Sony Xperia XA Ultra Review – Exploring the Potential

The Sony Xperia XA Ultra is designed to hit a specific portion of the market – people who like big-screened phones. Furthermore, it is designed to target the more youthful user that would care less about spending time texting and making calls, but rather taking advantage of other more important functionalities, such as taking selfies. With this handset by the Japanese tech manufacturer, it is able to deliver that and more because of its large screen. But the question is, is a large display enough to woo the crowd? Read on to find out.

Sony Xperia XA Ultra Review – Exploring the Potential

The Sony Xperia XA Ultra is Designed to Target a Specific Niche

One thing you will immediately notice about the Sony Xperia XA Ultra is its overall size. Make no mistake, this is a huge smartphone; in fact, tinier hands would have a bit of a problem holding it. But even though you have a more “compact” hand-size than others, it is still easy to hold the phone because of the way it is shaped. In other words, you would still find it easy to hold and not fall off your hand while holding it.

Turning the display on, and you will be graced with the Full HD screen of the Xperia XA Ultra. It is clear, and it is pretty much obvious right off the bat that Sony placed a bunch of their tech smarts into the display of this smartphone. Just about everything you see being displayed is crisp and clear. However, it doesn’t compare to the clarity as some of the other handsets on the market, such as the Google Nexus 6P.

As for the hardware specifications, well, they’re not too bad, considering this is a mid-ranged phone. You will be able to take advantage of a Helio P10 CPU from Mediatek, which is mated to 3GB of RAM. You will also be able to use 16GB of on-board storage, which many of you will be happy to know can still be expanded with the use of a microSD card.

Perhaps the best thing, or rather things about the Xperia XA Ultra are its front and rear cameras. For the rear, you will be able to use a snapper with a 21.5-megapixel sensor, and the images coming out of it are not exceedingly great, but they’re not really bad either. When using the front facing camera, take note that it is an advantageous 16-megapixel snapper. Which means your selfies will get plenty of detail, that even your tiny blemishes and large pores might even be viewable in the image (better use those filters instead). Ultimately, this smartphone is clearly for selfie-centric individuals, and the design of the phone is not that bad either.
