The Xperia XA1 support 4G+3G Dual SIM, and you can also use two SIMs and a micro SD at the same time too~

Sony's "super mid-range" Xperia XA1 is coming to Singapore on 6th May

The Sony Xperia XA1 is finally coming to Singapore on 6th May!


Building on last year's Xperia XA smartphones, Sony has just announced the launch of its new "super mid-range" Xperia XA1 smartphone, which will be available in Singapore on 6th May 2017. First unveiled at MWC in February, the XA1 has a 5-inch 720p display, and is powered by a Mediatek Helio P20 processor. Its best feature seems to be its 23-megapixel, f/2.0 rear camera with its 1/2.3-inch Sony ExmorTMRS mobile sensor. On the front, there's an 8-megapixel 23mm wide-angle camera.

The XA1 also includes a new software feature called “Xperia Actions”, which Sony claims will learn user habits and automatically change settings and manage apps according. For example, when you go to bed your Xperia can learn your bedtime routine and automatically adjust the screen brightness and call volume.

The Xperia XA1 will be available in Gold, Black and White at a suggested retail price of S$398 from Sony Store, Sony Centre, M1, Singtel, StarHub and authorized retail partners by 6 May 2017.

Fingerprint sensor is reserved for the flagship.
Sony is not in the game. Other manufactures have already released FPS even in their budget models.

Seems like a reuse model with new specs that all.
No fingerprint sensor, MTK processor and exp price point. #byesony
Yes, the greatest disadvantage of Sony is their price..

Sony did mention that they aren't pursuing for high market share, and they're positioning themselves as a premium brand with good quality products.

Of course cannot compete with Xiaomi.

Both the XA and XA Ultra were quite respectable for the design and camera, especially for the street prices. The main letdown is the battery and low useable storage...

Now considering upgrading to the XA1 from the XA.

I'm considering to get the XA1 too, but the battery life seems rather bad..

I like the design of the XA1 and the camera seems promising, only thing is its battery life results is pulling me back..

For XA1, you might as well look at the X from last year with better screen resolution and extra 300 mAh battery.

For the design ques, X have rounder edges compared to XA1.

Then the battery life would be worse with 2 SIM cards.

I think both X and XA1 are not decent dual-SIM phones to sufficiently last a day of normal usage, have to be frugal and not play much games.

X yeah. I can vouch for the bad battery life. XZ can last the whole day tho.


infact, battery lasts better in places with good signals
