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.

I care more on speed, battery efficiency and faster update. Sony so far is one of those OEMs who has this.

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.
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.

But for all xiaomi and honor fanboys, camera and recording sound is horrible on mid and low range xiaomi phones, same with moto.
