Sony Xperia XA Ultra review


XA Ultra marks the spot

Sturdy, minimalist design ; Better than average selfie camera ; Stellar value

Battery could have been bigger ; Hefty size for some ; Weak low-light camera performance

If you’re looking for a phone that 1) is capable, yet cheap, 2) has a phenomenal front-facing camera, and 3) has Android Nougat coming soon, the Sony Xperia XA Ultra was basically made for you.

Sony's Xperia XA Ultra is all screen, and even more camera


Sony has yet to put its freshly introduced Xperia X smartphone range on sale and it's already updating the lineup with a new 6-inch model.

Sony Xperia XA Ultra Review


Beginning in early 2016, Sony transitioned away from the exclusively high-end, flagship Z line, to the more inclusive X series, with products spanning the echelons beyond mid-range. For months to come, we won't know if this re-branding exercise will...

Solidly built ; Very bright display ; One-handed mode available, and it works well ; Support for all major US carriers' LTE networks ; Very good main camera ; Solid performance throughout

Overly cold display with average color fidelity ; Selfie camera disappoints ; Battery life is just average

So far with the Xperia X line, Sony has demonstrated great insensitivity to market realities—realities that doomed pretty much the entire line before it was even ready for game time. Perhaps not dead on arrival, but close.

Sony Xperia XA Ultra review: High on camera specs, battery life


Sony Xperia XA Ultra aimed at those who are looking for premium specifications and features in the mid range. Here is our full review.

I usually think Sony phones are a bit overpriced, like most of big brands out there. However, the Xperia XA Ultra seems a value buy for those who consider the camera, screen and battery as their main priorities. There might be other phones that do...

Xperia XA Ultra review: average camera, amazing battery


The Xperia XA Ultra comes to the domestic market in two weeks and its main feature is its 16 MP front camera supported by an LED flash. The device's 6-inch screen also draws attention along with its design. But will this phablet deliver the best...

Xperia UI ; Good battery life ; Quality front camera ; Camera software

Rear camera ; Performance

The Xperia XA Ultra is better than the original variant of the series. However, it is a phablet and there are few people who can really use a 6-inch smartphone on a daily basis. Despite the beautiful design and a great front camera, the rear camera is...
