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.
AnonD-548202, 18 Jan 2018Been using for a week and it's a very nice phone tbh..camera's awesome, battery is okay(using ... moreMy experience with XA1 is by most part similar to yours. 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..
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2018Any improvement for the new patch ?It's a MELTDOWN/SPECTRE security update, maybe some fixes aswell.... Eitherway don't notice any degradation in performance but i'll wait for a few days of usage since I just updated it today.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2018Stop advertising months old buggy firmware... The latest is 40.0.A.6.189.Any improvement for the new patch ?
One of the best phones ever used
Sony always gives the best of quality to it's coustmer
It's better to use a phone from a reputed brand rather than using some fully loaded Chinese phones
Just got the Jan. Meltdown/Spectre patch update so far dont see any degradation in performance due to it.
Dawn, 14 Jan 2018New Christmas present and trying to get to grips with it. There is probably a very simple ans... moreRed is for low battery, green is for Facebook messenger, Blue is for Facebook's activity, White is for phone calls/messages (Viber, Whatsapp, Phone). Anyways these notifications can be changed in settings.
vikram, 14 Jan 2018bad battery also connectivity Battery is better than any of Z5 family for example. It has the best 2300 battery backup adaptation for a 5" display. One day of medium usage it's there! 40.0.A.5.66 system user.
New Christmas present and trying to get to grips with it. There is probably a very simple answer to this, but what do the flashing red, green and blue lights mean?
Like it but connectivity is flaky for texting, wifi and bluetooth. Patches have improved the situtation but this phone seems like it was shipped before being well tested. Seems like the connectivity problems are related to the device trying to conserve power because times that it goes power crazy it has no connectivity issues at all. Too bad because it works well when it is working and the battery life is very good (too bad it comes at the cost of getting texts/emails promptly).
