Sony XPERIA XA1 a midrange device with lots of features! [Price Update]

Next in line is Sony’s Xperia XA1 which was released at the end of April 2017 and I’m taking a spin with it. This is said to be a device that hits the midrange market but features all the bells and whistles that a flagship device is supposed to have. I’ve only had the device in my hands for about 5 hours and I’ve gone all in.

I loaded everything I normally use on this device and I’m going to use it as a power user. You should stick around I’ll have the lowdown on this device over the course of the next few weeks. Who knows maybe a few updates along the way? The device is available outright for $319.99 CAD.
