After 5 months of usage and updates, The Battery life have improved. No battery draining at all. Credits goes to sony for listening to its users.
Phone is very Robust. I have dropped mine like 3 times and only had bumps on the corners.
Overall its a fine phone, fast and good for its price.
To everyone who has a fast battery drain..
You all should upgrade the SONY On the Air OTA updates
Especially; the latest update with over 9900MB is excellent to battery life span and also improve camera
Now my XA has good battery life and standby time and best camera performances
There is some tips for mass bettery drain
1-adjust screen light
Setting>Display>smart backlight control : off
Setting>account & sync and disable auto sync data
Setting>sound¬ifaction and disable also vibrate for calls
Other sounds and diisable sounds
Notifaction and disable notifaction light
5-remove all widgage on screen
Much widgage would also drain your
Setting>wifi and select off

sg94, 05 Apr 2017Plz suggest me,Which one should I go for? Xperia XA or J7 prime?Hi sg
Galaxy j7 prime has Fingerprint with the better battery performance.
Xperia xa has better camera(specialy front camera) and PIXEL DENSITY.
don't forget xa is cheaper than j7 prime.
I had bad exprience with galaxy phones.they are good on the paper but when you test them in your hands and see their performance with your own eyes you will regert for buying them.
You can spend more money and buy xperia xa ultra.xa ultra is more better than j7 prime.
Can some one please tell me about the calendar. My previous Sony...I just tapped on the calendar, but nothing happens when I touch it on new phone.

Just charge your device around 5%-10% and try to not use the device while its charging( it can affect the battery life)
Every month since January I got it, once a month I charge the device to 100% then use it during the day and at the end of the day I discharge the device until it hits 0%, the device shuts down and then I just plug it in WITHOUT powering it up until it reaches 100%.
This will help the battery life to extend it.
Take care of the device and make sure to clean your device regularly :)

I had to do an update two more times and now it's fine. How should I treat the battery so it could last longer? I don't want to use stamina right a way, just to see its performance. How often should I charge it (when it gets to 0%, or? ). Everybody say different things

It is normal, because we have to update the software as soon as we open up the device for the first time( I went through it also!)
No worries, mightbe 2-3-4 updates related with the xperia software or security :D
Have a great week and take care of the device !! I still love my device
I just got this phone. After a few days I'll write a review. I only have to ask something about software update. (O.G. Could know the answer) so, it popped out "software update", I clicked yeas, then it restarted and when everything was done (it said you have the latest one), it showed me again do the system update?? Is that normal or do I have to keep updating it till I get the latest one? (there were 3 updates since last July, I think)., so anyone knows what is it (I don't know a lot about these things, I'll be very grateful if someone replies)

Don't believe everybody, but my main concern is the battery life, but its average. And you can get a flip case in any store that sells phone cases :D
I have left many comments about the device, you can read them :D
Have a great week
Queen, 02 Apr 2017Hello O.G. i was thinking of buying this Sony Xperia XA but i got alarmed looking and reading ... moreIm owner xa and i am very pleasure.Unfortunately it is true that the battery is not a super long lasting device, but with moderate use of the device(not stressing it) the battery last me through out the day and onething is for sure you can't get a better mobile at this price.
I Had an galaxy j5 2016 too before my current xa, one of the worst phone i ever had.Now got a xperia xa though, best value for money phone I ever had tbh
wish I had a cool phone like z5p or xz but financial situation....
I have had this phone about 2 to 3 weeks. Whilst I am not too happy either about the battery life, it's a reasonable handset for the money.
Pros - cheap(ish). Does everything expected from a smartphone
Cons - poor battery life, even under Stamina mode. I can make it last 2 days, but the same usage on my other phones would get me 4 days on a single charge.
The camera is not too great with the flash in dark conditions. When outdoors or in decent daylight, the camera is fine. But forget the flash - the pics come out utterly crap.
Hello O.G. i was thinking of buying this Sony Xperia XA but i got alarmed looking and reading with all these negative comments about this phone, is that all true? I'm concern with the battery issue.. And i'm also wondering where i could buy a flip case for this phone.. Hope you will response.. Thank you
Sony always doing missuse of our money. If the customer is giving amount for the phone. He should get good product. The waste of money. I purchased sonyxperia xa i hate the device. Battery was 100% withing half n hour it drained to 46%. I hate the battery as wellbas sound of speaker. Bad volume. Dont but this Sony product friends.
AnonD-657284, 30 Mar 2017Dont buy sony xperia model, it is having battery drained problem(the battery will drained with... moreHey Vinoth,
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 !
The 'Edjing' app won't work on this device. It says "Unfortunately, edjing has stopped" what do I do? I need help :c
for the battery is no good because the phone has really lightly screen if you keep oy in 50% brightness ,will be different
useless and expensive mobile by Sony
this should not be more than Rs 10000
Dont buy sony xperia model, it is having battery drained problem(the battery will drained with in 15 minutes) and also low volume(if u listen the songs through headset means its fine, incase if you just play the songs in the musc player, very very lttle sound only comes).While buying the sony phone, the executives which they are in showrooom they usually having the habit of saying to the customer is the battery standby is 2 days.Dont trust that word..because the major problem in sony experia handset is battery problem.now a days with a every specificaton with a low cost most of the mobile phones are launched,but still peoples are buying sony product, because the peoples are trusting on you sony.so before launching the mobile, kindly check thrice and release.
