Anonymous, 07 Sep 2018Troll everywhere I have one of this and it's good it really depends on how you used itBuddy p problem is there
Firstly I am a fan of Sony phones.
Was convinced to get this phone by a super virgin mobile customer person. (thanks)
Sorry but camera pics are very dark which means using manual settings to get any pics that are half decent, My old Samsung galaxy s3 takes far better pic's
Sunshine legibility is very poor,
Key board is playing up the "p" in particular
Keeps going into safe mode.
Battery life is poor,
Still got 17 month contract left!!!
Really dissatisfied with the phone,
Disappointed..change two of them..first have dead left corner of touchscreen after 14 days...second phone get yellow stain in the same corner after 2 months... Sony never again!

Josh, 06 Jun 2018I have had my Xa1 since October (about 8months ago) and so far have been very happy with it. I... moreHi there. I wonder about your comments of this phone so far. And I'm curious to change my z5 after a month purchase, to this one, after become very very short in lifetime (I dunno if it caused the 7.0 nougat which lead to overheating issue along with fast battery-drain problems?). And how it is touchscreen however? 'Cause many users has xa1's common problems were touch issue. Is it related to newer OS 8.0 oreo or so maybe and what yours? Is it still in good condition today and not met any of those issues? Thank you😀

I have one of this and it's good

Sent it to the customer service because of the touchscreen issues, got it back a few days later and having the same problems again with the replaced/repaired phone just about one month later now. DON'T BUY THIS.
I first bought the sony xa and it got screen burn yellow lines down the left and right side of the screen so I bought it back to the shop got a exchange for the xa1 and this phone also got screen yellow burn down the sides. I was shocked it happened twice I also had problems with the wifI on both phones and the touch screen was very bad round the corners and sides. Basically this phone had more faults than the San Andrea fault. I have had about 8 sony phones since 2012 and nearly all of them had wifi problems. Its clear to me Sony are outsourcing production to cheap Chinese manufacturers to save money and hoping for the best.
From a performance point of View, phone does the work, I'm not sure however about the 23MP camera, didn't impress me at all
HOWEVER, phones usability was compromised just a few months after I bought it. Screen became unresponsive on the edges, I had to switch keyboard so I could type "p" and "q", I had to download a screen button because triangle, circle and square buttons were not working 90% of the time, I couldn't access the top bar drawer... I had to change it after 10 months.
Don't waste your money on this one
dont buy this phone. sent to warranty sony malaysia twice, touch panel/screen become not response. now same problem occurs again. no more warranty. i hope xa2 will not have same problem as xa1. such a waste for a beautiful phone.
It's a very bad model from Sony, facing the same problem, twice I changed my display with in 8 month
Problems start with some yellow patches on side, then later stop responding...
Don't but please.....

Touch display not working. I wasted my money on this otherwise great phone, but display stopped working in corners and over time it just got worse
Naresh, 22 Aug 2018No don't buy sony mobiles buy Nokia or redme or one plus mobiles in Ur range Nor Nokia or other maker doesn't have what XA ultra have. Screen, camera and speed. Battery for XA ultra may be a little weak, but XA1 ultra and mostly XA2 ultra/plus are supreme in this class. None of these devices foe now have no more problems because all were fixed by updates, of course, if you do smash it and throw it into the fire or keep it into the sun/water all day long nothing of that can guarantee its lasting.
