AnonD-287204, 15 Dec 2017Sony Xperia Xa1 Ultra Pros: *This 6 inches phone is awesome. *Performance wise it's great... moreThis is for the first time I'm going to buy Sony phone..i'm a Samsung lover but I want to try some other brands..but .i'm little bit confused between Sony XA1 ultra and Huawei Mate 10 Lite... both have same features with a little bit price variation.. but mate 10 litres gives me 64GB built in.. how much storage Sony is providing...??? Nd how it will be if I purchase Sony XA1 Ultra instead of Huawei Mate 10 Lite....????
Just got the phone for a few days and liked it. Impressed by it's LTE performance:
I can't find Notes application also I can't put my phone on silent mood don't know why or even how , it's all the time on vibration don't know if it a problem or what so any help please
Me, 16 Nov 2017If you wanna make the brightness of the screen more, dont make active the adaptive brightness ... moreMeybe it is just my problem in particular, but it is still imposssible to dim the screen. But overall this phone is amazing.
Disappointed thus far.
I have loved Sony ever since I used my first playstation when I was a kid. I still have it, it still works just as well as the day I bought it. I still have my PS2 (FAT), PS3 (Slim) all in good working order. No problems whatsoever. I had a Google Nexus 6, but it had been awhile since I bought the phone and the RAM was not able to keep up with today's apps and memory demands. So I decided to get the Google Pixel XL, unfortunately that phone is hard to come by, so I began searching for an alternative and I came upon this phone, the Xperia XA1 Ultra. I looked over the specs and it matches nearly every aspect of the Google pixel at about half the cost. Since it was a relatively new phone, there was not a lot of user reviews about it on the net. I decided: "Hey it's a Sony product, they make great consoles, the PSP and Vita were awesome, so this one can't be far off, right?"
Wrong, Wrong, WRONG. This phone has a mind of it's own. The phone will literally just start tweaking out without me touching it, it will open apps and act like the screen is being touched but no one is touching it. Every time, without fail, I take it off the mount in the car the camera app opens... the most frustrating thing is when I'm actively using my phone and it will just start doing it's own thing and it will even send a text that I was in the middle of writing or won't respond to touch, like it's locked up. I have to restart it everyday or this will happen. I don't mind restarting because I have become used to turning it off at night to sleep, let it charge and I turn it on in the morning but occasionally I forget and this thing acts like a junkie who hasn't gotten it's fix for awhile and just flips out. Once it opened Google Maps and for about five minutes I watched it zoom in and out on the entire world map, to different parts of the world, the thing was sitting on my coffee table, I thought it was possessed! I turned it off and it froze, I had to google how to do a hard restart which worked... thankfully.
Many times when I am listening to music it will just randomly change my song, or restart it. it never plays any GIFs, it will never automatically bluetooth connect to my car, I have to connect it likes three times manually before it decides to stay connected to my car.
About the only thing that works well on this phone is the Playstation Plus app, go figure. I will get PS4 notifications and messages on my phone before I get them on the console, and it never gives me any problems when I am using Sony apps.
Overall, I am highly disappointed with this phone and I'm just waiting for my tax refund next year to go buy the Google Pixel 2XL. I still love Sony products but I will never invest in one of their phones again.
Anonymous, 16 Dec 2017What is the basic difference between XA ULtra and Xa1 Ultra? Anyone if discovered any advanta... moreXa1 ultra is overall a better option.
-The storage 16GB VS 32GB, it was a very major issue with the xa ultra last year since the system takes 9GB of storage.
-Performance and battery life much better in the xa1 ultra knowing that both have same battery capacity but the P20 processor in the xa1 ultra is a massive improvement from the P10 in the xa ultra in terms of efficiency and performance.
-USB type C in the Xa1 Ultra vs micro USB.
-4 GB of ram in the Xa1 ultra with much better memory management vs 3GB.
-Android Oreo as the last version for the Xa1 ultra, xa Ultra already stuck at Android Nougat.
