1- Slim body. Design and finishing is super. Edge-less, slightly curved edge display (Looks like Samsung Edge) makes it more attractive. As the whole body (you can say) is the Display, having a 5 inch display doesn't make the phone bigger size. It's handy
2- Camera (13MP + 8MP) is awesome. (Those who are saying that it's like 8MP + 5MP are advised to change the settings to 13MP + 8MP. Because by default it has been set to 9MP + 5MP. So you have to change the resolution settings to get the Full HD Resolution, otherwise you will hate the camera)
3- 2GHz Octacore Processor with 2GB RAM makes the phone very fast. You don't even need the 2 GB of RAM ever
4- Excellent Sound quality (Both Loud speaker and earphone). Look at the position of the Speaker. If you are putting your phone on the bed then also the speaker doesn't get coverup.
5- Fast Charging
6- Also have the separate Camera Button, which is very useful at the time of taking Selfie
7- No Hybrid Memory Card slot. You can use both 2 SIM Cards as well as a SD Card
8- Sony brand makes more sense with a reliable product quality and service
1- Low battery backup as compare to other Sony devices. Because it has 5 inch HD Display and Mediatek Processor, which consume more power (more cores in the processor means more power consumption). Still battery last for 1 day in normal use (You can but a UCH12 Fast charger, and get 5hr backup in just 10min of charging)
2- No VoLTE (You can't even get the VoLTE feature after future software update, as VoLTE is a hardware feature which is not present here). But if you are using JIO SIM then you can make calls through Jio4GVoice App, but you have to Enable the Data for that
3- No Front Camera Flash (Camera is too good, no need of Flash)
4- Fingerprint Sensor, Gyroscope is not present (Not even required for most of the users. So it does not make any sense)
5- Curved Edges. So screen guard doesn't fit on edge perfectly. (But as it has Gorilla Glass, screen not required)
6- Internal Memory is 16GB, but you will get only 10.1 GB free for App installation and storage. A major part of this 10.1 GB get consumed very fast by Android system software and Google apps.
7- Marshmallow has an option to format your SD Card as Internal memory by which you can use your memory card as internal storage and avoid the problem of Low Internal memory problem. But this feature has been disable in every Sony Xperia Phones.
Finally I'll say, it's a very good phone in this price range (Approx Rs 15000/- me Sony apni Jaan to nahi de dega naa apko). So dont worry go for it.
​Dear friends I am confused Sony Xperia XA Dual is better and Moto 4g plus.....Please helps Me.
Hlo Frnds I'm going to buy this phone. I'm confused between oppo F1s & Xperia XA.
Which is better. F1s has Almost Double Features But look wise XA is much better.
Plz suggest me any one & why?
Bought this device a month ago.
* Stunning, Premium Look and Design
* Slim / Thin
* Comfort and Handy
* Fast Charging Support ( with the bundled charger, it takes 45 mins. to reach 75% from 0%). You can purchase the fast charger for the real fast charging offered by Sony.
* Rose Gold variant looks more beautiful ( in my perception)
* Good Performance ( 7/10)
* Very Good Cameras ( Both Rear and Back ) , but might have little difference in low light conditions. Very good for daylight snaps.
* Object Tracking support
* Good color and contrast from the display, even though the display is not full HD.
* Bezelless ( Edge to edge display )
* Poor battery life. ( Average battery life for moderate users) I f you are a heavy user with 24*7 Internet and Playing games etc., then the battery will last longer for 6 to 7 hrs. But you can turn on Stamina Mode, it will definitely improve battery life than the Normal Mode.
* For a normal / moderate use; the phone is okay.
* Average or above average Loud Speakers. But clarity is good though.
This is my honest review about Xperia XA Dual after a month of use.
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2016Hey wat about its battery backup.. Am planning of buying it.. Nice phone battery is good and I like his phone in gaming and I love it nice features it look like flagship phone I just love it
the front camera quality is very bad after the last update, does anyone having the same problem? it is not sharp and it worse in video mode...
Maanwinder, 05 Dec 2016I am unable to make call from jio sim in this phn.. Net is working fine.. Is there any call se... moreXA doesn't support VOLTE so, you have to download jio4gvoice app from playstore then you can use voice calls from XA
after last update i noticed a bug, the back camera autofocus doesn't work well at all, it's slow and sometimes very slow and sometimes it does not work, please sony it has phase dedication autofocus it should be as fast as other x models!!!
cezar69, 25 Dec 2016i bought this phone yesterday...
i have to say this is the most beautiful phone i ever seen, ... moreplus i like it's wide, 66.8 so nice. but it's height is a bit long, if only if it has smaller screen because i like small phones like 4.5 or 4.3 but not very small
i noticed the front camera quality get bad when there is a bit of battery juice. this should not happen for any reason.
i hope sony can read my comments and take a notes! and update to fix these problems.
i bought this phone yesterday...
i have to say this is the most beautiful phone i ever seen, it's design is so nice...
cameras are more than great, very fast, they are like magic...
performance is great too, fast, it feels like flagship phone...
i don't know about battery back up becuase i just bought it before 6 hours or so but i guess it's not bad as other people think...
i got 2 system updates just right away when i opened it
what i dont like about it is...
the back side is made from plastic, i can live with it but if it was all metal that would be great..
the camera autofocus is fast in photo mode but not fast enough to my liking in video mode but again it's good faster than other phones in the same price range, i hope sony can make it faster in the comming updates like xperia x model...
that's all, i did not notice any problems yet..i will update the comment after while after i use it for while...
im not phone gamer im playstation gamer so i will not use a lot of battery..
it does not heat up only get warm so don't worry that's normal
that's all, thank you sony.
classic phone all features are very good
no compromise any other phones like
