Sony Xperia XA1 - Does it hold the ground for Sony?

3.8/5

Sony launched its lower mid-range phone, the Xperia XA1  on April 11, 2017 with a view to try and capture Sony’s place in under 20k price range. Sony has not been able to attract Indian customers as much as the Chinese counter-parts with their aggressive marketing with lower budget brutal combination. It is becoming difficult day by day for Sony to stay in the Indian market as it is getting competition from all ends and is not being able to capture as it would have liked.

This phone comes with a  The camera department is the USP of this phone and it does a really good job as expected from Sony. Though it does not have 4K recording capability, it was not expected in this price range. But for the better part, Sony has really done a decent job with this phone and its performance shows. Good build quality, good interface, decent performance and great camera performance makes this phone a good one. But Sony has to face the heat from Moto G5 plus in this price range which has better overall performance than compared to this. Sony really needs to think it out if they really want to stay in the Indian market, as the competition is rising day by day and Sony is trying hard to match, but is lacking.

On the other hand, the Xperia XA1 is surely a good bet from Sony and hope it helps Sony in some way or the other.
