tubaa, 10 Jan 2017plz tell me about Sony Xa rose gold ...its working and camera result ?? If you want to use it for gaming, then this is not recommender. I would say this is designed for social needs like Fb, Twitter, Text and calls. Battery is fair enough.. Unlike Asus. But Sony XA is not that bad. I love it despite the battery life.

Operation is great but some stock applications should be disabled for best performance!
I took it with 230$. Fair enough!
Very bad experience with this phone poor camera and slow ram complete West of money and time

Anonymous, 06 Jan 2017Any tips on how to imorove its battery life? Ive been using this for like 1 week and the batte... moreHere's some tips:
- Update your phone to the latest version. Version 33.2.A.3.81 improved the battery life.
- You may opt to do a software repair through Xperia Companion (PC Software) if the problem still insists.
- There's also a bug stated a while ago about Wi-Fi Scanning. Click Settings > Location > Click the three dots > Turn off both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth scanning. (This was already fixed, I think).
- Turn on STAMINA mode all the time.
- Turn off Wi-Fi, bluetooth, auto-rotation, auto-sync when not needed.
- Enable Smart Back light control and Auto brightness
- Disable image enhancements (Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 or Super-vivid mode)
- Disable keep Wi-Fi on during sleep.
- Do not play graphic intensive games for too long, let the phone rest when it heats up.
- Do not take many consecutive shots with the camera, take a few shots and let it rest when it heats up.
- There's also a bug called "Mobile Radio Active" common in most android phones. Turn on "Airplane mode" when possible especially when you're going to sleep.
- Please do take note that this phone has about 5 hours screen-on time and lasts about 1 day on normal usage because of the small battery capacity (2300 mAh).
- You may or may not do all the tips stated above, do what is applicable.
- Also, I read somewhere that the battery life increases by about 20% after 10 charging cycles.
