when I put my micro sd cad at first to this device it erase all the data in it automatically... :'( plz don't put your sd cad without any backup .
This phone really works for me,I don"t mind to switch on and off data,or wi-fi,disabled some apps that I don"t use,keep location off-mostly,this save me battery life.Display is great,speaker just the best,not stereo though,have it around 70% on and microphone too good,reception is great,even in places that I didn"t have with Iphone,don"t use much camera but still make good photo by my opinion.This phone makes every thing I need and even more,don"t see reason to look around,hope Sony will change the list for Oreo update and XA Ultra will be included too.I think this phone not for person who like to keep screen on more than 5 hours per day and not for heavy gamer,the rest will be happy to use it.
I am using this phone. One of the worst phone i ever used. It's having many software issue. Very bad user interface. Very Poor camera experience. Not recommend to buy.
Im using this phone for over a year. One thing I dislike is i got a single sim!well my bad coz i ddnt checked it. Its battery life is only 2700maH, so unbelievable for a 6.0" display. The camera is great but not too good for low lighting on rear cam. and the worst part is its internal memory of 10gb which is not enough for an android esp for updating apps.The satisfying part for me is its selfie cam of 16mp which is so natural. Im planning to buy huawei nova 2i to replace this first sony phone i have. Still im thankful for its service..:)
I'm going to buy this phone even at 2018. what i loved is it\'s Black charming look? i have heard about UI and camera problem. what is it plz reply honestly. and, does this phone supports Google's Face Unlock feature? Thanks in advance.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2018Yea i don't know why uni always forced to closeI had the same problem,but not now,I downloaded theme from Sony,different from the one that come with device,more beautiful and never have request to close UI.
I can't recommend this model to anyone, I have used this model more than one year and the back camera is more than pathetic... Very poor experience. Also it's internal memory after some media uses not reliable. I love Sony devices but for this... A big No
This phone easily overheats and thermal throttles itself. Don't bother buying this piece of crap
This is my first Android phone,last 5-6 years used Blackberry7, 10 devices and Lumia phones,but nothing to do both get to EOL.
I"v got used XA Ultra,around 1.5 years old,but from friend who really well took care of it,He just like me dosen"t use much apps only calls,sms,email,browser,some music,makes photo occasionally(documents)scanner and so on.I have to say wowwww,for that purpose this is my best phone ever. I have zero problem with reception,in Toronto freedom mobile,just like Blackberry,call quality is outstanding,much better then the phones I used before,great speaker to listen music,Screen just wow-best for mid ranger,battery is good too for my usage,metal frame+ Naugat updated,Sony UI is great,smooth,fast scrolling when ever I try.........
Very good phone for person like me,of course not the fastest device in the market,not best camera and so on ,but any phone have it"s advantage and disadvantage,pros and cons,I just found good phone to get used to Android OS with out braking the bank,it"s free for me.
So for me 9 out 10,why not 10 out 10 bcs nothing is perfect in this world,even phones 1000$ have cons.Don"t expect from this device performance like Iphone 8 or Galaxy 8 and You will be OK.
I loved this phone the minute I saw its size, price and camera. It was relatively good at first sight and I'm not the richest person in the world so I went for it. The only game I did play on it was Legacy of Discord: Furious Wings and the app ran very smoothly (but I unistalled it soon after because it became boring). However, this phone's storage eventually drove me insane. I found myself resetting it every 2-3 months after all the bloatware build up and honestly I wasn't going very easy on it either. I have a whole bunch of social media apps I use and others such as Wattpad and DeviantArt which I don't see others use very often. Though I did have a bunch of apps for "just in case", I'd install them very early on and that'd be it. The phone eventually would start filling with other bloatware I did not need to the point where system UI would shut down. I'd go through my album every once in a while to make sure I'm not that person that has thousands of useless screenshots that eat up space for no reason, clear my downloads regularly and clean app cache every day. So might I remind you, I install all my apps after resetting my phone and I still have about 4-5GB of memory left on it. From that point on I don't install anything. I did have a lot of music, but it was on the memory card. So might I ask as to how 4-5 GB of "free space" out of the 10GB (not 16GB, cause there's the bloody system) gets filled that bloody fast? The camera was also nowhere as good as I hoped it would be, so for a rating... This phone gets an unstable 7/10 from me.
Would you guys recommend me this phone in 2018? Iam notva gamer. Just For daily use, youtube and camera sometimes.
Solstice, 12 Oct 2017This phone looks so elegant and premium, I have not met anyone yet guessed price of this phone... moreGreat review. People must recognize that this is a low-cost phone. The 2 things that annoy me most is battery life (solved by carrying an external battery charger) and the low memory (16 gig). Oh yeah, and the memory-hogging bloatware that cannot be removed. Other than that, serves my needs well. I love the big screen, which was the feature that attracted me to this phone. I don't play high end games. It plays media well, and the sound quality through headphones is good (it powers my full-size Akai phones well). If you don't need a Samsung Galaxy 8, get this phone for 1/3 the price.
Very good sony phone,best in xperia series,using it for 2 months, no problems only rarely system UI forces close but Okay, display is very good 3 Gb ram handles everything smoothly maybe once it slutters while playing high end games and definitely better than other sony phones in this price segment. Sony xperia and pixel series are the best sturdy tech phones for guys whereas girls can go for iphones being very delicate.
This phone is garbage, don't waste your money. The phone storage was so low and the system UI is always forcing close.
VC@HK, 18 Jan 2018The internal memory is very little which is not usable. The default memory leave around 8GB fo... moreIf you receive Whatsapp's IMAGE message from friends more than 200 per day is maybe not enough but for about 20~30 that is just fine, it is better to move the Whatsapp photos to save in the SD card, I just never try it yet. I also use the Facebook and Messager at the same time, but Facebook is a ram sucker, so I use the Chrome or other browsers to launch the Facebook webpage it pretty decent. I also try out Facebook-lite-version it is just framing the layout like an app but the Chrome is much faster.
I suggest 2018 should have at least 32GB internal storage like XA1 Ultra.
