Sony Xperia XA Ultra Review, Specification, Pros and Cons

The latest Sony Xperia XA Ultra is of the two smartphone to feature optical image stability on ots front facing selfie camera. Featuring a selfie camera with a 16MP resolution, dedicated LED Flash and a large sensor of  1/2.6. Apart from the monster front camera, the rest of the smartphone is very similar to the smaller XA with a 6-Inch display size. Despite the phones metallic built, it is still one of the narrowest 6-Inch smartphone and is very slender.

The Ultra model also gets an extra increase in RAM GIG and also a bigger battery too, but that's where the differences end. It's the same chipset, same software, even the bigger battery isn't that big - actually, at 2700mAh it's actually not encouraging for a 6-Inch smartphone. Especially one that has an impressive camera quality.

The front-facing camera on the XA Ultra is very impressive, its even more impressive than the main camera on the small XA featuring Samsung Galaxy S6 main camera at the front. So the back camera had to be upgraded too, to 21.5MP sensor (1/2.4" Exmor RS IMX230, if you're keeping score). The reason for the upgrade is because you would not like a phone where the selfie is more better than the main camera. Would you?
This device comes in two variant featuring single SIM and dual SIM Card with 4G LTE having an upload speed of 150Mbps and a download speed of 50Mbps and also HSPA+, other internet connections are the Wifi and Hotspot (to share data with families and friends).

The device supports a Bluetooth version of 4.1, MicroUSB 2.0, (which handles the charging).The device also support OTG cable connection, there is also FM Radio for old school entertainment and NFC is standby ob board.

This powerful device has a small battery capacity of 2700mAh, considering that the battery is actually the real weakness of the smrtphone we just don't expect much from the battery life. Featuring a video play back of 7:59 hours, a talk time of 144:22 hours on 3G, an internet browsing time of 7:50 hours.
