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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful screen I have had this phone for three months now and I am seriously not impressed. It takes forever to pull down the drop down menu and also am not able to press the letter P unless you press right at the edge of the screen. My other half also has the same problems with his Xa1and he also has a yellow smudge appearing over his clock.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful screen, in for repair for 2nd time! I originally bought this phone a few months ago and it was great. The colour is what I was looking for, the camera was good, all was going well until I started having trouble with the screen. initially it started off as having the occasional issue with touch screen not working, then it got to the point where I couldn't even pull down the top menu, or use some letters around the edge. It was sent for repair but they ended up replacing as they apparently couldn't repair the fault. The replacement phone I got seemed sluggish, it wasn't as fast as the previous one even though it was the same model. Things didn't seem to work as well but I got on with it even though the battery life was significantly less than the previous one. After having it back for a month I started having difficulty again with the screen, using sketch showed a thin arch of the screen where the touch wasn't working. After A week or so I got fed up and took it into store and despite it yet again not being fit for purpose and STILL being missold as having a fingerprint scanner when it does not, I still couldn't get a refund. So now It is in for repair yet again. What's worse is that when the geek squad helper used sketch to see where the screen was not working the archway that wasn't working had more than doubled in size! Touch screen issues seem to be common with this phone from looking online, yet it seems that sony doesn't want to do anything about it. I'm really disappointed with carphone warehouse and will be making a complaint to trading standards as this is not acceptable. I did not get what I paid for and one of the things I was looking for was a fingerprint scanner.
