Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
Sony’s A6400 is a solid mid-range mirrorless camera with an APSC sensor delivering good quality 24 Megapixel photos and 4k video. Improvements to the autofocus system mean it’ll track and stay focused on subjects more successfully than any camera at its price point. The screen can finally flip-up by 180 degrees to face you for vlogging, and the rare ability to keep filming beyond half an hour makes it ideal for interviews and events.

Pros
  • High-quality 24 Megapixel photos and 4k video
  • Excellent autofocus
  • Excellent battery life
Cons
  • No IBIS
  • No built-in stabilisation

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The A6400 uses a similar 24MP sensor to the A6500, but the native maximum ISO has actually increased to 32,000, expandable to 102,400. We were very impressed with the new Real-Time autofocus technologies, which make it easier than ever to take great pictures. Fujifilm's new X-T30 is a much more direct competitor, using a 26.1MP APS-C sensor.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Real-Time autofocus
  • Large image buffer
Cons
  • No headphone jack or in-body image stabilization

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The Sony a6400 offers a lot for videographers. It can shoot in 4K at up to 24, 25, or 30fps, and also supports 1080p capture. Autofocus is solid, and you can set the focus rack speeds to suit your subject. The lack of in-body stabilization is felt more on the video level.

Pros
  • Fantastic 4K image quality
  • Excellent autofocus
  • Fast focus
  • 4K video
Cons
  • No in-body stabilization
  • No weather protection

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following***:
The Sony a6400 is a solid camera within the increasingly crowded mirrorless market. It's not perfect, but it brings the camera's abilities closer to that of higher-end mirrorless models. Despite some of its shortcomings, such as lack of in-body image stabilization, it's a must for you.

Pros
  • Full-frame image stabilization
  • Fully articulated LCD
  • Built-in interval timer
Cons
  • Limited touch-screen capabilities
  • No in-body image stabilization

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
Sony's A6400 is a great travel camera with an APS-C-sized sensor. New real-time AF functionality locks onto the target and keeps hold of it for sharp focus in the majority of shots in an 11fps burst. In low light, focusing is more sluggish, sometimes taking a second or two to lock on to the target. Image quality is very good, and the camera is adept at producing pleasing images in a number of different lighting conditions.

Pros
  • Fantastic autofocus performance
  • Excellent image quality
  • Great battery life
Cons
  • Fiddly controls
  • No in-body image stabilisation
