I love how Sony Xperia looks like...however....constant problems with the screen...have sent it two times for repair..still again it broke
Worst phone I recommend not to buy sony mobiles feed up of these problems.... When I brought this phone it was good looking beautiful phone I used it happily around 2-3 months with poor battery life, then all of sudden right corner side of my phone didn't work ( no touch response) had to mange for long time thn replaced whole screen luckily had warranty then after few months charging stopped..... Like I used to charge whole night it just charged 40-50% managed it for some days thn one day it stopped charging my phone was dead I went back to them( service center) he told due to ovr charge something charging slot with circuit inside is Burnet thn replaced it... Got my phone back thn it changed good for 1-2 days thn same problem repeated I say please don't back this phone or any sony phone I'm feed up of spending money on services u guys would get better phone at this price I'm getting new one enough of this shit ( although I'm sony user from long time)
I bought mine a year ago, I had to go to the service center 3 times. First problem is some part of the touch screen doesn't respond. They fix the problem by replacing the screen, after 3 months I have battery problem. It wont't charge, so I went to the service center again. They replace the battery, then after 4 months I have problem with the screen, it's blurred and sometimes it has shadows. So went to the service center again and they replace the screen again. And now after a year since I bought my phone and the warranty expired, touch screen becomes unresponsive again. The time for every repair before my phone is fix is about 3 weeks. I'm really disappointed with Sony, will never buy there phone anymore.
I would avoid buying an Xperia. There are less expensive, better phones available.
I received the Xperia XA as a gift in December 2016, and I thought not bad as it was a mid-price phone with large screen and a 2-year warranty. The wifi wasn't strong as for other phones that I had, but I could live with it. Then, the GPS went out in just over a year. Upon reading the blogs, it was clear that other Xperia users encountered the same problem, and not just with the XA line. It was probably systemic.
I had to send in the phone in for repair, because all solutions to fix the GPS didn't work and the diagnostic always failed. It came back to me with the repair report noting repair of the device, and stating that there was normal wear and tear on the device, nothing excessive. Sony was good about accepting the phone for repair without proof of purchase, but I had registered the phone upon receipt to initiate the warranty. The phone had not been repaired repaired. Upon setting it up and running the diagnostic, the GPS failed.
So, I sent the phone back in for repair. This time I received notification that the repair was beyond economical cost of the phone and that I could have a replacement for around Â€185, what I think is more than half of what the phone originally costed. I wrote back to Sony Support stating that the first review gave no indication that there was excessive wear on the phone and that the problem was likely due to manufacturing/parts and so the phone should be replaced free of charge. At this request, Sony notified me that they had opened up the phone and found evidence of oxidation due to water contact. They stated that this represented misuse of the phone as it was not waterproof and, therefore, negated the warranty. They wouldn't replace the phone. I must add that this "misuse" represented nothing more than storage for around 3 h in a pocket of a sweaty jacket as I was biking and some brief instances of use while walking in the rain to dampen the screen. I have had other phones that have experienced must worse, such as shocks from drops, etc., and they have kept working.
Needless to say, I have developed serious reservations about both the quality of Sony phones and the service that Sony provides.

battery, don't talk about it, it's bad
browsing the internet and playing asphalt with 3g in the morning will make you charge the phone at lunch with the SOT like ~2hours
camera, it's meh, I'm a student and I could take a picture of the board, zoom in, see the sentence clearly at 3 meters away
suggestion: buy something else.
the phone is not waterproof, so plenty of choices for you there. You can aim for the xa2
Or maybe, choose some Chinese brand like xiaomi(note 5 pro???), cheaper and better performance, battery, cam, etc.
Anonymous, 16 May 2018I don't think I'm ever buying a Sony anymore. the device keeps on crashing, it heats up quickl... moreyo I don't think so, everything works fine for me are your expectation 2 damn high??
nick, 21 May 2018very nice What is the battery and camera mode ... ??
I don't think I'm ever buying a Sony anymore. the device keeps on crashing, it heats up quickly and I always suffer from lagging
Great device. With 18 months of use, his performance is incredible, the only con, is the battery duration, wich in this time, has reduced his durability.
His proccesor and memory RAM, still can run any app, without problem.
An excellent device for his price.
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2018Worst phone i have ever purchased. The battery life is terrible. Requires two charges for the ... moreCrap. I've had nothing but trouble. Loss of WiFi connection a constant problem. Stay away from Sony products and keep your sanity.
My problem with the Sony XA is not only the battery life as someone said you have to charge it twice a day but the very poor sound quality I am really disappointed and cannot see myself buying a Sony phone again
I like this phone a loot :-)
A good and decent phone for the money, a little bit to thin to be healthy as frame stability being weak as whit all thin phones.
A problem I see some have in here, but I guess it's more a reflection on those as a person ;-)
If you pretect your investmet wita a good cover that's no problem, just as it's whit all other thin phones.
It's pretty fast and responcive for the cost and with a little twerking the battery last for more than a day with heavy use of social media like facebook and messanger, if just some normal calls a day then it last several days.
But one of the strogest point to by this phone is the support that realy stands out in the Androide universe, has never before had a phone with sutch a good support and with a steady update to newest os, and each time the phone seems to be even bether.
Take care of the phone and you have a long lasting companion!
In opposite to beating the phone as I read some does when complaining abouth random behaviour, that just reflects the users behaviour and not the phones behaviour ;-)
My first smartphone was an LG L3, I can swear, when it was new, it was sooooo much better, this phone has been trash since the day I've bought other, I'm going back to my destroyed xperia z3, I'd rather suffer a destroyed screen which touch functionality is trashed than this, every single thing about this phone is absolutely horrible, before this I really liked Sony smartphones, this and the xz2 made me run away from Sony as fast as I could, if Sony tried harder they could have kept many customers including me, instead of trashing the Xperia division every chance they get
