Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, L2 hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Sony's wasting no time kicking off the year 2018 - CES in January marks the announcement of the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra midrangers, plus an L2 lower down the ranks. After the brief time we got to spend with a few early units of the three models, you can label us excited.

Sony XPERIA X2A Ultra Review: First Impressions
Source: Ubergizmo English English
The Sony XPERIA X2A is a pretty good upgrade from last year’s XPERIA X1A. With the longer battery life and much better LTE connectivity, it should provide an improved user experience. The camera still has impressive “paper” specs, and we can’t wait to take it in the field to see what kind of photos it can snap. The dual-selfie camera will prove particularly interesting. There is a surprisingly large market for that.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
