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.
how it's possible that the XA1 have better image than the XA2, better selfy ! i was waiting for upgrade to sony.but sony always failed to bring a complete packge.
XA was fine but battery failed, XA1 great device with huge bezels and now XA2 better in every thing but crappy Cam !

The low range panel (if you insist ) of S7 just aced the Displaymate tests. Just wow.
Every Sony comment section are merrier, full of haters propagating hatred.
Fake News also everywhere making up stories and putting a word on Sony mouth as if it is true.
Xperia L2 is an entry level for Sony and Xperia XA2 is a lower mid range, a low end device.
Why are you degrading the other manufacturers flagship until you compared their flagship with this Sony low end device? Ridiculous.
Some even dared comparing Samsung Galaxy S8 to Xperia XA2. It is like putting 25 years old man wrestling against a 5 years old boy.
Ellio74, 27 Jan 2018That XA2 is a very complete package, the only thing that I find strange is the sound quality w... moreDon't care about the external amplifier. I like quiet sound which brings true clarity when listening on the headphone or earphone.
This Sony phone camera sucks.
But for all xiaomi and honor fanboys, camera and recording sound is horrible on mid and low range xiaomi phones, same with moto.
Before you reply, I use xiaomi and moto phones I have seprate Canon camera for
Sony Haters gotta Hate lol.... Keep hating guys even if its pure nonsense.
XAn4ETO, 27 Jan 2018Why Sony, why, the sound quality of the camera is like Xiaomi? A very good phone with useless ... moreexpecting too much from them its a midranger. its intentionally bad they want you to buy their flagship and are saving all the good stuff for it.
Can't find reason of laughing..
This phone is unique and damn so beautiful unlike herb seller & their Chinese phones
GSMARENA TEAM: Strange you have not posted my comment ?
My point suggests that you check the integrity of your recent tests, not that you have deliberately done anything wrong.
An important point surely ?

I used their too to compare many phones, even 2016 flagships beat iphone x camera.
Check it yourself
DarkJava, 28 Jan 2018Oh shit a 2 year old flagship doesn't have usb c? Garbage! Sound is fine, look at it gsmarena'... moreS7 getting oreo soon?
You cant compare with flagships. I can say same for A8. It has same current price of XZ Premium and U11. Both better than S8.
By the way, use the photo comparison tool, xa2 humiliates s8

Sound is fine, look at it gsmarena'... moreyou are hallucinated in colors, if your hours 7 or 9h I do 200 hours. xa 2 is best s7 stop dreaming. The screen of the s7 is low range, the color accuracy of xa2 is skewed, it has 3 image modes and has only analyzed one, xa2 display have more quality than that of the s7.
Your optuvistes an obsolete s7 without USB type c or bluetooth 5.0 with worse sound, more frames and with a dubious performance

Sound is fine, look at it gsmarena's own review. My battery life ranges from 7-9 hrs SOT. Compared to the XA2, it's probably worse in battery life, but that's strictly because of the mediocre SOC that the XA2 has. The 8890 (a 2 year old soc!) still outperforms it by almost 50%. It even doubles the SD630 in AnTuTu. The camera on the XA2 isn't even in the league of the S7. The screen is OLED and it's way more colour accurate as well. Android Oreo is coming within the next month, and might even get P if Samsung sticks to their 3 update policy. You have to be the most delusional fanboy to go for the XA2 if you can get the S7 for the same price. I personally got mine for $200.
YalokIy, 27 Jan 2018For the price one can get much better deals, honor 9, galaxy s7.
XA2 main camera position is ugly.S7 is a garbage, no USB tipo c, no bluetooth 5.0, no Android oreo, worst batery, worst sound etc etc
Honor Also a garbage, no usb tipo c 3.1, no bluetooth 5.0, Worst screen, worst camera, 5 mm larger than xa2 and smaller screen,Worst autonomy and does not have android 8
