Bought this fone in 2017, wished I hadn’t !! Within the first week I realised the camera was really poor, fotos turned out with blurred edges on the left of the foto, oversaturated colors, and lots of noise. I read the reviews and they were wrong, I used to take photos with my old Nokia and compare sided by side with fotos taken with Sony, sure if you blew them up you could tell Nokia had fewer pixels but overall the Nokia took better more natural/ balanced ones, say what you like about Nokia but the Carl Zeiss lens counts for a lot !
The Sony battery ? It was never up to the job and now takes 6.5hrs to charge from empty,
Sony lashed a few mismatched parts together on this fone and sold it as a big phone but it fails to deliver, now you can buy them for $60 off e-bay, yeah it sucks every way !

    Great phone, everything works as it should, ultra reliable. Never updated OS because it would loose contact with Smartwatch 3. Highly recommended.

          I had xa1 ultra since 2017, but it only started acting up a few weeks ago and now all i can see are vertical lines, can't read anything out of it, I tried the xperia companion on computer to try and repair the software but after following all the instructions my computer wont recognize the device. I'm really just hoping that the problem is in the software and not in the hardware.

            Does anyone know if xa1 ultra have DRM keys? In my service test menu it says fido keys not provisioned. If someone is running android oreo on xa1 ultra can you please check the status of fido keys?

                    Both led flash lights are not working on my phone, does anyone have the same problem? I think it's also a software problem. BTW, is better for gaming than my LG V20

                      I've been using my Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra for about 3 years now. It's a decent phone, love the screen size! but I have been noticing some issues with the phone acting up, not responding like it used to, battery not holding it's charge like it used to.
                      currently looking into getting a new phone, just not sure if I want to stick with Sony or move on to something else?
                      Also, I'm glad to see that I am not the only one with this phone! lol

                        This phone is powerful for heavy internet users like sport betting, social media and the rest. But not for gaming. Mine overheated and melted the back cover while i was playing dream league soccer for a long time, and the battery got damaged. Now that i was lucky to find the replacement. I deleted all the games on the phone.

Mine works well, has good video/camera quality.. The only thing i dont like is, it has no screen record.. And has low span of battery which is 2700mah only...

                              Bad video recording as well as crappy audio quality. It's blurry, has lazy auto-focusing, and too crisp for the video. Everything that is good has been ruined for the phone.

                                Best phone for it's price. Very durable. Great camera quality and design is superb. I use the pink one. Currently I don't think Sony will make a phone that have bezels. I just wish I could downgrade my phone to nougat. I use flashtool and ended up bricking my phone and only the service center officical could repair it because on my pc it says device not found after wiping everything on flashtool.

                                    After a few months of use got top ghost touches. Apparently that's a common problem with the phone.
