Hi there. This deal is now back in stock. It was available before xmas (http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sony-xperia-xa-lime-gold-black-perfect-like-new-for-79-99-o2-2582025) and for a short time due to a glitch the price dropped in error to £49.99. Both colours are currently available and people previously posted the Graphite Black version came unlocked. It seems the Lime Gold maybe locked to O2.

If the phone arrives locked you have 14 days to return it to O2.

Can't see any codes available to knock the price down any further. Also no other offers seem to be available with the handset currently with O2.

As it is a like new phone it doesn't come in the original box. Instead all you will receive is the handset and data cable. Judging by what you should get in the box if you purchased it new you seem to be missing the headphones and plug. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUhW3TKPeVU)

Now back in stock as at 14:21 as at 10/1/17

No problem- for £80 i think this is a decent deal.

I ordered a sony Z4 tablet from O2 like this. best purchase I have made this year.
no sign of any use, in perfect condition and a couple of hundred quid cheaper than buying the same on eBay!

Any idea on the unlock code please?
#5
I just bought the lime gold one. I hope I can get it unlocked somehow.. I found unlock code for £5 on ebay...

O2 will unlock it for £15 after 12 months on PAYG. However I read if you have an existing contract with O2 they will waive the fee and perhaps the time limit.

Phone looks lovely but has a terrible battery and gold color started coming off quickly :(
Not impressed as £ 80 is a lot of money.

Don't think you can expect the build quality of a premium phone for this cost.

Even at £150ish it was quite a good looking phone and well built. Not compared to all the Chinese phones but it certainly wasn't bad. At £80 it is a steal, that edge-to-edge display and compact frame make it feel really nice. Display is a bit washed out but only if you have another phone next to it to compare to.

Any way to buy it without the mandatory £10 topup?
#15
Got this before Christmas and happy. Haven't had any issues with the battery life and I'm a moderate user. With power banks so cheap now, I don't see why somebody couldn't buy one if they found this battery to be horrendous - which I really don't think it is. The edge of the screen is rounded, which feels premium. (I think it may be on a high end Samsung). Overall a bargain at £80.
I would recommend getting a micro SD card though as the storage isn't huge.

I had this phone for a couple of months, probably one of the most stylish and nicest to hold phones about, but had a slow processor and bad battery drain.

I recently picked up the p9 lite which the Xa is priced at around the same price usually (£129-£199), and the p9 lite is miles ahead as a usable phone

Good for the price though, and has the usual very good sony FM radio, which is a plus for me

I have ordered one of these earlier this afternoon which hopefully will arrive tomorrow. A very nice lady on the web chat told me that it will be locked so we shall see. I have a talktalk sim card at present so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that its unlocked. If its not, my husband has a PAYG with o2 so they will unlock it for free and because he has been with them for more than 12 months they will do it immediately. Someone has mentioned they've found someone on ebay who will do it for £5 but details are sketchy.
#21
ordered these B4 Xmas, came next day. Kids live them. the gold is locked to O2 but it will apparently cost £15.99 to unlock after having the handset for 12 mths or if u have a contract with them they will do it for free, my neighbour did my daughters gold one today. for the price they are a steal. as for battery life tbh it's not all that bad. Kids had 2 hours of pokemon go on them which really drains ur battery.

Sony phones will go the same way as that E.T. video game. Will be in a landfill soon enough. The company has lost it's way. Need to dump my Z3 for something well designed.

Just below the £79.99 on the right hand side, you will see 'view all tariffs' Click on that. I clicked on the first bundle which is for £10. You can than add phone to basket. Along with the phone you will have a sim delivered. There will be absolutely no credit on it simply because you haven't paid for any. The total cost is £79.99 for the phone and the sim. Assuming you've ordered the black one and assuming its un-locked (fingers crossed I'm in the same boat) you add the sim you are using in your present mobile phone. If of course, you are a new user and want to use the o2 network, then simply add £10 credit to the sim card and you will get the 200 minutes, 5000 texts or whatever sim card you chose when ordering. Hope this helps

For those on the fence, I bought this phone around 14 days ago and it has been excellent for the money. Battery lasts me a full day, its nice and compact with no lag that I have noticed in performance. NFC is great, and I find it registers on terminals much quicker than other phones I have had.

Software experience is good, mainly stock with a few tweaks but not a hinderance really.

Camera is average, decent enough in good light, poor in low light. Speaker volume is low, so video calls arent great.

On the whole, cant be beaten for me for £80.

Is the bootloader unlock allowed = Yes?

Thanks.

Has anyone with the Black version confirmed it comes unlocked from 02 ? very tempted by this but am on EE currently.

Hi,
Well my phone has just been delivered and looks like a smart bit of kit. However, the phone that I am swapping from is using a different sim card so I am unable to find out if it is indeed unlocked. Anyhow, I've ordered a nano sim from my provider, so hopefully it will be here quickly. So, I too would like to hear from anyone who has received theirs today and has the correct sim card and can report they are either locked to o2 or unlocked. Hopefully it will be the latter.

Thank you very much. Looks like we are in business, although with my luck, I could prove to be the exception but we will see.

Bootloader is probably locked, but it's not network locked.
