Sony Xperia XZ Premium was not the only smartphone presented by Mobile World Congress, we were also able to get hold of the Xperia XA1 Ultra and its very large 6-inch screen but also his little brother, the Xperia XA1. Here is our hot review.

Sony Xperia XA Ultra
With its diagonal screen size of just over 6 inches (1080p LCD IPS), the Sony Xperia XA Ultra does not go unnoticed. It is not designed for all hand sizes. You will soon have to use two hands … but lovers of large screens will be delighted: with its side edges almost non-existent, it remains largely possible to cover a large part of the screen with one hand. On this side, the XA1 Ultra does not differ much from the XA Ultra. You'll find its 6-inch screen cradled in a solidly constructed glass and metal mix.
At the front, a large sensor: 16 megapixels in size 1 / 2.6 "with f / 2.0 aperture, optical stabilization and LED flash. It is clearly a smartphone that can claim the title of selfie cam of the year 2017. The placement of the buttons is not necessarily ergonomic, but we noted the presence of a button dedicated to the capture of photo.
We appreciated its sober design, especially in black color. At the rear, Sony used the sensor found on Xperia X which is once again good news. Finally, it is propelled by the MediaTek Helio P20 which should allow it to obtain good performances.
It will be available between the month of April and the month of May, at a price of about 350 euros. An interesting positioning: there is virtually no format to this price order, which allows it to differentiate itself from other Android smartphones. Finally, last point to note: the screen seems much better to adjust and calibrate than the first Xperia XA Ultra. This was one of the defects of the first model.
