Sony Xperia XA2 Plus - User Reviews

  • But it's good phone anyway

  • I use 2 Xiaomi Redmi 4 mobile phones and Sony Xperia XA2 Plus Dual, I distinguish between these two cellphones to search for wifi, it's a pity that the Sony Xperia XA2 Plus Dual's cellphone is weak to look for wifi signals

  • Yes

  • I find it difficult to hold it because my Sony cellphone always uses Wi-Fi to play games without using a sim card

  • From the Tokopedia Application

  • Led notification on front ?

  • Good nad better compare to android oreo

  • I'm planning to get this phone and saw that thisnwill get android pie. Does any of you users have android pie already and hows the battery life compared to oreo? Thanks in advance

  • Where did you order yours from?

  • Only one month use, good model, clear camera, especially sound quality Wow, I bought this mobile online because it is not circulated in Indonesia and this is an unboxing video I made

  • Xa2 plus or HTC u11 eyes?

  • yes it is, i still have XA1 Plus and the next phone will be XA2 Plus. it is the best phone with cool features, for long battery time, ultimate sound sistem and many other features.

  • Sailfish OS supported device, this alone is worth buying

  • Does it have 5-pole audio jack?

  • This is good for us? Please comments guys?! 2019 still worth?! TQ..

  • I think if SONY still struggle with their R&D team they can order from China manufacture like Oppo and Xiaomi to rebrand with SONY. The customers now just need low price and trend model.

  • Having the taught of buying this device as it is officially supported for sailfish X os. The price is 350 bucks around me.

  • But you will get the premium quality sound in Nokia...

  • I bought it and feel pretty happy. I was worried about weight, but that is not a problem. There was some software error in camera app, which sometimes shows up. Camera is pretty decent in daylight, in evening it can be better. Sound is really amazing earphones and on the speaker. When I bought it there was very few bloatwares, so the phone was pretty clean and a lot of space left. It runs Android, which is a weak phone OS. I wonder why manufacturers did not come up with some better OS.

  • Cost cutting to get more profit.

  • How come do you think bazel made by glass can protect the same glass(screen)? lol.With sharp corners, it is 10x more likely to break its screen when drop at corners.

  • Nice midrange smartphone.

  • Unlike almost every other phone on the market the screens dont shatter any time it gets dropped.

  • Sony phones with their big bezels and exorbitant prices. I wonder how they are still in smartphone market!

  • it is expected to launch the 26th December

  • When is this model going to get released in India???

  • You are right! It only works on TINGS 2G network. I'll be sending this back and I'll be charged for the restocking fee, but what can you do... smh I love the spec of the phone, but I'll just have to be satisfied with my XA2 Ultra. ;-((

  • no no, if you check frequencycheck you can find it's not using band 4 & 12 and you will see it's not compatible with US carriers only 2g bands works.

  • bro you baught a copy that is only 4g 3g icon on topbar bt the band is always 2g insight

  • Is it available in india..

  • I bought this phone and returned it, it's not compatible with US carriers, it's working only on 2G networks. no idea why Sony is making something that's not compatible with any network.

  • And after xa3 plus will be xa 4 plus with more and more and so on . just be happy with actual option and that it

  • SD660 is kinda late if sony is still on the RnD of this phone's little bro or succesor. SD710 is next year's upper midrange thing and some manufacturers already confirmed it.

  • At its price range, I am surprised to find out after comparing with Nokia 7 Plus that this is only Snapdragon 630 / Adreno 508. I guess the price speaks for the RAM and megapixel count in camera. Although his could have gone SD660/Adreno 512 easy considering the not-so-slightly higher price and later release.

  • If you're wanting XA2 plus, you might want to consider Nokia 7 Plus. Specs and price wise, they are very close.

  • I have been waiting too for so long. They said XA1 plus was released here in PH late november. Hoping XA2 Plus will be released on the same date. Been looking around for other phones to try but i can't seem to leave sony.

