The company has added a new device called Sony Xperia XA 2017 to its product portfolio in 2017. The Sony Xperia XA 2017 price in India starts from Rs 13,450. This is a mid-range handset and competes with the likes of Moto and Redmi at this price point.

    Processor:

    The Sony Xperia XA 2017 uses the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow along with the company`s UI on top of it. The handset is powered by a 64-bit Octa-core processor and is clubbed with 2GB RAM. The usage of MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 chipset ensures ease of handling of different types of workloads. At this price the competition is way ahead of the curve as it offers better specifications and processing capabilities.

    Camera:

    In the photography domain, the Sony Xperia XA 2017 comes with a 13MP main camera with a f/2.0 aperture and a 1/3" sensor.  This camera features Hybrid Autofocus that ensures snap clear images. It features an 8MP selfie camera with a f/2.0 lens and 1/4" sensor for selfie lovers. The camera sensors that have been provided in the device with the LED flash enhances low light capabilities.

    Design and Display:

    This is a slim device that has a complete metal body with a rounded frame. The device sports a 5-inch IPS LCD scratch-resistant display with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. It weighs only 137.4 grams and thickness is 7.9mm. So, it is compact in hand.  The right edge of the phone has volume keys, a power button, and a snapper key while there is a slot for card tray on the left side. The bottom encompasses a mono speaker grille, a micro USB Cable slot and, a 3.5 mm jack is provided on the top of the device.

    Storage:

    The device has 16GB of internal storage to store media and apps. The storage is further expandable up to 200GB using a microSD card.

    Battery:

    The phone sports a 2,300 mAh non-removable battery and enables the quick charge feature. According to the company, 5.5 hours of battery life is possible within 10 minutes of charging.

    Verdict:

    The Xperia XA appears to be a compromised product. It is compact and pocketable, but issues with performance means there are much better options in the market. However, besides its attractive looks, this handset is not good at anything in particular, and it some what lacks the latest features, evaluating what Moto G4 and G4 Plus offer at similar price points or less.If you want an attractive looking device that does the basic functions, this meets your requirements.
