Sony Xperia XA Ultra review: Lord of the selfies

 

The Internet can be a scary place with its billions of users, but modern smartphones have a way to let you leave your mark - the selfie camera. That's exactly what the Sony Xperia XA Ultra is all about.

Monster of selfie camera: 16MP 1/2.6" sensor, optical image stabilization, LED flash ; Narrowest phone with 6-inch screen ; 6" 1,080 x 1,920px LCD with 367ppi, Mobile Bravia Engine 2; 2.5D scratch-resistant glass, oleophobic coating ; Android v6.0...

Tiny battery for the size, and not particularly efficient 28nm chipset ; No fingerprint reader ; OIS on selfie camera, but not on the main camera. Go figure ; No increased water protection

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

 

Selfie-obsessed shutterbugs after a stylish statement phone will be drawn to this 6-inch device like moths to a flame.

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra Review

 

Once again, Sony has unleashed a monster upon the world, this time around called the Xperia XA1 Ultra. It's the bigger sibling to the XA1, packing most of the same hardware in a larger form factor, with a couple of improvements.

Great, accurate display ; Snappy performance with next to no slowdowns ; Near-stock Android ; Solid battery life

The seams around the edges aren’t great to look at ; Cameras are nowhere near the quality Sony promises them to be ; The earpiece is too quiet

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.

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...

Sony Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra preview: Edgy mid-rangers

 

Sony announced the X series of smartphones at Mobile World Congress 2016, marking the death of the Z line and a new path for the Japanese manufacturer.

Sony's Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra might not be flagship devices, but their edge-to-edge displays are great. So much so that we'd love to have seen them on both the Xperia XZs and the Xperia XZ Premium. Just imagine how fabulous a 4K HDR edge-to-edge...

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra review

 

Ultra by name, but is it ultra by nature?

Good battery life ; Dependable camera ; Huge screen

Not ergonomically friendly for many ; Large bezels ; Ho-hum speaker

This super-heavyweight of a smartphone packs a great screen, an interesting camera and dependably solid battery life all in a wallet-friendly offering. But with cheaper rivals offering more for less, better value can be found elsewhere.

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.
