- Useless GPS. Bloated with apps. Uses NAND memory. ROOT to get best xperience.
SONY ARE NEVER UPDATING THIS PHONE TO OREO. BUY A DIFFERENT PHONE
Stuffed with bloatware. Over 1GB of bloatware. It is also a NAND based device so needs root + a specific system app uninstaller from the play store to get rid of the bloat.
The GPS is useless unless out in the open. Forget about it working in a vehicle. Passivated car windows contain metal particles and the XA hasn't a hope of getting satellite lock. I got a bluetooth gps for the car in the end.
Aside from that the WIFI IS OK EXCEPT WHEN BLUETOOTH IS ON. Wifi speed drops from ~50 mb/s to ~3 mb/s with bluetooth on. Awful. Truly awful. Many other models and manufacturers have this same issue.
The phone is more responsive once rooted and the bloatware is removed. The camera is so-so. I am mainly interested in app responsiveness so happy with that.
Avoid this phone if you need GPS and need good screen visibility in sunlight.
Otherwise no one is going to steal this phone for its features.Positives
- responsive once bloatware removed
- sharp screen
- heavy enough to not slip out of hand
- Where is OREO? Oh it's never going to happen? Bye
- BAD. BAD. BAD GPS. Get an external GPS
- poor screen visibility in sunlight
- AWFUL WIFI speed with bluetooth on
- loaded with 1GB+ bloatware
- uses NAND storage
- NO OREO updates
- I want a new phone
The price for this phone drops like hell.
Battery is terrible, a bit better while using stamina but you can't see the screen under the sun lol.
few games aren't compatible, lots of old gameloft games are not compatible too, Some are, but hard to find and full of virus. Oh and btw, you can't play FF XV pocket edition here, it is not supported.
The available storage is apprx 10.4gb, nearly half of which is used for the system only, so expect to use it with 1-2 gb left after installing essential apps for your daily dose of entertainments.Positives
- Nice design, though I think the black "ring" around the screen doesn't match with the overall color
- It support dual sim cards
- The back of the phone is easily scratched
- AutoAfter 3 years weak, but still pleasant
Launched by Sony as a base mediogamma in 2016 at a price far from favorable (about 300 euros), this Xperia XA has a nice almost bordless design and a remarkable ease of use, accentuated by the rounded edges (XA1 instead will opt otherwise). It is surprising that Sony reserved it for the mid-range when the X, XP and XZ models, always very framed, could have benefited more. The processor is a Helio Mediatek and it disappoints: not lightning and sometimes it has locks. With an update they have corrected the heating and battery drains. Autonomy does not arrive in the evening, however, if used regularly it must be charged first. However, Sony has an excellent streamlined, pleasant and complete interface, which certainly decorates the pill. Excellent reception and wi-fi signal. After a few years now fatigue and the display loses a few touches, but it can be attributed to the values of the new devices rather than lack of the XA ..Positives
- Attractive design
- telephone part
- Ui Sony
- disappointing battery
- Helio always hurts to read it
- exaggerated launch price
- AutoGood mobile
It is a good mobile, it is of good quality, it has a very good camera and it is quite resistant to shocks and falls, its design is not everyone's taste, its autonomy is not very good but it is a comfortable mobile it is a fluid mobile but for that price expected many other things for example 3gb of RAM or 32gb of internal storage or a fingerprint sensorPositives
- Shock and fall resistance
- Additional features
- Internal storage

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:
- Design and screen
- Hardware and performance
Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.
Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.
The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
