This phone is great after the update. CanÂ’t say any negative. The battery is average but you could take that against the positives of this phone. I was surprised to see a lot of negative things at the beginingof the thread but that was and Android bug already fixed by the updates. Camera is superb. The bashers are just jealous. Better have an battery that is not above average than one that explodes 

In Sony phones the lens of camera is placed on a very corner of the phone. so each time we want to use camera, usually we hold it with both hands and our left hand fingers naturally comes right in front of the lens. this makes it very uncomfortable to use it.

Stop behaving like jealous people
Experia Xa has many problems. I tell you at the beginning what u will hear again at the end> never buy a Sony phone. first of all, when u call one, every time u need to turn down the volume! because it gets reset to max volume rate automatically each time your call is ended and phone goes back to lock screen. it means that every time one calls you, you should stand a very loud shouting at your ears(max volume rate)!!! or you should remember each time you want to speak, to turn it down before! I think not even a third class second hand phone ever could have such stupid problem.
2- the battery life is not as explained or expected nowadays most people want to be on line during the day, and then you need to recharge it every night to let it go on. if you need to play or do your business through your phone, then you need to recharge it twice a day!
3- I guess the designer of Experia Xa was first thinking of making a new heater, and on half way he decided to build a phone too. Or maybe Sony had already intention to make a phone with a dramatic heater,! then I suggest them to announce it immediately. why? turn on the camera, start shooting. wait for a short time even. feel the hotness on tour hands(not just warm, but really hot). or just update some of your apps. or use the phone, speak or do something for half an hour while screen is on(even at normal brightness), and feel the hotness.
4- in sound section, there are only 3 sound control instead of 4 voice level control bar that most phones have.
5- when you pull down the curtain to see the icons, you can see that only for example 5 icons plus a brightness control bar, have occupied more that 50 percent of the screen. it is not as handy as it is in other phones.
6-" Great Sony voice", dont believe it on Experia xa, it is a joke! the amplifier sound system does not respond to all video and app the same! just go for example on you-tube and try to watch a film. listen to the volume of sound, you can hardly hear it! but you may listen to a music which is already exist in your phone normally. even though amplifier is weak and output sound is disturbing! Sony used to have a better quality in older model like in ION.
7- every time you are told " update your system". repeatedly. you can not clear this message.
you want to see more...? the messaging app all the time announces "it is not responding", and more ..you may not transfer the installed apps into SD memo card as in e.g. Samsung you can,
and more.. the rounded grey folders that you make on your screen are too small and ugly... and you know what? keep away from this heater before it burns up all your money.

Battery life is considerable short compared to the Z3, it barely can last a day. Compared to the Z3 the Xperia XA is slower and less responsive.
I have an XA, my problem is that i think the touch is very sensitive, keeps the above notification bar popping out even if im not touching it. is my observation right? or there maybe something wrong with this phone?..a reply is much appreciated. thnks
