XA is brilliant and shining like a diamond.camera selfie and shutter,sexy design,nice display with features like NFC,VOLTE,Fast Charging.
I have been using it for last two months.the camea is perfect and sound quality of xa is excellent.
VOLTE can probably work on XA.first you shuold enable LTE/WCDMA/GSM from setting>wireless&Network>more>mobile networks
then open the dialer and dial *#*#4636#*#* - Phone Information it says turn off VOLTE permission flag as a setting doesn't seem to do much.
For adding Enable Volte in setting(mobile network) your device should be rooted to changing some overlay apps and changing modem to VoLTE as well.
I have xperia xa dual f3116 and VOLTE works well on my device.

To all the haters of the Xperia XA, here is one of my previous post I written to a dude who was complaining about our device.
It is an awesome device for people on a tight budget, everything from the design to the software, everything runs smoothly.
It is the best device i ever had in my life.(i had samsungs, iphone, flipphones etc...)
You can say you dislike the device and you dont recommend it to others, but as I am assuming is you like high specs devices and expensives phone.
Depending what you went through in life, you have a tolerance level. My tolerance level is kinda high, but i expect events and situation to be in a favorable position.
My Xperia XA(Have it for almost one month) and I can say the following as i did mention alot of points in some of my previous post if you go in the second third page starting this page.
1-Device is really beautiful and sleek.(yes speaker is single(mono), not stereo, I always use the music player app and go in the settings and use ClearAudio+ and peek up my equalizer so I can have a clear sound)
2-Internal software and hardware items are doing theirs job properly(never had a issue about lagging or app that are shutting down on theirs own.)
3-Camera on the back is the best one i had since then, i know there are devices with a high quality camera but as long as i can take good pictures(better than my SGS4m) I am satisfied.
4-I use it moderately and for my daily tasks, I do not stress-use the device and never use it as an alternate entertainement product(please tell your friend if he did before, to use a computer/laptop, tablet/tv or ps4/xbox to do whatever purposes.)
*Yes you can use your Xperia XA to watch youtube or play games, but expect your device to overheat and get a little bit laggy if you do download alot of stuff into the internal storage)
5-It has all the basics things we need to find in a smartphone, it is there to support our daily lives.
I am happy he was able to get a refund and that he went to buy a Samsung J5(good luck with samsung's planned obsolescence ahahaha :D )
To anyone coming on this page trying to find any info about the Xperia XA, you can go in the user reviews and find all of my post by searching opinions with my name (O.G)
Everything for the Xperia XA is satisfying and the only con i can say is the battery life.(100% at 9AM, 35-50% at 9pm) with daily usage of facebook, snapchat, instagram & music(no games)
To all Xperia XA owners, ENJOY AND TAKE GOOD CARE OF THE DEVICE !

I'm waiting for Nougat update to see if it fixes the problems. I send you a screenshot of my battery usage. Regards
May I ask did you notice a yellowish colour at any side of the screen I can't tell when the screen is clear (white themes) this clear yellow line at the middle of the left side
AnonD-638907, 28 Apr 2017I don't know just hope so; that's one of the improvements android talked about and we need it! Do you remember when we bought it it had a sticker it on with a pink drawing of a battery and it said 2 days? It's seems it's not what Sony planned ..something went wrong

So for sure this device it's not for indolent people.
i bought this phone and im proud of the brigthness it is very strong in daylight and the camera is good but it is quite difficult because it has a lot of options
Had a week sold it terrible battery life on it.
Nougat won't improve battery life they stuck a small battery in a Handset that has a power hungry sucking chipset.
try to discharge your phone to 0% and charge it for 3-5 mins. then turn on your phone. you may see from 0% it will become 45% battery charge. My sony xa is like that. But I discharge it just once a month. My sony xa is 6 month old now and I never update it since I bought it. my only problem is the sound is sometimes low and aside from that no problems at all.
