It's been about three weeks since I bought this phone and I've been experiencing many issues.
One of them is about screen sensitivity in the left and right corners, same as many other people in this comment section. Right now I'm typing and the backspace key just won't work, needs several more taps before it works. Same with the other keys/letters located on the extreme lefts and rights of the screen. I think maybe Sony is just avoiding accidental left and right presses given the the side bezels are thin. I could have liked it more if Sony just left it to us users to avoid those accidental presess ourselves.
The phone is very, very slippery and overheats all the time. I've also had LOTS of app crashes and unwanted restarts the first week I was using this, but now they're gone. I'm hoping all these can be fixed with future updates.
Upper left side touch is not working :( it seems like a common problem to all

Naaz, 06 Jun 2017Can anyone with this phone Xperia xz g3116 can confirm the model has a radio in it.I believe Xperia phones no longer have FM radio since XZ. Not sure with X, X Performance, XA, XA Ultra...

Hi! Guys! i would like to let you know how satisfied i am using my new mobile phone Sony XA1 i just purchased it last sunday and moving forward i am really happy about the phone it has everything that i want and need on the phone. I used iphone and samsung already excellent use for iphone 4g and for samsung a8 okay good but really not excellent because of the camera its like the picture is not real. i love Sony XA1 because of the camera / battery / design / specs for me its PERFECT! =) price is worth it as well and we all know that samsung and some other brands of phone is really easy to clone of imitate but Sony is not and if theres one you will really knoe if that is a clone or fake. i recommend you guys to have this mobiel phone because you will really going to like it, =)

I am having touch problem here with Xperia XA1. I bought two phones for me and my gf. Touch on the edges of the phone are not working properly. I have sent one of them to local service center in Singapore and it has been a week I haven't got any update yet.
Giving 400SGD per phone and having it to send to service center in a few days is very frustrating.
Since everyone is having the same problem, it is obviously a design flaw. Sony should recall the phones and give everyone refund.
Selling a faulty phone to customers and refusing to refund by a big company like Sony is a shame.
I will never buy any Sony products again.
i bought this phone end of april 2017, so far no major issue encountered
I suggest not to buy this phone. Using it for 3 months now. I have faced problems with keyboard and also some other swipe functions on the screen. And sometimes it is very slow to open or close an app. Overall the I feel there is something wrong with the UI or the screen. The body needs a cover otherwise scratches are seen even on sophisticated use. And it does heat up on charging sometimes. The camera is good but not exceptional. Not a phone you'll be happy with.
i bought this phone on 22 april,17. today 3rd time i submitted this phone for service. worst hardware, specially screen's hardware is too worst.
This phone is not really responsive. the keys on the edge of the screen is not responding at times. it sucks

I bought phone on 17th may. I was having minor issue with keypad touch at the edge but was not so bad. but since 2 days touch is not working on top right(almost 25% of right top) side. Major problem within 20days is not acceptable. They should replace the phone for this manufacturing defect. Gonna approach Sony Center now. Will update once return
