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.

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.
shen, 29 Mar 2017helo i just bought my sony xa..the battery is no good !!easy to drain..Hey Shen,
As any other smartphones/tablet, before using your device for the first time, YOU HAVE TO CHARGE IT 12 HOURS(or until it hits 100%)
Most people, use theirs devices without charging it properly the first time it comes to life.
shen, 29 Mar 2017helo i just bought my sony xa..the battery is no good !!easy to drain..It happened to me when I just bought it too it drained so fast even doing nothing! But after a few full charges and following some tips about the Wi-Fi drain and adding the last update everything is great! My cell last the hole day without problem with moderate usage social media music browsing calls messages and a little gaming
During file transfer (MPT) under Windows 10 64bit, this option just does not switch on, so I can not transfer any files via USB cable. I have installed XA USB drivers from Sony and used also Companion SW, but still no hope. I dual booted to Linux with same HW and all worked well, so, how to get file transfer to work under Win 10?
Geo, 28 Mar 2017Dear Friends I Want To Buy Sony Xperia Xa Dual, I Have Saw All Reviews I Was Totally Confused ... moreHey Geo,
The battery does drain fast if you are outside of your house and is using LTE, I saw that when I use wifi the device battery does not drain fast.
If you use the device normally, you should be able to tuff out the battery through out the day.
AnonD-10720, 28 Mar 2017Battery drain fast

"Battery drain fast
Fragile screen which not gorilla standard.
Worst xperia product I ever have.
Sorry to Sony as I won't go for it anymore.
Nice design but fragile."
The battery does drain fast if you do stress-use the device, regarding the screen, we have a scratch resistant glass screen, I bought a tempered glass to cover my screen and its gives more protection.
There are worst xperia that they have made back in the early days of the xperia family ahahahaha, look it up before commenting these type of answers.
The xperia xa has won the 2016 IF award for the best smartphone design, I think you forgot to do your researches before saying things that are not correct.
Good luck with all the others company planned obsolescence ahahahhahaa
