Easily the best mid-range phablet on the market for 2017. Battery life (Despite being only 2700 mAh) is fantastic. The screen is gorgeous and runs really smooth with the P20. If Sony had slapped stereo speakers onto it, a fingerprint scanner and upped the battery to 3000 mAh This would have easily been the best mid-range phone on the market period. Only complaint really is the Camera can be a bit sluggish. Picture quality is superb but the autofocus can be a tad annoying and it can be a little slow after snapping a picture/post-processing.

Beautiful phone. Horrible battery. Sony should really wake up, don't just screw up that way. 2700 for a 6 inches phone not even a tablet. Stop making customers to compromise. A good cell phone is supposed to suit the users' needs not the other way around!

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??

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.
