Just checked this phone and its small sibling XA2 at MWC, great phones that does it job for its worth, dont even believe on reviews or haters that post here.
Better actually experience it on-hand rather than believe on haters speculations.
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2018Sony phones have same style for 4/5 years. This is one reason why Sonys sales are so bad. Sony... moreWe don't care about design...we care about quality..I've use many Sony phone z1,z2, n now using m5 still great smartphone 2 years using even with mediatek chipset.
AnonD-733835, 28 Jan 2018Does this phone supports bokeh effect in rear camera., Time lapse, slo motion vid ?You can make bokeh effect with almost every sony xperia smartphone. You just need to download one app from the store. It is called background defocus. It is made for Xperia smartphones. After you install it, you will find it in your camera apps menu. The app is very useful and does what it's meant to do!
Cool phone! The curved glass at the edge looks quality. Good that they prioritised selfie cameras and made an extra effort with battery life too. Great sign of things to come for Sony in 2018.
The naming for more recent Sony phones are getting too out of hand for my standards...
I was very sensitive to decoding of 24-bit 192KHz! I know XA2u has no an option to decoding high resolution or gyro.. I do want XA2u to these reasons: huge battery capacity (about 3500mAh in Sony's mobile = 6.5k ~ 7k mAh ) Jack headphones/earphones, 6" IPS LCD (I don't trust to Amoled yet!) IMO, XA2u has great look and finally aptX HD is really great option for me
I hope to seeing android P in XA2u in future
8/10 is my score..
Did everyone forget that Apple has kept the same design for iphone 6, 7 and 8 families, and yet nobody said a darn thing.
And did I mention that the iPhone 6, 7 and 8 families have way bigger bezels than Sony phones.
And there we are, everyone hating on Sony for a boring design and big bezels...
just putting this out there...
AnonD-733040, 04 Feb 2018It`s 2018 SONY ! still big bezel no always on display WTF . I was a Sony fan boy for the past... moreYou're not a fanboy but hater. Lg g6 78% stb vs xa2 ultra 76% stb. Lg known for bootloop goodluck.

Ugly. When is Sony going to change designers? While every fones are sexy including the cheap ones, Sony fones are still stubbornly square in design. Feature-wise is still lagging compared to other brands. And the bezel, still as wide as the pacific ocean. Even cheap chinese fones are coming up with small bezels. And YET sony fones are very expensive. No wonder sony is losing money in their fone division
AnonD-651961, 04 Feb 2018I thinK XA 2 and ULTRA are SONY MID-RANGE right now... L2 is for lower-range... I'm just wonde... more- no wifi (ac)
- no DLNA
- no water proof
- no Scratch-resistant glass
- no Triluminos display
- no X-Reality Engine
- no gyro, no baramoter
that is why this phone no a mid-range because all of these exist already in Xperia X (2 years ago)
I think this phone is less than mid range and more than low range !!
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2018Why Sony kill the mid range !!?? Why Sony not compete like Samsung A series!!?? the last mid... moreI thinK XA 2 and ULTRA are SONY MID-RANGE right now... L2 is for lower-range... I'm just wondering why SONY didn't make mid-range with water-resistant IP 68 like xperia M5...? Really like that phone... Just cons in fingerprint and small 16GB internal storage...
moh_almus, 30 Jan 2018release indonesian?Not really sure about it since sony mobile was no longer available in my country... But, you can buy it unofficially from BATAM maybe... Or in JAKARTA...
Jabs jam, 04 Feb 2018PLEASE HELP ME!!!! I like almost everything about this phone. Don't really matter when it come... moreJust go for xa2 or xa2 for sure... It has a-long-lasting battery life than previous gen and of course GREAT CAMERA... I'm not suggesting you to pick xiaomi, besides the lower version of QUALLCOMM SD 625, i have a bad experience with xiaomi devices (i'm used to have MI5 PRIME, yeah... It's quite nice phone in the beginning and then it start to hot easily, even when i just browsing... Not gaming... And it has a problem in the home button after i use for 3 weeks like a fingerprint is suddenly gone for no reason. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Then i sold that phone) Never in SONY... now i'm stay in my Z5... REALLY LIKE AND LOVE THAT PHONE... just a little bad in battery life cuz unefficient power hungry SD 810... If you are looking in performance, than go for xperia x performance or xperia xz for sure... The price are already drop and Both are IP 68 WATER-RESISTANT... Hope it help you
PLEASE HELP ME!!!! I like almost everything about this phone. Don't really matter when it comes to that 18:9 ration screen but... BUT!!!! They could have included snapdragon 636 rather than the snapdragon 630. Am using this xperia X model with the snapdragon 650. Now if I shift to this model am going in from adreno 510 gpu to a adreno 508 gpu🤔...isnt it a LOST? The upcoming redmi note 5 holds a snapdragon 636 with a adreno 509....which in fact will be much more cheaper than the xperia xa2 or xa2 ultra. But still I really love Sony😭.... Damn it. Need some help regarding whether I should go this xa2/xa2 ultra or wait for redmi note 5. Also if I shift from my current xperia X or xa2 what will I lose and gain. Please help me.
It`s 2018 SONY ! still big bezel no always on display WTF .
I was a Sony fan boy for the past 8 years but not anymore . I just switched from Xperia XZ to LG G6 last month and I was amazed about how good are the camera,battery,wifi signal,speed,microphone,speaker,no lag , no overheat issue and overall performance, the Only ONE good think about the XZ was the screen resolution display for images .
