Anonymous, 19 Feb 2017Still waiting for android nougat for sony xperia xaMe too. Sony is awful with updates. They are treating this phone like they did with the Xperia M4 Aqua. They fooled me once and now again. NEVER AGAIN SONY!!!
Jed, 19 Feb 2017I just bought this six hours ago and now the phone is starting to get warm until normal usage.... moreHey there, probably it is updating apps in the background, same thing happened with my cousin, let it finish these updates or disable automatic updates from the Google store settings.
I just bought this six hours ago and now the phone is starting to get warm until normal usage. Battery life is not that good but manageable. Other than those two mentioned, I'm loving every single bit of this phone.
Ace Ling, 18 Feb 2017hey man I'm told that Sony devices all heat up like real quick lol
Some of them, only when playing high graphics games like many other smartphones.
Be careful some none optimized applications cause overheating and battery drain.

Sony should give VoLTE in phones of these range.

Owned Xperia XA Dual for almost a month now, and I must say that I did not expect to change my love from Asus to Sony in an instance( was rocking on Zenfone Max before this). Though the battery life isn't as tough as Zenfone Max, but I'm really liking it. However on the downside though, I found a scratch on the back non-removable casing(which is a surprise for me despite it is matte finish) was having a phone case on all the time except during charging and I'm really down after finding the scratch on the back
O.G, 13 Feb 2017Just to clarify all of you complaining about the Xperia XA; 1-Who needs more than 12 hours ... moreI have just upgraded from an experia z3, and you've put all my fears too rest thankyou
Eagle eye 1, 03 Feb 2017Nope, mine is soooo fine, not a single issue. From where did u bought
I have the same question like anonymus below:
Can you record calls on this phone using "automatic call recorder" app or something similar, or will it record only your side of conversation like Nexus 5X?

Rayne , 22 Feb 2016Sony will overpriced this and the interest of this phone will be gone just like most Sony phones :(You are wrong sir ;)

Sorry for my misunderstanding, Its really odd that when you left it on the table with 100%, in the morning it got discharged to 26%....
My point of view would either be someone used the device without your consent.. id say that installed application were draining your battery but seems you haven't installed any.... I would contact sony to see what is the issue because it seem like a battery issue..
When my device is at 100% and I don't touch it, in the morning its still at 100%...
Anyways, inconvenience do happen right !!
Have a great day :)

The phone is actually in Sony's warranty service. I owned it like 3 days and had 5 charging cycles meanwhile. I didn't install any additional apps so for me the phone battery consuming behaviour is still a big question in the air.
I am glad I bought it using the online shopping system as I still have the possibility to return this item using the money back guarantee. I am glad you are satisfied with your XA,
Matt, 15 Feb 2017I agree with You in every other point but I disagree this device is having a decent battery.
... moreHey Matt,
1-Why do you overcharge your phone? Phone should be disconnected to avoid overcharging and overheating over night(I wake up in the middle of the night to unplug it if I left it to charge before I sleep, if not I unplug it before I go to bed.)
2-How is it that when you charged it fully, you woke up in the morning and the battery was at 26%? Here are my two theories.
-2a: You forgot to plug the charger on the AC outlet.
-2b: You forgot to plug the charger in the AC adapter.
3-Have you noticed that we are able to run good games and play great videos? Picture are clear and applications aren't laggy?(unless you stress-use the device.) Our "Mediatek MT6755 Helio P10" is doing an amazing job in handling daily usage and it is not a cheap chipset. (compare older devices or get informed before assuming we aren't well equipped.)
4-If your device is always seeking new wireless networks, then desactivate your wifi. If you are talking about your carrier, go choose a specific carrier on your network options.
5-The phone to me is worth 1,000,000$
6-If you like Sony device's and still complaining about the XA, you shouldhave put a little more money to get yourself the Xperia X.
7-Fortunately for me, I haven't run into any issues since I owned the Xperia XA, I discharged it the first day I got it & left it to charge the whole night so I can get a good battery life with it.(Do this once per month) If you are unsatisfied with this device, sell it and get yourself the Xperia X or the XA Ultra.
My final point is that I am really grateful for this device, Its the best device I ever had since my old SGS4mini and I am planning in supporting Sony. Its smooth, its user-friendly and it looks really beautiful.
If you have any further concern about your Xperia XA and still under sony manufacture warranty, they will be more than happy to assist you in your case.

O.G, 13 Feb 2017Just to clarify all of you complaining about the Xperia XA;
1-Who needs more than 12 hours ... moreI agree with You in every other point but I disagree this device is having a decent battery.
I bought Sony Xperia XA and left it turned in in the evening fully charged. As I woke up in the morning the battery was 26%. And as I have noticed this model has the cheap chip which has huge issue as it is always seeking the new wireless networks even if it is in ultra stamina mode. So that in mind - it is not a phone worth 200Â€ whilst it has that kind of problem.
And as you asked why I have chosen this model I really liked Sony devices this far. And this model is perfect in other aspects - perfect design, really good in performance etc.
Why I am here on this site talking about XA? Unfortunately I still own this device and seek for the solution for this huge problem but havenät found one yet.
