Xperia xa1 is the greatest smartphone disappointment ever. Sadly, I have to drop Sony and go for something else. The edges of the screen are totally dead.
It is a very good phone to use but i just wanna know is it a Waterproof phone or not ?
salman, 12 Mar 2019this is not good cell phone after update too much hanging problemVery Good phone. I don't know what the other users are having problems with this phone.
USB-C, holds battery good, beautiful camera at 24 MP, and I've rarely had any problems with this phone.
If you take care of it, the phone will take care of you.
Simply put, its much better than my cracked up Samsung Galaxy J3 Luna Pro.
I bought this for the 23MP camera, but the screen and processor doesn't seem to be able to handle it.
There's a delay of a few seconds between each shot, which doesn't sound like much, until you need to take quick burst shots.
When viewing images, they take around 30 seconds for them to actually load their full quality.
The front facing camera is really poor unless you're standing in direct sunlight or really bright lights.
Bloatware and apps which you can't uninstall.
When having more than one app open, and wanting to switch between them, such as Google, Images, and Facebook, instead of taking you back to where you left off, it just resets the app, which is frustrating.
Trying to drag app icon to a different page is almost impossible; you drag the icon to the edge of the screen, and either nothing happens, or it tries to create a folder with another app.
Edges of the screen seem less sensitive than the rest of the screen.
Randomly disconnects from bluetooth, especially when Wi-Fi is enabled.
Randomly fails to recognise SD card, and has "corrupted" mine twice, losing all my photos and videos.
Keyboard can be a bit laggy.
When swiping to unlock, it sometimes doesn't recognise a full swipe of the screen, and I have to keep swiping a number of times until it displays the PIN screen.
This is my first Sony phone, so I'm not sure if it's phone specific or brand specific issues, but I regret buying it.
This is my 3rd Sony phone and i am using Sony mobiles for a long time.
As a user I am not happy with the mobiles
Sony Xperia XA1 is having screen touch issue in corner lines.
I have already repaired my phone in warranty period, but still I am facing this issue after 3-4 months.
Honestly worst phone I've had this is my 3rd time having a Sony phone other 2 where brilliant I got this in June since then it's been sent away 3 times I've had the phone 4 months altogether got it back 8 hours ago it randomly turns off only turns on with a charger will turn off if you disconnect the charger to soon after a while this stopped working the first time second time it worked 2 days of connecting a charger then dead the last time I walked from the store to my car and it stared again all they do is a software update and that's it so I will say save your time and money this phone is terrible I've to go back to the store tomorrow and I'll be getting a Samsung never had an issue been using my S5mini as a backup and I've had it years apart from the battery being shot it's great and I worked on a farm when I had that it's fell of roofs its fell in wet mud been soaked in me pocket ran over by sheep and it's still going all these years later so disappointed in sony oh and trying to use the P is a nightmare aswell and the emojis are terrible too overall I'd rather walk around with a landline up me hole
I have tried many of the calibration techniques shown in the sonymobile FAQ, however I still have touch problems on the sides (particularly right side), top and bottom. When I am playing a game, I cannot swipe up the home buttons (before I used to be able to do it, after exhausting moments of trying). Also I cannot pull the notification bar down. This is very annoying as there are many phones that have exceptional screen quality for the same price.
Another thing that I wanted to point out is that in the GSM Arena review on the Sony Xperia Xa1, it said that it takes less than a second for the camera to pop out after pressing the button. That is not true and it takes at least 5 seconds for me.
Going back to Sony, the whole camera button is a gimmick, because now, in Android 8 (Oreo), almost everyone phone has the option for a camera button. (All you need to do is double tap the power button very quickly.
snm, 24 Jan 2019Avoid this phone if you can. The touch screen loses sensitivity after a short timeI actually thought i was the only one only to google and find out tens of people with similar problem of losing sensitivity along the edges. Very annoying!

-how do I check my text messages? Serious question. I can find the call history but not sms history
-compass doesn't work. Tried with several apps, tried the weird figure of 8 thing that makes me look like a moron.
-alarm stops randomly if you move your phone slight. Sometimes. Sometimes it doesn't and just goes on and on and on and on and on and ooooon and it repeats after 5 minutes just SHUT THE HELL UP ALREADY.
-camera button is at the lower bottom so if you hold with your right hand the phone (which most do) you might turn on the camera by accident.
-constantly have to disable software update app because sony wants to download their malware. No thanks.
-3 gb ram and 1 gb ram wasted doing nothing
-one speaker that gets immediately muffled when holding the phone horizontally.
Other than, decent phone I guess. Nothing impressive like being able to record phone calls. No thanks I don't want a 3rd party app that I pay for or constantly shows ads. It doesn't even have a notepad, wtf?
LondonTrip, 02 Jan 2019This sony Xg3116 has been generally good, except that this is not working well during riding i... moreIts connectivity is very good. You may have issues because of other factors. I know what I'm saying.
i think i have to concur with others. i also experience problem to click x on the corner screen. i have to rotate my phone horizontally before i able to click. otherwise im happy woth other performance, given with cheaper price... the battery is short lived. usually batery will be out at 5pm....or even earlier at 1pm if actively used
This sony Xg3116 has been generally good, except that this is not working well during riding in tube in London.
Is this simply because my phone's connection(ee) is good enough?
Or some problems in settings for data roaming?