  • When it will come to INDIA, almost waited half of year. SONY What happen

  • Please bring this to India. I want to buy one. All we have here is Iphone wanna be chinese phones with their hideous notch!!😑

  • Sony is life

  • planning to buy this on xmas. hope this one doesn't have the ghost touch issue

  • phone si comparable with Galaxy A8 and A8+ specs and price wised, but according to majority of people knowing how good chinese offerings are for the value, this brand like Samsung and many other not-chinese are consider overpriced. I am not a fan of Apple, but I don't want for them to stop making phones or laptops or what ever....

  • Sony, please wake up! Look around and you will find there is a lot of budget phone do better than you.

  • Reading the specs, looking at the design, shocked about the price, I do wonder how Sony phones get through production. If I put down such a phone as a designer I would be fired...but Sony's employee seem pretty sure any bad phone will not hurt the brand...good for them? I been a fan of the Xperia compact series, if it wasnt for the price/value. I'm sorry to say this, but sony better stop producing phones.

  • Is it already available in the Philippines?

  • My nokia N97 takes better photos than XA1 ultra.

  • Yes, Gorilla glass 5. Upgraded from 4 on the XA2 Ultra

  • I am buying mine from Hong Kong next week.

  • : Just seen the new rendering for the Sony Xperia XA3 and it looks real sleek compared to the XA2+. Comes with dual camera set up, Snapdragon 660, side mounted finger print reader and very small upper and lower bezels. Most likely packing Android 9.0 Pie operating system...

  • Is the release of this smartphone is incredibly delayed or what?! lol

  • Is its touch screen is of gorilla glass?

  • Is the xa2 plus available in the Middle East now?

  • You people like to compare Sony with sh@#t.My xa1 ultra takes better photos than S7. My friends use my phone for photos always, they even call me for pics if not around

  • I don't think you understand what she's saying.. LuL

  • yes in 30fps

  • ok then don't buy them.....

  • Why does sony avoid gyro sensor, Can this device used for VR?

  • Actually you can get three of them and still have 50 bucks left, since Redmi Note 5 AI sells for as little as $142

  • Sony have such garbage midrangers,

  • Does Xperia XA2 Plus is capable of recording 4k recording..?

  • at tis price, the phone should have SD 660 and a more capable camera...I don't know the persons who are running Sony phone industry are retarded or not...such a good brand, such a good impression amongst consumers...still they could not grab the market..shame on you...I like this brand so much but can't accept this type of phone with ridiculous pricing

  • I still miss Ericsson even after 6 (almost 7) years

  • 22,800 (peso value)...but still a good phone

  • No. Nokia 1 is the lowest

  • What is that model? I think the lowest number is nokia 2, and then you have 5.1, 6.1 etc but not just 1?

  • Then, why would someone buy a smartphone? Why don't you buy a $15 nokia keypad phone instead? For me, if I paid $500 for a smartphone, I expect its screen, performance and camera to be of other $500 phones standard. If I bought a $500 phone but I got only $150 phone standard, I am not happy. That's why I no longer buy sony phones.

  • Everyone knows it is not possible becuse sony can't make a good thermal design for its phones. All sony flagships have heating issues. Who will buy sony playstation phone if it heats like hell?

  • I know a photographer who have nokia 1. According to him, nokia 1 takes better shots than XA2 plus.

  • That's simply not possible because Nokia 7 plus has larger pixels and better optics . Read the review of Xperia xa 2 plus even gsmarena reviewers said that Nokia 7 plus's camera is better

  • : Hey Sony if your pushing High-Resolution Audio and DSEE in the XA2+ wouldn't it make sense to offer stereo speakers as well !!!

  • about 500 usd

  • Why the Price is not being Displayed ? How much is it if it will be Converted to USD ?

  • I know a photographer that has this phone. According to him XA2+ takes better shots than Nokia 7+, even with Google camera installed on N7+.

