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.

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).
Sonyuser85, 09 Jan 2018Try to flash it with this firmware version: 40.0.A.5.66 and also of another country. Thanks for the info
Jaja bink, 09 Jan 2018if do factory reset to xa1 can the touch screen issue solve ?Try to flash it with this firmware version: 40.0.A.5.66 and also of another country.
ashrayspin, 08 Jan 2018How are you so sure that it's that update that is causing the problem? Any official news? Mayb... moreZ5 has some important features but trust me that speed, battery backup, speakers and camera are better than on XA1. Weird but awesome!
Jaja bink, 09 Jan 2018if do factory reset to xa1 can the touch screen issue solve ?Did you drop the phone before? Did you buy it secondhand/brand new with warranty? Are you a clumsy user or you let someone borrow the phone who couldve damage it but didnt tell you? If not then update it with the latest available firmware Dec. Patch, then do a Full Wipe/Reset... Else if it fails return the phone where you got it coz its defective.

So please don't blame on overall Sony. This model is still best in its class in all aspects. I will wait for Oreo upgrade to see if it's better. The best thing though is that Sony will quit Mediatek chips. Remember that an error of upgrade messed some red's kernels among them problems of touch. XA had relatively same problem that was solved by some upgrade.
Never buy this phone!.. it is a defective product.. me and thousands of people complaining about it, touch screen is not sensitive at the corners and sony does nothing!.
