What the Critics Are Saying...


TechRadar

The Sony Xperia XA1 Plus doesn't have a flagship identity or a big-bucks brand campaign, but nonetheless it does have a lot going for it. It's the dark horse of the mid-range tier: surprisingly likeable.

- Holly Brockwell, TechRadar
Recombu

The Xperia XA1 Plus certainly isn’t a perfect mid-range mobile and it’s up against strong competition from the likes of the Moto G5s Plus and Samsung’s Galaxy A and J Series handsets.

- Chris Barraclough, Recombu
GSMArena

Crowd-favorite display size, a large battery, fingerprint reader straight from the higher-end models - seems like the Xperia XA1 Plus is the XA1 to have.
