Just to clarify all of you complaining about the Xperia XA;
1-Who needs more than 12 hours of battery if you have a normal routine daily.(If you stress-use the device then you have an issue with your schedule)
2-I am very satisfied with this device, I can take way better pictures than my SGS4 Mini
3-This device run really smoothly, I never had issues with my Data as I always desactivate my Mobile Data whenever I do not need it or use it.(to all of you saying it keeps activating all alone, you need to stop using your data rigourously)
4-Xperia XA screen is way better than I expected, even if its not 1080p it is a very nice screen and display we have.
5-Device should not be used as a alternate entertainment product(Use your Xperia XA moderately, computer/laptop, PS4/XBOX, your phone should be there for you only for smalls task(not watching Netflix every hour on it-then you would be complaining about the device getting hot and not charging properly)
6-If you are unsatisfied of your Xperia XA, I do not understand why you decided to choose this device. I had 4 others device to choose from and the Xperia XA is the best device I ever had.
I don't care about your iPhone, Samsung or etc, if you come on this page and start stating that this device is not as good as you expected, next time do you researches before getting a new device.
I love sony and I know they are true to the brand name, never deceived me since I started with the playstation 1(fat)

I do recognize the need to grow with the market. What I do not like ... more
These days I'm looking for a new phone and normally it is important higher-quality camera and good battery and at this moment I'm thinking around huawei p9 Lite,- Samsung J5 - and Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime, even Meizu MX4 Pro is able to.

I do recognize the need to grow with the market. What I do not like is the way they are positioning themselves. They have repositioned the brand (currently Sony Xperia have been reasonably mid-class brand) to low-end one and it makes me to go search competitive brand on the market.
I do not care about high values in specs but I definitely need to have a phone which will last more than 12hours. I do not accept that I have to carry on wire everywhere for charging. At the current time 2-3 days would be really ok.
Matt, 12 Feb 2017Correction: ...Sony Xperia XA lasting only 12 hours...
in order to be competitive with the low prices at a time when Chinese producers with less known brands offer greater performance then should be shortened from something but in this case it is up to the battery and display quality only HD 1280 x 720 not full HD 1920 x 1080 but for this price you could get and 4k display quad HD resolutions (1440 x 2560)
but less well-known Chinese brand and i come with a 5000mAh battery .

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.
AnonD-481725, 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.

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

AnonD-614442, 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%.
