Review Sony Xperia XA - first look

In my opinion, the most beautiful smartphone of Sony presented at MWC 2016 – the Sony Xperia XA looks cool, but does not apply to the flagship. Okay device for a wide audience.

Design, construction

I had the opportunity to choose, write about any smartphone first. It seems to be the most productive – is X Performance, but his hand reached for the Sony Xperia XA – because he is perhaps the most beautiful of all the presented smartphones.

It will disappear as soon as the device will take in hand. Current trends are pushing manufacturers to follow each other in a literal sense – a breakthrough in design at Sony did not commit rather successfully used their own and others’ achievements. That’s what makes it a unique XA, well, X and X are too similar to the Performance series Z – apparently decided to forget about it.

Meanwhile, the machine with a pleasant appearance is not a flagship, it is representative of the average price segment, according to our classification, “The Gambler” – can there be anything more, time will tell, and of course, price.
