Design và Connectivity

The XA1 Plus looks like a typical Xperia phone from 2017. According to this means a chunkier feel than you get from many manufacturers. They say gently curved sides make the phone much more comfortable to lớn hold while it is still satisfyingly robust. The top and bottom bezels are large. describes that the phone does neither have a home key and nor capacitive keys, but software buttons, which take up a little of the 5.5-inch screen real-estate. The phone has a plastic top and aluminum sides. It measures at 155 x 75 x 8.7 mm and weighs 189 g. thinks that the kích thước is reasonable for a 5.5-inch phone, but hotline the weight hefty. They compare it to the 5.5-inch mi Mi cảnh báo 4, which weighs just 165 g despite having a bigger battery. finds, “In your hands, the Xperia XA1 Plus feels boxy & there"s certain heft to it - both of these can be good or bad, depending on where you stand.”. thinks that it is a struggle to lớn use the phone with one hand và you will definitely need to lớn use both hands khổng lồ operate this phone when on the move. Furthermore, the phone lacks water resistance.

Thanks to lớn the thicker profile a proper 3.5 mm headphone found place on the top. The phone features a reversible USB-C port (USB 2.0 limits transfer speeds lớn 480 Mbps according to lớn, a microSD-slot, và – depending on the variant – a dual-SIM tray or single-SIM tray. likes that opening the tray does not require a tool.

The nguồn button on the right side houses a fingerprint reader (except for US models).

The phone was launched with game android 7.0 Nougat, which is not the latest version. According to lớn the user interface is very much Sony-flavored, with Sony-made pre-installed apps including News Suite, What"s New, PlayStation, Xperia Lounge, AR Effect (Sony"s version of Snapchat filters, although it dates back ages), Sketch, và some third-party content including Rakuten"s Kobo ereader và AVG antivirus. They say most of these apps can only be disabled, not uninstalled, và some can"t even do that. According to lớn FM Radio is available, but there is no Track ID anymore.


The phone features a 23 MP rear camera, which sits almost flush, with just a thin silver ring raised above the surface, and a 8 MP front camera. The rear camera features a 1/2.3" sensor, f/2.0 aperture, autofocus, a single LED flash, 1080p/30fps đoạn phim recording, and SteadyShot EIS. The front camera has a 1/4" sensor and f/2.0 aperture. It can also record videos at 1080p/30fps. While thinks the 23MP primary camera is a good fit for the midrange Xperia XA1 Plus & delivers plenty of detail, pleasing colors và wide dynamic range, complains about an unreliable, slow camera. A disadvantages is that only 1080p/30fps video recording is supported. As for video unique thinks video clip samples are soft, detail levels are unimpressive & the limited dynamic range in videos will leave you with pretty dark shadows, too. They report, “The 8MP front-facing shooter focuses slightly closer than arm"s length, but that aside, it captures nicely detailed selfies with decent dynamic range & true khổng lồ life skin tones.” is impressed given the asking price of this phone, although some rivals such as the xe máy G5 Plus offer better results at night.


The 5.5-inch display is protected by Gorilla Glass 4. It features Full HD resolution và a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio. This gives an px density of about 401 PPI. would have preferred the display was a little less fingerprinty. They would wish for a higher brightness & complain that adaptive brightness, which is on by default, leaves a screen a little dim for their liking. Moreover, they observed that the maximum possible brightness cannot be reached with adaptive brightness on. reports a maximum brightness of 591 cd/m², a black value of 0.376 cd/m², a contrast ratio of 1,572, average sunlight legibility and unimpressive màu sắc reproduction (average DeltaE 5.7, DeltaE of 10 for whites). misses a night mode, to lớn filter xanh light & produce warmer visuals for more comfortable viewing in the dark.

