Anonymous, 26 Apr 2020Touch screen is very worst. Failure model 6 devices bought for my friends and non had screen issues. With proof! Stop these crap complains once and for all!
Ignore those pedantic nerds, this is a great phone, aesthetically a delight. Bit more sophisticated than most phones, definitely give it a try.
terrible phone. sony should be ashamed of themselves.
-camera takes upwards of 5 seconds to take a photo. this issue persisted after a factory reset.
-touchscreen is extremely inaccurate, also has no palm detection
-requires special software to download files from the phone onto the computer, software crashes if you download too many files at once (more than say 30)
-audio is very tinny
-camera only lets you take extraordinarily large photos, which are all 8+MB!!! on a 16gb phone this is really silly.
-stopped getting software updates only 4 months after buying a 12 month lock in plan for the phone
-not waterproof, unlike every single other xperia phone sold. why?
-new software suite, unlike old xperia software suite where everything was open source and could be easily configured, this one locks the user into a bunch of poorly made unremovable bloatware and all the stock apps are of inferior quality to how they used to be
Dont Buy!!! Trust me. Under guarantee they change touch screen 2 times in two years. And again same problem. Yellow bars across the screen and cancel function. I just smashed it off the wall. And i am not the only one with that problem. Using xperia since 2009, just xperia, loved them. But now.... No more Sony, sorry.
Dilan, 22 Jan 2020I'm using sony xperia xa1.it is going very high heat in playing pubg and games.do not buy this... moreI think some of us need a phone for other purposes than playing. XA1 is a very good phone, doing what it supposed to do, having some good sound even with the original headphones which are not great, it's a phone that you can count on. No reason not to be buyed by a person who needs a good phone.

For those having WiFi connection issues (random disconnections or dropping even when connected), I was able to resolve mine by turning off Developer Mode.
I just hope it stays this way.lol
I am a happy user of Sony Xperia XA1. It is very fast, very good sound quality and no issues regarding touch screen at all. People who complain just does not know how to use a mobile phone properly.

Having same touchscreen issues left and right edges. Most UI elements for basic navigation and buttons are commonly top right/left corners or on the edges. So this can make something simple like typing a message or pressing send/home etc difficult. I use the Google keyboard and made the key sizes large so that helps but it's not perfect. Also going into landscape mode can help access buttons but it's not practical to keep tilting the phone.
I don't recommend this phone for this reason.
Sony has very hard phone screen until the screen doesnÂ’t work. you can drop so many times but the screen isnÂ’t smashed. but the screen doesnÂ’t work and u change the LCD the problem will start. The LCD comes for the sony phones are not as great as original. you have to fix so many time if your lcd has been smashed. Pleas be aware of LCDs when you decide to buy sony phones
