Sony Xperia XA2 review

 

Sony may be looking beyond smartphones but the Xperia line is still standing its ground. The recently unveiled Xperia XA2 series is not only a statement of persistence, but also shows intent for expansion. And the Xperia XA2 bodes well for Sony's new...

Sony Xperia XA2 Smartphone Review

 

New mid-range. Sony is refreshing its smartphone product lineup, beginning with the 5.2-inch Xperia XA2 mid-range smartphone, which aims to please with qualities such as having the fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, a Full HD display, and a 23-MP...

stable, fashionable case ; Full HD resolution ; bright IPS display ; precise GPS module ; good 23-MP camera ; USB-C connection ; fast during everyday use ; no throttling ; long battery life ; Quick-charge funktion

hybrid Dual-SIM only ; a lot of bloatware ; not waterproof ; USB-2.0 speed only ; mediocre selfie camera

The Sony Xperia XA2 is a very solid mid-range smartphone. However, it does not bring a real "killer feature" to distinguish it from the competition.With the Xperia XA2, Sony has a good mid-range device in its lineup, which makes everyday life with the...

Sony Xperia XA2 hands-on: an impressive new mid-range device

 

Sony's mid-range will undergo a complete overhaul in 2018. The Xperia XA2 comes with a modernized design, a bigger display, a new processor and a much larger battery. In this hands-on review you'll find out in what way Sony's new mid-range has improved.

Sony has given its mid-range a genuine overhaul that certainly justifies the price increase. It’s astonishing that the Xperia XA2’s camera has a feature that even Sony’s PR and marketing department don’t know about: HDR video recordings in Full HD is...

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

 

Sony's latest mid-range phones are here, but what do they offer over the outgoing models? Read our Sony Xperia XA2 review for more.

Can capture punchy daylight photos ; Rich screen ; Good gaming performance

Camera app too slow to load ; Other phones last longer with similar battery size ; Design may look past-it by end of 2018

The Sony Xperia XA2 has roughly the same rear camera setup as the Xperia XA1. There’s a single 23-megapixel camera on the back, with a large 1/2.3-inch sensor.

Sony Xperia XA2 review

 

Sony steps things up in the mid-range

Great camera ; Snappy performance ; Long-lasting battery

Outdated design ; Selfies a bit blurry ; Annoying software bundle

Probably the best mid-ranger Sony has made in a while, the XA2 might not mix up the traditional Xperia look but it has hardware that ticks almost all the boxes

Sony Xperia XA2 initial review: 23 megapixel pics plus super-wide selfies

 

The XA2 hits the sweet spot where you get an excellent set of specs and decent design for a great price. Definitely worth consideration if you're in

Super camera ; Wide selfies ; 32GB storage

Plastic back ; No dust or waterproofing

The XA2 slots right into that sweet spot between premium and budget where you get an excellent set of specs and decent design.

Sony Xperia XA2 review

 

A solid Sony smartphone that plays it safe

Good performance ; Punchy screen (after tweaks) ; Mostly solid camera

Surprisingly ordinary battery life ; A bit tubby ; Quirky camera operation

The Sony Xperia XA2 is a solid Android phone at a sensible price, although the design will date quickly and the real-world battery stamina doesn't quite seem to match the spec.

Sony Xperia XA2 review: A magnificent mid-range smartphone

 

Sony unveiled a new mid-range smartphone at CES 2018, and it's just got a fair bit cheaper

Superb colour accurate display ; Stunning design ; Great battery life

CPU performance isn't the best ; Camera struggles in low-light

Still, I feel confident in saying that this is one of the best phones Sony has produced for ages. For the price, it looks great, lasts a long time and takes (mostly) great pictures. I look forward to seeing what Sony unveils next.
