Hi there. Have you even considered F5121 Xperia X? I'm asking this because Sailfish on XA is way to buggy. Even on X has some bugs but it's better

I remember reading about sensors not working, Android support very limited and a few more bugs

Yeah, on XA2plus after reboot I have to switch sim-cards off and on before 1st and only sim activates, turn off non-working NFC and there is no call ringtone if headset is plugged in (music just stops). Plus camera and sound got nerfed (as I understand it's avoidable on X). For android support I ended up fixing my old phone (there is no way to tell if whatsapp quietly crashed or not). Battery life is phenomenal, thought.

In regards to model #, well, some s.c.u.m might've checked imei from a retail display unit on Sony's unlock bootloader page.

I have almost similar single-SIM Xperia XA2 model. I selected that because some comments suggest dual-sim has a bit more problems. Yes there are some bugs but so far nothing that would prevent using XA2 with Sailfish as my only phone. I have backup phones but I haven't needed them for anything. Also, Sailfish gets better every release.

@Nerevareeeeeee if you enable the second sim slot, even if empty, this does not happen. I had the same problem. NFC is working since last release and android support is far better than the Kit Kat Aliendalvik
