Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra review

 

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra upgrades the mainstream XA2 with a huge screen and a whole bunch of selfie-taking goodies such as a high-end dual-selfie rig, OIS, autofocus, and a front-facing flash.

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra review

 

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is a decent phone that can't fight off its cut-rate competitors.

Good battery ; Solid performance ; Slow Sync Flash is useful

Camera is mediocre ; Plenty of bloatware

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is a solid mid-range phone that’s pushed lower down the ladder because of the competition. You get good performance for the price, and day-long battery life. It also has an outdated and boring design, a mediocre camera, and...

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra

 

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra phablet pairs a large 6-inch screen with impressive camera capabilities, but it lags behind the competition in terms of processing power.

Large display. Good camera. MicroSD card slot.

Bulky. Somewhat underpowered for the price.

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra offers decent overall performance and above-average camera capabilities. But at $450, it's in the same price category as the Motorola Moto X4, which gets you dual rear cameras, compatibility with all major carriers, and some...

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra Review: Too Much for Too Little

 

Aside from a bright screen and the latest major revision of Android, there's very little the Xperia XA2 Ultra does that would compel you to choose it over its competitors.

Super-bright screen ; Solid performance ; Android Oreo

Disappointing camera ; Slow to charge ; Expensive ; Chunky design

An incredibly bright screen and Android Oreo aren't enough to make Sony's bulky midrange phone worth its steep price tag.

Review: Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra

 

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is a massive Android phablet for those who like big phones. With a 6-inch screen, dual selfie cameras, and plenty of battery life, the XA2 Ultra is a solid performer. But there are a few things holding this monster back. Here...

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is a big phone that misses the mark. It is the last effort from Sony's design deam before the company changed gears, and it shows. The hefty hardware is simply too much for me, and I suspect it will be too much for many...

Sony XA2 Ultra

 

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra: A seriously huge phone built for selfies, but is it any good? We take an in-depth look at it right here

Giant screen ; Very solid battery life ; Can take great day-lit photos ; Loud speaker

Non-stabilised camera ; Fast charger not included ; Will be too big for some

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra’s software runs quickly for the most part. There’s little-to-no obvious lag, and the slow loading of the camera app is the only obvious irritant. It takes a couple of seconds, which can make the difference between getting a...

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra review

 

Is this the superior selfie smartphone?

Huge screen for a budget phone ; Versatile front cameras ; Great picture quality for the price

Physically huge ; Not everyone loves a selfie

If big screen selfies are your thing, the Xperia XA2 Ultra delivers, but that niche won't be to all tastes

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra review

 

A big screen, mid-range smartphone with great battery life

Excellent battery life ; Big screen great for video & gaming ; Dual front cameras

Camera poor inside & in low light ; Boxy design is tired and bulky ; Performance can be patchy

A huge screen, great battery life and a price tag that's around half of that of flagship phones makes the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra top buy for those after an affordable phablet.

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra review: An excellent, albeit huge phone

 

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is a big-screened monster of a device, and arguably Sony's best phone in years

Huge ; Colour-accurate screen ; Great battery life ; Dual selfie cameras

Very bulky ; CPU performance isn’t great

And it’s also worth remembering that Honor produces an 18:9, 6in smartphone for £100 less than the XA2 Ultra. Although its battery life and performance aren’t quite on par, it’s slimmer and lighter, so might have the edge depending on your tastes.
