Sony Xperia XA

Design and Display

This phone sports similar design as the other new Sony X series smartphones. It features an alluring curved display and shows off a metal rear panel. The 7.9mm-thick Sony Xperia XA packs in a 5-inch display with Mobile BRAVIA engine 2.

Although this screen has the same size as that of the Xperia X, the resolution is lower at 1,280 x 720 pixels. You should still expect decent viewing nevertheless.

Camera and Storage

The Sony Xperia XA offers a robust pair of snappers, although not on the same level as those on the regular Xperia X. You will find a fast-launching 13-megapixel Exmor RS camera on the rear. This shooter features the speedy Hybrid Autofocus for super-fast image capturing.

The phone offers an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper with a wide-angle, 88-degree lens for selfies. You will get 16GB of onboard storage for keeping your photos and other stuffs. Up to 200GB additional storage can put in the mix using a microSD card.

Performance and OS

On the inside, the Sony Xperia XA is equipped with an octa-core MediaTek MT6755 processor. But while this CPU boasts two extra cores over that of the Xperia X, you should not expect it to offer the level of performance that other chip will.

The RAM of 2GB capacity provided is respectable and should enable decent level of responsiveness. The phone boots Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system for exciting user experience.

Other Features

With a 2,300mAh battery provided, the Sony Xperia XA doesn’t look like a phone that will last long before needing another top-up. But the phone’s Japanese maker says you should expect up to two days in battery runtime. Lengthy lifespan for the battery is guaranteed with Qnovo Adaptive Charging.

The device offers 4G LTE (Cat. 4) connectivity for awesome mobile browsing speeds. It is impressively set up in the sound department with features like Clear Stereo, Clear Bass, X-Loud, and S-Force 3D.
