Araceli, 17 Aug 2017Two days? Maybe we have a different phone mine never lasted that and I'm not a heavy user don'... moreYes it does last 2 days on moderate usage. The thing is that I don't leave functions or apps enabled and running if I don't use them. I never leave the wifi or the 4g enabled if I don't need it, nor I keep apps like facebook messanger or viber running.
What I do is reading a few articles and news in the morning, afternoon and at night, checking my facebook page from time to time, play some game for 15 minutes until I get out of bed in the morning. I make a few phone calls during the day and that must be it. The brightness level of the display is about 70%. At the end of the day the battery is at about 60%, could drop to 50% during the night and it's good to go for the next day.
I believe that most people complaining of the battery are just used to leave their "things" enabled and running all the time - wifi, gps, 4g, facebook app, viber app, etc and probably are keeping the brightness at 100% all the time. In that case it's quite normal for the battery to drop down quicker, it's like that on most devices. A friend of mine has a phone 3 times the price of the xperia xa and is complaining that the battery drains for a day, he keeps everything on and enabled. The batteries of these phoens are not yet designed to last very long. This will change in time.
I love my Xperia XA, its the best device(after my Zenfone 3) i have ever owned.
Its like much enjoyable. I clean it every night,i make sure it is charging properly, i wake up in the middle of the night just to unplug it.
I mainly use it for daily social needs and other utilities, i listen alot of music on spotify and have the same music app with my songs.
I always take care of it, i make sure that if i encounter any issues, i resolve on the spot so i dont get frustrated.
I love sony, for sure i will get a sony device.
As i mentionned before, yall owners should discharge the device once a month to 0%, plug it WITHOUT booting it up and wait until the battery shows 100% before booting it up.
Doing this, will help alot the battery life.
mmm... device, muchos beautiful.

I've noticed that the majority of the comments in this page under most of the phones are complaints. So I'll try to be objective here:
I bought Xperia XA one month ago. It's a good phone in general, I like it.
-Great elegant design
-Storage is enough
-Battery is decent (although lots of people are complaining of it), it lasts 1 day on heavy usage and 2 days on moderate usage. Just like every other phone on the price range.
-The call quality is not great, it's average at best, but far from great.
-Battery is not replacable, but that's not that big of a deal.
It's a good phone, good brand, it's worth it.
is vithursan, 06 Aug 2017why this phone sometime struck??? cant't work this touch?You didn't try stuck that did you, well anyway try touch the finger with your screen
My XA resigned after 9 months. It does not charge or turn on anymore. 280Â€ wasted.

I always have low compass accuracy on Google maps, even after I try to calibrate compass, I get the same results. Is anyone else having the same issue or is there anything I can do to fix the problem?

Anonymous, 15 Aug 2017is xperia xa dual worst than xa single sim Only with a small difference at battery backup.

I hope GsmArena will let me post pictures that blow your sweet personal taste of S7! Not to mention its price tag: 1 S7 = 3 XA. Bad business with this Samsung!
Sonyuser85, 15 Aug 2017Camera for me it's most important, I can have results better than Samsung S7. Awesome device!Is ok to love something. But not to lie about it. I had 3 sony xperia XA ( changed one because of bad battery, one for dead touchscreen, and now i have this one) and camera is not that good, on any of those 3. My wife have p9 lite, and her pics are better than mine.

My XA takes murky, lifeless and overexposed pics and after nougat it got worse. Maybe you're lucky... Can you share your pics or a link?