  • I think SONY is taking it for granted. So it's market value has come down now. Why can't SONY just make a phone like XPERIA S again? Only with 4K display,Snapdragon 865 or whichever is best , 8GB RAM, 128/256 GB internal Storage, with the amazing strip of light(may be like the colorful XPERIA P), in-screen fingerprint sensor, waterproof, 4k Recording, 1080@240fps, 720@960fps or higher, EXMOR sensor, OLED, Dual Cameras(have always been the best at camera sensors), 4000Mah, 6" is more than enough and a bit of LOVE!!!

  • It will be available September 16th. In Taiwan it is for sale already

  • F*** SONY!! Why hang us in here for a phone that's almost the same as XA2 ultra.. but has much higher price?

  • and why using sd 630 ? it shoud be using at least sd 660 or sd 710

  • Are u sure xa line is compact? Its overprice midrange phone. Doesnt matter xa1 xa2 xa2 plus, all of em are joke due to high price.

  • Why is the launch of this phone getting delayed?

  • Another brick on the wall.

  • For compact version Wait............. Xperia xa3

  • Yeah could be, a whole new level, But im also waiting for new compact version from sony, I just wish other company to make a high end compact phone, sony should have the advantage since it has no rival for compact phone, but it still suck at doing it. Xz1c could be a perfect compact if it has 64gb internal but sony messed it up Came up with xz2c, okay improvement 64gb, but why the hell u remove the earphone jack, i could have bought it, i just cant accept no earphone jack. Come on sony just make a decent compact phone, many people still fancy compact phone And keep that front stereo speaker feature and ip rating

  • I think Sony's only card left in smartphone marketplace is a Playstation phone. since everyone is coming up with a gaming phone, or highlighting the gaming experience on their smartphones, i.e. Samsung Note9, Asus ROG, Xiaomi Black Shark. Few reason why: 1. Sony can't let go the chins, so they will make more sense on a gaming phone. 2. Sony has excelled on front firing speakers so they really can bring a new level to speakers on a phone. 3. Playstation is Sony's most dominant product. 4. Playstation is synonymous with gaming for decades. 5. Maybe more reasons, but this one alone, that Sony has really no other cards left to play in smartphone marketplace, unless they come up with something so radically different than what they have been doing past few years, and that is a Playstation phone.

  • I don't know why people became bigger fascists these days than ever before... Just ignore people who are telling you what to buy. Buy what you like for your own damn money and let others to do so. People are so stubborn and bossy these days, like they will make a profit if you buy their fav brand of phone. ITs like we are living in the age on Stalinism, not in 21st century and age where freedom of personal choice is respected. Shame...

  • Nowadays Sony midrangers are more appealing.

  • I agree for that :)

  • Hey GSMARENA, waiting for long term review, especially battery life and photo samples.

  • you need gyroscope sensor for what? what difference of smartphone with gyroscope and not.. i ask just you, not others..

  • in-screen finger print sensor? you damn serious? that's gonna cost extra.

  • Guys why is there always a war, why is there always something to be questioned even for things that are actually not important and not even too needed such as gyroscope sensors, dual cameras or bezelles design. almost all smartphones today are designed without a bezel that makes the galaxy s9 look like a cheap china smartphone Actually, you will use it for what a smartphone is if you have a lot of money buy expensive ones and keep quiet, if you want high performance buy a laptop, if you want a good camera buy a DSLR, if you want a sharp picture buy a TV, if you want a video game buy playstation. and one more question, are you as smart as your smartphone?

  • No gyroscope sensor

  • So go buy them and you will buy another pair in 6months since those are 1st year throw aways, with no updates, performance subpar, quality they are cheep made!

  • Really mate, is that why your buddies and yourself posting nonsense on SONY feeds. Hehehe

  • Released in UK?

  • Sony' s design is not attractive for all models as well specifications and features also are not competitive on recent market

  • Terrible price as always. Price $512 USD in Taiwan

  • I can buy 2 redmi note 5 with that price.

  • Metal

  • Is the frame and the back are metal or plastic

  • I like the design of this compared with XZ2 series, i would love to have the finger print reader in the side than at the back, that was unique and ergonomic than at the back.

