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?

Main disappintments are camera and battery life. But if you're not a camera freak it's ok, battery life is quite disapppointing even when you're not using the phone.

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.

Guys any solutions pls give me.
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.
