    This is a really, really good phone. I upgraded from the XA1 when this guy launched and have been very pleased. The most-notable improvements have been to battery life and screen resolution. The 1080p screen is much better than the previous generation's 720p. It also has a built in options for saturation, so you can have a bit more contrast in your colors without having an OLED screen (which, I will say I still miss from my Lumia 928). The battery life saw a pretty major improvement, as I can still go a full day plus without having to charge even after 8 months. The phone is fast and has plenty of RAM to do everything I need it to (granted, I don't play pubg mobile). The camera is just as good as the previous generation and the added options to it help out. I will say that low-light perfromance on the front camera is lacking. The sound is a bit quieter on my device (though that just might be my model) which does bug me a bit. I used 2 different launchers upon first using this phone. The stock sony launcher doesn't have too much different from stock android, but has support for live wallpapers natively (always a nice touch). It's also lightweight and feels good to use. I still stick with my mainstay of the Microsoft Launcher now, but the default UI is good. Overall, my complaints for this phone (mostly the lack of an OLED display and the quieter sound) are either out of the realm of the price-point or could be a slight error in manufacturing and don't really effect the overall experience. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any other questions about my personal experience with this phone.

    Too bad not a reliable phone

    Overall this is a very nice looking phone, a little thick but a good trade off for the battery life. Specs, camera, screen are all great for the price. For the price point not going to find a nicer looking or spec'd phone, however it is unreliable for receiving phone calls. Every few days I would have a call that never rings or shows up in the dialer. Only way I knew had a call is people calling me let me know or just by getting a voicemail. Thought this might be a carrier issue, took to Tmobile, all settings correct yet they got me a new SIM anyway. STill issues. Ok, thought had to be the phone and I really liked so exchanged it for another. This time did not install any other launchers etc to make sure that was not an issue. After a week had 2 more calls not come through, had SMS app lock on me a few times so I just gave up on it. Same sim card works fine in an Iphone SE and a cheapo MotoG5plus. Too bad as I liked the "not" phone.

    There are three things I must have in a cell phone (besides being able to make phone calls, of course). Good battery life, a good camera, and speaker loudness. All three are a plus on this phone. Battery lasts more than a day (compared to a couple of hours on my LG G5). Camera wasn't all that impressive at first -- read some reviews, downloaded the Open Camera app and I am well pleased with the pics now. Finally, the speaker is loud enough to hear in my car. No issues with phone call quality or sending/receiving/texts. I have noticed a occasional lag in some apps, but not a deal killer. Wish it had Wi-Fi calling on T-Mobile, though. Limited cases and screen protectors, though the case BB sells is good.

    Before switching to the XA2 I had the XA1, and the difference is very noticeable. The display is much better with everything looking crisp and vivid. The camera is amazing, and it even records in 30fps 4k. Battery life is said be much improved, but I found it comparable to the XA1 where my battery tends to be at 50% after listening to music throughout my 9 hour workday. It seems to have better reception compared to the XA1, but that just be a figment of my imagination. Either way I would recommend this phone, if you're not brain washed by either Samsung or Apple yet.

    I've had several phones in the past 4 years ranging from Sony, Samsung, Apple and Asus. My best experiences have always been with the Sony's and this phone reiterates that. I'm very happy with it, Battery Life is excellent, camera is above average, it's very snappy and fast, screen is great and call quality is perfect. The fingerprint sensor is in a non traditional location, however it's more convientley placed than an iPhone in my opinion. Overall I'd say it's a great buy, don't shy away just because it's not a Samsung or Apple, there is a wide variety of phones outside of those brands that will make you happy.

    Bought BN at BB on sale unlocked, tired of contract expensive phone so we tried unlocked. We never have this sony phone before so i bought this color for my wife. Iphone Samsung LG but im impressed by this Sony XA2 in design and quality and display screen, battery but most of all the cameras. Its not fast, its not the most highEnd but the built quality and heavy of phone makes me think this is it and we got it. We're very happy about the result, im thinking to buy sony for myself now. This is a midrange phone not highend.

    Best unlocked mid range phone

    Every 6-12 months I sell my phone on ebay and buy a new one. I like mid range phone's that allow for one handed use with solid specs. Here's what I love about this phone and why I say it's the best in this spec and price range: Great processing power, always smooth. Impressive screen quality and size. Battery lasts almost 2 days. Smaller bezels than last year's model. Awesome camera, the low light pics have really amazed me. Android Oreo out the box. Nice feel in hand. Looks slick in blue. Very good speaker volume.

    Very stylish, both selfie and rear cameras take fantastic photos. Sim card and SD cards can be easily removed without a tool. Coming from a Samsung phone can feel a little awkward but maybe I'm still getting used to the interface. Phone's chassis without a case will scratch but I haven't had a phone that didn't. The Sony alarm app is different from Samsung, not sure if I like it, but can always download a app. Had this phone for a week now, and so far I love it overall.
