DealBreaker, 18 May 2016If xperia Z3 will be at the same price as this phone why one would by this XA instead of the Z3.Not "will be" since the Z3 is already launched. But i agree, if they re-launched the ultimately best selling SONY Z3 lineup now, say, borrowing SAMSUNG'S naming sakes "2016 Edition" I too will consider the new phones even after owning and very satisfied with my Z3TC. But unfortunately SONY does not have the same capacity as SAMSUNG when it comes to launching many models per-year. I too wished for the better on this department. But alas.
Why 2016 edition? Because all of the "Legend" are either sold out of every shelves or stores, or the available ones on sale are used ones.
If xperia Z3 will be at the same price as this phone why one would by this XA instead of the Z3.

maica, 16 May 2016Sony is the past. LG is the future of smartphoneslooool, yeah right
Sony XPERIA smartphones are great. The XPERIA XA, X, X Perfomance are great phones.
But the price of these smartphones are very high than expected.
Sony XPERIA X Performance may be flagship for this year, but 2015 flagship Z5 Premium has better specification than X Performance.
Dont know what the Sony is doing. They must understand the competition from other brands. They should make smartphones with competitive pricing.
"Sony is inefficient.. we cannot make cheap product because we spent too much on research for the best experience and quality product for our consumer." is what once marketing manager of Sony said...
And yes, I experienced it myself the quality of Sony... I never had a problem with Sony brand even once since many years ago. I never had a "suddenly broken without reason" shet with Sony like I did with many other brands (Samshet included, tab 2 broken without reason in less than a year). Even my current 3 year old Sony phone never had problem since I bought it and the battery can still survive 2 days on full charge.
Yes, I agree that Sony is expensive... but you get quality and durability for the price.
If you want cheap device, get Chinese brand... guaranteed you can get twice the spec with the same price and also the "can suddenly broken without reason" shet as extra bonus.
Too expensive for a midrange. I dont like sony. Lg and samsung is better
bernice, 05 May 2016The price is like a flagship but then sony labeled it as a midrange. Sony sucks. It's $400 Aussie. It's hard to find a phone that is 3 years old for that price...second hand.
bernice, 05 May 2016The price is like a flagship but then sony labeled it as a midrange. Sony sucks. Has flagship price? This is clearly a midrange price point. Maybe you buy xiaomi devices so you consider xa's price flagship-level
jem, 03 May 2016sony needs to go back to the drawing board. all their devices are too expensive or in other wo... moreMaybe they not,for example look at attention to detail,look sony multimedia apps,ui,everything look and feels,expensive,grownup,not like most ui with icon that look like 8 year old kids draw it, its just something about xperias,when you use it you will see,and you will love it
They done some stupid things,but everybody did
Xperia are simply great phones,specialy z series
The price is like a flagship but then sony labeled it as a midrange. Sony sucks.
I am a proud Sony Fan. I am owning a Sony Xperia z3 right now and I was trying to move forward and buy z5 but due to the over heating issue, I changed my mind and I am waiting for the X series to be released soon. I hope the brush metal will solve the heating issue. Looking forward to buy X performance. I hope they release it as their flagship mobile.