Battery Life

The Xperia XA1 Plus features a 3,430 mAh battery. The phone capably carried through a full day of standard use (social media, gaming, a few calls và some reading) and often into the next. In their standard 90-minute HD đoạn phim test - screen brightness set khổng lồ full, accounts syncing in the background – the phone lost 16 % of its full charge, which they gọi a good result in comparison khổng lồ similarly-priced phones. reports 12.5 hours of video playback. summarizes the battery performs well for the phone’s price point in the market, but there are better choices if battery stamina is your vị trí cao nhất concern.


There is only a single downward-firing speaker. finds, “The speaker is okay: it goes reasonably loud but predictably gets distorted at higher levels. It sounds fine, if a little noisy, và of course very dependent on which way the speaker’s facing relative to lớn you. It"s not one for parties, put it that way.” tested the single SIM version, which stays distortion không lấy phí even at maximum amplification. They report that the audio output is excellently clean when used with an active external amplifier, but only average in loudness.


Pros of the phone are its large 1080p screen, big battery, and (depending on the country) the fingerprint scanner. However, Sony has added lots of software, và the phone is not water resistant, lacks wireless charging support and does not run the latest game android version.

While the Sony Xperia XZ1 is the king of the hill on Sony’s lineup, not everyone can or is willing to lớn shell out for a flagship. Hence, Sony offers the Sony Xperia XA1 Plus further down its stack. If the XZ1 can be compared to lớn a Rolls Royce, the XA1 Plus is akin lớn a Mercedes. This is not far off, since both are still considered premium devices albeit the latter has a way more affordable price without skimping on features. So, what is the Sony Xperia XA1 Plus rocking under its hood? It is powered by Mediatek’s P20 MT6757 SoC, 3 GB of RAM, & 32 GB of storage. Because Sony focuses on a very angular design, the XA1 remains as a daring contrast lớn the likes of Apple’s iPhone or even Samsung’s Galaxy series. This is welcome, since the market is increasingly made up of wannabe copycats, which frankly always falls flat on its face. Compared to lớn Sony’s own lineup the Xperia XA1 Plus is taller than most of its designs but is also equally. Hence, it feels like a chocolate bar. Despite that, the Xperia XA1 Plus is quite pleasant khổng lồ hold. In terms of chassis thiết kế the Xperia XA1 Plus is primarily made of a set of plastics & aluminium, which comes with the mid-range tier. However, it feels premium without feeling tacky or cheap. One thing the Xperia XA1 Plus has và the XZ does not is tư vấn for Dual SIM configurations although that is subject to region. On the IO side of things, the Xperia XA1 Plus is also equipped with a USB Type C port but compared khổng lồ the XZ its only USB 2.0 which is downright disappointing. One thing to love about Sony’s phones is that they are generally almost bloatware free. Software-wise it is preloaded with an almost stock app android Nougat 7.0, with a high probability of being able lớn update to app android Oreo 8.0.

In the camera department Sony has installed a 23 MP rear & 8 MP front camera. The 23 MP camera features a wide-angle lens. Quality-wise the camera delivers as expected. However, there seem to be minor issues such as heavy màu sắc noise in low light setups. Although 4K is supported by the onboard SoC, the Xperia XA1 Plus is only able to tư vấn up khổng lồ 1080p. This is most likely a restriction Sony has implemented khổng lồ keep 4K reserved for higher tiered devices. Nonetheless, this is still acceptable. Since it is marketed as a mid-tier phone, Sony has to lớn make some compromises. While the XZ has been praised for not having the cupping effect because of its front facing speakers, the Xperia XA1 Plus seems lớn backtrack on this with a little speaker on the bottom of the device, which is somewhat average since low tones are hardly audible as opposed lớn mids being relatively balance. Despite that Sony has installed ClearAudio+ for audio improvements. Lastly battery life should be mentioned. The Xperia XA1 Plus is equipped with a reasonably large battery at 3.430 mAh. Hence, users can be assured of a full day’s worth and then some of usage. It seems when compared to lớn its other sibling, the Xperia XA1 Sony might have designed an all rounded mid-tier device without cutting too much corners. The Xperia XA1 Plus is a solid device albeit one which is also well priced for what it is delivering.
