Krntd, 09 Nov 2017I am using it it's a great phone. Very fast charging & too good power management & backupIt's best phone ever! Sadly for some devices the latest Nougat updates are not recommended. Be careful Sony!

It's very unfair, maybe you could threaten them and say you're filing a case against them; which, honestly, is only completely reasonable and under strong evidence.

Otherwise, you can stick to the dialpad layout by downloading third party keyboard apps on play store.

RobotPotato, 09 Nov 2017Accidental or user-caused damage is not covered by the warranty.What about scratch?
Why doesn't the Sony XA1 have the dialpad keyboard options? My previous phone - Z3 compact - did. I cannot get on with the Querty keyboard, no matter how I try! I do a lot of texting and this is really a big issue. wish I'd known they'd done away with this option before I bought it. Will this be brought back in an update?
Very disappointed by this phone. First ever sony phone that was defective. The screen issue on the borders are really true, i first read that here and still purchased this phone thingking it just isolated cases, but sadly i received one. The issues first appeared after 30days of use, started by just having issues typing on the right side then after 10 days on the left side then got worse soon after covering all sides top to buttom. Went to sony service center to complain, even sited this website opinion section that they need to look into it as a defect but they just ignored it. Worst they didnt cover warranty despite it being just a 3month old phone from purchase. They use the scratch and dent clause on they warranty document.

I have drop from 1 ft and have a bit sratch n dent on it can i replace it or add some cash and buy xa1 plus?
No gut, 07 Nov 2017Are you sure that the touchscreen issue is with the software? Sorry for bad englishYes.

I think night photos are better with 12mp(4:3) resolution than with 23mp, but over the day are better with 23mp. Am I wrong?
1. XA1 has without any doubt best cameras in its class. Much better than S7 or any Samsung at date! I have a collection of pictures took by many devices so I know what I am talking about... And its around 260$. This model is a HOT CAKE!
2. Best screen/touch/digitizer in its class.
3. Fastest in its class.
4. The problems at this device are because of some kernel issues made by its latest system updates. So if you stay with 40.0.A.3.7 version of Android, battery, camera, and screen you will not be at risk. Because of the issues of kernel, some devices will be disturbed. So wait until Sony will fix this situation by better updates or even Oreo update. Latest updates like 40.0.A.6.135 version seems to be problematic.
I am saying once again: take care about rooting or flashing, Mediatek is not made for that kind of tuning.
