How come do we have that kind of issues with battery life. Sony had Sony Xperia Z3 with 3100mAh lasting 3-5 days, Sony Xperia M5 2600mAh lasting 2-3days & now Sony Xperia XA with 2300mAh lasting only 12 days. What comes next? 1300mAh wired phone?
Gerald, 09 Feb 2017Hey Sanjid
You probably haven't discharged your phone and let it charge to 100% on the firs... moredischarge battery to 0% and then charge up to 100% is to calibrate mobile battery but dont do that more than 1 per month.
li -ion batteries work better when you are not used to the end 0%,but most to 25 % and then put the battery to charge75-90% , ( why?)
lithium-ion batteries have a rated lifetime of somewhere between 500 and 1,500 charge cycles.
so if it reach 100% or less then 25% then it lose 1 cycle.(the user runs it down all the way to zero before recharging) can degrade to 70 percent of its original capacity in 300-500 cycles
With a DoD of 25 percent, where the user plugs it in as soon as it gets to 75 percent remain, that same battery could be charged up to 2,500 times before it starts to seriously degrade.
Charge a little bit whenever you can.
Lithium-ion batteries don't respond well to being charged all the way up and then run all the way down. They take much better to little bits of charge here and there.
What's far more dangerous to a battery's well-being is heat. Lithium-ion batteries despise heat.
Battery consumption depends on the applications you have installed on the phone and working in the background even if you do not use the phone. such as; facebook, instagram, messenger,Snapchat, so if you delete these apps and use them through the browser , thus saving up to 40% of the battery (day)life. the display put on minimum brightness and wi - fi, bluetooth, use it when you need.
Ali Bashir, 12 Feb 2017Xperia x is what you want. Nope. X does have 2620mAh which is not equal or more than 2800mAh.
I am true fan of Sony. Iˇve had Z3, M5 and both are best phones Iˇve had. Now I bought my wife XA(what a good looking design!) and got 6hours of battery life(NB! Not using phone at nighttime).
It totally changed my mind in Sony Xperia - sorry guys- not the way I assumed them to develop.
vutha , 12 Feb 2017I love Xperia xa but I want this with screen full HD and Battery greater than 2800mahXperia x is what you want.
I love Xperia xa but I want this with screen full HD and Battery greater than 2800mah
Kikcro, 04 Feb 2017Best looking Sony phone in many years, I am Sony fan for many years now (Xperia ray, Xperia T3... moreI've got same problem as yours. It's even not 24 hr yet, but I already face that problem. How to fix it?
I just bought my xperia xa. It's ended up turn on mobile data even when Im not turn it on. It's too annoying. My credit running out bcs of the mobile data. What should I do? It's totally upset me because it is new device after all. So dissapointing
HRIJOY, 10 Feb 2017I am the true fan of SONY..and i honestly say that sony xperia xa is a to much sexy phone eve... moreThat is exactly what i wanted to hear. i'm a Sony fan as well, but people keep comparing this midranger with flagships and find a lack of fingerprint sensor the biggest mistake lol Have Sony kept its typical music player (the Best one out there)?
HRIJOY, 10 Feb 2017I am the true fan of SONY..and i honestly say that sony xperia xa is a to much sexy phone eve... moreVery nice, I am happy that you love your phone, I love mine too.
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.
I just find something amazing about the battery drain issue. It seems that if you put your phone in only 2G network whenever you don't use your mobile data then you can save a lot of battery. Its 16:00 and from the night it lost only 6%.
Nick, 09 Feb 2017Ya after updation i got positive improvement Go ahead, but keep in mind, the battery life is average, not poor, not excellent.
I am the true fan of SONY..and i honestly say that sony xperia xa is a to much sexy phone ever i seen before. It has great design, great cameras, Good HD 720p edge to edge Display. But yes battery is little poor which does not matter for a true sony fan.
All you people whining about the phone obviously have no idea how to use and look after a phone. The Sony Experia XA is a very good phone for the price, I have had mine for a long time and have had no problems with it. Remember, you get what you pay for so stop carrying on and buy a more expensive phone if you don't like it.
Sanju, 03 Feb 2017Sony Xperia XA is too worst.... Pls don't buy this model phone... This is advice..... Because.... moreHey Sanjid
You probably haven't discharged your phone and let it charge to 100% on the first time you got the Xperia XA.
Another reason, is that you probably use your device often and don't let the device cool down( you stress the device )
Please make sure you discharge your device to 0% and let it charge back without opening it up to 100%, you will then see a change.
Take care of the device, its a very good device and one of the best design Sony has made.
Robin, 09 Feb 2017This phone is not all great. Fristly you can't block a specific phone number or send it to voi... moreYou don't have to send the person calling you to voicemail, either refuse the call(call will be forwarded to your voicemail) or answer the call.
If you need to block a number and the xperia XA cant do it, call your carrier and change your number or ask them to put the calling number on a Do not call list.
I got a good flip case for my phone
I don't need a screen protector as we have a Scratch Resistant Glass( just be careful with the screen)
Its a good buy for me, I love the device
Take care of your device and everything will be fine.
Sony has done a very very wonderful job with the xperia XA.(f3113)
