EmilyKateT, 21 Dec 2016I`m thinking of getting this phone, is this worth it? I just need to be able to do the basic ... moreYes if you want it for that use is the perfect phone! It's great! good camera, very fast, absolutely beautiful, perfect screen size. I have the Wi-Fi on ALL DAY and I easily finish the day; I get until 4 hours of screen on ( like you with an average use texting, calling, facebook, whatsap, and some candy crush! ) it's the my best phone so far (and I had a Sony z3 compact before this). Good luck 😁
I bought this phone on november and didnt experience any problems until now. The main camera started to soften 2 weeks ago and now, I cant even take decent pictures anymore. The photos now look so soft and out of focus. Only the main camera has this problem. I've already tried factory reset but doesnt work. Any suggestions? This experience is so disappointing. I'm not going back to the sony camp unless this issue is solved.
The phone says I have 5.93 GB operating system + 2.60 GB of apps, but in total the mobile says I have 9.23GB used of 16GB. If you add 5.93 GB + 2.60 GB gives 8.53 GB not 9.23 GB. Where does the 690 MB remaining come from?
For rest I have:
Android System: 5.93 GB
Apps: 2.60 GB
Images: 24 KB
Videos: 8 KB
Audio: 40 KB
Other: 8.54 MB
Cached data: 13.02 MB
I do not have any photos, music or video on my phone, all that is on memory card.
Sorry for my english. ;)
Just got this in pakistan. Worth the price as its giving good battery time. Backup is enough for 2300mah. I dont know why people are expecting flagship like performance. Come on its a mid ranger. Only 21000 in pakistan. Don't forget its sony. its not a chinese phone.cam is great, battery is good for me its one day,important thing is it ll get nougat. Means no need to change your phone for next 1 year.
Sony should make Xa 4'7 inches, since it has only 2300 Mah battery

Do a factory reset, then stop/disable Google search and Google play. These applications do a lot of trouble when are activated and nothing special happens. In fact all Google applications erase a lot of its performance. And better than rooting, stop the Google...
