By next year, they will be more sd630 phone, not because sony is slow but all chip adoption in general, except for the flaship sd 8xx series
XA2 and L2 too small screens. The ultra is perfect, as long as it doesn't have the pathetic battery of Ultra 1.
is it possible to place th FPS below the power button on the side....as many have problem of having it on the back ???
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2018Except Motorola, everyone is copying V30 front. All phones will look the same. Not v30.. it will g6... But it's Samsung...
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2018Terrific Quality, Performance, and durability for Sony cells.
Only true Sony cell owner... moremy sony Xperia c died after 3 years and 8 months of use, maybe for some of you it may seem to be a short lifetime but it lived very long as i use it really bad. the quality of phone was outstanding, I'm happy about sony decide to use qualcom chips but hope they would make a phone with snapdragon 400 series so the price tag would be lower but with 32 gb of internal storage and 3GB ram

You need too much bright, go to Samsung; You need more real color, go to Sony.
You said Sony's camera is bad because you didn't know how to use the camera of Sony to take photos.
Don't just complaint while you are illiterate; come to me I will teach you how to use Sony' canera.
Sony should put fingerprint scanner on mid range phones it's 2018 already

Leaks suggest OLED panels so that should increase sunlight contrast ratio more. Cameras getting a lot of attention in the new ones as well, so the jump is looking big, just need the right execution and some camera software improvements.

So the L2 might have same situation
Good thing they fixe what had to be fixed, reduce the bezel, give fp scanner, a snapdragon cpu and 4K rec.
Those who complain fp scan being in the back, well, at least it retain the edge to edge display and big probability the fp scanner will work in US
And those who complain about not completely bezelless, I think it only adding unnecessary price hikr since the XA1 is sub $250~$350 and 18:9 phone in this price range most is under spec for the price (honor 7x, vivo v7, etc) and we don't want price hike like the A8(aka A5 2018)

Sony on the other hand has poor volume and screen brightness, so a sunshade is needed in bright light. Its camera is also the worst from these three, though i dont use it often.
Iphone had such poor battery life, and the whole single button thing doesn't do it for me, but I suppose one could get used to that with time. What one can't do with it though is take out a microSD card from anotger device, pop into the phone, and edit / share footage without needing to download everthing to the phone. So i did not use this much.
Bottom line is there is no perfect phone, though its fair to say many phones do most things right these days. All have pros and cons.
Iphone X has a great screen.... which would be blocked by the controller arms. Don't think the notch will help either.
So I'm waiting to see what Sony delivers next. It needs to have a better screen than their current phones, else it's likely a Note 8 that I will get.
Sony can overcome if they really face the non-sense of the battery capacity. I am using the XA1 ultra, it just does not hold, drain drain drain.
Sony, if the L series have SD 630,the XA one must have SD 660. Nice design though, better than cheaplooking rounded corners and most importantly it is different from all the same design phones
