Have had XA1 ultra for 7 months now, and I'm still happy with it - I don't notice a difference in battery life from my previous Samsung - best phone I've had for videos, sound is good.
Very durable design (sad to say I drop it daily, never had a case)
Only issue is scarcity of accessories locally, must be bought online.
Considering price, features, and how much I like this phone, If smashed or lost I would buy another out of contract, even after seeing more recent offering from other manufacturers.

shawon, 18 Nov 2017Which is best mobile in 300 - 400 dollarSony xperia Xa1 plus could be the most balanced best midrange smartphone in this price range, unless you want huge screen like the Ultra ones.
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2017I am having the same issues, plus it isn't really possible to adjust the brightness If you wanna make the brightness of the screen more, dont make active the adaptive brightness mode in setting. And if u wanna make more bright more, dont make active stamina battery mode, but it make the battery drain fast.
I am facing the problem call recording while connected call. This feature is available small mobiles but this option not available in this.
I have been 3 weeks using this mobile. I love it even more. Just make active fulltime ur Stamina mode for the battery then 2700 mA is Not a big problem. (without stamina mode active, the battery will drain fast). The screen is excellent, the two cameras r very nice. It's very smooth n fast. I just love it.
this phone is amazing got it from eBay for 260$ open box in a great shape and i enjoy every minute of using it - games - pictures - music - YouTube everything is smooth and great for that price ... highly recommended phab .... great work from sony ... i also not recommending any Samsung product as there customer service is the worst and there products are copy's from other company's
