Sony Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra preview: Edgy mid-rangers


Sony announced the X series of smartphones at Mobile World Congress 2016, marking the death of the Z line and a new path for the Japanese manufacturer.

Sony's Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra might not be flagship devices, but their edge-to-edge displays are great. So much so that we'd love to have seen them on both the Xperia XZs and the Xperia XZ Premium. Just imagine how fabulous a 4K HDR edge-to-edge...

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra review


Ultra by name, but is it ultra by nature?

Good battery life ; Dependable camera ; Huge screen

Not ergonomically friendly for many ; Large bezels ; Ho-hum speaker

This super-heavyweight of a smartphone packs a great screen, an interesting camera and dependably solid battery life all in a wallet-friendly offering. But with cheaper rivals offering more for less, better value can be found elsewhere.

Sony Xperia XA Ultra review


XA Ultra marks the spot

Sturdy, minimalist design ; Better than average selfie camera ; Stellar value

Battery could have been bigger ; Hefty size for some ; Weak low-light camera performance

If you’re looking for a phone that 1) is capable, yet cheap, 2) has a phenomenal front-facing camera, and 3) has Android Nougat coming soon, the Sony Xperia XA Ultra was basically made for you.

Sony Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra review: Sony’s mid-range phones look stunning


It's hard to get excited about mid-range Android phones but the XA1 has two significant points of difference

It’s hard to get excited about mid-range Android phones. Essentially they’re shiny oblongs filled with the specs found in previous year’s flagship smartphones. This XA1 has two significant points of difference from the rule above, however. First, the...

The Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra has a monstrous six-inch touchscreen, which is larger than most of the mobile phones you can buy. But is the display vibrant and clear, or dim and hard to read compared to the competition? We sent this Sony mobile phone to our...

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra


More than just its 6

Solid array of specifications; Good all-round camera; Great edge-to-edge display

Finicky single-hand mode; Bland design

The XA1 Ultra (32 GB) will cost you around R8k depending on the retailer (spotted on Takealot for R7 999) here in South Africa. That's a tad expensive when it comes to the upper mid-range market, but for that price you'll get a screen that's on-trend,...

Sony Xperia XA Ultra review: Lord of the selfies


The Internet can be a scary place with its billions of users, but modern smartphones have a way to let you leave your mark - the selfie camera. That's exactly what the Sony Xperia XA Ultra is all about.

Monster of selfie camera: 16MP 1/2.6" sensor, optical image stabilization, LED flash ; Narrowest phone with 6-inch screen ; 6" 1,080 x 1,920px LCD with 367ppi, Mobile Bravia Engine 2; 2.5D scratch-resistant glass, oleophobic coating ; Android v6.0...

Tiny battery for the size, and not particularly efficient 28nm chipset ; No fingerprint reader ; OIS on selfie camera, but not on the main camera. Go figure ; No increased water protection

Sony's Xperia XA Ultra is all screen, and even more camera


Selfie-obsessed shutterbugs after a stylish statement phone will be drawn to this 6-inch device like moths to a flame.
