- Newer screen, probably same of XZs.
- Qualcomm cpu instead of Mediatek.
- FPS scanner
- 4K recording
- Active Intelligent Steady Shot
- Addition of 1000 mAh
- Android 8.0
All this and price is just $50 more than XA1.
If XA3 bring SD 640, ip68 and front speakers then I wont have to buy flagships anymore. It will be enough to me...
This is actually the first midrangers from Sony that is actually worth buying.
If only the xa2 comes with 4GB I'll be all over it. But for now the xa1 plus is still looking to be the better device. Xa2 ultra is too heavy and the top bezel is too asymmetrical with the bottom, while the xa2 looks the part.
Yet to see so much camera oriented sony device to shoot raw or use some useful and handy manual camera UI. I don't like waiting for some features that should be in ''my brand'' as first and this is not that they cannot, this is more like they don't want (or don't know how?)...
[deleted post]Still much better than unacceptable size of a notch at the top of a phone *cough iPhone X cough* . Nevertheless , until now , Sony is the only company successfully bring these 3 features into a smartphone : keeping 3.5 mm headphone jack while it's has an IP68/65 certificate water and dust resistant as well a stereo speakers without removing one of them . Tell me , what other OEM do the exactly same way as Sony? Sure , Samsung with S9/S9+ could be the answer for that , but that's still a month away . I'm discussing the present one till this statement was written .
Sony haters been commenting on Sony threads from decades now will unite and vote "none" as usual.
likeaglov3, 14 Jan 2018sony need to grown upThey do , just they grow(n) up in a progress of process , step by step and slowly but certainly and perfectly in the end . Because they don't want to pushed it further instead and fastly but a very mess at the end like what they did in the past . So with that , they can make a very great phone that has a great successful results like they want it . Besides , 10th anniversary of their Xperia lineup is in a month interval . Why they would dare to open the biggest surprise instantly ?