  • hope this design will be on the xz3 compact as well.

  • I don't care about the iPhone

  • Ohhh Really! What about iphone 8 plus???? One of the most popular phone of the apple

  • you stupid, the bezel-less phone will face a problem of touch screen dis-function at the edges of the touchscreen. Flagship phones won't be built that way FYI, just look at iphone X and Oneplus 6, they all have a bit of bezels left on the edge to prevent that. Apple even use STEEL.

  • Worth to buy?

  • Why latest Xperias are so freaking heavy, my pockets can't handle brick weighted phones anymore, the 90's are over long gone.

  • My Z3 just broke about 2 months ago and it broke my heart so much. I can't afford another smartphone since I'm still a student and is jobless. I JUST FREAKIN LOVE THE Z3(except the very bad camera)

  • Now make a flagship version of this with a Snapdragon 845, dual camera, OLED & in-screen fingerprint reader.

  • SDM 632 also good for Medium mid range

  • Its EIS is better. In this class of cameras processing is everything.

  • Good point!

  • Good idea!

  • Sony's designs are not so good.. all others features are best.. fire your designers..

  • Exactly

  • Will sony launch compact version??

  • Everything is ok, but I wish there was a snapdrag 660 or 670

  • No IP65 or IP68 !?

  • I want to give the "OIS" on sony phones

  • you should read advantage and disadvantage of OLED and LCD display type.. for long term and superb light color LCD always win. but for thin and best dark color OLED win but not for long term use.. quality is about for long term

  • thanks SONY for this design

  • there is no cure till to this date for a cross eyed people. ugly meh...

  • Thank GOD, Sony had change it's ugly faces.

  • True.. Even i regret buying others brand in one year i try asus 3 max and honor 9i which is better in specs compare to sony mid range but they didnt deliver as i expected.. And now im waiting for this one.

  • check dx website, they have the product

  • $500 damn

  • Sony guyz, your days are soon ends in india as your products price higher, also spare parts price higher & your products release date is very late, which gives competators a much lead.

  • When will it be launched?

  • XA2, XA2 Ultra, now plus? Market is so over saturated with redundant devices anymore. Make minor variations and hey... another new model. No AC, no dual band & 630... really? Not even 636 or 660. This will be a $500 device, watch. All big names are always overpriced, but then that is true of most phones anymore to begin with.

  • Go check Honor 10 for the same price, at flagship performance.

  • Lol really? Go check Samsung A6 plus price which uses SD 450. This a very balanced smartphone

  • why don't you make ur own phone instead. ur just good in comment. I bet u can't even buy this kind of phone.

  • 400 for a sd630??? sony's out of their minds it should sound more reasonable if they offer at least a 660 or maybe even 710

  • up to now, i regret the day i sold my Sony Z5 compact........... sony is the best and i want to purchase XA2 PLUS now because when am using this brand i feel home

  • far as I know, this model will start about 1699.- polish zloty in poland, it´s about 400-420.- €. but never my opninion it´ll be a bit expensive, if that information is right....

  • Go buy the XZ2 or a Samsung S9+, you can't complain anymore. Sony did it and there are alternatives.

  • for many years, Sony doesn't change the screen type, still uses LCD, the camera is not everything, the resolution and the processor is also important, they should change

  • Why didnt they keep 16:9 ratio.... Now it has double thickness bezels lel.

  • I think best price of this phone is under $300( USD) or 20K( INR)

  • Sony is Sony, no body can stand in front of Sony. I am ardent fan of Sony Electronic items. One should perceive its quality of sound, picture clarity, whether it is bravia TV, Hi-Fi System, Home theatre system, what to say even the ear phone reflects the brand equity. Xperia has some heating issue, I don't know about this Xperia XA2 Plus, I am waiting for its arrival to purchase. They need to develop a good service back up. The existing service back up in Kerala is very bad and stupid people in Maddona.

