Sony Xperia XA – A perfect fit


Sony Xperia XA -  A perfect fit

Sony launched its new phone and this phone is basically for those who use their smartphone at every hour. That’s why Sony designed it with a new look and feel to truly make your life comfortable and fully efficient. This phone comes under budget as well and its launched at Rs. 13,990/-.



This phone has IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen as most of the Xperia phones has along with 16M colours. It has screen size of 5.0 inches, 68.9 cm2 which approximately 71.8% screen-to-body ratio. The resolution of this phone is 720 x 1280 pixels which is 16:9 ratio with 294 ppi density. It has a Multitouch display with up to 4 fingers and a protection with scratch resistant glass display. The screen in this phone is somehow not Full HD but pretty much good for the daily use.


The camera in this phone is pretty amazing as it’s a day to day life phone and made for the use of every person out there. Camera is something everyone wants to be good so that what Sony did here they gave us 13MP with f/2.0, 1/3” aperture including phase detection autofocus and an LED flash light. The camera has more features like Geo-tagging, HDR and panorama etc. The camera of this phone is able to record videos in 1080p@30fps. There is secondary camera also which is of 8 MP with f/2.0 aperture with autofocus and can record upto 1080p videos.


This phone comes up with MicroSD card slot which is up to 256GB expandable and it’s a dedicated slot. This phone has 16 GB internal memory and a 2GB RAM. Basically, Sony is giving enough storage to keep your files and phone works fine in every format.




The processor of this phone is MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 and it comes up with Octa-core 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor. So, it’s a very heavy processor and can handle your every task you’re doing on your phone. It has a GPU named Mali-T860MP2.


The software version in Sony phone is outdated, they come up with Android 6 Which is Marshmallow but they also said that their phone will be upgradable their software up to Nougat.


Basically, this phone is capable of doing most of the daily work but when it comes to the battery life, it’s average I should say. There are many phones which comes under in this range and can perform well in terms battery life. Honor 7X comes under same price and have a very good battery life plus it has much larger screen. There is one more limitation which can easily fulfil in this range i.e. Fingerprint reader. Honor 7x also provide you dual camera to make your photography to another level which is perfect for you if you are a camera lover.


Here, I should say that most of the daily work can be done on this phone and if you are Sony lover plus you need hard body and sleek design than you must go with this phone, but if you need better camera and better battery life then you should not buy this.
