Its the 6th month birthday of my Xperia XA. :D
Very good device, as I mention in a previous post.
Never had issues with it except for Screen Overlay Detected(which took me 2 weeks to figure out how to remove it as multiple app did not work.)
Love it, I clean it every night and not running into any issues.
*nougat did upgrade my battery life a little.

AnonD-638907, 27 Jul 2017Thank you for your tips! I downloaded some u recommended :)As previous comment said, check every now and then What's new offers. Whenever there is a new theme I got notification and see if I like it or not. Right now I have "magical summer" which you can find on Google play (sony mobile communication).

Stamina Mode is set to 'Auto start at 20%.' Gps, Wifi & Bluetooth scanner, mobile data is all off. I've only used WiFi so far and no 4G/3G. And as I mentioned, brightness set to 30%. I did a battery test through an app and it showed me my Kernel was keeping the screen awake. Could a factory reset resolve this issue?

If you want, you may perform a factory reset or perform a software repair through Xperia Companion software in your PC.
My screen's been using up like 60-70 percent of my battery every time I check the battery usage. And this is with the brightness set to around 30-35% and the image enhancement option off. I feel this is abnormal, as my 1st Gen Moto G uses no more than 10% at any time, plus I've seen other people's battery usage and none of their phone's display use as much battery as my XA. Could this be a bug? Should I perform a factory reset?
AnonD-638907, 26 Jul 2017Why are snow themes so bad! Samsung has better themes for sure. If you know where to download ... moreCheck What's New app from time to time. They have mini games that give cool themes with live wallpapers. So far I got "Live in Space" and "Hexacore" Themes.
Xperia Lounge also has offers of free themes. They gave out "Playstation" theme which was good. Unfortunately, most free themes by Sony are ugly for me :/ (Except the "Triflat" theme)
Most official themes are not free, but there are unofficial free xperia themes in the play store. The one I have now is "Material Premium Simplism" theme by Shuvro. It replaces the home button to a cool XPERIA logo and has icon packs, but some components of the theme do not work on nougat tho.
"Material Premium Simplism" Theme + Blue Xperia Loops live wallpaper is the best look for me. :)

Keti, 26 Jul 2017It always asks me for system update. I turned auto update off but it continues to remind. Why? Lucky you I want the update too!

You'll have to calibrate the battery at least once. Charge it to 100, drain it to 0 and then charge it to 100 once again. Tell me if your drainage improves after that or not.
m123, 26 Jul 2017it dosnt work;
only shows the background image! like other versions! :(I think you're accessing the APKmirror link. It will not work on XA. However, if you download the Xperia Loops Theme ver 1.0.A.0.8.P.5 found in APKmirror, it will work. After installing it, change your wallpaper to Xperia Loops (do not apply the theme). But you will not be able to change colors, it will crash.
The file I'm referring to was a Mediafire link. I downloaded it, and it worked perfectly. I have it on for a few days now. It will work on Nougat version. But if you have doubts/suspicions, you can use the APKmirror file instead.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 26 Jul 2017Dude APKMIRROR is better for APKs because it is the original oneYes I am aware, but the version found on APKmirror does not work on XA. It will only show the background, and one version did work but it crashes when you change color. The one posted on XDA worked perfectly for me,
