The Sony Xperia XA was our unlikely favorite of the last season's Xperia X-series. Whilst the X proper and the XZ were rather classic Sony designs (read massive bezels), the XA showed signs that some of the extra padding could be chiseled away. Of course, the XA had less impressive credentials than its X siblings. With a midrange Mediatek chip, a 13MP camera and a low-res display, the original Xperia XA was more looks than substance.

A year later, some of that has changed. Inside the Xperia XA1 ticks a new generation Mediatek chipset and some of the body has been touched up to better fit the latest aesthetic.

Clearly though, the looks are not dramatically different from the original. The screen resolution is the same too - so what's the big deal? Well, the real change is the 23MP primary camera. Previously reserved for the Z and X flagships, Sony's once top-grade shooter has oozed down into the midrange, replacing the XA's run-of-the-mill 13MP imager.

Other tweaks can be spotted here and there. The chipset is entirely new and it promises improved battery life since it's built on a 16nm fabrication node. The RAM's up to 3GB, and storage has doubled - the XA's 2GB/16GB allowance was barely acceptable last season, so it's good to see Sony make amends. One key area where an update opportunity was missed is battery capacity - the original 2,300mAh power pack could have used a bump. But we're yet to see the battery life improvements that the new chipset brings along.
