This phone easily overheats and thermal throttles itself. Don't bother buying this piece of crap
This is my first Android phone,last 5-6 years used Blackberry7, 10 devices and Lumia phones,but nothing to do both get to EOL.
I"v got used XA Ultra,around 1.5 years old,but from friend who really well took care of it,He just like me dosen"t use much apps only calls,sms,email,browser,some music,makes photo occasionally(documents)scanner and so on.I have to say wowwww,for that purpose this is my best phone ever. I have zero problem with reception,in Toronto freedom mobile,just like Blackberry,call quality is outstanding,much better then the phones I used before,great speaker to listen music,Screen just wow-best for mid ranger,battery is good too for my usage,metal frame+ Naugat updated,Sony UI is great,smooth,fast scrolling when ever I try.........
Very good phone for person like me,of course not the fastest device in the market,not best camera and so on ,but any phone have it"s advantage and disadvantage,pros and cons,I just found good phone to get used to Android OS with out braking the bank,it"s free for me.
So for me 9 out 10,why not 10 out 10 bcs nothing is perfect in this world,even phones 1000$ have cons.Don"t expect from this device performance like Iphone 8 or Galaxy 8 and You will be OK.
I loved this phone the minute I saw its size, price and camera. It was relatively good at first sight and I'm not the richest person in the world so I went for it. The only game I did play on it was Legacy of Discord: Furious Wings and the app ran very smoothly (but I unistalled it soon after because it became boring). However, this phone's storage eventually drove me insane. I found myself resetting it every 2-3 months after all the bloatware build up and honestly I wasn't going very easy on it either. I have a whole bunch of social media apps I use and others such as Wattpad and DeviantArt which I don't see others use very often. Though I did have a bunch of apps for "just in case", I'd install them very early on and that'd be it. The phone eventually would start filling with other bloatware I did not need to the point where system UI would shut down. I'd go through my album every once in a while to make sure I'm not that person that has thousands of useless screenshots that eat up space for no reason, clear my downloads regularly and clean app cache every day. So might I remind you, I install all my apps after resetting my phone and I still have about 4-5GB of memory left on it. From that point on I don't install anything. I did have a lot of music, but it was on the memory card. So might I ask as to how 4-5 GB of "free space" out of the 10GB (not 16GB, cause there's the bloody system) gets filled that bloody fast? The camera was also nowhere as good as I hoped it would be, so for a rating... This phone gets an unstable 7/10 from me.
Would you guys recommend me this phone in 2018? Iam notva gamer. Just For daily use, youtube and camera sometimes.
AnonD-706011, 12 Oct 2017This phone looks so elegant and premium, I have not met anyone yet guessed price of this phone... moreGreat review. People must recognize that this is a low-cost phone. The 2 things that annoy me most is battery life (solved by carrying an external battery charger) and the low memory (16 gig). Oh yeah, and the memory-hogging bloatware that cannot be removed. Other than that, serves my needs well. I love the big screen, which was the feature that attracted me to this phone. I don't play high end games. It plays media well, and the sound quality through headphones is good (it powers my full-size Akai phones well). If you don't need a Samsung Galaxy 8, get this phone for 1/3 the price.
Very good sony phone,best in xperia series,using it for 2 months, no problems only rarely system UI forces close but Okay, display is very good 3 Gb ram handles everything smoothly maybe once it slutters while playing high end games and definitely better than other sony phones in this price segment. Sony xperia and pixel series are the best sturdy tech phones for guys whereas girls can go for iphones being very delicate.
This phone is garbage, don't waste your money. The phone storage was so low and the system UI is always forcing close.

I also use the Facebook and Messager at the same time, but Facebook is a ram sucker, so I use the Chrome or other browsers to launch the Facebook webpage it pretty decent. I also try out Facebook-lite-version it is just framing the layout like an app but the Chrome is much faster.
I suggest 2018 should have at least 32GB internal storage like XA1 Ultra.
how to make a video call through the 4g network, how it possible that a 2017 phone dose not support video call

My suggestion is plz don't waste your Money, u will get better phones in same cost
Which is better charger for sony xperia xa ultra. Uch10, uch12 or uch20??
The internal memory is very little which is not usable. The default memory leave around 8GB for your install apps. Whatsapp restoration cannot be done on this phone. Btw, the Whatsapp can't move to SD card also. It is really unusable when it is 2018.
Sanjay Patel, 08 Dec 2017which is better ???? Sony XA ultra OR Redmi mi note 4 Sony xa ultra
Shayan, 11 Jan 2018Friend can some body tel me about this device about camera about everything and one thing want... moreThe camera is so far so good to quite nice, but the low light selfie must remember enable the Night Portrait flash when selfie at the flash options then it did capture a better picture. Nice bezel to grab with finger when selfie and attached a selfie stick is work like a charm because give a hand posture in picture will trigger the shutter and the IOS work well most of the time (because a big shaking any IOS will failed the stability) , you still have time to change any posing in a short while . All the app can't transfer to SD card, but the photo video and music are allow to save or transfer into the SD card.
Other pros are the 6inch beautiful screen with very nice sunlight readability and the night comfortable reading too. Responsive UI with theme and one-handed operations. Super loud mono speaker at the bottom. Dedicated camera button. Qnovo charging technology. NFC. Nice Xperia apps...cons is battery endurance not for massive gamer, but moderate usage for one day with stamina mode on is acceptable for using Whatsapp Facebook YouTube some games, messaging and calls etc. Hope the Oreo updates will bring better endurance.
Friend can some body tel me about this device about camera about everything and one thing want to ask special can I transfer or save all my apps in memory in this Sony device bcoz I have seen on a website that cannot save any app from mob to memory..card... pls let me know guys thanks,,,,,
