this phone is bad. i thought sony would fullfill my expectations to them but its not. there so many problems in this phone. if you want to buy a good phone with a good price you should go to samsung. im not advertising samsung but it is worth for your money. and go away with mediatek!! My issues in this phone is the touchscreen problem and the quality of the phone cause one time my phone sony xa1 fall on the ground but its not too high and not so crunchy but when i get it i saw the part of the screen turned black :( thats why the quality is not good for its price. the battery also is average but still it not fullfill my time when using this phone. the speaker also is kinda low but when you use earphones it become more better.

Not-A-SonyFanAnymore, 18 Dec 2017Had enough with stupid sony, buying xperia M5 twice change motherboard, bought the xperia XA1,... moreM5 was probably worst device from Sony in its history of electronics. Surely not well done because was made with Mediatek processor by some Chinese franchise, with all sorts of issues. XA and XA1 were based on same weak Meadiatek but with better quality of manufacturing, sadly with same weird Chinese franchise. Indeed Sony and Mediatek found its best fit too late, after many issues solved by buyers nerves. But battery, speed, camera, and touch, as much as they worked still did better as much more expensive other makers devices. XA1 as I did fiund out, have been built on two different franchises. One screw it with touch quality and other did a stock with no problems. Problematic stocks were most built for China and India some came also to Europe, as I know. With all those issue, Sony is still better that Samsung and Apple or Lg quality overall using Snapdragons processors.
Had enough with stupid sony, buying xperia M5 twice change motherboard, bought the xperia XA1, then the screen problem not response, sent to warranty and need wait for 1 month, after come back from warranty, i'll used for 1 month plus, again the screen not response at the top...wasting money buying this shit sony. now XA1 so scratch after they change new LCD.
BlackBird, 17 Dec 2017I bought this amazing Xperia several days ago. Its working fine. Its really fast and stylish! ... moreSame here. One month and still very good! All my Sony devices with no problems, only defective lens on some devices. XA1 is kicking ass much more expensive devices. Try not update its system until Oreo. My device is G3112, 40.0.A.5.66 system. Good luck!
I bought this amazing Xperia several days ago. Its working fine. Its really fast and stylish! Screen color vividness is awesome. It has no problem at all. Actually there is no feature which this phone doesn't support.
I hope I won't encounter those sort of problems about touchscreen and speaker that you mentioned :-)
I have my half a dozen SonyEricsson and Sony old phones and all of them are still working fine; It's why Sony is my favorite brand.
I am very disappointed with Sony Xperia XA1, It is really very worst product by Sony. Facing daily basis hanging issues, whenever internet access and you get lot of notification "System UI isn't responding" pop up open
This is the worse Sony phone I've ever used. Just three months and the phone has problems with the touch screen and faulty speaker. I'm a Sony fun, but very disappointed. Never try the XA1...
The only problem that i have encountered is the low quality of plastic (back cover). I used this phone for almost 1 month and all the scratches are everywhere at the back cover.

Differences are big because of Android's system compatibility with some apps. XA1 have other settings and apps that can make it work (at least partial).
Someone who has the model g3123 has had problems with the touch screen? As they say below that usually the defective are the Asian and perhaps European versions. I plan to buy it because in my country Uruguay the g3123 is the one that is traded
Had an Xperia E4 perfectly fine good on the Internet storage not so great struggling to find a replacement battery for it so bought the xa1 but you can't open Internet links through email etc problem with Java how can the newer version of your phone be worse than the old version
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2017How about bad QC?Every region have its own QC depending of people and its education. Depending of that products and service centers are better or worst for all makers not only Sony. In my region in was only 12 cases of screen failure and of 100, but a specific well known and important store changed them all to its clients. Of course there are stores and distributors that don't change anything and vanish from the market and that is very important for everybody to search and find.
I had screen problems. Got it repaired by Sony repair. I had to wait ling to get it back.
Few days after receiving it. I made a call phone screen went off. Noting on screen. I didn't know whether I was on call or totally shut down. I pressed power button to turn it on, clicks nothing happens. Then I heard a voice made me realized call has been answered. After call ended it came back on. Tried another call same thing happened. I will never touch Sony phones again.

Sonyuser85, 05 Dec 2017Xa1 it's top notch. The XA1 is complete garbage. After only two months I'm on the LONG list of people who have faulty touchscreens. Try using a keyboard when you can't hit the P or return keys - so frustrating. It also requires frequent rebooting for Bluetooth functionality to work with my car.

Anonymous, 07 Dec 2017Sony fans on this website are so easily triggered that they can't even see a joke.The worst joke in here is to believe a least performance device can be priced at 1000 $ and worst ever people to be accepting this even as a joke... More than that, X has problems with the screen, green lines affecting the usage... So what a world!
Some XA1 may have some flaws but its price is reasonable and its performance it's great!
So think again, be fair!
