worst phone ever used!
Earlier used xperia L for 4 years no issue,
But this garbage christened as xperia xa1 has many bugs, many issues.
Notification drag down issue, left right side typing issue, after a year 60% of your screen will stop responding.
Sony , people will stop buying your phone.

I have to flip mine multiple times to get a single text message out because the keyboard doesn't register on the vertical right side. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PHONE.
Sonyuser85, 19 Dec 2017This phone is best you can get in its class. This site is European as I know so there might be... moreApologist. This phone is an utter piece of garbage. The touch screen issues are undeniable. I can't drag the top bar down, nothing down the right edge of the screen registers, and I can only hit the "back" button at the bottom, the "home" and "window" buttons don't work. Even then I have to hit it multiple times to work. It constantly disconnects from my bluetooth devices without reason. Finally, Sony has the balls to charge for things as simple as themes when other brands distribute things like that as value in buying the phone.
sony lovers, 28 Mar 2018Oreo update recieved Anyone updated it?? Its works properly or not??? No
New upcoming firmware v. 139, currently uploaded to IN regions. Bought phone since day 1 and no issues stated by fake trollers here. It even runs smoother since getting Oreo on it.
i bought XA1 two weeks ago.
tried to find all issues noted in comments below.
Funny thing that my phone is working very good. No touch issues (even in corners) , no update issues, no typing issues (for any letter), no any issues.
I like it. Looks very good. The only thing i don't like is > the size - to big.

Anonymous, 20 Apr 2018I installed Oreo and the upper screen doesnt respond. Its in the service center right now I'm sorry to hear that. Surely a decent cause was there. If you have warranty you are among the *lucky ones*.
Don't buy this phone totally..money waste .touch screen so poor like old Chinese phone SIGMATEL
