Usernameisnotwitty, 26 Aug 2018Common man will never understand tech... they'll be misguided by numbers often and way too eas... moreexactly!! XZ2 battery life is great without being a 4000 one.
Same with screen to body ratios, people just want big numbers
They could have used Snap Dragon 710
and have atleast added another camera on the back
I don't understand why did they go with the ugly Loop Surface design for this one. They already have beautiful Ambient Flow phones (XZ2/XZ2C/XZ2P), why go back to something that should never be remembered?
No longer have a Dedicated SD Slot. What a bummer, and still using the older SD630 rather than the better SD636 and overpriced it. DoA.
Diamon, 26 Aug 2018Ugliest design in the world Fail product.At least, it's refreshing not to see another iPhone X design-wise clone with the XA2 Plus here. I mean, there's a lot of mid-rangers and flagships that has cloned iPhone X design to the nearest one, which's uncreative for an diversity of Android ecosystem .
Luxor, 26 Aug 2018Approximate price point? XA2+ 6GB/64GB dual sim costs $470 in Hong Kong and $520 in Taiwan
Deannielsen, 26 Aug 2018Wot, is SONY still alive :-Onah the playstation is made by Instagram nowadays
Deannielsen, 26 Aug 2018Once again yes, sad but true. It looks like the Sony designers are some blind men, living on ... moreUmmm.... have you guys not seen the bigger pixel 3? You can't beat that I bet... xD
pl2rts, 26 Aug 2018lol it's also lighter 205g from 220g and still dont have 4000mah battery in. Where as others ... moreCommon man will never understand tech... they'll be misguided by numbers often and way too easily. You can put a 10000 mah cell, but it'll suck in endurance if optimisation ain't proper. So, good luck with assuming higher capacity= better battery life

It looks like the Sony designers are some blind men, living on the moon or maybe they are the first humans living on mars.
Ash, 26 Aug 2018All your points are valid especially the bootloop part. However you fail to justify the lack o... moreSD636 is not something I'd want for this price, and again, it was its siblings who used the SD630 that forced this one to also use the same, otherwise it will belong to other group.
Obviously this phone isn't something meant for gaming, but for its price, it has the best possible multimedia experience (that is, if you disregard the oversized phablets like the Mi Max 3, as they belong to a different category).
You can go buy other phones with your beloved 636 for the same price, while the XA2 Plus will be a well-balanced one, with the right amount of performance in its price point.
Samsung could get away with the A6+ 2018's SD450 for $400, so Sony also could for $300.
