Wonder why sony is even in the mobile business? stick with making camera sensors for smartphones and the next is HTC probably they should stick with making VR headsets for smartphones.

[deleted post]Are you just upset by facts? Lol the facts are That display fake is a joke, a website that sells obsolete usbs to calibrate screens that nobody buys, where Samsung and Apple pay for advertising and upload their advertorials And so they can feed their children

Sony keep making the same design phone for years now because they can't afford to hire designers with the losses their phone division makes. Maybe they should get a loan from their Playstation dept.

Install UC Browser, provides adblocker, its best browser out there anyhow.
Oreo provides splitscreen multitask and other feats yes.
Btw, their test unit obviously has a defunct microphone.
Not best for Sony QC comment tho.
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2018This Sony phone camera sucks. But for all xiaomi and honor fanboys, camera and recording so... moreCamera is not a deal breaker for a person who is not a professional photographer like me and very seldom to take pictures especially at night. I care more on speed, battery efficiency and faster update. Sony so far is one of those OEMs who has this.
S8 User, 27 Jan 2018Sure hahahaha.
Btw, there's also a word "features" and you know, that's what matters to some ... moreI don't care about some features especially if its useless for me. Oh by the way, I am also a samsung flagship user and the only features that are useful for me are the following;
1.) secure folder
2.) Addblocker on its browser (samsung browser already available to other Android phones via Playstore)
2.) Split screen (already available for nougat phones)
I can live without that secured folder as long as my phone is not laggy. The quality of sony phones are far more superior than Samsung. I will gladly choose the plastic back over a fragile glass.

The only things that XA2 is really better is battery life, but not by much. Type-C is somewhat good to have, but not a big deal. Bluetooth 5 provides benefits in 0.01% cases of bluetooth use.

Best camera on mid is motorola g4+ (equal iphone7 on dxomark.com).
XA2 is great SoC, fast update, QC 3(note8 just QC2), lcd sunlight good, no amoled mean no burn in, sony battery survive for 3y(gamers)
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2018Only the front cam. Back camera is better than that of the XA1.not true the back cam look darker and gloomy, check gsmarena cam tool.
Still prefer the 16:9, glad Sony stuck with it at least for their mid-range. I don't mind having the top and bottom bezels, don't have to accidentally touch the screen on landscape mode. Edge screen makes up for it.
Really hope they fixed the poor post processing in low light which is a trademark Sony weakness. Sony makes the best optical hardware, yet can't figure out the software. Mind boggling.
Looking forward to the review of the XA2 Ultra.
