    Let's us look at the bright side first. I love the phone so far with my first honeymoon day. I love the 6 inches screen and doing great in color for mid-range unlock phone. The camera is okay and struggle at low light like most smartphone camera. The dual front camera seem to doing fine - haven't have much time to test it out yet. The bad side of the story is about Sony. The package box come very cheap more like Chine made product, which I would assume yes. Sony only include their USB Charger UCH20 and Type-C USB Cable UCB20, which both don't even support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. Plus the Type-C USB cable UC20 it a USB 2.0 not a 3.0 as most phone company ship with their phone if they have Type-C USB charging port. Sony website show the phone support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and they refuse to include the right cable, it's a $450 phone. And at least they should include a headphone, even a very cheap one, for this phone since it still have 3.5 audio jack on the top.

    I bought this phone after having owned an older Xperia, can't remember the model of it though. What I Do remember is that the previous model I had seemed to get Android updates at least once per month, and I really liked that fact. I'm happy to say that this phone didn't disappoint in that area, as it has had 3 updates in the last 40 days I've owned it. The display is nice and bright to me, the processor seems to be responsive, and watching movies on the phone is very enjoyable to me despite the lack of an available phone case with a stand built in. What is disappointing however is that the camera doesnt seem to be as capable as the S7 I gave up because I wanted a phone with the largest screen size possible! I can usually put my old S7 camera to my aquarium and get clean macro shots through the glass but this XA2 can't seems to be incapable in that regard. Fortunately I have a nice mirrorless camera so having multiple features for my phone isn't a deal breaker.

    So far this phone has met all my expectations except for one. the camera is pretty bad. I am coming from a Lumia 1520, which had a superb camera. Indoors the photos are terrible even with the flash. The auto mode spends A LOT of time trying to figure out what you want and often just its own thing. Trying to take macro when you don't want etc. Low light is bad. At least this one has a center mounted camera unlike the XA1 Ultra. The phone itself is snappy and quick. I haven't run into and issues with performance. Screen is nice and crisp. Sometimes the curved edge is an issue depending on how big your hands are or how you are holding it.

    XA2 Ultra is a nice device,it can use better optimization within the os.If your a Heavy multitasking I dont recommend this phone as it can slow down due to the 620 snapdragon cpu,However for a 399.99$ smartphone its a decent phone Sony is very good with updating there system.The screen is gorgeous and makes for a very vivid multimedia experience,Battery life is also excellent lasting close to 2 days during heavy usage .However for the price of the device I would advise you do your research as there is better competition based on the price.

    Missing key features

    A regression from my 4 year old Xperia. Phone does NOT have remote play. It has a SD card slot, but NO ability to move apps to a SD card. Bottom line is that I would not pay a premium for a budget phone, especially one where an important Android feature is removed (moving apps to SD card). Wi-Fi speed is also limited to single steam AC meaning 433mbps max speed, meaning my new phone can't fully speed test my internet connection, MU MIMO should be in a phone in this price range.

    I came from two flagship Samsung phones and one flagship Windows phone. I have seen a noticeable improvement in every aspect of this phone- battery, performance, camera, etc. For half the cost of a flagship phone, this is a simple choice. If you want a larger screen and in a format that fits media better (16:9), then this is not only a great choice, but one of the only choices. Highly recommended.

    Have always had Samsung phones. Due to their high price decided to buy something different. This phone has been a great replacement for the Samsung. Very quick, camera also works very well. Sound is also louder then my last phone. Just wish it had 64 gig internal. All in all for the price Sony quality this is a great phone.

    Bluetooth Issues

    I have issues with my XA1 Ultra connecting to my car so I thought I would try out the XA2 Ultra and it was worse! If you have Uconnect in your car good luck. Reached out to Sony and their fix didn't work. Thought I would google it and tons of people are in the same boat- I returned it yesterday. Loved the look but it will not work in my car
