Excellent phone , just missing Amoled display
and a better keyboard . Swift keyboard (default keyboard here, by the way ) is way more difficult to use than on Samsung phones , due to a very weird vibration pattern of Sony phone .
Buttery life during different tasks is the same of Note 4 and Note 5 phones (about 160 min of Web browsing or 5hr of video playback).
I wished sony made it premium phone .. ideal for me but from specs I won't buy it because the battery 2700 is so small for 6 inch phab 56 h endurance rate .. also lack gyro sensor
Shehan maxx, 27 Aug 2016Is this support to quick charging ???No BUT It is really fast in charging time
65% per hour
If you charge in 20% left at most 1.3 hour is need for full charge
[deleted post]Ha ha Z Ultra is good BUT it was in the past
Z Ultra's 8.0 mp with poor sensor can't compete in XA's CAMERA: LORD OF THE SELFIE
Moreover Camera UI is another BIG difference
And New Xperia's beautiful & producitive UI and Android version tells Z Ultra is very OutDate
Perheaps you did not even have Z Iltrs Be cool..Be Honest:)
Now I share my XA's cameras experiences!
Firstly Camera UI is really fantastic..and smoothly runs with 3g RAM ..We can change Manual Mood..iAuto mood..Video very easily..
Ar Mask..peno..are my favourite and there are several COOL camera features you can enjoy
16MP selfie snapper kick into the water to all smartphones' selfie cameras in today market such as s7 edge..lg g5..Oppo f1 ..htc 10 and so on XA IS LORD OF THE SELFIE..
21 mp shooter make better detail with super natural colour in daylight and lowlight
In Night mood you can use soft LED for 16 mp selfie sapper and for 21mp shooter real skin tone LED
BUT I prefer Xperia X 21mp camera and I think it is more impress than XA'
IN Manual mood you should snap with ISO and you can enjoy better photos than iauto mood especially in night and lowlight
So if you WANT very beautiful phone with BIG screen andIMPRESSIVE cameras; XA Ultra is for you!
Camera is very impressive to say the least, was looking for a phone with a great camera and the xa ultra definitely surpassed what I was looking for.
The processor is fast I have no complaints about its speed. It gets on hot under heavy load (updating, installing lots of apps) I've only experienced serious heat when I've updated the phone and was transferring all my data (apps, music, pics) from my previous phone and when I updated the system. They both went by really fast I imagine that's why it's heating up.
Some people have said it comes with a quick charger, it does not. The charger is fast but the advertised charger on the Sony's site is uch10/12 but the one you get is uch20. It charges about 60% in an hour.
Battery life is great in my opinion which seems to be bad in others eyes. It lasts me 4 hours of constant/heavy load use (Netflix, Games, Camera) Under light load+stamina it'll last me 8-9 hours (music, browsing) it has stamina mode which helps save battery life. Overall it's OK battery not impressive but not as underwhelming as people are making it
6in display is amazing truly a wonder as I watch a lot of Netflix in bed and at college less strain on the eyes. It has a one handed use option which essentially turns into a smaller phone I use it all the time you have to activate it though
It's very thin phone it's not bulky and fat. It feels great to hold
AnonD-576488, 25 Aug 2016i have buy my xperia xa ultra on 14august from ambience mall sony centre gurgaon i am faicng b... moreOvbiously you did not have XA Ultra in your hand; perhaps
You read 2700 mah of bsttery capacity and you think with small brain it may be poor in battery life..
You can't say CAMERA Quality and other innovative features..
Do buy XA Ultra actually..be honest..
I am going to post about Cameras
Wait for a while
I have an iphone6 and if I use for gaming will also not last for 1 day. Even WIFI drains the battery a lot, and it costs $800+. My wife is using this sony Ultra XA with moderate use OK for 1day, and half the price of my Iphone. She said Sony Ultra XA is great. The big screen, camera, web browsing, built, calls and texting. The battery? Just have to accept that it needs to be charged every night, just like my iphone, and any other cellphones.
AnonD-445838, 24 Aug 2016hahaha.. XPERIA Z5 premium is much better than this Sony X series .. this X Series is not wate... moreThere is no such thing as the z series the new x series replaced it there newest one is the xr that is duevto show up at Ira in September but the x series in my eyes it's doing well
i have buy my xperia xa ultra on 14august from ambience mall sony centre gurgaon i am faicng battery fast draining from day 1 hardly backup is 6-7hours with 40-45 minute of whatsapp when using mobile data. its a total waste of money i will say please ignore this model has waste of money go with other brand beside of sony.
sony getting degrade the quality of smartphone i am a fan of sony since 2004 i used a lot of mobile from sony k series w series z series and now using xa sereis.
can you make the SD card the default storage for this xa ultra? bcoz the 16gb memory just wont cut it.
Say whuuuut? 79dB sound? is this real or they accidentalymade a mistake
I said that
Phone storage occupies 59% including system apps and installed apps and games
Xperia transfer make it easier to move video and photo to my SONY original high class 16g SD card BUT you can expand up to 200g
For Softwear wise you can use double tap to SLEEP..
AUTO Answering Machine is a cool innovative feature that has not been found in other brand phones ( You can find easily in call settng)
I will keep writing IMPRESSIVE CAMERA QUALITY in my next post
Wait a day:)
Shehan maxx, 25 Aug 2016Sony m5 vs sony xa ultra . What is better ??The newest version always tends to be better.
I have used XA Ultra more than ONE WEEK...
I was satisfiied Xa's performences....
Seamless design attracts people around me and recognizes WoW! It is SONY!
Storage occupy 59% ..Including system apps and installed apps and my several games
IPS display depicts super natural colour and super viewing angle with innovative 2.5D beauriful curved display
UNLIKE samsung s7 edge curved panel XA's curved display do not make accident palm touches because SONY makes "perfect curvature & perfect design" to XA Ultra
My XA' is a Lime Gold that is very matched for Men
These are external fabrication of my Xa Ultra U feel I ought to touch on...
AnonD-481725, 24 Aug 2016Never, and know what, sony devices whenever it is updated it becomes better and better. Z2 user here, I am agree with you. The Sony Xperia update can do better and even better, and Sony has the lowest overall crash rate:
