Sony continues to be a bit of the dark horse when it comes to good phones.  Some quality stuff, but really quiet in terms of letting you know it's out there.

Currently their starter line up, the Xperia XA you can pick up over at Bell or Virgin and then also at Wind.

But, if going to a physical store is not your style, they're making it a little bit easier by letting you just go to the Amazon site to get your fix.

Currently it's listing at $330 on Amazon which is actually $20 cheaper than the carriers.

So, what do you get for $330?  Well I love the look of the edgeless display, but here's the specs:

  • 5" @ 1280x720
  • MT6755 Helio P10
  • 2.0GHz x4 + 1.0GHz x4
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB storage + microSD
  • 13MP (f/2.0, 1/3") / 8MP (f/2.0, 1/4")
  • 2300mAh
  • Android 6.0.1 (planned to get 7)
