OK so you told all the issues were solved and so maybe I'll have 2 more screen hours like Samsung with n? great! I will let you know if it's true! Sorry if you didn't like the way I responded you but it's the second time you call people complaining here fool not smart enough to use Sony and that's disrespectful and untrue. You have to be extremely careful to have a decent battery life : no games, low brightness, data and Wi-Fi off whenever you're not using them!? it's a smartphone and everybody now communicates with social media more than calls and messages! so it will be like having your phone off.., don't use 4g kills the battery, etc). People of course hate that and definitely don't expect it from a 2016 phone and also knowing Sony announced a 2 days battery for this phone and I remember perfectly that sticker in the screen saying that when I bought it!) A good one yes agree the camera is great no complaints but another bad the ram administration dude.. isn't good 5 or more apps running and they restart everytime you switch into the others although is a 2 GB ram phone..
I envy you, your love for Sony is as great as your patience but don't expect everybody to have it. Some of us tried different companies and compare and the balance is poor. All good just different opinions. Good night from Argentina !

Most 'fails' were solved by Sony and if you were smart enough you were flashing your phone to the latest nougat firmware, while not losing time responding me like this!

After using alcohol (perfume), the hard stains go away and my camera image quality became great again! Agreed with the toothpaste though, dont ever use it as the lens tint will come out and can cause very white overexposed images. Just make sure rub it gently using alcohol, dont force it.

1. If the lens cover is not badly damaged use LCD screen cleaners (some glass lens cleaners are also great). Caution is needed using alcohol cleaner for plastic covers because it can do more damage (sadly XA have plastic glass cover for camera lens)!
2. If the lens cover is badly damaged/scratched you need to use also a special cleaner and also a best quality scotch band too. Never use toothpaste or something like that as many careless youtubers do.
So take care!

The Nougat upgrade for XA device is great, but has 2 firmware versions. One is good one is not good. Never forget: Sony is for Smart's!!!
I am interesting to buy sony xperia xa because of its design and you will get the latest android update eventhough you bought your phone 2 years ago. Like my friend, he has sony xperia z2 (bought on 2014) and he did upgrade to android 6.0 but that was last year when i met him which is 2016. I read the issue mostly about battery and android 7.0 update. Is it true when you update to android 7.0 it will have problems? Or maybe you need to restart your phone after you updated to newest android os after it has rebooted?
Now my xperia xa is making me crazzy.. now its too slow day by day after updation of nougot and most of application getting hanged or crashed while using... really now i am totally fed up with this xa phone... in starting i am happy with my phone but now ... its too lagging

Gently rub your lens for a couple minutes until stains removed. Its a 1 year phone, hard stains likely stays in your camera lens and rub with wet cloth (water) wont remove it. Use alcohol.
Borrowed my sister cell phone a Samsung a3 2016 and check the battery pic I posted! Incredible is the same than xa. Somebody should admit there's a bug in our phone
