1. XA1 has without any doubt best cameras in its class. Much better than S7 or any Samsung at date! I have a collection of pictures took by many devices so I know what I am talking about... And its around 260$. This model is a HOT CAKE!
2. Best screen/touch/digitizer in its class.
3. Fastest in its class.
4. The problems at this device are because of some kernel issues made by its latest system updates. So if you stay with 40.0.A.3.7 version of Android, battery, camera, and screen you will not be at risk. Because of the issues of kernel, some devices will be disturbed. So wait until Sony will fix this situation by better updates or even Oreo update. Latest updates like 40.0.A.6.135 version seems to be problematic.
I am saying once again: take care about rooting or flashing, Mediatek is not made for that kind of tuning.
my sony xperia also problem with screen, espcially if i want to type L P or deleted. i suspect the digitizer problem. if i send to sony to fix it , is it free or do i have to pay for it? fyi my phone is still under warranty till april 2018
Nowadays need smart phone not a DSLR...camera doesnÂ’t matter ...lack of features in sony mobile ...
They doesnÂ’t have...Fingerprint scanner, gyroscope sensor etc.also need more battery power.big display,
Sony should have think about it..
I'm actually is a worker under one of the Sony center before .Since my job required me to introduce the Sony product to customer like wireless headphone, hi-fi system and so on, NFC is more convenient but my current phone does not have NFC therefore I bought the Sony xperia XA1 for it. And now I regrets.
A lot of problem coming out with this model!The screen not sensitive, USB cannot be detected, and even connect to laptop using bluetooth.from start to still function well but after a few week the problem start to appear. Even after repair also the new problem with still coming up, so bad for this model xa1
Agree that the touch screen just totally screwed up after 3 months. I bought it in HK but the Sony in Singapore refused to fix it for free. It is obvious that it is a manufacturing issue, not a warranty issue here.
SkjzZ, 02 Nov 2017How to check manufacturing date on this phone?On the sd card and micro sim slots there are a little white papers with information about the manufacturing, pull it out carefully. Mine says 17W35, that mean the phone was made the last week of August.
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2017When will receive Oreo upgrade????It will probably receive Android Oreo until May-June 2018 approximately. Sony updated the Xperia XA this year in the same months. Therefore, you have to be patience for the update to Oreo.
my god, this handset is awful. the touchscreen problem was the worst thing, many people complaining about the issue and the company dont even recall this handset. i think they are scamming us :(
oggy, 31 Oct 2017How about Sony Xperia XA1 in Indonesia? Is it good? Do you guys also encountered touch screen ... moreI think the country is not relevant. It seems like the first batches were the ones that had the screen issues. I have read that later batches have their display issues rectified. Make sure to check the manufacturing date when buying the XA1.
Question mark, 31 Oct 2017Is there a "double tap to wake up" here, anyone, please respond....???No, it isn't.

AnonD-711723, 29 Oct 2017Sound quality is terrible and it's very quiet as well. :(
If you don't really listen to music... moreThe stock sound quality is bad and max volume is too low because Sony firmware used horrible defaults.
The stock music player is trash, I have poweramp and fixed the low volume problem by raising the preamp inside the equalizer, I also tweaked bass and treble to improve sound quality.
