Indeed needs some work on camera and software but it works good it set properly. Truly recommend it! Stop trolling!
I bought this phone last year, December 26. Up until today, even with all the needed updates, this phone's wifi sucks. I'm a casual online gamer and I love moba games. There are other brands of phones here. Samsung, huawei and even an iphone's wifi is stronger. Please, for the love of all that's holy, either buy other brands or buy other sony phones. Even the Xa ultra have stronger wifi connection than this rubbish Xa2 ultra. I WISH I CAN GO BACK IN TIME AND NOT PURCHASE THIS PHONE!
Dont listen to other people that explain about this phone,,this phone have fix everything after update...from malaysia

The issues of interrupting WiFi, 4g and Bluetooth, was solved for the zones where the firmware was upgraded. Look for XperiFirm software. After that the device is now working perfectly. So shut up all of you if you don't give a damn about it!
2 words.. "Don't buy". I bought this phone last year, December 26, 2018. After a little over a month, I seem to be having difficulty in connecting to wifi. My other phones doesn't give me this kind of problem ( Lg G3 stylus, samsung j7 prime). XA2 Ultra is a no-no.!
Jeffersonian, 30 Jan 2019-- DON'T BUY THIS PHONE, HERE IS WHY ---
I purchased this phone in a BestBuy store.
My phone... moreHey dude , what country you reside in ? Actually I'm planning to buy this phone . So your comment take an effect so I want to clarify this to SONY . Though they specify that LTE applicable for this phone.
Anyway, Thanks for the helpful review.
-- DON'T BUY THIS PHONE, HERE IS WHY ---
I purchased this phone in a BestBuy store.
My phone Service provider is T-Mobile.
At first loved the phone: Good display, 6" display, USB-C...
However I discovered pretty soon that the firmware does not Allow LTE nor VoLTE, as a result I lost several call (to me) and the quality is pretty poor in weak signal area.
Spent lots of time with T-Mobile... and Sony tech support, both finally admitted that theses features, just don't work.
I asked Sony if they could update the firmware, to allow enabling LTE and VoLTE by default (like on most phones now!), and it seems that they are not able or willing to do this at this time. I expect a call from t-mobile, but I admit being feed-up with how difficult it is to get this phone fully working: quite a shame...
I shall probably return this phone shortly and get another phone...which just work !
Syuser, 27 Jan 2019Also in my case it's other! It have better warranty services and it replace defective devices ... moreYou told that they dont want to replace? How did it become better? For sure when you buy it thru sony they would replace it. Which store did you bought it?
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2019Did you buy it thru Sony Store? Or other phone sellers?Also in my case it's other! It have better warranty services and it replace defective devices in case of. Best store in my country. I heard about Amazon to come in the next months. Sadly Sony Center is not to be desired having big prices and bad services. Also Sony Care is not responsive as it should. I hope Sony will solve these by 2019. With very few small exceptions Sony Xperia is a must have smartphone in anybody's pocket. This device too.

And stop using its factory ones as much as you can. Same for camera, music and wi-fi. These issues will be solved.

It's the self system management, cleaning battery consuming that is doing like that. Stop it from settings and and avoid stamina. These are system issues that will surely be solved by an upgrade. The Pie upgrade mostly.
Camera Sucks, i reset the phone several times because camera software always crashing and giving error, even if device is newly factory reset, the camera software sucks, hopefully they can update with this f*cking annoying issue, I cannot use camera!!!

I'm starting to... moreDamn, wifi connection is really weak compared to my lg g3 stylus, samsung j7 prime and blackberry leap.. This phone looks good and all but when it comes to connecting to wifi, it's such a let down.. 😭
I bought this phone last month and I've been using this for the past 17 days.. I'm starting to see some issues already. First, the wifi. It keeps on disconnecting for about once or twice a day.. If you're thinking that it's my router, well there are four smartphones and two laptops in our house and this phone always gets disconnected even to the point where this is the only device that is hooked tru wifi. Well, it can be remedied by restarting the phone but that kind of sucks especially when you're downloading an app or file.. Second, the screen. It somehow dims itself automatically even when I turned the adaptive brightness off. I don't know if anybody else has experinced that. Well that's it for now. Hope these two are the only issues that this phone has..
robieee, 06 Jan 2019u could wait 2 months, XA3 ultra is gonna be released in the market ..Too good not to have it. XA2 ultra have great cameras, amazing battery and loud speakers. Now it's very cheap in my country. So it's not a great deal to wait if you have the money.
