Sony Xperia XA1 Plus review


So, what if one Xperia isn't big enough but the other is a tad too much? Well, you come up with something in the middle. Enter the 5.5" Xperia XA1 Plus, which is perfectly bridging the gap between the 5-inch XA1 and the 6-inch XA1 Ultra

Sony Xperia XA1 Plus review


Stuck in the middle of Sony's range, but something of a bullseye in practice

Unreliable camera ; No wireless charging or water resistance ; Lots of Sony software additions

The Sony Xperia XA1 Plus doesn't have a flagship identity or a big-bucks brand campaign, but nonetheless it does have a lot going for it. It's the dark horse of the mid-range tier: surprisingly likeable.
