T K from London, 20 Jun 2018DO NOT BUY XPERIA Xa1 DO NOT BUY DO NOT BUY DO NOT BUY!!!!!! Entire screen losing all functio... moreSee, I was right... Mad people all around, but zero care and understanding of this issue! Sony take care because some users are dangerous!
i feel you guys we have the same problem the touch issue in this device but luckily it was fixed. after a month i bought this phone. the edge of the screen in top and side of the keyboard doesn't recognize my touch. I felt bad and after that i returned it to their service center and luckily it was fixed. great phone but im not satisfied with the life of battery and it has overheating issue while charging but in gaming it is normal to your phone to get hot but this phone is a little more hot than other phones.. great ui and the os update is good i hope i get android p in the future using this phone hehe
DO NOT BUY XPERIA Xa1 DO NOT BUY DO NOT BUY DO NOT BUY!!!!!!
Entire screen losing all functionality around edges, bottom, middle top and right side. Literally is now useless. Nearly threw it off the balcony of my building multiple times this week out of anger when i try to send a one sentence business text to clients and cannot even click the letters. This phone is a disgrace for nearly 350$ cad. Absolutely sickening been doing this since 8 months in and im literally the most careful phone user possible. I work a sales job wearing a suit and it sits in my pocket only. Ive NEVER dropped it on any hard surface even once. I do not abuse it. I literally was super careful to treat it well always because i wanted to make it last years. Luckily im under warranty but have not called freedom mobile yet, going to demand a different model or new replacement. Sickening, I have wasted so much time dealing with this going to call them in the morning and ask right for the manager. AGAIN DO NOT BUY.
Anonymous, 31 May 2018I've never been this dissapointed in Sony. I have had my phone for 4 months and it is no longe... moreI replaced my Xa1 screen in two times. Again the same problem. I don't no why Sony is not trying to solve the problem. I thought it will effect sony's other product.
I bought this phone in Feb 2018 from Flipkart, it start showing touch issue as notification bar not working, gradually whole left of phone not working then I went service centre though it was not my fault only few scratches, they charged 33% of new phone n gave me new phone after one month, now after using two weeks this new phone also started showing same problem. can Sony stop fooling people...
Syuser, 17 Jun 2018Admins please don't delete my replies anymore. These people are reckless. Hiding such a truth ... moreAnd which firmware should we flash? Can you spell you out for us? Which phone manufacturer requires its users to flash a different firmware from the one preinstalled so that the phone can be used? Do you know how ridiculous this is? People are relating their experience with this phone and it is up to the reader whether to take the chance on getting a potentially defective copy.
Ghggh, 16 Jun 2018This phone was so bullshit i cant fking touche edges i hate this so much i cant type and play ... moreAdmins please don't delete my replies anymore. These people are reckless. Hiding such a truth will make other people believe stupid things. Flashing XA1 solve this problem. These people don't know to set an alarm properly and you take their trolling in serious letting their opinions. Please admin stop being untrue to most XA1 users and stop deleting my most sincere opinions. This phone have no such thing as unrepaired issues. XA had the same issue. Problem was fixed. Stop cutting the leafs and cut the roots. These few people are blind and have no intention to search in this forum or other forums for the solving of this problem.
This phone was so bullshit i cant fking touche edges i hate this so much i cant type and play properly ughhhhhhhhhhhhh
This is the first SONY I hate !
There is corners sensitivity problem (even it's sensitive if the phone is locked) thus I guess it's a software problem.
I can't touch 3 to 4 mm around the screen, I contacted local support (my phone still under warrantee) and they can't fix the issue.
Don't buy XA1 :-(
rdcanfs, 09 Jun 2018I want to change my xperia xa1 for the xa2. Do you think that is a good change? I love the xa1... moreSnapdragon is miles better than MediaTek. Not only that, XA2 has bigger battery. Though it is slightly more expensive but you lose dedicated SD Slot.
I want to change my xperia xa1 for the xa2. Do you think that is a good change? I love the xa1 but the 5.2'' screen on the xa2 it's calling me to buy it. thanks
Sonyuser85, 12 May 2018Beware of indolent people! If you ask them where to set a clock alarm in this device they will... moreMajority of all phones of XA1 sold in India were made in China and are having touch issues along the edges and corners after 3-4 months.
Majority of these were sold by Amazon and Flipkart.