  • Nicely written for those shame lovers. Lol Also, Z3 is a legend cell back from 2014, and they still work liks a charm, and smooth as butter.

  • Please don't compare Sony high quality smartphones with Samsung especially Samsung mid range smartphones which have no value for money at all. Look at the Galaxy j8 and a6 plus phones which have inferior snapdragon 450 and they charge the same or even a higher price than Sony's mid range smartphones. Sony lacks proper advertising but they make the best smartphones and I think their phones are underrated and fun fact glass breaks and Sony z3 is made of glass.

  • why sony cannot make the phone become thin a bit

  • No,according to market competition Sony fans want to under $300 only

  • Samsung is one of the biggest brand in mobile. Samsung galaxy j8 launch with dual camera I think it is possible for Sony. They can launch a phone under $300 dollar. With these specifications.

  • I think It is possible 280$ =20K best mid range value. And other brands gives only 15K, so 5K for brand value 632 is mid range segment processor

  • This should be no more than $350.

  • i agreed

  • Sorry, dude, but, for under $280, you will have to look for some of the weaker Chinese models. Or eventually the lowest of the low end models of the established brands. If you can find one.

  • Bring this phone to India. Don't let us down the same way you did with XA2 Ultra Dual

  • LG, Samsung, Huawei and ZTE too.

  • Yes, this is the reason I wrote "Sony Mobile".

  • Sony says in the offical website that they support dual sim + SD card. better to make a double check dears.

  • Except Sony has other profitable divisions so they can sustain losses at the smartphone division for years to come if they desire to.

  • Sony is King on cell updates.... Smooth as butter. Hehehe

  • Nokia is with 8.1? Pixel is with 8.1. Samsung? Pff. They are the worst, but ok, they have 90+ bloatware that needs to be tweaked before every update. I know Sony are fast on the updates, but I just find it weird that they aren't making new phones with 8.1 from the start.

  • Yes it is currently 8.0, but look at other brands they may have 8.1 pre installed OS but it will took them a year or so to update to the next version while sony will overtake them in a few months or so. Just look at nokia, Samsung etc. Have you heard of any updates after their initial release?

  • Sony Mobile is the next HTC?

  • I need gsmarena's benchmark for this phone.

  • i find it funny that most ppl says sony is the best and the fastest on os updates, right after pixel. but almost all the newest sony units are still released with 8.0 and not 8.1.

  • Are you design engineer, not. hehehe

  • Yaah u r right , and add something.... 1:- 8mm Thikness. 2:-Qualcomm SDN632( kryo). 3:- Dual rear 13MP +5 MP camera( AI). 4:- dedicated memory slot. 5:- USB 3.0 6:- weight -150-170 gram. 7:- face unlock. 8:- latest android out of box. 9:-:-price must be under $280 ( USD).

  • It would be grate if screen size was 5.6 and dual rear cam.

  • My current phone is 185 grams and that is a bit heavier than my ideal. The best phone I ever owned for weight was the Xiaomi Mi 5 at only 129 grams. I realize those days are gone but it spoiled me for other phones, weight-wise anyway. I like to read e-books on my phone and lighter is better. Also, I carry it in my shirt pocket and can't imagine carrying one that is heavier than my current phone.

  • It's all relative. Some people love some apps and can't live without them, while others delete them on sight. I agree that some of the "bloatware" should have the uninstall option instead of just disable or none. It should be like this: if the phone doesn't go into a bootloop if the app is deleted, put a damn uninstall button for it and make it available on play store. I currently have only 60 system apks. Some of them added by me :)

  • LAMO

  • Is this phone or ruler?

  • Removable bloatware, then how is it a bloatware lol?! And what bloatwares are you talking about?

  • Agreed, it's alright to provide their own ui but if they're gonna load it with bloatware it should at least be removable

  • iPhone 8 also is 200g and nobody complains about that. Why is weight a dealbreaker? (For smartphones, of course)

  • I know I am not forced to buy it but the point of criticizing phones is the hope that OEM's will listen to customer preferences and make some adjustments to future models. Your comment sounds like you are taking my criticism too personally.

