Design and display

Fits perfectly in your hand

With a smooth, curved body that easily slips into your pocket, the Xperia XA feels natural and comfortable to use.

Edge to edge display

The 5” glass screen stretches from edge to edge, making the frame hardly visible. No matter what you watch, the visuals are maximised to make everything look great. 


Every second counts

Thanks to the fast-launch camera button you’ll always catch the perfect last minute shot. With super-fast autofocus you’ll capture all the action without sacrificing quality. Simply touch anywhere on the screen, and the Xperia XA will focus in on the subject.

Great selfies, even at night

Take quality selfies at a party or photograph a cityscape at night with highly responsive front and rear cameras. Switch between the 13 front-facing and 8MP user-facing cameras for clear, sharp shots even in low light.

Under the hood

Up to two days of power

Listen to more music, talk for days, and stay out without worrying about re-charging. On a single charge the Xperia XA can run for days, but if you’re in a rush, quick-charging lets you power up faster than ever.

Processing speed

Thanks to an octa-core processor the Xperia XA runs super-fast and super-smooth. It comes with the Android operating system for easy navigation and access to over 1 million apps - whatever you love to do you’ll find it on the Xperia XA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dollymix from Recommend this phone :) I love my new phone, I have had it now for a month and I love it. It is nice and slim, takes good photos, great video quality and good sound quality. The media volume could go louder however for £140 I can not complain. Good battery life. A shame that there are no headphones with this device however the free speaker made up for it. Over all good affordable phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Melanie from Great features After reading the reviews I wasn't sure whether to buy this phone but thought I would try it for myself and I'm so pleased I did, it's the first time I've had a Sony but I love it the only downside is the battery but I've got a mobile battery charger so it's not a problem, I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tactictaylor from Very stylish I've had this device for a month, think Sony should have applied this design flair to their flagship phones too.. Beyond looks, first thing I like is the default screen temperature, it is a nice white white, not too warm like some. The edge to edge display is welcome too.. Put it next to an s7 edge, it looks in the same league for a fraction of the price. It's quite a fast device even if only a mediatek processor. Lacks default storage option to SD, shame as marshmallow 6, supports this. Speaker is poor, but headphone output excellent. Cameras brilliant! Object tracking feature top rate. Battery is a disaster, but you can't have everything. Overall, I love this device.
