On the outside, the Xperia XA looks awesome. The curved display and rounded frame immediately catch your eye. It results in a nice big display for a normal-sized phone. The color runs on from the back to the front panel, with the home screen in the same color – nice little touch, that. You can choose between graphite black, white, rose gold or lime gold.
The left and right edges of the phone are made of aluminium, and the back is made of a kind of plastic that looks a lot like aluminium. Yet the phone feels very solid and robust. I suggest you get a protection cover though because after just a week of testing I noticed a few scratches on the back.
