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.
Is there a way that you can make your SD card as your preferred install location?
anonymous , 14 Feb 2017What's the gaming performance of this phones is it able to play high end games like asphalt, nova..Watch this video
Can you record calls on this phone using "automatic call recorder" app or something similar, or will it record only one side like Nexus 5X?

AnonD-641414, 14 Feb 2017i love you sony xperia xa i love my phone xperia me too, i l.o.v.e it!! :d
AnonD-641414, 14 Feb 2017i love you sony xperia xa i love my phone xperia I am very happy that you love your device, Im in love with it too, its a very wonderful device and one of the greatest design sony has made for the X family.
Take good care of the device :)
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)
Matt, 12 Feb 2017Thanks for Your support!
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.
