Design and display

High definition screen

The Sony Xperia XA1 is fronted by a 5-inch HD display, stretching right up to the rounded edges of the handset.

 

It’s bright and clear showing off every detail of your photos and videos, and makes for the perfect handheld movie theatre when using the likes of Netflix or Amazon Prime. 

Premium design

The XA1’s compact design makes it simple to hold and use in just one hand, and it’ll fit nicely in your pocket. 

Camera

Seriously impressive sensor

A 23MP camera is on board to make sure can always get the best photos and videos. And with a large f/2.0 aperture, letting in loads of light, getting great shots at night is a breeze too. 

Perfect selfies

The 23mm wide-angle front-facing lens lets you get the whole gang in the frame. And at 8MP, all your photos will look pin sharp. 

Under the hood

Smooth user experience

The XA1 has an octa-core processor on the inside, which will make sure you won’t be slowed down while using big mobile games or streaming films online. It’s backed up by 3GB RAM, and there’s 32GB of internal storage as standard. 

Smart battery

A 2,300mAh battery will keep you powered up all day long, but if you do find yourself nearing the red, you can turn on Sony’s STAMINA Mode. It limits some of the more power-hungry parts of the XA1, to keep you going for longer.

Sony Xperia XA1 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 177.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible phone Really wishing I hadn't bought this. Terrible problems connecting to WiFi and blue tooth. Been sent back to Sony and 'repaired' but still not working. I will never buy a Sony phone again after this

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pity I got the Xa1 only 6 weeks ago. Had issues with the touch screen from day 1. Seems to be a common problem.Today Sony asked me to return it for repair as they tell me it's got a hardwear fault. Pity.. It is a nice phone and the camera is good. The battery lasts but on full brightness drains super fast. Will i be getting the XA1 again? No!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone for the money Had this for 2 months now to replace an iphone 6. Love the angular flat styling and near borderless display. Yes it's a 720p display but frankly that's fine on a small phone and the image is sharp and clear. Less pixels to drive prolongs battery life. Sound is good and the speed is fine for everyday use, as is 3gb of ram. Very decent camera and excellent camera software with manual modes. For the £170 paid this is a stonking bargain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I bought this phone after having the iPhone as I fancied a change, I picked Sony as its a well-known make, I've recently took my girls to disneyland took lots of photos only to return and none of my pictures were saved, this makes my children sad as they have nothing to look back on nothing to show their friends so this makes me sad and angry..... Sony need to recall this product and get it sorted once and for all and compensate all their XA1 customers, shocking for Sony product