I think this comparison i mentioned is more than enough to choose the Xa1 Ultra over the xa Ultra.
What is the basic difference between XA ULtra and Xa1 Ultra? Anyone if discovered any advantages in XA1 ULTRA kindly post in detail. Which model is better??
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2017Thnx for ur feedback. Is it VOLTE compatible or LTE?? Also pls confirm me about the camera cl... moreNetwork is LTE (4G)
Camera is awesome. 23mp back camera takes clear photos. 16mp front camera has flash too and even at night the photos are clearer compared to other devices without front flash.

Sony Xperia Xa1 Ultra
*This 6 inches phone is awesome.
*Performance wise it's great. Didn't experience any lag while using different apps at the same time.
*Design of the phone is unbelievably beautiful. I've been using this for a couple of weeks now caseless and a lot of people got curious about my phone. It's big, it looks expensive and unique. I have mine in black by the way. You'll appreciate the design more if you use it caseless. Really beautiful and I fell in love with it.
*Battery performance I used it for a day without charging (stamina mode deactivated) . Wifi is on 24/7. I love browsing the Internet and use social media a lot and sometimes I play games. If you activate the stamina mode it will restrict some apps to lengthen the battery hours. If you use the Ultra Stamina mode your battery will last for three days. People shouldn't worry about the battery capacity. It's better than the other mobile brands. Used a lot of different high end brands with higher battery capacity but this is the first time I got really satisfied with the battery. Very good Sony.
*Sound is also nice but I would like it very much if they put two speakers instead of one but all in all its not bad. Even my phone's inside my bag I could still hear the notifications without a problem. Watching videos on speakers is also okay but not the best. Just use your earphones for a better experience. I recently got a system update and it fixed the sound problem while you watch some videos on Facebook. I really do not understand why the problem only occurred on FB since I watched a lot of videos on YouTube and got no problem at all.
*This phone is not cheap but it's affordable compared to the other mobile brands out there.
*Putting your charger won't give you any trouble even at night since it is USB Type C cable- it is Reversible.
This phone won't fit your jeans pockets especially women jeans.
Overall this is absolutely a great phone and you won't regret buying this one. Go to Sony stores try, feel and experience it for yourself. Reviews online would help you but of course the buying decision is still in your hands. When you fell in love with it you won't even fall asleep thinking about getting this phone even you read some of reviews online.
By the way this is the first time that I bought Sony mobile phone and to be honest I think when I buy a new mobile in the future I will choose Sony again. I won't go back to other mobile brands since it gave me lot of headaches.
Has anyone ever had a sound problem that xa1 ultra phone randomly lose volume at Facebook, YouTube or own videos ?
Ciao ragazzi da un paio di mesi che uso l'xa1 ultra e non sono soddisfatto, noto il segnale senza tacche riesco comunque a telefonare ma con navigazione molto lenta e spesso anche in Wi-Fi si blocca e non carica le pagine nonostante abbia il massimo di segnale, il tutto confrontato con altri telefoni, riscontrate anche voi questi difetti grazie
Hello guys for a couple of months I use the xa1 ultra and I'm not satisfied, I notice the signal without notches I can still call but with very slow navigation and often even in Wi-Fi stops and does not load the pages despite having the maximum of signal, all compared with other phones, you also find these defects thanks

AnonD-719047, 28 Nov 2017Hey Man, I reckon you go for the XA1 Ultra buh only one thing i dont like, the 6" screen that ... moreHa ha ... Actually thats not a problem for me bro , I rarely put my phone in my pocket , but there is still one thing that concern me - the "mediatek helio p20" processor ...
I mean do you noticed any lagging process from the phone when you're web browsing , opened too many apps in your daily usage and is it smooth when you went to multitasking even you have 10 or 20 apps that are still running at the same time?
Due to you are user of the XA1 ultra , I hope you'll tell me a little bit about the phone's performance , I am really appreciate , hopefully you'll reply me for my questions that I'm asking , thank you friend.
