This is an interesting phone, apart from the unacceptably large dimensions and weight. Nearly 1 cm (10 mm) thickness and over 220 g heavy? Really?
Anyway, I would like to ask existing XA Ultra or XA1 Ultra users your opinion on using those phones for VoIP calls, to assess whether XA2 Ultra can be an option for me.
In my experience with mid-range Sony phones thus far, using Hangouts or SIP clients like Zoiper over Wi-Fi, quality is always very low, meaning that calls start chopping audio almost immediately, forcing me to hang up.
This has happened with a number of handsets (e.g., XPERIA M4, XA Ultra) that I have used in the past, in any Wi-Fi network I have connected to. At the same time, other phones (e.g., Samsung Galaxy) work fine.
Would that be a common Sony characteristic, or should it be attributed to the low end spec of the XA/XA1 Ultra, for instance?
I have Xperia Z3 Compact, measuring results 70% healthy battery with accubattery app..
it's 2014 phone..
Sony is good
nani, 12 Jan 2018so why are you looking at a sony if you like Huawei the most .. 0.0Sony also like.. Huawei i didnt used. I know that good, who uses..
But bad that firms that you like, prefer produce more stupid phones.. Asus was thick.. Already have many slim and normal models 6.9- 8.5mm
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 08 Jan 2018LOL! How can you be sure that the price tag would be $1,500? If the XZ premium was priced at $... more4K OLED is very difficult to manufacture in large quantities that's why
The display alone could cost 600$ alone. Current 2K oled displays are about 350$
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2018is it waterproof? if is not on the description obviously don't duhhh!?
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2018or an iPhone 6s.I wouldn't pay even a 250$ for an iPhone 6s because my Sony Xperia x is selling for this price and i compared my sister's iPhone 6s to my phone the 6s is like a trash except the metal body.
AnonD-441601, 11 Jan 2018Man no OIS no Eis no IP67 or 68 only 32GB of diskspace, 9,5 mm thickness. This beauty looks ... moreand guess what ill be buying it...do you have any more complains lol? oooooh im sorry you are dissapointed.
It doesn't look as goofy as the XA2, but still not as classy as XA1 Ultra.
AnonD-441601, 11 Jan 2018Man no OIS no Eis no IP67 or 68 only 32GB of diskspace, 9,5 mm thickness.
This beauty looks ... moreWell honestly I have encounter salesman who are against me buying Sony xa1 they says other option is better including Samsung a5,asus max,etc. I used Sony before but falling on a salesman talk I bought the max which has more than 4000mAh battery but now I regret as after 5 months of usage I got only 4hr sot and now I am using my bro old z3. So consumer should used their experience and buy product. I am buying the xa2 ultra as soon as it release in sure it won't cost more than a8.
Btw a good product is always welcome to me be it Sony,samsung or any Chinese brand..
AnonD-686011, 11 Jan 2018I agree. I love Sony Xperia phones, but the prices are a bit too much, compared to some other ... moreThe iPhone and Samsung also like this, but iPhone is more and more brandname because it selling price is insanely high! Why don't you complain!? Maybe you live in a country with some policy to makes you only can choose between crap or China phones.
Shifa, 08 Jan 2018Fantastic design by Sony, I love it.. Very good spec too for mid-range. Can't wait to buy it..Man no OIS no Eis no IP67 or 68 only 32GB of diskspace, 9,5 mm thickness.
This beauty looks like a well fed man on a sweets.
Snapdragon 630 should be instead 660 and so on,
Low battery as well.
No Gyro no dual camera and as we know Sony it will be super pricey.
Dunno what you see on this 221g heavy brick but there is nothing i would like or recomend for my customers.
Amazing phones...but why main camera doesn't have ios?! How much difference between the xa1 and xa2 main camera?
Saly, 11 Jan 2018Please help me . which is better Huawei Nova 2plus or Sony Xa1ultra. I wish i can wait xa2 ult... moreXa1 Ultra is better of course if you don't mind the lack of the fingerprint scanner.