  • Don't understand why certain brands including Sony still think its a better user experience to provide third party apps such as Facebook which can't be uninstalled. Thankfully, there are other brands that don't do so.

  • I'm bit torn with XA2 plus and nokia 7 plus I know nokia 7 plus has better chip, but XA2 plus will assure to have better screen and audio exp.(in track record of sony phone), stock android while good, is to barebone in android one device unlike pixel, so sony ui win for me here So maybe compare them in person then i will decide So more waiting then

  • I am Waiting For Sony Xperia XA3 Ultra

  • Sony plz remove chins now and believe me u can do it and then see people will die to buy your products

  • Noone is forcing you to buy it. If 13 grams means so much to you, go and buy one which is 187 grams. Where's the problem?

  • Every phone review here is commented by some no sense engineer. If you don't like don't buy it, it's easy. If someone know better go work for them, don't comment unnecessary here. Every brand trying to be best on it's own way. Brand who can make something for everyone doesn't exist.

  • waste of time that you even bother to click this phone? you are even wasting your data. its like ah there's something useless overthere but i will go there, very strange world indeed

  • Not only 3.5mm jack but also Hi Res audio hardware which is amazing.. I have XA1 plus and sony doesnt state about unique audio features but damn this phone sounds rly good with headphones, now I see XA2 plus and I want it so badly because of that hardware..also i guess its the only 18:9 phone that I really starting to like. Iam thinking this one gonna cost around 330 because plus goes in price tag between its xa2 and xa2 ultra

  • There's no trace of this phone (or XZ2P) in any Sony middle east website or page. Looks like they are indeed leaving the ME market.

  • i'd NEVER buy sony devices. -They are too expensive -Their technical support is terrible -When having issues globally, they don't fix them

  • As long as you don't care about weight. If this phone was 170 to 180 grams I might agree that it is a good mid-ranger but not at 205 grams. That's a brick in my eyes.

  • I don't care how good this phone is, there is no way I would ever buy a phone weighing over 200 grams. I like to carry my phone in my shirt pocket and they aren't made with reinforced steel.

  • Usually I'm not interested in mid-range devices, but after seeing it has the 3.5mm jack, now it's all I can think about :) i think I'm going to buy it.

  • I knew this day would come, I will definitely but this once it hits stores. Such a beauty.

  • Sony Xpreria phones have stellar battery life even if it's equipped with a 3000+mAh lion battery

  • Finally!!!!!! The best design and specs for mid end class.

  • While it's also used to judge whether a phone is worth the price, it's mainly for determining whether a phone is future-proof for people who buy phones with 2-year intervals (for reasons of practicality and minimizing waste generation). Surely it's still fairly capable now but with the development of more sophisticated apps (mostly graphic intensive games) and other phone functions (AI, etc), this particular chip could get outdated soon since it's not exactly new either. While I think flagship chips are truly overkill, the difference in performance to this chip (and other similar chips) is just too vast and an upper midrange is actually the one that makes total sense. And since the XA- is the only Sony midrange series, they should've had more powerful chips. I understand that people buy phones for different reasons. If I change mine every year, I wouldn't mind getting this.

  • A decent, good-looking phone. Wish this would have stellar battery life and price.

  • best. mid. ranger. ever.

  • Finally, a perfect mid-range phone. KILLER. It looks amazing. Finally SONY done!!!!!

  • Another new XA2 series mid range device from sony for trial n error for their flag ship....what a shame. My XA2 ultra wifi issue connection still not yet resolve then another xa2 series will be launch?

  • THANK YOU... Why are people so damn obsessed with chips and processors and whatnot? It's not like you'll be using your phone to do intensive tasks like rendering videos or editing photos!

  • I am not i am just telling my opinion. And thats real. This gheavy brick is good for nothing maybe a sketch picture but waste of time and energy to make even a prototype.

