Sadly people complaining about its touch issue remain a mistery for me. I own a dual sim model and didn't face any problem. Camera is over competition in every aspect. Battery has a record abacus for its 2300 capacity. Best bargain.
navneet, 24 Nov 2017which one is better xperia xa1 or mia1 ?? plzz suggestXperia is better in every way...but it doesn't have fingerprint
navneet, 24 Nov 2017which one is better xperia xa1 or mia1 ?? plzz suggestI can t also decide...
Looking between this two models.
I m worried abaout to many complains of users for Sony.
My suggest is to read final verdict of MiA1 in review.
I will probably buy some Xiaomi model.
MiA1 or Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 PRO.

Unresponsive on the right side and downward as well as the swipe down notification. Sony does not seem to want to want to address this issue which a lot of xa1 users are experiencing
Bye bye sony!
After one week of using the device (dual sim model G3112) I have to say that my expectations are met without any (major) compromise.
Pros: understated looks, 2-day battery life, decent display, very useful camera, snappy overall performance.
Cons: fiddly trusted face smart unlock, tiny mono speaker, painfully slow charging (with packed charger), sony bloatware, late security patch updates (still on August 1).
This phone is a secondary one, used for travelling purposes mainly. So light to medium use, no gaming, lots of photo taking, navigating, media streaming, blogging, all with minimal google services dependence. If your use case is anything like mine then an XA1 could be the right pick at 220-240 euro point. There are cheaper offerings out there but warranty (2-yr carry in) and support (Oreo guaranteed) provided by sony is worth the premium imho.
1. got my phone repaired for screen issue last month and running smooth now. only problem problem is the backside finishing not done well as there is gap seen in the backside which can be disappeared by slight push but the result is temporary. now using a safety casing to hide this, that also hides XA1's beautiful outlook. :/
2. updated my XA1 to recent OS update and found strange bug. everytime restarted my phone and found font size changed. this is weird... anyone facing the same ? :(
Sent my XA1 for repair 5 weeks ago for touch screen issue, last i heard (few days ago) they were waiting on parts. Seems a lot of people having touch screen problems. Probs skip sony for a while after this one.

Suppliers recommend to return the... moreThe black color was distributed more than the others, so it's not a criteria about these issues. It's about Mediatek and it's kernel adaptation that Sony did it badly wrong in its firmware distribution, but only for a specific set of XA1 devices.
shawon, 18 Nov 2017Which one is good xa1 ultra or xa1 plusUltra is better if the size it's not a problem for you.
AnonD-392500, 18 Nov 2017Buy A5(2017). It has no such issues and it is simply brilliant.Cannot be compared A5 with XA1 regarding camera. XA1 rocks! A5 has overall other problems appearing in time (battery, cpu and ram usage and slowness) not to mention it's much more expensive than XA1. XA1 has louder speakers and more natural screen colors than the bluish tint of A5. I know what I am talking about!
Saiju , 19 Nov 2017Selfi cam is not good It's amazing! It allows manual controls like iso and shutter! Use different camera app!

Nougat upgrades mess up some devices. Don't upgrade in any way, it works perfect with factory system version.
