It comes in at a lower price that its sister phone, the Sony Xperia X, but the Xperia XA still has great specs. Here are six reasons you should consider this sleek handset for your next upgrade. 

1.  It looks good

First impression is that the Xperia XA’s classic design will look good for years. Its smooth back, aluminium edges and superb build quality make it an exceptionally good looking phone. It’s comfortable to hold, too.

2.  The screen

The 5-inch 720p display doesn’t have the resolution of some of Sony’s more expensive rivals, but the Triluminos colour system makes everything look crisp and bright.

3.  Picture-perfect moments

Sony’s sensors are known to power the very best Android cameras around, and, as you’d expect, the camera in the Xperia XA is very good. It has a 13-megapixel camera with hybrid autofocus and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

4.  All that power

The Xperia XA runs on an advanced 64-bit Octa-core MediaTek MT6755 processor - aka Helio P10 - so your smartphone is super-fast and super-smooth, and uses less power.

5.  Expandable Memory

Need extra space for all your photos, videos and music? For some, the 16 GB on-board memory is not enough.  Which is why the Xperia XA lets you add up to 200 GB extra memory with a microSD card.

6.  Two-day battery power

With a 2300 mAh battery pack, the Xperia XA is said to bring you up to two days of battery power from a single charge. This allows you to listen to more music, talk for days, tweet more and stay out longer without worry.
