface for the past 4 years. I'm not the kind of person who likes to try out new things or adapt to something new. Size is also matters to me. I hope to keep it small instead of going anything large like 5.5 inch screen.
As for usage, I don't play games on my phone. Rarely use it to take photos either as I often carry a point&shoot camera with me. What I do mostly would be basic phone calls, text messaging, web browsing, playing music via headphones, using the alarm, calendar, calculator and that is about it. I actually care more about audio quality than everything else here. Battery life should be fine here as I came from Xperia P which sort of gets one of the worse battery endurance rating (29 hours) from GSMArena reviews.
So, now I'm thinking, should I go for XA or get some other phones?

Battery backup is almost below average, it drains quite fast. But then, it gets charged in no time. I would not suggest this phone to game lovers, especially for people who wants to try out Pokemon on this phone. I'm a moderate user(i do normal activities like whatsapping, browsing, listening to music, calls, etc.). Standby time on such activities last for about 9 hours, and 10 hours max.
I really like this phone and I would like to buy it, but my only question is how long does the battery last while playing Pokemon GO or while doing simple tasks messaging?
Could have beaten j7,a3(6) with a better battery backup,front flash,accurate camera

Even my 2.5 year xperia m don't hangs and freeze like u are saying,.
With super light ui and home launcher app and pretty decent 2ghz Octa core mediatek, 2 gb ram, 47000 antutu score, xa is a great performer.
So don't troll if u can't afford it.
This phone is nothing but an eye candy. you can never get 24 hours of battery life on this phone. It's hangs, it freezes, the app drawer wont just slide down, the camera sucks, image quality sucks so bad. You can get a better deal from any mid-range device that this, for 13K PHP, it's not worth it.
I agree,i have the same problem,just picked it up,lady at the store said something about it has many apps,also camera at top heats up when shooting videos,will let you know outcome when its back,returned it to the store within 7 day period to have it checked out.

TeD, 27 Jul 2016Buy Samsung, you can transfer apps to memory card on most of their phones, if not all...Same goes with Sony also, you can move apps to SD card, then why buy those ugly looking phones.

Go to settings, apps, choose the app you wanna move, click storage and change it from internal to SD card, simple. But the entire app doesn't move only a part of it will.
Waruna, 27 Jul 2016amazing battery life time. i use my charger two time for a week I cannot belive that. I bought my Xperia XA 4 days ago and I can get barely 24 hours with STAMINA mode on. And that's on stand-by almost all the time. I have WiFi on all the time and nothing more that could drain battery. I'm thinking my device has fault battery. Anyone have similiar expirience? My old Sony Xperia T3 holds battery longer and I've been using it for 1,5 years. All my Android devices were Sony and I am very pleased with Sony devices but this is dissapointing.

I had been an avid fan of Sony Ericsson until it was taken over by Sony. I never had a problem with files being transferred from Internal storage to External storage (SD card). I speak here on behalf of the other users that experience this kind of problem. Please never compare Sony to other Mobile brands. Let us focus on Sony brand only. If that is your opinion, I can't contest to it. I am posting my opinion for a SOLUTION and NOT to worsen the problem. Let us help one another here. Thank you :)
