The special features of this phone are the hybrid autofocus camera as in the z5 and the slim width like a 4.7inch. Or else must well buy the old model m5. I hope sony will make a even compact phone using mtk p10. The snapdragon processor was a crap from z1 to z5. It will hang or restart once overheated.
Why do people thinks? This is expensive
For 299 euros for me thats very decent
The only mid-range with that premium looking,
Its performance is pretty good for this device so why worry?
And for the people who thinks this is expensive
So go buy your chinese high end phones!! With ugly design
And doesn't last for years!! Maybe 2 years! Or samsung mid-rangers with great price great specs but does not make you feel good i got an galaxy j7 and the camera!!!! Aarrrgghhh
Disappoint me! And while in the xperia x launch i try to compare j7 13mp to XA's 13mp
And the XA did not disappoint me!!!
The great phone brand but 3Gb ram is nyc nd bettry is 3300Mh nd camera flash
Amarinder Singh, 30 May 2016Rs12500/- is exact price which can be paid for Dual sim version. Moto g3 is like this selling ... morewrong.xa has hybrid autofocus-both phase detection and contrast af...for those who cant understand...xa has a killer awesome rear camera...besides front cam has a huge sensor.megapixels dont mean everything.13mp of moto g is not even a distant match for 13mp hybrid af sony cam.xperia ui is stock android plus sony add ons that feels so integrated but adds great functionality.again mah of battery means nothing.absolutely.2300mah of xa will last longer than 3000 mah above phones.how i know??my 2330mah xperia m2 lasts way longer than my 3300mah j7 2016.you are paying for xa more as it has hybrid af, camera,smoothest xperia laincher,sony media apps,bravia engine,great sound,curved 2.5d screen,looks great...and turns heads.and yeah-you pay 2ooors for xperia brand name...
They should have atleast use the 2700mah battery and the front flash of the e5 here on the XA.
Guest, 30 May 2016They are selling the brand name not the product itselfXA is more Aesthetics than power the screen has almost no bezels
Rs12500/- is exact price which can be paid for Dual sim version. Moto g3 is like this selling for Rs9999/-,more rupee are added for colour,octa core and xperia launcher,rest are for its design that Chinese companies also make. Even if Sony Don't understand, he is out of mind and soon will be from business.

Be aware that internet folks can use even official forums as marketing strategies. I don't think they're mostly paid people or anything, but as you said, people are brainwashed. One could willingly and happily become a "keyboard warrior" and fights for things they LOVE, which includes brands that brainwashed them.
This is why I rely heavily on offline scrutiny and offline friends I trusted when it comes to the really important things, such as purchases with real money, purchases with game money, and deciding on what dress should I wear, deciding what to eat for dinner...

But the stand by time was simply amazing...1% over night,I'm not kidding...tested for two consecutive nights.

My old Moto G running KitKat, it used to overheat like hell when using chrome. I can't blame the processor can I? Snapdragon 400 is a low power performance.
But after I upgraded to Lollipop 5.1 and did a software reset, the heating issues stopped.
So Helio X10 has no heat issues. It's just the software.
