Nice divices. I have this phone more than a month and is OK. I wish that the battery was a little bit of bigger, 3000 mhA will be good. Camera is OK in all conditions, the OS is 7.0 out of the box and so far no problems whatsoever, Rom is 16 Gb free but you can add a SD card. Overall is a decent device.
hi, don't have a xa1.... but if you have one. 32gb ... how much of rom is free? 20 gb? less?
I bought this phone three months ago, and it works perfectly all this time, but a few day ago I feel like the touchscreen it's less responsive, most specifically when I press the letter "P" ... When I bought it I knew about this problem, but I took the risk :( Sony NEVER AGAIN

Never upgraded though just waiting for Oreo. It works like a charm for its price. Camera can exceed any expectation, set in the right way. For me it's much better than any Samsung in its class (A or J) even Huawei in its class. If it had front camera flash really was the perfect device. Battery backup is better than any Sony Z5 model, very good upgraded.
For fans, here are a few great camera samples took by me (click next): https://www.esato.com/phonephotos/viewphotos.php?pid=89322&uid=224273
It was my first time to buy a Sony phone (XA1 G3116) & it really pays off... I already used several diff brands, but up until I used Sony, honestly, im totally impressed..this phone is COOL..
-from its slim design (w/c im impressed the most),
-its Xperia features/actions (that made it distinct from other brands), when u are watching movies; it will auto adjust the volume that will not damage ur ears, as well as the brightness, etc..
-fast charging battery..in just 15min I already have 50% battery life..it will not let the phone overcharged! I once slept when I forgot to unplug my phone but it will stays on 90% to avoid overcharging & then goes up to 100%..amazing..
but I suggest to use wifi when browsing the internet since data consumes more of ur battery & there are heating problems sometimes.
-camera is amazing too..I love the bokeh effects.
-some inconveniences I have during the first week I have the phone are fixed after I updated the latest software version and install latest system updates.
-so far I never encounter touch screen issues as what others are saying here..
No wonder why Sony is a reputable brand.

Make sure you get it under warranty just in case.

Donna, 19 Jan 2018Can't get a signal at all, I've tried three different networks all of which I've had full sign... moreWhat country u from or where u buy the XA1? Show proof before stating falacy just to troll/bash Sony.
mybs, 19 Jan 2018is sony experia xa1 a good phone yes or no It's an ok phone if you can bare with MT SoC and small battery or just get the XA2 with bettee SD630 SoC and Big Battery.
Donna, 19 Jan 2018Can't get a signal at all, I've tried three different networks all of which I've had full sign... moreThere are so many causes that can lead to that issue of bad signal that now it's useless to mention. Truth is if you know how to handle it, you can beat in a second devices that are from a much better class. I am using the model with two sims G3112 and never had problems with signal on both. I may say that it's better than Samsung S8. I was having a country side call with bad signal zone with an S8, and S8 was crap comparing to XA1 in the same zone. So stop blaming this device if you don't have any clue about how to use it.
NN, 20 Dec 2017Yes, i have problem. In indoors there is no signalCan't get a signal at all, I've tried three different networks all of which I've had full signal strength on with previous phones, but with the Xperia on a good day the most I get is one bar and that doesn't last more than a few minutes at a time. At first I thought it might be 4g but I've also tried it on 3G but still nothing. Even outdoors is a poor signal. Very disappointed ! Camera is good I'm still finding my way around android as I've always had iPhones but didn't want to pay as much this time :( so I'm not sure performance wise how good it is for the lower price range, it's not the most responsive touch screen which seems to be a very common issue. I'm regretting buying it now tbh. I wouldn't say it's totally crap (although it's not much use without a signal haha) but I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Sony is always the best , but never blame sony incase of defective one's it may be b.cos of dispatchers also. best phone with cool specifications @ a affordable price.

It works very well, with occasional stutters (dunno if due to OS or specific application, in my case Instagram). Regarding updates, you can freely update it to latest available OTA version (7.0 base OS, Dec 5 2017 security patch here in Europe), Sony is very diligent and tests stuff before releasing it to users, hope they will deliver promised upgrade to 8.0 (Oreo).
Been using for a week and it's a very nice phone tbh..camera's awesome, battery is okay(using stamina mode most of the time)..no complaints abt the screen either..build quality is excellent but performance could be better..but, should I upgrade mine to the latest software?I'm still on the stock one and I'm not really familiar with xperia devices and how the system updates works..
