Poor quality control by sony.
My 5 month Xperia fall from table height. My phone has toughen glass and rubber back cover. Toughen glass was intact. But screen got cracked with bleeding light.
I gave to sony centre . They told me that; screen is broken, mother board is broken, battery got band. Cost is INR 13500 Rs.
I got screen replaced initially for touch screen issues too.
If you are pretty extra careful about your phone, then this phone is for you.
Only best thing about this phone was it has pretty awesome battery life.
i'm from the philippines,can i ask someone who bought xperia XA1 in the philippines, have you also encountered the same problem other people experienced? like the touchscreen problem(unresponsive Q and P)?
I read some old xperia tips online and tried turning stamina mode ON and set it to the lowest 15% and just found out the low battery notification no longer comes in at 30% and instead comes at 15% which makes the xa1 experience a lot better now :)
Anyone who bought from middle east? I live in Qatar, is XA1 products here good or not?
Did some more research on xda, it appears some xa1 have their bootloader hardlocked and some don't. My xa1 is from Canada and is hardlocked, very sad about this, will never be able to root :(

Touch problem hapend twice in 6 months,poor touch, not to buy bcz of touch. rear camera Awsm, frnt is ok,
I have had a very similar problem with my Sony for the touch . I used the z3 and the z5 . Loved the phone the battery and camera . However 2 phones same problem and massive issue with the service center. Only when I slapped them with a legal notice did I get my phone back after 4 weeks . However seeing the reviews it seems Sony does not seem to know how to get the touch working .
On a full battery it barely makes it through a day with very moderate use. Other users are lying when they say it can survive a day with heavy use. No way any phone can do that with only a 2300mah battery.
The smallish battery is the only real hardware flaw with this phone, otherwise it's a perfect midrange phone. The only other thing preventing it from a perfect score is that it only has one speaker, should have definitely had dual speakers since the upper and lower bevels are quite big.
