Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

This phone is the perfect example of style over substance. One of the more disappointing things I purchased. I still cant believe I fell for its looks even when the battery dies twice everyday. I didnt even bother playing games anymore because i have to be mindful of the battery. Not fun at all.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

Just telling. I know you got to make a quick decision (7 days you said) my friend. But as I have both XA and XL I can say from my experience that difference between endurances is very less and in now way (in comparison to L) as pathetic as you have expressed. (I am not saying that you are lying, read on)

Some people (they did not seem to be fools) at XDA told me (or discussed) that the battery will perform bad when brand new. And after some charge-discharge cycles it will reach its max potential.(that may be your case).

Though people like me and roadrunny are still unhappy with its 'max potential' ,it should be noted that we are heavy users and your case should be a bit better.

Also have you fully updated your XA.
And listen not all is bad, XA charges much faster than your Xperia L.

It all up to you, I am nobody to tell you.

Though I have myself felt Sony losing in this sector. Sony ruled when there was just apple as the competitor. Now it is easily felt how Sony is using cheap materials and and flat simple designs to cut down on costs in hopes to compete.

'Attention to details' is simply gone ( compare design and detailing in Z2 vs XZ )

Good luck.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

Battery & Internal storage  is most important features of a mobile, like body & soul of a human. It is very dishertening that both of them are poor as far as Xperia XA is concerned.  Battery: Sony claimed 2 days battery life (masked under so many hidden circumstances). No body belived for 2 days but I strongly belived (being a Sony fan) that this 2300 mAh will last a full day under moderate use ( reason for the belief - Its Sony). But like every body I disappointed, mainly for the unreliability of Sony. Sony can't be compaired with chinesee phone but like to mention that Redmi 3S prime honestly& clearly  claimed only' 2 days battery life under moderate use', though the battery is 4100mAh.  Internal storage : purchased this after knowing that the internal memory is 16 GB. But I never dreamt that Sony will infiltrate several apps in to the storage at the cost of mine, which I can't delet.Why Sony, its my phone..I pay for this then why I should suffer for your greed. The most disheartning  part is Every XA buyer will think twice before buying any Sony product in future. Sony has lost The reliability..the goodwill..the affection in large extent for this XA. I know many will not agree with me but Sony has relaised it, so they very quickly slashed the price (In India from INR 21,000/- to 17,000/- within 3 months) Again for this action of Sony, we (who loves/loved Sony) early buyer suffered most.

@Bapi67 Sad how theres so much truth your comments has...Do you think Sony realized the defects thats why they dropped the price quick? In my country they also dropped the price of the XA.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

You can very well see what is happening with xperia X, especially in the U.S . It got price cuts minimum 5 times and now can be purchased at some 385$. In In India too its price dropped from 48,000 to 37,000. In that sence anyone who buys a Sony little early is a fool.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

We, Sony fans, should learn this: buy (and that is if we will buy Sony smartphones again) after minimum 4 - 6 months after launch, because just then the price will be near real value of what Sony can offer nowadays. A couple of weeks ago I was tempted to order the XZ (and give the XA to one of my kids), but, having the experience of XA, I decided not to. Excellent choice (I would say) taking into consideration the problems users have with XZ.
