    Matte black is gorgeous..
    If I am not wrong, STB is 71%. Same of Z3+.

    Someone told me on a comment that battery is better than XA.
    I have watch videos, XA1 seems very fast. Speaker is too loud, avarage quality.
    Browsing on internet is fast too.

    I got the X F5122 which is 64GB and dual sim for 326$. Better?

  • BGDoesGaming

    much better!

  • theskig

    The phone’s better.

  • Month May is coming, still no nougat update for Xperia XA.

    Not a single word from Sony about the update for that phone.

    My father bought this phone few months ago, but he didn´t use it because he need dual sim phone, but now he is switching on one sim card.
    Wish Nougat is available, so I can already update it, because he don´t give to me his phone to this kind of things :P
    And I prefer everytime after big update such is MM to Nougat to do a factory reset.

    Guess we have to wait for XA1 to be available globaly first.

    Why Sony, you started really well will updating your phones to Nougat

  • lovebmw

    First time i see Sony gets the price right

  • Pedro Rocha

    ” Other features include a 23MP rear camera, 8MP rear camera…”
    Two rear cameras? :D

  • Little Man

    If you consider the 720p screen, the MediaTek processor and the top-bottom heavy bezels, it actually isn’t too worth it, albeit it is much more sensible relative to recent Sony Xperia phones’ pricings.

  • maleck johnson

    I’m saying the same for the xperia xa ultra

  • Khillo81

    No, two rears :D

  • XperiaBlog

    Thanks for the spot! :)

  • SM

  • SM

  • he bought this phone in august last year, but didn´t use it as i said because he needs two sim cards. Last night I started with updating system through xpera companion (repair) i like it fresh and clean. but my internet recently really sucks, so it took me whole night and day to install that new update and some applications. Apparently he changed his mind, so he is going to keep his alcatel idol 2 and give this XA to my sister.

    But I cant tell you, buttery is not that great, or it depends how u use this phone. I have a friend who has this Xperia XA, and he has to charge through the day to keep the phone alive. But sometimes he can have about 15% at the and of the day. On my Xperia z5 and his XA, 3g mobile data plus full brightness is killing the battery.

  • Moisés

    I heard XA1 has better battery life than XA

  • Moisés

    I use auto brightness when I am out there on the streets.
    At home I set low brightness, something like 15%.
    Battery is lasting longer for my z4

  • maleck johnson

    Just wish they will update xa dual, xa and xa ultra. Every other phone has updates expected these devices which promised early this year.

    If they don’t update device in may I will be force to purchase a new device due to the lack of update and security update as promised.

  • Makiz

    The battery life is very good on this phone, I’m using it for some weeks now and it is doing great. More than one day with normal use, a full day with heavy.

  • SM

    butin terms of the capacity, both xa n xa1 has the same mhz battery.

  • SM

  • maleck johnson
