Reviews for the Sony Xperia XA2

Sony Xperia XA2 hands-on
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The XA2 is a nice spec-bump over the XA1 and there are a few welcome additions in the form of a higher-res screen and Snapdragon CPU. But Sony’s design is still behind the pack and with lots of budget options moving to a slicker build, the XA2 could feel old very quickly.

The Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra will be available in multiple colours when they launch in the coming months. As for pricing, Sony hasn't revealed that yet, but given the specifications, we hope that they will both be in the sub-Rs. 25,000 segment when they eventually land in India.

The XA2 has a much more capable processor, higher resolution screen, and what looks to be a fantastic set of cameras too. If Sony gets the price right, it could be a very tempting phone for anyone on a budget.

The XA2 hits the sweet spot where you get an excellent set of specs and decent design for a great price. Definitely worth consideration if you're in the market for a mid-range handset.

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.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