  • Why ppl ask for 660 or 710? It belongs to XA2 series, so it has to bring same hardware of the siblins. This Plus was created to be between XA and XA Ultra. For those that thinks XA is too small and Ultra too big . It cannot be better than both.

  • design will always be subjective, whats rusty for you may not mean it will be rusty for other, stop pushing your taste at other people's throat.

  • It's the similar screen size of XA2 Ultra 6" but shorter, narrower and lighter with premium materials for its category and high quality sound .. Good job SONY

  • yeah, agree with you on the processor, hope Sony doesn't put a high price tag on this one

  • Let's get to your problem here, Your phone doesn't have iso of 12k lol No Dsee Hx, no clear audio plus Does your phone have gorilla glass 5? And does your phone have great opportunity for future updates like this phone? My xperia X for example, receive software update literally every month. That's to name as a few. This device is designed for a various set of entertainment purposes, for people who doesn't just stick their face to the phone do gaming and do something else, like the habit of taking pictures, listening to music while chilling and reading/doing nothing, watching youtube with the super vivid mode, blah blah blah. And I guess you are talking about the chipset that makes no difference? Then just don't, because people don't just look at the chip to judge a phone man. And by the way, S630 is very capable nowadays. cheers.

  • Are you sure this is sony you are talking about

  • this is a 18:9 not 16:9 on the Ultra.....

  • The phone is 18:9 so 6in 18:9 is equivalent to 5.5in 16:9

  • Sony Xperia XA2 Plus IP65/IP68 dust/water proof is OK !

  • Why again 6.0" like the XA2 Ultra ? I expected from the "Plus" version a size near 5,7" with max 150X73.. This one is too big and his processor < Nokia 7 Plus SD 660. Waiting for next Sony mobile

  • I was a long fan of Sony Products. I already have these features on my 1 year old cheap china phone. What happened Sony? Your updates and releases are so slow yet still so over priced.

  • Really, what u mean serious issue? I've been using this phone for more than 4 months and it's fine. Update faster than any other phone, build quality good (you can watch jerryrigeverything). battery last me 2 days for moderate use. U can join android 9/P beta program because its supported by google & u can play ARCore related app on nokia 7 plus. ohh even u can install google camera mod for Nokia 7 plus .

  • Well as far as Nokia is concerned, this phone is the first beauty. with 6gb ram this will take down anything. Far better camera than any other phone out there. The support of pure AOSP and treble capability will make this phone a must take over NOKIA. AFAIK the sony is better than any other shitty company out there. But this time Sony takes the leap and make this thing better. The only thing that I am looking bad is a storage option. You should have gone with the 4-64gb variant and 6-128gb. This would be more of a deal breaker. the battery on other hand is voila. Sony never gives a proper battery. But this time its also there. If I have money I would definitely going to buy this baby.

  • If Sony uses 660 instead of 630 it would have been a no-brainer

  • what would be the price of 4gb variant?

  • i still love sony. i have my xa1 and maybe next year i want to buy this. its beautiful unlike to the other smartphone brand. there is still originality.

  • ARM Cortex-A53 too outdated, sorry.

  • Rip with design

  • XA2 Ultra because it has two cameras

  • You are totally right. I don't know why I remembered differently. My bad. XA2 plus does make a lot of sense being what it is. So the only chance for a Sony phone with an upper midrange chipset and dual primary cam setup will be with the XA3 Ultra next year. Hoping it will be a jump to SD710 but I'm not holding my breath.

  • My Friends; In terms of selfie, which one is better? XA2 Plus or XA2 Ultra?

  • I mean between two Sony's mobile..!! Apart from only 1good thing (sd660) in 7+ this phone (HMD's phone) has some serious issues..

  • This is what sony should have done to the xz2

  • how about processor? nokia 7 is the same price if not cheaper than the xa2 ultra and it scores like 50k more in antutu.. same with many other phones

  • Good thing they didn't put a notch. Notch is overrated.

