📱Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra – The ultimate 2020 Review – Best price in UAE

The ultimate 2020 Review of Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is an older model, having been launched in the first months of 2018.
The overall quality of this smartphone is average; since the price is in line with that of the competitors, it is better to choose another model.

Main results

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra arrived on the market with Android 8.0.0, and we tested it with that version. In the meantime it has received updates and now Android 9 is available. Although it is 2 steps behind the last Android version released, for safety and compatibility with apps and other devices, it is still fairly recent.
This is the new version of the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra that we have previously tested. This version allows the use of two SIM cards.
The 6″ screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels looks better than other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra battery is standard: in our usage scenario, its 3580 mAh allow it to reach 25 hours, which is on average.
The 16.2 GB of actual available internal memory (32 GB declared) may be not enough to store our data, but we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
It suffered some minor damages in the drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered quite robust. Models in this price range are usually quite powerful, but this model is an exception: no problem with everyday tasks, but may struggle with those that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIMs, two numbers, can work simultaneously) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.

Camera

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra has a 23 Mp rear camera, which allows you to get good quality photos, except in low light situations where they only reach sufficiency.
This mobile phone has a 16 Mp front camera, which allows you to take pictures of just enough quality, so selfies are not exciting.

✔️ Pros

  • The screen quality is excellent
  • You can insert two SIMs at the same time

❌ Cons

  • The operating system version is not the latest
