Had this phone since it was released. Awesome phone. AFTER I adjusted the power options, I've had no problems with battery life. With so many charging options available to us these days then there's no excuse to have it connected when your at home or work. FAST charging! Battery lasts me all day at school and I'm on WiFi too. Camera takes stunning pictures, and the sound quality shames any Apple product. Storage is not a problem after buying a large Micro SD card. Runs fast for all the apps I use. Heat is not a problem. Gets warm but so does any device if your running too many apps at the same time.
Any comments that say this phone sucks are all BS. I would bet they didn't read the owners manual and didn't take the time to properly setup the device. Go back to your i-devices and leave the beasts to the people that take the time to set them up right.
ALWAYS READ THE FRIGGIN' OWNERS MANUALS!!!
Dear all. I bought this awesome phone on Oct 23rd, 2016 at Canada.. Honestly, i really love this phone.. Once you buy the phone, please update the software first before you do. (it will show notification once you go to settings...).. You need at least 200 MB - 400 MB of data for this. People who don't do this, might have all these complaints..
Regarding the phone, it has a gorgeous display at the best SONY BRAVIA engine. You know the quality of this engine. Stunning pics and videos. This is the king of camera.. Lots and lots of features like a DSLR.. You will feel the chill on your pics.. Battery life is superb. Don't know why people are complaining about this. They has 2 settings for battery.. STAMINA mode and ULTRA STAMINA mode.. Turn on this and see the difference. I agree 16 GB storage is less.. But, come on guys this is Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Use your SD or Micro SD card as the internal storage.. This is the excellent feature on new Android.. Read more on the Android..
Overall, SONY is not a new company. Its been there for many decades, even before i born. If they give certain limited features like 16 GB storage, that doesn't mean they didn't think of their valuable clients. They try to combine the power of Android + Hardware.. SONY products will never disappoint you.. I happy to say, i own SONY 55'' 4K TV, SONY speakers, SONYHead Phones, SONY Xperia Tab and now the SONY XA ULTRA.. I am one of the happy customer is SONY..

C5 performing better than this one,. Eye thing my decisions is wrong I want buy this phone.. And bettery life short, hanging problem...
robin, 24 Oct 2016I want to buy this phn. But someone tell me the has some problem. Firstly it is getting heat v... moreAll phones has a warm condition when we use some time
It is normal warm in XA Ultra
For Samsung galaxy phones..they are hot like a hotplate even explosive like note7...
Battery life is OK for 1.5 day and heavy use for one day like most phone's does
Don't get wrong the starting..you install and update and transfer apps and data and so battery drain quickly
Of course it is normal as we are very heavy use in New-buy phone
Disabled some google features you do not use and you should switch SONY unique stamina mood always on..
By the way XA Ultra has very fast download speed
For camera.XA Ultra is Lord of the selfie beating all Samsung phone included galaxy s7 and s7 edge...gsm arena review has prooved it
Have good days with XA Ultra
Keep also in mind I am using XA Ultra
I want to buy this phn. But someone tell me the has some problem. Firstly it is getting heat very soon. secondly it has low battery life. But i think 2700 mah battery is not soo good but average. If I buy this. Will it be right decision for me? ?. Please help me.
one of the most stupid phones i ever bought.........battery life totally sucks, processor is totally fucked up, the phone is so slow can hardly believe that phones from OPPO performing better than this one, went to Sony they just changed the PCB but still is a stupid phone..no changes..wish could ask Sony to refund the money....if just the battery and the processor is changed this phone can be a super hit...........

Switch on Stamina .mood always on..performance is a little bit delay BUT only a little bit merely
Setting via app and you have to disable some google apps service
Moreover you have to update SONY updates occasionally
Keep in mind we have a busy times when we start using the new phone's...and so battery is used heavily
BUT for daily use..XA has good battery life..
I am a real SONY XA Ultra USER..I mean I am not NOT troller...
Have good times with XA Ultra

I bought sony xperia xa last night. before i sleep the battery is 26% when i woke up its totally drain. I also experience it is heating when i actually just browsing.. can i still return this?
Got this 3 weeks ago, Overall it's a good cp. There are two downsides in this phone. First, is the battery. Sony must be out of it's mind when it placed a 2700mAh in a 6 inches cellphone. The battery drains fast. Second, the fone emits so much heat when you are using the camera. Emailed Sony about it and the only thing they told me was to upgrade the system. Should it be a hardware issue and not a software one?
Forhad.FTF, 08 Oct 2016Yes, the battery is good, unless you use camera app much. The camera uses much battery. Otherw... morehowto use stamina tnat can restrict apps? will it affect the apps from functioning like games app? thanknyou for yhe answer
Unfrench, 17 Oct 2016I am very much perplexed! Regarding the #Sony_Xepira_XA_Ultra cameras, the reviews are either ... moreThe cameras are both quite good. I have the phone (although I'm thinking of returning it) and have been very, very impressed with the cameras. This is the only selfie camera which consistently provides good selfies (I don't think I'm very photogenic, and the selfie cams on my other phones always did these subtle, funky distortions) and the OIS is really nice.
The rear camera does not have OIS, which is the main reason why reviewers have been bagging on the camera, IMO. It's a great camera. Not iPhone 7/Galaxy S7 quality, but just a step below. If you're after cameras and a big screen, this is the phone for you.
I'm just thinking of returning mine because I don't like the way the back feels. It's a thin layer of polycarbonate that flexes quite a bit, and just feels a little bit off.
