  • 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
    Negatives
    • 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

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

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.

Does the Ki score change?

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.
