Currently my year old device is experiencing moments of unresponsive screen. I have tried safe mode, hardware test, and factory reset. At some moments it works just fine but sometimes it would take many seconds of hang before you can use it. I have lots of free storage following the factory reset. Anybody experiencing the same problem?

Battery can easily survive one day, day and half with moderate use. And the best thing is it's durable, while other companies s say you can use it 2,3 days with one charge but after few months it only gets worse.
Just got the xperia xa yesterday for my partner and one thing he noticed, the battery drains so fast. How could this happen when XA is more latest than my xperia C3? Im deciding it to replace with other phone. disappointed with the battery life of this XA.

For a year, this is my experi... moreAnother thing to add on cons is that the paint on the sides chips VERY EASILY. So make sure to use a case but the problem is you won't be able to show off its very sleek design lol. One of the first almost-bezelless cellphone in the market. Very lightweight and thin.
Another is I've tried the snap cam HDR app suggested by one user but still my pictures look shit. Hahaha damn this phone. Lol
This phone is the lowest among xperia mid range release last yr. For a year, this is my experience with this phone.
1. Display- i have mine set at 0 brightness but still ok, at the same time that helps with battery.
2. Design is very sleek.
3. Fast charging.
4. Sony's UI is very simple, i like it that way.
5. Nougat is available.
1. Battery- drains very fast esp with videos and games. 2. Camera is slow, you hear the shot already but once you move your hands it will produce blurry pics. Front cam is almost bad also since it is 8mp only. Not for selfie addicts like me.
3. Price- i found other brands with the same price but very much capable compared to this phone!
4. RAM- 2gb only plus memory is 16gb only. With many installed bloatwares (most of it cannot be uninstalled) so you really need to buy an SD card.
5. Boot up time is so slow more than 20mins so make sure you won't be dead batt lol
6. Speaker is very disappointing. Make sure you have earphones or else you need to hear it very close to your ears.
Battery drains too fast only one and half hour screen on time. Camera flash and torch not working properly. Some times not responding and gives dark pics. Anyone facing those issues? What is the solution for those issues?my build no was 33.3.A.1.97
Randomgirl, 12 Oct 2017I own this phone 6 months now. All I can say is that you get what you pay for. You can't expec... moreHi everybody, I took a pause commenting here because of a change I have made in my personal life. Now IÂ’m back.
So among other things I did, I met my cousin from a pause of few years and he saw my XA device and he was very interested about how I maintained it and how this device felt in its hands (I kept it very clean and did upgrade it to latest Android 7.0 - 33.3.A.1.97 Â– that is a maximum and best upgrade to it till now) and I gave it to him (he had an Iphone 5C model until now). I was testing XA1 with my friend at his repair service company for a while and I was so pleasantly surprised by its capabilities.
Cpu, memory, camera, design, and Android Oreo scheduled upgrade, plus having now a special free contract offer from an electronics dealer, made me decide to give my XA as a present to my cousin (he like it very much overall) and I ordered for myself the XA1 model.
As a conclusion to all that want and still have the possibility to buy and enjoy the Xperia XA mode, please take note:
*This device is perfect for daylight photography (at least after latest Nougat upgrade even better than any Samsung at its class at least) and for any task that do not exceed its 2gb of ram limitation, it can manage everything from offline gps to some interesting games.
*Take care of it installing good/compatible software, don't flash/root it if you don't know best how this operation works (Mediatek motherboards are very bad comparing to Qualkomm ones at changing Kernel and other stuff like that) erase/stop bloatware and keep a good physical maintain (not too much humidity nor dust) and for sure nothing bad will happen to it.
*Of course, the battery remain a weak point for it, but for a price tag under 200 euros it's for sure best Mediatek device available on the market.
This is among few Mediatek cheap jewels so good luck!
I own this phone 6 months now. All I can say is that you get what you pay for. You can't expect high end specs for a budget phone (I got it for 185Â€). I use it for browsing, social media, YouTube and music. I don't play games. Battery life is just fine, day - day and half, even two days (I only use WiFi when at home). You can improve your battery life with airplane mode on and once a month you to charge it from 0-100% without turning it on. And aways try not to use it while changing. I haven't had issues with lagging nor overheating. It does overheat when you overstress it and that happens to every phone so it's just fine. Camera is just fine, I've learnt some tricks (you can find it on sonys official page). I have edge to edge tempered glass and tpu case just to make sure nothing bad happens. And of course, it's design is gorgeous. I don't mind if it's made of diamonds or plastic, I'd still use a case so.. Over all it's, I'd say, the best phone in this price range. Take care of it.
maskerter, 02 Oct 2017Please someone tell about battery life of xaPoor battery life a common coma into with this phone
Guys, I think stabilisation on video recording more good at Marshmallows than Nougat, What do you feel about stabilisation on Nougat?
