excellent handset, premium. Camera is amazing and its 32GB expandle. Not to pricey. Also the software is so easy to use.
SONY XPERIA XA1
Previously owner of Microsoft 950, Looking for mobile which can be easily handled by one hand. Option was Iphone SE and Xperia XA1. Though Mac user, I am not very fond of iphone.
So Bought Xperia XA1.
Used for a month. Basic requirement was call functionality, Google services, companion for android watch and music. I have not installed facebook and whatsapp.
Only one game was installed, subway surfer.
Battery is pretty good. Bluetooth, WiFi, internet connection and Location services are on for all day time, 8-8. I start with 100 percent and end with 65-70 percentages. It covers 15-20 minutes call, 30 minutes music on FM / stored music, 10-12 emails, 5-6 SMS, 4-5 pics and 5-7 minutes of Hangout. Screen brightness is around 50 percentages.
Sunlight visibility is pretty fine. Screen looks crispy even if it is 720 P.
Picture quality is 70-75 / 100 [it is not great in front of 950]. Esp in dark, it is quite grainy. Focusing is issue in dark.
Call quality is good, but network reception is relatively not so good. Where my 950 was giving me full towers, this will give me 2 or 3 / 4. But still can hear well with those numbers too.
Music and video reveals good loudness of speaker. [actually 950 was pretty poor for it].
Ring notifications has to be choose wisely, as you will miss 2 times out of ten.
I have idea sim, internet works absolutely fine for anything above 2 towers on signal reception.
CONS : Sometimes videos stutter and gives green blocks at HD video quality in you tube. If you are searching through large number of contacts, screen movement is not smooth.
Game loading time is long. Zooming images take good 2-3 seconds sometime.

Siraj, 19 Jun 2017I have problem in touch screen in edge There is a manufacture failure in Sony Xa1 with screen right and left edges. It is near impossible write with the keyboard because you can't use the letters on the right and left edges. Sony don't admitted this failure and send customers to local provider.
AnonD-678217, 18 Jun 2017Does that solve the problem? don't know yet, using for past one week, will let you know if problem persist
