The best way to avoid these situations is to do a factory reset after a major update. I also updated my phone to 7.0 and i have around 70 apps installed on my phone, i haven't experienced any issue. Yes sometimes app loading time takes a second or two but can't complain because you can't expect much from 2gb of RAM. one more thing use greenify to stop apps running in background.

Sonyuser85, 25 Aug 2017You show yourself irresponsible to tell me I am blind supporter. Mind your frustrations and wh... moreYes, the device is spectacular no doubt. I love the its design, camera is a mixed bag, sometimes gives good results and sometimes the results are poor. Display is great, despite being 720p, especially when comparing with my other smartphone with 1080p, i don't see any diff. But when i turn the super vivid mode on its video quality blows all the 1080p displays out of the water.
But there are two things which i don't like,
(1) "VoLTE" which the chipset already supports but the company is too lazy to make an update to enable it. My other phone got the VoLTE update just few days after my operator switched to VoLTE but SONY is giving excuses.
(2) Battery life isn't that good, yes i know after many updates Batt life has improved but not that much, it gives 4.5 hours of SoT on light usage with stamina mode on but when watching youtube for about 1.5 hours the battery percentage came down from 90% to 10%

Mind your frustrations and while trying to denigrate a person that had many experiences with Sony devices, better try and flash your phone with the latest firmware.
Once again, if you care about optimizing the device, then you have a perfect device for its price. So stop responding as some ignorants but start optimizing it, this device is great!
Sonyuser85, 22 Aug 2017Stop making comments without knowing the facts. The Nougat upgrade for XA device is great, but... moreHLW most smartest person in the world..why should i know about the firmware. i am using my phone as user not like blind supporter as like you...and for your inforamtion users are not the one who decide to issue the 2 firmware sony is the one who decide..so accept the thruth there is problems means problems is there. so we do ohnest comments not fake supporter comments like you.
AnonD-590249, 13 Aug 2017I have XA for 9 months now. More I use it, longer time my battery takes to charge. The huge is... moreBig talk for someone who uses a XA, the XA didn't named it self to be a flagship, if you want you can get a xz but can't afford it ha? Thats what the XA is for, that's why it's cheap, please don't expect the XA to be a flagship cause it's not, I own a XA although its not perfect it's still a good phone :)
I Wish I had come across this site before buying my Sony XA Dual Phone. mine just switches off for hours whenever it feels like. I noted many comments regarding the battery life but it cant just be the battery there must be something else really amiss with this cell phone. I Have never seen it going on battery empty or at least below 50% it just switches off and then takes 3hours or more of charging to switch back on. Its entirely frustrating and I am totally disappointed by the brand.

Vodafone sent me two Samsung Galaxy Express phone and both had motherboard issues. I had to wait for two months for replacement because the whole lot was defective .

Let me tell you I have a friend working in a electronics national service. Most defective motherboards are under the cover of Samsung and mostly on low-mid devices. Sony in most cases are having troubles because of bad shocks or water/milk/yogurt leakage (low-mid devices - no waterproof). But by from software and from so called multitasking and from warming only Samsung has the lead in silent deaths. Remember the in-house made N7 batteries? Without Sony components in their devices, Samsung were still crap. That friend of mine had hundreds of Samsung laptops burned, blown hard drives, rotten DDR memories, all by (some beloved) Samsung.
Sony XA have indeed problems only at bad physical maintaining. But make irresponsible assumptions for irresponsible people like you.
Very very very bad phone. after 1 year phones hardware like ear speaker, headphone stop working. I will not buy sony phone anymore.. I quite sony.

The only reason Samsung battery lasts a bit longer . Thanks to the energy efficient Super Amoled Dispaly . Both devices are a bang for the buck . Xperia XA is my favourite though
Sonyuser85, 23 Aug 2017Samsung will have burned its motherboard, memory and even CPU chips, twice as fast your batter... moreThanks for the advice but I haven't received nougat so can't download it yet. 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!
