Simply amazing phone for only $350!
Perfect physical size, perfect standard 16:9 ratio 6 inch display! Yes, it might lack some features like dual camera lens and other useless marketing tricks, but the interface and all over all performans is smooth and fast enough!
I used, the previous XA ULTRA and I was happy with overall performance.

xhin, 18 Oct 2017i chosen this mobile phone to buy but after 2 days its started to hang, volumes are not workin... moreAnyone have try the GPS and Bluetooth receiving. My current Sony XA ultra from day one has this two issue. Bluetooth can only work within 4m, GPS keep lost signal when ever there is cover walkway , bridge and road. I have sent in the service 3times time now they just can't solve it and now idea. In fact tested on another unit also same issue . Now they want to replace me with XA1 ultra and want to close my case , if XA1 ultra having same issue I won't be able to make another complaint if I accept the replacement. I am a Uber driver and I need a working phone with GPS.
Got this unit 2 days ago... Not satisfied with battery life, mid day down at 20%. Camera quality doesn't look like the given MP's. No fingerprint sensor. Choosing a ringtone from your music file is a headache. Got a little speaker which does not give loud sound compared to other phones. Getting distorted sound once volume is maxed out. Slow start up. The only thing i like is the monster screen size which is best for games and watching movies... This phone seriously needs update!
AnonD-257122, 27 Oct 2017Just go blindly for the XA1 Plus, I bought it if last week (the blue version) it's a head turn... moremassive battery life!! 😏😏😏 and it's only 2700 mah! Are you serious?
Is this phone even splash-resistant or is safe in light rain or accidental fall in sink?
And if you guys would choose between the camera quality & performance (natural-looking, great/clean audio, decent low-light shots and daylight shots that doesn't overexpose) which would you choose between the XA1 Ultra, Galaxy A5 2017 or Moto G5S Plus?
AnonD-257122, 27 Oct 2017Just go blindly for the XA1 Plus, I bought it if last week (the blue version) it's a head turn... moreTq for suggestion, i also think xa1 plus a bit better in battery and price too.. I think i know what phone i will buy later. ☺
AnonD-481725, 26 Oct 2017Xa1 plus is the best. Thank you for your suggestion. I worried just because before this, i bought xperia m5 dual and that m5 have heating prolem and auto shutdown. How about xa1 plus and xa1 ultra?
GSM Review: "The side bezels, on the other hand, are probably among the slimmest in Sony's Xperia lineup. It's bewildering why Sony wouldn't trim them on its more expensive phones in a similar manner, but we're sure they have their reasons."
Answer: Because Sony customers keep having to return the XA1 models for repairs. Shame on them for putting these phones out to market with these horrible screen flaws.
rohiexa , 26 Oct 2017which one better, sony xperia xa1, xa ultra or xa plus? please help me make decision...Just go blindly for the XA1 Plus, I bought it if last week (the blue version) it's a head turner, massive battery life, gorgeous screen for watching movies and playing games, superb camera the same which is there on the Z5, super loud speaker sound (although it has mono speaker). It's cheaper than any of the Sony phones at this size.
rohiexa , 26 Oct 2017which one better, sony xperia xa1, xa ultra or xa plus? please help me make decision...Xa1 plus is the best.
The external speaker's voice is very very low and its quality is very poor. You cant even hear the loud voice when music is being played or a movie. Not expected from such an expensive xperia phone. The tempered glass does not connect well on its edge to edge screen and results in touch problem. The battery drains quickly with Internet usage or shareit. Rest every this is great.
which one better, sony xperia xa1, xa ultra or xa plus? please help me make decision...
Danny, 09 Oct 2017I bought xa1 ultra from freedom, after a month I got touch screen problem. Dont buy this crapWhat's the problem
Yeah... Finally I bought this mobile yesterday. I got the pink one. OMG, its very huge but cute mobile. Just love it. Like everyone, I was little worry with the battery capacity. But it's doing good. About the fingerprint, it's not big problem for me. The cameras r very nice especially the front camera. It's 16 mp with flash. With the hand sensor, to take selfy picture just so easy. No need to put the timer shoot. You just make up ur hand, the camera will detect it then action n the camera will shoot by it self. It is just so perfect huge cute mobile.
I have been contemplating whether to get this or the J7 Pro or J7 Plus of Samsung. I decided to get this one and it's a GOOD decision. I just bought this phone last week and everyone who is complaining about the battery, Sony's Qnovo technology is awesome. I don't turn off my mobile data every time I go out since I have unlimited data plan and my usual activity would be an hour of browsing, an hour or two of messaging, streaming videos and music for an average of 2 hours (overall about 4-5 hours of use with about 5 hours idle) and guess what, from 70% charge and after 10 hours of no charging, I went home with 30% battery left on the phone and streamed videos for another 1.5 hours before it reached 15%. Charging is indeed fast, only 30 minutes or less to reach 50%. Screen size is awesome for watching videos and playing games. My only complain about this phone is that the screen or display makes everything looked a bit washed out or too much exposure but that's okay with me. Yes it is big to fit in a small pocket but I don't mind. I also don't care that it does not have fingerprint sensor. I've been using my Xperia Z2 for more than 3 years and I survived not having a fingerprint sensor. I can easily use this phone with one hand even though it actually has an option for one-hand use and I am not a tall or huge person at all. 4gb RAM, 64gb ROM, great battery performance, 23mp rear cam, 16mp front cam for less than 400 euros, octa core processor and upgrade-able to Oreo, dual SIM slots with dedicated micro SD slot. Plus this is SONY not just any brand. Good camera and speakers. Not AWESOME but GOOD for its price! I'll be honest and say that my Z2 has better camera but hey, it's technically a more expensive and premium phone even though it's older. This is a GREAT deal! Plus mine came with a 2 year warranty that includes accidental damage. If you want a smaller, cheaper phone, go for the XA1. I've tried it from my colleague who owns one and it's also AWESOME for its price.