  • They are the same capacity of battery but xa2 plus is taller and thinner and this not a very big difference so i will not sell my xa2 ultra it is very amazing and its display is better than xa2 plus

  • Amazing design and 18:9 looking very nice compared to others.... Features mind blowing.....

  • Trusty? Nope rusty design :-)

  • Man best midranger is Mi8 SE made by xiaomi compared to that this phone is nothing else than a poor beggar on streets.

  • Funny Nova 3 is much better and only 166 grams this ugly brick have 205grams and only 6 inch phone with smaller battery than Nova 3 made by Huawei. What is Sony thinking?

  • Wow nice if display 5.5 inch And 4GB RAM / 64 ROM SDN 632 Two rear camera must be at this time And price 18K ( INR) only Then I purchased

  • Looks like a nice phone, this greenish color is nice.

  • The design is absolutely gorgeous. I'll definitely buy it.

  • Why sony you leave gyro sensor?

  • 18:9 aspect ratio with large bezels makes it inferior to XA2Ultrs

  • Sony seems to be the only company where a midranger looks better than the flagship (XZ2).

  • Their main difference is front camera if you like to have nice selfy pictures xa2 ultra is the one ,but xa2 plus has a 18.5 ratio display

  • xa2 + is better with 2GB ram bigger, 18:9 screen 2K

  • And what do you want ? A whole block copied-design from Apple with a big notch like other Android phone in the ecosystem who had copied them earlier ? I wouldn't agree 'bout it...

  • i hope someone from sony is reading my post, make a xz series like this design plus 3.5mm jack and take my money

  • Get XA2 Plus for sure! More capacity of battery, latest version of Bluetooth (aptX HD) Hi-Res audio.. Those are enough bro..!?

  • I want anyone tell me which is better ... Xa2 plus or xa2 ultra ?

  • Dude , your statement are mistaken..... XA1+ has the same chipset of its other 2 siblings of XA1 (regular and Ultra) , which none other than 16nm MediaTek Helio P20 MT6757 , not a better chipset than other siblings of it . So , it's normal for XA2+ to use Snapdragon 630 as their XA2 siblings used the same chipset too (S630) . If XA2+ has S636 instead , then the cases would be : (1.) other XA2 siblings current- user could be envy , due unbalanced chipset between other XA2 with XA2+ as last year XA1 family has the same one while other XA2 don't ; or (2.) XA2 and XA2 Ultra would have been used S636 in the first place by Sony back in CES 2018.

  • Can anyone tell me which is better ... Xperia xa2 ultra or xperia xa2 plus ?

  • Sony mobiles are so ugly...

  • yeah, at least give it snap 636

  • 205 Gram and 9.5 mm thickness ? Come on Sony ...

  • for that price he should have snapdragon 835 , Sony has very high phone prices.The price will go to 500$

  • Give it snapdragon 660

  • It is metal for sure.

  • Understandable that it doesn't have a dual primary cam setup since even the XZ2 doesn't. Remember last year when the XA1 plus had a better chipset than the XA1 & XA1 Ultra? This XA2 Plus should have SD636 instead. Missed opportunity for Sony.

  • It didn't. Instead, it has a metallic-finished plastic back, kinda like 2015 Xperia C5 Ultra, since NFC logo are intact in back (aluminum back make NFC doesn't work), so it looks like a aluminum back.,although the Loop Surface on XA2+ has been redesign minorly again.

  • I like black front and silver/green back combo, but it could be 5.5inch one like XA1 Plus, well it seems the device is only 2mm taller than XA1 Plus while having 6inch, pretty impressive :) and a lovely 16:9, jack and impressive build quality and trusty design :)

  • Let's hope XA 2+ won't have glass back panel :)

  • The only lack in XA II+ It is too: Snapdragon 660..!!

  • Wow... Amazing look.. Outstanding for Midrange

  • Damn, this phone has better looks than XZ2 Premium and XZ2. The best mid-ranger phone.

  • Xz2 ugly Xa2 plus = demmm look at dat bezels

  • now i am wondering why xa series has better design than xz series.

  • I hope it is that 16:9.
