Hi, am looking for a bit of advice on the experia xa. I purchased it in January 2017 it looks great and does nearly everything I'd ever need it for. However I'm finding that the 16gb memory is not enough. I have a 25gb sd card for all photos and videos etc. However, despite this , I only have room to add on maybe 3 or 4 apps. I am a light user,non gamer, really just browsing, emails, light social media and pics of the kids etc. So I'm wondering if I've inadvertently done something to take up all the memory or if anyone else had a similar problem?

And i'd buy tpu cover and tempered glass perhaps, Will it really protect the screen (have to be really careful since its borderless)?
Ahmad51, 24 Mar 2017You make me want to buy this phone! Thank you!Hey Ahmad,
Its my pleasure, I adore my Xperia XA.
There's is little to nothing to complain about which is one of the reason I love this device(forsure I miss my zenfone but as I said, there's some situations in life where we cant have control over, someone stole my zenfone -___-)
But this Xperia XA, is a must if you are on a budget and looking for a good mid-range device. Its does all the basics a smartphones needs too and plus the style has won an IF award for best smartphone design.(Go on sony official website for more info.)
If you take good care of the device, you should not worry about any others issues.
Have a good weekend!
Carl j, 06 Mar 2017What happened to the nougat update for xperia xa? What is taking so long?Í think almost everybody has received the last security update. After everyone has it I believe nougat will start rolling out!
Amar , 22 Mar 2017Ever wrost phone, no battery backup, no camera, according to money not look also. Even about b... moreHey Amar (gMC$)
I am very sorry to read that you are deceived by the Xperia XA.
Its the best device I ever had in my life(Zenfone 3 will always be my top 1(device is now dead-_-)/but atm the Xperia XA is my daily phone)
It is very hard to understand your point as you do not speak English properly...So let's go:
1-Battery Backup? I mean, we cannot change the battery ourselves...we have to go to a sony certified store..(find one near your location)
2-No camera...? I think you are blind AHAHAHAHA, we have a 13 mp camera on the back(fresh out the box is setted to 8MP-you have to change the settings to get the Superior mode to 13mp)
3-So you wrote...."According to money not look also." .....Okay? ahahahahaha
4- "Even about battery that it's Nly 3 month n I used stamina mode also for better battery bt on net its 2 hour maximum n at least 3 time in a day you have to charge for normal use" So here is my answer:
You are stress-using the device, you say 2 hours of battery time while on net?... that is really odd but either way, you should not use the device as an alternate entertainment product, please use a computer/Playstation/TV/Tablet for any other purposes..my device at 9am is at 98% and at 9pm is at 20%-50% depending how I am using it( I mainly use my device for music, socials app and daily tasks.)- I also charge my device up to 2 times a day,please don't say 3 times after normal use[you are not using the device normally]-(before sleeping and I charge it outside if ever I need extra battery depending of your daily schedule.)If not you are having issues with what you are doing during your days...(get your life organized) and also, I never used stamina mode as I always take care of my device and the battery is lasting me throughout the whole day !!!(surprised me but even at 20% I start to get paranoid but at least I can charge it before sleeping)
5- "it's my big mistake to purchase this phone" I am really sorry to read this, but it seems you do not know how to take care of your device and did not get informed before buying the device.
6-"please suggest to all don't bye this phone" uhhh....
7-"it's totally wastage of money" For me, this device is in my top 3 phone I ever owned in my life after my old Zenfone ):, Its been 2 month I have the device and it never lagged, never got any issues, battery does drains fast when using LTE(not draining fast when using WiFi) The plan that I have with my phone is very good.
Here are my final Point:
1-The Xperia XA has won a award for the best design in 2017.
2-My Xperia XA haven't deceived me yet, hopefully not, but I tried to take as much care as I can.
3-I miss my ZenFone but in life, unfortunate situations happens and we have to move on. When I got my Xperia XA, I fell in love with it and it is performing very good. I cannot ask for more.
4-You have to take care of the device, one of the best tip I can give you guys for your battery is this:
4a:Discharge battery once a month from 100% to 1%
4b:Let device shutdown and plug it in as soon as its dead.
4c:Do not open your device until it has reached 100%
4d:Repeat this step once a month and the battery should always be performing well(no issues on my end for my Xperia XA)
5-Clear unused apps and files to keep the internal memory 500mb so that the device is always smooth.
I am very satisfied of my Xperia XA, Love it, Its like my baby.
I will always support Sony, will never go back to Samsung or Apple.(Forsure I will get a Sony device after my contract ends.2019)
To all Xperia XA owners, take good care of the device, blow at least once a month in the usb port and headphone jack to remove any dust or etc and always wipe your device with a soft cloth.
Thank you sony, keep doing a good job.
And to you my dear Amar, good luck with all the others company planned obsolescence ahahahahaha
Nougat for Xperia XA is confirmed by Sony in their web page:
A great new for our phone! I can't wait to have it!

Yes it will be a good device as a mid-range phone.
I mainly use my device for socials app, music & spotify and others useful apps.
For gamings, you should expect the device to overheat
This is the best phone I ever had in my 22 years of existence in this life
