Zeeshan, 23 Feb 2017Very bad phone sony xa. Heating and touch is very poor... Hey Zeeshan,
As I did mention in some of my earliers posts.
Device will overheat if used as rigourously( playing games or watching youtube/netflix)
For the touch sensitivity, clean you screen regularly and dont use your device with greasy hand or dry skin on the finger.(never had a touch issue with my xperia xa)
Have a good day
O.G, 22 Feb 2017Hey Smartphone Geek,
Thank you for your review!
I am very sorry to hear that your friend ... moreHey Og,
I totally agreed with your views, and even i am also happy with my xperia xa, and battery life is also good after update, now its running upto 12 hours, even my phone is always connected with wifi whether i was in home or in office, but one thing i got really upset i cant see the option to use sd card as internal storage like other marshmallow phones, i dont know why this option is not here in xperia xa but except of sony all other brands of Os Marshmallow is comes with this feature.... have ever checked this O.G

Thank you for your review!
I am very sorry to hear that your friend has asked you to do a review for the xperia XA.
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.
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 !
StupidStriker, 22 Feb 2017I wish you knew how to read or had the ability to comprehend the English language... Because i... moreI know LOL :D But you will have to wait for that PLANNED Nougat few months to arrive ;) They just pushed january security patch for now
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2017Nougat is not yet available the guy is lying. It's just january security patch. :) I wish you knew how to read or had the ability to comprehend the English language... Because it clearly says PLANNED not that is Nougat already, so to break it down to you it means that it's PLANNED to be upgraded to 7 and not that it's currently running with nougat...
Haha, 21 Feb 2017Upgrated to Galaxy J5 ? XA is better than J5 in almost every aspect.For sure!
ela, 21 Feb 2017how's the battery life? is there any improvement?Nougat is not yet available the guy is lying. It's just january security patch. :)
Matt, 12 Feb 2017My only question is - in what era do we live? How come do we have that kind of issues with bat... moreIt is a phone made for daily tasks, not for gaming and heavy use. That is what Sony made it for - "to fit your lifestyle", this is their comercial. Your comment is irrelevant
ela, 21 Feb 2017xa or 5s? thanks!If you mean iPhone 5s, it is not worth to buy at all, believe me, it is very outdated with poor cameras and display, the only good thing is the CPU on it, nothing else, the battery performance of both are similar.
The xa is definitely better.
ela, 21 Feb 2017xa or 5s? thanks!This is 2017 and iPhone 5c os 5s whatever, they are already outdated. Now talking about xa, its just a bad choice. I'd suggest neither of them but if you have already made your mind to choose from the two, please don't choose xa.Do some research yourself, there are lot of much better devices
Rich, 21 Feb 2017Today I update my XA to nougat, I live in Mexicohow's the battery life? is there any improvement?
Xperia XA is getting january security patch. So it's not Android Nougat yet... I guess we will get it in few months. Thank you Sony for being super slow.
It's better if you buy a nokia 101 than having this shit. You can only use this for calling
I can say only one thing about Xperia xa.This device is just a piece of crap. Last month my friend bought this online. just because he didn't wanted a Chinese phone and his budget was tight so he decided to buy XA. With only 2days of usage, he came to me and asked for a review about that device. I used for a day and trust me you don't wanna buy this. Luckily he had a one month money back guarantee as he had bought online so he returned and UPGRADED to Samsung J5.
