    Sucks that Vodacom won’t be stocking this range… Both myself and the wife have XA’s, i have a 2016 XA and the Mrs the 2017 XA1 Ultra, which I was looking forward to getting on Vodacom, but they apparently won’t stock the XA1 or XA2 at all? The contract prices for these devices on vodacom were excellent…

    Its frustrating! Been waiting for the XA2 for quite some time. MTN also doesn’t stock XA2. Really want this phone
