The smaller of the two XA series mid-rangers that Sony announced at MWC this February went on sale in the US last month, priced at $299.99 unlocked. Now, however, you can already grab the Sony Xperia XA1 for a lower amount.
$50 less, to be exact. Amazon currently has it for only $249, with 32GB of storage and US warranty. You do however need to hurry since there are only a few units left in stock at this price.
The Xperia XA1 features a 5-inch 720p touchscreen, a 23 MP main camera, an 8 MP selfie snapper, MediaTek's Helio P20 chipset running things, 3GB of RAM, and a 2,300 mAh battery. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
I have no issues. Using this phone for 2 months now. Battery life is great and screen is great also. No weak points here.
in what ways exactly.
Chinese craps will slow down after few months. Specs and benchmark score aren't as important as well optimized software. Sony rocks with smooth software.
