Sony Xperia XA2 review

26 January 2018
Sony may be looking beyond smartphones but the Xperia line is still standing its ground. The recently unveiled Xperia XA2 series is not only a statement of persistence, but also shows intent for expansion. And the Xperia XA2 bodes well for Sony's new generation of smartphones this season.

Camera is bad, audio recording is bad, performance is decent and battery life is 10/10 amazing.

  • Plain Charlie

Chunky phone, camera seriously lacking, screen good enough, fast enough and even though I have much better specced phones in my arsenal this is the phone I mostly use because it has awesome battery life.

Sony bloatware uses more than half the memory.
Sony is known for cameras, right, but this picture quality is terrible. Maybe (and I mean just maybe) passable photos if this is mounted on a tripod to reduce even the slightest tremor. If not you are guaranteed blurry photos. Also, the XA2 wont connect properly to my computer to transfer files / photos. It is a beyond nightmare struggle. Every other brand of phone in my family connects and transfers with no problem. No offense, but everything Sony makes it extremely difficult for the consumer to do anything themselves or self service. For example, in the PS3, did you know something as simple as a CMOS battery is buried within multiple layers of components? You have to take the entire unit apart just to replace a simple battery. I guess their intention is for you to take it in, or throw it away, just because a simple buton cell battery needs replacing. I am completely done with Sony - NEVER buying anything Sony again, NEVER. STAY AWAY from Sony everything

I am confused to buy Sony XA1 Plus or wait for XA2 to launch in India.
My priority is excellent build quality since my kid has a habit of throwing Mobile often and camera.
can anyone suggest on this ?

The very slightly slower multi-core performance may caused by the fact that four of the eight a53 cores of the snapdragon 630 are running at a maximum clock speed of 1.7 or 1.8 GHz, so lower than the good old snapdragon 625, which had heterogeneous frequencies ( all cores limited to 2.0 GHz )..
