Important specs for the Xperia XA Ultra

The Sony Xperia XA Ultra has a 6-inch touch screen, which come in a full HD (1,080 x 1,920 pixel) resolution. This means a pixel density of 364, which is relatively low. It comes with the Helio P10 Mediatek octa-core processor, which clocks at up to 2 GHz. The performance of the Xperia XA Ultra is therefore classified in the upper mid-range of smartphones. The graphics chip is the ARM Mali-T860 MP2 and clocks up to 700 MHz.

In terms of the camera, Sony outshines its competition with a main camera of 21.5 MP. Sony uses a hybrid autofocus, which allows HDR photos and detects scenes automatically. Using Quick Launch makes the camera ready to shoot quickly. For selfies, Sony used a 16 MP front camera with an optical image stabilizer. The wide angle lens has a field view of 88 degrees. In addition to this, the front flash provides more light for your shots.

The internal memory of the Xperia XA Ultra is a disappointing 16 GB, 5 GB of which are from factory software. If you need more memory – and you probably will – the microSD slow allows a maximum capacity of up to 200 GB. The operating system is Sony Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

  • They should add Qi charging and a big ass led light on the phones.

  • I wonder if they considered the possibility of putting a real battery instead of a 2.7Ah nonsense. The beauty of carrying a big phone is that you use it for much more than making phone calls...
    If they really consider to stay in the market, sometimes have to take bold decisions (and this is valid not only for Sony). One, for example, would be to give users a real 2-days battery-powered usability for the average user. Or, maybe, to eliminate their Xperia UI and add only a small number of actually useful (and eliminable) apps on the top of an already mature OS. Etc.

  • They should definitely not stop making phones. What is wanted is a complete overhaul of there market strategy,and with them purchasing cogitai with there technical expertise think Sony phones could be back on top of the pile in 5 to 6 years if they want that is?

  • Sony should stop making phones
