Xperia XA unboxing and hands-on review

Sony Xperia XA UK unboxing and hands-on review: We unbox, set up and play with the Xperia XA, Sony's latest affordable Android phone and the cheapest handset from the new Xperia X smartphone range.

We've already reviewed Sony's 2016 flagship phone, the Xperia X, which costs less than a standard flagship phone but packs all of the features consumers demand like a powerful 23-megapixel camera and a sharp Full HD screen.

But if you're after something cheaper, check out the Sony Xperia XA instead. At just under £250 here in the UK, the Xperia XA offers slick design and some solid features to rival handsets like the Moto G4 Plus. Here's our full Xperia XA specs listing, unboxing and hands-on review.
