Big mistake buying this phone. Wish I had paid extra and bought a Samsung. The camera is poor quality, taking blurred shots that have to be retaken until you give it up as a bad job! The wireless connection is rubbish, and takes forever to load anything. The phone spends half of its life crashing and freezing, making it impossible to use for work purposes. The internal space is minimal, so you will need an SD card. If you update an app, it moves it back to your internal memory, thus causing more time wasted constantly moving apps back to the SD card. The screen is not always responsive, and has to be pressed/touched more than once. I can not wait to save up and buy a new phone. I will not be buying Sony again, as this phone has put me off for life. I should have stuck to what I know, Samsung all the way.
This is a good phone but it's battery. Backup & storage. Capacity is very very poor. Within this phone is not supported to Jio Sim. So in this price I found very latest smart phone in the market.
my vision in this phone which i tried it for 3 days only . its more hanging while i use google search several times . is this common problem in this category or my device only has problem as private case? . please i need your opinions .

Phone is good, great camera and battery performance good for one day ( Stamina mode lasting about 1.5 days and ultra stamina mode about more than 3 days). 16GB Storage Capacity is not convenient. After installing NOVA 3 , Asphalt 8 and some social media apps, I now have 1.5GB remaining internal storage. You can move some apps to SD Card though. Gaming performance is good. If you have Barry Allen's eyes, you can detect some frames dropped(whoosh!). It's okay for me thatXA ultra is not waterproof, its unlikely for me to drop the phone in a bowl of cereals, toilet bowl, swimming pool, drop in the ocean while flying, or exposed to rain when I'm at Sahara. Better if you will have a thin clear plastic case to protect the side bezel from sudden bump and overall scratches.There's a minor update on February 2017 and I think its a prep for Nougat. If you are planning to root this device, you better stay at Marshmallow at the moment.
If you want more extra care, buy an armor case with an auto deploy mini parachute to protect your phone from sudden drop.
Im using xperia ultra and for me its good... Camera is good... But battery life its a no for me .
LuisM, 08 Feb 2017Good day! I just bought my XA Ultra, the reason why I have this device because of the camera. ... moreCould you upload that photo to the google+ to let me see the result and details, because you words can't show anything, I better review from the photo you taken.

Inferior in pretty much every single way to the Z5 Premium. Its a shame, because I love the Xperia brand, but these new phones are a complete crock. They're going backwards, and also losing the amazing, professional look and feel of the devices,
Upgraded myself recently from Sony z3 to xa ultra n m very disappointed. Human beings are creatures of habit so I was surprised to find xa ultra without the double tap to wake up phone when z3 had it n I'd used it for over 2yrs...instead there is double tap to sleep here n I wonder how they expect me to wake up the phone? Have to press the power button to bring me to the unlock screen. It's a hassle. Second xa ultra is lagging... Simple task like deleting msg takes couple of seconds, much longer than z3. 3rd how can a phone time out in 2min if you are using it? Isn't the timeout for when phone is inactive? Overall, I miss my z3 n think I'll b going back to it...
so close to be such a nifty phone to own one, but 3 GB and 2700mAh crap.
great camera, by the way.
mlees, 13 Feb 2017I've had this phone for 4 months now. I have a feeling I could have done much better. I bought... moreFellow Canadian here on Freedom also with sony xa ultra. The poor signal in basements is common for freedoms network and not specific to this phone. My XA ultra, Moto G Play and BlackBerry Z10 all have terrible reception when in places like basements. It's because freedom is using older network, that's why the rates are cheaper compared to the competitors. You get what you pay for kind of thing.
LuisM, 14 Feb 2017I have a question sir, do you personally saw the quality of the image that taken by XA ultra? ... moreYes, I did, and the results was more than what I was expecting, offcourss it is not as the rivals xz, Google pixel, htc 10... But it was so great to its range.
I bought SONY Xperia ultra dual mobile 2 months ago.... N fully satisfied by camera, screen size, ram, n specially the design edge to edge curved mobile..... I have only one problem that is the caller end sound and battery backup issue from dayÂ…
