bought xperia xa.. disappointed. hdr at low light shows blue and red tints. compass not workng. camera switch doesnt work properly.and it produce enormous heat.
I've been waiting for the new Xperias to appear in shops. On line reviews are helpful but do not tell the whole story. Based on previews and reviews I read, I thought I'd go for the XA. Why not the X? The price for one. Also, I didn't think a 23 meg camera was necessary in a phone. I use a proper camera to take photographs, incidentally a Sony. I prefered the XA's more modern styling too. Yesterday, I saw the X and the XA side-by-side in a store. My comments above still stand, mostly. However, the XA screen looks dull in comparison. Perhaps it is not fair to compare an upper-shelve with a mid-range device but the difference in image quality was quite big. Then, I had another look at the camera sample shots here at GSMarena and clearly the X camera wins. So, now I'm off to my bank manager to see whether I can afford the X.
I am using my old Xperia Arc to this day. Still with the original battery and not a scratch on the screen. This is why I decided to stay with Sony. And they made me wait for it, didn't they? But I hope the new stable is as durable. I'd keep the Arc longer but it's not 4G and it has inadequate memory to fit in modern apps.
For those who are saying xperia xa use cheap media take chip,
Go to GSMarena review, u will find that xperia xa's benchmark performance is better thn galaxy j7 2016, a5, a7 2016, moto g4, oppp f1.
Camera is also better thn these devices in terms of details captured, color reproduction, hdr, quality and clarity, noise reduction is also better.
I don't know what people want from this midrange device..
This is best midrange device with a beautiful design.
And sony ui us best in mobile industry.
Who used sony Walkman mobile ph they know what sony is capable actually.
rohilla, 07 Jul 2016Plz tell me friends wich is best vivo v3 or sony xaOh please don't compare vivo with Sony, I'm not saying it's bad but it stands nowhere near Sony.
Osiris, 05 Jul 2016Sony has Led notification on all their phones, they aren't samshitIf you like to have LED notification, just get a Sony. No need to bash other brands.
rohilla, 07 Jul 2016Plz tell me friends wich is best vivo v3 or sony xaGot a lime gold colour for this handphone for a week now. Mid range but extremely good for its price except battery life. You can settle it by having xtra power bank in case you need them or disable apps that are not usefull to save power.

One week so far with this beauty and no regrets. Design wise one of the best looking phones out there, Camera is good if not the best but still can give the flagships a run for their money specially at this price, speed is good although it's mediatek but no flaws, call quality is excellent even at noisy places, battery life ain't that great but not too bad either if you're not a gamer you can still have your XA alive the next day. No fast charging but still charges pretty fast, chose this over A5(2016) and no regrets, made the right choice now my friends who own samsung/iPhones envy my XA :-)
So a little comment from me. The other day I visited a local shop and checked the Xperia XA. It looks like a fairly decent phone for a reasonable price - really nice screen and good camera BUT I noticed that in low light ut produces a little bit more yellowy shots. Also I was a little sceptical about the Mediatek proccesor,but it looks that it runs really smooth.
Enjoy my mini hands-on :)
Actually i want to bought this phone but not fingerprint.....so poor...if got fingerprint it will the best choice...compare huawei p9 lite, maybe huawei will be te best choice more cheaper and more better...also huawei p9 lite got fingerprint also 3000mah battery which could stay more longer.
