This phone is seriously good. I took loads of pics at a night market today without flash and they were really crisp and clear, I was really amazed to see the quality of the pics. I must say this is the best Sony mid range device I've ever used.
Has anyone had the issue regarding fonts?
I adjusted the font size to largest but when I restart the phone the font reverts back to default?

AnonD-718839, 28 Nov 2017planning to buy this phone this Dec, i still want Sony because currently i'm still using sony ... moreNo it doesn't have double tap to turn on/off the screen. As far as XZ and XA1 Plus is concerned the XZ obviously has an edge over the latter in terms of:
*Better processor (snapdragon 820)
*64GB internal storage
*Better camera with laser autofocus
*Currently got the Oreo update.
While the XA1 Plus is also a very good mid range device and is capable of giving some serious competition to the high end phones out there.
planning to buy this phone this Dec, i still want Sony because currently i'm still using sony c5 Ultra and battery is really good no hang issues, i wanted to have an upgrade phone. I have question i hope someone can answer.

Go for the XA1 Plus although it has mediatek processor but is really fast with no heating issues at all, apart from that you get full HD 5.5" screen, massive battery life, super loud speaker and the same camera which is on the Z5.
please which is better this or z5 because i think z5 is better as it has 4k, waterproof and the main reason is a snapdragon processor so I'm very hesitant please answer me thanks
I love the brand "SONY". Especially Stylish model,dual speaker,highly display resulation, excellent camera and finally great performance. "SONY" is better then apple and samsung on my scence. from bangladesh.

Phone is just awesome.
Stellar battery life!!
This smartphone should be and remain the top selling smartphone if Sony advertise it well, just go for it.
HaRneet, 22 Nov 2017Also what's the build quality of XA1 plus like... is it also scheduled for an Oreo update?Sony is really fast when it comes to updates, the XA1 Plus already got the November security patch update while the other brands (including the flagships) are still stuck on August-October updates.
