Sony’s Xperia XA2 Ulta mid-ranger made the trip to popular photography benchmark platform DxOMark last week, and recorded a set of bang average results in the process.

Sony released the XA2 devices earlier in the year, with the mid-rangers going on to receive a mostly positive reception due to the balance of specifications and price they offered. The bigger sibling of the duo, the Xperia XA2 Ultra, paid a visit to photography evaluation website DxOMark, and posted entirely mid-range results.

According to DxOMark, the XA2 Ultra is a capable mid-range camera device, but one that doesn’t go the distance when compared to the competition. The device recorded an overall score of 75, which is rather lacking when compared to other mid-range devices like the Mi Note 3 or Asus Zenfone 5.

In the photo department, the XA2 Ultra was awarded a score of 75, placing it in the same ballpark as the Meizu Pro 7 Plus—a last-gen flagship with considerably poor cameras—the Nexus 6P, the iPhone 6, and last year’s Nokia 8. Major still photography weaknesses include lackluster zoom and bokeh, which is to be expected considering the single camera it houses.

If there’s anything interesting about the XA2 Ultra’s review, it’s the fact that it manages to keep its performance consistent across both photo and videos. The device racked up a score of 74 in the video department, which sits it alongside the iPhone 6, Moto Z2 Force, and the Archos Diamond Omega.

While the XA2 Ultra is a solid device in many aspects, it’s a bit hard to justify its camera performance at its US$350 MSRP.
