John Lewis

Probably worth the extra tenner for it to be unlocked and with a 2 year no quibble warranty.
Can't justify a 6th phone!
no topup needed,guys, so it is £'s149.99
Offer since BF there...
This or huawei p8 lite??

This or huawei p8 lite??


The P8 Lite 2017 blows this out of the water.

The P8 Lite 2017 is faster, has a better screen, has a much bigger battery, looks better, has a better camera...

The P8 Lite 2017 also has a fingerprint scanner (and an excellent one too), whereas the Sony has none

Trying not to be biased here as I bought this phone for my son before Xmas. The most important thing on an Android phone in my opinion is the amount of internal storage. You need a minimum of 32gb which this has. Expandable storage isn't the same, not as reliable in my experience (even as adoptable storage). The other most important factor is software updates. This just had an update for a December patch. My (Hauwei) Honor 8 hasn't had an update for months. Also Sony have said this will get updated to Oreo. Hauwei, Honor haven't said what will get updated yet. Fingerprint scanner is useful but not a must. Camera is decent spec says it is 23 megapixel. Sony software manages battery well. Looks are a matter of opinion and yes the screen isn't as well as good as others but unless you look really closely you won't be able to tell. Go into the o2 shop and see what you think.
Is there a deal on the xa1 ultra. The z ultra was too big but the xa1 might be more pocketable. Is the mediatech in it decent

Sony software has a quite well-known and consistent history of poor management of battery unless you reduce the functionality quite noticeably, I doubt this is any different.

Don't remember reading any criticism of the battery on this model. There was an issue with the touch screens on earlier models though. I believe that had been fixed. You will not find many Android phones that have exceptional battery management, still need to charge it after a days use.
£220 now.
You can request the unlock for free. Just contact them after rhe purchase. I have done it few times now via their chat option - they send you the code via email
Why does @O2 sell the buggy Sony @sonyxperiagb XPERIA XA1 This fone crashes all day, needs constant rebooting & software 'fixes' WORST PHONE I HAVE EVER OWNED! AVOID SONY & O2 HOPELESS CUSTOMER SUPPORT. FAIL!I

I have returned this phone twice. It came with Android 7.0, I installed the 7.1 and the phone was crash and rebooting. I used their recommended Xperia Companion which DOWN-graded the phone to 7.0 and it was ok for a few days. Now it has started crashing again.

I bought this as a spare while my EXCELLENT Nexus 6p was being fixed. It's time for a refund, I think!
I thought I should share my story, but do not buy this handset. Faulty at any price.

I paid 250 for mine too.
The problem is that this phone has dreadfully buggy sony software that has not been tested. I don't appreciate it when manufacturers sell products that are CLEARLY faulty & expect their paying customers to beta-test their software. If you google this phone there are heaps of pages hits 'Why does my Xperia XA1 ultra keep freezing'? This product is not of merchantable quality or fit for purpose. This handset has wasted 2weeks of my time with no resolution. I will continue to warn anyone who'll listen, to avoid buying a Sony Xperia.
