Sony Xperia XA1 review: Bezel free and mid-range | Trusted Reviews

 

Sony Xperia XA1 review: A near bezel free mid-range device that improves slightly on last year's model and hopes to take on the Moto G5, Honor 6X and more

Camera can take excellent pictures ; Compact build ; All-day battery life

Camera software is slow and fiddly ; Sometimes very poor performance ; No fingerprint scanner

Sony Xperia XA1 review: a whole lotta pixels for not a lotta money

 

You'll struggle to find a better camera for this low, low price

Impressive camera ; Sleek, compact design

Relatively low-res screen ; OTT image processing

Sony Xperia XA1 review

 

A cracking camera squeezed into a merely OK mid-range phone

Slim, with a narrow waist and smart looks ; Unusually powerful camera

720p screen ; No fingerprint scanner ; Some occasional performance issues

Smart-looking and affordable mid-range phone with more megapixels than the rest

Sony Xperia XA1 review

 

A low price and ultra-high megapixel count

Very impressive camera for the price ; Smart, ultra-pocketable design ; Bright screen

Relatively low screen resolution ; No fingerprint scanner ; Typical Sony overbaked camera processing

If you want a slim, diminutive phone that won’t make your wallet weep, but has a good camera, the Sony Xperia XA1 is one of your best options. You can get sharper screens at the price, but the photo hardware is hard to beat.

Sony Xperia XA1 review

 

The Sony Xperia XA1 offers 23Mp stills, facial recognition and a bunch of nice photographic features for £229. Here's our review

The Sony Xperia XA1 is a nice phone for the money. We rate its clean, simple look and the way it feels in the hand, while the array of Smart Lock features and the raw specs and performance of that blockbuster rear-facing camera are impressive. Given...

Sony Xperia XA1 Review: In Depth

 

Sony's affordable Xperia XA1 smartphone packs some serious style into a pleasingly compact frame.

Gorgeous, compact design ; Impressive camera ; Long battery life

Not the fastest ; No fingerprint sensor

Sony’s Xperia XA1 is a significant improvement over last year’s Xperia XA and a strong rival to the likes of the Moto G5 and Lenovo P2. That gorgeous design has been further refined for an attractive and easy-to-handle device, while the upgraded...

Sony Xperia XA1 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony Xperia XA1 is one of the Japanese company's new affordable mobile phones for 2017. It has the sharp design frequently found on Sony smartphones, but does its 23Mp rear camera take shots that you'd be happy to share? We test all mobile phones...

It's bye bye bezels for a full-screen experience

 

The screens on Sony's new midrange Android phones stretch right to the edge. There are sacrifices to be made, though.

Sony Xperia XA1 Review

 

On paper, the Xperia XA1 that we are taking for a spin is a fine upgrade over its XA predecessor, with a better camera, faster chipset, USB-C and more memory.

Sturdy design ; Simple, yet distinct and fast-moving interface ; Excellent media apps with real-time TV guide option

Steep competition at this pricing level ; Smudgy video quality ; Ho-hum call quality in the earpiece
