Anonymous, 04 Apr 2017lol keep spending your money on "Sony battery performance, quality and durability" :)I'm spending once in 2 to 3 years for sony device, unlike with somebrand...
1st year, paperweight(either the phone lag like hell or repair cost a lot & yup, i keep my old device)
Sc, 04 Apr 2017Using a Sony phone you will feel different from the crowd... Yup, very different
Same tiny 2300mah battery as the original XA... Sony hasn't learned their lesson.
[deleted post]6.490.000 VND = 300 USD . The only one think i hope is Sony will update ROM with double tab to wake up. now only double tab to sleep :(
I got it yesterday in Vietnam. Design is so beautiful. Camera is very good. battery is amazing. I am a heavy user but it also can satisfy me. turn on 3G always, Facebook, messenger FB, Mail, location,weather.... 2300 mah like 3500mah
I too have a Z3 compact and like it a lot, except I dropped it and ruined screen + digitizer. Got it repaired OK but the audio & speaker output was never the same (and was never great from the start, as the reviews indicated). XA1 looks like a good replacement. I wonder if the audio volume is better than the Z3 compact? You'd think Sony, of all brands, would have excellent audio. Also, one variant of the XA1 has every T-Mobile LTE band including the new one, Band 66! Last I checked, not many other phones have it as yet.

Anonymous, 03 Apr 2017X Perf., X Compact, X, are cheaper than Z5 and have better SoC/overall specs.Yes, but only cheaper by around 50 usd in the case of the Xperia X. But never mind though, I decided to just buy the XA1 :-D

Till I smashed the screen for a 2nd time and it was a better option to get a new phone then pay to replace.. I got the X Compact. Still a good phone, allot more durable! The z3 seemed fragile..
Only ~70.9% screen-to-body ratio and a liitle 2300 mAh battery? Sony, you are "out of time"!
I like the spec and price is reasonable, downside is battery capacity. I suggest you guys just get the X Compact instead which has better SoC, Stereo, DAC, Better Cam, etc. and only a little bit expensive.
kcvg, 03 Apr 2017Yes, thank you for your advice. But I don't see any old flagships suiting me.

Either lower your expectations or increase your budget.
